My Authentic Getaway to South Asia

Close your eyes and imagine hills of verdurous rice paddies, clear blue beaches and colourful vibrate coral reefs waiting to be explored by you.  Now imagine sweating it out at a meditating yoga class and feeling fully refreshed afterwards.  To help loosen up the tension in the muscles, a luxuriate massage session is waiting for you by the resort pool.  Sounds amazing? Bali is a small yet an exotic island that encapsulates all these things.  Its exoticness is exactly the […]

Photo Update: Okinawa shots are up!

It took me a while to get to it but I finally managed to go through my backlog of photos taken in Okinawa during my October trip.  I have yet to write a full story about it, but I think the photos speak for themselves.  Okinawa is a stunning place and dare say that anyone who goes there would have a magical time. Anyways, you can enjoy looking at my photos here: http://the-little-me.com/photos/okinawa/

Away in Taipei

My travel experience has taught me that a trip without hiccups or mistakes isn’t a good trip.   It is easily forgotten if not hard to remember.  A trip that went all well and good is harder to remember the full details.  It’s like nightmares where you remember mainly the bad ones and the good ones leave a good feeling only.  Well, my last summer trip to Taipei was nothing short of hiccups and mistakes for a life to remember. Towards […]

Breathtaking Hokkaido

For years, Hokkaido has been on my travel list.  I’ve wanted to put a tick next to this place on my list for yonks.  Years of listening to other people’s stories about how great the place was, and having amazing pictures on various locations in Hokkaido presented to me when I least expected it; I was done being the sitting duck. I needed to take matters in my own hands.  One night, while sitting on the floor in my apartment, […]

London Escape

During the end of August to early September, schools in Japan go on summer vacation. My workplace, a Japanese high school, was no exception (although, most students and teachers continue to linger around school for extra classes and extra curriculum activities – aka school club activities). Luckily for me, my job role did not bind me to any work commitments of the sort.  Not sure whether it was the travel bug or the stress built up from work, but I […]

Strange 4D Animation Evening

Movies have evolved so much over the few decade.  New spectrum and story line push the limits of what producers and directors can do to make a good show for its audience.  Back in the day, when Titanic was filmed, it was label the most extraordinary and expensive movie of its time.  It’s budget was 200 million US dollars.  Well done, James Cameron.  Next, we had Avatar which made designers create new technology to make the backdrop of the movie […]

Onsen Away

Around the end of April “slash” beginning of May, it was Golden Week in Japan. Golden Week is one of the best holidays in Japan because people get a consecutive three day holiday during the middle of the week. Now this doesn’t sound like much, but trust me when I say it sure does mean a lot to the Japanese working society. Fortunately for me I didn’t have any commitments at school during that week, so I was able to fully enjoy the time […]
