Officially a Mrs.

About 2 weeks ago, I married my partner, CF. The weather was so unpredictable on our wedding day. It was windy, sunny-ish and rainy. Of course, at the back of my head I was yearning for more sun since we are getting married outdoor by the beach. Camping-themed wedding. We didn’t get exactly get what we…

The Specialty of Southeast Asian Food

Food has always been a huge part of my life but I never really knew why. What I meant was that I have never consciously thought much about it. I just knew that I enjoy food very much and have a strange satisfaction from it. Please don’t get me wrong, it is nothing to do…

Another surprise!!

This came in the mail today. Oh, I can so get used to this; receiving gifts and presents every day. Ok..ok…I am now getting cheeky. Dearest Kowa, I would like to take this opportunity to acknowledge our friendship. You had been a great friend to me. And, I still remember the exact moment when you…

I now, Own a Cow!

I was coming back to work and found this outside my room door. What a surprise! I received a cow today because of a ‘kind of an insider joke’ about how only citizen of New Zealand can own a cow and I was discussing this with a friend. I guess she took a pity on…

The Birthday Present

As usual you always managed to surprise me – Thank you! (And not forgetting my personal tune, too)

Pre-Birthday Dinner

I had trouble writing this post. I guess I had mix feeling about my birthday this year. Firstly, I truly enjoyed my lovely seafood dinner at Carey’s Bay Historic Hotel’s Restaurant with C.F. The food was great, the service was fantastic, love the environment and of course, the company that I was with. Ya, he…

Siem Reap Visual Overview #7 – Kampong Pluk and hanging out in Pub Street

Visited on the 25th December 2012 (Tuesday) Evening of Day 02 From Beng Mealea, we visited Kampong Pluk, the floating village.  At first we were undecided to do either Kampong Pluk or Chong Kneas Floating Village because we had heard different comments/opinions on these. We finally decided on doing Kampong Pluk because of what we heard from…

The graduate!

I hope it’s not too late for this post. I still think it is important that I acknowledge this: Congratulation again on your graduation, Kowa! You have come so far and you made it. I wish you all the best in whatever you choose to do. Hugs and Kisses!

2.48am in LCCT

Looking at the clock ticking away while waiting for check in time. Tick Tock! Tick Tock! It’s only 2.48am! A group of China people just decided to hang out beside us. They started by building a barricade using their luggage bag to set the boundary. LOL! Interesting! I wondered what went through their mind when…

Special 22122012

Why is 22 12 2012 special? It’s special for a few reasons. Firstly, it’s a prove that people panic for no reason and the 21st was not DOOMS Day. We are all still breathing, living and kicking as I have predicted (sense my sarcastic sentiment?) Secondly, I attended an old friend’s wedding. Gosh! Time flies….
