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…

Shinkansen Eats

On the Shinkansen right now and this is the spread KYW and I got to share. While most people would get an ekiben, we decided that more is more, and bought a bit of everything to try. Let me first start with the juices: fresh peach, fresh tomato and fig. I’ve never had fresh tomato…

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…

Bangkok: Krau Apsorn

Hello from Bangkok, aka every Singaporean’s go to destination for food and shopping. It’s been 22 years since I’ve been here (yes I was 2 when my parents first brought me, and I haven’t returned since) and I had great expectations for all the food I was gonna eat! Early dinner at Krau Apsorn did…

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…

Hong Kong: What I ate while waiting for my next meal

Taking a leaf out of YY’s book to write on the commute to work – anyway it’s been a super long time since I’ve updated, so I might as well. Hong Kong, as always, is a great city to eat through. I’ve always liked Hong Kong for its efficiency and the food it has to…

Tokyo: WHAT TO EAT

I feel like I have to blog about Tokyo before I get all lazy and forget about it, and then the post never materialises. This Tokyo trip was highly highly spontaneous, meaning that other than Disney, Nick and I didn’t plan ANYTHING at all. The only planning that we did was what to eat, and…
