Travel-diary: Red Square, Moscow

Hello from Moscow! It’s been raining a lot when we arrived, unfortunately we chose a damp, drizzly and cold summer day to go to Red Square at the heart of the city. BUT it was pretty much worth it. 80% of the architecture here have that Turkish/Middle Eastern influence, or perhaps it is the otherContinue reading “Travel-diary: Red Square, Moscow”

Travel-diary: Asians in Munich

Touched down on the third largest city in Germany, the host city of the 1972 Summer Olympics, with the cutest city motto: München mag dich, which literally means Munich loves you. On the first day, we had lunch at Dachau Station, KZ-Gedenkstätte, in which our Döner (kebab) came in colossal proportions! Our stop where we touched downContinue reading “Travel-diary: Asians in Munich”

Travel-diary: Milano (II)

A 6-hour journey on foot in Milan as a solo explorer armed with just my camera and a cup of Caffe Shakerato Sights and sounds of a bustling Italian city. Beautiful.

Travel-diary: Naviglio grande Milano

Traveling is indeed a discovery of the self – I’ve learnt that shopping is no fun when there’s so much sightseeing and exploration to do! While everyone else was at Serravalle (designer outlet), I took to exploring on my own. Armed with a fedora, and a city map and my batman suit, I was determined toContinue reading “Travel-diary: Naviglio grande Milano”

A Hat Full of Sky

“Why do you go away? So that you can come back. So that you can see the place you came from with new eyes and extra colors. And the people there see you differently, too. Coming back to where you started is not the same as never leaving.” ― Terry Pratchett, A Hat Full of Sky

Psychoanalysis of Strangers

We all derive false impressions upon first sight. I see an old lady with a jewellery pushcart and think how pitiable to be working at her age. She must be terribly in need of money, or perhaps her children have left her. My mind goes wild thinking of possibilities to define her situation. Don’t weContinue reading “Psychoanalysis of Strangers”

A slice of Copenhagen

Officially am the mad Asian girl snapping away with her iPhone, at architecture that citizens of Denmark would have seen all their lives. Here’s a slice of Copenhagen: the streets of Vester Farimagsgade 9 as seen through my eyes. Taking shelter underneath my umbrella in the drizzle proves to be a disadvantage, for my hands wereContinue reading “A slice of Copenhagen”

“I believe in primping at leisure and wearing lipstick. I believe in pink. I believe happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day, and… I believe in miracles.” ― Audrey Hepburn
