San Francisco: Intercontinental Mark Hopkins & Top of the Mark

We once again tried our luck with Hotwire and landed a decent deal for the Intercontinental Mark Hopkins on Nob Hill.  Located on the corner of California and Mason, this hotel is literally at the top of a hill. The central location really made it easy for us to get around to places and more […]

Walking on the Golden Gate Bridge

One thing that I’ve always wanted to do was to walk on the Golden Gate Bridge. So for this trip up to San Francisco I insisted that we do that! Of course before walking across the bridge we did some obligatory tourist pictures in front of the bridge. We also roamed around the area looking […]

San Francisco: Good Eats in the Mission District

After hanging out at the Sutro Bathes/Lands End, we made our way to the Mission district. This area is a popular area for the younger generation, and seems to be the more “hip” area of San Francisco. This isn’t quite where the LGBTQ area is (Castro Distric), but we did see quite an influence here. […]

San Francisco Chinatown

San Francisco’s Chinatown claims to be the largest Chinatown outside of Asia. So how could we miss out on visiting this area?  As a matter of fact, it was less than a 10 minute walk from our hotel. And we ended up coming here multiple times during our vacation in San Francisco. Golden Gate Bakery […]

Ferry Building Marketplace

Food is always my number one attraction whenever and where ever I am traveling. So when we were planning a weekend trip to San Francisco, the first thing I looked up was good places to eat. One of the first things that caught my attention was the Ferry Building Marketplace. This is a historic building […]

San Francisco Cable Cars and Other Ways to Get Around the City

We made a road trip up to San Francisco over the Memorial Day weekend, and we tried to make the most of our three full days there. It’s not our first time there, but it has been a little over 10 years since we last visited. One advice that I have gotten over and over again […]

My Singapore Itinerary

Singapore: September 05, 2016 to September 13, 2016 I found that we’ve been traveling during the first 2 weeks of September for the last few years! 2013 = South Korea, 2014 = Hawaii, 2015 = Australia and this year 2016 = Singapore and Hong Kong. When we had finally decided that we were going to […]

Singapore Night Safari

We live pretty close to the World Famous San Diego Zoo, so going to Zoos/Animal Parks located elsewhere are always something we contemplate over for a long time. We went back and forth in deciding whether or not we wanted to make a day trip to go to the Zoo, Bird Park, Night Safari, etc. But we […]

The Central Clarke Quay – our Airbnb

Choosing where to stay when on vacation is always one of the most stressful things for me. We opted to use Airbnb during our stay in Singapore, and our choice turned out to be a rather nice place for us to stay. Check out that sunrise view! Our studio apartment was conveniently located above the Clarke […]

Food Republic Hawker Center Style Food Court

FOOD is always the first thing that comes to mind when I pick a vacation destination. Of course after hearing about all of the great food from Singapore from Sarah, how can I not be excited? On the first night we arrive in Singapore, we briefly roamed around the various malls in the Orchard Road area, […]
