It's October and it's time for the annual Taichung Jazz Festival, a highlight of the local culture calender and something that I never miss. The festival started last Friday, and will continue till next Sunday, that's ten full days packed with jazz performances from around the world.
Dongdaemun Design Plaza (DDP) is a short stroll away from the Cheong Gye Cheon in Seoul, Korea.This area is famous for the fashion and textile wholesale market which unfortunately was closed when I went. Luckily I found the Dongdaemun Design Plaza in
Recently, someone I followed on Wordpress, a gentleman called Peter, wrote about postcards (does anyone remember what they are?) and how they are losing their appeal over posting on social media instantly. I've never been a big postcarder myself, the only one that I can remember sending - back to
The Nanta show is the longest running show in Korea since it premiered in Oct 1997. I love percussion, even though I can't play any instruments at all. And ever since I watched the Stomp in London some years ago I've always been on a lookout for similar shows elsewhere. Nanta is similar to Stomp.
My first day in Seoul didn't start off too well. I went to bed at 3am the previous night as I forgot to adjust the time on my watch by an hour forward. I lazed in bed till 10am the next morning and hubby had to literally drag me out of bed. Plus he w

Rock in Taichung runs over two d
On a previous visit to Madrid, there was one day that I had an option to go to either Toledo or Segovia. From memory, both were about an hour away by train. In the end, I opted for Segovia, I think it had something to do with food (again!!) and the fact that it had a gorgeous Roman aqueduct.
The fourth stop on my Xmas cruise in the Med was Tenerife. Tenerife is a very popular holiday destination for the Brits. Over 2 million visit every year as there are many cheap package holidays from Britain. For many, Tenerife may not have the best reputation, and sadly that was my impression of it.
The other day I wrote about my wedding anniversary trip to Copenhagen. One of the main reason for going to Copenhagen was because it's a foodie heaven. It would be cruel not to share the gourment meals I had.
As I mentioned in my last post
It's coming to the end of August, and this is a flashback wedding anniversary post of when we went to Copenhagen, Denmark a few years ago. The Danes are famous for their sleek designs, and Copenhagen is a foodies heaven. It was a long weekend that was bound to happen sooner or later.
I've always been a bit fascinated with this run down building since I first learnt about it. And before you wonder, no this isn't an urbex post, I'm not that brave, I'll leave that to the serious urbex guys like @slobberchops and @martibis.
The Zhongying Recreational Building is located in the C
