The Chinese do not dine. They feast. So, get used to it. In order to truly enjoy the delightful and tasty Chinese cuisine, I strongly advise to never travel alone. Ever. And it isn’t because of language but food, my friends. Food. Chinese do not eat, they feast! And how can you feast alone? This is no fun! You need friends – you order up, share it and have a jolly...

Social, fun & delicious. Some call it hot pot, steam boat or shabu-shabu.

So my first touristy stop is the famous...

Indonesia. A land so vast and home to many diverse cultures, landscapes and cuisines – it is a no wonder that the Indonesian cuisine is just as rich, flavourful and definitely a culinary delight. The Indonesian cuisine seems to have kept its profile very low – meaning it is probably Asia’s best kept secret. So, a fortnight of culinary journey… I shall begin with the...

One might call this paradise.  The Philippines is blessed with gorgeous pristine beaches.  Depending on where you go, generally the Philippines is less touristy than Bali and Thailand combined.  If you are into diving, the Philippines is a good place for it!      And the cuisine is simply delicious! Famous for lechon, adobo, sinigang and pancit – just to...
