Weekly Photo Challenge: Blur

In the midst of the hustling & bustling of a weekend in the city, daily post reminded me to blur those out and slow down my pace. While party goers lined up at clubs & pubs to booze their night away, cars zooming past, my sister taking a selfie with her bestie and the night lights glittering away. I remembered I had an "assignment". So I pulled back and took my time to immerse myself muffling the world out. My visions went blurred, the atmosphere sounded muddy, I think I felt a moment of peace while zoning out. Sounds like bullshit but that really happened.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Fresh

Weekly Photo Challenges: Fresh

This is not a advertorial post. Remembering the trip to Cambodia years back, this was probably the freshest thing I've ever had in my entire trip. Not that I haven't drank coke before but after a day of blazing sun, rustic & dusty temple after temple of tourist attractions, looking at the poor living conditions (mostly women & children camping at the pedestrian pavements without roofs over their heads)... going back to the accommodation and to be greeted with an ice cold coke sitting in the freezer is thee BEST feeling ever. It was a luxury. Too fresh.

Weekly Photo Challenges: Wall

So this is my first time participating in the Weekly Photo Challenge by The Daily Post. I hope I will be diligent enough to follow through every week. The reason why I chose this picture for the "Wall" theme was because my chase (i try) for graffiti artworks in different countries whenever I travel? This is one of my favorite. Taking the picture of this wall was hard work. We had to rent a bicycle, hunt down the wall with a map, take the pictures which doesn't fit into one frame and piece all the shots into one. Hard work aside, this piece is just gorgeous. I don't know.. I just love the quirkiness concept of the lady riding a mechanical fish. Fish, in the chinese mythology equates to "abundance". I will be bless with an abundance of health and wealth. If you're reading this, you will too! haha. #youbeblessed

Paris: Jardin Du Luxembourg (Day 11)

We were deceived by the weather. It was blue & sunny and we thought maybe we should just head to Jardin Du Luxembourg. Despite the weather, we took a nice and slow stroll in Luxembourg. I'm not sure if we would enjoy as much in summer so spending autumn in the gardens is not a bad idea. We get summer all year round in Singapore so this is easy, breezy beautiful. We took our time to truly appreciate and soak up the nature. Haven't done that like in donkey years.

Paris: An Educational Kind of Trip (Day 10)

paris-day10_Grand_Gallery_of_Evolution-25

The day was purposely planned to have a different kind of itinerary. Instead of visiting the places of interest, I managed to get the peeps to visit the Muséum National d’Histoire Naturelle. I was looking forward to the Grand Gallery of Evolution especially. It was as if we were kids all over again. The trip was very much considered an educational one, visiting science & biology exhibitions etc. My advice to anyone planning to go? Leave one full day for it. A great place to bring your kids if you’re travelling with any.

Paris: Tuileries Garden (Day 9)

Paris Tuileries garden

We reached Paris after an hour train ride from Belgium and oh my it felt unfamiliar, in a good way. The weather was awesome! Compared to the previous year trip, we felt like dying cause we packed for autumn and we experienced winter instead, grey everyday. This time round, it felt more like autumn. It was really great getting off the train to see blue skies and didn’t need to put on my jacket.

Ghent: Chasing Art on Bikes (Day 8)

The day I was looking forward to. We traveled to Ghent which I regret not heading over earlier. I was thinking if the bike tour of 2hrs could cover the 54 wall murals by various artist as stated by some guide online, we should be able to do that own time own target. But never did I expect the bike rental would have a deposit of 100 over euros for our 4 bikes in which per bike was only 7€. And we were only left with 5hrs usage and had to return by 6.30pm, the closing time. We had to do that otherwise we would have to return the next day to get back our deposit.. dang. And the most important thing we overlooked, we overestimated our physical self riding those bicycles.

Belgium: The Beauty of Brussels (Day 6 & 7)

amsterdam7-07

The moment we arrived at the metro station near our accommodation in Brussels, we found ourselves amongst the Islamic region which was to be honest kind of rowdy especially when they had the flea along the road. After going in a big circle with our backpacks, we finally found our way to Meininger hotel. The reason why we booked a hostel was because we had difficulty finding an airbnb accommodation in Brussels. The hostel turned out to be quite fabulous. A mixture of rustic & modern style, the accommodation lounge area was really cosy and the bar area in another room feels more arty with some art pieces & graffiti on the wall, a pool table and a jukebox.
