Trip to Hokkaido – JAL and Hotel Gracery Sapporo
Hello my readers!! Sorry I haven’t posted in such a long time. I have an incurable disease called “Tamaditis” (extreme laziness). I have such a long backlog of trips and restaurants I decided to start with my latest trip to Hokkaido and hopefully work backwards.

Nobu Hong Kong

Matcha Heaven at Via Tokyo
Whenever I go to Hong Kong I stay in Kowloon side. It’s been that way since I was a child and I never had any desire to cross the tunnel to stay in Hong Kong side until I visited matcha heaven. Now I want to stay near Via Tokyo.
Matcha, Matcha, Matcha!!!
You know I’m obsessed with matcha right? Well, last December I went crazy in Hong Kong and bought everything green that I saw. There were a few finds and some duds.
