I am in love with sushi. I could eat it for every single meal, including breakfast (yes, I’ve had sushi at 11am on a Thursday morning). However, finding sushi with no alcohol is a chore and finding sushi with no alcohol that is good is even harder. So when I came across Mitsuryu in Chinatown, […]
Without knowing it, BW and I have always been connected one way or another throughout our lives. From being at the same wedding functions to even living around the corner from one another, we never knew each other existed until the day we were introduced. Which brings me to Peking Garden, our local Chinese restaurant […]
As I sit here writing this post, it has dawned on me that I am 40 weeks and 1 day pregnant, and there is no sign of this child showing up anytime soon. Sure, I could have been a little more active during this pregnancy; exercise, swimming, walking, yoga, the works but no, I chose […]
Having lived in Central London for the last four years, I have decided I never want to leave. I love it here way too much and when the time comes to settle down in the suburbs, BW will have to pry me away from my beloved place. Everything is so readily available, convenient, and close […]
Last November, I was invited out to Ningxia in Northern China. I can see you guys rolling your eyes thinking, “we know, you haven’t stopped reminding us!”, but it was truly one of the best trips of my life. Asides from being mesmerised by the landmarks and the ways of the Hui Muslims out there, […]
Sambal Shiok Laksa Bar
As it is my last week of pregnancy, I’ve been trying to see as many friends as possible as well as eating out almost daily! I refuse to let the swelling and constant waddling get the best of me! There has been a restaurant on my pregnancy radar since I heard of it’s opening, and […]

I’ve never really been a fan of the Lebanese cuisine, but I’ll be the first to admit that my knowledge of Lebanese food hasn’t stretched much further than the cafes on Edgware Road and perhaps, really good manaeesh from Z&Z bakery. Don’t get me wrong, I could kill a shawarma at any of these establishments […]
HGAT Guide to Phuket
GETTING THERE Aware of what happened on our last domestic flight, we packed lightly and headed to CNX airport. Thankfully, there were no issues and we were infact able to pack a whole 5kg more! We left CNX at 9am and arrived in Phuket International Airport (HKT) two hours later via Thai Smile airlines.
Since I was a young’un, I’ve always been a little slow when it came to learning languages. Mum would try her hardest to teach me the gujarati basics whilst my Dhadi would write letters in gujarati to me, both sadly to no avail, and now that I’m older, I’ve realised how important it is to preserve […]
Over the last few years of HGAT, one of the most popular questions asides from “are you fat?” (I’ll leave that to you to decide) and “what does BW stand for?” (I’ll only reveal that once someone has guessed it correctly) is “what are you?”.
