How cute!!

I am a Canon user, but I’m open to new products especially if they’re colorful, cute and convenient.
This small Sony J Series Cybershot camera fits inside your purse, yet packs in 16.1 megapixels of image resolution.
What’s more, it comes built-in with a USB plug, so you don’t ever have to look for cords or memory card adapters to upload your photos into your computer.

It doesn’t hurt that it comes in all these gorgeous colors, versus the generic black cameras that are hard to find in the dark recesses of your handbag.

DSC-J10+%281%29

For the next few hours only, Groupon is offering a 25% discount on its SRP.
I’ve checked online. This model isn’t available on Amazon and the price is good considering Song Cybershot cameras of this kind cost more than US$300 online. Click here to buy:

Craftsteak

I wanted to make Jeroen happy, so I spent the night Googling where to get good steak in Hong Kong.
According to CNN, the place to go is Bistecca. I tried to reserve online, but no dice. They did suggest we go to their sister company Craftsteak instead.
We took a cab to Soho and got dropped off in the middle of somewhere, had to search for 29 Elgin Street on foot and found it in one of the uphill side streets.

I started off with this really nice oven-baked bread—Ana would LOVE this.
OMG heaven! Jeroen had to stop me from finishing it because we ordered a really big steak.

Jeroen had the grilled Caesar salad, which was a bit heavy. He loved the Canadian bacon pieces inside.

The whole point of this blog entry is the grilled bread crumb-crusted bone marrow served with bread and salad. It was so sinful. I really wished my dad were there. It’s really great with salt from the mill and a squeeze of lemon juice.
The top looks burnt due to the bread crumb crust

But inside, oh my God, these are what dreams are made of

IMG_3739

The bones are big and deep. I finished one and wished I could share the second.
But I couldn’t leave it like that, so I finished it. I am now thinking of it. I wish I could go back again.

Then came our 35-oz. (almost a kilo!) Canadian bone-in ribeye served on a cast-iron tray with your choice of sauce (we chose peppercorn and herb butter). This was also sprinkled with bread crumbs, giving it a nice gritty texture.

IMG_3743

OMG this is torture. As a Filipino, I really like to eat steak with rice, but this place doesn’t serve rice, so I couldn’t eat as much.
Our compliments to the chef who is a tourist attraction in his own. Para siyang reality show.

Pagoda

HONG KONG—Didn’t do a lot today due to deadlines, plus it was raining cats and dogs.
Jeroen and I took a cab to Hollywood Road to buy some wall lights at Innermost.

Jer wanted to have coffee, so we walked towards Gough street.
I saw scary coffins, some (I think) were designed to stand up.

Afraid.

Jeroen entered this place called Sidewalk

I don’t care what skinny bitch thinks: I bought Coke in aluminum bottles

Cause they’re cute

These were cute, but I don’t use an iPod

Walked back to the hotel and saw these construction sites with tree preservation.
Buti naman.
