One Day in Ipoh, Malaysia

As part of our short adventure in KL, we reserve one of the days for a trip to Ipoh. I had heard many good things about the food in Ipoh, and since Sam’s mom calls it her home, we consulted her list of restaurants to check out. How to Get There & Around It’s worth…

What to Eat and Do in KL, Malaysia

I’ve been to KL three or four times before, but only a couple of days each time. This meant that I only ever saw the inside of shopping malls and a few touristy destinations like the Petronas Towers and the aquarium. A three-day trip to KL over the Easter long weekend was our chance to properly…

What To Eat in Hobart, Tasmania

The food in Tasmania is arguably the best in the country. With incredible produce at their fingertips, chefs are free to experiment with only the finest, freshest ingredients. After collating a list of recommended restaurants, cafes, and markets, I shortlisted my favorites, and started making bookings. Bookings are essential at most of the restaurants I’ve…

What To Do in Hobart, Tasmania

We spent most of our four days in Hobart at restaurants, but in between meals there were a few activities and fun stuff we explored. The Tassie capital is so small, you can pretty much walk anywhere within 15 minutes. There’s a town feel to it, more than a city feel. And at night it’s deathly…

What To Eat and Do in Jakarta

I lived in Jakarta for ten years, and graduated from high school there. Most of my days were taken up by homework or rehearsal for the school’s dance team, but every Friday we’d go to the mall and watch a movie. There’s not much else to do there, to be honest, except to eat delicious, delicious food….

Eating and Exploring in Maui

If you like beaches and nature, then Maui is the island for you. There’s a small beach town feel compared to Honolulu. And what’s not to love about waterfalls, black sand beaches and whale watching? On the food side of things, it didn’t quite compare to Honolulu, but that didn’t deter us from enjoying many great meals….

Eating and Exploring in Honolulu

What’s awesome about Hawaii is that you get a really good mix of beach life, city life and nature. It’s not often that you can get all three on your travels (although funnily Sydney probably comes close). Shopping one day, hiking another day, and a yoga jungle tour the next – I had really a…

Bali: Island of the Gods, Island of My Life

I’ve been traveling to Bali for as long as I can remember. If I were to hazard a guess, at least 20 times. In the 80s when I was only a few years old, my parents and I spent our summers (German summers, not Australian summers) in Indonesia, and we always made a stop in Bali….

Fiji: Food and Fun in the Sun

Happy New Year, friends! Apologies about the blog hiatus. I was busy getting some sun in Fiji for my 30th birthday and Christmas. I spent 11 days there, but I think I could have cut it short a few days. Seven days is plenty. Fiji is a tropical paradise. Less than four hours away from…
