    Gaya Island Getaway

    It’s been slightly more than a week since I moved out of my apartment in the Netherlands and flew back to Singapore at the end of my student exchange in Europe. The past 6 months have been nothing short of amazing and returning home feels like a jolt back to reality… but not before a final vacation with my beloved family on Gaya Island, a tropical retreat located off the coast of Kota Kinabalu in Sabah.

    I spent my 4 days on the island slipping into food comas, mingling with starfish and jellyfish in the ocean (amongst other sea critters) and kayaking along the coast of the resort’s private beach. Getting used to the heat and humidity in this part of the world isn’t too bad when you have a pool and the sea to jump into whenever the weather gets too warm to bear. Button-downs have gone back to becoming my go-to pieces for this weather, and I have been sporting mostly flared pants or loose trousers for the past week.

    Scroll down to view some of my favourite snaps from my island vacation, aside from the ones that are already up on my Instagram. One particular snap below features my younger brother, who decided to jump in and strike a pose beside me, moments before we were due to leave the island at the end of our stay. Enjoy!

    The Finale: Copenhagen

    I was in Copenhagen over the past weekend and in the earlier part of the week, together with my uncle, who was in Europe for a short visit. The city made it to my list of favourite places in the world – everything was so delightfully artsy and hip (do people still use this word?) and I loved every bit of it. Personal experience led me to realize that it was better to discover a city without having high prior expectations, and it was only after doing a bit of travelling myself that I started to discover what I really wanted to gain out of these travels. There’s a lot of talk about wanderlust floating around on the internet and I used to tell myself that I wanted to go out and see the world and everything that it has to offer. It was only after I got thrown into that world that I realized that what I thought I wanted didn’t really match up to what I really needed. Travelling shouldn’t be a checklist of places and sights that we have to strike out as quickly as possible, but rather, a collection of eye-opening experiences and discoveries that help you to grow with every new adventure that you take. I’m thankful that I got the chance to embark on a few of such adventures, and I do hope that there will be many more to come.

    Self-reflection and personal thoughts aside, Copenhagen was definitely an experience that I hope I will get to relive again in the near future. I was lucky to have my uncle with me, and being every bit of the artist that he is, he knew exactly where to go and which spots to see during our 3-4 day stay. Freetown Christiania is definitely a must-go, and I enjoyed discovering cafes and street art in the neighbourhood of Vesterbro where I was staying. Be sure to drop by the flea market at Onkel Danny’s Plads if you are in the city on a Sunday. We got lucky and found it by pure coincidence.

    Here are my favourite snaps of Copenhagen. Enjoy!

    London Calling

    “You’re only spending one day in London?!”

    I’ve gotten that reaction from several people when I told them about the little time that I had in London, when really, I only had slightly more than 4 hours (between bus journeys) to spend in the city. Yes, 4 hours! I suppose little time is better than none at all, and lucky for me, I had a guide who knew how to make the most out of it. My Korean friend was staying in London for a couple of days and had done some sightseeing before I met with him when I arrived in the city, so he became my tour guide for the day. I am a little bummed that I couldn’t stay for much longer, but I told myself that there will definitely be a next time!

    The coat that I wore around London was a find from a vintage store in Prague along Karoliny Světlé in Old Town. Enjoy these snaps!
