Kowloon Peak aka Suicide Cliff

Hong Kong is very well known for it's variety and endless options of hiking trails. With an abundance of mountains and skyscrapers in between it fills the heart and soul with a balance of nature and city life. On our Asian Adventure, Enslin and I wanted to do at least one hiking trail - as... Continue Reading →


Big Buddha – Po Lin Monastery – NgongPing

After arriving back in Hong Kong from Shanghai we had a good rest that night in our comfy hotel, such a good rest we probably slept in longer then we should have. Nonetheless our destination for the day was one we both looked forward to. I had the fortunate blessing of going to this place... Continue Reading →

Ancient Water Town of Wuzhen

The idea that got us to go to Shanghai was in fact to see a water town. Enslin did his wide search of those we could go to and Wuzhen seemed like the perfect fit, far out of Shanghai but not too far that it was a hectic journey. Getting to Wuzhen had us take... Continue Reading →

Typhoon Hato

It has been a while since my last post and the main reason is due to Typhoon Hato, a Signal 10 that hit us here in Macau. It was quite unexpected, and not enough fair warning was given to us by the government. I have learned in my time here that the Macau government is... Continue Reading →

We were so... Continue Reading →

Getting here is so easy! I included some transportation tips below. One subway stop from our hotel and we happily... Continue Reading →

Welcome To Shanghai 

Our trip to Shanghai was truly one of those amazing adventure journeys that had us guessing, reading maps with no data, asking for help, walking for hours, being grumpy and then being extremely overjoyed when we set eyes on our beautiful destinations. Due to an early morning Monday flight from Hong Kong, we decided to... Continue Reading →

The Expat Life: Conversations with people “back home”

Expat Panda

I don’t know about you, but I am so tired of hearing the same boring statements from people we left behind to pursue a better life in a new country. When my friend Shardale and I were on Skype one afternoon (her in Macau and me in Kuwait), we were swopping stories about the things people ask us and realized- IT’S THE SAME ANNOYING QUESTIONS! So she has compiled some of the most frequently heard things that we expats have to deal with and here they are. Aren’t you tired of hearing:

You are so lucky/privileged/fortunate!

I am only this way because I have found the route to get here, which you can do also. Like most expats, I do not come from money; I found a way to give myself this opportunity.


When are you coming home?

I really have no set plans for this, home will always be…
