When you hear people talk about Coney Island, first thing that comes to mind is amusement park – rides, cotton candy, flavored soda and character balloons.  On the contrary, Singapore’s very own Coney Island, located in the northeastern coast, is a quiet nature park.

Garden of the Morning Calm – Gapyeong, South Korea

Whenever I reminisce our previous trip to South Korea, the first place that comes to mind is Garden of the Morning Calm. This place is not initially in our itinerary as we thought it’s just garden with the usual flowers and nothing extra ordinary.

Everything With Fries – Singapore

What could’ve been a better side for grilled, fried and baked dishes? For me, nothing beats good old fries – whatever form, shape, size and name it’s called. It always makes my meal more appetizing and filling (for sure! calories! carbs!). // read more

A very entertaining way to ease tired and aching feet after a full day of  strolling Sentosa Island is to watch Wings of Time. For seven years it was Songs of the Sea on the same stage. It has a theater seating along the shore of Siloso beach which makes the ambiance more relaxing.. // read more
