Lil Updates

Hey guys! :)

Sorry for the lack of updates for the past week! Actually, there was no update at all hahaha...prolly just my Instagram/Twitter/Facebook widgets at the side :P

More work and projects started to come in after Chinese New Year, and also yours truly fell sick too so been staying at home sticking tissues into my nostrils the whole time. So, nothing too glamorous to blog about :P

I truly miss this space even after just 1 week. I remember the times when I would update only like, once a month. Baddddd blogger whom I promised to get rid of. So I guess I am showing some improvements, eh? ;)

This post is all about little updates here and there. You would have probably known from following my Instagram/Twitter/Facebook as I update very often about my whereabouts and happenings. But nothing beats blogging where I can express myself in more than just 140 characters ;)

Anyways, am leaving for Bangkok in less than 24 hours and I'm stoked!!! From the way I sound, I think you can tell that I'm a newbie/first-timer. Hahahah. Seems like almost everybody around me has been to BKK! Some of them even go there every quarter of the year, and I can't wait to find out why it is so addictive myself. I'm very positive that I'll love BKK because there's really nothing to dislike about shopping, food, night life and massages right?

The best part is that I'll be going with a bunch of really, really close friends whom I feel absolutely comfortable with. From my experience, it really can be a kill joy if you travel with people who are fussy and want things to only go their way. No matter how beautiful the place is, as long as you're not with the right company, you wouldn't be able to fully enjoy because they'll just make life difficult for everybody.

How this trip came into place was pretty random too. Was yumcha-ing with my wedding photographer Vincent, wedding coordinator Li-hsia and Pat the Elephant and the husby one fine night at Brussels in November last year. That midnight itself was AirAsia's cheap tickets promo. While at that, we jokingly started to plan trips to BKK, Taiwan, London, Japan, etc etc which gave the guys quite a heart attack especially when we just returned from our honeymoon in Bali at the time hehe. 

Who knew that within just a few hours, we confirmed the destination, days, and who we'll be going with. Went home, and all of us were busy booking tickets to BKK. Within a few hours, everything was confirmed! :)

Waited for a good 3 months plus for this trip. Busy with our daily lives and tadddaaaa, we're going tomorrow before dawn! 

The girls are very determined to make this trip worthwhile and fruitful, so we're making sure than we plan well so that we wouldn't waste any time wandering around/getting lost in BKK. Been doing lots of research by reading reviews, blogs, and asking friends on my social media platforms. 

Super touching when everybody was so willing to share whatever they know. Some even typed out a whole essay at the comments about precisely where to go, when to go, and even which mall to change money with the best rates! :O Some even private messaged me a whole list of things to do, and my ex-boss Sam emailed me a super long and detailed list. Through all these, I feel really loved and just super uber touched :')

The gang entrusted me with the responsibility of planning the itinerary. I feel like a blind leading the blind la hahahah! This is why this blog post is short (well, kinda) as I still haven't come up with the itinerary yet :')

Before I go, here's another update!


I CHOPPED OFF MY HAIR AGAIN!

It's been 3 months since my last haircut on the first day of the year. Though I really liked the length and all, I felt it lacked shape and style. So decided to get a bob haircut that I've always wanted to try, and went to my trusted hair saloon, Cut! Studio for a haircut.

Lex, my hairstylist for almost 5 years now did a great job as usual. Took him more than an hour to perfect this haircut, and I really love it :)

So far only one picture of my new hair as I've been busy sticking tissues into my nostrils. Haven't been fit for picture so yeah, no pictures of my new hair.

Hoping to fully recover before my BKK trip tomorrow. 
Will update all about it when I come home! ;)


P/S: Anywhere to shop/eat/party/massage in BKK that I must know?? Please share by leaving comments below! Thanks guys! :)



love, careen
