I AM OFF TO JAPAN [Cherry Blossom Hunting 2023]

 After three long years, I am finally going to go back to Tokyo, Japan for cherry blossom season! And as luck would have it, the full bloom came early this year. Alongside a sprinkle of downpour over the week I'll be back in my kampung. 

Oh well. If there was one thing rain is good for, it's driving the crowd away. 

Stay tune for my upcoming blog posts about cherry blossom in Japan so that you too can start planning in advance for next year's season. In the meantime, follow me in my adventures across Tokyo and Fujiyoshida on my Instagram, @Sugoidays

Qatar Airways Business Class Review [KL - DOHA]

I was assigned to a work trip to Qatar to create social media content and got to enjoy a one way business class experience onboard Qatar Airways from Kuala Lumpur to Doha. I have ascended as a traveller *cue the angel's singing*

My group was initially in economy, which I didn't mind since I have heard nothing but praises for Qatar Airways. It was my first time too on Qatar Airways so I was excited to experience it. But when we got to the departure gate, we found out that we had gotten an upgrade to business class.

Nakwon Station Cafe, Ikseon-dong, Seoul

Personally, I thought Ikseon-dong was a much nicer neighbourhood to stay in than Myeongdong. Here, you get the best of two worlds - blending traditional culture with modern cafe. Ikseon-dong is a hanok village build in 1920. Although it is not as big as Bukchon Hanok Village, it is still a must-visit area in Seoul for cafe-hopping as there are so many different thematic cafes, hanok cafes and restaurants.
