I postponed blog for a while since I have been busy.
The travel in Japan and Europe was fantastic.
I did pop up in Japan, it was at Bar pancho in fujisawa, Kanagawa. They are Spanish tapas, I made their special menu- Vegan spanish tapas.
In Europe, it was for a short vacation - Amsterdam and Paris.
Then when I got back to Vancouver, did pop up. It was fun.
So. Now it have been a few weeks since the last pop up. I feel my life has been a little bit settle down.
I wrote this blog once a week before constantly - I must announce about a change - Blog posts won't be every week.
It will be random, but I will announce on Instagram & Facebook page when I posted.
I sometimes do easy dinner gathering with my house mate at our backyard to cheer up for our life.
We both are in food industry. Working in this industry is always have million things to do and sometimes rack of time to take a break for our life.
