When I was still working at the corporate office for Four Seasons, this was the newly acquired property in the French Riveria that everyone was really excited about.  I am grateful I got to visit and have lunch at La Veranda. We made a day trip down from Monaco, a 20minutes drive down the coast […]

I am so late with posts. I’ve gone and returned from France twice now and didn’t get down to writing about Jamin. Late last year, we had lunch at this wonderful restaurant helmed by chef Hervé Rodriguez. It’s also the original location of the first restaurant of the late chef Joel Robuchon. He opened Jamin in 1981 […]

My story, a double page spread was out in yesterday’s Straits Times, it’s behind a paywall so I’m sharing it here as I always believed travel tips and info are best shared to enhance other people’s trips and experiences. All the photos were taken by me except the Starbucks Roastery and Bvlgari hotel’s pool.   […]

After living in Macao for over 4.5 years, I have to say that Morpheus hotel is the only casino hotel that doesn’t make me feel like I’m in Macao. I could be anywhere – Barcelona, Singapore, London. You feel like you’re anywhere but Macao. View this post on Instagram Perspectives. Riding the glass capsule elevator […]

I had a couple of days after Vipassana meditation camp in Kyoto to explore the city. There are plenty of expert Japanese travel guides and fantastic list of things to eat/see/do, but I didn’t get caught up in the FOMO (fear of missing out) in a frantic rush to get through list of places and activities […]

I was in Stockholm in February for Design Week and absolutely loved the city. The tourism board site provides super useful tips on how to navigate the city and they do a fab job on instagram. Some of my favourite places were: Fotografiska museum Love that suggestive sculpture right outside. 2. Old Town Gamla Stan 3. […]

We didn’t make reservation in advance at the now three Michelin starred Frantzen in Stockholm. Even chef connections when the husband rang chef Bjorn Frantzen, he didn’t have a table, but booked me in for The Flying Elk, their brasserie instead. I took the degustation menu and it was fantastic. I love the Frantzen’s Kitchen […]

I wrote about L’Assiette for Hong Kong Tatler Dining, on best spots to dine in Paris. I still think about those escargots I had in December. There’s tomato coulis at the depths of the little vessel. Buttery, garlicky topped with a well buttered crouton. The popular items are the hare and paté en croute, but […]

I wasn’t aware that the building opened end of 2016, it still looks incredibly new and foot traffic was still relatively light over the recent Shenzhen Design week. Incredibly high ceilings make the exhibition space vast. Possibly the absence of columns also makes for an airy spacey feel one commonly associates with airports. The taxi […]
