“An Evening of Indulgence” – the Launch of Double Gold

What an unexpected surprise and honor to have been flown in specifically for the grand launch of Double Gold, in Yangon Myanmar! In less than 12 hours boarding the plane, we found ourselves at the swanky downtown bar in Yangon, called Union Bar. The entire place was gleaming in Gold.. rather apt we thought for […]

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. I could not wait to see how the folks of Bandung would carry this off. A street carnival no less, starting from Simpang Lima area, the east side of Asia […]

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 […]

Top 10 Ways to Experience Bandung

I used to think that Bandung was only famous for its shopping. But many years ago, when both me and the hubs arrived to discover the secrets of Java, I realized it was much more than just retail bargains. For we soon fell in love with the people, the land, and its cuisine. Java’s high […]

Touch down Hamburg, and still a little dazed from my 15 hour flight from Kuala Lumpur. I was happy though that I was headed towards a rather interesting hotel, which would be home for the next two days. Incidentally, if you have a couple of days in Hamburg, here are some exciting things you can […]

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..

Off to Hamburg for #STSHamburg !

No one, but no one tells you to visit Hamburg. No one even tells you how cool Hamburg is. Go visit Berlin, Munich, Frankfurt.. they say. And so Hamburg, bigger than all but Berlin, remains a bit of a mystery, but that’s OK, because I am totally looking forward to meeting a Hamburgian (not the […]

5 hip accommodations from around the region

Ah.. Wednesday’s for many, are synonymous with a mid-week sigh of relief.. you’ve made it past the Monday blues and dreaded Tuesdays.. and only 2 more days to the weekend. That may be so, but Wednesdays these days, to us, have become synonymous with something completely different. Travel bargains. We are of course talking about… Visa Wednesdays. And […]

10 Adventures in Nagoya

From Kyoto, it was time to catch our ride to Nagoya. While the Nozomi Shinkansen (bullet train) is the fastest, the JR pass does not cover this, so you can take either the Kodama or the Hikari (2nd fastest train). We opted for Hikari, because on the train schedule, it was the next train along, and […]
