Closing the lid of my laptop, sitting cross legged in bed, a cup of tea to hand and flicking through a magazine on a day off or a weekend, is my idea of switching off for a little while. I’ve been meaning to buy Cereal magazine for the longest time and finally got myself a copy. Along with the likes of Kinfolk, it isn’t your usual glossy magazine. The pages of stunning travel and food photography and beautiful anecdotes give me serious wanderlust. Along with subjects like Art and Fashion – it really is the dreamiest magazine. Cereal is printed on the loveliest matt paper stock too, it sounds really nerdy but the paper is really satisfyingly weighty – so good! It just so happens that the latest volume of Cereal includes a little feature on Hong Kong and some of my favourite things – dim sum and HK’s star ferry.
“Of course, dim sum isn’t dim sum without the tea that goes with it. Indeed the way to say that you are eating dim sum in Cantonese is, confusingly, to announce you are ‘drinking tea’ – yum cha”
Cereal Magazine Vol. 8, ‘Dim Sum’ Charlie Lee-Potter
In other news, I’ve had a lovely weekend with a quick trip to London to see some friends. Naturally, this revolved around food and I booked us into the newly opened Korean restaurant JinJuu which is the brainchild of Korean-American chef, Judy Joo and I’m already hoping to go back at some point. So the next instalment of Winnie Eats will be coming very, very soon. I can’t wait to share the pics with you guys!
