hellooo! after 1 month of hibernation, i’m finally back. :) apart from my day job which keeps me busy most of the time, i am now busy attending to my husband doing wife duties. my life indeed changed after my husband arrived. gone are the boring days of eating alone and spending long hours in the computer. in short, i have a REAL life now! haha!
i don’t have any exciting stories to tell at the moment. so for now, i’ll just share my throwback thursday worthy photos for this week’s photo challenge. the photos were from a holiday trip with my singapore colleagues at bangkok 2 years ago, our first and last trip together before we disbanded. haha! so much has changed for me and my friends since this trip — two of us are now happily married, one is almost there and two of us relocated here in new zealand. looking at the photos brings a smile to my face and made me realize how much i miss singapore, southeast asia, my friends and my once carefree life. :)
here’s our own version of hangover bangkok edition along soi cowboy. yep, we included this in our itinerary! haha! despite walking along the busy red light district, we are all a bunch of wholesome individuals enjoying beer, pad thai and laughter (no ping pong shows for us). ;)
it’s weekend again and it means, it’s weekly photo challenge time. thanks to wordpress dailypost community for the good ideas (^_^). and so, this week’s theme is about colors. here’s my photo entry for the week. (to be honest, i’m just lazy to blog and all i want to do is sleep, eat and relax in this cold weather…hihihi)
souvenirs at asakusa
this picture was taken at one of the souvenir shops at asakusa in tokyo, japan. as you can see, tourists are not allowed to take pictures of them (you should buy it!!!)…but i was able to sneak one shot. one.naughty.bad.ass.
i wish to be able to go back to japan again someday, perhaps in kyoto or osaka so i can see the beautiful sakura blossoms during the spring.next time, there’s always a next time. ;)

these are the photos that crossed my mind when i found out about this week’s photo challenge. this was taken during a solo trip at bali, indonesia. i was visiting one of the temples when i saw these reminders posted at the entrance gates. as a traveler, i was curious as to why having a period is not allowed inside the temples. of course, i do respect the balinese culture and i’m blessed not to have one during that time of visit. honestly, it still puzzles me. :)

this photo was taken during a holiday trip at a beach in phuket, thailand. i saw this couple kissing and hugging each other while watching the sunset. it was indeed a very romantic moment for the lovebirds enjoying the beauty of the sunset while enjoying each other’s company.

it’s saturday again and another time for weekly photo challenge. i’m running short of topics to share so i’m mostly relying on the friday’s challenge. hopefully soon fingers crossed, i’ll be able to post something ‘exciting’ here (watch out for it!).
this week’s theme is all about BIG (literally or figuratively)…and these are my photo entries.
this picture was taken last year at wat pho or the temple of reclining buddha in bangkok, thailand. i was very keen to see this statue of the big buddha since i first learned about it from the movie ‘the beach’, which is one of my favorite movies. this is very huge standing 15m high and 43m long.
this picture was taken at odaiba shopping center in tokyo, japan. this larger than life gundam robot reminds me of my childhood days when i used to watch japanese cartoons and tv shows during weekends and afternoons after going home from school.
lastly, this photo was taken during a trip at ta phrom temple at angkor wat in siem reap, cambodia. the growing trees among the ruins makes this place one of the most visited spots at angkor wat. this place was also used as a location for the movie ‘tomb raider’ by angelina jolie.
