To someone whose never seen snow, my winter trip to Hokkaido was nothing short of magical!

Located in the Northern-most part of Japan, it's the country's second largest island and is a favourite to a lot of skiers and snowboarders during the wintertime. It's also the bi...

This iconic dessert was once one the most-beloved by Japanese kids years ago. Made with spongecake and buttercream and often covered in chocolate, the name "Tanuki cake" would bring back fond childhood memories.

The Tanuki cake is named and patterned upon Japanese racoo...

I love cooking - but I'm such a procrastinating lazy bum that most of the time, there's always no time to prepare food for lunch or even dinner.

Luckily, I live five minutes away from my workplace and between that and my flat is a convenience store.

Now as any convenienc...

Or more. Like a dozen. Maybe.

Anyway, I have come to the conclusion that Amazon is dangerous. It will probably leave me penniless (or yen-less) by the time I realize what's happening.

As most of you know, I just moved to Japan so I'm pretty much starting from scratch - a...

It's the first weekend of the schools' summer holidays which means summer festivals and Yukatas!

In Japan, it is traditional to wear Yukatas for summer festivals where it's all about streetfood, traditional dances and of course, はなび (hanabi or fireworks). They are casua...

Oh that wonderful wonderful feeling of discovering an awesome food place just a few buildings down the road!

I've always been a fan of Indian curry and having lived in Singapore for quite some time, I had no trouble getting them anytime I wanted.  When I came to Japan h...

When we were still based in Singapore, I would ask Mitch what he wanted for lunch and the same answer came just as it (almost) always did: beans on toast. 

Beans. On. Toast.

What is up with that? Canned beans on top of bread - and that is supposedly considered a ful...

I've been intrigued by capsule hotels ever since I've heard of them so I decided this is one item to add on my bucket list that has a higher chance of being ticked off (compared to say, "earning a million by the time I'm 40" lol).

Last month, I had to go to Osaka for an...

Living in one of Japan's countrysides (although it has the word "city" in its name) has quite a few perks: cheaper rent, cheaper food, a more relaxed environment and my favourite part - awesome views of nature.

I live in Anan, a small city in Tokushima Prefecture. It's...

My bestfriend is Daiso. Even back in Singapore, I would go there as much as three times a week to see what stuff I can buy. Daiso is a ¥100 shop where mostly everything costs well, a ¥100 (¥108 including tax).

There are several ¥100 yen shops here in Japan but in m...
