You Don’t Know Indian Food Until You’ve Had The Real Thing!

During the 5 days I was in Mumbai for a work trip, I managed to try many of the delicious dishes that the country had to offer. The breakfast at the hotel was just amazing, the free lunch at our office was pure homemade goodness, and the restaurants at the hotel that specialised in dishes… Continue reading You Don’t Know Indian Food Until You’ve Had The Real Thing!

All Over Taipei

After writing on food and some sights in Taipei, let’s move on to the other places we visited. We stayed at the Da’an district and found several gems hidden in the area.   Being fans of Cony and Brown we were excited to visit the Line shop. It was filled with cute Line friends merchandise.… Continue reading All Over Taipei

A Different Kind Of Theatre

Yesterday I watched a performance of As You Like It mounted by The Handlebards and there were several things about the whole experience which made it unique and very enjoyable. The Setting Northumberlandia was the lovely venue for the play. It’s known as the Lady of the North and if you look at it from above it’s… Continue reading A Different Kind Of Theatre

Hiking up Elephant Mountain

For our last day in Taipei we decided to go up Elephant Mountain which, many say, provides one of the most amazing city views. The climb up was a bit tough for me because stairs are my archenemy! If you’re  fit they say you can finish the climb in about twenty minutes. With several water… Continue reading Hiking up Elephant Mountain

The Shopping District of Ximending

It’s easy to get caught up in everything that you can see in Ximending: the food, shopping, sights, and if you’re lucky like us, a film shoot. I now believe it was for The Teenage Psychic and I realized that a few days after, when I discovered the show back home in Manila! How serendipitous! I… Continue reading The Shopping District of Ximending
