2017 一個人的新加坡跨年日記



一個人旅行,真的會上癮。



朋友說:一個人旅行不寂寞嗎?
我的答案還是一樣:跟自己相處會寂寞嗎?


更何況旅程中會遇到形形色色的人,總和朋友去旅行的感覺那麼的不一樣。
聆聽和分享彼此曾經擁有的際遇,從不認識到可以打成一片的過程,有那麼的寶貴。
當然並不排斥和朋友一起結伴去旅行,只是偶爾得到可以認識新朋友的機會,好像也蠻不錯的。


2016年12月29日,展開第二次的一個人旅行。
當初單純的為了清年假而拿了一星期的假期。原本只打算留在家裡好好休息的我,結果還是耐不住想往外跑的慾望而決定一個人到新加坡跨年。很巧的,在背包客棧得知來之台灣的Lin也會到新加坡跨年,大家就約好一起去玩了。 也因為Lin而認識了來自馬來西亞的Nicholas和台灣的Helen。

Nicholas說,我們兩個馬來西亞人竟然透過一個台灣人而認識,緣分這東西很奇妙吧。


【住宿】
這次的住宿選擇了靠近克拉克碼頭(Clarke Quay)的闊德室 Quarters Hostel。由於它位於Clarke Quay站(紫線)和Raffles Place站(綠線)之間,所以交通是非常方便。我入住的是女生四人宿舍,一個床位3晚共付了馬幣278.21,還包括了簡單的早餐,感覺上還蠻值得一推的!





第一天的晚餐就跟Lin和Nicholas約好了去吃Lorong Chuan站附近的Chomp Chomp美食中心。在那裡的幾乎看不見遊客的身影,瀰漫著當地濃厚的風情。



吃飽了之後當然先到新加坡的地標:魚尾獅公園Merlion Park打卡。








從魚尾獅公園走到Marina Bay Sands飯店只需要10分鐘。到7-eleven買好啤酒,選了個好位子,Marina Bay Sands前面的燈光秀就開始了。想說的是,除了燈光秀令人覺得驚艷之外,那裡的氣氛也讓人覺得很舒服。這也跟和誰一起看有關係吧?




2016/12/30 (星期五)

本來想說自己一個人就不打算去環球影城 Universal Studio 了。既然剛好找到了旅遊同伴,當然就抱著不去白不去的心態,砸了整兩百馬幣,進去玩了半天。

吸取背包客棧論壇裡的建議,我們先到Chinatown的天宇旅行社買好票才到聖淘沙。票價果然有差,在天宇旅社所購的一張影城門票才60新幣,如果現場購票的話則需要付74新幣,相差14新幣!

買好票之後,趁時間還早,我們就到 Chinatown 附近的景點看看。當中包括了 Jamae Mosque詹美回教堂, Sri Mariamman 馬里安興都廟和佛牙寺 Buddha Tooth Relic Temple and Musuem。



這還是第一次進印度廟呢


從chinatown只需要乘搭捷運到 Vivocity (Harbour Front)便可以乘搭接駁車(比較小型的捷運)到聖淘沙。只需要在第一站下站就可以進到環球影城啦。

來到影城當然要拍一張經典遊客照

聖誕節剛過,所以還有十分的聖誕氣氛





在環球影城裡除了排隊也應該只有排隊(囧///)。不過看了4D電影,玩了一些遊戲設施和我從來不敢玩的雲霄飛車,算值回票價了對吧?


所謂的童話並不是謊言。而是憧憬,讓人一次又一次相信世界仍然會有美好的事情發生。


和Lin道別了以後,我便獨自去到克拉克碼頭逛逛。一個人看著結伴成群的人們,不禁有一種惆悵的感覺湧上心頭。不過,很快的就因為自己一個人自由自在而感到慶幸。

下次來挑戰這個好了,誰要舉手?




一個人,安靜的,看夜景,蠻不錯的。



2016/12/31 (星期六)

這一天故意安排了一些比較輕鬆的行程,只為了節省體力以便可以支撐到午夜12點跨年(笑)。

在旅舍簡單的吃過早餐後,便出發到小印度 Little India。老實說,雖然馬來西亞有不少的印度小街,可是這還是我第一次逛印度市場,感覺十分新鮮。

穿梭在一條又一條的小巷,在不同角落發現不一樣的驚喜。空氣中瀰漫著強烈的印度香料味道,有一種身置在印度的錯覺。





帶著Lin到竹腳中心吃午餐,看著他吃印度餐後而臉有難色,不禁笑了出來。

小印度最有名的熟食中心


印度料理:Nasi Briyani


哈之巷 Haji Lane阿拉伯街 Arab Street 都是我一直和想去的地方。也許美麗的街道對我來說有一種說不出的吸引力吧?

玲瑯滿目的燈飾,散發著中東的神秘氣息


不小心還拍到購物狂上身的林先生






晚餐時間跟Lin,Nicholas和Helen約好在Vivocity見面,然後便到 No Signboard 海鮮餐館享用晚餐。雖然嘴裡說剛動完手術不能吃海鮮,可是美食當前,誰能抵擋這誘惑啊?感謝老闆Nicholas大方請客,不過要怎麼答謝你呢?

麥片蝦/ 上湯芫菜/ 肉碎豆腐/ 辣椒螃蟹 😋


進入倒數之前,大家圍在一起喝著酒,聊著彼此,很喜歡這種感覺。人生短短幾十年,可以那樣輕鬆的聊聊天,喝喝酒就是一件很幸福的事。



進行倒數前的一小時,大家都開始聚到Marina Bay 一區找好位子,準備迎接2017的到來。


當兩個女生聚在一起,當然就要自拍一下咯 ^^




重要時刻來臨,當主持人高喊 3,2,1 之後,絢麗的煙火綻放在夜空裡,當時情緒真的很激昂,有一種瞬間重新活過來了的感覺! HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!


video

很難忘,那一群陪我度過2016年最後幾秒鐘的人。也許以後可能不會再見,也許他們只是生命裡的過客,不過曾經擁有一段美好的回憶,都是值得紀念的。

希望大家有個美好的2017年!



2017/1/1 (星期日)

旅程的最後一天睡到自然醒。沒有特別想去的地方,就到新加坡最熱鬧的購物天堂 Orchard Road 走走。不過由於馬幣的貶值,搞得我實在是沒有購物的慾望。😡


走累了,便回到 Victoria Theatre 前的草坪上坐著,聽著附近教堂傳來的鐘聲,度過一個悠閒的下午。




直到天空下起雨來,才願意離開。

大家不約而同的跑到博物館前避雨。聽著雨滴打落在磚瓦的聲音,看著孩童在雨中嬉戲玩樂的模樣,突然對這個地方有了留念。

雨停後,也是該啟程回國了。那4天3夜的旅程,雖然很短暫,卻讓人感到依依不捨。不捨的,除了對這個國家,主要的還是那幾個在旅途中認識的人吧。


期待,下一次的出走。



·新的一年,新的希望 :)

[BEAUTY] What's in My Makeup Pouch ღ


Hello lovelies! 반갑습니다 ❤

Wanted to write on this topic since long time ago, yet procrastination was the best reason to explain the delay.  Until a few weeks ago, I received my Althea box from Korea, I can't wait to introduce those few new members of my makeup pouch.


OVERVIEW
Makeup pouch was bought from Insadong, Seoul.
It came with different shapes and sizes.  The colorful design and the pendant attracted me the most.
 


 FACE
01: Laneige Pore Control BB Cushion (no. 13N) [NEW]
02: Innisfree Long Wear Cushion (no. 13)
03: Innisfree No Sebum Mineral Powder [NEW]
04: Innisfree Cushion Base
 
Innisfree Long Wear Cushion had been serving me really good especially in combining with the cushion base.  Whereas the Laneige BB cushion and Innisfree No Sebum mineral powder are my new hauls from Althea.  I'll do a review once I had tried 'em up! 


EYE
01: Kate Designing Eye Brow N
02: Banila co. Fox Tail Mascara
03: Etude House Drawing Show Brush Liner
04: Etude House Play 101 Pencil (no. 48)
05: Etude House Play 101 Pencil (no. 22)
06: Etude House Play 101 Pencil (no. 06)
Kate Designing Eye Brow kit is a rare non-korean product in my makeup pouch.  It is a 3-colored palette that gives a really ash brown color and natural looking brows.  Fyi, I use it for nose shadow as well!
Banila co. Fox Tail mascara was bought accidentally at Myeongdong for the purpose of adding the total bill up to 30,000won so that I can get tax refund. Lol.  Surprisingly, the quality isn't bad. 
Etude House brush liner is my another must-have item.  It is so long lasting and the price is so affordable. 
Not to forget mentioning my Etude House Play 101 pencils.  They can used as eye liner, eye shadows, contouring, lip pencil or any other functions you may think of.  The colors are really vibrant and easy to use.


LIP + MAKEUP REMOVER
01: Banila co. Clean It Zero makeup remover
02: Mentholatum Lipice tinted lip balm (Baby pink)
03: Etude House Color In Liquid Lips (PK004)
That small Banila co. Clean It Zero is a free gift from purchasing a tub of the original size.  This series of cleansing balm come with 4 choices: original (as shown in photo), purity, resveratrol and radiance.  The cleansing power is superb and fast.  Personally I like the Purity (for sensitive skin) more because it is much less greasy. 
For lips, well I seldom change my lips color.  Lol.  Thus, I will only carry this pair of lip balm and lip gloss wherever I go.  Time to shop for more? Teehee. 


I think that's all about what's in my makeup pouch.  Hope you enjoy reading!
Do share with me the contents of your makeup pouch too :)

Till then, see you! 

 Happy 빼빼로데이 (pepero day)!

re·fined

안녕하세요!

Hello, I'm back with this new blog interface.  
This blog was closed for a few days to get some 'renovation' done.  
Get a bit bored with the previous blog design and hope for some changes.
Blog and life 

Thus, I had removed some unwanted gadgets and inserted some new elements into this blog.
Hope it looks more clean and refined to you. 

What's new?

  • New blog banner.  It was a photo taken during my solo trip to Korea, symbolizing freedom and courage.
  • Biography. An answer for myself in the journey of searching true self. 
  • New blog name. No more talking crap, I'm talking about life. 
  • New profile picture.  Older face, hope getting wiser. 

Hoping a new blog design will give me more motivation to blog.

"Making a big change in life is pretty scary
but 
regret is even scarier"

Any comments and suggestions are welcomed at the comment box below.
Till then, see you!

[Travel] Malacca 2D1N



The desire of going to travel is never ending.  I suppose it is a symbol of getting exhausted or bored with current working life?  When you couldn't do anything to make any changes, a short escape is considered as quite a relief.  What a life.

Malacca remains as my top favorite travel destination, even though I had made couples of visit to this beautiful town before.  Just two-hour drive from KL, you'll be able to recharge yourself well over a weekend with splendid view of various places and of course - with tonnes of delicious food.

This time I made a short 2D1N trip to Malacca with my sisters and I should name is as a FOOD trip.

那一趟『柬』式之旅




很多故事都是以『在很久很久以前』為開頭。
那麼,在很久很久以後,每當想起這趟旅程時,
又是否會記得當初的悸動?

老實說起初對柬埔寨的印象就只局限於『世界文化遺產』『貧窮落後國家』
對其背後的歷史真的沒理解多少(我就是那個上歷史課就呼呼大睡的人)。
去了一趟柬埔寨之旅後,才發現柬埔寨有美麗的另一面。

現實生活也不就是這樣嗎?
往往放慢腳步,轉換心態,世界原來很美好。

3月10日,四個女人拖著行李,展開那奇妙的旅程。
