by Phan Len @ Inspitrip Blog

Ho Chi Minh City – also known as Saigon – is no longer a strange destination for travellers visiting Vietnam. Arriving at Tan Son Nhat Airport, you are free to venture and explore a number of destinations in Vietnam, but believe me, don’t mistake Ho Chi Minh as another sprawling modern city without personality.

MANDARIN ORIENTAL, SINGAPORE

by doodle diaries @ Doodle Diaries DXB

Leaving the airport during rush hour on a sunny morning in Singapore, it was our taxi driver that gave us our induction to this spectacular city. Cruising down the road with not a sign of traffic insight (a bizarre sight for such a cosmopolitan city), coming from the desert of the Middle East, I was pleasantly surprised by how green our commute was. ‘It’s a crime to cut down trees in Singapore’ our taxi driver quotes ‘it is harder to get a permit to chop down a tree than extend a house’ – he shortly concluded by saying that planting trees was encouraged, and anyone at any time can plant a tree anywhere in the city they want – it was that moment that made me fall in love with this truly special city. Go for a refreshing dip in our pool! #MOgo 📷: @francimedia #MOviews A post shared by Mandarin Oriental, Singapore (@mo_singapore) on Oct 11, 2017 at 8:14pm PDT A fine city and for good reason, Singapore is also the most eco-friendly city …

EATS OF THE WEEK

by doodle diaries @ Doodle Diaries DXB

Galvin Dubai, CityWalk: Created by the Michelin-starred chef brothers Chris and Jeff Galvin, Galvin Dubai is located in the vibrant The Square, City Walk, an area of town that is constantly soaring to new highs – if you haven’t been already, make this a mission! The opening of this elegant and social restaurant and lounge represents the brothers’ first venture outside the UK after the successful opening of Demoiselle by Galvin earlier this year, also at City Walk. Inspiration has been drawn from a commitment to ‘Best of British’, infused with a Mediterranean Basin flair; an evocative array of Italian, Southern French and North African ‘flavours of the sun’ themes which are apparent through the food, wine, interiors and even the water. Believe me when I say you’ll instantly fall in love when you walk through the doors – there is something about the cosy interiors that urges you to dig into some hearty food accompanied by copious amounts of red wine. The interiors are on the dark side but trust me, it works. The emerald green …

VERSAILLES BRUNCH, ST REGIS DUBAI

by doodle diaries @ Doodle Diaries DXB

Let’s be honest – Dubai wouldn’t be Dubai without it’s famous Friday brunch, and as we all know, Dubai has one for every occasion. Whilst most are normally a rowdy affair, there are a few brunches out there that don’t end in drunken oblivion – the brunch at Brasserie Quartier is definitely one of them. Elegant in style, serving some of the finest French fare in the city, this particular Friday haute offers free-flowing champagne in a fantastic setting. Known in town as BQ, the French Kitchen & Bar is located in the heart of The St. Regis Dubai, and the new brunch, named the Versailles Evolution Brunch, celebrates the love of food – we are totally on-board with that! Worth getting out of bed for, the beautiful interiors of Brasserie Quartier are reminiscent of a neighbourhood French bistro with light wood, green velvet seats and the monochromatic tiled floors transporting you straight to the heart of France. Split into three sections, the main dining area, complete with open kitchen is where the main buffet …

Rhodes Twenty10, JBR: Dubbed as one of the best British restaurants in the city, the first thing you’ll notice when you arrive to Rhodes Twenty10 is the glamorous and striking bell-shaped crystal chandeliers, surrounded by a predominant theme of purple and white. The restaurant oozes understated class, with a vast downstairs space with cosy bar and a shiny chrome staircase leading to more secluded dining spots. The lights are dim, complimenting the mood perfectly and the artwork on the walls, adds to the old-worldly feel of the place. Once guided to our cosy circular booth, our enchanting waitress appeared, passing the menus and telling us about the sharing concept. Following recommendations, we started with the delightful yet sticky barbeque and honey baby back ribs smothered with fresh apple sauce – a pile of deliciousness that were surprisingly easy to eat with my fingers. This was accompanied by the spicy aubergine with crumbled feta and sautéed prawns, a dish that I was unsure with to start, but wowed us with every mouthful – who knew this unlikely combination could go so beautifully …

Living in Malaysia ... A Reflection on Our 11th Year

by noreply@blogger.com (Anabelle Co) @ Expatriate in KL

As anniversaries arise, one cannot help but reflect back on the journey. December 2016 when we moved to Kuala Lumpur, I had no idea what to expect. People told me their own views about the country and what limitations I would face in finding a job. Fast forward 11 years later, I could not have imagined that it would be this ... good. I didn't say perfect, but I said good because of the following...

1. As an expatriate, it was easy to get around, most people spoke English or would smile to me politely even if they didn't understand me.

2. Buying property is not impossible. You can own a piece of Kuala Lumpur if you intend to invest and stay here for a while. The banking system here is also amazing with the lending schemes they have as compared to back home in Manila.

3. Cost of living has gone higher since that fateful year 2006 when we arrived, but even as things have gone up, it's still better than most South East Asian neighboring countries -- especially if I compare it back home to Manila. Electricity, water, petrol, energy and infrastructure is way better... at this point in time of my writing.

4. Foreigners have equal opportunity to own and run a business.

5. I arrived Malaysia newly married. I had two kids here in Kuala Lumpur and the experience was great. I am grateful that there are opportunities here -- the chance to have good health coverage, the infrastructure of good hospitals and the friendly staff and people which makes it a wonderful country.

6. Competitiveness & aiming to be better and better - I learned many great things from working alongside Malaysians and that is to STRIVE TO BE BETTER every day. They have this spirit of wanting to be better and achieve great heights, and I appreciate that rubbing off on me. They try to achieve better infrastructure, which is the backbone for efficiency and businesses to flourish. The new MRT was recently completed with the forward thinking of the growing population. The roads are widened and increased, to accommodate more cars of the future. I appreciate these especially when I am STUCK IN TRAFFIC in Manila, which can be in a standstill for hours, due to the lack of planning, the lack of will of the past governments to grow or simply the lack of focus.

7. In my 11 years here in Kuala Lumpur, I look back and not a single typhoon... I was born in Manila and witnessed yearly calamities especially how typhoons destroy lives. 11 years here has been peaceful, yes with some incidences (e.g. flooding due to heavy rains) but never like the devastating things that have happened back home. I pray that it continues.

8. Growing number of expatriates and Filipino community -- it makes me feel darn right at home! Throughout the years in KL, I have never seen this much FILIPINOS around! They are everywhere, mostly in the service sectors. And it feels like home hearing their Tag-lish and Tagalog.

9. The government of Malaysia grants Resident Passes to people who are qualified. I am glad that they made it easier for expatriates, as compared to when I just arrived in 2006.

10. Highly connected, good internet and mobile infrastructure. I appreciate it even more after suffering through the snail-paced internet back home in Manila during my visits. Malaysia feels like heaven with the connectivity infrastructure. This allows individuals to discover the world out there, discover brands and what's new... it drives new businesses and faster adoption. This helps the economy and the people move forward.

I'm ending here with just 10 reasons, despite that I have a bagful of other things. I haven't posted for a long while due to a myriad of things that have sprung up since 2016. Meanwhile, as we celebrate 11 years soon ... there is only that feeling of content and happiness -- having left Manila, moved to Singapore and now Kuala Lumpur. Our city, our home.

There is something beautifully idyllic about the hammering and brushing noises from Mr Makita’s workshop, deep inside the backstreets of Downtown Tokyo. The early-Show era this may no longer be, but an early-Showa era business this most definitely is. Welcome to Ichiru, a kimono shop that is truly one of a kind. Until recently, Ichiru(...)

EATS OF THE WEEK: SINGAPORE

by doodle diaries @ Doodle Diaries DXB

ESQUINA: Established in December 2011, ESQUINA continues to be at the forefront of the local Spanish food scene in Singapore and is definitely one of our favourite eateries in the city. The modern restaurant, spearheaded by Barcelona-born Head Chef Carlos Montobbio, specialises in contemporary cuisine showcasing Spanish and Catalan flavours, in a cosy, interactive and intimate space. Located at the corner of Jiak Chuan Street, the two-storey restaurant, aptly named ESQUINA (“the corner” in Spanish), offers two distinct experiences – the ground floor features an open-kitchen concept and communal seating that encourages interaction and allows guests to watch the chefs in action, whilst the second floor is designed to create an intimate setting perfect for group bookings and private parties. With Chef Carlos’ curiosity for new flavours and techniques at the pinnacle, every dish is always exciting and delicately prepared. The word “evolution” is the guiding principle of his culinary philosophy, and his contemporary take on Spanish and Catalan food is crafted with refined and quality produce. The menu at ESQUINA is themed into five curated …

GALVIN DUBAI, THE SQUARE CITY WALK DUBAI

by doodle diaries @ Doodle Diaries DXB

December – the month where Christmas calories don’t count – always ends up being full of cheat days (followed by hours of FlyWheel to counteract all the food!) and this December, we’ve dined in some of my favourite restaurants – both new and old! With Play and Splendido filling our festive stomachs last week, this week we tried the newly opened Galvin Dubai, a restaurant I had heard mixed reviews about. Created by the Michelin-starred chef brothers Chris and Jeff Galvin, the newbie is located in the vibrant The Square, City Walk, an area of town that is constantly soaring to new highs – if you haven’t been already, make this a mission! The opening of this elegant and social restaurant and lounge represents the brothers’ first venture outside the UK after the successful opening of Demoiselle by Galvin earlier this year, also at City Walk. Inspiration has been drawn from a commitment to ‘Best of British’, infused with a Mediterranean Basin flair; an evocative array of Italian, Southern French and North African ‘flavours of …

SPLENDIDO, RITZ CARLTON JBR

by doodle diaries @ Doodle Diaries DXB

My first memories of Dubai not only involve sights of a sparse Dubai Marina and JA Hotel in Jebal Ali; they also involve Splendido, the classy Italian restaurant in the Ritz Carlton and a place that has been feeding me quattro formaggi pizzas since I was 10 years old. Recently renovated, Splendido offers a slice of Italian style combined with New York deli vibes, resulting in a combination of pasta, pizza, soup, seafood and a variety of meat and fish dishes available on the menu. Alongside delicious food, the restaurant also serves a commendable selection of signature and traditional cocktails and mocktails, as well as a selection of great wines, all which can be recommended to suit your dish by the expert sommelier. A hotel that seems to have been swamped by the tall towers of JBR, the Ritz Carlton never wavers in style, and continues to offer that same welcoming feel I felt all those years ago. Splendido, situated on the level below the lobby, has recently undergone a major renovation, and with that, warm tones, white wash walls and a …

NATHALIE’S CAFE, FIT REPUBLIK DUBAI

by doodle diaries @ Doodle Diaries DXB

There is nothing I like more than finding a new cafe in this city – and Nathalie’s was definitely the best surprise. I must admit, it has taken me YONKS to make my way over to this Sports City location, however, I can safely say, it was definitely worth the wait. You might expect a café next to one of the city’s biggest gyms to be full of gym bunnies and yoga-mat-carrying-mummy’s but no – Nathalie’s, next to FitRepublik in Sports City, is home to everyone from start-ups looking for a quiet spot to work to friends catching up over lunch – the thing I love the most however is the organic café serves an epic selection of healthy and wholesome food, with nothing compromising on taste! Opening it’s doors in 2012, the coffee and kitchen concept founded by Nathalie Haddad, owner of Right Bite, serves fresh food prepared daily, free of any additives, preservatives, and words you can’t pronounce – and what’s more, food can be enjoyed in the understated yet stylish hangout which …

KHYBER, DUKES DUBAI

by doodle diaries @ Doodle Diaries DXB

If, like us, you love a good Indian then we have found the place for you. Nestled on the 15th floor of the recently opened DUKES Dubai Hotel on the Palm Jumeirah, Khyber is the new kid on the Dubai block. Famous in Mumbai for its celebrity five-star Indian dining, attracting glittering stars such as Paul McCartney, Demi Moore and Richard Gere, Khyber has opened its first restaurant outside of its native city. On entry it takes a moment to grasp the sheer size of the place, providing large open plan and private dining areas – it can cater for the masses! Fitted out in keeping with its big brother, the restaurant provides authentic mixes of dark colours and splashes of gold in an ethnic style with realistic pillars, native art and glorious sculptures. Seated at our table on a foggy night over the festive period, we were assured the view on a clear evening provided something special (we will have to return in sunnier climes to attest).
