Osaka Diary: Day 1 & 2

February 13, 2018

What We Did Day 1: Shinsaibashi, Dotonbori & Namba I flew to Osaka with ANA* (via Tokyo) and arrived to a beautiful sunrise at the airport. The tarmac crew were the cutest i’d ever seen – they’d stop whatever they were doing and just wave at the plane as it started to taxi on the runway. That really brightened up my day especially after an exhausting 11hr flight from Sydney. I had a different arrival time than the rest of…

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…

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…

Less Than 24 Hours In: Macau

August 19, 2017

What We Did We took the Turbojet from the Hong Kong terminal which took about an hour. I remember the journey being pretty rough (worse than turbulence on a plane. i was legit paranoid that the ferry would flip over) so i forced myself to sleep the entire way. I woke up once and saw it being really crazy outside – waves splashing furiously against the window, kids crying – so i forced myself back to sleep before i had…

London Diary

August 5, 2017

So I finally made my way to that part of the world after 26 years. The journey there seemed like forever; travel time itself was 29 hours from Sydney and it took another 6 hours before i could settle in to Portsmouth (where i spent a week). I¬†managed to get a business class upgrade on the flight from Dubai to London (i flew Emirates) and my gosh, the liberation my knees felt when i had so much leg room. And…

Less Than 24 Hours In: Paris

July 9, 2017

I decided to surprise the boyf with tickets for a day trip to Paris on our monthsary, given how hard he has been studying over the past 2 months we were incommunicado. I used to have this obsession with the Eiffel Tower in my younger years (that obsession has now transitioned to the aurora) so i was pretty excited to see it for the first time, especially since it was with the boyf. We only had 6hours to look around…
