We are off to the US as well as South America. We begin our trip in NYC where we will be spending time with friends. From there, we visit Cuba for the very first time and immerse ourselves in a new culture. We finish in my husband’s hometown, San Francisco, to spend time with family. Of course, all destinations will be peppered with lots of yummy food spots and some Christmas shopping to prepare for the holiday festivities.

Tel-Aviv. I have been wanting to see this ancient civilisation, not only as the place of Christ’s [birth], but also where some of history’s most accomplished men come from. Exciting!
I always look forward to spending Christmas in Japan, especially Niseko with my whole family. I love the white fluffy snow, tempura, and the yummy Japanese Beef. I also like snow fights with my brothers. I am trying to learn how to ski but my favourite snow activity is snow tubing, which I can play the whole day with my mummy and daddy. I am so excited! Counting down the days to the Christmas holidays!

The whole family is off to Japan. My side of the family and Z’s parents travel together as one during the holiday season. It has become our tradition to celebrate post-Christmas and New Year’s in Japan since the kids really look forward to a white Christmas. We’ve been going there for the past four years and each time is a different experience. This year, it’s Tokyo first then on to our favourite Niseko. Our children love the white powdery snow—they enjoy skiing, cross-country snowmobile, snowball fights, and a whole lot of snow activities. We are also including Takayama in our itinerary this year. It’s a quaint, low-key, and rustic town with beautiful scenery. It’s actually our second time to visit Takayama and we are excited to bring the whole family back again. Looking forward to the Hida beef which Takayama is famous for!

Most likely New York since December 25 is the first anniversary of us getting married in our favourite city. It’s also the first year that we can make a tradition out of it—meaning we can go to different cities each year to celebrate our anniversary. London, too, because I want to see my friend Rachel Anne Go in Hamilton! Then, for New Year’s, we will be in Amanpulo.
