Travel is appealing for so many reasons. The joy of discovering something new, of experiencing a unique moment in time and of seeing something not everyone is able to see. One could have more life experiences, more wisdom and personal development. And so you might decide to do something like climb into the world’s largest acidic volcanic crater. How difficult could it be, right? Before … Continue reading Descending into the mouth of a smoking volcano | Two girls enter Ijen Crater
Ahh, Taipei. A place I’ve been to 7 times already yet feel like I’ve barely scratched the surface of what there is to explore. I first visited this city on a family trip about 5 years ago and thereafter went on 4 dancing/eating trips, a weekend trip and a work trip. And based on these visits, I’ve put together five 1-day itineraries of my top … Continue reading Five 1-day Must Do Itineraries in Tai-rrific Taipei!
When I said I was going to Melbourne, nearly everyone said ‘you MUST go to Hardware Societe’. And so I did – but along the way, I also discovered another wonderful cafe by serendipity (via a friend’s post on Instagram), which I feel I must blog about first. And that cafe is Humble Rays. Located just about a 5 minute walk (maybe 10, if you … Continue reading Humble Rays | A Shining Light In Melbourne’s Cafe Culture
Did you know that Budapest was once two different cities, Buda and Pest? The charming Hungarian city became one in 1873, but the two sides retained their distinctive characters even till today. Budapest is an absolutely beautiful city, oozing with charm and history at every turn. Here is my personal take on what you can do in this lovely city in 24 hours. Have fun! 1. … Continue reading Budapest in 24 Hours
Last month, I had around 3 days to spend wandering around Adelaide and so decided to visit some of the cafes on offer in this quiet, chill city. Most of the cafes only open till around 4.00pm on weekdays though so it is a good idea to go early. Quite a few are closed on Sundays too. My general thoughts on the cafe scene in … Continue reading A Skip and A Hop Through Adelaide’s Cafes
Hi everyone! So this is not a full out blog post on my recent trip to Ubud in Bali, but I just wanted to write a quick update that… I’m back! And that Ubud is truly a wonderful, peaceful place that one can easily spend 2 weeks in. I went there on a solo trip with the intention of getting away and devoting some time … Continue reading I’m back from Bali!
When I saw first saw this restaurant on Tripadvisor, I thought ‘Man, it’s a bit far out from the old town of Riga (where we were staying)’, and so I wasn’t sure if we should pay it a visit. However after further discussions with my travel mates and some planning of our sightseeing such that it could factor in nicely into our route, we decided … Continue reading Vincents | Deserving of ‘Top Restaurant in Riga’ Rating
Wow, it’s already June. That was fast! And while in Singapore it is mostly hot all year round, in other parts of the world June heralds the start of the summer season. I recently found out from ZALORA that they just launched an awesome summer special Jetstar promotion yesterday, with 32 prizes up for grabs – 8 grand prizes and 24 consolation prizes! All you … Continue reading Win an Epic Summer Vacation Sponsored by Zalora X Jetstar
It’s somewhat puzzling to me, that when I tell people I dance salsa, the first response I almost always get is ‘Oh, so do you take part in competitions?’. And the answer I give is also almost always the same – no, not really – maybe sometimes, but mostly I just dance for fun at socials or parties, or do performances. I guess that’s the … Continue reading The Magic of Salsa Social Dancing
Gosh. I only just realised today that I haven’t blogged for about 4 months! Been so incredibly busy, but not to worry, am still passionate about food (just take a look at my Instagram hehe). Anyway, I’d like to quickly share a bit about a gem of a dessert shop I visited in Taipei in August. Which actually many of you likely already know about, … Continue reading Patisserie La Douceur, Taipei
So I did say that I’d start writing a bit about fitness and travel on this blog too, and when better to do so than after a recent short three day weekend trip to Vietnam for work. So in between work engagements, I had the chance to visit a couple of F&B establishments and shopping areas. I mainly stayed within District 1 though, with a short foray into … Continue reading A Little Saigon Adventure
I love food. I really do. And if you’ve been following my posts, you’d probably have realised that by now as well. But how does one eat all this glorious food without… well, expanding? That’s a challenge I constantly struggle with. As a young girl, I really disliked exercising. At 15 years old, I weighed a fairly hefty 57kg and ran 2.4km in a pathetic … Continue reading Food, Fitness and Travel
