Another Birthday Dinner At Another Nara Japanese Restaurant

Last Year in Sep, I was celebrating my friend’s birthday at Bukit Timah’s Nara Japanese restaurant. This year wise, I am spending time with my young sister and almost rest the siblings together for her birthday dinner at Nara Japanese Restaurant, but this time we are at Novena. Hidden along the dark alley of the old shophouses, the Nara Japanese Restaurant stands out of the shops, thanks to its traditional Japanese exterior design. Below are some photos for sharing.

Relax With Your Family For This Year’s Heritage Festival !

Many who are tired of the hustle and bustle of city life here may turn to Singapore’s outlying islands for a getaway, but not all are aware of the rich culture and history behind them. This year’s Singapore HeritageFest aims to change that: Singapore’s numerous outlying islands are the subject of this year’s festival.

Clear Blue Sky and Green Ricefield along The Way to Ubud (Day 2)

My girl friend had to drag me out of the bed after I was unable to wake up after my late night movie marathon at the villa. We have scheduled the driver to pick us up at 11am to travel to Ubud, for the famous rice field at Tegallalang.                          The journey took more than an hour and I was catching my wink while my girl friend was looking over the car’s window, looking at the life of Bali. When one part of the journey, I was woke up by the bright sunshine and a beautiful blue sky greeted me. This is one of the amazing photos I have taken. The motorbike is improvised with …

Brussels and 10 things you need to know about losing your passport in a foreign land

Location: Brussels/Bruxelles, Belgium No. of days: 2 So my first trip as a Londoner was to Brussels (Belgium). This is also the place my bag got stolen with my passport, phones, wallet, credit cards, cash and camera in it. So read on for my (realistic) advice on how to cope if the unfortunate befalls on you too. I emphasize on the “realistic” because most people will tell you “you should have done this, you should have done that”, but having felt like I went through hell and back, I can safely say no amount of preparation is ever sufficient. On happy things first, this is my second time to Belgium. The first time was to Antwerp and Ghent in 2012 and although I don’t recall much …
