Jonker Street Night Market

Melaka Jonker Street Night Market is One of the Best Night Markets in Asia (Day 1 Part 2)

I was surprised that I actually love Melaka’s Jonker Street Night Market, which is likely the most touristy place in Melaka. Those who know my traveling style would know how much I loathe overly-touristy places. So, what made Jonker Street Night Market so special? It’s all about good food, reasonable pricing, vibrant ambiance and beautiful historical buildings! Let me bring you through Jonker Street, the way I’d experienced it.

Taiwan Hotel Price New Year Period - horizontal

A Rude Shock: Book Hotels Early if Traveling to Major Taiwan Cities over the New Year (Plus AsterSpring-Dermalogica Workshop)

I totally switched off from social media and blogging over the weekends because I’d received a rude shock – Taipei and Taichung hotels are up to five times more expensive during New Year’s Eve and New Year 2019. At time of writing (a full seven weeks prior to New Year 2019), many good accommodations are already fully booked. Even Airbnb units that often priced themselves low at $20 to $40 also inflated the price such that a …

Singapore Airbnb Woodlands

My First Airbnb Stay in Singapore, Woodlands turned out to be a horrible mistake

Taiwan Itinerary for Solo Traveler Coupon (40off)

Next Trip Booked – TAIWAN, here I come again. Woohoo! (Plus First Airbnb Stay in Singapore)

Hey there, How’s your weekend been? I just came back from a Staycation in Singapore and sadly, it was one horrible experience. That Airbnb stay affected my mood so much I actually couldn’t sleep at all on their comfy and luxurious mattress. And I couldn’t write for a few days even though my intention was to do full-scale writing at the ‘serene’ retreat. Sadly, this bad Airbnb example had to come from my country. But I …

Melaka Weekend Getaway

Melaka 3D2N Weekend Getaway – Getting to Melaka, Silverscape Residences & Food Around Elements Mall (Day 1)

As usual, we were feeling so bored in tiny Singapore that we decided on a whim to go for a Weekend Getaway to Melaka. This is my second visit to the historical Malaysia town that is located about 3.5 hours’ drive from Singapore. I thought it’ll be a relaxing trip because I’d been there, done that (erm about a decade ago). Furthermore, Melaka isn’t really known as a place with many things to do. I thought …
