    Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve

    One of the best places in Singapore for birdwatching, otter-watching and crocodile watching. Yes. Crocodile. Bob, to be exact, as he was named by Neil Humphrey in his book. The mangroves at Sungei Buloh was cleared for prawn farming at one point in time and after abandoned, it became a wonderful pitstop for migratory birds looking for a quick meal and rest on their way down south enroute their migration. But even during non-migratory season, it still makes for a wonderful hike through the reserve, a quiet appreciation of the serenity in the bird hides watching artists sketch the scenery Read more [...]

    IFC Mall

    In a city full of malls, IFC stands out for it’s prime location connected to the Central MTR station (and the in-town check-in service so you can drop off luggage here instead of carrying it to the airport) and overlooking Victoria Harbour. Even if you don’t intent to come here, you will inevitably end up here at some point during your stay in HK just because of its proximity to everything. The shops are expensive international brands, but even if you aren’t looking to buy luxury goods, it is worth a look because of the rooftop garden which has excellent Read more [...]

    Iloilo River Esplanade

    Really cute pathway for joggers, walkers, etc. Visited here my first time when also with family from Iloilo. Really enjoyed the cool breeze alongside the river. Nice time to enjoy in the evening. There was even a Zumba lesson going on for the community. I joined in for a bit, haha. Lots of restaurants, karaoke bar, coffee shops along the way. There is a part of the river called “the boardwalk” where most of the action is. I was told there is good night life but I couldn’t say so for sure since I didn’t stay for that. We stopped Read more [...]

    Tasik Kenyir

    The largest man-made lake in South-east Asia. It is interesting place and great houseboat experience!. We booked Chendana Houseboat for 3D2N. It can fix maximum 30 persons.  Don’t  expect too much yahhh, it is basic accomodation, with ‘okay’ bathroom (4) and huge dorm(4), no air conditioning, no hot water baths. It also has fully equipped kitchen except for the raw ingredients for cooking, washing machine too. But not all time we can use since the electricity through generator. So it only comes on time at  schedule. This houseboat complete with karoake set too. Our group trip was mainly for fishing. Read more [...]

    Ibirapuera Park

    In human terms, city streets are the arteries and veins.  City parks though?  They’re the heart.  In a city of almost incomprehensible size, where finding the “there” can be elusive amidst the concrete density, Ibirapuera Park is a breath of fresh air and the heart of the city.  It’s no surprise that Paulistas (as locals are known) flock here each weekend as it’s seemingly the only place to feel you’ve escaped São Paulo without actually doing so. On a weekend in December – early in Brazil’s summertime – the park was full without feeling so.  The park is frequently compared Read more [...]

    Royal Botanic Gardens

    I discovered the Royal Botanic Gardens completely by accident. It is a definitely a large tract of land in the heart of Sydney’s central business district, adjacent to the Sydney Opera House. I’ve been here a couple of times over the course of my stay in the city. Botanical Gardens and city parks are the quintessential lifeblood of any city. You see a lot of people visiting these type of places for any number of reasons. The Royal Botanic Gardens is no exception. It was nice to be here during my stay in Sydney, often a focus point of finding Read more [...]

    Sydney Harbour Bridge

    So beautiful! Worth a visit in the day and in the evening when the bridge is lit up! Unfortunately I didn’t have time to walk across or do the famous bridge walk, maybe I’ll tackle these the next time I’m in Sydney! This is not a over-the-bridge walk review since I didn’t do it and there is a separate review landmark for that. The bridge is iconic alongside the Sydney Opera House and you can not only walk across normally, over it, but also below it in The Rocks area.  The bridge is a great backdrop for pictures. If you’ve Read more [...]
