We all wonder when can we ever travel again. Hong Kong is dealing with its third wave of Covid19 cases with challenges in tracing its source and unfortunately so many asymptomatic cases. I’ve been prudent and staying indoors, partly because of the sweltering summer heat and also avoiding risks of catching Covid with a compromised […]

I’m so proud of my friend Samaira for getting the show on the road. She’s one of the best home cooks I know and a wealth of information for Indian cuisine. Her mum used to run a Dabbawala (tiffin meals) business in Bombay and naturally she grew up in the kitchen. Taking the name from […]

I filed this story pre-Covid19 madness and look forward to going back to Beijing sometime soon. Here are 9 of the best tours I filed for Culture Trip to get to know the Capital city where I have plenty of fond memories having lived there for 5 years.

This has got to be one of my favourite cities and I’ve tried to pitch several articles for the past year since my first trip there in January 2019 – that feels like a lifetime ago with Covid19 and the temporary halt on everyone’s lives. Instead of buying more time for my next pitches in […]

I took a sidecar feng shui tour with Singapore Sidecars last year when I stayed at the Capella Singapore.

I worked on this commissioned piece for Culture Trip, part of their content partnership with the Macao Tourism Board MGTO. All of the spots are some of my favourite places when I lived there for 4.5 years.

Travelling to the Otago Peninsula on New Zealand’s South Island should be on everyone’s travel list. There’s plenty to do: taking in nature, outdoor adventures and the local dining scene to touring local sights. Naturally, for many, food plays an important part in the trip. Check out these options of casual and upscale restaurants, fancy […]

We stayed at Suvretta House earlier this year in January for the St Moritz Gourmet Festival that takes place every winter, and concluded with a fabulous party at Badrutt Palace. St Moritz is a curious little place that pretty much comes alive for two seasons – the winter and the summer. It’s also the city […]

I LOVED Lisbon and often think about how nice it would be to have a summer house there, or to dream of retirement where you can get amazing food, drinks, culture,art and design without breaking the bank. My travel story on Lisbon for Singapore’s national broadsheet The Straits Times. It’s behind a paywall, so text below. […]
