Diving with the Calibre de Cartier Diver Watch

Diving with the Calibre de Cartier Diver Watch

Two weeks or so ago, I was treated to a most unique experience, one that was quite life- changing in fact. I was flown by the Cartier team to Cebu and we were driven 3 hours to a beautiful town called Oslob, where we had the opportunity to swim with magnificent whale sharks in open water,...
A Local Tourist in Manila!

A Local Tourist in Manila!

Nooo, I have not yet abandoned this blog! But boooo it has been 8 days! This has been the longest I’ve gone without writing! *Kicks self* Ok, so the blog posts may have become few and far between, but I’m still alive and well, and the instagram posts are coming along swimmingly I have actually...
Food & Travel: Giando in Hong Kong

Food & Travel: Giando in Hong Kong

Yes, I am back in the city that makes everyone feel unproductive enough, Hong Kong! Hahaha, it’s true– every single time that I am in Hong Kong, I feel like I have to rush, rush, rush. Everyone seems to be rushing to go somewhere. It came to a point when even I found myself running...

Travelog Singapore: First Stop, Violet Oon’s Kitchen

It was an honor for me to have been invited by the Singapore Tourism Board to visit the Lion City. And while it is not my first time to visit this beautiful city, the activities the STB had lined up for me are all things that I have never done or places I have never...

Travelog: Tokyo Fun

Apologies that I have not updated the blog for two days– every night we come back from our day trip has left me so tired! In the past two days after my last post, we’ve been to Asakusa temple, Sanrio Puro Land, and Lego Land in Odaiba (Odaiba was so beautiful at night by the...

Travelog: My Beef with Kobe, then Nara

Not literally because I don’t really have any beef with Kobe– although it must be said that Kobe is really known for beef! But there are many more things about Kobe that I love so let me already enumerate them through images. Our first stop was at the Hakutsuru Sake factory.   They had this...

Travelog: Temples in Kyoto

We headed out rather early this morning (it never ceases to amaze me that I can actually get out of bed for breakfast when I’m on holiday– meanwhile waking up for breakfast is an almost non-existent concept when I’m working haha). It was traffic on the freeway to Kyoto presumably because of the rain, but...

Mandarin Oriental, Manila’s Chinese New Year Party!!

February is really filled with fun events and I look forward to 1 of them– the Mandarin Oriental, Manila’s Chinese New Year event!  I had earlier missed the press lunch for the event which will be held on February 9 and was unable to listen in on Master Chao’s prediction excerpts for the upcoming Year...

Mandarin Oriental Manila’s Sensational Singapore Food Fest

I normally don’t look forward to Mondays, but yesterday was a very special Monday because it was the official start of Mandarin Oriental’s Sensational Singapore Food Fest. I was guaranteed to have excellent food, and had a wonderfully entertaining company for lunch! Also had the pleasure of sitting across from architect Chito Antonio, who is...

Moet et Chandon at Paparazzi

It has been awhile since I last wrote a thorough post about food, so I think the Moet et Chandon dinner at Paparazzi, Edsa Shangri-la Hotel is just perfect and oh- so- timely! I had come in rather late but luckily not late enough because the dinner began immediately after I had sat down (thank...

Food Blog: In Hong Kong, it’s The Duck!

You cannot not eat duck if you are in Hong Kong. If there was a reason why I’d fly to Hong Kong on a whim (when I have enough free airline miles), I’d definitely do it for the duck. I was in between meals when it was decided that Yung Kee on Wellington Street, Central...

First Night of the H Artistry Moet Hennessy Tour, Kuala Lumpur

After we had checked into our hotel and had freshened up a bit, the H Artistry team headed to Circus at the Pavillion for dinner. The one thing I had never forgotten about Kuala Lumpur was the food. The quality has always been consistently good wherever we went to eat. At Circus, Lifestyle Asia’s Cheryl...
