One Havoc Night in Batam!

It was one of those times when we were just randomly talking about going away for a short trip, and the next thing we knew.. whoa! We were going to Batam! Okay, maybe not exactly like that. We have been talking about it for weeks but we were procrastinating until the very last day when…

Bangkok Adventure!

After coming back from a 5-days-4-nights trip in Bangkok, I came up with a conclusion: Bangkok, you’re giving Jakarta a run for its money!  Even on the way from the airport to our apartment in the city centre, I couldn’t help but thinking how much the city reminded me of my own hometown. The street…

Memories in Jeju

It was a cool spring season in late April when we landed in Jeju. First time setting a foot anywhere in Korea, I did not know what I’d expect to find in Jeju. My knowledge about Korea is all about its makeup brands, tall good-looking oppas I always see in those addictive k-dramas and songs…

Road Trip Series: Leaving our hearts in San Diego

(If you miss what happened when I was lost in LA trying to get to Disneyland, read the story here.) This story will be the next installment of my graduation trip to the States back in 2009! Next stop: San Diego! When we were in Los Angeles, my friend whom I went with had a…

Nara Circa 2016: Ham-Eating-Deer

My relationship with the animal kingdom is a complicated one. We started out as friends, but not until one of you (a dog) decide to chase me down when I was cycling as a kid, that I decided to go my separate way as you have scarred me for life. So imagine my surprise when…

Korean Beauty Brands I Absolutely Went Crazy For!

So guys, as you know, I just came back from my virgin trip to Korea a few weeks ago, and honestly, I’m already counting down to the days that I can come back there again! I absolutely love Korea! (This is something that if you were to tell the five-years-ago-me, you would have received so…

Springtime in Korea

Springtime in Jeju was an amazing experience. Once I catch my breath, I promise I will write about it. Meanwhile.. my soul is still amidst these beautiful flowers in Korea and there’s nothing you can do about it. 😉

Frat party in a police car

We were young, we were carefree, we were shameless. It was another day during our university exchange program in the States. At that time we were very excited and daring (I remember partying with a group of friends at a bar outside campus a night before we even had our first class, literally on the…

Manchester Bound 2012

Now this will be a recount of experience of our trip to Manchester circa 2012. I thought this will be a fun way to share some of my travel logs, sorry it’s a bit jumbled. That’s just how I am. Jumbled. A lot going on up here. (points to brain) I promise I will get into…

Road Trip Series: Getting lost in LA circa 2009.

It was right on Christmas Day. We were excited to go to Disneyland, and we were paranoid since we’ve been hearing (although I had no idea from whom) that one wouldn’t have enough time in a day to explore the whole Disneyland, so being typical tourists, we already went out at 9 from the hotel,…
