When I first moved to Ottawa, the only local coffee shop around was Bridgehead. Over the years, Ottawa has become hipster coffee shop central. My friend, who is quite the coffee connoisseur visited Ottawa earlier this year, so I brought him coffee shop hopping around town. Here are the list of the ones we tried… Continue reading Coffee Shop Tour in Ottawa
On our last day in Montreal, we had to stop for some bagels. We’ve eaten bagels from St. Viateur in the past so we wanted to try Fairmount Bagel this time.

Photo of the day: Bun Moc @ Bun Moc Thanh Mai When we woke up this morning, we realized that the aches we were feeling were not entirely related to the workout we have been doing. We both started feeling chills/feverish, along with headaches/dizziness. We decided to take it easy today and did not plan… Continue reading Asia Day 7: HCMC

After a fun-filled day yesterday, we had plenty of downtime to just enjoy the amenities of the hotel today. We casually strolled downstairs to have breakfast at the hotel restaurant, then walked around the attached Harbour Mall. I was less than pleased with the shops in the mall; however. There was a billboard saying “Fashion…… Continue reading Malaysia II Day 9: Sandakan – KK
Some of my friends wanted to check out the rest of the tourist attractions before leaving, so it’s the perfect time for me to enjoy some time with food. I looked up the best breakfast place in the financial district where we stayed and came across The Brooklyn Breakfast Food Truck. Unfortunately, it was not… Continue reading NYC Day 3: Food and Shopping Galore!
