The preparation for our big day in San Francisco was both thrilling and nerve-wrecking.
Booking of flights, making sure we made all the correct appointments, hiring of photographer, makeup, hair, flowers – the list of to-dos just goes on and on. Looking back now, I’m glad we were lucky enough to have met people who helped us and gave us so much valuable advice.
Eloping with A to San Francisco and getting married in the City Hall is one of the most beautiful thing we’ve ever done together.
Love isn’t always rosy and beautiful. Sometimes it hurts, and renders you powerless and vulnerable. Other times, it turns you into an irrational person. Love has the power to make brave, or to make one a coward. Two totally different person learning to love and live as one is quite a feat altogether. We are in love, but we want to make sure these images did not only show the happy times. It is a reminder of being powerless and vulnerable can be beautiful and how lucky we are to find someone who is on the same page as you. I hope we will always be on that same page. § § § Let’s always be strange and beautiful together, A. Special thanks to Bobby from Bobby Kiran Photography, Dylan and team from Dylan And Son, Ai Yi and Dollei Seah for the love. More on Instagram @sixpegs or #APGoSteady.
It is always easy to list down the items you have on your Bucket List; easy to tell people around you that one has to live life to the fullest and you have probably read a thousand and one article on Facebook telling you specifically the things to avoid doing (or do) if you don’t want to grow old with regrets. Does living life to the fullest everyday really makes us feel like we have the world? “To live a few years of my life like most people won’t, so that I can live the rest of it like most people can’t.” I have heard this quote once and I find it hard to forget. Often when I find myself slipping away, trying to find excuses for myself so that I can take a little time off from work, I repeat this quote in my head. It makes a lot of sense to me. Except, now I finally realised I’ll need to survive the “living a few years of my life like most people won’t” …
If anyone were to ask me which vacation was the best I’ve ever had, it would have to be my visit to Kiruna and Abisko. It was a trip of many first-times – first time on a dog sled, first time seeing the Northern Lights, first time in a snow fight, first time on snow mobile, first time sleeping on a bed made of ice! I was a little apprehensive when A said that we should try dog sledding. Because I am a worry wart. What if we fall. What if we fall and we cut ourselves. What if we fall and we cut ourselves and bleed. What if we fall and we cut ourselves and bleed to death because we are too far from any help. But after rounds of persuasion from A, I caved. We arrived at the dog pens area where all the dogs were at. All of them became mad excited when they saw us approaching, it must be because they know they will be getting a good run soon! I …

In 2011 Beijing, it was -10 degrees C, but it did not snow. In 2015 January, Seoul, it hit 0 degrees C, but no it did not snow. (IT RAINED! Busket….) 2015 February, Padova, there was snow all around on the floor, but I did not see falling snow. *dreads* 2015 is the year I first saw falling snow. And Sweden is that special place. My light-chasing trip to Sweden is one of the best vacation I’ve ever had.
My week-long stay in Padova, Italy in January 2015 gave me some of the fondest memories I have in Europe. A and I took on a dessert making crash course with Manuelina Culinary and it was the best choice we’ve ever made! (Not an ad ok) The class was so comprehensive, and we came back totally inspired and enlightened. We also met some of the nicest people whom we still contact regularly until now. Let me take you to the beginning of the journey. The night before the flight – which is always the most horrible night because of the packing and the anticipation of the long flight (hate long flights) ahead. Pfft! It took us 1 transit, 13 hours on Emirates to arrive at Malpensa in Milan.
We will be flying off to San Francisco this November. It’s time to seal the deal! Last February, we promised each other that we would always be together. And from now, it is just another two more months before the real deal happens! I am so excited and so looking forward to everything I can’t even…
My travelogue entry on the Seoul trip is massively overdue. So without further ado, here we go!
