A Drunken Pirate Feast

I’ve crushed seventeen men’s skulls between me thighs!  #JustSaying

It has been a while I’ve been “on board”, to a pirate ship.  photo 20140917_191733_zpsa5349e95.jpg

We both were feasting on the tasty and tender Lamb Rotisserie! photo 20140917_195508_zpsc152ce81.jpg

Got ourselves a place at the bar while watching the piratender serving wine and beer. I guess we got ourselves an overwhelmed spot. photo 20140917_195646_zps743d0788.jpg

Little Miss Sunshine

The Little Miss Sunshine failed to shine for the past couple of weeks.

The superhero radar sensed it and surprised me with a stalk of sunflower for the first time. (He usually surprises me with roses) Perks me up with small little surprises but after a little while, I was all down and scattered again. Really, really can’t wait for the stormy days to be over.

I was in a meeting when one of my colleagues sent me this pic.IMG_20140910_2 Struggling each day to be okay.IMG_20140911_1IMG_20140911_5#TheLittleThingsInLife

My AirAsia Free Seats

I have been globe trotting since 2009 and I am proud that I have been to all the capital of the countries in the South East Asia, topping up to the fact that I am never a shopaholic and hence, I have landed my feet in the soil of these places in the past 5 years, chasing sunrise and sunsets, admiring the beauty of God’s creation while it lasts at most outskirts of the countries I visited. I started traveling when I was still in college, that was when Air Asia came into the picture, making all my backpacking trips affordable and kept within budget (usually at an approximate RM1800 all in).

2013 : Busan, Korea
All the way to Haedong Yonggungsa Temple for the spectacular view and this is the first time I bought my parents a trip which I don’t think its possible without Air Asia. photo DSC_0137_zps31519bba.jpg

2012 : Chiangmai, Thailand
I ended up here alone because I dreamt of the White Temple in Chiangrai a year before. Hence, I bought the flight ticket during the Free Seats promo was launched at RM 250 from KL to Chiangmai and return. Yup, the stripy cat was my birthday gift that year :)

2012 : Myanmar
A country which consists of a majority of Buddhist devotees as well as poverty. That’s when I spent one full day in Yangon exploring the temples, then hop onto a 10-hour night bus to Bagan for the sunrise and more temple hopping on a horse cart. Followed by renting a bicycle the next day to explore the place myself and start distributing small change (their currency is known as Kyat) to the local kids. Another meaningful attempt in a foreign country.Photobucket

2011 : China
When I first introduced smart phone in an ancient culture ;) The headgear is heavy! First time taking night train having to sleep in the train many times! Welcome to China!

Pink Guava

2011 : Laos
In Laos, explore the local food!Hawker

2011 : Lake Toba
Took this ferry to Samosir Island. Broke down a couple of times in the middle of the lake!

The Last Ferry

2010 : Philippines
Trust me, I spent less than half a day in Manila, first time missing a flight (which I was supposed to head to Vigan City), launched Plan B which was to take a night bus (approximately 8 hours) to Vigan and bought myself a 20Peso street ice cream at Vigan City.

2009 : Cambodia
My very first backpack trip took place with another few of my blogger friends, we traveled to Phnom Penh and Siem Reap. We did all the must-do, catching sunrise at 4.30am, temple hopping around Ang Kor Wat, visiting the  and many others. It was all memorable.

That’s when #ALSIceBucketChallenge has not been introduced, we did the RiceBucketChallenge. Reaching out to the unfortunate locals was the most memorable after all. We bought them over 30kg of rice and clothes knowing that they are also victims from the genocide.Photobucket

 

 … and so … 

 

If I had 10 AirAsia Free Seats, I would go to Mandalay! Why Mandalay? If I can make this possible to share the 10 tickets with my readers to make this trip happen to visit the second largest city in Myanmar to understand the Burmese’s local culture and enjoy the laid back country. Life ain’t about staring at the smart phones and looking for power plug when the battery is flat!

Hence, U Bein Teak Bridge would be my next sunset shot location. A place to see genuine smiles at the same time for you to offer what you can as they will be more than happy to receive from you. Perhaps another so called #RiceBucketChallenge. ;)

The affection when you are able to ease your cravings. I love how that feels. photo IMG_20140817_115907_zpscc63ad8d.jpg

Choices! Oh, ya! Did I mention that I have a new hair colour now? Not blonde though, just that I haven’t got my hair coloured in a long time. photo 20140817_120138_zps79616208.jpg

… and then I fell in love with strawberries. photo IMG_20140817_120515_zps4f67a066.jpg
