Copenhagen Kongens Nytorv station   Nyhavn   Public transport in Copenhagen runs 24-7. The city is clean and safe with lots of open and green spaces. Education and healthcare is free. With...

    Denim, cute waiters and one amazing meal

    I’ve had more than my fair share of Asian and European cuisine, but modern Nordic is something new to me. On a short layover in Copenhagen (the city rocks, by the way), I went to Amass. Owner and chef, Matt Orlando’s background is impressive, having worked in many Michelin-starred restaurants including The Fat Duck,...

    moerenuma park sapporo2

And having some winter fun. Christmas market – Odori Park, Sapporo   Sapporo Classic beer – special brew available only in Hokkaido....

    Passed by this hole-in-the-wall coffee shop and stopped for a drink. I said “Uncle, one kopi tarik please” and he gave me this dashing smile. And he makes an awesome cuppa. Location: next to Sentul market, along Jalan Sentul. Google map here.

    nasi lemak bungkus permaisuri 1

    What can RM1 get you these days? Not much really, no thanks to the ever-rising cost of living in KL. So it was really a nice surprise to stumble upon this. Fluffy coconut rice with delish sambal ikan bilis for RM1. The only thing missing is the fried peanuts, which I’ll gladly overlook for...

    ayam kampung Khadijah cheras velodrome3

    It’s been a good day if I had a good meal. Not necessarily anything fancy or expensive, just simple dishes done really well. And it was one of those days when we discovered this Malay food stall in Cheras Velodrome. There is a decent variety of nasi campur here. Nothing elaborate, just simple homey...

    On the way from Pavillion to KLCC, we stumbled upon this! Seems that there is a Comic Fiesta at KLCC Convention Centre and many have taken the opportunity to cosplay. Just another day in Starbucks. I’m feeling like I’m in Harajuku  :)

    seoul - noryangjin market smiling lady

    One of my favorite ways to spend the morning – pottering around wet markets. Noryangjin is not a huge market. If you have time to spare, it’s a nice way to spend a couple of hours. This is a wet market, literally. If you decide to visit Noryangjin, do leave your favorite shoes behind. Navigating...

    Going down south always feels a bit like coming home. After all, this is where I spent a good decade of my life. Despite the crazy rise in property prices, food here remains quite affordable. I’m surprised that a bowl of noodles still cost SGD2.50 and you can even get ice-blended juice for SGD1!...

    Arthur and his daily pint

    This trip was inspired by Anthony Bourdain’s layover series. It’s not the best way to see a new place, but if you’re short of time, it’s better than not getting there at all. The Irish are a naturally friendly lot. Everyone I met had a ready smile. There’s generally a good vibe around here. The...
