Otaru Throwback

Thought – for a change is to post a colored photo! This is a photo from Otaru in June last year. Nothing special about this photo, just thought that I needed some color views 😀

Trappist Monastery

It has been quite a long while since I last posted on this blog. It has been quite a roller coaster as I was very busy with work (aka finding the dough to fund my ridiculous trips!). Trappist Monastery is one of the attraction in Hakodate. I was expecting to see a lot more but…

Cafe Hunting – Blue Bottle Aoyama

One of the joy in life is to go cafe hunting whenever you are on holiday. This morning I woke up quite late – as I was extremely tired from the major flight screw up on Sunday. I lost a whole day of walking and a seat in first class. So this morning, instead of…

Cremia – The Best Soft Serve in The World

I have eaten many types of ice cream in the past – this is despite family history of diabetes. Not that I could not care less, but sometimes in life we need to have some indulgence. In fact – I have been cutting down my sugar tremendously because of family history. I don’t take sugar…

Blue Bottle Coffee@Tokyo

I am definitely a coffee addict and I have 3 types espresso machine from this site at home to prove it. Looking at the amount coffee that I consume – I do spend a lot of money on coffee. When I was in Japan – I did go to Starbucks almost every single morning because…

Jobless in Japan – Day 8/9 – Nagasaki and Gunkanjima

Day 5 – Jobless in Japan: Exploring Kyoto

This is Day 5 of my jobless trip to Japan. I have been bumming around for 1 week and the withdrawal syndrome is really catching up on me. The typical me will be trying to check on my email every 2.5 seconds or so, but given that I have quit from my current job, I…
