A magical stay at ANANTARA HUA HIN RESORT, THAILAND

The Anantara Hua Hin Resort & Spa is the very first resort developed under the Anantara brand. We had a short stay in this resort recently and were charmed by the rich traditional design from its historic heritage surrounded by natural beauty all around. The name Anantara in Sanskrit means “without end” – an indication […]

AVANI+ HUA HIN RESORT, Thailand

When Air Asia started direct flights to Hua Hin in mid 2018, I knew I had to make a trip there. I enjoy Thailand and Hua Hin was definitely in my radar. However, my travel schedules were crazy last year and before I knew it, the year was out. Once 2019 dawned, I made my […]

PRAWN DYNASTY @ Taman Shamelin Perkasa, Cheras

With a name like “Prawn Dynasty”, it’s clear what the speciality of this restaurant is. Serving plump fresh udang galah or freshwater prawns, otherwise known as “tai thau hah” in Cantonese, the restaurant sees a steady stream of prawn lovers strolling in. Although open for just a few months, word has already gotten out about […]

FOOD GALORE in NISHIKI MARKET, Kyoto, Japan

One of our favourite haunts in Kyoto is the Nishiki Market.  We love markets and never fail to visit one whenever we travel to any city.  The market is the life centre of locals and of course, visitors as well.  It’s easy to get to the Nishiki Market.  It’s just about 5 minutes’ walk from […]

My Favourite Spots in KYOTO, Japan

As the former imperial capital of Japan for more than a thousand years, Kyoto is a beautiful and interesting city in the Kansai region. As it was spared much bombing during World War II, much of the city’s ancient architectural sites and pre-war buildings are still standing today. Interestingly, Kyoto was removed from the atomic […]

An idyllic stay in DANI BEACH COTTAGE, LANGKAWI

On a recent trip to the mystical island of Langkawi, we had a chance to stay at Dani Beach Cottage. Yes, I always think of Langkawi as “mystical” – no other island has that impression on me. Maybe it’s all about the Mahsuri legend surrounding it, but every time I gaze at the island from […]

Celebrate the Lunar New Year at ZUAN YUAN, ONE WORLD HOTEL

“Gathered Elegance” is the theme for this year’s lunar new year celebrations at Zuan Yuan Chinese Restaurant in One World Hotel. Aptly chosen – as since the restaurant’s massive makeover in end 2017, “elegant” is but one word to describe the restaurant. So, to welcome the Year of the Swine, why not have a sumptuous […]

This Chinese New Year, have a BLAST FROM THE PAST at RED @ Pullman KLCC

It’s my first time stepping into RED, the Chinese restaurant in Pullman Kuala Lumpur City Centre and like many first-timers here, I’m taken aback (in a good way) by its stunning setup. Its striking black and red theme is like a breath of intense fresh air, quite unlike the traditional oriental deco favoured by many […]
