Which brings us to Torii. Torii on Jalan Batai, Damansara Heights, we read, would be […]

Dining like a Maharani @ Passage Thru India

Here’s something we hear rather often. “I like Indian food, but I don’t eat it enough.” If you’re one of those people, who doesn’t automatically think Indian cuisine when you’re eating out, join the club. But that recently all changed when we chanced to to walk into Passage Thru India several weekends ago, after a […]

Kogetsu @ Saujana

There’s definitely no shortage of Japanese restaurants in KL, but sometimes, the older establishments, are still the best. Well, on our books anyway.

The Asian African Carnival 2015, Bandung

After traveling around Bandung and exploring all the land had to offer, it was time to witness, a street carnival. The Asian African Carnival 2015.

An INCH, A PLATE, & A Groove in the Pearl of the Orient

Penang has always been a hit or miss dining and entertainment scene for us. It’s always a miss when we’re out there alone. But, if it’s with a local or someone who’s lived there for more than 6 months showing us around, it’s always a hit. On a recent trip up north to the Pearl […]

Taste Enclave Sunway Pyramid

Taste Enclave – we’ve walked past many times, and never really felt the urge to go in, since we usually prefer food on the streets. There has now been a trend in Malaysia the past few years to put famous local street food brands into comfortable air-conditioned food halls at shopping complexes. Good idea? Yes, […]

Fuji Onsenji Yumedono Ryokan & Mt Fuji

From Nagoya, we realised that there was no direct train to Mt. Fuji, for obvious reasons. Climbing up the mountain side would require a bus. Since we were coming from Nagoya, we had to catch the Shinkansen Nagoya to Mishima Station (1:50 hour ride), then from Mishima, there were daily bus services from Nagoya to […]

48 hours in Hamburg

Touch down Hamburg. A nippy morning of 6°C but sunny nonetheless. It was like Hamburg decided to put on her best face just for this blogger. So, my first 48 hours were a catatonic whirlwind of fun in the sun, to say the least. Here’s how I spent it..
