[MELBOURNE] oo2. Caffe e Torta

Upon touchdown I had managed to catch a good nights’ sleep (albeit, due to time difference, it was 3am Melbourne time when I finally crashed), and even woke up for hotel breakfast early next morning. Late afternoon, I ventured into the CBD area with hopes of locating Hardware Societe which was further out past Collins Street,Continue reading “[MELBOURNE] oo2. Caffe e Torta”

Island Life: Maldives

Blogging from the island of Samet, Thailand, and I’m dying show y’all pictures of the sun, sand and sea! This would have to wait till I’m back in civilisation. For the moment, my Maldives pictures would have to suffice. Cheers everybody and have a great week ahead! ❤ xoxo, Viktoria Jean

The Secret Rathaus Glockenspiel

Ever wondered what lies behind and inside the famous clock tower of Munich? Well, here’s a glimpse! A cafè/pub/restaurant lies within stone-grey walls, hidden away from the world that is watching the fairy stales spin atop the tower’s clock. xoxo, Viktoria Jean

Turn around, bright eyes

A year ago, I plucked up the courage to go for a job interview. Too much unhappiness and batshit craziness was going on, and I wanted fresh air, a change of life when I could no longer see myself carrying on in that way. I went without any expectations, knowing I wouldn’t be so hard-up evenContinue reading “Turn around, bright eyes”

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”

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”

Sun, sand, sky, sea – recipe for indulgences. And thus the three of us decided to go chasing dolphins in the setting sun! Maldives is indeed the perfect getaway.

And thus our journey toContinue reading “Maldives – Bandos Island Resort”

never underestimate your own magic

Today I started off with a very simple goal: to be the reason behind a stranger’s smile. All I needed to do was simple, but the task itself could range from easy-peasy to downright impossible. But you know what? I saw a whole lot of smiles today that reflected how uncomplicated a simple gesture ofContinue reading “never underestimate your own magic”

suspended in mid-air with no landing in sight

“I have come to accept the feeling of not knowing where I am going. And I have trained myself to love it. Because it is only when we are suspended in mid-air with no landing in sight, that we force our wings to unravel and alas begin our flight. And as we fly, we stillContinue reading “suspended in mid-air with no landing in sight”
