[THAILAND] o17. AYUTTHAYA – OF RECLINING BUDDHAS AND WISHING WELLS

Following a seafood-induced food coma and a brief exposure to Thai Buddhist rituals at renowned Wat Phanan Choeng, our local Thai friends took us on yet another cultural tour – the Temple of the Reclining Buddha, also known as Wat Lokkayasutharam. At this point it would be useful to note there are more than 2 Temples withContinue reading “[THAILAND] o17. AYUTTHAYA – OF RECLINING BUDDHAS AND WISHING WELLS”

[THAILAND] o13. BANGKOK ON IMPULSE

“I don’t believe in guilt, I believe in living on impulse as long as you never intentionally hurt another person, and don’t judge people in your life. I think you should live completely free” ― Angelina Jolie 2 Jan – 7 Jan // There are only two places I travel to on impulse when alone:Continue reading “[THAILAND] o13. BANGKOK ON IMPULSE”

[DIARY] LOVE YOUR IMPERFECTIONS

31 days into 2015 and it has been surreal. I’ve been thankful each day for the people I’ve met, especially to those I’ve learnt to count on for simply being there. The obstacles in my current career are finally levelling out. I’m beginning to understand why some of my colleagues would fall in love with this jet-setting lifestyle. Don’t be fooledContinue reading “[DIARY] LOVE YOUR IMPERFECTIONS”

[BRISBANE] A FRESH NEW START

Back at my favourite hideout in Brisbane: The Passion Tree Cafè. This time round I skipped the shaved ice and had my froyo cravings satiated. Regrettably it wasn’t the best of days for the girl serving my froyo. I get it, we all have our bad days right? Paulo Coelho’s biography saved me from boredom;Continue reading “[BRISBANE] A FRESH NEW START”

A Tinge of Nostalgia

Reminiscing the days where I was still an insanely active dancer – and decided to upload the choreography collabo piece which Rasul and I did for NUS Dance Blast’s 2011 concert!! (When I was still in year 2 going on year 3 and had a hell lot of time to dance.) Truth is, I thinkContinue reading “A Tinge of Nostalgia”

Victoria Peak, Hong Kong

Friends, I can finally say that I’ve been to Hong Kong. Cannot believe that for the past 4 – 5 times I’ve been here for work / holiday, I’ve never made it up to the highest mountain (1,811 ft) on Hong Kong island!! It was close to 9 p.m. when we dropped Samantha back at ourContinue reading “Victoria Peak, Hong Kong”

HOW DO I

HOW DO I How do I sleep with voices in my head – telling me what to do, what to say, who to love in a torrential rain of unspoken words, this cascade of love misplaced from desired keepers whose intentions long expired; all memories are deadweight. How do I sleep with footsteps in myContinue reading “HOW DO I”

My Pink Leopard Manicure

2014 Bucket list item #24: Get manicured in pretty pink leopard prints – check! Read Nora Roberts’ old classics at Spinelli’s while waiting to have dinner with Annabelle. Spinelli’s is so underrated in comparison to the coffee chain monopolies Starbucks and Coffee Bean. Perhaps I’m just sick of Starbucks at the moment – I usedContinue reading “My Pink Leopard Manicure”

Pick Your Poison

Introduced my parents to Baileys, my favourite bedtime drink! Stir it into coffee, or over ice and milk…my absolute favorite with almost everything. Personal favourite concoction: Baileys with hot Milo, marshmallows and Nescafé. My Christmas Neslo with liqueurs. Also loving: Baileys with peppermint icecream and chocolate chips. 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

Rathaus Glockenspiel, Munich

What comes to mind when you think of Munich? Longchamp and Rimowa!! And well, for me it’s the Marienplatz clock tower. This grandeur never fails to give me the chills! My goal next year is to photograph the Rathaus Glockenspiel in Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter. So far, I’ve only done Summer and Autumn. xoxo,Continue reading “Rathaus Glockenspiel, Munich”

Costa Coffee and Travel Woes

Woes of a traveller: sometimes you’re bound to crave familiar and comforting sights or foods!! Costa Coffee is one of those lighthouses I’m always happy to see in foreign lands, along with Starbucks and Boots. At the moment, they have gingerbread coffee coolers and lattes as their festive drinks, which I find none too amazing.Continue reading “Costa Coffee and Travel Woes”

London Lovin’: St Christopher’s Place

The plethora of alfresco dining choices had me drawn in.

St Christopher’s Place sits at the heart of the West End and can be found betweenContinue reading “London Lovin’: St Christopher’s Place”
