Travel Diary: Abu Dhabi

Since I was staying for a week in Dubai, I thought I’d save an entire day to go out of the city and explore the capital of UAE–Abu Dhabi. I’ve always wanted to visit the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque (yes, the same mosque Rihanna infamously did an impromptu shoot at). So to make the most […]


Travel Diary: Miracle Garden

Leave it to Dubai to create another amazing attraction that defies all odds. Who would’ve thought that a desert city where water is scarce would have the world’s biggest natural flower garden? With more than 45 million flowers designed beautifully over a 72,000 square meter site, Dubai’s Miracle Garden lives up to it’s name. Thank […]


Travel Diary: Dubai Desert Safari

I can not tell you how excited I was to try the desert safari experience in Dubai. All my friends who’ve been to Dubai have been raving about it–telling me it’s a must, especially for people who like to explore new sceneries. Obviously, my expectations were set as high as the sky. I was already […]

Dose of Happiness

“To spread happiness by turning an everyday essential into a colorful design piece with a rigid standard of ultimate quality, craftsmanship and creativity.”–This is the concept behind Happy Socks, the Swedish brand that offers the quirkiest and most stylish socks out in the market. I first spotted Happy Socks when I was shopping around Hong […]


Fit In

One can never have too many red clothes, especially when you’re Chinese. There are just too many occasions that call for wearing red that I can no longer count how many times I’ve thought to myself, “where the hell did all my red clothes go?!” This is why from now on, I’ve made a conscious effort […]
