Bandung in 4 Days, Part 2

Click here to read Part 1! We waited until Monday to drive to Lembang to avoid the weekend tourism rush. If you're not familiar with Bandung and Lembang, it's a good idea to rent a car with a driver for the whole day as it's relatively cheap and saves you the hassle of getting lost… Continue reading Bandung in 4 Days, Part 2

Vegan Pad Thai

Ever since I read The China Study at a friend's recommendation years ago, I've been thinking about switching to a vegetarian/vegan diet, but found it quite challenging. Personally, I'm so used to having meat in most of my meals that it's a habit more than a conscious choice, and socially South East Asians in general… Continue reading Vegan Pad Thai

Weekend Outfit – Batik Dress, Circle Bag, Black Kitten Heels

London Day 8 & 9 – Emirates Stadium, Notting Hill, Kensington Garden

Since he discovered soccer/football, Arnold has been an Arsenal fan, so a trip to London wouldn't be complete without a visit to the Emirates Stadium, the Gunners' home turf. We did not end up taking the stadium tour because we had to rush to catch a musical (The Book of Mormon) but Arnold was not… Continue reading London Day 8 & 9 – Emirates Stadium, Notting Hill, Kensington Garden
