好一段時間沒有寫過烘焙有關的分享。還記得 2018 年尾臺灣之旅我拜訪了三間神級的烘焙店，之後也寫過兩篇朝聖之旅的文章，隨後因忙於攪自己的食店，第三篇被擱置一旁，今天就讓我為這個朝聖之旅系列來個終結吧！
先前到過或寫過的臺灣咖啡店都在臺北，今天來分享另一間位於高雄，自己頗喜歡的特色咖啡店 – 灰咖啡。
臺灣單車環島這個念頭是在 2014 年中開始在心𥚃湧現，亦是我愛上公路車之後的一個夢想。
If you have read my previous post on my status update and flash visit to Taipei, you might notice a box of coffee was lying on the low left corner of the feature image.
This is one of the two Specialty Coffee products available under the Taiwan 7-11 City Cafe Premium sub-brand.
It’s been quite a long time since I published my last blog post, 318 days to be exact. 2019 has been a busy and wonderful year to me where I have the chance to explore and learn so many things that I have never dreamt before. I am […]
In our past holiday travels, I would usually prepare detailed itinerary for the trip. However, as my boy is getting older, he has his own expectation on the travel and the places for our visit may change from time to time. As such, nowadays, I only planned for the flights and accommodations, the rest of the trip will only be worked out during the trip.
In my recent Taipei/Kaohsiung trip, we had made a flash travel to Tainan.
If you still remembered that my classmate had got me two baking books while I was staying in the hospital, one of them is the “火頭工”, of which I had a review on it. The other one is the “野上智寛的麵包全圖解”, a book focusing on the recipe and baking techniques for breads sold in his bakery – Boulangerie Nogami. Despite I have not completed reading it, I was still eager to visit Boulangerie Nogami while I was in Taipei in last December.
You may be surprised that I have not ridden any YouBike before despite that I have been to Taipei a number of times. The main reason is that I don’t have Easycard nor local phone number. For security reason, I also don’t want to use my credit card for one-time bike rental as well.
Can’t remember how long I have not watched a movie in the theatre. Yesterday, I went with my friends to Vieshow Cinemas Taipei Xinyi to watch Bohemian Rhapsody, a documentary on the rock band Queen and the lead singer Freddie Mercury.
Kaohsiung, the third biggest city of Taiwan, is not only famous for its port, night markets, food, prettiest metro stations and enormous public artwork, but also the emerging scene of fine dining.
During our bike ride in Kaohsiung in late March, we had a chance to be the guests of our closed friends, at one of the great restaurants, the LA ONE Kitchen & Bakery.
During my stay in Kaohsiung, the Rapid Transit System (RTS) or “高雄都會區大眾捷運系統” is the major means of transportation in the Metro area.
Despite the history of the Kaohsiung Metro train services is relatively short, there are some interesting facts that I can share with you.
For our holiday rides in Kaohsiung, we have not bought along our road bikes. Instead, I have made and advanced booking with local Giant bike shop in Kaohsiung via their Facebook Fans page.
Revitalisation of historical buildings as a means of preserving cultural and historical heritage is getting more significant nowadays. By injecting new usages to these buildings, it is expected that its life activities can be sustained.
Our second ride in Kaohsiung has been focused on one of the highly recognised revitalisation projects, the Pier 2 Art Center. We have also boarded the ferry at GuShan to the Cijin District (旗津半島）and have a wonderful sprint along the Cijin Cycling Promenade (旗津踩風大道).
When two people are in love, we will say “they are 沐浴愛河中” in Chinese (ie. bathing in the love river). However, one of the sweet ladies of my cycling team has her own interpretation:
Meaning that “Love River” is not only just for falling in love, but also a wonderful place to enjoy riding with good friends.
