Widely considered to be the sexiest hotel in Singapore right now, The South Beach Hotel is definitely impressive — having been designed by Philippe Starck with tons of design elements peppered throughout the property. The gym, however, doesn’t quite get the same design treatment. It’s pretty straight forward with the latest gym equipment including treadmills, ellipticals and bicycles… Read More Hotel gym: The South Beach, Singapore
For whatever reason, you don’t really ever see self-serve salad bars in Hong Kong. I can imagine why — hygiene, messiness, queues, etc. but in Bangkok, they can be found quite readily at the upscale supermarkets like Central Food Hall and Gourmet Food Hall. The one I love most is at Siam Paragon. Just look… Read More Healthy Bangkok: Gourmet Food Hall salad bar at Siam Paragon
When in Bangkok, you’re bound to (over)eat so if you’re looking for a well-equipped gym to work off those calories, it’s worth staying at the Siam Kempinski hotel at Siam Paragon. Located on the hotel’s 8th floor, it’s fresh, clean, large and new. It even has a separate room for aerobics/stretching/yoga so you don’t have to lie… Read More Hotel gym: Siam Kempinski Hotel Bangkok
Since moving to North Point, I had to find another regular spot to run, and with all the busy roads around, there didn’t seem to be too many options. Back in Tin Hau, Victoria Park was right at my doorstep and the Causeway Bay Sports Ground was just a five-minute walk away, but North Point seemed a bit… Read More Running from North Point to Quarry Bay
Spark Fight & Fitness is a new gym in Hong Kong that’s only been opened about three months. Located on top of Top Shop (in the same building as Pure Yoga), it’s quite convenient if you work in Central or Sheung Wan. I swung by earlier this week as part of my Guavapass trial for the… Read More Review: Thai boxing at Spark Fight & Fitness
As one of my favourite hotels in Hong Kong, I can’t believe I’ve never seen its pool or gym before. Until last weekend, at least. We chanced upon it after going to the Conrad and discovering how small and ugly (and shaded) it was, so decided to pop next door and try our luck at… Read More Hotel gym: Island Shangri-la Hong Kong
Another lunch idea in Central — Mano Cafe at L Place has this salad bar where you can stuff your salad box with as much as you can, for just HK$98. For those dining in, this translates to ONE visit to the salad bar (recalling those bygone days of the Pizza Hut salad bar — ahh, memories…). The selection… Read More All you can eat salad at Mano Cafe

It’s been a while since I ate at M&S, but I managed to grab this shrimp salad on-the-go the other day. It’s a small sized salad for when you just need something to keep going, and quite tasty with the accompanying teriyaki sauce. The beans and grains weren’t too heavy (mix of chewy grains and… Read More Shrimp and mixed bean salad at Marks & Spencer
I normally buy all my health foods (like quinoa, cereal, bars etc.) from iHerb.com but I was recently introduced to an Asia-based online health foods store called BerryTime.com. The products on there are a little more ‘advanced’ on the health scale than iHerb.com, which sells all kinds of foods and products — not just healthy… Read More BerryTime giveaway: Win a box of healthy goodies!
