About Me  


I have started blogging since 2008 but after my son Marc came to the world in Summer 2010 and thereafter I have been blogging less and less on a regular basis. I didn’t want to totally give up blogging yet. However, it’s hard to keep it up. From 2008-2012, my cooking was reflected from how I miss the food from my hometown, Hong Kong. I used to eat-out frequently, from top-notch places to street foods, I like them all, whenever there are new hotspots, talk of the town, I would love to try.

Meanwhile ironically, loving so much eating, I am also obsessed with my appearance and hoping to stay slim. However, with my son just turned to three in July, I still could not shed all the extra pounds from my pregnancy. It’s not exceedingly bad that but I do not want to see my weight slowly creeping up and ignoring it. Some people say to me that now that I am a mom and not a girl anymore, so it’s normal to be like that. But I don’t accept this saying. Watching our weight is not only about looking good but we should think for our health perspective.

I have been doing some exercises, being more active only when the Spring is here, I realize that I have not been doing enough on a regular basis especially during the freezing cold Winter. So it’s time to call for action, to make some lifestyle changes. I am gradually shifting towards to a more mindful and plant-based diet, I have started drinking green smoothies and juicing. And also the  goal to stay active regularly. I don’t think I will ever be able to become a vegan but eating lighter and healthier is the way to go. I am a human and not a saint so occasionally I will still go for a piece of nice steak, beef hotpot and desserts.

This is a new lifestyle journey for me, so much to learn and read but that’s the fun part I like, so many new things to discover and explore. I think it would be nice to make use of this platform to share my new adventure with you !

As some of you may have noticed that I have changed to a new theme, I am hoping the new year with the new theme will motivate me to blog more frequently again !

In the meantime, if you want to search my previous recipes, they are still available in my old url.

Stay active and happy cooking!

    Great blog! Thanks for sharing your lifestyle journey. Wishing you a happy new year and hope to see more post to come!

    • Hi there, thank you for your comment and stopping by. I have not blogged regularly. Hope to pick up again : )

  2. Hi Janet, great blog here! Btw eat less rice, there’s too much carbs in Chinese cooking, but that’s just my opinion. I was almost 5 kg heavier when I was living in China, anyway you look pretty slim and fit to me, no need to worry about your weight at all.

      Thanks, I am trying to have more low carb meals but it’s much harder to achieve in Winter here in Switzerland.
