Never work before breakfast; if you have to work before breakfast, eat your breakfast first." Josh Billings (Henry Wheeler Shaw) (1818-1885)

A friend took me to the Gunshot Cafe one lazy sunny morning. With a delightful pancake covered with berries and pistachio happily tucked in to my tummy, I've experienced the best breakfast place (so he claims) in Brisbane.

Strength is the capacity to break a chocolate bar into four pieces with your bare hands -- and then eat just one of the pieces

I was pleasantly surprised by this stick of chocolate covered strawberry from Tian, bought from a street hawker sidestore at Chinatown, Singapore.

Catching up over a cappuccino and chocolate caramel brownie with a new friend at Coffee Club, Gold Coast. It was overwhelmingly sweet, I couldn't finish it XP

Farewell feast of signature Singaporean chilli crab dish with family friends at Hawker Center Bukit Batok, Singapore. Forget the fancy restaurant environment surrounding, 11 favor bursting seafood dishes later, it was one of the most memorable, gastranomical experience in my life.

I still remember this welcoming piece of artwork. The taste is every bit as delicious as it looks. Can’t remember the name of the café, but it’s near the Esplanade, Singapore.

Randomly chosen from a Vietnamese cafe menu (because there was no English translation), some taste delicious, and some well, surprising. The total bill was under 3 AUD I think…In Hanoi, Vietnam
