Next up on the recap of our glorious shopping trip to Bangkok is Asiatique market. Now this one I had very low hopes for. Before we went to Bangkok we both made lists of the things we hoped to buy for ourselves and for other people. Well, Iris’s list had other people on it. I … More Yet another place we went shopping at that time we went to Bangkok to go shopping
Please see the last blog post to see the impetus of our trip to Bangkok. We figured while we were there, we might as well do more shopping. Most of our friends and family will be getting gifts from this trip for the holidays. And some of you might be getting gifts from Bangkok next … More The other place we went shopping at when we went to Bangkok to go shopping
So warning at the start. I took a lot of photos and videos of Chatuchak Market in Bangkok. They were on our gopro. I finally emptied the memory card and two days later my computer stopped working. So right now all those great videos and photos are sitting on a hard drive which may or … More That time we went to Bangkok just to go shopping
So as always….it’s been awhile. This time I have a good excuse. My computer crashed. My hard drive is kind of dead. I lost most of the photos from the last year.

Iris: 5:15 am: It’s too early. I want to sleep, but also, I want to eat. So it’s … More How to Lose Weight in Malaysia Part 34- The Berbuka Puasa Edition!
It’s time for that great tradition of our travels, the one with the misleading title about losing weight when in reality I put on like 2-3 pounds! As I think I mentioned before, our focus in Australia was two fold: Beer and burritos. Or at least Mexican food. It ended up being mostly burritos but … More How To Lose Weight in Malaysia Part 33-The Australia edition!
a lot of shopping. But also lots of sightseeing. Lai Wan did a great job planning this trip for us, and it was an awesome mix of eating, shopping, and seeing the sights. Our trip got off to an interesting start when one of the bags got left in KL, and a huge crowd was … More Vietnam: What happened in between meals…
Yeah so I couldn’t really come up with something creative for the title of this blog. Deal with it. So day four we decided to explore the coast, aka Bondi Beach. Bondi is world famous although for the life of me I had no idea why until we decided to come to Australia last year. … More We Went Down Under! Fourth Day in Sydney can mean only one thing: Surf and Sand!
It’s not like we were avoiding the Opera House. It’s just that they are not really going anywhere and can probably be viewed in most any condition. Where as the mountains and our planned trip on our last day to Bondi Beach are best done on nice days. Our plan was to do a self … More We Went Down Under! Third day in Sydney aka when we finally saw The Opera House
It almost seems like we are avoiding the big highlights of Sydney doesn’t it? I promise that eventually we did see all those great typical highlights of Sydney. The Blue Mountains, where we headed on our second day, is also on the tourist path. Usually this kind of thing bothers me, but things become popular … More We Went Down Under!
