On the road: Western Australia

At last I am able to sit down to type this post. It has been overdue for about 2 weeks. Back from a long hiatus, only to realise WordPress’s format has changed again?? Why can’t I move my pictures anymore? Copy and pasting can be quite a pain in the ass.

After my last trip to Australia, I could not wait to go back again. So my man and I decided to get tickets to Perth, Western Australia. And since he could not get enough of long distance driving, this trip will solely be the two of us with him as the driver. It has been too long since we had a trip just the two of us.

Khao Lak,Similans Islands LOB, Phuket

I’ve just gotten back from a holiday, and i’m suffering from terrible withdrawal symptoms. For some unknown reason, WordPress seemed to have changed their formatting. Can’t say that I’m digging it though.

Anyway, since this was planned this trip with a bunch of divers, its no doubt we will plan this trip centered around diving! Of course, me being a shutterbug, and my other girls being photographers, brace yourself for lotsa photos! This is also gonna be a reeeaalllyy long post.

Boracay: Paradise Found 27Nov- 3rd December 2013

Please excuse my procrastination. I am being held up by school work and Team Fortress 2(whoever plays this, please comment and add me!). Here is the very much awaited Boracay post.

I remember, 2 weeks before I’m bound for Boracay,Typhoon Haiyan hit Philippines. I, like every other traveler, was worried out of my mind on what will become of my trip, since it was on the news that the typhoon did, indeed hit Boracay. I checked Tripadvisor several times, refreshing the page every 5 minutes to see updates on what the other travelers(who were already there) wrote about the situation. I also wrote several emails to the resort that I’m staying, and the staff have been really reassuring, telling me that they have not been really affected except for power outages.

I decided to just YOLO (with wit, since I bought travel insurance just in case. I don’t usually have the habit to buy travel insurance since I would rather spend those extra moolahs on the trip itself.) and go ahead with my trip.

Goodbye 2014, 2015 is my bi**h now

One would agree, that 2014 has been terrible so far, and boy am I glad that its over. Though I have gained many, others have lost greatly. 2014 is for one, the worst year for aviation history, as well as for Malaysia. From MH370 being lost and not found till now, MH17 getting blown up over Ukraine, flooding in Taman Negara, Malaysia and now the AirAsia flight crashing at sea, killing hundreds. The Ebola outbreak has reached a death toll of thousands, followed by Typhoon Hagupit in Phillipines, leaving thousands homeless. I have to be really grateful to Singapore, for being my shelter despite all the resentment and culture dilution.

Much condolences to the families of the victims, my heart goes out to you guys.

However, the new year is coming in less than 24 hours. My company felt that it will be a good idea for all staff to do a short write up of their achievements for the year 2014 and resolutions for 2015, and for me to take on the futile task of creating a yearbook. Cliché much? Baby I know. Resolutions are mostly broken by February. However, I can’t help being sucked into the fun of creating resolutions. So here are mine. Continue reading

Measure life by countries, not by years

I have been playing with the idea of using this blog, not only for ballet and braces, but also for my travels. I am a wanderluster; 100% guilty. I am the type of girl who is willing to spend most of her paycheck on a getaway to some island and come back penniless. Although i do keep a scrap book at home, which is frankly outdated, as I’m lazy, too busy to print photos and stick’em in there, complete with fanciful cutouts from overpriced
coloured/textured paper.

This blog, will not only serve to keep me looking busy at the office, reminded of the experiences and people that I have gained and met, hopefully, it can help other readers too, who are hoping to go to one of those places that I have been as well.

Feel free to comment =)
