Enormous Breakfast

Enormous Breakfast

Took a quick video of our breakfast earlier this morning at Whole Foods. The BF is flying back to Stockholm later this afternoon while I'm heading out to Brazil.

I've been told it's gonna be 37-40 degrees celsius in Rio de Janeiro. Although I'm looking forward to Brazil, I don't think I'm ready for the heat. And I'm certainly not looking forward to swimsuit season. With the way I ate the past few weeks, oh my lord Jesus Mary Joseph, I'm so out of shape… I don't think I can get rid of this winter weight in the next 2 days.

Wish me luck!

Union Oyster House, Boston

Union Oyster House, Boston

I find my carnivore of a boyfriend’s personal food mantra fascinating: if he has to fight with his food (pretty much anything that goes beyond slicing with a knife/picking up with a fork), he doesn’t want it. Case in point — his idea of a regular, fail-safe meal: entrecote. With that being said, it’s a good thing he’s very open to trying new culinary delights otherwise, I wouldn’t know what to do with myself if I were to restrict to his usual meat-rich, dietary preferences.  Y’all know me… I like to have a bit of a balance from all food groups: meat, vegetables, carbs, seafood, etc.

Speaking of seafood, a trip to this part of the USA (aka New England) wouldn’t be complete without paying homage to its glorious seafood — oysters, clams, lobsters, etc. We’ve been eyeing this place called “Union Oyster House” (after passing by it almost every day) so we went there yesterday for lunch.

Meritage Restaurant, Boston

Meritage Restaurant, Boston

How did you celebrate New Year’s Eve? After coaxing my very handsome and dashing boyfriend not to shave for days (I like this whole stubble look on him), I asked him to put his suit on so we can go have dinner somewhere ‘nice’. As newcomers to Boston, we relied on word of mouth and the internet to find a special place. Some restaurants were fully booked weeks in advance so we ended up at this cute restaurant called the Meritage at the Boston Harbor hotel.

Lunch at Pontus! Restaurant Stockholm

Lunch at Pontus! Restaurant Stockholm

Earlier this week, my friend Elin joined me for a quick celebratory lunch at Pontus! Restaurant here in Stockholm. 2011 is going to be an interesting year for both myself and my blog. I recently inked a deal with a business partner in regards to my website. After more than six years of blogging, I think it’s time to take my site to another level. You know me — I’m all about moving forward. It doesn’t hurt to explore my options in pushing the envelope further. Afterall, I don’t want to be one of those people who are forever stuck in the past. People sometimes complain how my blogging style changed from the way I blogged three, four, five years ago. What they fail to realize is that both me and my audience have grown… AND we’re both continously growing. Tell me, who wants to be the same old, same old?

A Nitrolicious Night at Delicatessen, NYC

A Nitrolicious Night at Delicatessen, NYC

In between business meetings and work-related tasks in New York last week, I managed to spend quality time with my friend Wendy who runs the high-traffic website Nitrolicious. We’ve known each other for years and it’s a shame that we don’t get to see each other that much whenever I go to NYC because of my usual insane schedule. Last week was different though. We both worked on a project so we saw each other lots!

Fish and Chips at The Four Seasons Hotel New York

Before afternoon tea at Bergdorf Goodman, Rumi and I had lunch at the Four Seasons. I had quite possibly the best ‘fish and chips’ I’ve ever had. The hotel is beautiful, yes. We were mostly surrounded by ‘corporate’ types but on the upside, we were the youngest people in the room.

Late Afternoon Tea at Bergdorf Goodman

Before switching hotels from the Four Seasons to Soho Grand, I took my gurl Rumi to my beloved institution uptown, Bergdorf Goodman, for afternoon tea. I told her about the beautiful and chic ‘cocoon-like’ chairs but alas, they were all taken.

Sincerest apologies for the quality but I forgot to bring my camera and used my mobile phone instead.

How the Night Ended

Here's a video of me at In-N-Out. For those of you who don't know, this place is a Los Angeles institution.

My gurl Toasty and I had lots of fun. I'm so glad she made the two and a half hour drive from San Diego to see me.

Eggs Benedict at Apartment 1B Makati

It’s very rare for me to get out of the house at inhumane hours of the day (think 7AM) but I had a very important business meeting yesterday morning. After my meeting, I rang my friend TheBaghag who’s having yoga right around the corner so I invited her to a quick brunch.

Au Pied de Cochon Paris, Five Years Later

Au Pied de Cochon Paris, Five Years Later

Finding a decent, late-night eatery in Paris (or in Europe in general) is a pain because most kitchens close between 11PM-1AM. Where to go for onion soup and steak at 2AM? Au Pied de Cochon! This brasserie has been around since 1946.
