Travels: Paris - Ze Kitchen Galleria Bistro (KGB)

A short work trip to Paris brought me to KGB, the "test kitchen" of the more famed, 1* Ze Galleria Kitchen.

Knowing the food philosophy revolved around an Asian-French fusion concept , I didn't quite know what to expect.

Fortunately, the meal was pretty good. I would say Japanese flavors dominated the Asian side of flavors, and not in any way bad.

For the appetizer, one could have 4, 5, or 6 small courses (up to the Chef's recommendation).  I went with 4.

I particularly enjoyed the fish of the day, a sea bass glazed with a light soy base foam sauce.  Generally not a big fan of foams, the fish was the tenderest of tender and need little additional flavoring so all was good.

Dessert was ordered absolutely out of pure greed; it was difficult to resist anything with chestnut cream. With additional black sesame ice cream, one of my favourite desserts in the world, I was sold before the meal started. Surprisingly, it was light enough for my already-protesting stomach.

How do you juggle it all :( ?

I just feel that I don't have enough time - for the husband and  much less for myself!

During the workday, I make sure I try to go home on time so I could spend a couple of hours with A, and put him to bed. Then it's time to have my last pump at about 9pm before I just want to  zone out and crash.  The boy wakes up at least 3 times ever since his last leap when he learnt how to stand. Additionally, he fell really ill for the first time (i.e. antibiotics).  Prior to that, he cries 1-2 times but easily soothed with pacifier or with some milk. Because of these frequent interrupted sleep, the man and I took turns to fall ill as well, and it is difficult to recover. I still have the head colds and occasionally coughing spells.

On weekends, our schedule revolves around family events, and then I try to plan so that A can try to get a nap or 2 as well as to plan our routes throughout the day so I would end up somewhere comfortable to pump when I needed to.  Often the nap part fails,…

OOOh, new flavour!

I have been eating Quest nutrition protein bars for years! I love the taste and they are less guilty than the real deal.  The flavours are pretty spot on and they are available at  I recently shared about this site as well.

I eat at least one of them a day to satisfy that sweet tooth. My favourites so far are the cinnamon roll and smores.  But I'm excited that a new flavour has been launched and can't wait for the Oatmeal Chocolate Chip flavour to arrive!
