Bali -- Day 1

Our first day in Bali got us all really excited and ready to explore the island.  The day seemed very promising from the moment we woke up.  Everything was perfect!  Of course my definition of perfect would be clear, blue skies and Mr. Sun coming out to play.  We didn't get to have breakfast in the morning since we woke up a tad bit late just in time for brunch.  Little did we know that we were headed to one of Bali's popular restaurants.

Off to Bali

I've been trying to save this post up for times like these.  Oh how I long to be hopping from airport to airport at this time of the year and be somewhere else other than Macau.  The weather here as of now is just plain "ugh".  First of all, there's the thick fog in the mornings where buildings are not visible.  The grounds are wet and the humidity is just not growing on me.  I've been trying my best not to let the weather get to me, but there are times when I just can't help myself from being like this.

I wish the sun would come out already and the skies would clear up.  I'd really love to see that light shade of blue in the sky again.

Anyway, the photos above were taken en route to Bali and I can't tell you how excited I was to get on the plane.  In fact, I'm looking forward to the day when I'll be able to step foot on a plane again, just because flying is fun.  Aaaah the joys of travelling!  Honestly, it's what makes life interesting for me and it's what keeps me motivated.  The thought of being able to see the world bit by bit is something I would work for.

Question of the day:  What keeps you motivated?

Oh Happy Days!

Gone are the days when I had the privilege of sleeping at dawn and waking up in the afternoon.  Life as an adult is not as promising as it seemed to me as a student.  Well, what did I know then?  I haven't experienced having to earn for a living at that time.  And now, there are times when I wish I could go back to being a student who knew nothing of budgeting salaries and saving up as much as one can.  Don't get me wrong, there are a lot of perks that comes with being an adult but for once I wish I knew what to do with my life and it's not as easy as deciding what movie to watch or which restaurant to book for a dinner date.  It's more than that because you'll have to think way beyond and actually see where you want to be in the next decade or so.

New York City -- Day 4

This is the last set of photos that I'll be sharing with you regarding my adventure in the Big Apple.  Time flew by oh-so-quickly and I'm so glad I decided to travel to NYC even if I was alone at that time.  It did not only teach me to be independent, but it taught me to be wise and most importantly, it taught me to get out of my comfort zone.

New York City -- Day 3

I have once again been slacking up on blog posts, but I've a pretty good reason which is that I've got a new job!  Yay!  Now I know the new job doesn't require me to work on weekends and stuff, but I've just been so caught up in "living in the moment" and hanging out with friends and family.  Okaay, enough with the excuses.  So here's a new post/photo diary about my third day in the Big Apple.

New York City -- Day 2

Isn't it amazing how time flies?  It's Christmas one minute and the next thing you know it's a whole new year once again.

I'm not quite done with my travel posts, but I'm trying to do my best to blog about them as much as I can because they're so long overdue...  Anyway, this is about my second day in New York where I spent the whole day out trying to see the city on a bus.  Now I like bus tours because you get to see most of the skyscrapers and other attractions the city is famous for from the outside, so even if you aren't able to go inside a particular store or building while you're on the tour bus, at least you'd know it's there and can walk back or hop off to check it out some other time.
