Not Rich – Just a Crazy Asian

I love everything about Singapore – especially the food. It was like an upscale and cleaner version of Hong Kong and New York combined? If that makes any sense lol.

I was in Singapore for five days, and every day I was full haha. From the Whiskey Infused Xiao Long Bao to the $3 bowl of Lor Mee, I died and went to foodie heaven! What I fell in love with the most wasn’t just the taste of the food but how multicultural and diverse this country was. It satisfied my cheap-ass side and my boujee ass side too.

Not only was my stomach full, but so was my heart.

Bali Love

Bali is truly an Instagrammer’s Playground! From the food to excursions, you can expect your mind to be blown away. Many call Bali the Mexico of Asia due to price and number of gorgeous resorts to choose from.

I left for Bali in early June and was only in Bali for seven days, but I can’t wait to go back. I could totally see myself travelling there for over a month and being a true digital nomad! Since I was there for only one week, I wasn’t able to hit the islands, so that is definitely on the list next time. The two cities I visited in Bali were Ubud and Canggu.

Short Getaways & Packing Tips

It’s been a while since I wrote a travel blog. Funny enough I still haven’t done a blog about my last Indonesia & Singapore trip. But, here’s something short and sweet for those of you that love a good short getaway!

Since leaving my 9-5 I have travelled about 5-7 times a year #blessed and sometimes the trips are planned a year in advance thanks to YVR Deals, and sometimes they’re spontaneous (those are the most fun sometimes). But the thing I dread the most when it comes to travelling is packing! I’m always such a last minute packer because I need to try on all my outfits, find out where we will be going on the trip to decide what I want to wear and bring on the trip.

So I’ll give you a few of my favourite packing tips & tricks before I start blabbing on about my favourite wine & food pairings.

Bae Area

Man.. I don’t even know where to start. Let’s just say I was full during my entire 4-day trip in San Francisco. In those 4 days, I ate at 27 restaurants, became a skeeball champ, drooled while I watched Klay Thompson from afar, and so much more. Who knew you could pack all that into 4 days?!

Let’s dive in!

Aloha baby

Alohaaaa – This trip to Hawaii was unreal! Though this trip was a gift for Ben, I had the best time of my life and learned so many new things about myself. I think what defines an amazing trip is if you had delicious food, met new friends and learned something new either a skill or about yourself.

If you’ve read my travel blogs before then you should be familiar with my style of travelling. I don’t like touristy shit… aka I didn’t go to Hanauma Bay lol. I’ll hit up the ‘MUST EATS’ but I love discovering a new hole in the wall! During this trip, I didn’t have enough time to hit up the North Shore and try any shrimp trucks and go to the Dole Plantation… etc etc, so if that’s what you’re expecting in this blog then you can leave now.

Let’s get this started!

Osoyoos vs. Penticton

Cruising over to the Okanagan is always a good idea when it comes to small getaways. Now the only question you have to ask yourself is, “Should I go to Penticton or Osoyoos? Which one is better?”. You’ve probably heard so many times from each of your friends on which place is better and why. It’s probably goes something like this: “In Penticton, you haveee to go on the channel with a beer in your hand!” and “Oh, you’re going to Osoyoos? OMG you have to go to Burrowing Owl for dinner!”. In this blog, I’m going to tell you which destination I think is better and why.

Stuck in Kaohsiung?

2/3 Travel blog is upppp! I hope you all enjoyed my last blog post about my trip to Korea. If you’re interested in visiting Taiwan… specifically Kaohsiung then read on.

Kaohsiung – You might be asking me why the heck I went to Kaohsiung and not Taipei. I ask myself that too but the only reason was because our YVR Deal wouldn’t let us break the trip. However, it wasn’t all that bad to be honest because we got to visit Kenting!

서울 Korean BBQ Heaven

Here is the first of three travel blogs I will be posting. I just thought it would be too much information to pack into one single blog, because in reality all three destinations that I visited are so different and they each deserve their own! To begin Ben booked this trip for us back in Summer 2017 and was my birthday gift from him. Here we go…

Korea – Everything you thought Korea would be… is exactly what you thought it was going to be haha. Aka .. Soju, Korean BBQ, Rice Cakes, Fried Chicken, and a shit ton of face masks.

Vancouver eats.

I eat a lot. Like a lot. If you’ve ever watched my snap chat or instagram stories it will ALWAYS consist of some sort of food. Whether my bf cooked it or I’m out eating my face off. I live for the next meal haha. If you’re wondering what I’ve had for the past few months you can check my instagram highlighted ‘SNACKS’ story!

 

I thought I would put together a list of restaurants and things I like from each restaurant for you guys. I travel so much and eat so much so I want to start a City + Food series. It won’t be a billion blog posts but something simple enough that if you’re heading to

eg. Hong Kong or Barcelona you can click on my personal list.

 

Everything that I have listed below are just my opinions and a lot of places I’ve eaten at might not be on the list cuz I didn’t want to list out every damn restaurant in Vancouver LOL. If you want to know about a particular restaurant in Vancouver feel free to message me and I’ll let you know whatsup!
