Spring in Belem, Portugal

If any of you are looking for a place to visit this spring, Belem in Portugal is also another perfect destination. It is only a few minutes tram ride from Lisbon. What we did was actually just a day trip, as our main destination on this trip was Lisbon.

To get to Belem from Lisbon, you must take Tram Number 15 by the Rossio Station which is just around the Praca da Figueira.
Padrao dos Descobrimentos ( Monument to the Discoveries)- about 20 minutes walk from the Tram stop.
The Belem Tower- few metres away from The Monument to the Discoveries
Entrance fee: 4 euros in 2010, maybe more now
Opening times are : 10AM-5PM (Oct.-April), 10AM-6:30PM (May-Sept.), Closed Mondays
Mosteiro dos Jeronimos
- a UNESCO World Heritage Site and inside lies the tomb of Vasco de Gama.
Lunch at Antiga Capsula for authentic grilled sardines and octopus.

When in Belem, you should not miss out on the best Pastel de Nata from Pasteis de Belem.

Rua de Belem, No 84 a 92

2018, Thank You For The Roller Coaster Ride!

If I have not said it before, New Year is my favourite time of the year as it gives me the opportunity to reflect on the life that was and to look forward to the life that will be.  2018 was indeed a roller coaster ride of emotions, but I remain grateful because those emotions provided me with valuable lessons to be learned. I guess it is fair to say that 2018, you gave me false hopes at the beginning, but then you gave me the light in the end.  So, how did my 2018 go? Well, I documented my journey in my instagram account, so here are a few of my musings that best describe the year that was: 1. Because we have each other, it's good vibes only. - J and I had some minor health scare at the beginning of 2018. As minor as it was, it gave us emotional instability and some degree of physical challenge. I came to a point when I felt like I couldn't do anymore, however, I was reminded that J and I were in this together. The support that we had for each other during this chal

Afternoon Tea in London: My Experiences in 2022

Afternoon Tea has become a huge part of my life since 2006. It has been one of the things that's keeping me sane and happy, especially when life seems challenging and I need something to cheer me up. This is the reason why I didn't even realise that I may have actually overdone it last year. But I have no regrets because I enjoyed every single Afternoon Tea experience I had then, most especially because I shared those experiences with people who matter, old and new. In fact, I had some of the most memorable Afternoon Tea experiences last year, and I'm going to tell you why. 1. The Claridge's - Brook St. - Afternoon Tea at The Claridge's was on top of my list last year and I am glad that I was able to share this experience with two wonderful friends, Damaris and Veronica. Perhaps I could say that this Afternoon Tea sealed our sisterhood. It's amazing because despite our huge age difference, we get on very well. And this is why this Afternoon Tea at The Claridge&#

Restaurants in London: My Experiences in 2022

Just the thought of writing about my London restaurant experiences last year makes me feel like a true food blogger (haha, who do I think I am?), when in reality, I am just someone who loves a meaningful catch up with friends over good food and enjoys writing about them. I am very blessed indeed to have friends who share the same passion for food, and who are willing to explore the London food scene with me. In 2022, a few of my favourite restaurants sadly permanently closed following the pandemic, however I also saw the rise of newly opened restaurants and cafes in the capital. In fact, my list of "restaurants and cafes  to try" is growing rapidly as there are a lot of new restaurants that look really promising. And this is one thing I love about London - the restaurant scene is vastly diverse, you will never run out of options to choose from. Also l ast year, I revisited some of the restaurants that are close to my heart. I also managed to tick a few boxes on my restaurant
