Hubby and I are passionate travelers. Apart from experiencing new places and immersing ourselves in culture of various locales, we also both enjoy collecting tangible reminders of our trips. For the most part, hubby keeps an eye out for pieces from local artists, while I tend to lean towards home décor items.
We just came back from a splendid beach holiday in Lombok, an island in Indonesia, and boy, is it harder to come home than to go on a getaway! Post-trip blues are real.

Pisa is a city in Italy’s Tuscany region best known for its iconic Leaning Tower. Already tilting when it was completed in 1372.

My favourite part of hanging around Piazza dei Miracoli is watching most tourists trying to capture the classic “holding up the tower” shot. It is such a spectacle. I have done it once too.

If you are fond of French cuisine then this is a plate you absolutely have to try. It is a classic Lyonnaise dish that is usually served as a main course. Thanks to Khema Restaurant, you don’t have to go to Lyon to have it.
My Quenelle de Poisson was delicately cooked to perfection, beautifully presented and luscious to the last bite. It sure brought back beautiful memories of my time spent in Lyon: The Capital of French Gastronomy.
