Shenkeng Old Street – a gem on the outskirts of Taipei
A short bus ride from the Taipei Zoo Station lies Shenkeng Old Street – an old street famous for its stinky tofu (a local delicacy that you either love or hate — it’s the latter for me). I’ve always wanted to visit this place but its location makes it pretty inaccessible – it’s not within…
Just a quick list of some great shows!
Circuit breaker, Phase 1, and finally Phase 2. Singapore has evolved so much the past couple of months, and something I’m glad that I had throughout these few months is Netflix. Netflix has been really amazing, and here are some shows that I’d highly recommend to anyone who’s looking for exciting shows to watch. The…
One of those EUREKA moments!
Continuing from my previous post where I introduced Amazin’ Graze’s nut mixes, here’s another article on a similarly amazing Southeast Asian snack brand – Eureka! If you’re a fan of popcorn, you’ve definitely heard of Garrett’s Popcorn from the US where each popped corn is amazingly tasty, fresh and delish. However, the brand Eureka may…
Goodbye, chicken rice ball
A trip to Toa Payoh to buy one of our favourite chicken rice turned out to be a sad occasion. The stall has closed. The owners have retired. We were 29 days late. Good Year Local Hainanese Chicken Rice Ball is no more. I was devastated because it had been a part of my growing…

The vendor was an up and coming Singapore company called Creative Technology. The product was the Sound Blaster.
Click and book airport run
Living near the airport has its pros and cons. While a trip to and from the airport is a breeze, taking a taxi back from the airport is an entirely different experience. Whenever I tell the driver my destination after boarding, the response often is stony black face or worst yet, sarcasm on a couple…
Clicked too fast
Ever had one of those purchases that you regretted immediately after clicking “Buy”? Sadly, I had one of those moments when I let me guard down last month. It was a lazy morning when I was scrolling through Facebook and an ad popped up on a pocket guitar. As a guitar fan, I’m enthralled by…
Why 101 Reasons?
It’s been a long time coming and we’ve finally gotten down to doing this. But, the final push factor was when we were looking for a pair of shoes. Only after an extensive search — trawling the company’s website plus lots more — did we find out that that range is no longer in production.…
