More Tokyo scenes

Memory of Tokyo: One of My Favourite Cities

Tokyo is one of my favourite places in the world. There is something about Tokyo and I guess Japan in general that has always intrigued me. So it is my goal to see more of Japan in the next 5 years.

The Meiji Shrine is one of those places where as soon as you set foot in the complex, you can feel the spirit of the place that makes it special. I remember the feeling of calmness and peacefulness setting in as I walked through the complex. Meiji Shrine is a Shinto shrine that is dedicated to the deified spirits of Emperor Meiji and his consort, Empress Shoken. Emperor Meiji was the first emperor of modern Japan. To learn more about the history of the shrine, visit their website.

Another side of Hong Kong:

Day trip to Ngong Ping to see the Po Lin Monastery and the Tian Tan Buddha (also known as the Big Buddha).

On the way back, we passed by the sleepy fishing village of Mui Wo.

Memory of Asia’s Most Dynamic City: Hong Kong

Another one of my favourite cities in the world. Together with Tokyo, this is another city where I feel a certain connection. There are so many places to see and things to do in Hong Kong; but if you only have limited time, go to the Peak to see the magnificent views of the Victoria Harbour and Hong Kong’s towering skyscrapers. The city is also known for its amazing dining scene. In fact, it is one of cities with the most Michelin-starred restaurants.

More pictures of Hong Kong to follow.

Changi Airport, Singapore

Changi Airport, Singapore

Memory of the World’s Most Awesome Airport: Changi

If I ever have to be stranded in an airport, I would choose to be stranded here. The list of unique amenities is endless: several gardens including a butterfly garden, a four-story slide (not just for kids), a movie theatre, and even an outdoor pool. Check out Jaunted’s tour of the airport to see more pictures.

What’s more, Changi is actually undergoing an expansion; Terminal 4 is expected to up the awesomeness of this airport come 2017!

 

Next stop: Hong Kong!

Singapore Botanic Gardens:

Open from 5am to Midnight, daily. Admission is free except for the National Orchid Garden, which I think is worth the $5.00 fee. Click here for more information including how to get there.
