[THAILAND] o16. DAYTRIP TO AYUTTHAYA

40 miles north of Bangkok lies Phra Nakhon Si Ayutthaya, capital of Ayutthaya Province, Thailand. Ayutthaya Kingdom was destroyed in 1767 by Burmese army who took down the city. Ayutthaya, like Rome, has since left most of its ruins within sight. Officially listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site is its Historical Park, whose ruinsContinue reading “[THAILAND] o16.

[THAILAND] o15. VINTAGE ROD FAI

Talad Rod Fai, Bangkok, is an open-air bazaar peddling an insane array of vintage collectables, quirky kitsch and memorabilia from yesteryear. Since its move in 2013 due to an expansion of the BTS Skytrain line, its reappearance at the new site accommodated a bigger, more international crowd. I loved the old Rod Fai next toContinue reading “[THAILAND] o15. VINTAGE ROD FAI”

[THAILAND] o14. SIX HANGOUTS TO HIT IN BANGKOK (FOODIES ONLY)

Perks of having native Thai friends – they’ve tried it all and only take you for the best. I had the honour of my Thai native friends’ undivided attention 5 days in January this year. Knowing us (foodies who were through with tourist traps in the big city), the pair of them took us gallivanting throughContinue reading “[THAILAND] o14.

Lori’s Diner, San Francisco

Breakfast at Lori’s Diner on Mason Street, a ’50s-style rock’n’roll American bistro. For the all-American oldies experience, this is the place to be! Love their classic red booths, checkered tiles and memorabilia of Coca-Cola, Elvis Presley and various cars of the era. All of Lori’s Diners are open 24 hours daily; the Lori’s on PowellContinue reading “Lori’s Diner, San Francisco”

London Lovin’: Just another day

I’m in a new city, all wide-eyed amazement, and the locals are like yea whatever, same old shit everyday! The perks of globetrekking: it’s never gonna be just another day to me. xoxo, Viktoria Jean

Videopress: Christchurch, New Zealand

Took this whilst in Christchurch last month, on a chilly early November morning. Wholesome sounds of nature only, hence the chirping birds and ear-popping winds. Still getting the hang of videopress-ing on my camera and phone; pardon me if the travelogue is a tad shaky!

London Lovin’: Langham Place

In Marylebone for a bit of sightseeing and neverending shopping. Popped by Langham place – best known for being home to BBC, London College of Fashion, and Roux at the Landau. Langham Place at Westminster is severely underrated. I love the wide selection of liberal brands: Tracey Neuls, Schuh, H&M’s Collection of Style, Hoss IntropiaContinue reading “London Lovin’: Langham Place”

You don’t have to say you love me

“I suppose the things that you always take for granted, that you don’t even notice, are what you miss the most.” — Sarra Manning (You Don’t Have to Say You Love Me)

Perth – May’13

Aye aye captain, mission accomplished over the South Atlantic Ocean. Agent Yujin reporting, Over and out! Out in the city of Perth aiming my camera at random and snapping the most mundane shots while sourcing out cafes in the area. A very mind-clearing journey on foot, I have to say. Australia has got some hiddenContinue reading “Perth – May’13”

The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West

“She dropped her shyness like a nightgown, and in the liquid glare of sunlight on old boards she held up her hands-as if, in the terror of the upcoming skirmish, she had at last understood that she was beautiful. In her own way.” ― Gregory Maguire, Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of theContinue reading “The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West”
