TOKYO JOURNAL: ICHIRAN RAMEN

TOKYO JOURNAL: ICHIRAN RAMEN

I have a confession to make that will shock many people. Even though I’ve gone to Japan many times since 2013, I have not tried Ichiran Ramen until this trip. I know, I know. Don’t hold me hostage...
TOKYO JOURNAL: CAPTAIN’S DONUT @ SHIMOKITA-ZAWA

TOKYO JOURNAL: CAPTAIN’S DONUT @ SHIMOKITA-ZAWA

Captain’s Donut is just a two-minute walk from Shimokita-zawa Station. You won’t miss the cute, quirky exterior. Besides, the smell will lead you to it...
TOKYO JOURNAL: NEZU SHRINE

TOKYO JOURNAL: NEZU SHRINE

Visits to Japan are incomplete without paying homage to one of their many temples/shrines. You would definitely have Meiji Jingu or even Sensoji in Asakusa under your radar but have you heard of Nezu Shrine? I first encountered Nezu Jinja – as it’s better known in Japanese – on YouTube and I knew I had...
HONG KONG: AN OBSERVATION

HONG KONG: AN OBSERVATION

Hong Kong is an old-meets-new city. I wouldn’t necessarily say it’s pretty but it has its own special charm. The streets are very crowded; the subway is a constant feeling of being sardine canned...

NISEOULSEARCHING: BUKCHON HANOK VILLAGE (북촌한옥마을)

Bukchon (북촌) is a quaint little neighbourhood in Seoul a stone’s throw away from Samcheong-dong and Insa-dong. It is home to hundreds of traditional Korean houses called hanok (한옥), thus the name Bukchon Hanok Village...
NISEOULSEARCHING: SAMCHEONG-DONG (삼청동)

NISEOULSEARCHING: SAMCHEONG-DONG (삼청동)

If I had to pick just one place in Seoul as my favourite, it would be Samcheong-dong (삼청동). Some people liken it to a small European street in downtown Seoul but there is so much more than meets the eye...
