Sofitel Bangkok Sukhumvit + Giveaway

Sofitel Bangkok Sukhumvit Hotel

// The winners of the giveaway are #345 and #495. I have another upcoming hotel giveaway, do look out for it!

Bangkok is a city of contrasts: the chaos and traffic jams can drive you mad, but at the same time, you can find peace and solace in the beautiful temples and spa treatments.

Apart from crazy shopping, wonderful street food and relaxing massages, one of my favourite things about Bangkok is the abundance of beautiful hotels.

During my first trip to Bangkok last month, I stayed in Sofitel Bangkok Sukhumvit (189 Sukhumvit Road Soi 13-15  Klongtoey Nua Wattana, Bangkok 10110, Thailand Tel: 02 126 9999), and it was a memorable experience. Luxurious, elegant, modern, it is the perfect place from which to explore the city.

P.S. I am giving away two nights stay at Sofitel Bangkok Sukhumvit for two lucky winners. Read on to find out how you can win the hotel stay.


Melbourne’s Unique Yet Affordable Dining Experience

Melbourne Eating Guide

Words and photographs by Hui Jun Ng

Living in Melbourne city has been an exciting gastronomical experience for me. Being surrounded by endless food and beverages on a daily basis has prompted me to come up with a list of 5 special foodie experiences that are reasonably priced.

Forget about walking along the main roads, it’s time to venture further, turn into laneways and walk up/down dark stairways. These precious gems that I am about to talk about (an open concept roof top bar, a tram stop café, an Italian restaurant managed by a mischievous boss, a floating bar and an underground Japanese restaurant) are located in the city vicinity but often in unnoticeable places. There’s so much Melbourne can offer!


5 Things To Do In San Francisco

Things to do in SF

Renowned for its cool summers, fog, steep rolling hills, eclectic mix of architecture and historic cable cars, San Francisco is inarguably one of the most beautiful cities in the United States. With only 49 square miles, it is one of the most compact and walk-able cities in the world (yes, the hills can be a good walk too).

Although one could walk around the entire city, roaming from neighborhood to neighborhood, in just one day, fret not as you can always find every aspect to suit your travel persona here such that you’ll never want to leave this gorgeous place.

Here is a list of some of my favorite things to do in San Francisco that will make you leave your heart in the city.

How to get on Instagram Popular Page


I am addicted to Instagram. It is so fun. I love taking photos, and Instagram is perfect as it lets me share the precious memories with my readers and friends. For those of you who have been living in a cave, Instagram is a free photo-sharing program and social network. It allows users to take a photo, apply a filter, and share it with other Instagram users.

If you are on Instagram, I am sure you would have noticed the ‘Popular’ feed. To put it simply, Instagram’s popular page is where you can see the “most popular photos” by its 80 million registered users worldwide. Note: the key is worldwide. When your photo gets onto popular page, everyone around the world who is using Instagram will be able to see it, like it, and follow you. Which explains why getting on popular page is the fastest way to get more Instagram followers.

Instagram uses a special formula to determine which photos make it to the Popular feed – in short, nobody really knows the exact way to become popular on Instagram. For the past month, I’ve been getting onto Instagram’s Popular Page at least once a day, and from there, I’ve observed certain patterns.

Below, I will share some tips on How to get on Instagram’s Popular Page.

Relationship with food

I confess that I am constantly thinking about food. It’s the first (“What should I have for breakfast?) and last (“Should I have some snacks before I hit the sack?”) thought on my mind everyday. My relationship with food is complicated with many issues that involve plenty of decision-making, and I am sure that I am not alone in nursing this food fever.

Below I have included three reasons on how, and why you should end your love-hate relationship with food.
