Grass is Always Greener

Given that Trader and I are still on our 20s, that automatically translates that him and I cannot really enjoy quiet meals at high-class, ridiculously expensive restaurants with an overpriced bottle of wine. If I were to fly over to Singapore as well, he’d probably help sponsor half of my airline ticket instead of paying […]

Off Days

Trader’s covering for his two colleagues who are on leave right now and doesn’t pay too much attention to me during the daytime. Unfortunately, a friend of mine stayed with me for two evenings thus ensuring that I’m usually busy when the sun comes down. Whereas we’d usually spend an hour or so chatting on […]

When I’m happy in love…

…my best entries don’t come out. All I have are sappy “I’m-so-happy-and-he’s-so-wonderful” type of posts and I know that my readership goes way down. Haha, down from a peak of around 800 readers at my emo peak, to a measely 100 in a day. Bah. Nobody even comments anymore. 🙁 Oh well, that’s all fine […]

Parentsitter

My parents are here for two weekends and have just spent the last couple of days with them in Shenzhen. So far, it’s surprisingly been such a blast and no wonder. We spent the last two days checking out the Windows of the World and the Chinese Cultural Park along with an hour-long massage (RMB35 […]

In a relationship with…

I’ve just updated my Facebook Profile to say “In a relationship with Trader” last week. Inevitably, congratulations poured in from those who knew us back in college, to good friends in Hong Kong who were happy to see that the cat was finally out of the bag. This is the first time that I’ve already […]

To give or not to give?

Despite talking and overanalyzing relationships, I’m still a newbie when it comes to these things. For example, when it comes to gift-giving, where do we draw the line? It all started when Trader tells me that he accidentally punched a hole (!) on his leather shoes with his umbrella. Don’t ask me how but the […]

Day 2 – Cannakale and Pergamon

We wake up early and I once again enjoy the breakfast buffet. Seems that I’ll be eating a whole LOT in Turkey but I cannot help it — they even serve fresh honey off the honey combs. A typical Turkish breakfast would compose of a multitude of breads that you have to slice yourselves. Then, […]

Turkish Delights!

After over half a year of no vacations, decided to cash in and join a Canto-speaking tour to Turkey. No, I cannot speak any Canto but figured that I can easily get by with a reliable tourbook in hand and I was right. Not only were the tours reasonably priced, but given that Turkey’s such […]

Back and well-tanned!

I’m back from a lovely well-deserved 10-day vacation and will update everyone with travel photos and what-else very soon. Going on vacation without your boyfriend can be a liberating and miserable experience. When calls cost HKD23 A MINUTE on both sides, you tend to be more prudent in dialing when either of you miss each […]
