Rub shoulders with our stars at Madame Tussauds HK

Madame Tussauds Hong Kong Wax Museum is one of the most famous attractions located of the top of The Peak. Even if you have been to other Madame Tussauds museum around the world, this is still a must-see especially so for Asian visitors as the characters in this museum are contextualized for Asia e.g. Asian leaders and entertainers. If you are a fan of Hong Kong movies and songs, chances are you will find your favorite singers and actors here – perfect opportunity to literally rub shoulders with them.

Sacred healing springs of Tirta Empul Temple

After our terrifying motorbike experience in south of Bali, Olivier and I are now a little bit shaken up to hire another motorbike for our next gallivanting. Of course, there are other options such as joining group tours or hiring a car for the day but gosh, our wallets will then have the nightmares! Luckily, our graceful host offered his new motorbike for cheap rental and guaranteed us that the traffic wouldn’t be as horrible as in Kuta. Imagine our relief! Our itchy feet would be out exploring far after all! 🙂

A slice of luxury at Courtyard by Marriott Bali Seminyak Resort

Phew, let me just say that commuting around Bali is a pain in the back, literally and figuratively. And, this is coming from a girl who lives in Cebu City, Philippines – dubbed as the worst city to drive in according to Waze Traffic App. Of course, we had an idea of how ugly it can be to drive around Bali when we motorbiked to Uluwatu but who knew it can get worse? Long story short, it was a loooong, exhausting ride from Tulamben (north-east coast) to Seminyak (southern end). Luckily, we had great deal of comfort and luxury waiting for us at Courtyard by Marriott Bali Seminyak Resort.

Is Legoland fun for adults without kids?

I have been transiting through Singapore almost every time I travel around Asia. Therefore, I think it is safe to say that I have seen the best (and worst?) of it. On my recent trip to Indonesia, with a couple of days stop over in Singapore, I decided to go OUT for a change. I have two of my bestest friends who are now based in Singapore to travel with me to Johor Bahru, a neighboring Malaysian city, where Legoland is.
