Across the sky to English country

I haven’t been updating as often as I should have. Because, one … I got caught up in work. And two, I was just being lazy. Kota Kinabalu has been raining for the past three days and I am feeling a little under the weather lately. The worst thing to happen when travelling. But I am not travelling at the moment, so I should feel relief (despite the cold). Last month and after 26 years, I returned to England with my mother. It was an impromptu decision and I purchased our round-trip tickets four weeks prior to flying on Nov 13. Although I was born in the United Kingdom, my travel to this English country was my first. It was a lovely 10-degree celcius when we arrived. It was cold, it was raining, and it got dark as early as 4pm. But we were lucky not to catch a cold during our one week trip. Here are pictures taken on the first day we arrived (because I am too lazy to go through all the albums 🙂

Something creepy in Aarhus

This week photo challenge: Creepy, takes me back to Aarhus.

When I was travelling in Aarhus, I made it a point to visit the city’s art museum and Denmark’s oldest public art museum – ARos Aarhus Kunstmuseum.

This 10-storey building is about 15-minute (or more) walk from the train station/city centre. The art museum offers visitors a variety of exhibitions and each floor brings you to different sections of arts, some of which are very challenging and mindblowing. In other words, CREEPY and STRANGE.

Weekly photo challenge: Vivid

Vivid; adjective strikingly bright or intense, as color, light, etc. full of life; lively It is fun to dress up when exploring new places. And the strong and rich Balinese culture makes me want to do just that. This island with over 4 million population (according to 2014 census on Wikipedia) is definitely a place where one should return after their first visit. P/S oh! and the little girl in my featured image, she’s my niece 🙂

Weekly photo challenge: Forces of nature

Today, I decided to participate in a weekly photo challenge. When I read the theme for this week, I was not sure how to interpret forces of nature.  My understanding was that a natural force should leave a strong impact…an aftermath of a natural disaster such as the recent earthquake in Kathmandu or the 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake and tsunami, which killed more than 200,000 people. So I did a basic research: what is a force of nature and what is considered a force of nature? Then I decided to stick to the simple force of nature – the sunset. On Saturday, I went to watch the sun set with two Danish friends, who flew to the Philippines the next day. We had drinks and great conversation. As the sun made its way into the horizon, there was a moment of silence. There were people taking pictures and there were those who just sat quietly and enjoyed the moment. It was a beautiful feeling. As we headed for dinner, Marina and Mette agreed watching the sunset was the perfect choice to end their two-week holiday in Sabah. And …
