Sweet and Sour Chicken by Air Fryer

Who doesn’t love sweet and sour dishes? Growing up, sweet and sour pork used to be my absolute favourite dish. If I was asked by grandma what I wanted to have for dinner, I would always answer ‘ku lou yoke’. Even to this day, I still have a soft spot for sweet and sour dishes…

Walk First, Eat Later

During our trip to Blue Mountains, we spent some time outdoors on one morning when the fog started to clear up. From Fairmont Resort to the lookout point at Echo Point, it was about 10 minutes of cab ride. We were glad that we decided to take the cab instead of walking the 6.6km that…

Escape to the Mountains

Last week, Saucer and I had the chance to go for a little escape to the Blue Mountains for the weekend. We were there with several of his colleagues, and we stayed at the Fairmont Resort in Leura. Arriving there on a Friday afternoon, we were greeted with a blanket of white fog surrounding the…
