Due to jetlag, we were able to wake up quite early today without any issues. We leisurely packed up, checked out and then headed to Tsuta Japanese Soba Noodles, where one can eat the famous Michelin-Star ramen. But don’t expect a spontaneous walk-in kind of experience. ...Continue reading
Japan 2.0: Day 1 (Tokyo)
After over 16 hours of watching multiple Hollywood, Korean, and Chinese movies, listening to random podcasts and audiobooks, and eating questionable plane food, we finally landed in Tokyo at their Haneda Airport.

Unfortunately, it was not… Continue reading NYC Day 3: Food and Shopping Galore!
NYC Day 1: Commuting Adventures
My day started early with a 6am flight to catch, but I really enjoyed having the option to park and fly. I used to hate having to rush down when the taxi/uber got here. I appreciate being able to proceed at my own schedule. The parking was easy to find and the shuttle service very… Continue reading NYC Day 1: Commuting Adventures
Spicy Tonkotsu Ramen @ Ginza Ramen
We wanted to grab something quickly for a late lunch the other day and we had to be in Chinatown to pick up something anyway, so we decided to go the Ginza Ramen. This quaint little place is a very simple restaurant located at the west end of Chinatown (or China Street…because it is literally… Continue reading Simplicity
