One of the highly sought ryokans in Hakone has finally replied me that they do have availability after all. But this will cost me 888 sgd / person because it is known as ‘SEASONAL price’. And strange enough, the normal price (which is approx. 30% cheaper) will be valid if I choose to go 2 […]
I know, I know, its at least 2.5 months to Xmas and I’m already crazy researching & booking Japan-related stuff almost every day for the trip that takes place after Christmas. I even think about it in the shower. But its only because every Japanese folk out there is going to flock to these popular […]
The first of a series of travel notes & experiences I hope to jot down in this blog, hopefully to provide some idea, inspiration & feedback to others who may be interested to read another opinion of my vacation destination outside of trusted Trip Advisor reviews (which I intend to participate in the community really soon too – look […]
Just landed about 40 minutes ago, settled our cellular services, bought bus tickets, am on the way to the city for hotel check-in. People here are extremely friendly & polite, can’t wait to start our day of fun-filled activities!

After 4 days of soaking up waaaaay too much sun, sand and definitely sea (I had one too many gulps of), I’m back in Singapore. So much for entertaining the initial thought of a 2-day extension on account of what’s to take place in the coming work week. But I didn’t , after some […]
It may have been the shorter & cheaper of the 2 honeymoon trips that we’ve planned for 2008 but it was nothing less of a fantastic trip with the husband. We had a whale of a time, just like how a honeymoon trip ought to be and were abundantly blessed with safety, wonderful weather and […]
