A Garden like No Others ~ Gardens By the Bay – Cloud Dome [Part 1]

Yes, there are many gardens in the world. Gardens with nice themes, beautiful flowers, historic relevance even nice accompanying weather. But there would be nothing like this in the world that can only be found on the little red dot on the map, called Singapore. Singapore … a humid and hot country all year round, maybe wet sometimes but still humid all the same. Small country, but nevertheless, after the visit to Gardens by the Bay, I am almost certain that the beautiful sights in this garden will keep you going and going and going … and until you feel […]

Shirahama – The Resort Town south of Wakayama

Shirahama is a onsen-resort town by the south coast of Wakayama. By train, it would take roughly 1hour 30min to reach from Wakayama as I don’t remember there being any express or rapid-express train for stops into the countryside, therefore the train stops at every stop until Shirahama station … and it does feel really long. Looking back on the trip made to Shirahama, I really do feel that 2 days would be a good enough time to explore this resort town, which I only had about 3/4 day then. So I couldn’t really explore this place to satisfaction having […]

Shiroi Koibito Park (白い恋人) – Origins of one of the Best Chocolate Cookie ever from Hokkaido

It is probably one of the best chocolate cookies ever made, ever tasted. All my children, nephews, even my working colleagues and friends know this packaging, this name by 白い恋人. In case one is still not aware of how it looks like, check out the photo below, hopefully it could jolt your taste buds into an over-run 🙂 My kiddos were entirely fascinated to be able to visit these cookies’ place of origin, whereas for me … well … due to time constraints, I had to give the Sapporo Beer Museum a miss … no big miss though since I […]

Monkey Mountain @ Arashiyama

Yes, that is the monkey park located at Mt. Arashiyama, about 15min walk from Torroko Saga Station, past Togetsukyo Bridge to the “World of the Monkeys”. While it is unfortunate that I have been as close as 1.2km to this amazing place, I didn’t set foot on it :/  … What can I say lol, just don’t make my mistake hahaha! And most of all, I would like to thank Golden Diamond for allowing me to re-blog her article so that others visiting Arashiyama for the natural beauty there, won’t miss out this treasure among others. They will be looking at […]

Osaka Minoo Park

Minoo Park in Osaka is a MUST GO !!! Though one must be prepared for about an hour walk from start till end with the end point climax as the 33m tall Minoo Waterfall! This should hardly pose any problems to abled adults, but for those with children, ice-cream at the end point could be quite a motivation for them 😛 The Best Time to go should be Autumn as you can see from the photos of the exceptional autumn colors that are so mesmerizing and  picture-perfect. The park can be easily reached by train via Hankyu Minoo Line to Minoo Station. If […]
