Oh Deer

January 29, 2018

Such beautiful creatures! Finally paid a visit to Nara Park, home to countless of wild deer, but despite being wild, there’s nothing wild about their habitat. There are easily thousands of tourists each day, and you can purchase a pack of deer biscuits for a mere 150yen. They are somehow very well-mannered towards vendors though, never disrupting business and only hounding you the moment food falls into your hands. One of them made it a mission to stalk my dad’s…

The Wizarding World of Harry Potter

January 23, 2018

Spending Christmas with a little bit of magic. The main reason for our visit¬†attraction in USJ is most definitely the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. My inner child was screaming in delight and did you know that you can actually walk through the castle?! That would’ve been such a highlight but sadly the line was snaking and we couldn’t be bothered to wait. It felt like the perfect season to visit though – it was Christmas and winter in Japan…

Day Trip: Kobe

January 18, 2018

What We Did I thought it’d be nice to have kobe beef in Kobe itself so i decided to take my family there for our Christmas Eve lunch. We arrived Kobe 2hrs before our reservation but ended up getting sushi rolls and small appetizers from Sogo’s food hall since we had time to kill. Our lunch was at Sai Dining, a small underground restaurant that only sits 28people at a time. All dishes are served as a course meal of…

Singapore Diary

September 30, 2017

What We Did Day 1: Orchard Rd & Marina Bay Sands Our flights got in around the same time so I rendezvoused with Melissa at the airport and we caught an Uber to the city. My brother was due to meet up with us later that day and since we could only drop our bags off before check-in time, we killed time by wandering around Orchard Rd. I was not used to the humidity, and after spending an all-nighter in…

Hong Kong Diary

September 15, 2017

What We Did Day 1: Central, Sheung Wan & Lan Kwai Fong Melissa and i have always talked about visiting Hong Kong together, so it was a little surreal when we finally put plans into motion, despite being so spontaneous. Our flight got in at 9am and since we were only allowed to drop our bags off at noon, we took our time and had brunch at our first Michelin-star restaurant at the airport. Unlike Singapore’s humidity, it was that…
