I’m sure many of you are aware of the ever popular travel accommodation platform called Airbnb, but did you know they now have something called Airbnb experiences? Instead of only hosting a place to stay, people can now offer up classes and experiences to the world, some of them extremely unique (like this wolf encounter for example OMG). It’s a great way to do something you’ve always wanted to do or never thought of, as well as getting to know…

Osaka Diary: Day 1 & 2

March 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…

Less Than 24 Hours In: Nara

March 6, 2018

What We Did We arrived Nara around noon and initially wandered around the couple of shops nearby, stocking up on Daiso’s heat packs before making our way towards Todai-ji Temple. It was crazy freezing on the day we were there, and when we stumbled across an old lady selling steaming hot sweet potatoes out of this portable wood-fired oven, we immediately started waiting in line (though we misunderstood the pricing and ended up paying 1,000yen for a sweet potato yikes). This…

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…
