Tim Ho Wan

All the talk in Singapore at the moment is of the opening of Tim Ho Wan, a branch of the world’s cheapest Michelin star restaurant. I visited the original outlet of this famous dim sum joint while in Hong Kong three years ago, not long after it opened.







It’s a happy memory indeed, so I thought I would share the entry from my blog at the time.

New Arrival

Welcome to the world to my little boy! He arrived at Thomson Medical Centre here in Singapore on 22nd February.

Needless to say, I won’t be taking on any writing commissions for the next few weeks while I try to figure out just how you juggle working with a toddler and a newborn in the house!

Visual Travel Tours

I recently wrote some walking tours for Visual Travel Tours – the largest provider of professionally produced guided walking and driving tours for mobile phones and other mobile devices. The tours are pretty cool really – you download them onto your mobile phone, and off you go – it’s ┬álike having a friend show you around their home city!


I wrote (and took the photos for) two walking tours – Chinatown and the Colonial District.
