San Francisco by Cable Car

I was fortunate to visit San Francisco for work in mid December. Right after checking in to the hotel, I dropped off my luggage, grabbed my camera and hopped on the cable car to Fisherman’s Wharf. I know, I know, classic tourist move but I couldn’t help but want to visit. The cable car system threw me […]

I am a huge fan of the Food Network and its cult classics Iron Chef America, The Next Iron Chef, Masterchef and of course, the irascible Gordon Ramsay and his explosive Hell’s Kitchen. A recent discovery though, was an old 5-part miniseries from 1999 that chronicles Chef Ramsay’s early years. Boiling Point follows him through his […]

Hi Sher! I’ve come across your blog from the lovely Joyce (C&C) and your photography is really beautiful.

I’m super jealous of all your travel posts hehe, I like your London posts as that’s where I live but also Thailand as that is one of my favourite holiday destinations I’ve been to recently :)

SherNovember 12, 2014 - 1:28 pm

Hey Hanh, thanks for stopping by! Ooh I’m jealous you’re in London!! It’s such a great city. Ha and funny enough, Thailand had tons of brits there on holiday. I can see why now, it’s such a great retreat!

Le Potager du Pere Thierry

  Le Potage du Pere Thierry   On our first night in Paris, we ventured out to a wine bar + restaurant well known among the expat crowd, but which ultimately ended up a major disappointment. We’re talking nearly a 2 hour wait while later parties were seated ahead of us, rude waiters and menu mains […]

Musée Jacquemart André

  Jacquemart Andre Museum   I had a really fun time exploring the mansion that is the Jacquemart Andre museum. Check out the floor to ceiling mirrors and all that marble! I stumbled on the idea to visit the Jacquemart Andre museum by chance, having never heard of the place before this latest trip to […]


GreyMarch 28, 2014 - 4:18 pm

Whoa, all that marble! And that mirror is so beautiful! I’m intrigued by that marble staircase. How did they even make that? Carve it? However they created it, it sure is lovely.

SherMarch 28, 2014 - 5:25 pm

I’m not sure, but it does look incredibly beautiful and must have cost a fortune, even back in the day! thanks for stopping by Grey :)

Paris Desserts: Sadaharu Aoki and Pierre Herme macarons

  The Best Macarons in Paris   Mhm macarons! Before we even flew to Paris, I made a list of all the dessert shops I wanted to visit. Sadaharu Aoki, check. Pierre Herme, check. The fact that both were within relatively close proximity? Walking dessert tour time!!       Sadaharu Aoki After an early […]


MelanieMarch 26, 2014 - 7:20 am

Omg I love the macaroons from Pierre Hermes! They have very interesting combo there!

I haven’t tried Sadaharu Aoki! It sounds delightful! Would love to try!

la domestiqueMarch 26, 2014 - 9:58 am

Oh this looks like heaven! I still treasure my macaron box from Laduree Paris.

KatherineMarch 26, 2014 - 10:37 am

Hi Sher! Thanks so much for your kind comment, what a fun coincidence! It looks like you tried out way more at Sadaharu than I did, I am jealous! I am taking notes for next time :)

SherMarch 26, 2014 - 1:17 pm

they do have the cutest packaging dont they? i always buy the box version even though it’s of course more expensive haha

SherMarch 26, 2014 - 1:17 pm

thanks for stopping by here as well! :)

SherMarch 26, 2014 - 1:18 pm

right? such ingenious creativity over at pierre herme. the flavors come across so strongly too, it’s delicious!

AlessiaMarch 27, 2014 - 11:59 am

Thanks for your comment on our webzine! I LOVE macaroons, I had them as dessert at my wedding last year and my husband and I went to france for our honeymoon and ate them often.. So they’re not only delicious but they have a sentimental value too! :D

SherMarch 27, 2014 - 12:31 pm

oh wow! that must have been so pretty, a tower of pastel macarons

LeeLeeMarch 28, 2014 - 3:19 am

It all looks so divine and of course delicious! I will have to check out Sadaharu Aoki the next time I’m in Paris.

SherMarch 28, 2014 - 5:21 pm

Your pictures of the macarons are so good that they make me want to reach into the picture and take a macaron ;)


SherApril 7, 2014 - 12:32 pm

aw thank you! i’m so glad you liked them

Steffy FogainNovember 18, 2014 - 12:48 am

I love Pierre Hermé! I always wonder why so many people rave about La Durée when the real MVP is Pierre! I will definitely stop by Sadaharu Aoki next time I’m in Paris. Great pics, I love the quality :)

SherNovember 18, 2014 - 9:09 am

Steffy – ahh I feel exactly the same way! I go to Laduree because it’s all we have in NYC but oooh Pierre Herme is just a whole ‘nother level of amazing!
