St Paul’s Ruins is possibly one of the most recognisable monuments from Macao that adorn many postcards and where first time visitors to Macao go for their “been there, done that” shot for social media. The façade has seen many iterations since the 17th century – it was first a college, then a church and […]

Last weekend, I joined my friends on this interesting bus tour going around Singapore for a glimpse of famous old films made in the city. Interesting as an idea and we had fun, but it was a little too post modern for our appreciation. We understand the constrains of grants and how this is a […]

While the weather was dreary and cold in the peak of summer at the end of July, the galettes and crepes were amazing as was the seafood we couldn’t get enough of. The husband organised a behind the scenes fisherman tour so we could see the boats’ daily haul coming in and how they sort […]

Despite the cold and dreary weather in Brittany, we trudged out to Port Guilvinec to watch the ships come in with their daily catch and met the fishermen who sorted the fish before it gets organised for export – making it out here in Asia to the Michelin starred restaurants in Hong Kong and Macau.
