I think I’ll start to rewind all the times hat I had in Korea especially in Seoul to keep my self remember the stories that created from living abroad there.

I always like Mexican food. In Seoul, plenty of good Mexican restaurants especially in Itaewon area. The first time I tasted Mexican food was in Korea and started to like them. Having the real Mexican food in Mexican restaurant in America gave me another better experience. These are some pictures from my last visit to Mexican food (Tomatillo Itaewon). Too bad it was still cold, otherwise horchata would make it perfect. Had a visit of this place with a friend who is currently living in UK to find his passion of life (right? :P). It was closed with a cafe visit (of course).



Last coffee in Korea 

It’s been a month since I left Seoul. Time to review some of things that I like from there. 

There are few of coffee times that I (went) for the last days before leaving Korea.

My first french toast

 So this is the first time I made french toast. I never thought that would be so easy and simple.

I’m glad with the result, taste good, looks lovely just like when you buy in brunch cafe for insane price (at least for me).

Here is the recipe (works for my reminder), and the amount is up to you:

Milk bread (not too thin slices)





Mix the milk+egg+cinnamon. Batter the bread with the mixture for few minutes. Heat the pan and melt the butter. Fry the battered bread just like a toast.

Enjoy the toast with anything you like. Here I used icing sugar for the sprinkle (most of people use maple syrup), ate it with smoked salmon and scramble egg.

Sure to make it again.


Because I also shoot film


I got a Minolta X-700 from a lovely friend. This camera belonged to her late father. Bought a 50 mm f1.7 lens on ebay, and started to shoot anywhere :). Mixed feeling came out.

Thanks Martha!

Night baking: Banana pound cake

So, I am spending this whole week only with this little girl since my husband is in a trip to Boston for a conference. It wasn’t so easy to do all the things by myself. Tons of works and cold are running these days. I couldn’t sleep late to do other things because of the cold is messing me around. Still to do the best for everything.

Baking is one of my favorite things to do at home. To stretch out my mind, I decided to bake something. I found ripe bananas that sold in very cheap price. Should be perfect to make banana cake. No special recipe, just try to mix all. Super easy, resulted in moist and rich banana taste.

I think I need to put the detail here for myself 😀

125 g of butter (melted)

3/4 cup of sugar

2 large eggs

3 ripe bananas (crushed)

1,5 cup of all purpose flour

1 tsp of baking powder

1 tsp of baking soda

How it works:

  1. Add the sugar into melted butter and whisk well.
  2. Add the eggs one by one while stirring.
  3. Add the well crushed banana, and mix completely.
  4. Mix the flour, baking powder, and baking soda together (dry mixing)
  5. Add the dry mixture into the butter mixture.
  6. Pour into the cake pound tray that covered with bake paper.
  7. Bake for 40 mins in 170 deg Celcius.
  8. Add sugar that mixed with lemon zest for the icing for finishing.
  9. Enjoy!
