When you hear Dijon, it brings to mind the mustard…and rightfully so. You mustn’t leave the city without a jar of its popular condiment. But a walk around the city leads to many more lovely discoveries. The atmosphere is quite laid-back too, which was perfect for us since we had been to Paris, Brugges, and… Continue reading Dijon

South Korea

Seoul Food

The first time I visited Korea I went with my friend Mark back in 2013 ( We crammed an itinerary that included two cities (Seoul and Busan) and an island (Jeju) into ten days. That’s why when I got the chance to go back to Seoul after six years, I was looking forward to knowing… Continue reading Seoul Food


Ubud Center

After relaxing at a very chilled pace in Sanur, we headed to the more popular Balinese tourist mecca that is Ubud. Ubud center is definitely busier and bustling with more activity. By just walking around you’ll find that you’re not going to run out of things and places to explore. Our Airbnb was actually a… Continue reading Ubud Center


Nusa Lembongan and Nusa Ceningan

Nusa Lembongan We just had to do an island tour in Bali and our first choice was Nusa Lembongan due to its proximity to Sanur, our base upon arrival. We left close to midday and didn’t have a lot of time but still had fun doing a bit of exploring. The beach already looked so… Continue reading Nusa Lembongan and Nusa Ceningan



Our introduction to Bali was the sleepy coastal town of Sanur. Our mornings started with a lovely buffet-style breakfast prepared by our Airbnb host Dewi. She’s very conscious about cooking healthy food that is still true to Indonesian/Balinese flavors. She varied the selection everyday and we always looked forward to her dishes. We chose to… Continue reading Sanur


The Things We Ate (Part 1 Burgundy, France)

Where do I even begin with this topic? We had so many excellent meals and treats in Burgundy that there’s no other way to deal with this subject but to just write as I remember things. I’ll probably have a part two on this so watch out for more. But for now if you’ve got… Continue reading The Things We Ate (Part 1 Burgundy, France)


Day Trip To Beaune And Rochepot

We started out the day with a trip to Beaune, hoping to get a taste of what Arnaud claims is the “best croissant in the world”. But when we got there the bakery was nowhere to be found. 😦 We didn’t have to fret though! A lot was still in store for us. We entered… Continue reading Day Trip To Beaune And Rochepot


A Little Hike at Combe Lavaux

Arnaud and I had a spot for a little hike in our holiday schedule so we went to the Réserve Naturelle de la Combe Lavaux. This reserve holds several hiking trails with varying degrees of difficulty so if you’re not a serious hiker you don’t have to worry at all. We even saw a family… Continue reading A Little Hike at Combe Lavaux


Let’s Go To The Market (Baguio City Edition)

It’s been about a decade since I last set foot in Baguio so I no longer knew what to expect. Over the years people have been saying that it’s become too crowded and the traffic too heavy that I never really made plans to go visit. This year though, a friend was getting married in… Continue reading Let’s Go To The Market (Baguio City Edition)
