autumn 2013. my first autumn in portland, oregon. i wandered the street, falling in love with this beautiful city. “look at how gorgeous the colours of the leaves are!” i exclaimed with heart-shaped eyes to my friend. to which, she said matter-of-factly, “that just means they are going to die soon. it’s their final breath […]

new york city. a city full of life and energy. there is always something to do – festivals, concerts, musicals, exhibitions, bars, restaurants, parties, boutiques, cafes, parks, people-watch… the question is: which one to choose?! those with the fear of missing out are probably living in anxiety all the time. it can be overwhelming too, being constantly bombarded with sights, […]

when we only have love… this is the french song sang beautifully by a friend of the wedding couple, serenading everyone in the cathedral. a union in the land of l’amour, set in the backdrop of an old town hall, a lovely cathedral and le charming château, just like a fairy tale… except this is real. i’m glad to be part of this special […]
