Luang Prabang, Laos

We took a 4 day trip to Laos and the only city on our itinerary was Luang Prabang. We wanted a nice relaxing trip and I wasn’t too keen on going to Vientiane since it sounded just like the other capitals. We decided to fly through Bangkok after looking at all the other options (flying…

Supermarket fun – Singapore

I love walking through the super markets to see the different types of foods that are available here and how the marketing is done, especially the different flavors of Western food items. Some interesting flavors and fun items I’ve seen in the super markets so far.

Yangon, Myanmar

Myanmar (Burma) was a very interesting experience. I didn’t know what to expect since the country has been closed off for so long to the outside world but hearing all the recent news about the direction towards democracy and Aung Sang Suu Kyi had me intrigued so we booked a short trip to Yangon (only…

Phnom Penh

I had been wanting to visit Phnom Penh so when my friend, Roya told me she was living there for a few months I decided to take the opportunity since its always a better experience when someone is showing you around. It was a quick last minute 24 hour trip but I got to see everything…

Things I Love About Singapore

Shop houses. I love the beautiful shop houses. Especially when they are painted in pretty colors. They can be found all over town and house boutiques, restaurants and some are even cute little apartments! Food. It is no secret Singapore is internationally renowed for it’s food. I’ve had a great time exploring the different dishes from Chicken…

Rainbow Xiao Long Bao

I finally got a chance to try the multi-colored and multi-flavored Xiao Long Bao at Paradise Dynasty! I love the original so when I saw all these other flavors, I really wanted to see if anything could surpass it. Xiao Long Bao is a Shanghainese dumpling specialty filled with pork and a soupy broth and I first…

The Angkor Temples

Over the long weekend I went to Siem Reap to see the mighty Angkor temples. It was such an adventure! From climbing across the ruins of temples and hiking up the jungle to see carvings in the river, it was such a magnificent experience. The Cambodian people are so incredibly nice and we got very…

Vietnam

Vietnam was absolutely lovely. The people are so friendly, the food is amazing and it is such a diverse country that there is so much to see. We only did a one week trip which was definitely not enough to see everything but we did get a taste of the main cities. I hope to…

Dim Summing It Up!

I was really excited to go to Hong Kong especially since I’ve heard so many comparisons between Hong Kong and Singapore. I would have to say, although they are two modern, expensive cities of pre dominantly Chinese population, the similarity ends there. English is much less spoken in Hong Kong (even though it was a former…

Delhi in a flash

I didn’t have too much free time in Delhi this time but I still got to check out a few things. I love exploring new shopping areas so this time I checked out Greater Kailesh I (GK) market also known as M Block. I loved this area with it’s tree lined streets and cute boutique shops. I would highly recommed…

Diwali

Celebrating Diwali in Singapore! Awesome to have a day off 🙂

Well I can’t believe it but it’s been one year for me now in Singapore! I feel incredibly lucky for this opportunity to live and work in a foreign country.Time flies but I feel like I’ve accomplished so much and yet am very excited for the rest of my stay here. It’s a great sense…
