When it comes to travelling, I look for the true-blue local experience. This means living with a local, and living like one. I recently found out about the Airbnb SUPERHOST function and wondered what was the difference between a normal Airbnb place and another which wears the Superhost badge proudly. Thus, I decided to book a superhost when my partner and I had our spontaneous, unplanned grad trip in Auckland. We only booked the accommodation two days before the actual stay and it was the BEST! Here's why staying with an Airbnb super host is the best. Read more to find out how you can earn $25 off your first Airbnb booking.

In my recent quest for perfecting a bowl of udon, I found that it is relatively difficult to make portions just for one person. The udon noodles typically came in packets of three. It is also common, if not compulsory, for Japanese udon recipes to include dashi stock. Being a fan of Korean culture, I improvised a lot from existing Korean udon recipes, taking elements of different ingredients from both Japan and Korea I'm so glad to be bold and adventurous with the ingredients because the flavours came out quite nicely. If you've got some free time over the weekends, why not try some of the following recipes?

Most of us suffer from skin problems in one way or another— enlarged pores, dark circles, blackheads, white heads, pimples, zits, acne, acne scars, wrinkles, dry or oily skin and more. Three weeks ago, I tried the Oxyjet facial at Bellezza Aesthetics' relocated outlet and the results were really good.

Most of us have experienced tucking into nine-course meals at wedding dinners for a table of ten or more— so for three of us to tackle nine thai dishes is definitely no mean feat. We were invited to a tasting session by Daryl, founder of GREAThai. The restaurant caters to the residents who live nearby, but I think their food is worth travelling for. I'm surprised that the restaurant is actually within walking distance from Great World City!
