This world is all kinds of amazing20131003-022815.jpgIt’s positively exhilarating to know that the beauty of Maldives is right at your doorstep
Complete with sea breeze and utter, remote peace.

One of my favourite spots:
The patio to lounge around, to watch the sea from a safe distance

Even the visitor lodge is so tastefully built with an air of zen.
None shall disturb your peace.20131003-023935.jpg
My room was closest to the lodge! Super safe and all, I didn’t feel scared to stay in that hugeass room at all.

Can’t stop reiterating how much I love the Maldives.
How could anyone not fall to her charms?

Does anyone wanna come scuba-dive here with me?

Travel-diary: Melbourne

Perhaps I’m not too much of a winter person. Hiding from the incessant drizzle in the heated warmth of the hotel just shows what a coward I am!

Checked in at Rendezvous Melbourne in the evening. Dinner was at Nando’s, before bumming with Rena and watching Running Man till we almost dropped dead from laughing and fatigue.

Breakfast-ed at Straits Cafe the next morning, then took a tram up to Victoria Market with Zen and Sean.
The market is where  organic fruits, sausages, raw meat and local dairy products are rumoured to be the freshest and most sought-after.

Bought a bag of my favourite macadamia nuts and as usual, tasted the local coffee! (Still wildly in love with Italian Caffe Shakerato)

Also nibbled on some local chocolates, ribs and sausages… Has it been scientifically proven that taste buds do get frozen in the cold? Because sadly, mine were practically in winter hibernation.photo 2 (2)

Melbourne is high on my list of places admired for its serenity 🙂
