Paris decided to greet me with snow. Yes, snow in March! I purposefully choose to sit by the window in the airplane because I don't want to miss out my first view of Paris. My forfeited aisle seat went down to the drain, though as the fog closed the view. I couldn't see anything until … Continue reading Paris Travel Diary #1 – Touch down Paris!
I feel giddy, excited and my heartbeat is still racing - I just booked my flight to PARIS! I finally did it!

It will be 5 days affair in March 2018. … Continue reading Paris 2018 – Let the Countdown Begin!
I think when we are talking about Thailand's culture, the ladyboys will be something that we can not miss. There are few transvestite cabaret shows both in Bangkok and Pattaya that you could pick from, e.g. Mambo, Calypso, and Playhouse in Bangkok. In Pattaya, there's Tiffany, Colosseum, and Alcazar. Then Phuket has the Simon Cabaret. These type of shows are mostly geared … Continue reading Thailand’s (Ladyboy) Cabaret Show
I could never imagine that such a place can actually exist in the oh so modern Tokyo. When I saw the picture on Instagram, I thought that the place was in Kyoto or somewhere else that is more... historic?

I know my way well around the Chatuchak market, Pratunam, and Siam. … Continue reading The Struggle to Find a Chinese Tea in Bangkok is Real
I could be quite adventurous at times, especially when it comes to food. I would like to taste everything once at least. And street food is a big thing for me. Fortunately, I'm blessed with a strong stomach. That is until I came to Wang Lang... Wang Lang is not all about food market, because … Continue reading Food Poisoning at Bangkok’s Wang Lang Market
I just got back from the night market and I can not wait to blog about it (could you sense how excited I am already?) Bangkok is a street food heaven in case if you don't know it yet. The reason I kept coming back to the Chatuchak weekend market whenever I came to this … Continue reading Bangkok’s New Rod Fai Ratchada Night Market
It's a mouthful title, I know -but there are too many places that you can go and choose to visit from in Kyoto. It's a relatively small city that packed with something for everyone. It has the history, nature, food (of course!), arts, attractions and a lot of places to do your shopping as well. … Continue reading You’ve Never Been to Kyoto if You Don’t Have Your Selfies in These Three Iconic Places
Usually, when I traveled, the days are capped around 10 days. I wish it could be longer, but my full-time job usually will not allow it. So in that limited time, I always have a packed itinerary. Jamming all the places that I want to see and crunching all the activities as much as a … Continue reading Homesick
Higashimaya District The thousand year capital temples city has so many temples! Not lying here. In Higashiyama district, the temples are probably only 500 meters away from each other. All the temples aside -I'm not a temple hunter type of person- there are so many things to see around the district. There are parks, attractions, … Continue reading Exploring Kyoto’s Old City – Higashimaya District
