EXPLORING EDINBURGH

I visited Edinburgh for a short weekend ahead of a friend’s wedding where I stayed in a lovely little apartment in the heart of the city, ate some delicious food and took some photos. Find out more about what I got up to on the first day!

SUMMER VIBES

Hello I’m back! It’s been a whole month since I’ve blogged and I’ve had a crazy busy time with work but I’ve finally found a spare moment to pop some words on the blog.

THREE YEARS LATER

The first illustration I ever gifted was for my friends Rachael and Martin. Fast-forward three years and little Joni is the newest, most adorable addition to the family and ahead of her christening, it seemed fitting to get the watercolours out again.

BONEHEAD

Birmingham is pretty awesome when it comes to food these days and it’s high time I started blogging more about my local food scene. One of the newest additions to the city is Bonehead which specialises in fried chicken –  easily one of my favourite things in life.

CHING MING FESTIVAL, DIM SUM AND GOOD COMPANY

This long weekend has mostly involved friends, family and food. With trips to an exhibition, eating great Taiwanese food and then spending Sunday with family and paying respects to our ancestors for Ching Ming festival followed by dim sum.

HAYWARD GALLERY

Oh how I love Brutalist architecture and better yet, Brutalist architecture that is still very much in public use and the Southbank Centre is one of those. I visited the brilliant Andreas Gursky photography exhibition and of course, managed to take a few photos of the iconic building too.

MORE MISSOMA

I know it hasn’t been long since I posted about Missoma – but I only went and won some pieces from their #MyMissoma Instagram competition didn’t I?

SHARING THE LOVE

Last week’s response to my post was pretty amazing. I can’t wait to share more stories on the blog about growing up as a British born Chinese (BBC) in the UK but first, here are three things that I’ve been loving lately…

APPRECIATING DIFFERENCES

Food is an important part of Chinese culture and after watching Ugly Delicious on Netflix this weekend, I penned my thoughts on my relationship with Chinese food and learning to appreciate it.
