Voyager aux quatre coins du monde, c'est le pied. Bouffer local des trucs trop bons qui dégoulinent de gras et qui croustillent de sucre, c'est l'idée que je me fais de la vie après la mort. Et bah tu prends l'un, tu rajoutes l'autre et tu prends des jolies photos, et ça te donne un compte Instagram merveilleux pour te régaler les mirettes quand tu t'ennuies au taf.

    Today marks one year of @girleatworld (more on this below! ??). This is a strawberry ice cream ? at Karlskirche, an 18th century baroque church located on the south side of the Vienna, Austria. Vienna is such a fascinating city, full of arts and music but the most interesting thing has got to be that their water comes straight from the alps (like evian from tap!). Vienna is also where i learned that the architecture style i like is called "baroque". Exactly a year ago on July 31, 2013 I took off on my first solo backpacking trip from Singapore to Europe, where I took my first girleatworld picture. I visited Germany, Austria, Czech Republic, Netherlands and Belgium. I didn't actually call it "@girleatworld" until this past May, but basically i've been doing this for a year! ?? #vienna #austria #karlskirche #icecream #cones

    Happy Monday! Missing this Hello Kitty donut at the organized chaos of the shibuya crossing in Tokyo ???. The Shibuya "scramble" crossing is well known for people watching and a must visit while in Tokyo. When the traffic lights turn red, pedestrians would pour out from all sides and meet in the middle of the intersection. I find it very calming to watch from afar. Also, Hachiko statue is in one of the corners of this intersection! --- I've been spending some time re-learning Japanese through iknow.jp and I love it so much! To my fellow ??? learners, i highly recommend checking out iknow.jp @iknowjp to review your kanji, listening skills and vocabularies. It makes the learning process super fun compared to using flash cards! However, this app will not teach Japanese from scratch - you have to use this in conjunction of a text book since they do not teach you grammar. I wish apps like this existed when I was learning Japanese in college! You can also learn other language like Chinese and English for SAT learners #iKnowjp

    Happy mid-autumn festival! ??? This is an important holiday celebrated in many east asian culture, namely Chinese (Moon festival), Vietnamese (Children's day), Japanese (Tsukimi - literal translation of "Moon Viewing") and Korean (Chuseok / Hangawi). Though the name differs across countries and cultures, it seems to be originated from friends and family gathering for celebration of full harvest moon - hence the mooncake! In chinese tradition, the mooncake is a delicacy offered at celebration of mid-autumn. These days the mooncake is offered even for business clients which has resulted in fancy mooncakes made by high-end hotel brands. In Singapore, a good mooncake can cost anywhere between $52-$68 for a box of 8! You also have to be careful when eating these since they are deceptively high in calories due to the rich filling (normally red bean, lotus or salted egg yolk) There are many variations of legends associated with this festival but my favorite has got to be the one with a selfless rabbit sacrificing itself for others. The story goes: Once upon a time, three deities from the Moon? transformed themselves into poor old men???? and went begging for food on earth from a monkey?, a fox? and a rabbit?. The monkey and fox gave them food, but the rabbit was poor and did not have anything to give. So instead, the rabbit decided to throw itself into a fire? so that the old men can have food. The deities were so touched by the rabbit's selfless act that they let the rabbit live in the Moon Palace with them. Might sound like a crazy story, but apparently "Rabbit that lives in the moon" is observed in many east asian and aztec culture, resulting in variations of folklores that tells of a rabbit and the moon. This is believed to have originated from markings on the moon that resembles a rabbit, which can be seen during the full moon. You can search for "Moon Rabbit" if you are interested! ???????????

    ??? Too cute to eat!!! When i saw this Hello Kitty dim sum featured by @danielfooddiary, my first reaction was "I MUST HAVE IT NOW ?". So, off I went to the Hello Kitty restaurant which offers tons of Kitty-themed dishes! Traditionally, this is Liu Sha Bao aka Salted Egg Yolk custard bun - which is a popular part of dim sum and best known for the liquid salted egg yolk filling which is sweet and full of flavors. Many people complained about the food quality here, but I think they have improved since the first opening a few months ago. You shouldn't go here expecting for the best dimsum (especially in Hong Kong), but if you are a Hello Kitty fan you MUST go! #toocutetoeat The Dapper collection by @danielwellingtonwatches launches today! It's men's watch but I love the deep blue hands. Use "dwGirleatsworld" for a further 20% discount at their website! Code has been extended to 30th October ??

    #latergram More weird meats I ate during this past trip! This is a kangaroo canapé while overlooking Uluru during sunset at the Sounds of Silence dinner that @yhaaustralia sent me to. I'm going to remember this dinner experience for many years to come. How does Kangaroo taste like? Beef! A very lean beef. The animal is so synonymous with Australia that most people probably think Australians ride kangaroos to work, but it's actually not very common to see a wild one in bigger cities like Sydney or Melbourne. I saw a ton of them in the Northern Territories though, especially while camping at Kakadu and Litchfield! One of of our camping grounds were at a farm in Mt Bundy. At night when the light has turned off, we'd hear a single rapid crunching sound on the grass. I was creeped out until we saw one hopping across the entrance of our tent and we realized it was just wild kangaroos hopping about our tent! It is also not very common for Kangaroo meat to be consumed in bigger cities... until recently that is. I was told by my local friends that kangaroo meat has started making its way to grocery stores. Kangaroos are breeding machine - they start at roughly 2 years of age with each pregnancy lasting about 18 months, though kangaroos have the ability to "freeze" embryo development until her pouch is ready / unoccupied by previous Joey (a Kangaroo baby). They breed so fast that a Kangaroo mommy would constantly have one in her belly, one Joey in her pouch and another young one running about. Overpopulation in Kangaroos causes overgrazing and problems with farmers, thus consuming Kangaroos might actually be beneficial. Plus they are cheaper than beef. Last Kangaroo fact: a group of Kangaroos is called a "mob". ???? #SeeAustralia #RestaurantAustralia #NTAustralia #RedCentreNT #ExploreUluru #Kangaroo #GirlEatAustralia

    Just in time for Myanmar trip next week - This #WeEatWorld by my friend @nycars shows the magical view that puts Bagan on my "must visit" list. Follow @nycars for awesome - and punny - cars! As for the caption, i'll keep it true to @nycars' words: "It's taken while travelling in a hot air balloon over Bagan, which is located in central Myanmar along the Ayeyarwady River. I would love to see a hot air balloon chase in a movie one day, it would take around 5 hours. But there's certainly something very peaceful about drifting with no sound as the sun rises over this incredible place. The large structure is the Sulamani Temple, built in 11th century and one of around 3000 temples in the area. The puff was Myanmar street food, and was filled with peanut and sugar and was quite disgusting. My tip, avoid eating dubious street food before getting on a hot air balloon. Please enjoy, and please go visit Bagan. It's incredible." (I'll still try the street food tho :P)

    ??? Milk & Cereal Ice Cream while waiting for sunset at Venice Beach in Los Angeles. That moment where every little corner and palm trees were bathed in warm golden sun rays - I wouldn't have it any other way. The cereal ice cream, which I chose to top with fruity pebbles, was a great nostalgic childhood flavor to pair with this perfect moment. I used to live in LA. I went to high school in a suburban city an hour away from here, before spending time for my undergrad at @ucla. You could say this is where most of my formative years were spent. I left LA ten years ago and haven't been back since - until last month. Coming back to a place you used to know was a strange feeling. The time I spent here had a strong influence of the person I've become, but so much has changed that LA felt so foreign to me. And yet, there are little bits and pieces that stays the same - Nostalgia is such a bittersweet feeling. I may not live in LA anymore, and I may have changed as a person, but this place will forever have a special place in my heart ?? . How about you? What's your special nostalgic place? #shotoniphone #iphonexsmax #icecream #cereal #? #venicebeach #veniceboardwalk #california #losangeles #? #aftersicecream

    Oyaki (???) at Matsumoto Castle during my recent road trip to Nagano. Oyaki is a Japanese savory dumpling, traditionally stuffed with roasted local vegetables - that's what the three characters on the Oyaki means. The one I had was leek, mushroom and potatoes. Apples and other fruits are also commonly used to make the sweet version! Oyaki is super popular and widely available in Nagano. It's a great representation of the prefecture - Oyaki skin is made from buckwheat flour. Due to the terrain of Nagano prefecture, it is difficult to plant rice. Instead, soba (buckwheat) became the main produce of Nagano. I got this Oyaki from the entrance of Matsumoto Castle - you can't miss it! Over the past few months, I have been building my TripAdvisor profile by creating Trips from my vacations. It's such a useful feature for sharing my favorite spots with friends! I love that it makes my trip planning so much easier - it incorporates everything we love about TripAdvisor (reviews, maps and photos), so you can easily research which spot you want to go and save those spots to personalize your own Trip. You can also invite friends to collaborate on the Trip, which is great for group vacations! Visit my TripAdvisor profile at https://www.tripadvisor.com.sg/Profile/GirlEatWorld to see Trips I have created. TripAdvisor has recently started a Singapore Instagram account at @tripadvisorsg - follow them for something exciting launching in December! #TripAdvisorSG #TripAdvisorTrips #sponsored #shotoniphone #iphone11promax #matsumoto #nagano #? #?? #japan #japanesefood #matsumotocastle #oyaki #???

    ? Most of us know this fuzzy green fruit as Kiwi from New Zealand, but did you know that they are not actually native from New Zealand? The fruits actually originated from China, and was brought and planted here in 1906. This is why they are first known as Chinese gooseberry, then briefly called "melonette", and eventually renamed to "Kiwifruit" for marketing purposes. However, it is New Zealand that developed the first commercially viable Kiwifruit and developed the export markets, creating the demand for the fruit that exists today. In New Zealand, the term "Kiwi" could refer to the native bird that is the national symbol of the country, or used as a nickname for people who are from New Zealand. For me personally Kiwi was such an exotic fruit. I saw and had it for the first time when I was 10 years old. I remember being so curious at this weird fuzzy fruit that are bright green on the inside. But I loved that beautiful seed pattern on the cross section of the fruit. In the background you can see Lake Marian, an alpine lake at Fiordland National Park. ? Probably the most beautiful hike I have ever done in my life. #shotoniphone #shotonmoment #girleatworld #kiwi #newzealand #lakemarian #kiwifruit

    I just got back from Phuket! I saw this cool-looking Mangosteen Gelato in the #girleatworld hashtag by @eiffelyoo and I just *had* to go find it myself! Mangosteen, the national fruit of Thailand, is often referred to as "Queen of Fruits" and prized for its sweet and sour juicy flesh. And if you ever eat the real Mangosteen fruit, be careful of the purple juice that comes out from the thick skin! It contains tannin and can permanently stain clothes. When we think of Phuket, the immediate picture that came to mind is the island with blue water and white sand beach. But I found a different side of Phuket in the old town. I didn’t expect to learn so much history, thai-chinese culture and the colorful shophouses. I've written about my Old Town Phuket experience in my blog, which you can find the link to in my profile above ???? More from Phuket to come soon! PS: you can find this Gelato at China Inn - along with other super cool realistically shaped fruit gelatos by @thongdeegelato #shotoniphone #girleatworld #mangosteen #visitthailand #thailand #lostinthailand #amazingthailand #queenoffruits #phuket #oldtownphuket
