Glamping > Camping

We try to go away from where we are on our anniversary as a little treat/celebration for ourselves. This year, Magnum suggested going glamping down South at Yallingup. I have been wanting to go glamping for such a long time! Personally, I choose glamping over camping. The thought of not being able to shower freaks my hair out, no thank you!

Here are some pictures Magnum took of me/us during the 3 days 2-night getaway. We had such a wonderful time!

First stop we made after arriving in the little town was Cape Lavender Town House. Everything in there was lavender-based, from their tea to their capsicum chutney! Even the decors are hinted with lavender.
I wanted to visit this town house because I've been to the one in Pamberton. In comparision with each other, I prefer the Pamberton Lavender & Berry farm over Cape Lavender Town House (not to mention their fluffy blueberry pancake). Pamberton's products have more of a lavender taste and smell in all their products, whereas Cape Lavender only has notes of it.






We ordered Green Sencha with Lavender tea, but all we could taste was Green Sencha... 






We made our way to our glam tent and two cute yak looking cows came to greet us. They were so friendly and cute. But they had crazy eyes... 




So many of you asked for the location of the tent- say no more. 
My review for this spot?
It's like camping, but better. The tent is located within a retreat area.
You will have to walk 1 min or drive to the toilet, which is part of the pool amenities. Thank goodness for showers!
We had the pool and toilet to ourselves because not many people were staying at the lodge.
You are provided with chargeable lamps for night time and a Bluetooth speaker.
Birds will be your morning un-snoozable alarm. 
A bonus is it is so close to town!

The next morning (which was our anniversary day) we had brunch at Bunker Beach Cafe




We did not do much exciting things this time around compared to the last two times we've been. Magnum flew his drone around, took some really nice photos of the area. So proud of him!






Wyadup Rocks- known as Nature's Spa.  


Here's a photo of me being scared of falling

 Canal Rocks- WHY CAN'T I BE A MERMAID? The sound of waves slapping on rocks makes me so happy.

I hope you enjoyed reading my little hoo-haa post of nothing. Short getaways are always nice when you want to spend some alone time with someone. You focus on nothing but that person, what to eat and where to go. Let us know if you're going, you'll enjoy it as much as we did!

A little bit of Ipoh, a lot of Singapore


One thing stuck in my mind on the plane back home- FOOD and shopping.
My nan's daily routine is to get up early, go for her morning walk, go home, get ready to go out for breakfast.
My daily routine is to get up early when she wakes me up, go for her morning walk, go home, get ready to go out for breakfast.
Nan took me to this little corner family-owned noodle shop, SO GOOD. Not my usual Sunday morning fishball noodle soup but SO GOOD! I had to go back before I left Ipoh. Also I recommend ordering the noodles dry, not in soup form. 




LOL that is all the photos I took while I was in Ipoh. The rest are stored in my iCloud, or posted on my Instagram story which you should have seen...

This trip wouldn't have been enjoyable if it wasn't for that certain someone who had to literally run around town just so I can get MY stuff done. Thank you! That is all... the rest was said before I entered the bus.




*Singapore*

I arrived two hours before Serene, I was exhausted from flying. More exhausted from the 2 hours freaking delay from AirAsia due to some engineering problem which caused an almost-cancelled-flight, thanks a lot AirAsia but no thanks.

We didn't do much on our first day there except I caught up with someone and literally could not recognise him for 2 seconds until he turned his back on me and went 'oh sorry wrong person'. His hairstyle changed, his dressing was different but that smirk was still there. I've missed this bastard. 

I am also never walking along Orchard Road for however long we walked for. I think we have had enough of that foodcourt we walked passed 4...5? 7? times.
But I think the highlight of the day was prawn fishing, it was really testing my patience. But I am so proud that the person who caught all the prawns did something compassionate. Not sure if Serene caught something up there though... 




HOWEVER, LET US  MOVE TOWARDS DAY 2

We started off the day at China town. Sight seeing- lots of 'take one of me please' and 'one more'. 














And then we went to Little India. Btw, if you are planning to visit Singapore, better get your comfortable walking shoes on.
It was my first time visiting Little India, interesting! I mean, nothing that I have not seen before but interesting! Of course we had to get henna done...
My hesitation was- work is going to kill me but I am brave LOL








I am also reaaaaalllyyyy missing the person who is constantly standing behind me taking a million photos saying 'wait' or 'it's too dark'. 

We moved forward to Arab Street. I felt like I was in the Middle East. Thanks Serene for suggesting to go to these cool places!









Photos following this in my editing software are the ones of me and Serene in the Art Science Museum. I got angry while editing so you might/might not see them near future.

But overall, it was a good trip. Not sure if you read my last post but it was the summary of my whole trip. I better stop here before I miss my friends and fam more than I should have because it is all I am thinking of right now. I feel the way I felt 9 years ago, horrible that I have left my friends and fam and that I hate it where I am now.

 My next post should be 6 months later, see you on my instagram story ;)

Personal Journal-

Journey home as an adult felt different yet welcoming. My memory of getting to places is vague. New buildings around almost every corner, unfamiliar alleys under construction; every object in my grandmother's house brought back memories, the everlasting greenery around the little town I call home. The smell of food from different hawker stalls brought back good times on Sunday mornings.

I approached the big black metal structure and unlocked the never padlocked gates. As I stood infront of that familiar place, I realised time paused while I have been busy paving my own road. I waved at a recognisable face but to only get a response after introducing myself- again. It only took a few years for wrinkles to stretch deep into the skin and footsteps pacing slower to none. Perhaps things don't change, but appearances and memories do.

Good friends around me are getting on with their daily life routine. Some are just starting out, some dreading to clock in, one even started a little family. I realised how much I've missed their company, especially the dash of tease they apply in every verbal sentence and the blank canvas in their eyes when I become myself.  Even though our conversation archive keeps getting bumped towards the end of the line every other day, but when we start typing it was as if we left the conversation yesterday. They are such irreplaceable people and I thank them for our friendship. Just hope it stays this way- am I asking for much?

As I reached the due date of my travels, I reflected on my friendship and family relations. I am glad to have met up with the people I truly care about and hope it does not stop here. Wherever I go I think of them, whatever I do I want to include them.

Until next time. But for now, I will keep them in my blessings.

White Out





With the weather warming up, all I want to be clothed in is linen. 
I paired my white Bardot pants (similar here) with this Cmeo Collective top 
Sort of gave a relaxed yet chic vibe.

Although I am really enjoying prac and I am placed in a classroom full of chat-your-ears-off children and a wonderful mentor, I just can't wait to be finished.
But then I thought to myself, what happens when I am actually on the job, will I be dreading for the year to end?
We always want what we don't have.

I hope you have a lovely day/week/ rest of the year.

Photos are of course by Magnum <3

Autumn to Winter






Can't seem to remember the last time I wore stockings, makes me feel like a little girl strutting around in squeaky shoes when I do.
We finally got to visit this orchard where sleep mode is slowly turning on as middle of winter is approaching. I wish we came earlier to see the warm blood orange everyone experienced, it looked magical. 
Now, wind pricks when night falls, legs turning into living stones.

This red dress has little bell sleeves that does not give me extra long limbs. I've had it for such a long time yet this is my first time breaking it out of my packed wardrobe. (I tried looking for dupes for this dress incase you want one to own, but it's either off the shoulder or out of stock, sorry :/). 
Mid 2017 has also been stop-buying-start-wearing situation.

I am at the point where I can't wait to find out what my future looks like, but not ready to be a responsible adult, yet. Remember those days I would look at my sisters thinking "can't wait to be that age and do whatever I want". Little did I know doing what I want also comes with bills and extra mindfulness. 
I'll blog again soon, maybe about e skincare/makeup to change things up a little, comment (or you don't HAVE to) and let me know?! idk.

Anyways, enough about me. What about you? How have you been?
