Chef David Hawksworth, Nightingale, Vancouver

Only opened for a couple weeks, we decided to go on a whim. People slowly started to trickle in after we sat down at 11am. The 7400 square foot restaurant has 2 levels with an open concept kitchen upstairs. We love the vibe upstairs. We can hear the sounds of chefs cooking and the aroma…

Napa Valley, California

The flowers of Napa Valley. I got a little obsessed after the first shot. I didn’t post everything… We ate at so many restaurants in Napa but since it is not from this year and the menu has changed, I won’t post all the photos. I will just post the Morimoto omakase since Japanese food…

The Golden Triangle

The intersection of Myanmar, Laos, and Thailand. It is where the Mekong and Ruak rivers converge. I remember hiring a car from Chiang Rai to get here. It must have been around 2 hours by car. If you google it now, it says an hour but I remember it being much longer. It was a…
