Wrap It Up: It’s Over, You’re Cancelled, 2017.

2017 is coming to an end. Time sure just flies by, doesn’t it? There were certainly lots of ups and downs this year.

My IG's best nine

To be honest, I don't feel like writing about much about the downs because it's mostly about me being mentally unstable and depressed. Not surprisingly, writing about it is depressing and so does reading about it. Thus, I shall spare you my dark side. However, if you're interested in getting to know my sick mind, have a read over here.

Onward and upward to a few good happenings this year:
  • Long-distance relationship sure is a bitch, but my boyfriend and I are now together for over a year. Despite being apart most of the year, we were still able to make it work - no piece of cake I'm telling you, but fuck yeah, did we excel at overcoming difficult hurdles! ✊  It's a constant struggle and bittersweet, particularly given how I am mentally - it was very difficult - but with him, I'm able to be my vulnerable self and let my guard down completely - a side I don't think I rarely ever show to anybody - so I know this relationship is special.   It's over.
  • Reuniting with Jojo and Nick in Phuket and Bangkok. Good times is an understatement! So much delicious vegan food was devoured - obviously!
  • On the 1st of May, I adopted Leia 💝  She's quite a character - a complete opposite of Nala who is always chill.
  • An incredible trip to Ninh Bình with my boyfriend. I can't recommend visiting this place enough! Don't believe me? Read about our trip here - just one post for now, but more to come 😄
No new year's resolutions for me, but if you have any, I hope you'll be able to achieve them or at least keep them up for a month or two, okay? 😉

That's a wrap! Thanks for reading 😸

Explore Norhern Vietnam - Day 1 In Ninh Bình

After over eight months, I was finally able to reunite with my boyfriend 😁  We didn't get to travel during his last visit because I'd just moved into my flat, so things were a bit hectic then. Thus, this time, we tried to fit in a travel plan to the North.

Chosen destination: Ninh Bình 💚

VGang in Phuket: Honourable Mentions

Welcome to the finale of Vegan Food Adventure in Phuket! The finale features honourable vegan eats that did not make it the top roundup in my last Phuketpost hehe. It would have been an overwhelming post if I had squeezed all the food in one post, so this seems more reasonable.

Check out previous episodes here: Episode 1 and Episode 2.

VGang ate a lot of food during Phuket Veg Fest. I took a new writing approach to my last post about my top picks from the trip first (idea credit: Nick 💁 ). This one, I dedicate this post to the rest of the good stuff 😁

Vegan Gang Taking Over Phuket Vegetarian Festival

And we're back for another episode of Vegan Food Adventure In Phuket!

This year, Phuket Vegetarian Festival went on from the 20th to 28th of October. I arrived on the 22nd - an interesting arrival 😅 , which I talked about in my last post here.

First Phuket post was mainly storytelling. This post right here, however, is all about food-telling 😋

Gearing Up For Phuket Vegetarian Festival!

Hello there!

I just got back from a brilliant trip to Phuket attending Phuket Vegetarian Festival for the first time! It was heaven, absolute heaven! Well, the weather was hot, which is never my favourite, but hey, I'm cool as long as the food is good, and boy, was it!

I'm splitting this Phuket trip into a couple of posts.

I had quite an experience travelling to Phuket for the first time. This post is about this experience - not much food going on, but it was quite an interesting journey, so read on if you're curious. If not, wait for Part 2 where I will focus on my vegan food adventure more 😊
