Hanoi, Vietnam

March 25, 2009

We’re in Hanoi, Vietnam since one week ago and really enjoy our time here. The city center is very bizzy with typical asian pulse and all the sizzling colours. We’re staying in the outskirts of the city (15 min with car) where it is much calmer…We have also went exploring Halong Bay (3 h from Hanoi). The rocks sticking out of the water over there is actually one of the worlds nature wonder so it was nice to see. It almost looked like the sky was falling down on the rocks…

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

March 25, 2009

Sorry for the poor update the last days. I have been very busy with my main website http://www.stylebyme.net/ which is my main focus and therefore did not have time for my travel blog which is more of a hobby for me. So a quick update: We spent a few days in Kuala Lampur in Malaysia where we mostly relaxed, was lying by the pool and had a look around town:

Sintosa Island

Afternoon tea at Raffles hotel

March 12, 2009

We went to the legendary Raffles hotel to have a look at the hotel and also have some traditional afternoon tea. It was really cosy and the hotel was really unique. It was about a 100 petite japanese girls there dong the same as us. It’s so funny how I feel like a huge amazon woman in this part of the world : ) All the people are so small and even when I’m standing next to a man, I’m looking down at him.

A night out with Petter

March 11, 2009

Our friend Petter from Malta is in Singapore so we met him for dinner and drinks at a stake-house close by. After a few drinks we continued to a very cosy place where you sat on floor-sofas and sipped drink and just relax. Last stop was a club at level 72 where we had a cool view over Singapore. A really fun evening : )

It took about 4 seconds to get up 72 floors in this elevator, you could feel it in your ears.

Awesome view:

Singapore

March 11, 2009

We flew from Sydney sunday evening and 10 hours later we landed in Singapore. Tired and slightly hang-overed we checked in and fell asleep immediately. Waking up the morning after, and the rain was pouring outside the window. It continued the rest of the day and it even got worse. So we decided to have a relaxed day and stay inside and just work, go to the Spa and eat a good meal. Next day we had to compromise for the laziness and hit town:

Meeting up with Stan and Petra

Stanley and Petra (friends from Malta) is here in Sydney so we met up with them. Tonight is the big Gay-Pride Festival so we didn’t wanna miss that. We went to a party with them and had really fun. Afterwards we were strolling around in the chaotic city filled with very drunk people : )
