Travelogue : 2016 in Review

Sunday, December 25, 2016

First of all, I'm ecstatic having just finished a new look for this blog. Making sure to modify things here and there was absolutely time-consuming (phew). It finally has a full-width photo page (which I really like), editorial look layout, a proper about page, and a newsletter button which you can find on the sidebar. Such a right timing to accompany my mandatory yearly travelogue post: Travelogue 2014, Travelogue 2015

2016 has been a year full of both good and bad surprises, but the biggest lessons of the year are definitely to accept things as it is and learn that we cannot control everything. It's been great with all the travels, challenges, new friends, and opportunities. I'm truly thankful and look forward to another new journey next year.

For this year's travelogue, I'm using The Moon Lists project as a reference to write down some memories during the trip in a particular place. I'll highlight each of the places with a few keywords of interest. Making it easier for me to remember things and a more pleasant way for you to read my stories.

As the author said, "I have found it interestingly difficult to remember what has happened in the near past; consider the idea a sort of checking in with how time is spent, recalled, reflected on."

Travelogue hint: Switzerland, France, the Netherlands, (my extended birthday trip to) the Czech Republic, and Sukabumi.
Enjoy this last post of the year and hope you have a wonderful time with family and loved ones!

Colors of Singapore

Sunday, December 18, 2016

Going back for a short weekend trip to Singapore after 6 years were exhilarating. The main agenda of this trip was to attend Neon Lights Festival where two of my favorite musicians, Lucy Rose and Foals performed under the same sky! I don't really remember the city has so many colors to offer in a different neighborhood. Although walking in the middle of Christmas light in Orchard road was completely dreamy, this time, my favorite picks are Tiong Bahru and Gillman Barracks art residency. 

Here are some photos from my mobile phone taken during the three-day trip!
