Uji River. Any picture is better with sakura in it. Uji, Japan. April 2013.

If you eat enough Japanese snacks and candy, you must have came across this town’s name already. Since there are tons of green tea flavored snacks said to be using green tea from Uji. So after spending a few hours at the Fushimi Inari Shine in the morning, I hopped on the local train to spend my afternoon in the small town of Uji and ate the most awesome green tea ice-cream ever.  « Read the rest of this entry »


A little story at Dubai airport

August 26, 2012 § 6 Comments

I traded New York City with sweets and a silver box in Dubai. Aug 2012.

Here is a little story to tell, before I start the long process of blogging my recent trip to Europe covering Munich, Salzburg and Barcelona.

4 years ago, when I moved out of the Unites States, it wasn’t the happiest moment of my life. I always try to hold on to something from the live I have in New York. So I put a 50 USD bill in my wallets and walk around Hong Kong with me. Even I know it won’t have much use in here, and I risk losing it. However It did make me happy whenever I open up my purse and see that 50 USD I earned in New York, it brought out lots of fond memory. « Read the rest of this entry »

B&B experience in Geneva *New York*

July 16, 2012 § Leave a comment

I’d trade a generic hotel stay for a night in this homey B&B in a heart beat!

Unless you’re paying over 100 Euro per night, a hotel experience is very likely to be……let’s say not special. Even paying with that price, you might still have to stay with some boringly tired looking hotel room that screams “renovations”. How to stretch your money on the road? One of the things I do is to stay at Bed & Breakfast. (ok, I also do hostels and short term apartments rental, but that’s for another story)

Entrance plate of Mengjia Longsha Temple in Taipei, Taiwan. Jun 6, 2011.

Before leaving Taipei, I had a few hours to do some last minute sight seeing. Mengjia Longsha Temple was he perfect choice for me, as it was easy to get to by metro, and I was curious to see how different this Chinese temple was, compare to those I saw everyday back home. « Read the rest of this entry »

Summer trip

June 9, 2012 § 4 Comments

Apparently it’s time for a summer trip! Although work has been busy for the past two months, I managed to find the time and plan for my up-coming trip. Spain is never really on the top of my list of country to visit. However, as a friend of mine is getting married in Alcoy (Spain), and I’m invited. Therefore, this country just bumped herself up to my next-to-visit! « Read the rest of this entry »

I love the food in Copenhagen

March 10, 2012 § 8 Comments

Just love how they put the zucchini on top like a sculpture. Nyhavn, Copenhagen. Dec 26, 2011.

The above picture is exactly the reason I put Copenhagen into my trip: Food. You just gotta love the Danish chefs who care and realized the traditional Danish cuisine needed a face lift. The result is eating fresh and delicious food. When I was researching online, I saw lots of smorrebrod with shrimps, fish roe, salmon and zucchini. I pretty much glued my face to my screen, drooling. So I thought, Copenhagen was an expensive city, let me put it as my last destination, and spend whatever I got left in my wallet and spend it on food, guilt free.
