Although I have been to Tsukiji fish market many times, I have never been able to get up early enough to see the auctions or other market activities. However, I still enjoy strolling around and having omakase sushi breakfast whenever I visit. But when I heard that the 78-year old market is [...]

I have a love/hate relationship with Paris (like I do with London, New York and Hong Kong), perhaps it's like any human relationships, the less you know, the better. Now that I keep a fair distance from Paris, I am able to enjoy it more. Contrary to the advice from travel guidebooks [...]

Unlike most people, I am not a huge fan of pasta and I don't particularly like pasta with tomato-based sauces. My favourite pasta dish is linguine alle vongole, which is simple, easy and quick to cook but taste delicious.
