Visiting the Purrfect Cat Cafe in Georgetown - Penang, Malaysia

The confessions of an addict… Visiting our third cat cafe in Asia, I think it is safe to say we’re addicted at this point. I’m not sure where we can turn for help but it is rather apparent that we need some. In all seriousness, we jumped at the opportunity to visit the recently opened [...]

Korean Street Food

When it comes to street food in Asia, Korea reigns supreme as the true heavyweight offering up a diverse spread of delectable street snacks that range from sweet to salty and from savory to spicy. Whether you’re in the mood for a small bite – or a huge feast – you’ll certainly find what you’re [...]

48 hours in Singapore

Generally speaking, I’m a proponent of slow travel. Traveling slow allows you to live more like a local as opposed to racing around a city like a tourist; however, with just 48 hours in Singapore we were forced outside of our comfort zone, for a couple of days, and we ended up loving it. The [...]

Eating street food at a Hawker Centre in Singapore

When I lived in South Korea as an English teacher (prior to traveling around other countries in Asia) I thought Korean street food reigned supreme. Although street food in Korea is among the best in Asia (if not the world), it certainly has some stiff competition from the likes of Taiwan, Thailand and Malaysia. Well, [...]

Balinese fire dance performance

When it comes to islands worth visiting in Southeast Asia, few can compete with the allure of Bali; however, if you’re expecting a Utopian pristine paradise, as often is depicted in the movies and popular culture, you’ll be in for a rude awakening. Bali is what it is – unicorns and warts alike. Although there [...]

Hiking a volcano - Mount Batur - for sunrise in Bali, Indonesia

It was there that we met our [...]

Star Ferry boat ride from Kowloon to Hong Kong Island

One of the first things that comes to mind when I think of Hong Kong is the expansive public transportation system of the city. There are few cities in the world that offer as many diverse and affordable options of getting around. Aside from just taxis one can consider getting around by bus, coach, ferry, [...]

Tea at the Peninsula Hotel in Hong Kong

Waiting.  There are few things in life I despise more than having to stand in line to wait for something.  Over the years I’ve developed a system of distracting myself better (with an ipod or kindle, etc) and feeling less anxious about standing in line to receive some form of service; however, may patience still [...]

Visiting Hong Kong Park and taking part in a Tea Ceremony

Aside from Bangkok, I can’t think of a city I’ve visited more often in Asia than Hong Kong. As a hub to get around the rest of Asia and a wonderful city to explore on its own, I’ve been spoiled by great weather every visit. However, upon arriving with Audrey we experienced stormy conditions and [...]

Visiting a cat cafe in Bangkok, Thailand to play and pet cute cats

Typically, when I revisit a place I often have fond memories and the anticipation of seeing it again, through wiser eyes, has a certain appeal.  However, Ubud Monkey Forest is not a stroll down warm and fuzzy memory lane ;) When I first visited Bali, back in 2008, I went to Monkey Forest as a [...]
