Moving forward…

We hope to really bring this site back to life. Our friends have asked us what has happened… and simply put, we were too busy as said in the previous post. We love to hear some suggestions for restaurants to check out, as well as any museums or parks!

Hopefully, we’ll find time to post every so often!

We got a makeover!

You can stop worrying.

Victor and I are still together, but busier than ever.  Real life caught up to us and pushed this blog on the backburner.  Now that we are getting in more of a routine, we can return again! We hope that you like our new look.  We both have matured over the period while we were radio silent and thought our site should mature with us as well.

Here’s to more eating adventures…and possibly other things…from us to you!

Love,
pinctor

Also, thank you David Yan for taking our header image photo!

Merry Christmas!

DSCN8573Season’s greetings! Here is a photo of us from last year when we were still in school. Seems like ages ago. We wish you all a lovely holiday, a glorious new year, and more importantly…to have delicious foods to eat.

We hope you celebrate the real reason of Christmas too…Jesus! =p
Keep warm everyone.

Love,
Vic & Pinky (Pinctor)

To be honest, we haven’t got the chance to visit many places this month because we had many family events to attend.  Therefore, we would just like to share some of our photos from Pinky’s family’s Thanksgiving food spread.  Don’t worry, Victor was also there!

DSCN7066It’s true that this will be the rare post where you see so much featured seafood…This was definitely the one Thanksgiving where Victor and I did not eat that much.  Also, what wasn’t photographed was the steak that we quickly ate, since it was so delicious.  I have grown up to eat steak with bearnaise sauce.  For those of you who are not familiar it is a yellowish sauce that is made out of butter, egg yolks, white wine vinegar, and herbs.  I absolutely adore eggs, so it was no surprise that I literally want to drink (eew) it.

The dragonfruit prosciutto was strange for me, Victor liked it more than I did.  I thought the fruit was too mushy and I didn’t enjoy the sweet and salty.  BlEGH.

I actually LOVE the cuttlefish pasta (over regular pasta), but this time I couldn’t eat much of it because there was clam sauce over it.  Before we would just have the cuttlefish pasta over some nice juicy steaks…I guess my dad didn’t care that I was allergic! haha =).

Thanksgiving is never about the food (right?), but about the family and conversations you have over the dinner table.   I would say that I am grateful to have family and friends around me, food in my stomach, as well as a roof over my head everyday.

So this year, I had the pleasure of visiting Pinky’s family this year for Thanksgiving. There was so many types of food and I felt like I was at a restaurant. There was lot I didn’t eat… because it was seafood. I thought the Dragon fruit wrapped with Prosciutto rather interesting. Its salty yet sweet. It’s hard to describe dragon fruit I guess. It’s texture is like a kiwi, but it’s not as sweet. The fruit itself is actually quite beautiful.

I also got try some lamb chops. I don’t really eat lamb too often, so it was sort of a new experience for me. I felt like it had a metallic taste to it. It was interesting, it didn’t really taste like the other red meats I’ve had before.  It looked like a steak… but not really… so I guess it just confused my taste buds. Lastly, I got to eat a REAL steak. Pinky’s family bought like 20+ steaks. I’ve never seen that much steak all at once. It was cooked to medium and it was absolutely delicious. There’s nothing better than a home-cooked meal.  If you readers didn’t know, steaks are my favorite!

Yet again, Thanksgiving isn’t just about the food. It should be more about spending time with family and friends as well as being grateful for what you have.

WE also thank all of our readers and followers on this blog!  Thank you for being loyal to us and thank you for reading our random food thoughts.  We hope your Thanksgiving was great and wish you even better experiences during the holidays season!

We haven’t been posting due to some late-semester craziness. Pinky and I will be graduating hopefully this summer, so we really need to buckle down and finish strong. We intend on continuing our food blog as soon as we have the time for it!

Thanks for reading and the support! 🙂
