Enjoying the summer sun!

Had a great weekend, it’s 30 degrees! Unusual for Belgium summer, we are more used to the 20 or 25 degree summer days. I felt immediately European, meaning I had to drag myself outside to enjoy the precious sun, because next week is gonna be rainy again lol.

Summery terrace

Had some localised noodle soup, which wasn’t as good as in Asia.

Still missing Vietnamese iced coffee.


At least weather is nice, ice cream is good, people all seem happy, I think I got nothing to complain.

Last meal of my Asia trip – 大董 Roasted Duck in Beijing

Asia trip is over, I got to meet so many new and old friends this time, even on my last transit day in Beijing, I met someone I hadn’t seen for ages and we went to eat Beijing Roasted Duck before I leave.

This restaurant is known for its roasted duck but we liked their other dishes as well.

dates and ribs

Roasted duck

pea sprouts, my favorite vegetable ^^

Squirrel-shaped fish is a typical Suzhou dish.


Coconut rice balls

Apparently they sell all kinds of dishes from all over the country

Cute restaurant with great lightening and a fish pond

It is always great to catch up with old friends, even though it’s never enough time to share every update in life. Still, good to meet up.

So nice to be back in Hanoi, missed those colorful children sized chairs!

I’m back in Hanoi now, meaning it’s the last stop of my Asia trip, as my flight back to Europe is from Hanoi.

Yea, such chairs. In Vietnam if you look for food, just look for such chairs on the street!

<3 Hanoi old quater! Still among my favorite cities. Have a good friend back home joining me in Hanoi before going back to Belgium. Strange friend though, didn’t come meet me when I was in China but showed up in Hanoi in the end lol.

Happy to be back here again.

Ice dessert in Taiwan

In Taiwan you find shaved ice shops everywhere. For someone with lactoce intolerance, this is perfect dessert for a warm day.

You can add all kinds of toppings, red bean, green bean (I know for some people, dessert with beans sound weird but I love it), fruit, taro ball, pudding, etc.
