The Working Capitol on Robinson is a really pretty space that is home to my favourite cupcake bakery, co-working spaces, and now, Pickleville. Pickleville is a new coffee haunt by the folks behind Sarnies, and it sits on level four of the building. The cafe has an abundance of natural light streaming in, and eye-catching gold details that I love. A big thank you to Alainlicious for bringing me here!

If you don't already know, Pan Pacific Singapore is one of my favourite, if not favourite hotel in Singapore. The five-star property has the best buffet restaurant, Edge, a cozy Atrium where high tea sets and cocktails can be enjoyed, a marketplace where you can get your hands on freshly made pastries and goodies, and the amazing Hai Tien Lo which dishes out phenomenal Chinese cuisine. I've been to the hotel many times but it still surprises me - everything is so consistently good here. And now, Poolside Patio, an al fresco dining venue adjacent to the refurbishes swimming pool and Poolside Bar, is set to blow diners away with a sizzling four-course barbecue menu on Friday and Saturday nights.

With three outlets in the CBD, MoVida is definitely doing something right. I made a reservation about 2 months prior to my arrival in Melbourne, and stepping into the cozy and warm MoVida Original for my first dinner in this beautiful city proves to be one of the best decisions that I made in my entire trip. Packed to the brim on a Thursday night, MoVida has a team of the friendliest servers who won't hesitate to give you recommendations. Are you ready to find out more about the second best meal that I had in Melbourne?

Before I went to Melbourne, I did plenty of research on where to eat. Every holiday for me is about food, food, and more food. I got in touch with a couple of food bloggers in Melbourne to ask for recommendations. I was so sure that my palate would be dazzled and the calories that I would be piling on would be worth it. Unfortunately, despite heeding recommendations and visiting some of the most raved about restaurants in Melbourne, I was sorely disappointed. I was there for three weeks, and really had alot to eat, but there are only a few places that I'll recommend. And, Rice Paper Scissors is one of them. The entire dining experience was amazing - the servers were really friendly, warm and helpful, the atmosphere was cozy and lively, and most importantly, the food was really good.

Those who love Japanese food, particularly sushi, should be no stranger to Ryo Sushi. Even if you have not dined here before, you would most probably have heard of their amazingly-priced omakase sets. Omakase dinners have long been known to be expensive, with the prices hitting $350 per pax (before taxes) at most of the established and esteemed Japanese restaurants on our sunny little island. Shinji is one of the places where most people dream of dining at, but a meal there will cause significant damage to your piggy bank. If you're thinking of going for an awesome omakase dinner, but not keen on splurging that much, Ryo Sushi is undoubtedly the place for you.

People heading to Tokyo on vacation will usually include the touristy stuff in their itineraries. Activities include visiting Kawaguchiko for a glimpse of Mount Fuji, spending the day at Disneyland Tokyo, taking pictures at the famous Shibuya crossing, and more. Few know about Fuji Safari Park, which is near Mount Fuji. Fuji Safari Park gives you an experience somewhat similar to what you will experience in a safari in Africa, but at a fraction of the price.
