Kicking Off the Long Week Off

Happy Friday, everyone! Just a short post today before I am heading into my week-long break from work. πŸ‘ŒπŸ‘Œ (Some plans for this week ahead so will keep you all posted! πŸ˜‰) Not only did I manage to organise a mini celebration for a colleague’s (belated) birthday at work today πŸ₯³πŸŽ‰ , but also went out for a top dinner with friends in the central area. πŸ˜‹ Life is doing good right now! πŸ˜†

My chocolate cake for the birthday celebration! (My first time trying to make these white chocolate feathers and they turn out rather well!)
Drizzling gravy over my bunless fried chicken burger in MEATLiquor in Queensway
And gelato to finish! 🍨

What are you up to this weekend? πŸ™‚

It’s Pizza Friday!

I doubt anyone can resist the temptation of a delicious pizza. And they always taste better after a night of heavy drinking to celebrate the end of the week! I particular enjoy the taste of homemade pizzas, given the fact I am one of those people who likes to go crazy with the toppings. Whether you like a plain old Margherita or a rich Meat Lovers, one of the best things of making pizzas at home is that you can put whatever you want on it!

The pizza dough recipe I used came from a Pizza Margherita recipe on BBC Good Food. (Link: ) It is very easy to adapt to make any types of pizza you want!


Quantity: 2 pizzas


300g strong white/bread flour

1 tsp instant yeast

1 tsp salt

200ml warm water

1 tbsp olive oil

Toppings of your choice


  1. Place the flour in a large bowl. Stir yeast and salt into the flour.
  2. Make a well in the flour mixture, and pour in water and olive oil. Mix until well-combined and you have a soft, fairly wet dough.
  3. On a lightly floured surface, knead the dough for 5 minutes and until smooth.
  4. Cover and set aside before use. (You do not need to leave the dough to rise but it is not essential for a thin crust.)
  5. Prepare the toppings.
  6. Roll out the dough on a floured surface. The dough needs to be very thin as it will rise when baking in the oven.
  7. Pre-heat oven to 240C/fan 220C /gas 8.
  8. Place toppings on pizza and bake for 8-10 minutes, or until crisp and toppings cooked.

Why not give it a try to start your weekend? Have it ready to cure your hangover the next day!
