Things To Do in Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon), Vietnam

Check out my new video from my trip to Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon), Vietnam!

ChinChin Bar, Ho Chi Minh City Vietnam

On the last night of my weekend trip to Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon), Vietnam, I was walking around District 1, close to the Bitexco Tower looking for a place to have some local dinner. It was one of those nights where you’ve run out of things to do, and you’re still full from the previous…

Melbourne Brunch Spots: Hash Specialty Coffee

Depending on whether you follow my Instagram (it’s @RachiePn by the way), you may or may not know that I snuck off to one of my favorite places about a month ago to Melbourne, Australia. It was a very short but fulfilling trip. Even my flight there was amazing: 777-300ER, PEY bulkhead with only one other…

Old Hong Kong: Tai O Fishing Village

Weekend Taipei Trip

Sometimes (all the time) work just gets too crazy and you get really desperate to GTFO. Well I didn’t have the balls to actually walk away from my life so a friend and I went to Taipei for a weekend. I left work 2 hours early on a Friday (with permission, thanks for checking), and…

Beef & Liberty, Hong Kong

I suggested Beef & Liberty for my friend’s birthday dinner, without knowing that they have a roof top! I fell in love with the roof top garden as soon as we got there: couches, lamps, foosball table, huge plants (didn’t find out if they were real), and everything that looks urban with a slight touch of…
