A short recommendation piece on Inlake Hostel in Hangzhou, right on Westlake, a stunning historical site turned into a beautiful, bright and airy zen hostel. I’d consider it more a hotel than a hostel and it’s tastefully put together. Emperor Qin Shi Wang and his entourage stayed here three times (the guest dormitory extension of […]

You may have read my Shanghai Escapades Story in the Singapore Straits Times, or my review of The Middle House for D+A magazine, here’s my round up of the best 5 new Shanghai hotel openings […]

 Apart from plenty of options to eat around Macao, if hitting the casino isn’t in your interest, there are still lots of things to do for entertainment. The Shrekfast (breakfast with Shrek) and the Dreamworks crew has sadly ended its five year run this October – a family activity favourite. Now you can have breakfast […]

Photo: Just your regular weekend in Beijing going to UNESCO sites for a walk, either go out to the Great Wall for a hike with champagne in my backpack and sandwiches or the temple of heaven which still remains one of my favourite places. Lots of local eats close by and a market selling lots […]

So many friends that have come through Macao to visit and surprisingly enjoyed my Junk store exploration adventure. Many asked where I got my vintage treasures in this post where I took my former flatmate and one of my closest friends based between LA and Shanghai (not short of vintage gems) on a mad shopping spree… […]

So, one of the next best thing living in Macao is that we’re just 30 minutes from the border of Zhuhai and about 20 mins to this wonderful furniture wood village in 中山, Zhongshan that sells everything at wholesale cost price made for export and distribution. It’s kind of like a household wonderland with more […]
