I’ve written Niigata as one of the cities I would want to visit this year since my sister is currently working there but it seems like it won’t happen this trip. My family already planned to go to Kyoto and Tokyo and of course I want to be with them. Although, I would want to see more places such as Hokkaido and Nagasaki by May (my birthday month), nothing is final yet. Let’s cross our fingers together for that. For now, check out the rest of my travel bucket list destinations here.
Tadaima! (I’m home!) Back in Hyogo-ken (prefecture). Fun fact: I’ve lived in Japan for about 6 years and 3/4 of it was spent here in Hyogo-ken. But where is Hyogo-ken? Most of the people who ask don’t know much about it so as an introvert whenever I’m asked “where do you live?”, I’d usually just say Osaka or Kobe. Haha! Introvert problems. I don’t really like explaining things over and over. Anyway since this is a blog, I’ll answer your question properly in this post.
Hi guys! I just got back to Japan last Wednesday with my grandparents and I’m going to stay here this spring. Imagine my excitement as a big fan of the colour pink, flowers and in general the season of spring. First things first, what snacks to buy?
My staple travel must-visit are cafes. I sometimes skip all the historical sites (like what we did in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia) but I’ll never skip on visiting cute / instagrammable cafes. Of course, we have to eat! It’s always a bonus to find cafes with pretty interiors but good coffee is a must!
Still on a winter high! I didn’t expect to be able to see snow this year although I’ve secretly written it on my planner. A simple sentence, “I want to see snow.” I didn’t even write when or how but it happened. Thank you, Universe! Thus, I want to share with you some of the things I wanted to do / I’ve done during winter.

Hi guys! Just want to do a quick “checking in” post. We’re here in Vietnam for Tet (Vietnamese New Year) holiday. Continue Reading
Last Wednesday (January 18th, 2017), I was sent to Osaka (Thank you, Cebu Pacific Air, Universal Studios Japan, Hotel New Otani Osaka and JR West) to blog. It felt so surreal, it’s my first all-expense paid trip since I started blogging. I wasn’t expecting to check one (Osaka) off my travel bucket list for 2017 that fast. Thank you so much to everyone who has been part of this amazing journey. When I arrived, I couldn’t stop myself from smiling, laughing and feeling kilig (giddy) all at once. Continue Reading
