New Macbook and why no update lately!

I finally got a macbook. I love it. It seems to be some much more fun to use compared to my HP laptop. Thanks to the hubby for getting this for me!

So here is the reason for my absence from youtube and blogging. Hubby and I are moving to Sweden end April. He got a job at a University there. I am happy that my hubby got a good job and that we will be closer to his family. He has spent 3 good years in Singapore. We met, got married and now we are going to move to his home country. How cool is that?

Somehow even though it sounds cool, I am still not feeling all that happy. It's mixed feelings for me as I have never spent much time out of Singapore other then travels for leisure and work. I have no idea how I am going to handle the weather and seasons as I am used to only two seasons, rainy and sunny seasons.

The other thing that is bothering me much is the language. How am I going to understand Swedish. Everyone will start telling me that I have to learn Swedish. I am going to be like ' Why should I learn Swedish, can't I speak English?' Swedish can be a very difficult language to learn and if I do not have love for a language why put in so much effort to learn? I am not being rude here. Just pouring out my worsts fears.

The thought that I have to leave my Singaporean life, family and friends gives me a heart ache. I know my family understands. I am going to miss them very much. I will miss my best friend very much. It's going to be tough when you are in a foreign country starting all over again.

Thank God for a good hubby, he promised to give me the moral support I will need for this transition. I know he will as he has always kept his word no matter what.

Now we are looking for a place to stay in Sweden and it is not going all that well as we are here in Singapore. Luckily, my In laws are helping with the search for an apartment. I hope we know where we will stay soon.

So as you can see, there is a lot going on in my life now. We are trying to handle one thing at a time so as to not get overwhelmed by the whole moving process. I will come back with videos, reviews and blog posts, it's just that I have so much on my hands now that needs more attention.

I hope you will still be here when I am back. Thanks for coming by to read my post.

Love Love!

Honeymoon at Bali! (Part 2)

Hi and I am back. I am not too well after the trip. Have been feeling feverish. I guess it's because of too much sun exposure which causes dehydration. I have to drink more water and tell myself that I will be fine and the weekend is just around the corner.

Anyway, here are more details about the honeymoon trip at bali. I am sure you guys want to see more of what I saw and experienced.

After the massage and spa treatment the night before, I was completely rejuvenated and fresh. Have a wonderful breakfast. The staff of the lounge were excellent with service. 

Have to do some shopping when your on a holiday right? Here we are at sunset road in nusa dua, this is a handicraft market. Items are all fixed price so there was no need to waste time bargaining. They were reasonable prices too.



They sell beautiful paintwork, handicrafts, aromatherapy oils, clothes and many more.


Had to stop by a bead shop. Sorry, I did not take pictures inside the shop because I was super excited and wanted to grab everything i saw. :)


After an eventful day, a glass of mojito completed our day. I think this was the best mojito I have ever tried in Asia.


Everything has to come to an end, it was our last day of our honeymoon. Flight was at 1340hrs. Had a nice long breakfast and I was sad that we had to leave. You can tell from the picture!

Overall, Bali is a amazing place to visit. It's known for it's beautiful nature and history. I would definitely visit this island again even though the airport service and procedure sucks. If you are a foreigner, be prepared to pay USD 25 for entry and USD19 for airport service tax. Also, you have to be very very careful with taxi services, they tend to over charge and tout. We were smart, we took the taxis with meter only. We learnt the hard way after our last visit in 2007. Regardless some negative experiences, this trip was worth the time and money spent. After all, it was our Honeymoon!

That's all folks. Have a wonderful day and stay tuned for more posts from me.

Honeymoon at Bali!

Finally, hubby and I have sealed the deal of marriage. After 1 and a half years of marriage, we managed to go for our honeymoon. Both of us have been very busy with work and our lives that we never had the time to go on a honeymoon.

We spent 4 nights & 5 days at Conrad Bali. We were upgraded to a honeymoon lagoon suite and had exclusive club lounge privileges. It was awesome. Here are some pictures of the hotel and the room.

Lovely bed!

We were so excited that we could not wait to hit the beach and the pool. Here are some pictures.

The pool is just outside the suite! Super cool!

Darling hubby and me!

On valentine's day, we went for a dinner watching the sunset. Unfortunately, it was raining so there was so sunset. After dinner, we went for a spa treatment, massage and body scrub.

Raining!

The restaurant made a valentine's day drink for us! How sweet!

Our dinner!

Had to try their grilled sweetcorn. It was 10,000 rupiah which is about S$1.60.

It was so delicious! It was better than the dinner we had!

Finally to the Rindu Bali spa! 

The total cost of the dinner and the spa was USD$70.00 for two people. It think it was money well spent! I got this contact from a brochure from the airport. Unfortunately, I left it at the hotel!

OK, I am very sun burned and tired now. Will post more of our Honeymoon tomorrow. Stay tuned!
