Yum(mee) Middle Road Pork Ribs Prawn Noodles

Don’t you just love it when you chance upon an eatery, only finding out that it is actually a pretty famous place with wonderful food? After exchanging foreign currency at Mustafa’s Foreign Exchange (one of the better money changers in Singapore), I was about to head to City Square (the nearest mall there) for a […]

Earning credits one survey at a time!

Have you ever googled ways to earn money by doing surveys? I’ve personally done it myself, but I’ve never really succeeded in building my survey bank in order to get cash-outs. A friend of mine recently recommended Google Opinion Rewards which is rather interesting. Upon downloading the application, you’ll be asked to answer some simple […]

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 […]

Festive snacks that come and go!

Introducing to you… a seasonal product that is off the shelves at the moment, but I believe will come back (and should come back!).

Savour panoramic views of Switzerland via the Golden Pass Line

After our stay in Grindelwald, we departed for Montreux via the Golden Pass Line route which was a truly unique experience. Having taken many train rides across Switzerland over the first few days of our trip, I did not really know what to expect from “yet another train ride”.  The route we took was from […]

Why I like my Google Chromecast

With the increasing trend of utilising subscription-based streaming services, including Spotify and Netflix, I realised that our reliance on it is also because we have technology (devices) that truly support it at home. One such technology which was once less-utilised, the Google Chromecast, is something I’d like to talk about today as it is a […]

Grindelwald – Mount First instead of Jungfrau?

Following my previous post on the snippets on Grindelwald, here’s more on Mount First! We made the decision to head up Mount First instead of Jungfrau. Now, this might be of interest to you as most people tend to want to head up to Jungfrau, one of the main summits of the Alps.  Here are […]

Snippets of Grindelwald

After Zurich and Liechtenstein, we headed off to Grindelwald, a holiday town that sits within the Jungfrau region.

A Kindle Paperwhite 4 really makes reading pleasant

I’ve had the Kindle Paperwhite 4 for a couple of weeks now – 6 weeks to be exact – and I have to say that I really like it! Having read eBooks on multiple platforms – iPad, iPad mini, iPhone and my current OnePlus 6T mobile phone – I did not realize till I switched […]

Getting to Liechtenstein from Zurich

Just to the east of Switzerland lies the country of Liechtenstein. This small country has a population of just under 40,000 citizens and is one of the world’s richest countries per capita! On a recent trip to Switzerland, my family and I decided to take a trip to Liechtenstein’s – Vaduz, but honestly speaking, there […]

Swiss Travel Pass – The One-Stop Pass You'll Need!

Sugar and Spice (and everything nice)

Taiwan’s Yu Jan Shin’s butter pastry has been our go-to pastry for the past few years, but another crowd favourite that we love is Sugar and Spice’s nougats. Founded in Taichung in 1996, Sugar and Spice is known for their range of Taiwanese snacks and pastries. From pineapple cakes to tarts, cakes, chocolate and snacks, […]

What I like […]

Growing up as a kid, I’ve built many fond memories while playing physical board and card games.

However, in recent years, many have turned to playing games […]

Travel YouTubers in the Spotlight!

Ever travelled and wondered where to start searching for content to plan your trip? In many of my other posts, I’ve often discussed travel and booking platforms, including tips which I gather from other traveller’s itineraries. However, there is a platform that I often look at – the good ol’ YouTube. Content creators have made […]

Hunting for a notebook

What do you look out for when you’re looking for a new notebook computer? Though I’m quite at home with technology and am an avid follower of the scene, this question still caused me to stop and think for a bit. What exactly was I looking for? Taking a step back, I began with why […]

VAT refund made easy in Italy

Singaporeans spend around €1 billion in Europe annually but only 55 – 65% of tax refunds are generally received by tourists. However, this percentage can now be increased to up to 85% with the introduction of the UTU Direct application and service, a product of Singapore-based UTU, the only PCI certified VAT Refund operator in […]

End of support for Adobe Acrobat and Reader 2015

It used to be that when we buy something, we own it for life and use it for as long as the thing works. Think television, radio, refrigerator, hair dryer, and car. But technology is not only changing our life but the way we own products. Adobe today announced that support for Adobe Acrobat 2015 […]
