I’ve been obsessed with tiny houses since about a year ago, when I chanced upon a youtube video of a law student who built his own tiny house in order to avoid paying steep rentals. The whole idea then was just so new to me, I thought it […]
This is my current hiking gear as of now. I don’t have an extensive list because I always like to keep things that I use most of the time (and sell the others away). I’m still a relatively new hiker and I only go for hiking trips 2 […]
Of all the places we stopped by throughout the road trip, I was most excited about Yosemite. So after a nights’ stay at Mammoth Lakes, we drove about an hour and arrived at Yosemite Valley, where our accommodation was at.
In May this year, my friends and I decided to make a short trip to Yogyakarta, a city on the Indonesian island of Java. A couple of them had suggested to climb Mount Merapi, and to be honest, I’ve never really considered climbing a volcano, not to even […]
Nepal has been a country I’ve been wanting to visit, because of how little I knew about the place. And to be honest, it isn’t a typical ‘bucketlist’ destination to many people. Travelling to me is about taking a break from familiarity, and opening one’s eyes to the world. Being […]
I fondly remember this trip to Paris because it was my long awaited graduation trip, and also my second time taking a plane, and first flight out alone. I met up with a friend of mine who was living in Paris at that time, and stayed at her […]
When I was in Paris, I took a short 1 hour 45 minutes flight to Edinburgh(via Ryanair) and spent a really short 3 days there. Kind of regretted not having more days here, but I was a poor fresh grad then, didn’t have much money left to extend my stay. Anyway, Edinburgh’s gorgeous. Love the cobbled streets, especially along Royal Mile.
After my family and I booked our trip to Seoul, I spent a couple of months really researching on the things to eat there, and our itinerary was basically planned around local markets, and seriously, the must- tries in the capital of South Korea. I’m not a Korean skincare junkie, so I wasn’t super excited about the shopping (though I did compile a list of items to try and managed to get some affordable ones).
So here is the list of street food to try in Myeong-dong! Our Airbnb was about 15 minutes walk there so we went there a few times during our one- week stay.
I recently went for a short trip to Penang. While it was essentially only 2 full days, my friends and I ate so much, practically non-stop, from morning till night. So much Char Kway Teow. Can’t get enough of it for sure. We literally had it from breakfast till supper.
It was crazy.
But so, so good.
I visited Tekapo on my previous trip to NZ, and it was kind of like the very first place that made me fall in love with the country. It was such a short, day trip that time, so I felt like I must come back and spend a little bit more time here on this trip. The Astro Cafe is and will always be my favourite cafe on earth. And also, I got to do a stargazing tour this time round! Church of the Good Shepherd was also open just in time to visit. I remember on the previous trip, I’d just missed the closing time.
This was my last leg of the 17 days backpacking trip, so I was feeling a little sad while on the bus from Mt Cook. The 4pm bus took about 2.5 hours to get to Tekapo, so it was evening by the time I got there. Being the last stop of the trip, I decided to check- in into a decent hotel, The Godley, which sits just in front of the lake. After which, first order of business was to Kohan to get my salmon sashimi fix! So, so glad to be back.
