A Seoul-ful trip, South Korea April 2017

After much planning, we finally arrived early morning on 16th April at Incheon Airport. From there we proceed to take the AREX (Airport Railroad Express) to Seoul station, and then we transferred to Subway Line 4 and got off at Dongdaemun History & Culture Park station. Since we were way too early from the standard…

3 Days 2 Nights Jeonju, South Korea April 2017

As there’s no train from Busan to Jeonju, express bus is our only choice. We took the subway from Busan station to Nopo station, 40mins journey through 21 stations. Followed the signage to Busan Central Bus Terminal and bought our tickets on the spot. There is an hourly bus heading to Jeonju so you need…

3 Days 2 Nights Busan, South Korea April 2017

Arrived early in the morning by KTX from Seoul and our AirBnB host were kind enough to pick us up from the station and brought us to her accommodation where we dropped our luggage. From there we head straight to Nampo station and after a brief walk we were at Jagalchi Market for lunch.

An adventure to South Korea April 2017

Even after months of planning things didn’t go exactly to plan, which is why it is important to be flexible in your schedule, try to allocate few hours (per day) or even an extra free day to cover missed destination/activity. Our first 3 days in Seoul was ruined by 2 days of rain, thus our…

Addiction Aquatic Development, Taipei

If you love seafood and have a bit of time on hand then I recommend paying Addiction Aquatic Development (ADD) a visit. I happened to chance upon this venue while Googling for a place for lunch, and boy, what a discovery! My visit lasted 2.5 hours but one can easily spend a whole day at…

The hunt for the best Char Kway Teow in Penang, Malaysia June 2016

I have an obsession with Char Kway Teow, or CKT for short, whenever I’m in a hawker center that’s the first thing I’d order whether it’s for breakfast, lunch, dinner or even supper. So what is CKT? It’s basically flat rice noodles fried in a wok under high heat to produce the “wok hei” aka smoky aroma….

Pizza 4Ps, HCMC, Vietnam

I’ve been wanting to visit this pizza establishment for quite some time, like for the last 2-3 yrs now!  I live and work on the outskirt of Ho Chi Minh City and a trip down town usually takes 45mins or longer depending on traffic. It’s more like a chore to go down unless I REALLY have…

Shilin Night Market, Taipei, Taiwan January 2016

Be warned, do not view this post on an empty stomach. Food galore ahead! If this is your first time in Taiwan then no trip is complete without paying a visit to a night market. It is easily accessible by Taipei Metro on the Tamsui Line (Red Line). If you alight from Jiantan Station one of the entrances…

Cow Sushi, Taipei, Taiwan January 2016

Ok, this is literally a direct translation from its Chinese name, 牛壽司 “niú shòu sī”. The shop does not have an official English name so Cow Sushi it is! Smack in between Nanjing East Road and Nanjing West Road in Zhongsang District, if you are looking for a place for good Sushi then you can’t go…

Kobe & Nara, Japan November 2015

While in Osaka we decided to make a half day trip to Kobe and Nara (on separate days) since they are only 40ish minutes away by train. To Nara We took a train from Namba Station to Kintetsu Nara Station, you have the option of using either the limited express or express line, both are fine. We took…

Osaka, Japan November 2015

Right, this post is long overdue considering the trip was made last month which is never a good idea as my memory isn’t exactly top notch these days. I’ll make it as short, simple and sweet as possible. It took about 3+ months of on and off planning, initially the plan was going to Tokyo…
