Quick Overview - Paris, Amsterdam and Istanbul

Image
Before I really start dissecting on my Paris - Amsterdam - Istanbul trip, I've decided to write an overview of each city that I could identify with. To start, I need to tell you that traveling in / to Europe is not cheap but NOT IMPOSSIBLE. I spent a total of MYR 8k inclusive of return flight, in between flights and trains, as well as accommodation and truckload of souvenirs which in my opinion is really-really cheap.

Give me a few weeks to update on my trip but for now, here's a quick run through.

Paris

While we were finalising our trip, Paris came last to mind and we were deciding between Brussels (simply because we heard really nice things about the city, it was a cross over between Netherlands and France) and London (because it's London) as well as Paris (because it's the most famous city in the world). After much consideration, we finally imagined ourselves more strolling around Champs Elysees towards the Arch de Triomphe. Eventhough we were heading to Europe (fo…

Quick Updates

It's that round of updates again.

I'll start off with FMFA. I was meant to go to FMFA for the weekend, but the event got cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances. So we skidded to an ice cream parlour to catch up over the remaining time I had left over there.

And then there's Chris' farewell.

I think it's been 3 years since we've met, and we always seem to have great discussion discussing about earth, the heaven and everything in between. And also 3 years since #yolo. Dude, we will always be here. I don't know about the rest, but I'm practically planted here in KK. P…

#marchmorefun GUINNESS St Patrick's 2014 Celebration in KK!

Thank God for a little get together at the ‘March More Fun’ month after all the craziness the month has witnessed.

For those of you who are wondering what Saint Patrick's Day is allllll about, this is a holiday celebrated annually on the 17th March in remembrance on the life of the famous patron saint of Ireland, Saint Patrick. From the early golden years, the annual activities for this celebration particularly involves public parades and festivals, céilithe, and the wearing of green attire or shamrock, not to forget the tradition - beer chugs.
I still remember two years back when I walked pass a bar for a drink date with my collegemates. As I walked by, I was attracted by these festive decorationas and there were plenty of green clover around and the attendants were all dressed up fancy in their green uniforms! Back then, the only thing I knew was that they were celebrating St.Patrick’s Day. I pulled my friends over and insisted to have our drinks there instead of our usual hangou…
