Gourmet Burger Union HK ♡

Hey guys! 
So some of you may remember, I went back to Hong Kong last year in late summer with my boyfriend. It was an amazing trip experiencing Hong Kong all over again with my boyfriend and showing him all my favourite places and people I grew up with. I said I would blog about it but lets be honest lol it's already too late and I'm too lazy to go through so many pictures and organize them into posts xD And I'm also going back in a few months so I promise to actually prepare a blog for it! 

But one place I really wanted to post about is my favourite burger joint!!! This place is called Gourmet Burger Union and hands down best burgers I've ever tasted! I'm more of a chicken nuggets and fries fries fries kind of girl. Or I guess I'm super picky on my burgers that I don't bother ordering it anymore. But my god this place lit my burger passion like none before!!
Me and my girlfriend actually stumbled upon this heaven after a night of partying. We woke up late and was on a mission for the most fulfilling hangover food ever. I live near the Soho area of Central so we actually had a lot of choices. But we made the best one hehe.
So when I went back last summer, I was so determined to eat that exact burger I had a year ago lol! It was that good. Even my boyfriend was like why are we eating western food? But afterwards, he knew whats up lol
It's a small cozy restaurant with a few staffs but surprisingly it's never crowded! The menu is huge and all the burgers are not your typical burger. Definitely gourmet quality beef, cheese and veggies! They only use 100% grass-fed angus beef from New Zealand, naturally raised and no additives. Or you can always custom make your own burger just the way you like it!

The price is not bad at all and trust me, your burger will be awesome.
It was so hot and humid in Hong Kong that I ended up putting my hair in a ponytail most of the time!

A few selfies while we wait for our lunch! I ordered my Double Truffle which has angus beef patty, truffle cream, gruyere cheese, caramelized onion and arugula. And my bb ordered the Southern Swine which has angus beef patty, sharp provolone cheese, smoked bacon, arugula, red relish and smokey bbq sauce! Of course with a side of fries and onion rings.

.... And then it's ready!!!
For me, the patty either make or break any burgers. It must be super thick, juicy, succulent, tender and flavourful. I am IN LOVE with the Double Truffle. The gruyere cheese, truffle cream and arugula with the quality angus patty is to die for! And the patty is seriously just perfect with the right amount of bread to patty ratio. And nothing can beat a side of fresh crispy fries and onion rings. Unnnnnggggghhhhhh. Even my bb was raving how it's one of the best burgers he ever had! 

Wish I took better pictures but then I decided to eat! Story of my life lol. And it was so so so so good! I highly recommend you to try them out if you're in Hong Kong! Definitely a must-go!

♥ BENIGHTED ♥

The days before the weekend was hell. I was swamped with so much work and assignments and papers to write ugh. But right after Friday, I knew it was gonna be so worth it because...... I get to see my favorite band!!!! You guys have no idea how much it means to me. I "like" or "very like" a lot of bands but I'm not the type to have "favorites". But let me tell you, if I ever do have favorites, it's like a whole new level. In my ears, they were perfection, everything I love in metal all in one band. I couldn't imagine seeing them live because they weren't very active and didn't tour out of Europe. But behold this year!!!!!!!!! First Canadian tour and they came to Vancouver!!! It was like a dream come true omg I really cried that night haha

Some pre-show selfies and witty bathroom graffiti

The show was at a pub so we decided to go early. It wasn't the best place but there wasn't a lot of people so we got lucky to hang out with the band before and after the show! We managed to take a few photos before we got sweaty. The vocalist said I smell nice! *w* Of course Benighted was headlining along with guests Bookakee, Riftwalker and Acidic Death. 
Benighted ♥
Bookakee's lil gorey skit - Brutal C-section! They do something different every show. I talked to the vocalist after and he said he made all the props! Such skill & dedication! And it actually looks very real lol all the intestines and blood and skinless masks etc.
Of course I had to buy some merch. a shirt and 2 CDs. I asked few of the band members to sign the shirt! But then I realized I won't be able to wear it so my bf bought me another one <3 I'm planning to buy a portrait-size bulletin board to pin the signed shirt so I can hang it up ^^ I love the artworks on band shirts
T-shirt front & back ♥ Albums: Carnivore Sublime & Asylum Cave



I'm still like awestruck from last weekend! It was literally one of the best nights yet and I'm so happy!

Thanks for reading!
