Feasting and trying out the local foods are a must when we travel as we get to taste the finest of their local cuisine.

The kids are not really into spicy food but us adults love the selection we have in Thailand, Indonesia and Korea.

Hong Kong and China are countries that we do visit very often as R’s family lives in Hong Kong we go back to visit his friends and relatives.  The kids too love Hong Kong as it is an eating and shopping paradise where shops are open till very late.
