My Passion...

Travelling has been my passion ever since I was a kid.. I absolutely love travelling but unfortunately I can't do it as much as I want because I have to work to pay for it....

As years go on, I'm getting braver and braver about travelling alone. I loved my first solo trip to Melbourne and have since got hooked to travelling alone. I do like travelling with friends but circumstances usually dictate that if I want to go anywhere at all it's got to be on my own. So that's what I do, and it's been fine.

Since I'm living in Singapore, I've planned to venture the world starting from Asia slowly out to Europe region.. So looking forward to more exciting trips in the future...

Now, with so much travelling, I have 2 years worth of trips not updated in VT! :p But please do be patience with me.....

What you'll find here...

I am hoping that my travel pages will not only be useful to other travellers, but will also be a way for me to share my photos and experiences with my friends and family..

You will find loads of information on beach resorts and exciting rides here... Cause I love the sea, sand and the sun and the spine-tingling, adrenaline charged, out-of-this-world excitement rides plus some self-pamparing pages...

I'll usually meet up with some VTers when I'm travelling so you'll find pictures of local VTers on my travel pages... If you are wary of attending a VT meet (large or smaller), please don't be. Just bite the bullet and sign up! They are huge fun, and everyone is incredibly friendly. You need have no fear of being left-out, and no fear of being hassled if you want some time and space alone.

Learning is never-ending....

I figured that riches and wealth can be taken away in a heart beat but no one can take away your experiences from you. I know it might sound cliche but travelling the world has expanded my heart and mind. It has made me more knowledgable, it has induced in me an addicition to see and learn more.

Travel has made me more appreciative of culture and others' views , has made me a more tolerant individual. But the most important thing I have learnt is not the places you go to but the people you meet along the way...

I will continue to wander this world, and hopefully continue to meet other wanderers and i will keep placing them in the bank of my memory.

Hopefully the day i am asked to leave this mortal coil i will be able to look back on my account and see how rich i always was.

My dream - To visit the 7 wonders of the world..

Have you ever tried to Google "The 7 Wonders of the World"?

After reading a few websites, apparently I couldn't come to any conclusion as to which one is the accurate one.. I guess after some Ancient Wonders were destroyed in the fire, eathquake, etc, people start to create new wonders to make up for the lost... Unknowingly, they have listed more than 7 in total and finally it was categorised as follows:

1. The Seven Wonders of the Ancient World
2. The Seven Wonders of the Medieval Mind
3. The Seven Natural Wonders of the World
4. The Seven Underwater Wonders of the World
5. The Seven Wonders of the Modern World
6. The Seven Forgotten Natural Wonders of the World
7. The Seven Forgotten Modern Wonders of the World
8. The Seven Forgotten Wonders of the Medeival Mind
9. The Forgotten Wonders
(Quoted from http://wonderclub.com/AllWorldWonders.html)

So, I have decided instead of visiting only 7 wonders, I'm gonna visit 1 place from each of the category and this is my list:

1. The Seven Wonders of the Ancient World
----> The Great Pyramid of Giza (The only ancient wonder still standing today)

2. The Seven Wonders of the Medieval Mind
----> The Great Wall of China (Planned to go in 2011)

3. The Seven Natural Wonders of the World
----> The Great Barrier Reef

4. The Seven Underwater Wonders of the World
----> Palau

5. The Seven Wonders of the Modern World
----> The Golden Gate Bridge

6. The Seven Forgotten Natural Wonders of the World
----> Mount Fuji (Done in Apr 2010)

7. The Seven Forgotten Modern Wonders of the World
----> Eiffel Tower

8. The Seven Forgotten Wonders of the Medeival Mind
----> Angkor Wat (Done in Feb 2008)

9. The Forgotten Wonders
----> The Sydney Opera House

I'm dying to try these...

I'm a rather adventurous gal and hope to try out new things in life and whatever life has it for me...

1. Scuba Diving
2. Wakeboarding
3. Sky Diving (Done in New Zealand - July 2011)
4. Skiing (Done in New Zealand - July 2011)
5. Paragliding (Done in New Zealand - July 2011)
6. Snowboarding (Done in New Zealand - July 2011)
7. Bungee Jumping (Done in New Zealand - July 2011)

What else is exciting for me??
