Since Ponggo & I have been sharing pictures from events & travels lately, we were thinking, we should probably expand it to sharing our gastronomical escapades. So we tried. However, 70% of the time, we were busy eating—sometimes even to the point of not talking—just plain hungry after hours and hours of walking, exploring & commuting.
I initially wanted to come up with a section entitled, “Dessert Places in Hong Kong” but even before I could take a picture of my macarons, voila! They have disappeared! I must have gone into auto-pilot and shoved them into my mouth while walking even before my brain reminded me that I should be documenting things as initially planned.
Years ago, I met this show dog who can actually balance a kibble of dog food above his nose and he only ate it when his master told him too! ”Ahh…What an excellent skill”, I would recall while watching Ponggo’s dog Muffy chow down his tray of Cesar in under 10 seconds looking like an abused stray dog who never ate in years when in fact his last meal was a just a couple of hours ago!
Anyway, going back to being a food blogger, you know what they say about dogs & their human counterparts? Yup. Just like Muffy, our senses get excited when we see food. It was a struggle to choose photos from some our CF cards because most of them were shot in the I’m-not-yet-happy-with-this-picture-but-who-cares-I’m-hungry mode but here are some stuff we think you shouldn’t miss:
Laduree Macarons (Harbour City Tsim Sha Tsui, Hong Kong) – I don’t actually know if this still needs some introduction. It’s a well-loved macaron brand from Paris that around a year ago, when its building caught fire, it even trended on Twitter worldwide! Now it has branches in Hong Kong & Singapore. Unlike most of the macarons you see elsewhere, this has the (more…)
And, just like in school, here are some guide questions for our new post:
1. Do you love chocolates so much that when you don’t get to have them in a day or in a week you get cranky?
2. What are the useless props in this comic which is not at all related to the comics?
3. Do you like the background colors in this post or do you prefer the one here?
4. Can you find more cartoons that features the Pantone card as a prop? Where did this Pantone palette first appear & in what year?
You have 5 minutes to answer these questions. You have to pass your papers to the front once the time is up! Don’t forget to put your class number, name & section on the upper left!
Seriously though, here are more cartoons about food:

I’m back in Hong Kong and this time with my tour guide (and apparently hubby) Ponggo. Here’s a quick round up of some colorful & happy stuff from day 1!
These are the paintings of Alice Lai Nga -Yu at the Ting-ting (Tram) stop in Wan Chai. What a smart idea! Hopefully, we could have local exhibits like these along the road–so that art is more (more…)
No self-respecting decent person would probably greet herself online and say, “Happy birthday to me!” but let me
abuse take this opportunity to finally celebrate my birthday on this blog for the first time since its inception *Yeah! * I would always make some graphics for Ponggo’s birthday and then force Ponggo to post a “Happy birthday Tipsy” tweet on my birthday *har har* and feel so silly about doing a Googly cartoon for my own birthday. By the way, may I also greet our national hero Jose Rizal? I always thought we were somehow related because we shared the same birthday. Back in grade school, I thought he was my grandpa or something!
Nope, you don’t have to go through the hassle of thinking what to give me for my birthday. All I ask is for your to donate some time online & vote the Googly Gooeys as the Instagram Phenom of the year on the Tatt Awards 2013 Website. Remember that you can vote every hour (which means you can vote 24 times in a day if you’re a zombie). You can use your Twitter, Facebook or Google+ accounts. *And you thought I’d finally stop telling you about this, no?*
For those of you who have been tweeting, “But the website won’t let me vote!” Here’s what you can do:
