Hello friends and readers!
I’m flying back to Asia tomorrow for 2 weeks and am ecstatic to go back to some of my favorite cities. Please let me know if you have any recommendations of places to go, bars to try, and new eats I have yet to explore! I’m sure these cities have changed a lot since the couple years I’ve been back so I’d appreciate any and all tips and suggestions.
Have a wonderful and fabulous New Year! 365 pages down, which means it’s going to be a new chapter soon–thank you for reading and supporting my blog this year!
Here’s a quick round up of my year so far in pictures:
the LUNCH LADY! her amazing broth and noodles are worth the trek to Vietnam!
eating, with minimal meditating, through South Asia with my partner in crime Mizuha!

Strolling through Chatuchak market for some street eats
Shopping for Mizuha and I’s cooking class in Bangkok with Silom Cooking School
