Bamboo Chairs

I fell in love with these little chairs when I saw them in China the other week.  

One great thing about China is the bespoke furniture industry,
but I like these just the way they are-all they need is a table to match.

Mardi Gras made in China

While I am far away from Nola this Mardi Gras day, 
 I know I am not actually too far from where all the throws are produced.

Fist homemade King Cake attempt

KING CAKE in Hong Kong?!?

 There is no king cake in Hong Kong. The pineapple bun is the closest thing and people eat pancakes on 'Shrove Tuesday'-HELLO! It's Mardi Gras! This year I was inspired by my uncle and decided I would make my own. My fist attempt was ok. I burned it a bit  on one side (thanks convection oven) and left a little too many air bubbles in the dough-but practice makes perfect.... and practice I did. No onee seemed to mind! And finally got the perfect traditional king cake!

Cooler or Ice Chest?

I always called it an ice chest- but it seems everyone else ( outside of New Orleans) calls it a cooler. 
Either way- I adore this design.
