JOURNEY TO THE RED CENTRE: PART 3

The middle of Australia was everything I thought it would be and more. As an Australian seeing Uluru up close and personal, it was awe inspiring and surprisingly emotional. A landmark I have seen time and time again, yet never did I think I would be standing here looking up at it in person. After

HOW TO MOVE TO A NEW CITY

Nothing ever changes. Everything is always the same. What drives us to move from what we know can stem from a feeling of groundhog day, or an absence of different experiences from the norm. Moving to a new city is not always an easy task since you’re moving away from the the familiar comforts of

JOURNEY TO THE RED CENTRE: PART 2

After four days with friends in cold and cosmopolitan Melbourne, we made our way west towards South Australia; a place that Siu On and I are constantly drawn back to. Adelaide is a city that we could easily see ourselves living in due to its small size and proximity to excellent local produce on its

EP 22: BUNGONIA NATIONAL PARK

As I selectively listen in on the nasally Sydneysider next to me banter about the previous night’s sexual escapade or the latest gossip in a circle of friends

FINDING JAPAN IN SYDNEY

Japan has to be one of my all time favourite destinations for its mixture of traditional Japanese  culture, history and ultra modernness. Since we are doing our best to reign in our overseas travel as we save as much as we can, I’ve gotten pretty creative with sating my wanderlust tendencies and taken to coming

EP 20: LEARNING TO SAIL IN SYDNEY

It’s as close as I’ll ever get to being Captain Jack Sparrow, but I can finally say that I’ve ticked off the bucket list, one of the longest items I’ve had on the list, learning to sail. In between learning the difference between tacking and gybing, we managed to enjoy sailing along the open ocean
