Food Review: Tealive x Walls Bobalicious Ice Cream - Genius or Meh?

Who here is as crazy about Boba tea as I am? While the boba craze may have come and gone and come and gone again, I will always say that Tealive is easily one of my go-to bubble tea brands. It's certainly more reasonable than many boba brands and easily available in malls and at petrol stations.

So when it was announced that Tealive would be collaborating with my childhood ice-cream brand, Walls, of course I couldn't resist heading out to the nearest 7-Eleven to buy a stick or two...or four of the new Walls x Tealive Bobalicious ice-cream.

Adventure awaits us in Malaysia's Backyard with Sedunia Travel

The final day has finally arrived when the government has opened up interstate travelling to Malaysia. While it still means I can't go back to my Kampung aka Japan, it does open up the country for economic recovery and an opportunity for people to explore their own country aka their own backyard.
Why travel so far when we have stunning pristine beaches just a quick drive or flight away? Hm, I might just hop on a flight to Kuching to get my fill of Sarawak Laksa. But with a limited budget and leave days, a weekend trip seems like a better idea for now. Ready to take Malaysians on an adventure with the introduction of their domestic travel campaign, In MY Backyard, Sedunia Travel has a plethora of local travel packages that showcases the beauty and appeal of our very own country.

5 reasons why you should rent a bicycle the next time you travel

I think one of my best memories of travelling was the time I cycled 21km around Kyoto on a rented bike. I cycled from my hostel (Hana Hostel) near Kyoto Station to the Imperial Palace where we took a free tour in English then onto Kitano Temangu Shrine for their monthly bazaar and then to the Golden Pavillion. It was perhaps the most memorable day of that entire trip. 

So if anyone were to ask me if they should cycle, walk or rent a car to explore a place, I would say - just cycle. You get the best experience of walking and being on two wheels.
