Most Memorable Travel Experience
[Sydney, Australia 1999]
I was only 15 years old, deeply in love with Keanu Reeves and I bought lots of Matrix stuffs from there! AWESOME!!! Went there with my dad, but I walked and traveled to the city all by myself!

[Bangkok, Thailand 2006]
A shopping trip to Bangkok was really refreshing, me and my closest girlfriends couldn't stop smiling!

[Taipei, Taiwan 2008]
My first trip to Taipei with my best friend since high school! We spent our Christmas there, and heaven, we had a blast time over there!!! ^^

[Tokyo, Japan 2010]
My dream comes true when I decided to purchase that ticket and sat on that plane by myself and fly to Tokyo! I have not once regret travel to Japan by myself and meet up with strangers who became friends in this trip! I love that place so much that I swear to return to Japan again!

[United States December, 2010]
The very first time in the famous country, USA! I was ABSOLUTELY thrilled to be there! My very first time celebrating Christmas and New Year in USA and my very first time experience REAL SNOW in the US! It's awesome or what? And I was soooooooo amazed by that place, the culture and food!
an animal lover, a vegetarian, friendly, happy and positive person, a gamer. Love meeting people from local and other countries, because you'll learn a lot of stuff from people. :) I'm happily attached.
