  • 🇨🇳 Sheng Jian Bao 生煎包, aka pan-fried pork soup dumplings, from Yang's dumplings in Shanghai. Sheng Jian Bao is a unique specialty of Shanghai and you must must NOT miss it when you are here. While not as well known as xiao long bao, they are actually quite similar and just as tasty! The difference here is that the skin of Sheng Jian Bao is thicker and doughy, unlike xlb which usually prizes itself in the thinness of its skin. I find them also more filling because of this. Also, they are pan-fried and slightly crispy on the bottom instead of steamed. But, like xlb, you must be careful while taking the first bite - the soup inside can be be very very hot.

This is right across the street from a famous xlb shop called Jia Jia Tang Bao which I visited multiple times during my short visit. I pretty much had dumplings overload when I was in Shanghai - I ate dumplings every meal! 😍 I wrote about the details of what I ate in the city in my blog, so you guys can experience it too. You can find the link in my profile above! ⬆️

  • 🇨🇳 Happy New Year everyone! This is Harbin ice cream while walking down Nanjing road in Shanghai. I spotted this ice cream from a street vendor and just had to try it. I ended up liking it so much I got another one the next day. The taste is very creamy and milky with bits of raisins inside. I think i detected a bit of rum(?) too!

Nanjing road is a very busy shopping street in the heart of Shanghai. It always seems to be jam-packed with pedestrians from People's Square all the way to The Bund by the Huangpu river, especially during New Years!

  • Good day, Shanghai 🇨🇳 Bingtang hu lu while strolling around The Bund. Bing tang hu lu is a candied fruit snack on skewers that is very popular in China. I love it - the taste is a wonderful mix of sweet and a tinge of sour, and the texture is a contrast of crunchy on the outside from the hard candy coating and soft in the inside from the fruit itself. I can never finish the entire skewer by myself though! 😵

It's a bit cloudy in the picture but since then the weather in Shanghai has just been absolutely perfect! It's a bit cold for me because I get cold very easily, but I can't really complain with 15C, clear blue skies and sunshine.

I hope you are enjoying the last day of 2016 :) i sure will be! Happy New Year everybody!

  • With only 4 more days left in 2016, I took some time to look back on this past year and reviewed my travel highlights. You can read the post on my blog by clicking the link in my profile ⬆️ above!

Thank you to all of you for being a part of this little food journal of mine. At times I still can't believe what started out as a personal project ended up being shared with 350,000+ people around the world! So from the bottom of my heart, thank you.

As for <a href=/user/girleatworld>@girleatworld</a> in 2016... well, you guys have spoken and it's clear that the  <a  href=/tag/2016bestnine>#2016bestnine</a> moments were dominated by all the cute eats from my favorite country, Japan! 🇯🇵 The trip really was one of the best memories in my life, especially meeting up with my best friend <a href=/user/op.118>@op.118</a> after all these years.

I'm off to Shanghai this week as a final trip to wrap up 2016. See you guys there - and please let me know if you have any recommendations! As usual, the more local - the better. It's my first time in Shanghai and I expect to eat a lot of dumplings 😋

  • Merry Christmas / boxing day everyone! I've been spending time with my family in Indonesia. 🇮🇩 We visited Malang in East Java, and ate our way around town. Then went to the volcanic mountain Bromo this morning for sunrise. Of course I can't resist a bowl of Bakso when i see one.

Bakso is meatball noodle dish that is very popular and can be found throughout Indonesia. This one specifically is Bakso Malang, which includes deep fried crispy wontons and tofu instead of just meatballs and yellow noodles! Just add chili and kecap and I'm in heaven.

This bowl only cost $1 but the portion is quite small, so of course I had seconds.

Thanks to my siblings <a href=/user/chibiepi>@chibiepi</a> and <a href=/user/roryhie>@roryhie</a> for lending me their hands while I took pics 😛

  • 🇯🇴 Honestly, I don't know how this keeps happening to me. While scrolling down my photo archives I found a picture I totally forgot to post from Jordan back in May. It made me feel all nostalgic and really miss the country all over again! For old memories sake, you can read about my culinary journey in Jordan at the link in my profile above.

This one is just a plain bread at a beautiful souk (market) in the ancient city As-Salt, Jordan. It may look dull and uninsteresting but it was during my trip to Jordan that I realized how important bread is to the middle eastern culture.

A memorable quote I heard from a Jordanian friend while talking about a hardship story was something along the lines of She was so poor, she had no money to buy bread. It has been over half a year but this exchange still stuck to my memory. I thought it was interesting how she specifically used the word bread to refer to food in general, showing how much of a staple it is to her daily life.

I suppose it's like how rice would be to asians - i, for one, can't imagine living without eating rice.

I was told with this type of thin round bread, they would just eat it with bare hands and meat folded inside. So it's like middle eastern taco, I observed. Yes, like middle eastern taco, my friend replied, with a hearty laugh, as i chomped on the bread.

  • 🇺🇸🍔 A Burger at Times Square, NYC by <a href=/user/worldwanderlust>@worldwanderlust.</a>

Happy Election day to all my American friends! I hope you have all gone out and exercised your right to vote.

Today is an important day for everyone, even those of us who are not American citizens. I for one will be watching the result closely from Singapore 👀

 <a  href=/tag/electionday2016>#electionday2016</a>

Other updates from me: November has been a quiet month travel-wise, but I have a few trips lined up for December! I am going to Thailand for some diving (yes, again), Jakarta, and Shanghai! Let me know if you have food recommendations for Shanghai 😬

  • 🇯🇵🇸🇬 Last day to enter the Win a Trip to Japan contest by <a href=/user/cheapticketssg>@cheapticketssg</a>! Open to Singapore resident only. See the link on my profile.

Hashima Island, also known as Gunkanjima 軍艦島 or Battleship Island, an abandoned island 15km off the coast of Nagasaki. Gunkanjima used to be a coal mining facility owned by Mitsubishi back in the days of rapid industrialization of Japan from 1810 - 1974. At it's peak, 5,200+ people lived densely packed on this island.

The mine was closed down in 1974 when coal was no longer in demand, leaving the apartment buildings void of life yet still intact on the island.

It was granted UNESCO World Heritage site in July 2015.

Biwa ice cream in Nagasaki. Biwa is Loquat / Japanese plum. The plant originated from China, but was introduced to Japan through trades in Nagasaki and became naturalized in Japan. It is common to find them as ice cream flavors in Nagasaki!

  • 🇯🇵🇸🇬 One more week until the Win a Trip to Japan contest by <a href=/user/cheapticketssg>@cheapticketssg</a> closes! Click on the link in my profile. Open to Singapore resident only.

This is Castella in Dejima island in Nagasaki. It might look like a regular cake, but it's a specialty of Nagasaki and a must try when you are in the city!

Castella is a Japanese Sponge cake brought into Japan by Portuguese traders in the 16th century. At that time, Nagasaki port was the only place in Japan that was open for foreign trading, specifically on Dejima island. Sugar was an expensive item back then and Castella became a luxury dessert to have. Nowadays, the cake is a specialty of Nagasaki.

Banh mi is a vietnamese-style sandwich filled with pork sausage, pork liver pâté and vegetables like cucumbers and pickled carrots. The bread is French baguette which was introduced by the French during the colonial period.

This one is from Banh Mi Huyn Hoa in District 1. I loved the sandwich here but becareful of the hidden green chili! They really pack a punch 😖

  • 🇯🇵🍦🌹 Chirinchirin sorbet at Nagasaki from my trip with <a href=/user/cheapticketssg>@cheapticketssg</a> !

Chirinchirin is a popular treat in Nagasaki that has been around for 50 years. Sold by vendors (usually manned by elderly ladies) at tourist places, this sorbet is famous for the way it is served - shaped like a rose. The rose shape is achieved by scooping the sorbet little by little and placing each scoop to mimic rose petals.

The name chirinchirin comes from onomatopoeia of the sound that a bell makes, as each vendor would have a bell that they ring whenever they are around.

This is a Kumamon-shaped red bean snack I had in Kumamoto. Kumamon is a bear 🐻 and the mascot of Kumamoto prefecture. You can see tons of him in as soon as you get to Kumamoto!

We rented a car and drove up route 339 to a lookout point called Daikanbo, which gives you and impressive view of Mount Aso and the valley beneath it. Kumamoto is so beautiful! It was the highlight of my trip to Japan this time :)

  • 🇸🇬 Beautiful Mooncake at Singapore Chinatown! It was Mid-Autumn festival two weeks ago and it is customary to have mooncakes then. This mooncake was from a local confectionery store in Chinatown called Chop Tai Chong Kok, which has been in business since 1938. They are known for their fresh hand made mooncakes with no preservatives added!

This was shot for Morning Express news on Ch 8 in Singapore today. Big thank you to the crew for reaching out and doing an interview with me!

You can see the segment here on youtube, where i shared my tips on taking pictures and editing, all using just my iphone: <a target=_blank href=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sV-cgQOvBd0>https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sV-cgQOvBd0</a> or click on the link in my profile above! 👆

  • 🏯 As part of my trip with <a href=/user/cheapticketssg>@cheapticketssg</a>, I got to visit Kumamoto! Use promo code JAPAN2016 for $30 off when you book a flight from Singapore to Japan. Follow <a href=/user/cheapticketssg>@cheapticketssg</a> for more Japan promo coming up this week!

This is Ikinari Dango, a Kumamoto dumpling snack filled with red bean paste and sweet potato. Ikinari is Kumamoto slang for sudden so the literal translation of this snack is sudden dumpling or instant dumpling since the dumpling can be very easily prepared.

Kumamoto castle is beautiful and majestic. Unfortunately, the city of Kumamoto was hit with two strong earthquakes earlier this year in April 2016. As of now, you can't enter the castle but you can still observe it from a close distance.

If you look closely in person, you can see parts of the roof tiles of the castle were affected by the earthquake. However, these roof tiles were actually specifically designed to fall off in the event of such earthquake, so that it does not collapse into the castle interior and cause even more damage. Amazing!

Onigiri at Nagasaki 🍙 This is my daily snack whenever i am in Japan! I can seriously eat them all day... 🙈 They are rice ball snack with different ingredients and readily available at any konbini (convenience stores) all over Japan. My favorite is the salmon and sesame one.

Who else love Onigiri? Which one is your favorite?

  • 🍁 Hello from Hiroshima! Yes I am in Japan again thanks to <a href=/user/cheapticketssg>@cheapticketssg</a>! I will be traveling and eating my way around the Kyushu region of Japan, starting from Hiroshima, Fukuoka, Nagasaki and Kagoshima. Stay tuned for flights giveaway and discounts for flights to Japan! I am also doing a takeover of <a href=/user/cheapticketssg>@cheapticketssg</a>, where I will be posting more delicious food I will be eating in Japan, so follow me there.

This is a Momiji Manju, a popular steamed bun snack shaped like Japanese maple leaf that can be found throughout Hiroshima. 🍁 It is filled with red bean jam.

Hiroshima city may look unassuming, but I'm sure the majority of us are very familiar with the rich history of this city. Hiroshima is the first city in history that suffered the effect of an atomic bomb which effectively ended World War II, on August 6, 1945 at 8:15 am. Visiting the Memorial museum and ground zero of the atomic bomb dropping point was quite heart breaking.

  • A cup of Kopi Luwak overlooking Bali's Rice Paddy fields 🌾🇲🇨 Thank you <a href=/user/franciak>@franciak</a> for lending me your hand 💋

Kopi Luwak is a type of coffee made from partly digested and defecated coffee beans from Asian Palm Civet. It has been referred to as the most expensive coffee in the world, fetching $30 a cup in NYC. Because of its price tag and popularity, while kopi luwak used to be wildly sourced by actually collecting Civet feces from the wild, nowadays it involves farming methods that can be inhumane to the Civets. It's quite difficult to find one that is still wildly sourced. Keep this in mind and decide for yourself if you'd like to try this coffee.

🇨🇳 Sheng Jian Bao 生煎包, aka pan-fried pork soup dumplings, from Yang's dumplings in Shanghai. Sheng Jian Bao is a unique specialty of Shanghai and you must must NOT miss it when you are here. While not as well known as xiao long bao, they are actually quite similar and just as tasty! The difference here is that the skin of Sheng Jian Bao is thicker and doughy, unlike xlb which usually prizes itself in the thinness of its skin. I find them also more filling because of this. Also, they are pan-fried and slightly crispy on the bottom instead of steamed. But, like xlb, you must be careful while taking the first bite - the soup inside can be be very very hot. This is right across the street from a famous xlb shop called Jia Jia Tang Bao which I visited multiple times during my short visit. I pretty much had dumplings overload when I was in Shanghai - I ate dumplings every meal! 😍 I wrote about the details of what I ate in the city in my blog, so you guys can experience it too. You can find the link in my profile above! ⬆️
