Travels

At the Border

It is a standard that no photo or video-taking is allowed inside the immigration premises of a country you are leaving or entering. As what the men in tuxedo at the Sistine Chapel would shout ” No Photos…No Cameras” (in Italian accent, of course). I wish I could post a picture to show what exactly […] CONTINUE READING →

Where am I?

I am currently in Singapore. As of this writing, its 3:00 am here. Rolex is snorring like he is still under the spell of a drink called “Double Black Label” while I am trying to get some sleep, nursing a monthly disease called dysmenorrhea. To top it all, my legs are screaming due to non-stop […] CONTINUE READING →

Then Sun is Screaming

I am torn between work mode and vacation mode. My boss is on leave and I have never been so busy like this (audit, quarter-close, special project, etc…) Rolex said, “aren’t you happy you are busy?” I don’t get his point exactly but I’ll just embrace this moment because 10 days from now, it’s my […] CONTINUE READING →

The Chedi

Last friday was not like any other day. It was the birthday of our good friend Francis and he chose to celebrate his 35th birthday (35 seemed to be the constant figure) at The Chedi Hotel in Muscat. It was unfortunate that Rolex did not bring his camera. I hope my iphone clicks would do […] CONTINUE READING →

LONDON OLYMPICS

100 days until the London Olympics kicked off yesterday, right?  The countdown reminded me of someone who went to London 399 days before the Olympics (excited much?).The first time I visited London, I was still single and a little confused about what I really wanted to do with my life.

Kevelaer Germany

Here’s the second part of our trip to Kevelaer, Germany. This is the town Kevelaer that actually welcomed us. After the bus driver took his beer-break at 3pm, he dropped as in this corner from Weeze Airport. We walked roughly around 10 minutes of an alley like this until we reach our hotel. Though I’ve […] CONTINUE READING →
