Gourmet in Summer Palace – Aman, Beijing

Gourmet Chinese food enjoyed within the Summer Palace itself. This ass-kicking hotel restaurant had it all going – the traditional deco, the service, the ambience and the location. Different from most Chinese restaurants that I’ve been, this one was quiet and the waitron knew what service was. Honestly, after 8 years of bad service in China, this place was a paradise found.

Table Mountain, Cape Town

Symbol of Cape Town and my compass (towards the mountain = towards town). It is a daily beautiful sight for Capetonians.   Table Mountain – 1 of the 7 natural wonders in the world Feature: Naturally flat top mountain, 1086m above sea level. It hosts 1470+ rare and endangered  floral species.

Cinnamon show – Puroland, Japan

This was the reason why my husband was glad that my ex went with me to Puroland…… In fact, he even told me to keep my Hello Kitty photo together with my ex. He thought that I looked lovely with Kitty (+ex)?!?!? Clearly my hubby does not want to go at all. How many husbands out there will compliment a photo with wife’s ex AND encourage to keep the photo? One desperate husband lol. What’s wrong with Puroland? The shows were cute. In fact everything was cute and largely pink. How to get there? Keio Tama Center station Direct train from Yokohama – 1 hour-ish 1 change from Shinjuku (Tokyo) – just under an hour http://en.puroland.jp/attraction/   Please be a sweetheart & follow one of my social media xox Bloglovin’ / Google+ / Twitter / Instagram / Facebook / Pinterest

My Little Box UK February 2016

My blog will continue to be 99% about travel 🙂 Got to admit that this is a WEIRD entry for my blog. This is my 4th box 😀 I am loving it!! My Little Box UK. Why the strange post? It just that there are so few ‘My Little Box’ English posts going around and I am getting a frustrated looking around to share the experience.

Shuri Castle site – Okinawa, Japan

Shurijo site is 1 of a 9 parts UNESCO site (Gusuku) in Okinawa. A rather unusual arrangement really, these 9 sites are scattered all over the prefecture and isn’t all next to each other. The other 8 are: Tamaudun 玉陵 – Naha 那覇市 Sonohyan-utaki Ishimon 園比屋武御嶽石門 – Naha 那覇市 Shikinaen 識名園 – Naha 那覇市 Sefa-utaki 斎場御嶽 – Nanjo 南城市
