I haven’t traveled around every corner in Asia yet. But I’m getting there. I haven’t even visited China yet. And I’m Chinese! Ever so often I’ll visit the same countries over and over. And that’s because there’s just so much to see. So much to do. But so little time!
Here you’ll find posts on just anything I’ve come across on travels. Food, places to check out, how to get to certain places, etiquette, a few anecdotes here and there and lessons I’ve learned. And I do learn new things every time. And did I mention about food!
Nice Little Hotel in Seoul – Not Expensive but Not Cheap Either The Nine Tree Hotel is located in Myeongdong. One of my favorite fun neighborhoods in Seoul. Not only can I find great Korean restaurants, but also the nicest affordable hotels in South Korea’s capital city of Seoul. I found Nine Tree Hotel while doing […]
Digging Into Malaysia’s Famous “Chilli Pan Mee” I came across my first ever bowl of Chilli Pan Mee when I went on a “Shutter Therapy” with Robin Wong. That was a few years ago. Since then I have made it a mission to get myself a nice bowl of traditional Malaysian Chilli Pan Mee in […]
And a Much Anticipated Visit to Suwon’s Fried Chicken Street (수원 통닭거리) After my first ever Suwon day trip from Seoul last year I was so excited to go back as soon as I could. As much as I enjoyed exploring Suwon’s Hwaseong Palace (화성행궁) and its magnificent fortress, I missed out on a place I […]
The Cicada Market – A Place You’ll Enjoy Even When You Hate Shopping… But that’s just me. I’m a big grump when it comes to shopping. However I do love taking a stroll through any of Thailand’s famous night markets like Bangkok’s Talad Liab Duan. And certainly around Hua Hin’s Cicada Market. Now there really isn’t that […]
I often travel to Singapore because it’s not far away from Thailand. But like what most people say, Singapore ain’t such a big place. And as much as I hate to say, not much to do for a middle aged traveler like me. There’s Universal Studios Singapore. But even then most average S’poreans will tell […]
Twice a year I make a trip to Malaysia’s capital city Kuala Lumpur, usually staying for a week. I don’t go there for business. And I don’t go there for leisure. I just go to KL to eat. Kuala Lumpur is a easy 2 hours flight from Bangkok, Thailand. With another 30 minutes worth of travel time […]
With a Short Trip to One of My Most Favorite Spots in the World… Arashiyama! After staying a week in Kuala Lumpur and then back to Bangkok, a good buddy of mine I knew from my government contract days asked if I wanted to head over to Osaka for sushi. Why not? Osaka has a […]
The Izumi Hotel – Just One of Many Two Star Budget Hotels in KL I’ve come across the Izumi Hotel name quite a few times while searching for budget 2 star hotels in the Bukit Bintang neighborhood of Kuala Lumpur. So this time I decided to book a room at the Izumi for a couple of […]
Getting Manicures, Pedicures and Nail Art in Bangkok Okay, so if you don’t already know by now I’m a guy. And I don’t know anything about nail salons and gel manicure services. So how would I know which is the best nail salon in Bangkok? The same way I did my research for a post on where […]
Seoul, South Korea Gets Better and Better Every Year… Seoul is the best and easiest city to explore on foot. I have been visiting Seoul once every year for the past 5 years. It’s my favorite city for stopover whenever I fly Korean Air from Bangkok to New York. Though to me, it’s not just any […]
