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…

Nara, Japan

Nara is only about 40 minutes away from Osaka by train, and is definitely worth the trip. Famous for their free-roaming deers, Nara Park is only about 10 minutes walk from the station. It is a straight shot and you know you’ve made it when you see the stalls selling deer crackers. Nara Park is…

Kaiyukan – Osaka Aquarium

Growing up in Hong Kong means that when I travel, aquariums rarely make it onto my to-do list. We have Ocean Park and we take these things for granted. As a “been there done that” kind of traveler who sees a sight and does not know what to do with it, being in Osaka posed a small…

Cairns and Brisbane, Australia

First things first, check out the view from my room in Cairns! I love Cairns for how chilled-out it is, and how accessible everything is because it’s so small (unless you’re straying from the tourist area and visiting the residential, but why would you). The first time I went I was alone and honestly, it…

Narita

    I had a full day to spend in Narita, and after catching up on some sleep for half of the day – I went to Aeon Mall with a friend of mine.  Tokyo, and like most places for me is all about eating three meals in an afternoon to make up for all…

Tokyo 2013 – Part 2

Part 2… I actually borrowed a laptop and sat myself down at a coffee shop to finish this post because I know exactly what my productivity levels are like when I’m at home. Go me! I don’t quite know how the ramen craze came to Hong Kong, but I’ve never been a big fan.  I…

Tokyo 2013

I’m so glad you guys loved the posts on Dubai! Blown away by the fact that you’re embracing my lazy-blogging. I can’t believe I went on my second trip of the year in January – and thanks for kicking my butt about not updating. Ladies and gentlemen, after a three-week delay, here comes Tokyo 2013. I…

Hello Dubai! :: Part 2

    Day 2 & 3 I’m going to group days two and three together, since not much really happened :p Day 2 On the second day, my friend had to work on a shuttle flight to Jeddah (I think that’s where she went), so I had the whole morning till late late afternoon to…
