Europe’19 (Part 2): Spent my birthday weekend in Vienna, Austria

Europe Vienna Trip

Vienna, the City of Dreams.

This city, one of the most vibrant cultural hotspots in Europe, has been home to artists, composers and musicians globally. It also played an important role and influence on classical music. Part of my Europe trip itinerary last month was to visit Vienna in Austria, after about a week in Poland. We drove for about 4.5 hours from Kraków, Poland, and it was quite an easy drive on the autobahn (or highway). We spent 4D3N in Vienna before moving off to Prague, Czech Republic.

Europe’19 (Part 1): Packed my luggage to Poland

Visit Poland, Warsaw and Krakow

Europe has been a continent that captured my hearts since I was little. There’s just something about the European architecture that makes me fall in love. I’m no architecture buff but the charm of the classical/gothic/renaissance buildings unique to European cities ignites my romantic self.

Just last month, I went on a business trip to Berlin for ITB Berlin 2019, and fortunately, had the chance to extend my stay in Europe. My boyfriend and I decided to explore the central/eastern part of Europe, specifically in Poland, Austria and Czech Republic. Because we had such an interesting time, I had to blog about the places we went and some recommendations! First stop – off to Poland!

Dressing stylishly for Winter & Style Challenge in Seoul: Fashion

Dressing stylishly for Winter & Style Challenge in Seoul

It’s always a dilemma when it comes to the question of, “What do I wear today?” This is especially so when you’re travelling, isn’t it? I often find myself not being able to pack light. I always want to bring the entire season’s fashion trend with me so that I can have choices. The fact is that you only have got 23-30kg to fly with even after your crazy shopping so no over-packing!

My recent Seoul trip taught me never to try bringing my entire wardrobe again because ultimately, I was re-wearing some of my comfy sweater pieces over my thermal wear. I ended up with a couple of clothes unworn so, here are some tips and OOTDs (Outfit Of The Day) from my Seoul searching trip earlier this month, just to give you an idea of what to dress for the winter season. I’ll be ending the post with a Style Challenge video too!

Seoul searching in fabulous South Korea

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!~

I just came back from Seoul, Korea, recently and I’m still wishing I was back in the cold, with occasional snow while walking down the shopping streets of Garosu-gil, Hongdae and Myeongdong.

Travelling to Seoul, South Korea

It’s 25 years into my life and it was my virgin visit to the popular travel destination, South Korea, to attend a K-Beauty conference – Made in Korea (MIK) 2017 – courtesy of MyFatPocket. It was my first time travelling with MFP’s Editor, Xinyi (@xinyicyndisoh) too. This short trip was a rather fruitful one as I got acquainted with many K-Beauty brands that are looking to expand to our tiny little red dot, ate many local dishes and bought even more makeup!

Before all the beauty reviews continue to populate Paradeoflove, I just want to pen down some of the interesting things I encountered in this metropolitan city, including beauty recommendations, food I’ve tried and some of the Instagram-worthy spots for your OOTDs in your next trip.

Travelling in Summer… Or Maybe Not?

Travelling in Summer

Summer Vacation… Not?

Summer vacation is a time when memories are made. It’s the most exhilarating season, as destinations gleam in the sunlight, inviting you to leave a footprint. It’s no doubt that the sun is great, but living in Singapore where we get the scorching sun all year round, I’m thinking twice about going on a summer holiday to be exposed to more sun and heat. I know we’re transiting into Fall now but well, the wanderlust in me is acting up, so I just wanted to share my thoughts about Summer Travels.

How about Autumn/Winter?

Honestly, I’d rather travel to cooler destinations such as Australia because this continent’s summertime is not in sync with the others. Where it’s summer mostly in the States, or the European cities, it’s usually Autumn/Winter in the months of May to August, which means cold weather! I mean, why spend a bomb to experience summer when you get it all year round?
