places i wish to go to

1) South Korea

Yummy food, beautiful romantic sceneries, unique culture, kyeopta people and my lovely chingus. need i say more?



eh song triplets? <3 i="">

2) Japan

I've been super curious about the Japanese culture. and the idea of autumn/spring in Japan with cherry blossoms all around is hard to resist.

lake sakura

fuji mountain

just a cute old couple hihi

3) Turkey

This is more of a revisiting rather than a first visit since I've been to Istanbul and Pamukkale but I remembered going there and thinking, ok i need to go here again for my honeymoon >.<

capadocia, i havent been!

4) New Zealand

Big fan of the LOTR and ..everything green :D


yo i'd live here. i would actually fit in one of these houses


5) Norway/ Iceland/ Greenland

Specifically for dog-sledding and aurora-hunting. What dreams are made of I'm sure!

how wildly amazing is it to camp the night cosily under an aurora-lit sky?

need to keep myself trim for this, them poor dogs

6) Jordan

I chose Brazil/ Machu Picchu over Jordan last summer. This country seems like it has plenty to offer, from the magnificent Petra, to the peculiar Dead Sea to finding ship wrecks while diving in the Red Sea. I also would not mind another night at the desert <3 p="">









If only, if only ....
a girl can dream

making sense of misfortunes and mishaps

2014 has been such a disastrous year for my country.
I never thought I'd see malaysia 'gracing' the headlines for the terrible events occuring one after another. I'd much rather go back to being from that quiet country 'somewhere between thailand and singapore'.


New year is coming in a few days and honestly, it can only go up from here. Lives must have changed for so many people affected by the tragedies that I don't know if that thought will be of any consolation at all.

Rest in peace.

sherlock

Some wise man once read me. He said I don't listen to negative reinforcements very well. Shout at me and stomp your feet to get me doing one thing, I will turn my back and do the opposite. He also peculiarly said that I will be simplistic in choosing my life partner. It is a case of who I can live with and who can live with me.

Well well, sherlock. Perhaps ur right about everything but the use of the word "simplistic". Perhaps things that appear simple have more depth than you can imagine.

Morbid and malignant.
Some feed of the energy of those who are sad.
Tell them!
There's nothing to see here and you can save your pats.
I thought it's for cats anyway ;)

builder

I love this feeling of ... building. Or wanting to build.
It is like being on top of a mountain then coming back to breathing ground air.
Expansive, clear, back.
You see newness in the old.

Put on your hat, builder.
For it shall be a wonderful journey.

the drive

hand on the gear, yours was always somehow wounded.
the road was long, she could not be certain how long in her sleep
it was impossible to be nervous
the lights were pretty, a dancing blur from the speed.
her mind was in many places but it was certain about driving home.
home.
