踏入六月天氣又悶又熱,做任何事情都好像提不起勁,經常像蛋黃哥懶懶行的樣子?看來「五月病*」可能要改名為「五六月病」呢
Muggy days continue in June make you feel lazy and tired, like the hottest Sanrio character Gutetama? Maybe it’s appropriate to rename “May disease” as “May-June disease”.

不過一日之計在於晨,無論如何,也要靜靜坐下來吃早餐,攝取一整天的動力!為了紀念人生首次寫Blog,就回味一下這頓或許是人生最豐富的早餐吧!
No matter what, morning hours is the best time of the day. Take time and sit down for breakfast as it helps you stay energized all day long! To log my first blog entry, let me recall probably the best breakfast in my life!

全球最大旅遊網站TripAdvisor上月發表2015年日本全國酒店早餐排行榜,神戶Hotel Piena(ホテルピエナ神戸)連續3年蟬聯冠軍寶座,實在厲害!
The world’s largest travel site TripAdvisor’s Japan subsidiary announced 2015 ranking of “Hotels with Delicious Breakfasts” based on the opinions and scores of hotels in Japan posted by the users. Hotel Piena Kobe in Kobe City ranks first for three consecutive years, which is kind of a big deal!

若能在家添置這個甜品角,該有多好!How wonderful life is if this sweets corner can be placed at home!

以前到外地旅遊,對早餐毫無要求,日本東橫Inn有免費飯團加味噌湯供應已經滿足,有些朋友甚至專門選擇沒有早餐的住宿,認為酒店早餐一般都沒有特別之處,到街上的餐廳還好,但這間酒店完全反轉酒店早餐的傳統概念!我深信,10個住客9個都是為了這頓冠軍早餐慕名而來的~
When traveling at a younger age, I had no expectation on hotel breakfasts at all. A simple stay in Toyoko Inn in Japan serving free rice balls and miso soup was good enough. Some of my friends even like to stay in hotels with breakfast excluded as they think eating out is better, but I can say Hotel Piena Kobe has overturned the traditional concept of hotel breakfast, alluring almost every guest to book a stay merely because of its supreme breakfast.

和洋自助早餐,每日早上7時至10時半供應(星期六、日和公眾假期提早半小時開始),僅限入住者專享
All-you-can-eat breakfast served from 7 to 10:30am every morning (opening at 6:30am on Sat, Sun & public holidays) for hotel guests only

五大特色:
Five Features:

1. 一進早餐會場便看見這個令人雙眼發光的甜品角,款式超過十多種,如芝士蛋糕、布甸、慕絲果凍和馬卡龍,每款都由甜品師父親手精心炮製,還特設凍櫃保持新鮮度,喜歡甜點的朋友不可錯過!只是論排場,比許多香港自助晚餐已強勁得多!
To start off with, there is the eye-catching desserts section filled with freshly made pastries, like cheesecakes, puddings, mousses and macaroons. Cooling drawers are specially installed to preserve optimum freshness of the sweets. Paradise for sweets lovers!

2. 專程由法國空運而來的牛角包,以及神戶著名麵包店地蔵家的麵包等,令人愛不釋手!不可不提的是酒店自家製奶醬和果醬「Milkish Jam」,在樂天市場連續9年榮獲國際品質評選會金賞,一共15種味道,每天精選9款讓住客於早餐時段享用。果醬在酒店大堂有售,適合送禮自用。奶醬較甜,果醬味道則清新突出!
Fresh croissants from France and bread from highly acclaimed local bakery Jizouya etc. Its homemade “Milkish Jam”, winning the Monde Selection Gold Medal in Rakuten Ichiba store for 9 years, is a must-try item in Kobe. Guests can enjoy 9 flavours selected from a total of 15 kinds during the breakfast buffet. It is also a great gift for self and others!

話說回頭,辭職信已遞,快將無袖一身輕,現正計畫行程,七月正式展開日歐之旅!要用中英對照方式分享的實在太多,時間太少,這段期間網誌將不定期更新,請大家多多指教~
By the way, I’ve just sent out my resignation letter. Soon to be unemployed, I am now busy at planning my trips to Japan and Europe which start in July! There are too many experiences to share in bilingual versions and too little time. Hopefully I could update this blog occasionally this month. Remember to check it out!
