Hong Kong: Day 1

Hello again dearies!

Apologies for not spending time blogging. I've been preoccupied lately. Anyway hubby and I managed to spend our 5th wedding anniversary in Hong Kong as well as to experience Chinese New Year in a Chinese city...which dissapoints us as Penang was far more happening. You can hardly find CNY deco in Hong Kong other than the existing lights on tall buildings. Anyway Hong Kong doesn't please hubby at all and he requested for a relaxing island getaway next time.

Hong Kong: Itinerary and Budget

Hey wanderlusts!

We finally meet again after a long hiatus. There has been a turmoil in my life recently and I felt like giving up. Nope I haven't reached to the point of suicide. At least not yet. Good news is we unexpectedly purchased another home but that also means we had to cut our spending to the max. Anyway to start fresh in 2018 hubby and I decided to go on a budget trip to Hong Kong for our 5th wedding anniversary as well as experiencing Lunar New Year at the happening city. We were supposed to countdown for New Year in Hong Kong but most hotels were fully booked or doubled the price so it wasn't worth it. 


Bear in mind this isn't exactly a backpacker's trip but if you really want to spend below RM2k it is possible with budget airlines and hostels.

Top 10 Haunted Hotels I Have Stayed


Muahaha I'm so excited when it comes to paranormal topic. As I was busy finding hotel for my next trip, I did some background check as well then thought how come I never share my haunted hotel list. As my travel experience grew, I always try my best to never book hotels that have some unwanted stories behind. Most haunted hotels were booked in my early days where I don't care as long as there's a place to stay.

Iceland: Day 7 (Jökulsárlón and crystal ice cave)

Rise and shine dearies!

Iceland: Day 6 (Skaftafell)

A very lovely and windy morning today!

Just for recap yesterday was a disaster! We were stuck for almost 6 hours in the middle of a tiny town unable to turn to anywhere coz all roads were blocked even the one towards Reykjavik. The wind was quite strong but luckily we were able to drive today. Blue skies can be seen clearly as the horrible clouds blown away. You can find itinerary and budget for this trip HERE.


"Hiked" an hour for this but the breathtaking waterfall was worth it.

Iceland: Day 5 (Journey to Vik)

Good morning!

Today we will head on down to Vik. Yesterday we had so much fun around the Golden Circle. This morning we got up around 7am with happy vibes and excited to start our waterfall journey cos we thought we will visit lotsa waterfalls today but turned out didn't go according to SCHEDULE. We'll talk about it later.

Cold and wet and moody at Seljalandsfoss.

Iceland: Day 2 (A day in London)

Hello again wanderlusters!

Let's recap... yesterday was a short but fun walking tour in Singapore. Technically today and the day before isn't exactly Iceland but rather long transits that we willingly opted to squeeze in some extra cities. So literally today is a London trip. What can you do in London for just a day? What we did was crazy and highly not recommended. You should at least spend 3 full days in this beautiful city and visit other nearby towns as well. But if you are in a tight budget like us and only wanna spend below RM1000 (2 person + hotel + transport + food) and touch-n-go as many landmarks as possible then read below how we did it. You may refer to full itinerary and budget HERE.

London is one of the cities I wanted to visit when I was a child and here I am!

Iceland: Day 1 (A day in Singapore)

Hey travelbugs!

Much apologies for not updating my blog due to personal issue happening in my family. I will try my best to recall our most epic trip by far like it was yesterday. At the end of February this year we went for a Northern Lights trip to Iceland. If you are interested to know itinerary and budget for this trip click HERE. Since we had to transit a few cities why not spend some time exploring? Hence we purposely opted for a 9 hour transit in Singapore . It's a shame I've known hubby for 13 years but this is the first time we visit our neighbor country together. Singapore trip has always been with my parents since I was 8 coz I've got relatives there.

Beautiful night scene at the quay.

Iceland: Itinerary and Budget (Only RM9000 per person)

Hey globetrotters!

Remember back in 2015 I wrote a post about my Aurora Dream? Though financial is tough, I don't give a shit and went ahead in realizing my dream. With tight budget, awful exchange rate and coming from a 3rd world country, visiting one of the most expensive country in the world is still possible! So believe in yourself and you can do it! Also hope you don't mind that my itinerary is jam packed coz greedy me wanna squeeze in as much places as possible but you have the choice not to follow it.

We look terrible here coz we were shivering. With lots of luck and analysis we saw the lights 5 out of 9 nights. The key is to get out of town away from light pollution. Check out and follow my Facebook profile for more photos.

 
If KP is strong enough you can even view it in the city just like we did while we were out for dinner.

Review: Sa Rang Chae

Heya!

Just realised I haven't share my most fav Korean restaurant in Penang. I feel Sa Rang Chae is one of the most traditional and authentic Korean BBQ and cuisine I could find in my hometown. Located right opposite of Penang Chinese Girls High School, Sa Rang Chae is run by a Korean lady and her family for many years.

맛있어요

Review: Italiannies

Hey folks!

Another restaurant I've been wanting to patronize again is Italiannies. The first time I tried was years ago with my parents at their Paragon branch. I miss their mushroom appetizer so much. This time is to celebrate 13th year anniversary as a couple with my husband. Yea we met at a tuition center when we were so young. I really forgot about our anniversary till hubby had to remind me due to so much going on in my family.

It's so easy to find on the ground floor. Located right next to TGI Fridays...in fact both are connected through a door lol.
