Not Impressed with Temasek

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, we miss Malaysian food! Cravings for Malaysian food hit us every now and then, especially during festive season like the Hari Raya or Mooncake Festival, when we see more pictures of good food on our Facebook feed. Therefore, it is inevitable that we scout around for…

Easy Peasy Banana Cake Recipe

I wonder what’s wrong with me, lately I have been on a banana cake-baking frenzy! It has been 3 weekends in a row that I’d baked banana cakes and I’m still not getting tired of it. Having said that though, I must admit the banana cake recipe is far from perfect. I still think that…

Crystal Jade Chalet

Our one night at Sun Moon Lake was spent at Crystal Jade Chalet, a random hotel we found from the internet. There were plenty of chalets and hotels around the Sun Moon Lake city centre where the pier was, but we thought that to be too noisy and commercialized. After much scouting, we called up…

Sunset in Sun Moon Lake

It’s Monday morning, and as with most people, a lazy one. Which is why I’m going to do the right thing by posting more pictures and less words in this post. While we were in Taiwan, we did the adventurous thing of taking public transport and traveling all the way to Sun Moon Lake for…
