How to Install a French Drain

by @ How to of the Day

A French drain, also called a curtain drain, is made by placing a perforated pipe in a trench that has been filled with gravel. It is a great option if you want to direct surface water away from your home’s foundation to remove surface water or to prevent flooding. Installing a French drain is a simple job that requires a bit of planning and the right materials. Start by picking a location for the drain that is sloped and the right type of pipe. Then, dig the trench for the drain and put the drain in properly so it can direct water away from your home.

5 of SAIGON’S BEST HIDDEN COCKTAIL BARS

by Steven @ The Hungry Suitcase

Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon) is a place of surprises, much of them elusive to first-time visitors with just a few days on the ground. Though a bit challenging at first, Ho Chi Minh City eventually became our favorite city in the world and a base for many of our adventures in the Southeast Asian region. It’s also a pretty great place to go out and grab a drink, whether it’s a Monday or Saturday, Saigon’s music venues, breathtaking rooftop bars, and tiny neighborhood spots are buzzing.

Unlike the more world famous, easy-to-find spots of Bangkok and Shanghai, Saigon is a city of tight neighborhoods which unveil themselves only to those intrepid enough to explore the tiniest, faintest lines on the map. Saigon doesn’t have a Times Square or Pudong. It’s a megacity comprised of small, distinct districts and alleys. Perch ... Read More »

If a city strikes your fancy, rent an apartment for a month and stick around for awhile.

Another advantage of worldwide Internet networking is that it allows us to exchange short-term apartments without going through an agent or company. Check the New York City craigslist sublet page and you’ll find plenty of Parisians happy to exchange their Left Bank apartment for a little temporary stepping stone on the Upper West Side.

The 5 Best Night Markets in Taipei

Taipei is inarguably one of the top street food cities in the world. Taiwan is known as the land of snacks: they have literally invented and re-invented genre after genre of snack food over the years. From pearl tea to fried chicken, the Taiwanese are all about inventing and perfecting the ultimate snack foods. Think Chinese-influenced foods created with the ingenuity and dedication to perfection that (you would think) only the Japanese would bring. While Taipei isn’t quite as famous with local Taiwanese as Tainan for their snack culture, they’ve got it covered and will most likely be your first stop in Taiwan. The sheer volume of street food options available alone are enough but, matched with the quality and price of the food available on the streets, it’s pretty much unbeatable.

The Week That Was – #35

by Little Grey Box @ Little Grey Box

A look at the week that was and a little insight into the #bloglife, sharing things I just can’t share anywhere else! Highlights of the week It has felt like things started to get back to normal this week. Most people returned to work and I’ve had more emails come through, which is always a good thing. This week for me has been a week of getting things done and doing things I have wanted and needed to do! Everyone went out on Saturday, leaving me home alone with a box of semi-permanent pink hair colour. I love putting colours in my hair but I get a bit nervous sometimes that other people won’t like it, so I don’t do it. With my newfound ‘I don’t care’ attitude (read last week’s TWTW if you missed it) I had no reservations doing it. It didn’t take long at all and was actually pretty easy. Unlike past attempts, I actually took my time doing it and gave it my best ‘professional’ effort. It turned out amazing and I loved it! While I didn’t do it for anyone else, everyone I came across said they loved it too. My grandma, neighbours, friends – it was [...]

How to Open a Door with a Credit Card

If you forgot your key again and wish you could get into your home without it, you may be able to use your credit card to do so. Just keep in mind that this technique only works on doors that have a simple knob lock with a spring-latch or a slanted-latch. To open your door, wiggle a card into the gap between the door and the door frame. If this doesn’t work, resort to an alternative solution.

8 Easy ways to beat the back-to-work blues 

8 Easy ways to beat the back-to-work blues 

by Little Grey Box @ Little Grey Box

The end of the year brings much fun and excitement. We get to take time away from work, maybe go on holidays, spend time with loved ones, eat our favourite foods and completely disconnect from our day-to-day routine. It’s a much-needed opportunity to rest, recharge and refresh. Sadly, the holidays always come to an end and, sooner or later, we have to go back to work. Coming back to the office after such a great time away, staring down the barrel of another 12 months of work, can be overwhelming. To help you survive your return to the workplace after an epic festive season, here are 8 easy ways you can beat the back-to-work blues. 1. Start planning your next holiday This is my personal favourite suggestion on this list! While there’s a good chance you may not financially be ready to start splashing out money on a holiday post-festive season, that doesn’t mean you can’t start planning. Go to your favourite travel agent and get some brochures for inspiration, set the wallpaper on your phone and computer to your next holiday destination and pin a few photos, postcards or holiday inspiration around your desk. Rather than focusing on being [...]

How to Reduce Radon

How to Reduce Radon

by @ How to of the Day

Radon is a colourless, odourless radioactive gas that naturally occurs in the soil due to the breakdown of uranium. It is a leading cause of lung cancer, so it’s important to contact your state radon office to obtain a test kit or find a professional to test the radon levels for you. While the best thing to do is to install a professional radon reduction system, you can take some preliminary steps by sealing cracks and openings in the building as well as increasing the ventilation.

How to Block Promoted Tweets on Twitter on iPhone or iPad

by @ How to of the Day

This wikiHow teaches you how to block promotional tweets on the Twitter app for the iPhone and iPad. Promoted tweets are paid advertisement tweets and while it's not possible to block all ads in the official Twitter app, you can hide specific individual tweets, block accounts that promote tweets, as well as opt out of personalized ads. Opting-out of personalized ads won't remove ads from Twitter, but it will prevent Twitter from collecting data to target you with personalized ads. The only way to block all Twitter ads is to use a third-party app that doesn't contain ads—but most of those apps aren't free.

Beautiful photos. I went to Iceland in December, and would love to go back in the summer months to see the contrast. Since we went in the middle of winter and didn't hire a car, there was so much we didn't have chance to see. The Fjadrargljufur Canyon looks breathtaking and so huge.

25 THINGS TO KNOW BEFORE TRAVELING IN THAILAND

by Steven @ The Hungry Suitcase

Thailand, with over 26 million foreign entries in 2016, can be a very touristic place to visit. By some accounts, 20% of the Thai GDP is based on tourism (worldwide nations average about 10%). Thailand is often an entry point for all of Asia, a constant revolving door of tourists on short or extended trips. We’re writing this article to help you avoid getting your hand caught in that often dangerous door.

Thailand is a country that can live up to its high expectations and reputation. It really can be paradise. On the other hand, it can be a disappointing place filled with drunken pub crawlers, tourist scams, empty promises and subpar made-for-tourists versions of local dishes. Pad thai made with instant noodles? You’ll find it all over Phuket and Koh Samui. If you venture past the tourists districts, the food ... Read More »

25 THINGS TO KNOW BEFORE TRAVELING IN VIETNAM - The Hungry Suitcase


The Hungry Suitcase

Thailand enjoys a 50% return rate for foreign tourists. In contrast, Vietnam only pulls back 5% of visitors.Personally, I feel that Vietnam walks all over Thailand in almost every travel category except beaches. So, why do so many people have such bad experiences and never return to Vietnam?I hope the list I have made below helps out first-time visitors. It may seem cynical and anti-Vietnamese. It’s not. I love this country; I want you to love it, too. I’d just like to alert travelers to beware of the common first-time mistakes that may sour their experience of the local people and the country overall.Do your homework, know what to expect, and this is the most rewarding country in Southeast Asia to explore.Here goes:-1-TAKE YOUR VISA SERIOUSLY, VERY SERIOUSLY INDEEDYes, it seems like common sense, but I have seen tourists turned ...

‘A STOP AT WILLOUGHBY’: THE TWILIGHT ZONE EPISODE THAT EXPLORES OUR NEED TO TRAVEL

by Steven @ The Hungry Suitcase

“a place around the bend where he could jump off”

Created during a time (1959-1964) when American television seemed eerily clean and domestic, The Twilight Zone challenged viewers to examine a possibility of uncertainty beyond the comforts and assumptions of contemporary life. It was my favorite thing on TV. One episode in particular always stuck with me- A Stop at Willoughby. It brings up questions. How could such a ‘successful’ man working in a New York tower and living in an upscale suburb be so miserable? Why would he dream of escaping to a sleepy village where the streets have no name and the children wear overalls and go fishing?

A STOP AT WILLOUGHBY is the story of an advertising executive named Gart. Gart feels endless pressure from his pugnacious boss and his minion-like coworkers at his New York City office during ... Read More »

How to Treat Type 2 Diabetes Naturally

How to Treat Type 2 Diabetes Naturally

by @ How to of the Day

Type 2 diabetes often begins with an insulin resistance, which causes the pancreas to overwork itself and eventually start producing less insulin. This low production of insulin can cause the blood sugar levels in your body to drop. There is no quick cure or reversal for type 2 diabetes, but you can take steps to make living with it manageable. Natural treatments like following a balanced, clean diet and exercising regularly can help to keep your blood sugar under control. You can also try taking plant-based supplements to regulate your insulin levels naturally, though you should still take diabetes medication if it is prescribed to you. If you experience any adverse effects while taking supplements or your medication, speak to your doctor right away.

How to End a Toxic Relationship

How to End a Toxic Relationship

by @ How to of the Day

Toxic relationships can feel like you're lugging a huge sack up a hill: the longer you try to do it, the heavier the burden becomes. Once you realize you're in a toxic relationship, take steps to relieve yourself of that burden by ending the relationship. Be upfront about what you want, so the person clearly understands that you want to end things. Set limits so you don't get pulled back in. Then, care for your emotional health and well-being so that you can have healthier relationships in the future.

A look at the week that was and a little insight into the #bloglife, sharing things I just can’t share anywhere else! Highlights of the week Happy New Year! Last we spoke, I was wrapping things up for 2017 and getting ready to enjoy a little bit of time off. Christmas came and went quickly, as it always does. I made a big family dinner on Christmas Eve and found myself in bed early. Both Matt and I woke up early and excited on Christmas morning, bouncing out of bed before 6am, doing our best not to wake my sister and cousins, despite how much we really wanted to. We sat together and opened presents then had breakfast together. Afterward, we joined Matt’s family for a delicious Christmas lunch. In true Aussie Christmas style, the kids were in and out of all the pool all day, there was plenty of delicious food and yummy drinks, all topped off with an insanely huge and absolutely amazing pavlova. It was a great Christmas. When I was younger I was a little too obsessed with having the perfect, epic New Year’s Eve. Now, it’s far more low-key and far more enjoyable – a Netflix [...]

How to Have an Easy Labor

by @ How to of the Day

Giving birth can be an intense, but rewarding experience. You may wonder how you can make your labor less strenuous so you can enjoy it. Do exercises that will strengthen your legs, pelvis, and hips early in your pregnancy so you have the stamina for labor. You can also get support and information on labor from your doctor, midwife, or doula so you know what to expect. Then, when the time comes, focus on staying comfortable and relaxed during labor so your birthing experience goes smoothly.

10 THINGS I CAN’T TRAVEL WITHOUT

by Steven @ The Hungry Suitcase

Recently I’ve taken a four-month break off of travel to settle into a comfortable life in a quiet town. It’s been nice, mostly.

I do miss packing and unpacking the bags. I miss tossing away ripped up socks, giving away paperback books, and moving what’s left of my big shampoo into a small little shampoo thingy.

Some things are essential to have packed and ready to grab when I’m on the road. I will not include the obvious things like a camera, computer, passport, etc. These following are the little home run hitters that are easy to forget about, but always needed:

SIEM REAP’S 10 BEST BARS: CLASSY, HIDDEN DIVES JUST OUTSIDE OF ANGKOR

Every year I find myself in Siem Reap, Cambodia for a week. It’s inevitable, and always enjoyable.

Angkor Wat is, along with Bagan in Myanmar, one of the two most spectacular temple sites in Asia, if not the world. I’ve come back again and again with friends, or by myself. Although lately I barely spend time in the temples of Angkor Wat, I love the cafe and bar scene of nearby Siem Reap, a charming little French colonial town adjacent to Angkor that now serves as the tourist-amenity center of the region. Though a tourist town, it’s far from a tourist trap. There is something about the clear blue sky, slow clouds and that long twilight that I love here. And, there’s the drinks.

How to Wash Toms Shoes

How to Wash Toms Shoes

by @ How to of the Day

Toms shoes are comfortable and fun to wear, so they're probably going to get dirty from a lot of wear. You can wash them by hand using a simple cleaning solution, or you can pop them in your washing machine. Let them air dry – the dryer can ruin the fabric. If you need to freshen up the leather soles, mix up your own deodorizing powder.

Why You Should Give Bangkok a Chance – A Guide to Beautiful Bangkok

How to Order Coffee in Vietnam Like a Local

by Bill @ The Hungry Suitcase

Vietnam is a country that runs on coffee. There is a cafe on just about every block in Saigon and Hanoi and they’re packed most of the day with a mix of locals leisurely sipping away enjoying the day and others grabbing a quick fix on their way to wherever they’re headed. The cafe culture in Saigon is why it’s one of our favorite cities in the world. To see the list of our favorite Saigon cafes, check out our post on it.

Coffee is brewed differently in Vietnam. It’s sort of a mix between the French press and pourover methods and despite producing great coffee, it’s surprisingly “low tech”.
