Shanghai Disneyland!

Hello world, from behind the Great Firewall! I’ve been meaning to write a post about my day at Shanghai Disneyland / useful tips for China in general because of the limited information available online on Shanghai Disneyland. I surfed a lot of blogs before I visited in order to plan my strategy for Disney, and…

Bangkok: Mother May I

I didn’t have any expectations coming into here – I just knew it was going to be picturesque and the ambience, really chill. Gotta say that this is the best dining spot this trip (in terms of price / ambience / food combined): set in a colonial bungalow with a patio for outdoor dining and…

Tokyo: My Favourites (aka a Beginner’s Guide to Tokyo)

One of my colleagues is heading to Tokyo shortly and I am insanely jealous – I love Tokyo! Immediately I think of certain things I want to go back and eat, which triggered this entry – what are the food that I will return to eat, time and again? Each of these foods are foods…

California dreamin’ (Part 4)

The last post on my Californian trip – finally? It was such a loooong trip of good food – and I think I have not lost all the weight I put on since California. This post continues from where the last left off and covers Palo Alto (very briefly) and San Francisco, the last city…

California dreamin’ (Part 3)

In terms of chronology, this should come immediately after post 1 on California – it should cover Malibu (very briefly), Santa Barbara, Monterey and Santa Cruz. We kept Miley Cyrus’ Malibu and Rita Ora’s Anywhere on repeat as we drove on the Pacific Coast Highway through Malibu towards Santa Barbara – Malibu is extremely pretty…

California dreamin’ (Part 1)

Trying to get this post in before the year ends because as usual, life has gotten the better of me and I haven’t been the best at posting. About a month ago, Tdy and I went to California and did a road trip from LA to San Francisco. We were incredibly fortunate to have experienced…

Bintan, Indonesia: a whirlwind getaway

About two weeks ago, Tdy and I were itching to go somewhere over the 1 July weekend. As tickets to Bangkok were astronomical, we settled on Bintan which was a mere 45min ferry ride away. We booked the cheapest room at Angsana Bintan, and counted down the days to our trip. While we booked our…

Perth, Australia: eats / hits

4 words: It’s been a while. Since I’ve been to Perth, that is. However, I really don’t want to forget the wonderful time I had in Perth and the beautiful pictures I took must be shared with the World Wide Web. Here goes nothing! Perth has always been the quieter cousin of buzzy cities like…

Osaka: Sutoraikuken (ストライク軒)

We were starving and it was about 8.30pm when our Shinkansen pulled into Shin-Osaka. It was a mad scramble to find a hearty ramen joint to fill our rumbly tummies and a quick search on Instagram (yes, instagram!) unearthed this gem. It has a non-descript, unassuming front which we passed by before doubling back. Pushing…

Bangkok: Inter

I really liked Inter. If Thais had a cha chain teng equivalent, I think Inter would fit the bill. It seemed like a very local joint (well… as local as you can get – they have English menus) with people coming in to takeaway food. Well, I can understand – the pad thai is possibly the best rendition…

Macau: the meal that made the trip

I’ve left this in my written drafts for so long I think it’s time to finally complete and publish it… Well, Macau. Prior to this trip I had never been to Macau despite having been to Hong Kong a couple of times. This joint that Hysan brought us to was situated at the second storey…

Hong Kong: Mott 32

I had high expectations for this one – it had been on my to eat list for about a year already and I had read loads of reviews about its famous iberico char siew! Mott 32 is located at the basement of the Standard Chartered Building, a quick ten minute walk through air conditioned buildings…
