Solo travel planning

So I wanna go explore the world – alone.

(I’m sorry to anyone who reads this and ends up reading my mindless rambing.)

Anyway, currently lurking at FabCafe and eating red velvet cake. #fatdieme which is slightly less creepy and weird than lurking next to the 3D printer. and we all know which option I prefer. hint: it involves the 3D printer. LOL!

Anyway. back to topic.

I have a bunch of places I want to travel to.

My criteria:
– not too expensive.
– nearby. at the most a 3-4 hour flight from Singapore.
– has history and culture. so museums and historical stuff.

Basically that.

A couple of places on my list:
Penang. Only went there for a couple of hours during a port stop on a cruise. seems like an interesting place. is nearby. can probably budget airline there. and Malaysian food is always better.

Hong Kong. is still near Singapore. I always go there until I can find my way around. I just like that place.

Malacca. was supposed to go there with the ex-Boy earlier this year. then plans fell apart cos I fell very very sick. then you-know-what happened. So yeah. I wanna go there myself. Mainly for the food. and maybe the alcohol. heh.

IDK where else. LOL

Actually I wanna go to China as well. AND HAUL HOME SOMETHING LIKE 36828682 BAJILLION ROLLS OF FILAMENT. AHAHA ~ (I think is okay as long as I don’t haul home another 3D printer.) (actually I wanna build another RepRap, but IDK which one. also don’t know how to build.)


Batam for the weekend

Headed to the island of Batam with a few of the work friends for the weekend.

It was much fun and a good getaway from Singapore.

So here are the pics.

The ferry ride over. I mainly listened to music and stared at passing ships.

PSA: I might scream

Hello Hi. There is a chance I might get to sail on the Queen Victoria next year.

Everyone please be prepared for me to scream like a madwoman when I do. Because my first love, before 3D printing, before astronomy, before FPV drones, before the ex-Boy, before The Martian, before almost anything, was ocean liners. And the Queen Elizabeth 2 is my beloved – even up to now. I sailed on the QE2 in 2007, on the Queen Mary 2 in 2010, and maybe it is now time for the Queen Victoria.

(Just so you know, I refer to the QE2 as the wife.)

Going to the sort-of Cunard travel agent in a couple of weeks, will update on my travel plans.

JB day trip – 15th July 2017

Last Saturday, the work friends and I headed into Johor Bahru for the day. The plan was to eat, shop, relax and do pretty much whatever we wanted to do.

As you can see. We ate a lot of food. It was all very yummy. 

Also I bought stuff. And yes my trash brain had to buy a magazine on 3D printing. I also bought other stuff like medication, hair ties and other nonsense.
