Travel

Travelling has got to be one of the greatest joys in life.

It all began with the packaged tours with the family every year. Then, as a teen, opportunities opened up: school field trips, backpacking with our partner/friends while on Overseas Student Exchange and of course the all important graduation trip – which marked the end of our student life. Entering the corporate world, business trips and overseas offsites soon became a monthly and, at times, a weekly affair. And, amidst the hustle and bustle of working life – trying to fit in personal trips to pamper one’s senses. Eventually, taking a year off work became a very real option when corporate life takes a toll…

…all these, stems from our love for travelling.

Although food is our first love, we occasionally write about our travel tales too. We hope you enjoy reading these tales as much as we enjoyed living them.

Noryangjin Fish Market What can be a better immersive experience than spending a couple of hours in the largest fish market in Seoul? We toured the market (got used to rude stares), ruined our shoes, held a live octopus and picked fresh seafood for our lunch. [LEFT] We were awed by the fishmonger’s swift filleting of the fish weRead More

[Denmark] Ti Trin Ned – An Intimate Affair

[Denmark] Ti Trin Ned – An Intimate Affair

It is the time of the year again to head back to the mother ship. This time round, instead of opting to fly into Billund through a connecting flight, I opted to disembark at Copenhagen and drove my way west to Jutland (since cost wise it works out to be the same). It was slightlyRead More

[London] Four Seasons Chinese Restaurant – DUCK MY LIFE

Hello All, today I have a story to tell. One fine day, a girl named P was in London and decided to check out this ‘famous duck place’ in Chinatown…. Many of her friends have told her about this AWESOME duck and in response she would always ask if it is better than her favorite Imperial TreasureRead More

[Ho Chi Minh City] Randomness & Fab Restaurants

This is another overdue post but I will like to give a shout-out to a couple of fab restaurants I visited in my last Saigon trip. Kita Coffee This charming café is located at the far end of Nguyen Hue Street. The café was great for sandwiches, pasta and people watching of the bustling streets in D1.

[Prague] An Unexpected Evening

[Prague] An Unexpected Evening

As we usher in the long weekend, I got reminded of how much I am yearning to travel. Gone are the days that I made use of each and every public holiday/business trip/school holiday to travel. These days, I am grounded by my obligations – obligations that I am glad to have the opportunity toRead More

[Malmo] Johan P. – Fish(soup)! What a great find.

[Malmo] Johan P. – Fish(soup)! What a great find.

In my recent business trip to Denmark, I hopped over to Malmo where I took a walk down memory lane. It was the place I used to frequent as an exchange student – a charming little town that my friends and I used to visit for our fish soup fix and architectural feast. During the recent shortRead More

[Billund] No.8 – Finer than expected

[Billund] No.8 – Finer than expected

First business trip since my return to the corporate world = (severe jetlag + low energy level) * first few days. The first week was spent in Prague where so much was happening I couldn’t figure day from night. Needless to say, I did not have the chance to experience any authentic Czech food nor breath inRead More

Fond memories of Breakfasts in [Melbourne]

Fond memories of Breakfasts in [Melbourne]

It’s been three months since my trip to Melbourne and just this morning I found myself missing the one thing that I neglect all too often – breakfast. Since it is not part of the plan to return there any time soon, all I can is to reminisce on my best breakfast experiences … CUMULUSRead More

[Melbourne] MoVida

[Melbourne] MoVida

I have been wanting to visit MoVida since the time I was in Sydney but opportunity did not arise. Now that I pass by MoVida in Melbourne almost on a daily basis (Melbourne is a relatively small city), I grabbed the opportunity and visited this two-hatted restaurant on my first week here. Melbourne is famousRead More

[Melbourne] Stokehouse Café – Your Friendly Beach-side Café

[Melbourne] Stokehouse Café – Your Friendly Beach-side Café

A trip to Melbourne is incomplete without a visit to St Kilda beach – especially it being Summer right now. Before my first visit to Melbourne, my friend described St Kilda as the “East Coast Park” of Melbourne. In some ways, I see where she is coming from – it’s location (conveniently located near theRead More
