Miss Poehine: Tahiti’s Transgender Pageant

Tahiti has a strong “rae-rae” or transgender culture. There are no known or official LGBT groups in Tahiti because there’s simply no need for it. Not only is gender equality high, but the acceptance of homosexuality and transgender(ism) is in the culture. Many historic versions explain that it was the Tahitian culture long ago to […]

The World’s Cheapest Michelin Star Restaurant Made me Hangry

One of the things I got really excited about going to Hong Kong was Tim Ho Wan. I love dim sum, and the best dim sums I’ve ever had were all in Hong Kong (regular ones like from Maxim’s). So when I heard that a dim sum restaurant in Hong Kong had been awarded a […]

Harbour View room at Kowloon Shangri-la

Hotel Review: Kowloon Shangri-la Hong Kong
