Bangkok Daily ~ February 2018

I’ve lived in Bangkok for over three years now. On one hand, it feels like forever, on the other I still feel like I arrived yesterday. We’ve just committed to another two-years on our current contract which will take us through to June 2020. Although that’s only two years aways something about 2020 sounds like…

Angkor Wat & Siem Reap, Cambodia

One of my aims since last summer was to visit a few more of the incredible places that are right on our doorstep. Hanoi in September blew me away so when we had another long weekend in October we hopped on a plane to Cambodia (flying time, just over an hour from Bangkok) to visit…

Travel Moments of 2017

As 2017 draws to a close, I can’t help but reflect on what really has been an awesome year. We’ve travelled to some incredible places, fallen in love with most of them, and had lots of amazing visitors who, even after three years in Bangkok, continue to come and see us. We really are so…

The Ultimate Christmas Q&A

I read the Ultimate Christmas Q + A over on the lovely Life of Angela and thought I would give it a go. I don’t usually do these sort of posts but I enjoyed reading Angela’s so I hope you’ll enjoy reading mine and if you fancy doing it yourself, it’s not too late! What…

A Very Bangkok Christmas

Anyone who assumes just because Thai people don’t celebrate Christmas it’s not really a thing here would be massively mistaken. Bangkok seriously goes to town on Christmas, like big time. The malls are insanely decorated, it’s like fairy lights have been spewed over the city and the festive tunes are pumping all over the place….

A Quick Singapore Weekend

We just had a quick weekend jaunt to Singapore to catch up with friends and meet a new family member! One of the best things about living in Bangkok is being able to get to so many other places in just a short flight. I love Singapore and every time I go I like it…

Monday, Monday…

Seriously…where did October go?…and how is it November tomorrow? To say it’s been a hectic month would be a bit of an understatement. The past weeks have flown by in a flurry of friends, family and trips to Cambodia and Phuket. It’s been awesome but has left me decidedly behind on the blogging front so…

A Long Weekend in Hanoi

To say I fell in love with Hanoi is probably an understatement (I declared we should move there less than 24 hours in…). I loved how unique the culture still is, I loved the hectic, scooter filled streets, I loved the food and the cheap beer and the delicious egg coffee! We were there for…

Catchup

So sorry I haven’t blogged in ages, the last weeks of term at school are always crazy busy and this year it was no exception. If anything this year was actually crazier as we have had a number of close friends leaving Bangkok so we’ve had non-stop parties and celebrations for weeks which of course…

Bangkok Daily ~ March 2017

I feel like I am so behind with my posts. I have lots planned to round up my Australia series, document my time in Chiangmai and Khao Lak as well as a few restaurant and beauty reviews but as per usual everyday life is getting in the way and whilst I felt like I was…

Review ~ Patissez, Bangkok

Patissez is a restaurant originally from Canberra, Australia which opened it’s first Thailand branch just off Sukhumvit 39 a few months ago. Patissez is famous for its FreakShakes (a trademarked term I’ll have you know!) so I went with some friends to check it out. The decor is nice and the restaurant has a funky, airy…

Neon Lights Festival, Singapore 

At the end of November, we headed to Singapore to attend Neon Lights Festival. This two-day event (no camping) was held at Fort Canning Park and we bought tickets for the Saturday (around £65 I think) mainly to see Foals but also just to get our fix of live music! Something we don’t get enough…
