Those small moments

When you were exiting your plane with your beau, hand in hand, and you're listening to this one song and isolating that moment in your head, which made you smile so big because the song reminded you that you're so lucky to be loved by him.

Then he caught a glimpse of you smiling  and asked, "What's up? Why are you smiling?" And you just smile more and say, "Oh nothing..." And realized how happy you are to spend an amazing time with him and can't wait to spend the rest of your life with him... Thanks to that one song. 

Now every time I hear that song now, that little moment pops up in my head, walking down the airport in Basel, heading to the baggage claim, hand in hand, and it makes me smile so wide. Small intimate moments like that makes me happy.

Oh and that song was John Mayer and Katy Perry's "Who You Love"

Gosh I miss him.

.... mmmm....
i don't have any desire to post anything.
zilch. zero. nada. nein.

gonna take a hiatus.
need to find inspirations.
i think it's because i've been too busy working (it's getting dull and monotonous).
i think it's because of me and rob being far apart. my weekends consist of either working or seriously lounging at home. since he's been gone, i have become a true homebody. 

i will still be active on instagram. it's a lot easier than blogging. point, click, post.

au revoir, blog land. i will be back. hopefully better.

And the next trip is to...


I seriously can not contain myself. At first I was hesitant to change my itinerary, but with some convincing from The Pillow (oh thanks love), I was like, "F* it! #YOLO". If not now, when.

Well I will be only there for a 4 day weekend, then followed with my original plan of going to Zurich. One thing is that I have multiple layovers, including one-nighter in Oslo, but hay, enjoy it while I can, right? Plus I love Heathrow Airport.

Our main goal is, of course, to see Aurora Borealis. I am really hoping for a view, even if it's for 5 minutes. I will probably cry.

Now time to buy some snow boots. I guess an investment since I will be using that in Zurich too!

And just like that...

I just booked an impromptu trip to Zurich again. 
Being in a long distance/overseas relationship is hard.
You miss your lover yet circumstances is in the way.
The Pillow was supposed to visit me in February yet his work schedule is crazy. He had to postponed his trip :(
Meanwhile, I already arranged my work schedule for his visit. #fail.
Then an idea came up. #dingdingding
"Oh hay, girl. You got the time off and you got miles to use... Then why don't you fly out to Zurich?"
And just like that, I just booked my flight out to Zurich for February.

This will be my first international trip for 2015.
Well, this upcoming Tuesday was supposed to be it, to Jakarta... But it got cancelled because of a death in the family. And I'm claiming it on my travel insurance. Let's see where that goes. I'm already expecting major loss on my ticket and hotel. Has anyone dealt with claiming on travel insurance for cancellation? #lesigh

Anyways, I can't wait for February. There is a chance that Rob might have a travel assignment while I'm there (not sure where, most likely somewhere in France) and he told me that I can tag along. Yaaassss...

Isn't it crazy that I miss being in a plane?
