Lifestyle // Essential Oil DIYs

I love everything that smells good and fresh! Since moving to my new flat, I have been experimenting with the diverse use of essential oils. I swear, my space has that come hither, homey scent and it’s really difficult to get me to leave the house. Also, because I have vanilla scented candles (mmm) and […]

Photostory: Seoul Searching

Well, we are back! Back from almost losing my mind. It has been an insane couple of months. From cancelled flights to landing at the wrong airport to rebooking a missed flight to the wrong continent (my goodness, it was the wrong hemisphere!) to almost burning a few buildings to the ground. I don’t know […]

End of Summer Reads

As you may have seen from my Goodreads page, I have to read 24 books by the 31st of December 2018! I am about to read all day, every day just to reach my goal! Things started off pretty slowly but I am picking up speed because I finally succumbed to living in the 21st […]

Interview with ANTHILL Fabric Gallery

I might have mentioned that I am all about communities that work together and help each other.

How many times have we thought: the cheaper, […]

Shanghai in 9 Hours

Over my last trip, I learned how to make the most of long layovers. I totally understand how long layover could feel like a schlep to most, especially after a long vacation and all you want to do is to get back home. We made sure that this would be a cheap stopover so we […]

What Can We Do in Cebu?

After a glorious short holiday, I thought it would be useful to share a list of things you could possibly get up to if and when you decide to head on over to Cebu! It took forever for us to plan this trip because there wasn’t much information available online. This is my “help a […]

A Photo Story: The Jeepney Chronicles

Taking a Jeepney is the best way to get around in the Philippines. The history of these is quite interesting (you can have a read here). The Jeepneys were originally US military jeeps left over after World War II but now, they have been modernised and manufactured by various local motor companies. We made sure […]

Singapore in 15 Hours

Fifteen hours sound plentiful when you are talking about layovers but let me tell you, this was the shortest 15 hours yet! We purposefully picked a flight with the longest layover in Singapore so we could leave the airport. Yas! This happened to be with a budget airline Scoot, where you have to pay for everything; […]
