Guide to getting a tailor made dress in Hoi An

If you’ve ever been to Hoi An, or Vietnam for that matter, you will know that custom-made clothing is a big thing there. You can create any design you want and the talented tailors will be able to recreate it for you in a couple of hours and for less than what you would pay for a similar item in H&M. So when I went pass this tailor shop in the old town area and saw the beautiful linen fabrics,…

Hoi An Travel Guide (Vietnam)

Despite the fact that it has become increasingly touristy over the past few years, Hoi An has an undeniable unique charm that sets it apart from other Vietnamese cities. It is a UNESCO heritage town that has preserved its architecture from the old days when it used to be major port in South East Asia. It showcases an eclectic mix of Chinese, French and Japanese influences and of course local Vietnamese traditions. We spent 4 nights and 5 days in…

I stumbled upon an…

Hong Kong Escapades: Big Wave Bay Beach

A couple of weekends ago, we took advantage of a rare sunny weekend here in Hong Kong (someone explain to me why it’s raining so much this year?!) and went hiking from Dragon’s Back Hike Trail to Big Wave Bay Beach. We set off relatively early (8am) hoping that we would arrive to the beach just in time for lunch. We took the MTR Island Line to Shau Kei Wan station. From there, we took the bus number 9 to…

Hong Kong Walks: Sheung Wan

Home is where the heart is… I’ve been living in Hong Kong for almost 3 years now. When we were apartment hunting, I visited many neighbourhoods on the Hong Kong Island side and I gotta say Sheung Wan was love at first sight. I knew that I wanted to live here and were lucky to find an apartment we liked pretty fast. Fast forward 3 years and we still live here and kind of refuse to move anywhere else! I’m…

Affordable date ideas in Hong Kong

It’s no secret that Hong Kong is one of the most expensive cities in the world. You can easily spend $100 USD on a meal for two at a trendy restaurant and while I love doing that once in a while, it’s certainly not something I can afford to do on a weekly basis. Having lived in Hong Kong for almost 3 years, my husband and I are at a “been there, done that” kind of phase where we gravitate…

A Photowalk in Haji Lane (Singapore)

Greetings from Singapore! I’m back in this beautiful city for a short solo business trip. My hotel is in the heart of Kampong Glam, an area that has become a hipster hangout full of little cafes and boutiques.
