Which Choice Will You Choose?

When I think about the roads I’m about to embark on, the opportunities that will be knocking on my door, the different parts of the world I will get to explore…this life is truly a gift from God. Am I ready?

My (‘very amateurly-taken’) 2010 Hong Kong Pictures

My (‘very amateurly-taken’) 2010 Hong Kong Pictures

Hi, as I’m still busy collating my 3rd and last, Hong kong Trilogy post, here’s another photo diary – this time in Hong Kong 2010! I was 13 at that time, and travelled with 3/5 of my family (my parents and I).

I can’t remember much either, since it was like 7 years ago but we stayed in Holiday Inn – located in Tsim Sha Tsui. The hotel has an amazing location as well, because just right outside the hotel is already the shopping district where you have all the branded stuff like Miu Miu, Chanel etc, fashion clothing stuff like H&M, Zara, and beauty stores like Sasa. So convenient.

And I remembered going to see the Symphony of Lights at Victoria Habour, as well as the Peak which is accessible from the MTR station called “Central” (on the blue line). Ok if you are wondering…

Um… why does Vanessa seem to remember more about her 2010 Hong Kong trip than her 2009 Europe one?

Well, I feel that I know my way around Hong Kong way more because I literally visited Hong Kong like 2 months ago. (I went Hong Kong in 2010 which is this photo diary, and in 2017) And since I’m 20 now, the roads and directory in general seem to make more sense to me. When I was 13, I didn’t really pay much attention to my surroundings and blindly followed my parents wherever they went. I visited the same places in Hong Kong, (from when I went previously in 2010) and realised where it was located, how to actually get there etc. I guess when you’re almost nearing adulthood versus a newly-turned teenager… things are different. Everything starts to make sense. Anyway, I should stop talking now since this is supposed to be a ‘photo-diary’ post. Enjoy the pictures and stay tuned for my last post of the Hong Kong Trilogy series!

Hong Kong is really such a dream, I miss it and will want to go back there again hopefully this september, or next year!

With love,

My (very ‘amateur-ly’ taken) 2009 Europe Pictures: Switzerland and Paris

My (very ‘amateur-ly’ taken) 2009 Europe Pictures: Switzerland and Paris

Hi everyone, I just want to say that I’m terribly sorry that I can’t really give you much details of Switzerland and Paris since it’s been 8 years since I’ve last stepped into these places so for now, I am just going to post a slide of pictures for you guys to enjoy. Perhaps next time when I go back there again, I’ll do a detailed travel review because right now I only remember 5-10% of my travel and I don’t think it’s fair for me to write a travel review on something I don’t know much about or something I can’t quite remember well.

All of my pictures were shot by a Canon Digital IXUS 110 15, yes it is such an ancient device! It has a megapixel of 12.2. I also have to apologise that the pictures aren’t the most well-taken. Back in 2009, taking pictures weren’t really an ‘in’ thing. And I was like 12… so… you get my drift!

Switzerland Pictures

Some of the notable places I remember: Matterhorn Zermatt, Bern Switzerland and Interlacken! We took a plane (yes I took Singapore Airlines) to Zurich, but we had to take a train to Interlacken and Zermatt!

Paris

I honestly can’t remember much about Paris, other than Champ Elysees and some museums… but it was quite a beautiful place, but to be super frank, it’s not somewhere I would personally want to live in. Food was quite a problem too, because I don’t really favour french food. Serving was small, and the price was so expensive! There aren’t many photographs because I reckon my family and I spent about 2 to 3 days in Paris, before flying back to Singapore.

I hope these pictures entertained you guys a little! This was really all I had taken in 2009. I feel like telling my 12 year old self, to snap more pictures! But then again who knew I would even start a travel blog? In the meantime, stay tuned for my last post as part of the Hong Kong Trilogy.

With Love always,

Vanessa
