Looking at all the starred locations on my google maps for Osaka and feeling excited!
(On a side-note: there is no other word to express how I feel but the word "excited" really. Apart from maybe eager anticipation which can't be used in the same context)
Heard that it's currently super rainy in Japan right now though so a bit sian. Better prepare one light coat and my wellies just in case!!
But I've been obsessively checking over the weather updates for Osaka/Kyoto/Tokyo on my dates and the weather forecasts aren't too optimistic at the moment with lots of showers. I hope that at least means it will be cooler?
Most worried over two dates: 18 and 21 because on 18 I will be going to USJ and on 21 I'll be exploring Kyoto so it would be such a mood dampener if the weather isn't good on those two days 🙏🏻
Well keeping my fingers crossed lah, weather circumstances are not within my control so keep calm and carry on come what may. Hahaha.
Stuff from yesterday's 1870 Clipper Tea Co press kit: I'm in love with the scented candle from "The Romance of Travel" limited edition collection! I picked Singapore Sunrise which is a fruity scent with green tea, mango and passionfruit 😻
The candles are soy-based and hand poured! Soy-based candles apparently don't smoke up as much, which is good.
And the "Romance of Travel" theme is indeed apt for me hahaha! Three more trips to go for this year!
Well, this year, I've been to:
Jan: Taiwan (holiday with YZ, @evonnz, @kenshinjeff)
March: Bali (work trip with GK)
April: Japan (holiday with @evonnz @trishaliang)
June: Phuket (work/holiday with @evonnz)
Aug: Hongkong (work trip with GK)
Sep: Japan (again!)
Oct: Hongkong (again!)
I actually missed out on two more overseas opportunities: one to Vietnam and one to Indonesia this year as well so I hope there'll be further opportunities for me next time 😭
Not sure if I travelled more last year or this year 😂
Because last year was super crazy too,
I went to:
Korea (media trip)
Kota Kinabalu (media trip)
Australia (media trip)
Korea (prewed photo shoot)
Phuket (prewed photo shoot)
Spain (choir competition + holiday)
After doing a quick count, it seems that @Evonnz wins the "travel buddy of the year" award because I would have had travelled with her four times already by the time 2015 ends 😂😂😂
Quite a unique situation as seeing how I don't even travel with YZ that often.
But probably if you count by sheer number of days, my most frequent travel companions are my choir girls Woon Fish Aini because we travel for very long periods together 😁
I really think travelling is the greatest gift of technology!
Now that I have the luxury to travel, I hope to be able to see the world and experience as many different cultures and cities as I can. Because next time if got kids I think very different liao 😣
Anyway.. The weather today is so terrible. Not sure is it 七月 or haze most probably combination everything looks so grey and smells terrible 😣
Even buildings just twenty meters away from me look hazy and grey.
Don't need tell me I also know got haze ☁️☁️☁️
All you campers making me feel bad for not updating!
But there's really not much to update. Tomorrow is voting day and since my voting address is still at my 娘家 I'm back at home tonight and just enjoying my time at home eating mummy's home cooked meals and playing with my dogs.
I'm happy at my new home butttt nothing beats the feeling of being back at "home". 😌😌😌
I love my little dysfunctional family 😂
