Koh Chang: The Underrated Third Largest Island in Thailand


When I think about the best beaches I’ve been to, Koh Chang will be definitely not included on the list. Koh Chang may not have that picturesque almost desktop wallpaperish beach backdrop but the overall vibe of the island can be soothing, if you even get to the beach in the first place. We’ve stayed for a week on the third’s largest island in Thailand and we totally had a bipolar experience altogether; serenity and confusion.

Thailand: Serenity Resort at Koh Chang


Three days. We survived three days without the itch to go somewhere just for the sake of doing something. It was a retreat of some sort. To enjoy the art of doing nothing and yet, there’s a feeling of contentment. We were on the quiet side of Koh Chang in Thailand and we literally had serenity at Serenity Resort.

Gladly, there are people who dedicate their lives to offer their services and expertise regarding this matter. I applied for an Australian tourist visa last November and I got approved 22 hours after. Thanks to a licensed immigration consultant.

7


Seven-year itch. I googled it and learned that the term suggests a decline of happiness in a relationship when you reach seven years.

And my baby is now ready to face big school.

Thailand: The Friendly Smiles of Thai People in Trat Province


Everything became familiar as we scoured around the open-aired night market. It was déjà vu when I saw the cheap and yummy food on the hawker area and when I heard the distinct intonation of the locals. In this southeastern province of Thailand, the people are friendly and hospitable, in total contrast with the snobbish ones in other parts of the country.

Same Same Summer Trip 2017. Grade 12 teaching load. Approved visas. Winter. Autumn. India (finally). Beach. Snow. Naked trees. Surprises. Those four little words. Yes!

Tokyo Food Hunt: Cheap Eats in Japanese Standards


Japanese food isn't my favorite. I enjoy eating katsudon but I’m not a fan ramen. I love wasabi but not all types of sushi. It’s somewhat a selective kind of thing in terms of taste. But when it comes to aesthetic appeal, hands down, Japanese food is the best.
