皖荟 @ Shanghai

China’s culinary scene is exciting. Just like its booming economy, new dining concepts that work on century old foundations spring up like mushrooms after a storm. Four months after my last visit to Shanghai, a new dining concept based on tofu started in the mall next door.

Kyoto and Nara

Started with Tokyo, spent a few days in Kyoto and decided to spend a day trip to Nara.

Arashiyama, Kyoto

A UNESCO World Heritage site for the bamboo forest, the mountain in Autumn was beautiful. The Monky Sanctuary was a long hike up but a children’s favourite. Just take the electric tram to this enchanting corner of Kyoto. Make sure you have a whole day there.

Autumn in Japan

Autumn is my favourite season. Falling leaves coating the land in amber and yellow. It is the golden season. And Japan offers one of the most beautiful autumn views. These were taken during the Autumn break of Dec 2017.
