A Travelling Frog and a Sick King

Posted by Alistair Chiu on

Happy Chinese New Year! Hope you have been having an enjoyable break. I’ve been sick over the past week but am back on my feet now and ready to eat some good family meals! My wife recently introduced me to a new app called Travel Frog, which has been a huge hit amongst younger people in...
