Geesh! Time does fly, right? It's hard to believe that it's another new year now.
Apart from travelling, 2013 was a year of heartache for me. I spent many days in tears and feeling sad at the loss of my furry friends, not only one but six of them within one year. Lucky, my 12 years old Persian cat and Baby, a 3 months old puppy died due to some kind of virus. I was so devastated when the vet told me that euthanasia is the only way for Baby, so he wouldn't feel the pain anymore. Bob Marley, the 2 months old puppy died after being hit by neighbour's car. Bobi and Mocca were kidnapped while Buzee was poisoned by some irresponsible people. Perhaps some of you are wondering, why would I make such a big fuss over these furry fellas? Because to me, they were not only pets in my house.....they were my best friends and were part of my family. That's why I'm so brokenhearted :(

January - Malaysia
After spending the Christmas in Singapore, I decided to stay in Johor Bahru and Melaka for couple days after the new year. I didn't do many sightseeing while I was there though. Just lazying in the hotel or hunting for delicious local food.
February - Singapore & Japan
Flied back to Singapore and stayed for some days before headed to Hokkaido. I've been to Japan for couple times before but it was my first time to Hokkaido. The trip was awesome nevertheless and I love love love all the food in that island. I just can't wait to visit it again soon!
August- Italy, Slovenia, Croatia, Montenegro, Bosnia & Herzegovina and Singapore
My Balkan trip would have been perfect if only the weather was not too hot. It was probably one of the highest temperature I've ever experienced. Unbearable! But I must say that the places I visited were just breathtakingly beautiful.
|Venezia - Italy|
|Lake Bled - Slovenia|
|Dubrovnik - Croatia|
|Budva - Montenegro|
|Mostar - Bosnia & Herzegovina|
November - Malaysia
It was a short getaway for attending an awesome event, AWE 2013. While Kuala Lumpur is not my favourite city, I did have a great time there. Specially because I met many amazing women in the event who inspired me. I'm looking forward for AWE 2014!
December - Taiwan
I've been spending almost 2 weeks here in Taiwan for a Christmas holiday with my family. We're road tripping from Taipei - Hualien - Cinjing Farm - Sun Moon Lake to Taichung and will be flying home on 4 January. Basically it's a 'eat till you drop' trip.
How was the year 2013 for you?
