Australia is one of the countries that I visit the most other than Japan (considering what a Japanophile I am which all of you already know), and we have been making yearly pilgrimage to Queensland since even before Cheesiepetits were born.Continue reading
Previous blog posts on Rovaniemi:
This post is all about the pure nature of Rovaniemi, where you can set on a journey of peace and calm. There are lots of excursions you can try in the summer time, here are some:
Hello! After along pause I’m back with my update on Rovaniemi!
This is a photo post as Yuria and I set on a journey with Beyond Arctic photography expedition to hunt for the best spots to capture the signature midnight sun, as you already know the sun never sets in mid summer in Rovaniemi!Continue reading
Finland is the first new country I’ve been in the last 5 years.
I have probably flown more than 80 times in the last half decade with or without Cheesiepetits, but this was the first time that it was not (anywhere in) Japan, Bali, or Gold Coast. It was a new challenge. Maybe even the start of a new life I had been thinking about.
Given the chance of a lifetime to be a #RovaniemiSummerAmbassador, I had spent 6 full days in the official home of Santa Clause, experiencing the true Lappish nature and wilderness, under an almost eternal sunshine. read more
Quick filler post while I prepare for our family spring trip back to Japan.
My… yearly coordinate post😂. First and maybe last of 2018 😂. It is really because the danna was helping out every day with the kids, cooking and housework in the apartment that I get to play dress up… a little. People who think that I look like this every can’t be more wrong 😂. I usually go pick cheesiepetits up from school in Singapore in my pajamas hahaha.Continue reading
Actually this post is about the most loved castle in Japan, Himeji Castle, and the most coveted beef worldwide, Kobe Beef. But it was also my birthday. So I win the title. But I still love you, Himeji Castle and Kobe Beef. You are welcome.
So for the past two days (31st March and 1st April) we had been traveling to different places in the Kansai region to fulfil my #47prefecture life mission. We had another day free for traveling, but I couldn’t decided where to go. Okayama for fruits? … Wakayama? It’s kind of a very unpopular place for tourists but that’s exactly why I wanted to visit, because I’d probably not get many chance to do it 😅. Hmmm… perhaps the lake in Shiga? read more
Photo album for our trip to Gold Coast, Australia last month.
After one whole month of working without a single off day during CNY rush, the danna decided that he want to just chill the heck out at the beach for two whole weeks, so we traveled to his favorite surf spot – Gold Coast.
Junya has started liking the beach very much. Last month he told the danna, “papa, I want to go beach.” And immediately the danna’s eye lit up, and he went online to book last minute flight, that was how we all ended up in Bali suddenly. read more
Since I already have done Konmari Makeover once for our home in KL, I was very confident that I could do this again for our new home in Singapore.
And it would be super easy because when I packed from our previous apartment, everything was already sorted accordingly, and I have done the discarding, so now it was just to find every item a new home.
Here’s a house tour! Virtual open house for you all! Feel free to bring your own snacks and potluck lolol.
The first day we moved in on 23 Dec. read more

Quick post on the theme park we visited with Cheesiepetit during our stay in Tokyo.
We are running out of new major theme parks to visit so we are starting to explore the lesser-known ones. Who knows we may find a few hidden gems!
Junya loves vehicles in general so we decided to bring him to see some trains this time.
The Keio Rail-Land theme park/Museum is operated by Keio Electric Railway Company and is located in Hino city, Tokyo. It is adjacent to the train station “Tama Dobutsukouen” on the Keio Dobutsuen Line. It’s quite a distance from Tokyo, we drove there and it took us about 40 minutes. read more
