Meet My Baby

If you follow me on Instagram or Snapchat, then you probably already know I have a baby. (Hold your horses. No need to congratulate me just yet.) I don’t mean a bun in the oven but more like a pet dog named Pepper. Pepper has been with my family since she was 6 weeks old. […]

My Beauty Makeover in Seoul

Here it is! As requested, I’m finally blogging about my trip to Seoul with Makeup Plus App. Yes, that trip I was talking about here. So I arrived in Seoul around 5am which only means one thing, this girl didn’t get much sleep. Good thing the first thing on our agenda that day was (drumroll […]

The Land of The Thunder Dragon

You know what they say, all good things must come to an end. We’ve now come to the last of my posts about the beautiful kingdom of Bhutan, featuring some of the places I wasn’t able to squeeze into my previous posts. I think I’ve already covered pretty much everything I want to say about […]

Tiger’s Nest

Here comes the main event–our hike to the famous Tiger’s Nest or as locals call it, Takstang Goemba. The impressive monastery seemingly defies gravity, perched atop the edge of a 1200 meter tall cliff. Yes, 1200 meters–which means it’s quite a hike up. Going into it, I was both excited and wary–excited because I’ll finally […]

Do Like The Locals Do

After our trip to the temple of the Divine Madman, our guide Mani brought us to a beautiful hillside to enjoy a quiet picnic lunch. Together with our driver, he carefully laid down a nice comfortable mat for us to sit on and arranged all the warm dishes they prepared for us. It was the […]

Punakha

On the morning of February 2, 2016, we made our way to Punakha’s Chimi Lakhang, more famously known as the Temple of the Divine Madman. It required a short walk from the main road, around the farms and a small village before we got to the temple. Aside from the usual breathtaking views however, what […]

A Home Between Phobijka And Punakha

Traveling across Bhutan isn’t for the weak. Aside from having to adjust to a higher altitude, a lot of time is spent on the road–roads that are not as well-developed as we’re accustomed to. It can sometimes feel like it’s a never-ending merry-go-around, having to drive around in circles making our way up and down […]

Palace Of Bliss

On our fourth day in Bhutan, we made our way to Punakha Valley which was previously the capital of Bhutan until 1955. Although it is considered to be one of the warmest valleys in the country (due to its lower elevation of 1200m above sea level), it was still super cold. I don’t know how […]

Down-To-Earth Bhutan

As mentioned in my previous post, Gangtey has two luxury hotels–one is Gangtey Goenpa Lodge where we stayed and the other is the Amankora Gangtey. Although I prefer Gangtey Goenpa Lodge’s authentic feel, there’s no denying the latter’s appeal. It’s modern minimalist aesthetic (as seen in the first nine photos below) can make anyone feel […]

Gangtey Nature Trail

No trip to Bhutan would be complete without hiking to the Tiger’s Nest but since it’s more or less a 10km hike up, it’s a pretty long hike that needs a little warm up session. This Gangtey Nature Trail is only an easy 2 hour trek around the valley’s wildlife sanctuary so it was a […]
