Melissa Hie est une jeune fille qui croque le monde à pleines dents et ça se voit. Passionnée de voyage, de photos et un tantinet gourmande, c'est en 2014, après un roadtrip au Japon, qu'elle décide d'ouvrir son compte Instagram @Girleatworld : une page qui mêle paysages de rêves et nourritures alléchantes. On a envie d'y être.
â?©ð??¯ð??µð?¦ A modern take of the well-loved, fish-shaped Taiyaki from a food market at Fushimi Inari in Kyoto by @op.118. Taiyaki normally contains red bean paste or custard cream, but this parfait one has whipped cream, chocolate pocky stick, green tea paste and red bean paste as well as crunchy cereal inside! Follow @op.118 who is currently touring through Japan. --- On a separate note, I have been refreshing my Japanese knowledge using @iknowjp app which teaches you daily japanese vocabularies on-the-go through fun quizzes and games.

A little clementine ð?? at Shwedagon Pagoda in Yangon ð??²ð??² I know it's crazy, but it is now the last five days of 2015 (!!) I will be posting once a day until December 31st, five of my favorite #GirlEatWorld stories from 2015... Starting with this one from the Myanmar trip I took in January with @sceetheworld. Why clementine? ð?? I was pretty much obsessed with this fruit throughout the trip. They are easy to peel, so sweet and seedless, goes for $1 for half a dozen and there seem to be no shortage of them in each burmese city we visited. It became my go-to snack! Shwedagon Pagoda is believed to be constructed 2,600 years ago and contains relics of four Buddhas. In the modern day, it has become an important political arena for the burmese people. In 1946, it is where General Aung San demanded independence from the British before he was assasinated a year later. In the same place 42 years later, his daughter Aung San Suu Kyi would address half a million crowd to demand democracy from the military regime. The most important thing to remember when visiting this place? Take your shoes AND socks off. You have to go barefoot! ;) ð??£
Happy Australia Day to my aussie friends! ð??¦ð??ºð??? #tbt to that time i nearly got attacked by seagulls in front of Sydney Opera House ð??? That's the authentic Sydney experience!

#latergram Donkey Burger (Lu Rou Huo Shao é©´è??ç«ç?§) at Wangfujing Snack Street in Beijing ð??¨ð??³ It's basically donkey meat served in sesame bun. Another case of blind ordering and pointing around at whatever looks interesting. I had no idea it was donkey meat until i showed a picture to a chinese friend - it tasted like beef! ð??ð??ð?´ In Wangfujing street, there were tons of odd eats - skewers of scorpions, starfish and grubs. I couldn't bring myself to try any of it though, especially when the scorpions were still wriggling around on the skewer ð???
