Hoi An: Vietnamese Food

Hoi An is situated on the central coast of Vietnam. It’s a romantic little town lined with wooden Chinese-style shophouses and canals. Visit Hoi An during the full moon lantern festival on the 14th day of the lunar month to be treated to a spectacular display. During this time, the ancient town of Hoi An switches off electric lights and light up lanterns instead. It’s so magical strolling down streets lit with traditional lanterns, as it would’ve been centuries ago. You can also partake by sending paper lanterns with a candle down the river. But an especially important reason to visit Hoi […]

Shipsomnia Cruise Party 2016 – Phuket, Langkawi

I started 2016 by going on a party cruise with Shipsomnia. There’s a misconception that cruises are cheesy or for old people and families. That’s true to an extent, but the cruise I went on with Shipsomnia was definitely not cheesy nor filled with families or old people (not that I have anything against them). It was a total party cruise!   Music & Party Cruise Shipsomnia is a music festival on a cruise party ship and it’s filled with good looking people. There was definitely more men than women on this cruise party so that was great for Maggie (my cruise […]

Travel Backpack – How to Choose the Perfect one

 When I’m on the road, my travel backpack is my best friend. I make my way down cobblestone streets and navigate through airports, train stations and crowded buses with my trusty backpack. It is crucial to pick the right backpack—one that fits your body well and holds the ideal capacity. One important point to take note of when you purchase a backpack is to ensure it is of optimal weight and capacity. A good rule of thumb is to carry not more than 20 percent of your body weight. I’m 60kg so I should carry not more than 12kg (that’s 20 […]
