Hot Air Balloon ride at Nevsihir Cappodocia, Turkey
So I just got back from Turkey few days ago and I am already missing those days when I'm there. Mainly because I love traveling so much that I just miss the feeling of it now. But of course I must say that it is definitely a spectacular trip I had, it was more than I expected, beautiful country and places with interesting history. A very different culture I would say, well at least comparing to the other places that I'd been to before Turkey. Friend asked me if I feel heartbroken for the amount of money I spent on this trip and I answered 'No' immediately because it is worth of every single cent that I'd earn for this. Also because traveling has been my dream ever since young, I guess not one can understand how much I love it, to see the world, learning different culture, knowing a different side of the history that I would willing to pay all my hard earn money just to travel around.
Well actually I still have unfinished assignments waiting for me to be done as this is my final year for the course, hopefully by the time I finish it and when I'm free I will be able to update my trip in Turkey.
As for now, this picture will do.
Continent cruising from Europe to Asia side of Turkey back and forth.
So tonight's gonna be my last night here in Turkey and time to say güle güle to this beautiful country. Yeah again just like my previous post I'm gonna say the same thing, that I haven't been updating my blog for really long time but this time right now at this moment I just feel like it's a must to blog about this one because I'm just too happy enjoying this awesome hotel in Istanbul that I just have to leave this part of memory here by having this place checked-in and marked in my blog post. I'm weird like that. Well I might update this post again for the pictures of the hotel room as for now I'm too sleepy and I need a good rest for the long flight tomorrow so till then.
Dragged myself up at 5am just to go see sunrise from the second Penang bridge yesterday. If it wasn't the classmates that's being so insisting, I don't think I'll even thought of going there for pictures and especially having to wake up as early as 5 in the morning! Although it's kinda disappointing that we didn't get to have a good view of the sunrise because of the haze, buuuttt I still think it's worth it. You don't get to take picture on a Penang bridge everyday having NO cars at all to pass by the bridge! Nothing special, yeah just a picture, but hey it just somehow make you feels good about it.
Sorry for the bad quality of the pictures taken.
iPhone 4's camera doesn't do it's justice to the beautiful view.
If you ask me, I personally think the night view is so much nicer.
Time passes so fast I can't believe it's the last day for Chinese New Year already, cause I'm still on new year mood. I think I enjoyed this year's new year, somehow different from the previous years. Of course I'm happy to receive Ang Pao (who doesn't right?) but that's not the main reason to it, there were just a few things that I'm really happy with. Wonder what this year of horse brings me, looking forward to it but unfortunately I got older by another year ahh that's life for you. Anyways...
I suddenly just have this urge in me to update my blog so
I'm sure many of you are familiar with the word Kpop or even, you could be one of them Kpop fans reading this right now. Well I have a lot of friends around me (not all but yeah, a lot of them) that are also Kpop fans and some are really huge fans. Yeah but that does not make me a fan myself, I may love the country Korea, the people there (visited Korea once and really nice people there), the places there and sometimes my friends would tell me stuff about them Kpop singers, talk about how funny some Korean talk-shows were or one of my cousins would ask me to watch some Korean dramas that she think its really nice. I would watch them or listen to their songs but nope, still not a fan and I was never a Kpop fan. No offence to you fans out there, I'm not here to insult or anything just saying I'm not a fan and my point of this blogpost is about me going to Kpop dance workshop during my last weekend.
I may like to dance but usually I'm not that active when it comes to Kpop (it's just not my kinda thing) but this time I would give it a try only because I heard that Double-D, the instructor that came all the way from Korea seems to be more to hip hop dances and since I'd never been to any Kpop classes before so I thought to myself why not give it a try, no harm trying new things plus this would be a new experience for me.
Turned out, the workshop from Double-D was not bad, he teaches us the choreography of the song Growl by the group EXO. But he said he won't be teaching the exact choreography from them, instead he added a lil' of his own style to it. And just now, I went on to Youtube to look up for the Growl MV by EXO, it was indeed slightly different from what I'd seen Double-D taught us, different in the sense of style. In my opinion, I think Double-D dances more to hip hop style, he grooves more and bounces more with his body when he dance. I'm not saying who's right or wrong, just saying from what I saw, well of course each has their own nice and swag in both different style of dancing, sometimes it's just the way you see it and whether to your own liking or not.
To dancers out there: Sorry if I said anything offensive. No, I'm not a professional dancer or whatsoever myself to teach about dances, I'm only saying what I thought.
I must say I learnt something from this workshop. Something new to me at least. Thanks for the workshop!

Messy hair; should have wear my cap, didn't
expected this strong wind coming.
Yeah really strong wind, but that doesn't changes the
hot weather that day, was sweating like mad at the end of
Every year I would look forward to these days, not only because we kids or those unmarried ones get to receive Ang Pao (red packets) but also because it means reunion for me and my family..and together with other relatives! Not just that, I also love how lively Chinese New Year (CNY) could bring to the atmosphere during the weeks-before-CNY. But sadly, it doesn't feel as lively as before anymore, seems to me that it got worst year by year even people around me feel the same too. So to bring up the CNY mood to myself, another thing I would very much look forward to is, to watch the Chinese New Year Countdown Live show by TVB (Hong Kong) but this year they did it very differently, they were doing the live show with some other countries like Korea and Singapore and for the first time I felt disappointed for a show that I looked forward to, they no longer have any funny drama plays on stage, artists were singing some unrelated CNY songs.. well I just don't feel the Chinese New Year mood from there anymore. I just hope they could bring up with something better than this for next year's! (always have high hopes on TVB, because I know they're good)... So to sum up my CNY holiday, well it was just alright, didn't had a very good reunion with the relatives and also couldn't enjoy my holidays properly. But I hope all of you have a great one and again...
Ahh it's a new year again, and there goes our "2012, the year of the end of the world"! Twenty twelve has gone by us so fast sigh..no, in fact I realize that every year had gone by us so fast that I felt, 24 hours a day is just not enough and at times I just feel that I couldn't catch up with Mr. Time, with such fast pace. But of course, life goes on.
Twenty twelve was just alright to me, learnt a lot, seen.. well I would say a lot too. Still, I think that twenty eleven was the best year I ever had and that has already became the past. So let's see what do we have for this year. Hope it got better! And once again,
