Reality Check

2July has only just begun and while good things are happening in my life and I’ve learnt to embrace the fact that I’ll just be here, I can’t help but feel unmotivated in my current w-place.  And after learning about what this person I worked my ass off for thought about me, I did not take it well.   Continue reading “Reality Check”

Little Rock, Arkansas

My recent trip to Little Rock involved my whole family getting together due to the fact that my little brother graduated from college which I might have mentioned in a previous post.  I have without a doubt so much love for my family even though we drove each other nuts at some point (because what’s a family vacay without a bit of drama?).1 Continue reading “Little Rock, Arkansas”

The aftermath of Travelling

Whilst travelling has left me with good memories I’ll treasure forever, it’s left my wallet hanging dry and empty.  And I mean that in the most honest way.  I’m not complaining at all, but I’d be lying if I said that it hasn’t taken a huge toll on my finances and once again, I’ve never felt so lifeless having nothing to spend for a month or two.  However, I’ve pulled myself together and figured out a way not to spend these two months.  After all, I have to keep myself busy with everything that’s going on around me.IMG_9843 Continue reading “The aftermath of Travelling”

Hamilton on Broadway!

Less than a year ago, I flew to the US for my sister’s birthday and then went on a Cali adventure which included driving along the coast and hopping from one city to the next.  Our last stop was San Francisco where we got to see one of the most popular musicals: Hamilton!  I blogged about this as well, so just click on the link if you’re interested.IMG_1773 Continue reading “Hamilton on Broadway!”

Next Stop: Brooklyn

Whilst in New York, we made it a point to stop by Brooklyn and see one of the most popular bridges ever built.  I’ve had my fair share of seeing or visiting popular bridges before and it was also my second time there, so prior to going, I wasn’t as excited although it later had an effect on me and yes it’s still pretty! I’m so glad we went and that my parents and little brother got to see it for this trip was mostly for them (my parents paid for it after all).  It was interesting to see it for the second time because it felt familiar and we got to soak it all in despite the number of people on it. [Tip: Be sure to get there early because by noon, the bridge will be filled with tourists and locals cycling.] Continue reading “Next Stop: Brooklyn”

Hello, New York!

Hello from the other side…So happy to have been able to go back to the city that never sleeps after four years and with my family too. It felt surreal, yet exciting and exhausting at the same time. However, being back there at my age felt like “hard work” in terms of walking and getting to places (not that I was of any help in looking for directions because my siblings did all the work), but that did not prevent us from seeing what we wanted to see, except for some.

My Travel Round Up for the Year 2017

This year has been really epic for me due to the fact that I went all out with travelling to both nearby places and the other side of the world with my boyfriend, siblings and my parents.  I’ve never felt happier and broke at the same time because as I’ve mentioned in one of my posts before, travelling takes a toll on my finances, but nothing can replace the wonderful memories I’ve made with the special people in my heart.  Therefore, I’m sharing with you some of my favourite memories below.

Portland Part 2: Time Well Spent

Hello again and hope you’re having a blast this weekend!  I just wanted to share a bit more of the things we did/see while in Portland only because I reread my post the last time and only gave a general idea of what the city was like.  Therefore, in this post, I’ve decided to share with you more details of where we ate, shopped or roamed around in because it is a food and shopping haven after all which I’ve mentioned in my previous post.  So without further ado, below are some of the places we went to.

Places Visited: The Daily Feast|Powell’s Books|Lardo|Blue Star Donuts|Portland Aerial Tram|Bamboo Sushi|Voodoo Doughnut

We mainly visited restaurants or bakeries as you can see from the list I made.  Of course that does not include the shops we went to because there were just too many of them. Continue reading “Portland Part 2: Time Well Spent”
