    My Wellington, New Zealand

    Saturday, December 20, 2014

    My Wellington As usual I’m running late so I pick a random t-shirt off my floor and throw it on, it doesn’t go with this skirt at all; the colours clash horribly but I don’t care because the weirder the better in Wellington. I run out the flat and slam the door closed behind me […]

    The tranquility of spirit in Vietnam

    Saturday, December 20, 2014

    Hanoi, Vietnam, is a beautiful place where most Vietnamese dynasties have left their imprint, consider one of the main cultural centers of Vietnam. Hanoi have not experience thru wars and time but the city has many interesting cultural and historic monuments influences by Chinese and French. There are bursting with people, fascinating scenes, and rich […]

    The Journey around the world

    Friday, December 19, 2014

    The journey. Travelling. How I first got bit I’m not sure, but the bug certainly had me. The only inhabited continent I’ve not visited is South America, and I have some good excuses up my sleeve for going there in the future. Every time you travel you end up with stories, have adventures. I’ve enough […]

    Assateague Island Freedom, USA

    Friday, December 19, 2014

    The wind is chilly, blowing in from the Atlantic. Even though it’s May, and spring is hurrying on toward summer in the city, it hasn’t quite made it to the islands. Chincoteague. Practically everyone in America has grown up reading about it, and about the wild ponies on neighboring Assateague Island. I pull my too-thin […]

    An Afternoon in Sibiu, Romania

    Friday, December 19, 2014

    The main square of Sibiu was my favorite destination on walks through the old city.  It was cobblestoned, with small streets and alleys branching out of it.  A fountain in the middle was the main attraction for children escaping the heat while their parents sat in surrounding cafes, each establishment out-advertising the other with huge […]

    Walking Rome, Italy Alone

    Thursday, December 18, 2014

    Walking Rome Alone   For me, Rome began with rain and tears. I arrived at the airport in the morning, and wanted to take public transport to my hostel to save money. A bus to Termini station, a train to the Colosseum, and a 40 minute walk left to go. It was cold and raining. […]

    The Long Road Towards the Inevitable in Turkey

    Thursday, December 18, 2014

    The Long Road Towards the Inevitable Tomorrow you’ll wake up realising that all your hopes and promises of happiness are not there. The comfort of a house, a pair of loving arms and the job are gone. As well as the emotional balance and self-esteem. Everything vanished a month ago when your now ex-husband shut […]

    A Letter of Thanks to Halong Bay, Vietnam

    Thursday, December 18, 2014

    Dear Halong Bay, I don’t know if its appropriate to ‘thank’ a place. But to me, like many of my loved ones, you hold a special place in my heart and your memories make me a better person.  I met you a year ago, when I was lost and hurting from a relationship gone terribly, […]

    Mt. Bromo, The Jewel of East Java

    Wednesday, December 17, 2014

    It was a very tired office week. I felt that I have no energy left to face another day. Out of the sudden, a friend from my college called and asked me to go to Mt. Bromo with him and another friend. I instantly agreed because of one reason.  I’d never been to Bromo, period. […]

Hong Kong: Kowloon Walled City Park

When I first moved to Hong Kong in 1990, there was a part of the city that was off bounds. It was an ungoverned slum called the Kowloon Walled City, with layer after layer of tenement buildings so close to one another that daylight sometimes never reached the minuscule alleyways. In the center of the […]
