Stranded in Makassar for 22 Hours

Never have I ever planned to go to Makassar. I was in the city purely by some accident. I hate long flights. Anything beyond three hours will naturally freak me out, which is one of the reasons why I was hesitant to travel for too far. So when I planned to go to Ternate, I … Continue reading Stranded in Makassar for 22 Hours

Congratulations! Your (US) Visa is Rejected!

There were lots of myths circling around how you can get your US visa approved and even a whole lot more on why your visa was rejected. It's like one big mystery. It might even feel like you won a lottery if you can get the visa. Seriously. But my story (if the title hasn't … Continue reading Congratulations! Your (US) Visa is Rejected!

Paris Travel Diary #5 – Paris is Intimidating

At least that is what I think... Why? Well, mostly because of the places that I had on the itinerary for the day. There were only two actually, which were the Versailles and Louvre - did you starting to get the idea of the reason behind the title? How was it, you asked? I'll say … Continue reading Paris Travel Diary #5 – Paris is Intimidating

Paris Travel Diary #4 – We Have the Sun Back in Paris

If this sounds cliche, then so be it - It was almost magical when you woke up and you saw the snows covering the roof from your window. It was not something that I will get the chance to see every day. Actually, that was the first time probably, waking up to the snowy roof … Continue reading Paris Travel Diary #4 – We Have the Sun Back in Paris

Paris Travel Diary #3 – Almost Die in Paris

Riding a bicycle around Paris sounds like a classic thing to do right? So I signed up with one of the Airbnb experiences: secret walk around Paris on an electric bicycle. Sounds neat. I like the idea that we will be walking around places in Paris that are rather off the beaten path and not … Continue reading Paris Travel Diary #3 – Almost Die in Paris

Paris Travel Diary #2 – City of Thousand Stairs

Paris in my imagination was a romantic cobbled stone road, old classic apartment with the creaky uneven wooden floor, gothic architectures on every corner, and macaroons. My apartment definitely has everything that I imagined of how a Parisian apartment should look like. The four flight stairs were sometimes disheartening. Just as I thought my heart … Continue reading Paris Travel Diary #2 – City of Thousand Stairs

Paris Travel Diary #1 – Touch down Paris!

Paris decided to greet me with snow. Yes, snow in March! I purposefully choose to sit by the window in the airplane because I don't want to miss out my first view of Paris. My forfeited aisle seat went down to the drain, though as the fog closed the view. I couldn't see anything until … Continue reading Paris Travel Diary #1 – Touch down Paris!

The Struggle to Find a Chinese Tea in Bangkok is Real

Landing in Bangkok just a couple weeks off from my Japan trip, I didn't expect to have another tea problem. Bangkok totally caught me off guard with it this time! I had been to Bangkok a few times before. So I'm not a Bangkok newbie. I know my way well around the Chatuchak market, Pratunam, and Siam. … Continue reading The Struggle to Find a Chinese Tea in Bangkok is Real

Food Poisoning at Bangkok’s Wang Lang Market

I could be quite adventurous at times, especially when it comes to food. I would like to taste everything once at least. And street food is a big thing for me. Fortunately, I'm blessed with a strong stomach. That is until I came to Wang Lang... Wang Lang is not all about food market, because … Continue reading Food Poisoning at Bangkok’s Wang Lang Market
