At Last: Reunited in Tokyo

“If you want to go fast, go alone.
If you want to go far, go together.”

Tokyo together

Over the past few months, I’ve experienced so many adventures and feelings of happiness.

That said, nothing quite compared to the euphoria of seeing and traveling together again with my favorite person on the planet. Continue reading “At Last: Reunited in Tokyo”

Beer Haven in Saigon

Recently, I reminisced about a few things I really missed from home. One item on that list that I had some serious heartache for was beer.

Not just any beer. I wanted craft beer.

Sure, I love the cheap $1 local drafts as much as the next guy and I’m all for living like the locals. Continue reading “Beer Haven in Saigon”

The route so far, and what’s next

Ni hao from Taipei, Taiwan!

After several consecutive weeks of non-stop traveling, activities, and sightseeing, I now finally have time to sit, breathe, and write all the updates I’ve slacked on since July :)

My trip continues to be a whirlwind of spontaneity, one of living in the moment and savoring every bit of it. Continue reading “The route so far, and what’s next”

10 things I really miss about NYC

I’ve been on the road for a couple of months now with just my backpack. It weighs about 8-9kg. In that time, I’ve learned to live more minimally and roll with the punches. 

More importantly, I’ve learned to shed creature comforts and appreciate things I’d previously taken for granted. Examples include air conditioning, solitude, ice, cold beer, etc.

Riding Solo: Exploring Vietnam by Motorbike

“You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough.” – Mae West

For the good chunk of my 27 years, I feared motorcycles.

I refused to come near them, let alone drive one. To me, the risk wasn’t worth it. I’d already met heaps of foreigners who’d gotten into motorbike accidents, and I’ve witnessed quite a few myself.

Paradise Found: Exploring Lan Ha Bay

I drew in a deep breath, and held it there. My eyes opened and I gazed up at the overhanging limestone cliff above. Exhaling slowly, I chalked up once more and readied myself for the ensuing battle.

For a fleeting moment, I wondered why I do this to myself.

The Secret Beach at Cat Ba

Real quick update while it’s still fresh. 

Last night, I decided over drinks that I’d head over to Cat Ba Island today to see Vietnam’s famous Ha Long Bay and Lan Ha Bay. 

Ha Long Bay is a UNESCO World heritage site with massive limestone tower karst Continue reading “The Secret Beach at Cat Ba”

Hanoi and love and I 


It’s been less than 72 hours since I arrived in this crazy wild city, and I already love it here.

When I first arrived, I was intimidated by the chaos. The madness made me want to cower in a corner into fetal position.
