New year new stuff

Well, so this is officially my first proper post after the hiatus. It's strange writing again after so long because I don't quite know where to start, but I'll try. Okay new stuff that has happened:

1) Antelune

As some of you may have noticed, I have a new site: www.antelune.com! It's more of a place where I publish my creative endeavours - fiction, poetry, musings, visual art, music - because somehow it feels strange to post them up here between lifestyle and beauty posts. I'm not sure if I've mentioned this before, but my life-goal is sort of to be an artist doing mixed media stuff. So basically visual art + performance art. Apart from that, I can write, sing, and play music so hopefully something will come of it. To be honest, I'm not even sure where my abilities will take me, but I'm putting some faith into realising my dreams. Whatever it is I do, I aim to inspire wonder and help others somehow. Not sure how I'm going to do that right now, but I'm believing that it will come to pass.

The Curious Incident of the Fan in the Nighttime

I'm back, and I have so many things to say! First off, my blog isn't really dead - as you can see I've still kept my domain name. It's just been dormant, and I've been trying to get myself to update to no avail. Considering that I've been away for almost a year, I think you guys really need an explanation of what happened in between. It's not been an entirely smooth sailing year. Last April I started having anxiety problems and panic attacks. It just came out of the blue, even though I've been a slightly nervous person for much of my life, it took me by surprise. I spent a long time trying to figure out what was wrong and wondering if I should write about it. Decided not to until I found out the cause and the solution so that I wouldn't be making promises then dropping off the face of the earth again.

Hong Kong Eats: Dim Sum Bar Review and Pictures

I'm baaaack with lots of food pictures and foodie recommendations. I'm breaking up my posts so I won't spam you with pictures and texts; each Hong Kong Eats post will be a review on a particular place I've been to. I hope you enjoy reading them as much as I have had writing them (and eating all the food).

My first encounter with dim sum in HK happened at Dim Sum Bar. I went to the one located at Gateway Arcade of Harbour City, which is near the Tsim Sha Tsui MTR station. Technically, my uncle drove me there and Lester and I had a nice "family reunion" lunch with his family. If you want to get there, you'll have to enter from the outside, so it can get a tad confusing if you're not familiar with the place.

No. 1 on my list (and collage) to try is the Char Siew Bao 叉烧包 (BBQ pork-filled bun). They do it with a modern twist like Tim Ho Wan; instead of having the bun skin all soft, white and tasteless, this bun is crispy on the outside and a little sweet. I really love how the crispy texture of the outside complements the BBQ pork filling, which is salty and flavourful. Can't ever get sick of this dish!
