Don’t you just love coffee? I surely do. Nothing in particular, since I’m no aficionado. But, I do appreciate a good cuppa anytime. For my last trip, I flew to Hanoi. In this city. I guess nothing is more welcoming than a cup of java. No wonder I managed to chugged down more coffee than… Read More Welcome Drink In Hanoi
This has got to be the best junk food I’ve ever had in my entire life. Sausage wrapped in thinly slized potato, deep fried, rolled onto some cheese powder, dabbed with some mustard. Savoured in Myeongdong Market, Seoul.
Teh talua, a mix of quickly whisked egg and tea (or coffee if you’d prefer it), added with condensed milk. Best enjoyed with a zest of orange at a warung kopi (coffee spot) in West Sumatera. Locals believe it enhances sexual performance.
This morning I was looking at hundreds of pictures that I took in Vietnam. Among many photos of the great limestones in Ha Long Bay and the delicious Bún chả (grilled pork and rice noodle) that we never seemed to get bored of, I found this one. A little morning scene in the charming Old… Read More Theatrical Hanoi

Not forgetting the many shops trying to seduce you into consumerism. Somehow it feels like being in some Dorama tha I used to watch. Standing in… Read More Saved By The Glico Man (Osaka)
Imagine waking up to this view everyday! Taken from the balconies of Chateau Chambord in the Loire Valley.

Of course, a trip to Norway is not a trip when salmon is not involved. Shortly after arriving, I… Read More Indulging On Some Norwegian Salmon
It’s the ultimate city…the city that I’ve left my heart at. Surely many people will agree that we just love San Francisco. The city by the bay that has many knick-knacks. It can be Union Square in downtown, Little Italy, China Town, or Japan Town. But, my favorite has to be the Pier. Pier 39… Read More To The Pier We Go!!
Being in LA is always something I’ve waited for every summer. It’s all about the sun, the surf, and hefty shopping in So-Cal. But for me, the thing that I looked for is not only those, it’s also having fun in the carnie. So, I decided to drive for roughly half an hour from my… Read More One Summer Day In The US of A
Ever since I watched The Painted Veil (an excellent movie starring Edward Norton and Naomi Watts), I always wanted to sail through a similar grandiose landscape. So far I haven’t made it to Guangxhi in China, where the movie is set. But, Ha Long Bay in Vietnam offers the same, maybe even a better view.… Read More Floating through the mist of Ha Long Bay
