So it all started when a friend posted a series of pictures on Facebook; nicely filtered with VSCO, of course. I flipped throught them + sighed: That logo font! Those fishing-boat lights! (Not that I’ve ever been on a fishing boat, mind you). That graphic rendering of a lobster anatomy, looking freshly torn from a 18th-century naturalist’s notebook! (Not that I’ve ever met an 18th-century…

Maji Square at Maji Maji 集食行樂

Maji Square at Maji Maji 集食行樂

We came for beef noodles, and left having discovered a gourmet supermarket + an international outdoor food court + an outpost of my favorite Taipei bar + oodles of design products. As you do.

It was a Sunday. My sister appeared at my bedroom door, her face ashen + her voice cracking with panic. She broke the news: she had just read in the newspaper that it was the very, very last day of the…

Fabrica is a relatively new kid on the block; a newcomer to the ever-evolving selection of cafes in Taipei’s  東區 (East District).

Oh, look—a shiny pin, straight from my Pinterest account. (Go ahead now, get gone.)

Our Two-Week Vietnam Itinerary

Our Two-Week Vietnam Itinerary

As you may know, I recently went on a 2-week backpacking jaunt around the lovely country of Vietnam. My companion & partner in crime was my friend Jenny; a good friend who possesses the exact opposite travel preferences as me. Needless to say, there were stories. Regardless of our differences, one thing Jenny & I agreed on was that she would take the charge in planning our itinerary, because I’m…

Problems Only Single Girls Who Travel Understand

empire

Amongst my friends, I’m that chronically single friend. I’ve never been in a relationship that’s lasted over 6 months, and I’ve certainly never been in love with anyone I’ve dated. And, I travel. 

And so I believe that I’m in a unique position to understand the multitude of problems that single girls face when they’re on the road & abroad. I am revealing them now, for the world to know.

Let’s…
