PLANEWONDER AND HER HAWAIIAN BABYMOON

I’mma do a mad throwback since it’s Thursday!


I scored 2 x free return tickets from Jetstar | #JetstarHappiness to fly to any destination they operated to before I found out I was pregnant last year. Our plan was to travel to Tokyo in March as Francis’ birthday treat, eat our way to the other parts of Japan and more importantly to witness the cherry blossoms in full bloom. Sadly, that plan had to be canned because baby decided to arrive in March!

We did think of still going to Japan for my babymoon, but I couldn’t imagine myself waddling across the Shibuya Crossing and to top it off I was already getting tired pretty quickly at this point albeit being only 5 months pregnant. Oh, and the bigger issue – I wouldn’t be able to eat all the sushi and sashimi that I have always dreamed of having over there.

So.. We decided on… Hawaii.

It was the perfect destination getaway (for a whale) although we were there the previous year for a wedding. We stayed at the Moana Surfrider, A Westin Resort & Spa, Waikiki Beach where we had direct access to the beach but spent most of our time poolside because it was pretty impossible for me to get into a comfortable position. I totally get what beached whales feel like the poor things.

We didn’t realise until we got there that we were flying out on Black Friday. We thought we were going to be losing out but there were tons of sales leading up to it so it still did some decent damage to our bank account. Most of the stuff we got was for baby anyway (which she would grow out of within the next minute – not even exaggerating) so it was all good! It was a good thing we hadn’t started shopping before then for her because we managed to get everything on crazy discounts. My massive suitcase was filled with her stuff as I came with barely nothing thinking I would be shopping for myself. Boy was I wrong. Ala Moana Shopping Centre never disappoints – even if I had to miss out on shopping for myself!

Cafe Iyasume is a must when you’re in Waikiki. We practically had to have Spam Musubi every single day! It would be a sin not to have it when you’re there.

Okay. That is all. Wishing we were back in Hawaii right now!

Planewonder does Hong Kong

Landed in Chek Lap Kok Airport (very) early on Friday but it already feels like I’ve been here for about 2 weeks despite only being here for 3 days in reality.

Not your typical Hong Kong view

I spent the first 8 hours on Friday working from home before it was time to head over to the Sheung Wan for dinner.

Mrs. Pound was a speakeasy restaurant chosen for our night time feed.

It’s always a treat being able to catch up with good friends in a different city, especially when nothing has been planned and when you find other out-of-towners visiting at the same time!

This speakeasy bar slash restaurant provided us with good food and the perfect setting that housed our good vibes for the evening.

Post dinner, we headed to Racks MDB to have a couple of drinks after dinner (as we do) before I hopped over to a club opposite called Tazmania Ballroom for a bit of Hip Hop and R&B. The rest of the night was pretty much a fun-filled blur.

Woke up the next day and spent the entire day with my nieces and nephew before night time repeated itself. We had dinner at Ho Lee Fook; another go to whenever I visit Hong Kong. Food was on point. No surprise really.

Just order everything you can read on the menu. Trust a girl who likes to eat.
e.g. Me.

We then bar hopped until we ended up at Bungalow.

The night was fun as is every other night out about in Hong Kong is.

I spent the rest of my trip in Hong Kong focusing on work from home as any other #digitalnnomad working remotely would do before packing up and flying to my next city, Kuala Lumpur.
