The title of the this post does sound rather strange. You see, back in the 80s, barely a tween, I went to the allergist and took an allergy test. I had a positive reaction to peanut butter, and since that day, I did my best to avoid peanut butter and other products that contained it.
There were times when I unknowingly ingested the product, as in, eating a cracker and not knowing it contained peanut butter, but there was no allergic reaction after consumption. No hives, no closing of the throat, …
I didn’t find anything worth purchasing at the Temple Street Night Market in Hong Kong, but I did happen to come across some items that sparked my interest.
I almost bought this hamburger phone, but then I remembered that I don’t have a land line. Darn.
Cracker lighters. Took me a while to figure out how to turn it on.
Foam bread. Softer than the real thing, but I had no idea what purpose they served. Mouse wrist pads perhaps?
Key chains. Do not ingest.
Bacon cell phone leashes. Too bad my iPhone doesn’t have …
Experiencing dim sum in Hong Kong is a must. We went to the Majesty Seafood Restaurant for for a filling dim sum breakfast. I don’t think I ever had dim sum at 8:45am. What I love about Hong Kong Dim Sum is that the selection is vast, and often, many items can’t be found in Flushing or in Chinatown in New York City. My favorite was the deep fried bun stuffed with banana and red bean puree.

New York Times – IT took 24 years, but PepsiCo now has its own version of New Coke.
The PepsiCo Americas Beverages division of PepsiCo is bowing to public demand and scrapping the changes made to a flagship product, Tropicana Pure Premium orange juice. Redesigned packaging that was introduced in early January is being discontinued, executives plan to announce on Monday, and the previous version will be brought back in the next month.
Also returning will be the longtime Tropicana brand symbol, an orange from which …
Treasure Lake Golden Banquet Restaurant
The first day I arrived at Hong Kong, I met up with my relatives for dinner and for a special birthday celebration (not mine). It had been 16 years since I’ve seen my aunt and uncle, and I saw other relatives for the first time. The food was impressive, but I was so busy catching up with relatives and stuffing my face that I didn’t get a chance to take pictures of every dish.

Lan Fong Yuen
G/F Gage Street, Central (near the escalator)
Lan Fong Yuen is home of the famous pork chop sandwich and ramen platters. The pork chop sandwich was simple and well made. It’s a piece of fried pork chop sandwiched between a buttered sesame seed bun, tomato, and mayonnaise. Simply beautiful. We also ordered the French toast with coconut and cream filling, French toast with condensed milk and peanut butter, silky milk tea, and red bean ice (one of my …
Snapple beverages are going through a bit of surgery. Those recognizable labels that we have grown to love are hitting the road, giving way to a hipper, more modern look. Externally, the bottles will be changing shape to better fit cup holders and the labels will be revamped with new fonts and color schemes.
Perhaps the most significant change is in the formula. The company will be replacing the high fructose corn syrup with sugar. I’m not sure of what the reason for the change is. Maybe it’s due to the …

LONDON (Reuters) – Children with severe peanut allergies given small daily doses of peanut flour were able to build tolerance to the nuts, according to a study that suggests it is possible to treat the potentially deadly condition.
The small trial, the first successful program of its kind, aimed to slowly build immunity to peanuts in people with the common allergy, the team at Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge said on Friday.
“For all our participants, a reaction could lead to life-threatening anaphylactic shock, but now we’ve got …
