Germany 2016

January 7th, 2017 Filed Under: travels 2 Comments

Don’t mention Germany to me. EVER. Just kidding.

We missed our train to Germany and my wallet was not happy about it. We had to buy tickets again, obviously and those tickets were goddamn expensive I could have bought myself a brand new YSL wallet. But life goes on yadaaa yadaaa.

We stayed at Frankfurt and had a day trip to Heidelberg. Our first stop in Heidelberg was the castle that was built in 1214. Fun fact: the castle has this arch which, according to our tour guide, was erected overnight. It was a surprise birthday gift from Elector Frederic V to his wife Elisabeth Stuart. MORAL OF THE STORY: GET YOU A GUY WHO CAN BUILD YOU AN ARCH OVERNIGHT. Hahaha! After visiting the castle, we went around the old town which was very beautiful. It felt like we were in a movie.

2016

January 1st, 2017 Filed Under: mary 0 Comments

We can collectively agree that 2016 wasn’t that nice. I mean, we have that president, most of the people on the internet *COUGHS LOUDLY* believe false news, Trump is the president of the United States, One Direction are still on their break etc etc.

But looking back, I realised that 2016 was alright in my books. It was literally the go with the flow year – a number of unplanned things happened. When 2016 started, I didn’t know I’ll be in Greece or London or I’ll be handling a fucking big client. Life is full of surprises sometimes, innit?

Here are some of the good things that happened in 2016:

1. Being able to travel anytime I want. I have visited seven (eight, if you count the layover in Qatar!) this year and I actually managed to go outside Asia!

  • Japan trip with the Melewi team and experiencing my first snow (-20 degrees, y’all. It’s fun… sometimes)
  • Annual South Korea trip with Ms Steph. South Korea will always be in my heart just like how Harry is always in Louis’ heart <3
  • Paris, Germany, and Greece (I’ll do a post about Greece, I swear! Please wait for it.)
  • Taiwan trip
  • London, UK. YOU, GUYS! I’ve always wanted to go to London (duh, One Direction) and I still cannot believe it happened this year. SOMEBODY PLEASE PINCH ME THIS IS NOT REAL LIFE. (I’ll do a post about this too!)

Paris 2016

November 13th, 2016 Filed Under: travels 0 Comments

I never thought I’ll find myself in Europe this year. Europe was never part of the plan. Well, at least for 2016. This year was supposed to be about Japan, South Korea, and Taiwan only. I even got broke after my trip to South Korea. I told myself no more. Time out. Stop. BUT THEN AGAIN, LIFE WILL JUST SURPRISE YOU. So yeah, during the last week of August, I found myself on a plane en route to Paris.

Can I just say that I will never be a fan of long haul flights. I forgot how bad they are and to make things worse, I was sick during our flight to Paris. It was so bad I wanted the pilot to do an emergency landing for me. I kept on going to the loo to cry cause, as weird as it sounds, crying made me feel better. Anyway, shoutout to the grandma who took care of me. You the real MVP.

We arrived in Paris the afternoon of Aug 30. Since I was not feeling well, I spent the whole day sleeping. So if anyone of y’all will ask me what I did in Paris, my answer is I SLEPT AND THE EIFFEL TOWER COULD WAIT!
