The Time We Ate Poon in the Netherlands

22 Feb , 2016   Gallery

Although the breakfast at IKEA was ingenious and delicious, it, of course, was not the only thing we ate on our roadtrip. In fact, as I had mentioned before, it was so rainy in the last leg of our trip that we didn’t get to do much, except eat. After we left Brussels, where we […]

The Time Marking Waffle’s Addiction to IKEA

23 Jan , 2016   Gallery

When you hear the word IKEA, what comes to your mind? Cheap furniture? Nightmares of putting together said-cheap furniture? Minimalist Scandinavian Design? A maze in which you can’t seem to get out of? Richest man in the world? Swedish Meatballs? …or Breakfast during Roadtrips? I’m not new to eating at IKEA, and neither is any of us on […]

The Time We Drank Our Way through Belgium

16 Jan , 2016   Gallery

Ah, Belgium. Ah, Beer. Sometimes I wonder if there’s a correlation between the country’s name starting with a B, and its capital and one of its most well-known tourist spots also starting with a B. The day we arrived in Bruges, the first stop of our roadtrip, it was raining hard and the guys were unprepared for […]

These characters are pronounced as Bei Jing in Standard Mandarin. When Europeans first arrived in China, they came through the Southern ports, which is why this capital city was known as Peking. […]

The Time I Ordered Liver for Breakfast [Beijing]

23 Aug , 2015  

I have to admit, if you haven’t already noticed from my previous posts on this trip, that I wasn’t the most pleasant human being on my time in Beijing: I complained about the density of the crowd, the hacking cough of the locals, the length of the walk between a intersecting metro line, the spacing of buildings, the […]

What I Ate in Taipei

15 Aug , 2015   Gallery

It’s inherently obvious that I like identifying as a Taiwanese and I like being identified as a Taiwanese – mainly because Taiwanese girls are known to be pretty (though I don’t actually look like a typical one), Taiwanese people are known to be warm and friendly (though I’m irritable and snappy), and Taiwanese food are […]

The Time We Spent a Week Eating Out of a Cooler

5 Mar , 2015  

So here’s the thing – at the beginning of 2013, my boyfriend had the opportunity to travel to Australia for work. I was jealous. I was so jealous that I decided I was going to buy a ticket and follow him there whether he likes it or not…thankfully he didn’t mind. The problem was, the plane […]
