Dear Aunt Vicky, let me tell you the story of my friend Koreena. She left Adelaide for Melbourne 1 year ago in search of greener pastures. But she keeps coming back. Well firstly, because of the wines. Secondly, because of the wines. No, she’s not an alcoholic. Just a wine enthusiast. Visiting wineries is comparable […]
My Argentinian friend and Volleyball teammate, Naomi Morandi (@naomi.morandi), takes over my kitchen to make these delicious vegetarian Argentinian empanadas. You read it right — they are vegetarian! Empanadas are usually made with meat, but this healthy variation makes it more exciting: lots of cheese, onion, mushroom, and more cheese. View this post on Instagram […]

FOODIE TEST! I love feeding my friends. But before I indulge them, unfortunately, they need to do my Ultimate Foodie Challenge first. What’s a #FOODIETEST? They have to guess the names of the SNACKS I bought from various grocery shops in Adelaide, South Australia and they have to tell me the COUNTRIES where they originated […]
Are you good at guessing the names of international snacks and determining where are they originally from, even with your eyes closed? I recently challenged my foodie friends in Adelaide to test their knowledge and taste buds on various snacks (ranging from noodles to chips) that they might be unfamiliar with, but are apparently easily […]

Do you know that Australians call “afternoon” as “arvo,” “football” as “footy,” and “barbecue” as “barbie”? If you do, then good on ‘ya mate! But what about these words: “woop woop,” “bogan,” and “sheila”? Do you know what they stand for? I bet you “defo” had a hard time. I recently visited one of the […]

Over the weekend, we checked in at the 42-tent suite property of The Canopi in Bintan, Indonesia. We’ll share our hotel review very soon. In the meantime, do enjoy our quick video tour of the resort.
Whenever I travel, I love taking photos as well as videos. I usually take time in each place to admire the beauty of the surroundings with my very own eyes, then eventually my mind starts wearing a moviemake’s hat: what can I capture here–at this very moment–so that when I head back home, I’ll be able to share the […]
Contemporary — a dance style I’m not particularly used to but have been fascinated with for the longest time. Being exposed to only basic hiphop routines in the past year, leg extensions, extended flowing movements, and even facial expressions while dancing are surprisingly a little bit gawky for me. Nonetheless, it’s something I am keen to plausibly get used to. Contemporary […]
I read somewhere in a book: “Don’t you think it’s beautiful to go somewhere where you don’t know a single soul?” Now, I ask the same question to myself. We always fear the unknown. We fear being alone. We fear what we don’t understand. Bearing all these fears with me, I recently went on a […]

We went pub crawling in Singapore with my friend who recently got married. Our primary objective was for all of us to get drunk, but in the end, we got really, really full instead. What was supposed to be a “bar hopping” activity turned out to be a “fries hopping” event. Check out what I mean […]
How did the Facebook page Classic Pare® Titos and Titas of Manila rapidly amass a million zealous following in the last couple of months? In this social era where the 80s and 90s babies are overshadowed by so-called millennials, it is everyone’s glorious past that uninhibitedly binds the new generation of titos (uncles) and titas (aunties) to form such a wistful […]
