10 Days of Dining Experiences at Unbeatable Prices for China Restaurant Week

When I was still in Montreal, we use to have an annual restaurant week that allowed great restaurants to show off their latest creations to new customers and allowed diners to experience new restaurants that they’ve been meaning to check off their lists, or often never even heard of before. I was thoroughly enthused when […]

The Waibaidu Bridge – A Longstanding Heritage to Old Shanghai

When in Shanghai, one must check out the  Waibaidu Bridge ( 外白渡桥) at the foot of the Suzhou Creek. This bridge, also referred to as the Garden Bridge in Shanghai, is not only the first all-steel bridge in China but also the oldest surviving bridge of its kind. With its location adjacent to the bund, it’s only […]

A Formal Introduction

So a few weeks ago I jumped straight into my first blog posts on this site completely forgetting to introduce myself to my internet readers. How rude of me, so let’s fix that now.

New Years Eve at the Jing-An Shangri-la in Shanghai

Everything in Singapore is at a convenient distance, mostly due to the size of this little “country” which extends about 41km […]

Thailand: Land of smiles

Thailand: Land of smiles; cheap food and crazy tuk-tuks After my excited time in Tokyo, and about 51/2 hour flight I was now at the very sweet looking Suvarnabhumi Airport and its about midnight. After dodging the sketchy taxi services and ‘limousines’ offering their services (these are everywhere in Thailand btw, so if you’re there […]

The trip starts right at the Akihabara station, where you come out to Akiba City; a glorious monstrosity on 6 floors with everything electronic you can think […]
