Hello, World.

It's been a while. I know I've been distant. No posts. No photos. No comments. I have no excuse really other than that I got swept up by life. Call it a sabbatical if you will. A series of endings and new beginnings all rolled up in a big ball of exciting change. I won't go into the nitty gritty but I will provide some highlights--BuzzFeed style.

1. I tried the cronut. Ok not the cronut but a copycat, half decent version a la Posh Bagel.

2. I started making granola. No, it isn't my attempt to become a SF sprouts eating hipster but because I couldn't find reasonably priced and wholesome granola anywhere.


3. I've gotten in touch with my Vietnamese roots. This may or may not have something to do with my laziness to drive an hour to visit my parents and get the real thing.

4. I finally tried Ad Hoc. Unfortunately, it was just brunch and not the actual dinner. However, I could have eaten 3 courses of this panna cotta for dinner.

5. I drank a lot of whiskey. Heaps. Hella. Mucho.

6. I tried the milk without buying the kow. Purple Kow that is.

7. I had a proper wine and cheese tasting at Viansa Winery. It happened to be the best one ever. Mind blown.

8. I ate real wine grapes. From the vine.

9. I went to the happiest place on Earth.

10. I fell in love just a little more when this little one turned 3.

  1. Fantastic blog! Do you have any hints for aspiring writers? I'm planning to start my own website soon but I'm a little lost on everything. Would you propose starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I'm totally overwhelmed .. Any recommendations? Kudos! netflix login
