It is already known to my old readers about my passion for travel and my dream job – to be a cabin crew.
Recently, I made a step towards that dream.

The change in course (and school) that I’ve been deciding on for months have been given action.
Yes, I feel a little guilty for leaving my former school.
I can’t say anything bad about the school, professors, students and the other school personnel there.
They have all been nice to me.
Even though it was risky transferring schools even if I transferred to a sister school (it isn’t guaranteed that the same treatment will be given to me as what my former school have), I still pushed through with the transfer.
Why?
Because I value myself.
I want to do what I think will make me a better individual and do what I think will help me to achieve my dreams.
If making that move entails risking my study environment, extending my school years and be forced to not spend as much time with my friends from my former school, then so be it.
Being in a university, the main purpose is for the student to learn, build character and build relationships.
One needs to focus on that.
What students sometimes don’t understand about university life is that it isn’t an escape from secondary school.
Your student life will NOT be easier.
Sometimes it will seem like it but it isn’t and though that is the case, it should not be the focus.
Self-improvement should be.

School started last week and it marks a new chapter in my life.
I am now officially a HRIM – Travel and Tourism Management student.

February 5, 2014

Today, I started with my law of attraction.

What would I like to attract?

A good future.

Even though I have been talking about it on my last few posts, I will still explain it a bit.

I would like to shift courses.

From Marketing Management, when I pass the entrance exam, I will be under a Tourism Management program instead.

This is so because I realized just a few days back what and where I would really like to see myself someday.. and that is being a cabin crew for an international airline.

My law of attraction basically involves researching about the industry, my dream company *Emirates Airlines*, cabin crew tips, interview questions and cabin crew testimonies.

I have just started today but I’ve already learned a lot.

Also, I gained a deeper understanding about what a cabin crew really is.

What other people can see are only the glitz and glamour of the job but it is more than that.

The cabin crew are not just there for display.

They are the ones responsible for everyone on the plane.

They serve and think of everyone before themselves.

To be a cabin crew, you have to be selfless, alert, kind in every way and most of all, patient.

For all the testimonies I’ve read, I know that I still have a long way to go before I can be the best flight attendant I can be.

One thing I can assure myself though is that I will not stop until I reach my dream and not only be a better cabin crew but also a better individual.

That is it for now ^^

February 3, 2014

Since I’ve decided that I will push through with taking an entrance examination so that I can study Tourism, I wanted an inspiration.

After researching and checking out different airlines, there was one that really stood out for me.

It is no other than Emirates Airlines.

Aside from their crew being multi-cultural, the numerous blogs and websites that I’ve read highlighted how great their crew training is.

Yes, it scares me a bit but I know that if given a chance, I’d readily grab it and train as hard as I can to be the best cabin crew I can be.

SERIOUSLY!

I am 100% sure that I will take the opportunity.

They even have the best facilities that make their training seem real!

For now though, Emirates Airlines will serve as an inspiration for me to better myself in this new endeavor I’m about to face.

I’ll throw away all the shyness in me and release my stronger self.

I will do my best at the university I’m about to attend and will participate at organizations so that I will be trained well.

I want to beef up my resume so that when I graduate, Emirates Airlines will notice me and I’ll hopefully be given a chance to be part of their cabin crew.

For now, I still am not sure if they are accepting interns from the Philippines.

When I need a company for my internship though, I hope they do.

I’ve been reading and reading about being a cabin crew at their airline and it excites me more every time!

I can guarantee that this won’t be the last time I’ll be writing about Emirates Airlines.

What do you think about my new inspiration? 🙂

The 16 Reasons You Need To Drop Everything And Travel Right Now

LIFE •  • JAN 15, 11:44AM

There’s a characteristic of our generation that can only be described as severe restlessness. I am not specifically referring to the number of friends you have who are prescribed Adderall; although that’s definitely another cultural trend I could discuss in length. What I’m talking about is a restlessness of the soul, the wandering spirit, a culture of nomads.

We’ve been bred on this notion that we are going to do it differently than our parents; we’ll be adventurous, experience life to the fullest. We’ve sat over lunch with our friends choosing our post-graduation plans, always teetering over the line of what we knew as the safe choice and what we knew as the adventurous, spirited one. We talked about living in Brazil in a house by the beach, spending days on the hammock and driving taxis at night.

We thought about moving to London, buying expensive rain gear and renting a studio on Piccadilly Circus. Of course every woman dreams of giving it all up and finding a cozy flat with a view of the Champs-Élysées, spending weekends sitting in corner cafes and eating macarons by Place de la Concorde. But reality always sets in and ruins the daydream.

Many of us have chosen the road more traveled, giving into the societal pressures of securing a job and a 401k. We’ve resigned ourselves to desks with a window seat, looking out on the cold streets of our increasingly disillusioned present. Sometimes, in between deadlines and Facebook stalkings, we find ourselves thinking about that corner bistro in Paris or the cozy hammock in Brazil. We let our minds wander to the wet streets of London and the architectural beauty of Prague. Then we begin to wonder, “What the hell am I still doing here?”

Whether you have this realization once a month, once a week or even once a day, it’s one too many. Your life is fleeting, and your youth will pass even quicker. You are too young to be settling for the nine-to-five, and there should be nothing holding you back from doing what your innermost urges tell you. So stop whining to all your friends and be the adult you claim to be; buy yourself the next ticket to anywhere.

You’re young

Life moves fast and there is no better time to pursue those inner urges than in your 20s. This is the freest you will ever be, unshackled by the chains of mortgages, insurance policies and general responsibility. You are responsible to no one but yourself and your own whims. Now is the time to stay up until 5 am as the waves of the Moroccan beach spray your tanned, toned body. Now is the time to eat whale testicle at a local dock in Seoul. Now is the time to fall in love with everything and anything.


You’re more willing to take risks

With less to lose, there’s more to gain. Life is about moving outside your comfort zones, about embracing the present moment, even if it scares the sh*t out of you. Right now is the time for you to meet Spanish strangers at a café and let them whisk you off to a party in the Latina quarter of Madrid. Only now will you rent a moped in Thailand for five dollars with absolutely no idea where to go. It’s these years that you’re supposed to make mistakes, get into trouble and learn to live life as openly as possible.


To be inspired

There’s a reason that some of the most influential and greatest artists of American literature spent their most creative years in Europe. There’s nothing more inspiring or life-changing than being engulfed in the beauty and culture of another world, another life. The colors, the smells, the people, the architecture, the squares of another city are enough to renew your soul and ignite your inhibitions. Besides, how else are you supposed to write your novels?


To humble yourself

It’s a valuable life lesson to live as the exile, the foreigner. In no other time or point in your life will you feel the cutting chill of being the outsider as you will living in a country that isn’t your own. You’re the new guy, the tourist no one takes seriously, and that will not only humble you, but give you a sense of empathy you never had before. It’s this grounding that will make you a better person, a more well-rounded person who will come home with a larger sense of what it means to be alive.


For the stories

A wise person once told me that life is a collection of experiences. Your life, and the legacy you leave, will be as full or as empty as you make it. Don’t you want to be one of those older people with countless stories of their youth spent traveling through the Arabian desert or hitchhiking from France to Spain? Don’t you want to tell your friends about the six months you spent living with a Spaniard, sipping sangria and learning to salsa dance?


For the friends who will play ambassadors

The people you meet abroad will play foreign ambassadors for the rest of your life. You will find yourself developing relationships in obscure corners of the world, conversing with people with different ideals, languages and cultures. You will find yourself with connections all over the world, coming back home only to know you now have friends all over the world. Next time you go to Sweden or Australia, you’ll not only have a place to stay, but a friend to show you the real parts of that country.


For the romance

If you’re in a sexual rut, there’s no better reason to pack up and head for somewhere new. Only in Europe can you play out your wildest fantasies of moonlit dinners at bistro cafés by candlelight. Only in South America can you go dancing with a man who whispers sweet nothings in your ear in a language you only understand through the longing of his words. Only somewhere else can you be whoever you want and let your inhibitions fall to the wayside. Shack up with an Italian for a few weeks and let yourself enjoy the idea that it doesn’t matter what, or who, you do while you’re “just visiting.”


For the food

Is there any better reason to travel than for the food? Seriously, how many days are you going to settle for Chipotle before you realize you could get four Spanish burritos that actually taste like “the original”? Don’t you want to try a real croissant? Who knows, maybe you’ll learn how to make paella or find some Italian cookies you’ll have imported to the US for the rest of your life. (Then you’ll be able to tell people you found the most delicious cookies in Sicily, and now you just have toget them shipped.)


To find yourself

There’s no better way to find yourself than to disappear from the daily grind and get lost somewhere along the Atlantic. Only once you remove yourself from the familiar can you find the truth. Only when you are abroad can you see your past life, your home, with a renewed sense of clarity. Going abroad gives you the time, space and moments of solitude you need for self evaluation and exploration.


Because once is never enough

Even if you went abroad in college, or spent two weeks in Europe after graduation, those memories will never be enough to satiate the longing in your soul. There is only so much you can take in, so many things you can do when you’re with your family on vacation or gaggle of friends. You need to see everything, do everything, again. It’s time to do it the right way, on your own. Because it could take a lifetime to be truly fulfilled by everything the world has to offer and those few times you went abroad should only make you thirsty for more.


For the perspective

A change of perspective is like taking a long deep breath after a long day. It’s important to change things up in life, to look at things from another angle, another way. Only going abroad will give you the distance you need to see your life from a renewed lens. Seeing another way of life is a great way to learn to appreciate your old one. Spending six months trying to communicate in another language will teach you to appreciate your own language and the capacity of those words. Because it’s not until you’ve begun missing home that you truly start appreciating it.


For your soul

Hemingway described Paris as a “moveable feast” and “wherever you go for the rest of your life, it stays with you.” The notorious writer set the standard for embracing life abroad, letting it become part of you. Because even when you go home, part of you will forever be changed by the experiences and renewed sense of self that comes with leaving everything behind and starting anew.


To gain strength

Strength comes from overcoming fears, inhibitions and facing situations that aren’t always within your comfort zone. Only once you’ve left the familiar can you begin to challenge yourself. They say that the strongest people are the ones who faced adversity head on and came out the other end. Only once you’ve been in a situation where you had to dig deep down and find a strength you didn’t know you had can you call yourself a stronger person.


To be an explorer

Why can’t you be the one who sets the trends, the one with the unique style who always has those one-of-a-kind pieces? Why can’t you find that pair of lambskin boots in the mountains of Switzerland from a local farmer’s wife or that spice that’s only grown in the farms of south east Asia. Life is about tasting, trying and finding new things, new experiences and new lessons.


To fall in love

Life is about falling in love with everything. It’s about finding a sense of comfort in a local café or that overwhelming sense of comfort that comes with connecting with a painting at the Prado. It’s about seeing and loving everything as if it’s the first and last time. Only when you’ve left and sought the comforts of another place can you experience the overwhelming joy of falling in love with everything around you for the first time.


To appreciate the moments

Only when you’ve sat at a café in Paris for two hours, watching the people and reading your favorite book that you learn to appreciate the small moments in life. It’s the rolling mountains and the busy outdoor markets of Barcelona that should take your breath away. It’s the miles of rice patties beneath the soft glow of the setting sun that should assuage the aching in your restless soul and introduce you to the simple pleasures that life can bring. Only when you’ve learned to live in the moment, seeing and taking in every second of the now, can you truly say you’ve lived life to the fullest.

First of all I want to greet everyone a happy happy new year!!!

The past year (2013) was a wild ride.

A lot has happened – some under control, some without.

Though no one’s year is expected to be perfect, I have a lot of things to be thankful for the past year.

Let me rewind back to my 2013 and mention just a few…

  1.  March 10 of 2013 was when I made this blog! I have always wanted to have my own blog and write about my interests and other random stuff.
  2. Finished Korean 1 at University of the Philippines, Diliman
  3. Saw Lee Min Ho again this year because of his My Everything concert!!
  4. Ticked something off my bucket list: Wakeboarding.
  5. I joined a group which unfortunately is not active anymore but the few real friends I made there are still my friends now.
  6. I discovered a lot about other people and about myself.
  7. I never stopped learning.
  8. Boracay Getaway for 4 days & 3 nights!
  9. BORACAY PUBCRAWL!!! (Which I plan to repeat!!)
  10. A chance to go to a country I’ve always been interested in. Still wishing it pushes through!!

The list goes on and on and on.

Now, fast forward to the present.. I have a lot of things in mind that I look forward to but since I don’t like to jinx it, I’ll mention it as I achieve it throughout this year.

What I’ll mention though are my New Years Resolutions.

I haven’t really completed my list yet but these are a few of them..

  1. Travel internationally (South East Asian country)
  2. EXERCISE (FOR REAL) at least 4 hours a week.
  3. When drinking, not more than 5 bottles of beer / ~10 shots –just being realistic
  4. No to binge eating
  5. At least one day of “me” day every other month
  6. Will fix my sleep cycle so I can eat breakfast
  7. Monitor and manage finances well
  8. Etc

Apart from those things mentioned above which I want to happen to my life.. there is one thing that I really am wishing for right now.

It is hard to explain at this moment but it can change my life big time. All I’m wishing for my birthday this year is that thing. I hope the opportunity is meant for me and that it’ll be granted to me soon.

wishNo words are enough to express how badly I want that opportunity.

I swear to never waste it and seize every opportunity that will help me be my best self.

________________________________________________

Sorry if this post is a bit mediocre.

I’m really having a writers block but I really wanted to post a blog today.

Since I’m turning twenTEEN in a few days, I plan to write a “What I’ll give my 21 year old self” post and see if I’ll be able to achieve them after a year :>

XOXO

Even though I think I should be ranting about how our flight was cancelled then it was back and now it was officially cancelled again…

I will not.

And it is only because of one thing..

The AirAsiaPhilippines Facebook Team!

I think I am only one of the few people out there that will post about something positive out of a bad situation like this.

So why am I really not ranting right now?

It is because of the following:

  • fast response – one way to calm every customer’s nerves for the time being is to reply to them ASAP. When customers have a bad experience, the first aid ALWAYS is to attend to them as fast as you can. (it is really a long process if you are to submit a complaint on their website..)
  • patient staff – no matter how big or small your concern is, they will surely answer. No matter how much ranting you do or what choice of words you use (not that you should pick bad words), even though it is personally not their fault, they will still respond and apologize if needed.
  • 🙂 —yes, they always have a smiley which subtly tells the customers, “It is my pleasure to attend to your concerns.”
  • accuracy of information – frankly, their official website is not really complete.. or if it is, it is a pain to read such long paragraphs. Luckily, their facebook account is handled by their staff who knows a lot of information that the customers will need.
  • and this boils down to —– THEY KNOW HOW TO VALUE CUSTOMERS. This is the most important point. Being a Marketing Management major, my professors always always always highlight to us how to handle customer service well and how to maintain relationships because without having the trust of your consumers, you’re…..doomed.

My relationship with AirAsia has just started with my first purchase of plane tickets (on their airline) and this is what happened.

Yes, it was an inconvenience for us but because of their staff, I think I’ll let this pass and give them a second chance.

Again, kudos to you, AirAsiaPhilippines Facebook Team!

Keep it up!

—wanderrwithmee


This post is inspired (again) by one of my favourite writers, Jeff Goins.

His article made me think of what I want to do.

We all have aspirations and admit it or not, not everything happens as how we planned it.

And so, no matter how far-fetched it may seem, this is what I want to do..

I’d want to have a television show where I travel all over the world, see unusual places and recommend places & things to do when people travel. ✈

How about you?

What would you do?

—wanderrwithmee


I honestly no know nothing about Brian Lee.

It just so happened that I was on StumbleUpon and I saw this article.

At that time, I was not really down or anything but rather bored – I guess.

It has been awhile since I last read this and now that I am reading it again, it is still as effective.

It motivates you to do those little changes and makes you understand how the world works.

It helped me see the world in another light – a brighter light.

I cannot guarantee that it will have the same effect to you as it did to me but rest assured, it will make a difference.

So here is the original article.

(Note: the text inside the parentheses – ( text ) – are written by me. It contains my personal opinions.)

10 Sentences that Can Change Your Life

By: Brian Lee

The power of a sentence is tremendous. A single destructive sentence can ruin somebody’s life, make your day, or change your mood. Fortunately, there are some sentences that can give us power to go on. We have sorted out 10 powerful sentences that can change your life for the better.

#1 “People aren’t against you; they are for themselves.”

(This, I believe, is so true.

Every person (I think) has asked himself or herself this: “Why does it seem like everyone or everything is against me” – or something similar to that.

What we fail to realize is that maybe they or the world isn’t really against us.

It is just that the right time hasn’t come for what you want to happen.

Also, when we ask help from someone, we shouldn’t expect them to help us always.

They have their own reasons and not everyone explains their side which makes us misunderstand them.

To be able to communicate effectively always is not possible.

This makes a room for misunderstandings and I think this is one thing all human beings must understand and continue to work on.)

#2 “Climb mountains not so the world can see you, but so you can see the world.”

(The world is such a big place and there is so much to learn from it.

One should strive not for fame or for material gain but for knowledge and experience.

Personally, as a self-proclaimed wanderer in my own way, this made so much sense.

I’m not sure on what was the original context behind the quote but I got to relate to this is by relating it to travel.

To climb mountains is to travel ; so you can see the world is to knowledge and experience.

Travel not for the sake of travelling but travel to experience other cultures and new things and from there, you’ll learn about life and the world as a whole.

*This is personally my favourite quote ✈ ♥ )

#3 “You learn more from failure than from success; don’t let it stop you. Failure builds character.”

#4 “The most dangerous risk of all – The risk of spending your life not doing what you want on the bet you can buy yourself the freedom to do it later”

(I’ve written a post before about hesitation.)

 #5 “Go where you’re celebrated, not where you’re tolerated.”

#6 “The person that you will spend the most time with in your life is yourself, so you better try to make yourself as interesting as possible.”

#7 “If you accept your limitations you go beyond them.”

#8 “People often say that motivation doesn’t last. Well, neither does bathing.. that’s why we recommend it daily.”

(Personally, when I feel down at times or when I just feel like it, I go into a “Law of Attraction mode”.

I do this to keep myself motivated and to continuously learn.

I admit that I am online most of the time because I am fond of researching about places and random things that interest me.

As a kind of person who easily gets bored of things (according to my friend—but it is kinda true), I really need constant update so as not to get bored.

When I get bored, I can be the laziest person alive.

TRUST ME.

So for me, this is really helpful.

When things get rough and you feel like there is no hope left, try going into the “Law of Attraction mode” by researching about what you currently want to attract into your life.

Doing it everyday is much better.)

#9 “Everyone you meet is afraid of something, loves something, and has lost something”

(I think this has a connection with the first quote.

Every one is alike in some way.

So don’t feel down and lonely.)

#10 “Comfort is the enemy of achievement.”

(Once you are in your comfort zone, you are restricted.

Restricted in many ways.

So many ways that you miss the chance of improving yourself.

Again, the post I’ve written about hesitation is related to this.)

“This is a great pity and does disservice to both the traveler and the destination, since even tourist towns are more than postcards. They are places where real people live and work. To fail to recognize them as such is not only disrespectful, but also deprive us of one of the most fulfilling experiences of travelling: connecting with people whom we would never have known had we stayed at home.” -Jamina Vesta Jugo

—wanderrwithmee


Even though I haven’t travelled much, I know in my heart that I love travelling.

Just the idea of it makes me jump for joy and it makes my heart skip a beat.

Yes, I am in love with travelling, adventures and everything in between.

Why I love it?

I am not really sure but I just know it.

I have read this article last year and just now, I came across it again.

It inspired me before and now that I’ve read it again, it made me proud of myself.

Yesterday, I booked an unplanned flight to an international destination.

Yes, I only have enough money for airfare as of now and I am still a student but I will of course save up for my travel and not just ask for allowance from my parents.

A lot of people save first and then book a flight after.

I am not sure what has gotten into me yesterday that I just wanted to book it right there and then without even checking out other airlines!

Luckily, what I got was a promo flight.

Anyway, I hope you read this article by Jeff Goins – an amazing writer – and I hope that you’ll be inspired by his piece of art just like me.

And so here it is… 🙂

3 Reasons to Travel While You’re Young by Jeff Goins

 TwitterFacebookGoogle+

The other night, I had a conversation with a young woman who had a number of decisions ahead of her, one of which was whether she should go to grad school or travel the world.I told her to travel. Hands down. No excuses. Just go.She sighed.

Travel While You're Young

“Yeah, but…”

Never were more fatal words spoken:

  • Yeah, but… what about debt?
  • Yeah, but… what about my job?
  • Yeah, but… what about my boyfriend (or dog or car or whatever)?

“Yeah, but…” is pernicious. Because it makes it sound like we have the best of intentions when really we are just too scared to do what we should. It allows us to be cowards, while sounding noble.

Most people I know who waited to travel the world never did. Conversely, plenty of people who waited for grad school or a steady job and traveled still did those things — eventually. Be careful of the yeah-but. The yeah-but will kill your dreams.

I was so stirred by this conversation that I shared it with a group of 30 young adults last night, many who were asking these very same questions.

The life you’ve always wanted

When you get older, life seems to just sort of happen to you. Your youth is a time of total empowerment. You get to do what you want.

But as you mature and gain new responsibilities, you have to be very intentional about making sure you don’t lose sight of what’s important.

So if you still have a reasonable amount of control over your circumstances, you should do what really matters. Because life won’t always be just about you.

During early adulthood, your worldview is still being formed. It’s important to steward this time — to give yourself opportunities to grow. A good way to do that is to travel.

So, young person, travel. Travel wide and far. Travel boldly. Travel with full abandon.

You will regret few risks you take when it comes to this. I promise you that. There are three reasons to travel while you’re young:

1. Traveling teaches you to live an adventure

When you look back on your life, you will have moments of which you are proud and maybe a few you regret. It’s likely that the following won’t be on the latter list:

  • Bicycled across the Golden Gate Bridge.
  • Appeared on Italian TV.
  • Hiked a Mayan ruin.
  • Learned Spanish in three months.
  • Toured Europe by train.

They’re not on mine (fun fact: I’ve done all of the above). So what, then, will be? What choices will you regret making? Holding back. Being afraid. Making excuses. Not taking more risks. Waiting.

While you’re young, you should travel. You should take the time to see the world and taste the fullness of life. It’s worth whatever investment or money or sacrifice of time that may be required on your part.

This is not about being a tourist. It’s about experiencing true risk and adventure so you don’t have to live in fear for the rest of your life.

2. Traveling helps you encounter compassion

In your youth, you will make choices that will define you. The disciplines you begin now will be with you for the rest of your life.

Traveling will change you like little else can. It will put you in places that will force you to care for issues that are bigger than you.

If you go to southeast Asia, you may encounter the slave trade. If eastern Europe, you may see the effects of genocide and religious persecution. If Haiti, you’ll witness the the ugly side Western paternalism.

Your heart will break.

You will begin to understand that the world is both a big and small place. You will have a new-found respect for the pain and suffering that over half of the world takes for granted on a daily basis.

And you will feel more connected to your fellow human beings in a deep and lasting way. You will learn to care.

3. Traveling allows you to get some culture

While you’re still young, you should get cultured. Get to know the world and the magnificent people that fill it. There’s nothing quite like walking alongside the Colosseum or seeing Michelangelo’s David in person.

I can describe the city of San Juan and its amazing beaches and historic sites to you, but you really have to see it for yourself to experience it. You can read all the books in the world about the Great Wall of China or The Louvre, but being there is a different story.

The world is a stunning place, full of outstanding works of art. See it. Do this while you’re still young. Do not squander the time. You will never have it again.

You have a crucial opportunity to invest in the next season of your life now. Whatever you sow, you will eventually reap. Please. For your sake, do this. Because you won’t always be young. And life won’t always be just about you.

So travel. Experience the world for all it’s worth. Become a person of culture, adventure, and compassion.

“What if I’m not young?”

Travel, anyway. It may not be easy to do, but find a way to get out of your comfort zone. It’s really never too late.

But if you haven’t gotten sucked into the routine of life yet, I implore you — travel. It will never be easier than it is right now for you to do that which really matters.

***************************************************************************************************************

So what are you waiting for?

Explore and travel the world!

Live like there is no tomorrow.

As Saint Augustine once said..

 ”The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only one page.”

—wanderrwithmee


No, I don’t travel out of the country often.

Since 2011 though, my sister and I pledged (to ourselves, hahaha) that we ought to ride a plane at least once a year.
It can be a local or an international travel.
2011, we went to Boracay.
2012, we went to Palawan.
And this year, we will be going to…….(secret for now)
I hope I can go to space in the future too!!
Anyway..

It is confirmed!
I paid for my flight yesterday and well, of course aside from the fact that I haven’t gotten a return flight because I’m still waiting for a promo fare and I still have to save for my expenses there, I think there’ll be no reason for this trip not to happen.
Hey, don’t judge.
I’m still a student. 🙂
Excited?
YES!! Very much!

My last international flight if I’m not mistaken was with my grandparents and cousins.
I was in grade school back then when 17 of us went to China.
Of course, my very generous grandparents paid for all of us ^^

Any tips for travelling you want to share?
Feel free to tell them 🙂

SGD!

It may sound a bit crazy but…

Yes, I booked an unplanned flight just a minute ago!

For where it is, I plan to keep it a secret for now.

(Hint: International travel)

I hope I can save enough for a shopping spree though. Hahaha.

I will also visit my cousin who works there because I haven’t seen him for years!

Wish me luck!!

A few years back, a saw a documentary about North Korea. Since then, I’ve been dreaming of visiting that place. 🙂
