Smack in the middle of Singapore’s shopping district, Hotel Jen Orchard Gateway offers comfort and relaxation after a long day’s exploring of the Lion City.

PSX17SEA Hands on: Marvel vs Capcom: Infinite (PS4)

August 11, 2017

I’m a massive, massive fan of the Marvel vs Capcom series. It’s almost definitely my most favourite game in the fighting genre.

July 13, 2017

One of the things I love about Taipei, Taiwan, is not just how easy it is to get to places, but the expanse of choices you have to get there. Whether you take a U-bike, walk or just catch the MRT, the city is built to be explored without a car. And along the Tamsui-Xinyi […]
