Destination | Melbourne+Sydney

After a hiccup with our visas in August 2016, kids and I were so excited we finally made it to Australia. It has been my dream to take them to places I have been and then take them to new places that we all can explore and experience. It is interesting to see these places…

Travel Journal | Australia

This travel journal has taken the longest to complete I think, out of the travel journals I’ve made. One of the reasons was I did not do any of the pages while on this trip because I ran out of batteries on my Instax Share just as I was about to start on it. And…

Travel Journal | Seoul

This post is supposed to be about Australia but at the last-minute our plans changed. We literally decided to go to Seoul the day after my visa to Australia was not released on time. Did not have much time to prepare for this trip and ended up using one of the 1/2 Trip notebook inserts I…

Kyoto & Osaka Book

A few days before our last trip to Japan, I managed to cram some time into finishing this book that has been in my to-list since last year! Somehow I started it but never managed to finish it. So I made sure that this was finished and sent to the printer before we went on the Tokyo trip….

Travel Journal | Tokyo

It has been a while since I last posted anything on my blog. Sorry for that. I’ve been dealing with a lot of work stress leading up to our Tokyo trip. Fortunately I had an extra handmade TN insert I had made a while ago so used it for documenting our trip to Japan. The…

Travel Journal | Taipei 2016

A few weeks ago, I made my way to Taipei again for a whirlwind 3-day trip to get some personal matters sorted out. As it was a short trip, I decided to make use of the unused  pages in my TN insert I used before. My entries this time is quite a contrast to my…

Travel Journal | TAC + MNL

A last-minute decision to make a trip to my hometown to visit family was pretty much a blur from the time before we left and the time we came back. If you follow me on IG, I posted about moving to a new apartment, which in itself was a BIG STRESS. The unpacking and the…

Travel Journal | Taipei

As with all my travels the past few years, I document these as much as I can. On the recent Taipei trip (read here and here), I’ve made the documenting even simpler with only a few basic stuff that I brought with me, packed into my Delfonics Inner Carrying pouch. Here’s a look at the…

Destination | Taipei (Part 2)

Here’s a continuation from the previous Taipei post. Day 4 This day was more about doing errands and ticking ‘everything’ off my list before I leave. So I first went to Di Hua Jie which wasn’t too far from the hotel to get some of the food/snacks I wanted to bring back to Shanghai. I…

Destination | Taipei (Part 1)

It has been a couple years since my last trip to Taipei. The last trip was only for 3 days, I think, and it was not a great one. And even though this trip was purely to get some papers done, I had this list of places to go to and things to do, taking advantage…
