Moonlight Sea

When Perci first emailed me about travelling to Taiwan again to visit Taiwan East Coast, my heart skipped a beat. I recalled the first time visiting Yilan with them and how I thoroughly enjoyed the trip, the idea of visiting a new region of Taiwan with the locals really thrilled me. I’ve never been much of a solo traveller, in fact, I’d even call myself quite an anxious solo traveller. It is something that I’m still trying to work on. The idea of being on my own in a foreign land is intimidating, probably because I’m a worry wart who constantly thinks about all the things that might go wrong while being on my own in an unfamiliar place. (What if I fall sick? What if the turbulence is bad? What if I get robbed? What if I lose my way?) I sometimes get anxiety from feeling obligated to interact with strangers too, I think that boils down to me being a little too self-conscious. *shrugs* Anyways! – I’ve never heard much about Taiwan East …

Hello Cats! Hello Alpacas!

And so, other than lavish temples, cheap massages, good food and fancy hotels, Bangkok has more to offer! A and I checked out three theme cafes in Bangkok and I’m here to share more about what we think of them. We have heard (or seen) many cat cafes because they are getting so popular these days. But this one that we visited is one of the prettiest I’ve seen so far! Other than the cafe section, they also have a retail section, as well as a grooming arm! The cats here are really pretty! And we saw 3 (or was it 4) Maine Coons, and A went crazy because she really likes her cats BIG! Hahahahaha. But to be frank, the Maine Coons looked really majestic! The pictures you see above is the usual sight during most of the time. We were also lucky enough to witness how feeding time was like at the cafe! The lady with the cat food walked into the room with a tray with all the cat food and went …

Hotel Muse

Last weekend was a special one for me, being able to spend A’s birthday privately with her in Bangkok. I think people might think we are mad at the rate we’re visiting Bangkok. Heh! We just love this place too much! During this visit, we also checked out Le Cabinet de Curiosites of Thomas Erber, an internationally acclaimed annual exhibition, exploring both Thai and international arts. It was a feast for the eyes! This is the fifth year Le Cabinet de Curiosite was held and this time round, it was hosted by Siwilai Concept Store and Central Embassy, a brand new luxury mall in the heart of Bangkok. In this event, we saw more than 70 pieces consisting of a Lotus Arts de Vive crocodile sculpture, pieces by Thai silk company Jim Thompson, a P-Tendercool haute manufactured table, the lightest jacket ever made by Officine Generale, and an exclusive urban city bag by Maison Takuya. It’s just way too cool! Central Embassy was also like an art piece on its own – look at those …

Tokyo

Tokyo came and left in the blink of an eye. As much as the world is getting smaller every day with this crazy technology boom, it is still taking me so long to fly around the globe. Hasn’t anyone came up with a teleporting machine yet?
