Singapore Diary

September 30, 2017

What We Did Day 1: Orchard Rd & Marina Bay Sands Our flights got in around the same time so I rendezvoused with Melissa at the airport and we caught an Uber to the city. My brother was due to meet up with us later that day and since we could only drop our bags off before check-in time, we killed time by wandering around Orchard Rd. I was not used to the humidity, and after spending an all-nighter in…

HONG KONG TRAVEL

Hong Kong Diary

September 15, 2017

What We Did Day 1: Central, Sheung Wan & Lan Kwai Fong Melissa and i have always talked about visiting Hong Kong together, so it was a little surreal when we finally put plans into motion, despite being so spontaneous. Our flight got in at 9am and since we were only allowed to drop our bags off at noon, we took our time and had brunch at our first Michelin-star restaurant at the airport. Unlike Singapore’s humidity, it was that…

MACAU TRAVEL

Less Than 24 Hours In: Macau

August 19, 2017

What We Did We took the Turbojet from the Hong Kong terminal which took about an hour. I remember the journey being pretty rough (worse than turbulence on a plane. i was legit paranoid that the ferry would flip over) so i forced myself to sleep the entire way. I woke up once and saw it being really crazy outside – waves splashing furiously against the window, kids crying – so i forced myself back to sleep before i had…

London Diary

August 5, 2017

So I finally made my way to that part of the world after 26 years. The journey there seemed like forever; travel time itself was 29 hours from Sydney and it took another 6 hours before i could settle in to Portsmouth (where i spent a week). I managed to get a business class upgrade on the flight from Dubai to London (i flew Emirates) and my gosh, the liberation my knees felt when i had so much leg room. And…

Columbia Road Flower Markets

July 12, 2017

It’s no secret that i love flowers. From my weekend flower runs to visiting flower markets around the world, i am indeed that sucker. Which comes as an advantage for the boyf – we had a major argument once and he sent me a bouquet of rainbow roses as an apology, and all was forgiven. When we arrived at the Columbia Road flower markets early one Sunday, i made myself feel like a local. Though you could tell otherwise by…

FRANCE TRAVEL

Less Than 24 Hours In: Paris

July 9, 2017

I decided to surprise the boyf with tickets for a day trip to Paris on our monthsary, given how hard he has been studying over the past 2 months we were incommunicado. I used to have this obsession with the Eiffel Tower in my younger years (that obsession has now transitioned to the aurora) so i was pretty excited to see it for the first time, especially since it was with the boyf. We only had 6hours to look around…
