“Blogger Recognition Award” is a great achievement for me, also it is a promise.

I actually received this unexpected award nomination from Wanderlustplusone by Venassa few months ago, unfortunately, I was stressed with the work at the time so that I couldn’t finish this post.

But but but… the time, I was very glad and excited to know that there’s someone on the other side of the world reading my story, in addition to giving me more confidence to work on it.

Wanderlustplusone is an awesome blog where has thousands and thousands of great photos, tips and adventures take you to discover different parts of the world. Yes, her blog is like a cruise boat. Also, the site suits someone who is planning to travel with children.

On the other hand, I would also thanks her all the likes and regular visit to my site, although I understand I’ve lately been posing a lot of nursing boring stories which may be a bit different topic for her field.


The rules for accepting this award are as follows:

  1. Give thanks to the person who had nominated you and a link to their blog.
  2. Write a post to show your award.
  3. Briefly tell how you started blogging.
  4. Give two pieces of advice to new bloggers.
  5. Nominate 15 other bloggers for this award.
  6. Comment on the nominated blogs and let them know you have nominated them and give a link to the post you have created.


How did I start blogging:

It used to be very popular to blog around back to my high school time, but I stopped it while the popularity faded. Just before my first solo trip in Europe, I found there is so much useful information online, lots of people sharing their experiences and tips with precious photos. That really inspires me, as I believe blogging can not only be a part of my memories but also can benefit others.

Nowadays, I am still trying to make my posts more informative and helpful to others, I realized my blog is, however, developing from my travel experience to more related to the professional field. If you take notice, it is still all about my life and sharing tips based on my personal experience.

It does always take time to make a proper post. Will I keep blogging? Yes, I will. I like to get more feedback and sharing the knowledge with others from all over the world.


 Two pieces of advice for new bloggers:

  1. This is your blog where you record everything that you would like to share with others, it can definitely be positive and negative. Don’t get struggling with how many views you have and how cool it should look like and etc. Just be yourself! The people who are in the same rhythm always understand you.
  2. Writing a blog consistently is a good way to train oneself’s persistence.

Long Distance Relationships

While Jess probably doesn’t know I’m blogging about this, I thought I might just take the time to remind those who are fortunate enough to meet other halves but unfortunate enough to be in different countries.

Key things to remember:

  • Be strong for each other
  • Show each other love and care
  • Share your everyday lives with each other
  • Build and create goals together; both long term and short term
  • Respect each other’s time
  • Do doing together, spend time with one another
  • Compromise and sacrifice your time and effort for each other
  • Communicate, Communicate, Communicate
  • Most importantly trust each other

Your relationship is only what you make of it. Good things take time and while it may seem hard at times, the end goal will be what keep you together. In the end, they are worth it.

I’ll expand in more detail on what me and Jess do together 🙂

World Time Attack..What?

This post is purely for those who like cars… and those who love cars.. and also those who are interested in cars. World Time Attack Challenge (WTAC) or for short “World Time Attack” is an event where drivers from all around the world come to Sydney’s Motorsports capital which is Eastern Creek Raceway for one reason – get the fastest lap around the track.

How to grab your roommate’s cat when she’s not at home.

Haha, I know it sounds funny with this topic, but you know people always like to take off their polite-like mask when your roommate is at work. XD



I had an amazing roommate before who has great sense of humours, polite, creative, a real chef and HAS A CAT. Her cat named Ginger, like what she coloured.

Ginger isn’t as friendly as dogs, however she is like any animals including humans that can not resist to yummy food. lol Hence, that was the only way I could be her best friend when Chelsea, my roommate, wasn’t home.


lol Look at her unhappy face


Another tips for playing with her is that things with feather. She isn’t a super fan for the feather gadget, but it sometimes work. I feel like I enjoy the game than Ginger does in some occasion. lol



Last one, being cold to her.

Ginger just like every Gemini girl, eg. Jess,  the more passionate you are, the less attention you will get from her.

I sometimes like alright I won’t bother you today and locked my door, then she realised how boring she would be without me. So she started to scratched my door, finally jumped to my bed and mewing to me.


As she knows she got me, the she put her cold face to me again. lol I hate her sometimes….2014-09-01_19-18-48_818437_orglogo


Finally, I would say her top lover is always Chelsea, whenever she heard the door opened, she ran to her immediately.


But thanks to Chelsea for letting me had a nice exp with cat and trained her so well as not to poo everywhere in the house and still be a friend of mine. 😀


10 Things must do in Taiwan

10 Things must do like a real Taiwanese


  1. Ride on a scooterThere are 2.3b ppl in Twnes population and 1.2b scooters in Taiwan. Can you imagine how important scooter is for us?


2.Night market

I visit the night market in Syd, seems like they are trying to copy everything from here to the china town in Syd. Although they look the same, there is one thing they can’t steal that’s called “traditional flavor”.

3. Shrimping

As it’s a crowed island, we shrimp in the dark greenish water in a big sink . Will update a photo soon.

4. Wind sliding






5.Make wishes on your own lantern

I now can confidentially say yes, my dream came true!!! I passed my English exam last year eventually. 😀



6. Riding ubike

I think ubike is a really good idea for the public based on economic and healthy benefit.

7. Pipes garbing

All pipes that you can garb in those little box will be your lunch, they cook for you. James loves it so much.


8. Play go kart without helmet

I know it sounds dangerous but yes, that’s right! We don’t wear helmet here. No one can ruin your hairstyle.

not sure if you notice we didn’t wear shoes lol

9.Being a foodie

We have thousands and thousands new flavor everywhere. You can start eating since you wake up in the morning. One of the best thing in TW is you will never get hungry. Trust me! Lots of shops and restaurants open 247!

10. Visit karaoke

You can be a superstar here. Compare to the karaoke in Sydney, I have much more fun in TW. The system for ordering songs are much organised and you rarely not  be able to find your songs.

oh man, just realised we were so young….

Share|4 airlines reviews and cheap flight tickets tips

Well today let me talk about my cheap fly experience.

mm, I’ve been buying the flight tickets by myself for around 10 ish years now.


fb4e8-easter_icons-20-128Taiwanese website- backpacker [ link]

well, i used to use Taiwanese website- backpacker, but its in chinese. [ link]

This one is pretty good, it actually gives you a table of every airline and you can compare the price easily.

I used to buy the ticket to china and it only took me around  20K NTD

Rmb there was an other experience that i only spent 27-28K NTD from TW to SYD and transferred in SHA.

You also can choose have a few days to stay maximum 10 days in SHA if you want. in addition, all service is all included.


fb4e8-easter_icons-20-128Scoot [link]

However, these a few years, “scoot” has a flight stop in Taiwan, and it actually have heaps place that you are able to go.

Due to its cheap cost, you have to pay extra money if you need more service including meals, entertainment, baggage service and etc.

But it suits me well coz i normally don’t eat much, and a tricky way i did was buying food from 7-11( PS everything is cheaper in convenience store compare to the shop in the airport in TW)

I usually got two sandwich and brought my own bottle to fill in water in the lobby.

[Note: you are not allowed to bring any LIQUID over 100 ml each with you]

That’s why I brought an empty bottle only, but soiled food its okay.

[Note: Australia doesn’t allow you to bring any food with meat and other heaps stuffs, aus policy is always strict. you’d better check yourself before you leave, but u still can eat it during ur journey]

The other reason I like scoot is I LOVE Singapore, I always enjoying using leg massager for FREE during my tiring fly. its the best airport I’ve been so far.


You only need to purchase your ticket step by step and get your credit card ready then I am sure you can be the best backpacker now. The earlier you buy a ticket, the cheaper price you can get.


well, let’s talk about the tickets from aus to tw.

fb4e8-easter_icons-20-128China eastern airline

Remember last time I helped my bf buy a ticket, surprisingly i found china eastern airline is cheaper than scoot, another benefit of it is that also includes all service ( luggage with 25 kgs) but its with like 4-6 hours for transferring.

However, James commends that was terrible fly experience ever, lol he said the food was crap and there has nothing.

fb4e8-easter_icons-20-128Philippine airline

When talking about the worst fly experience for me, it was with Philippine airline, that one was the scariest one coz of the HIGH SECURITY check. They even checked my shoes through X-ray machine, and my whole body was checked by the lady. they opened my hand bags even there are a few security dogs came.

fb4e8-easter_icons-20-128Malaysia airline

I took Malaysian airline, mm its not bad, just need to wait for 8-9 hours to transport.If u don’t mind, it could be considered.

Above are my fly price, hope it can be useful to u. 🙂
