Wedding Town

To say that this day in our trip did not go according to plan would be my year's biggest understatement. We had two places in mind today - an old town and this little gem. Our morning started well enough - quick breakfast, getting my butt off our comfy hotel bed long enough to get a shower and outfit on, and then booking a two-person bike. Yep. Two-person bike. Remind me never to do this again! Leon and I fought the entire way, arguing about heat, and heavy body weight, and dusty roads. Never again. Haha, one for the bucket list though. We never got to the old town.

Then, finally, after making nice and having a short lunch, we came here - to Wedding Town. Oh and we snuck in. Haha. See...Wedding Town is not open to the public, since married couples have to pay to take pictures here. Luckily, Leon started talking to this one guy, who was actually a vendor looking to rent inside, and he actually snuck as in as his colleagues! Hahaha. Really. Anyways, this is hands-down one of the most bizarre places ever. What looks like a mishmash of European and Middle Earth architecture, and hundreds of brides, all braving the heat in full-length gowns and veils. We were probably the only two people not taking pictures in wedding gear. Haha. This is why there aren't more pictures actually. Didn't want to get caught.

Anyways, the outfit that day was just simple. Good too, since I swear I must have yelled obscenities in about three languages hauling that stupid two-person bike almost four kilometres. Imagine if I did that in heels. I might have thrown them at Leon's head in annoyance! 

The day ended in an obscure beach, which we did not plan to go to - hence going without swimwear - and we swam. We ended that day dripping wet, sitting in our rented car in our wet undies! Haha, oh the things Leon and I find ourselves in. You'd think we were afraid of planning or something - which is not the case. We usually plan a lot of things.

So, do you like the pictures, darlings? Would you sneak in? Let me know in the comments below! See you soon - Che

Interlaken | Over the Hills and Faraway


Hi lovelies! Well I'm back in Macau, sans Leon. Sigh. It was a perfectly comfortable couple of days away from my little home - not too far, but a whole different scenery altogether. Anyways, I was planning to make a quick change of outfits for these photos, just to have a variety of outfits. But...well, we got distracted by all the pretty colors and photo ops.

The place we went to is called Interlaken - an out-of-the-way resort town-cum-hotel. The whole place was basically a jumble of things, including a Swiss-themed town and hotel (where we stayed a night), a nature trail, amusement park, and a little bit of a Chinese-cultured jumble. In short form, everything in one place, which is to be expected in China. I can't say they did a bad job though! The place was something out of a fairytale, and not crowded to boot. I asked Leon why in the hell a pretty place like this wouldn't have more tourists, but he shrugged and said it was too far out. As part of his little surprise though, he rented us a car for the whole weekend, so we drove here.

The hotel is all sorts of pretty too! We stayed a night in the villa, overlooking the mountains, just gorging out on in-room dining and watching the day go by at the balcony. Perfection. It did rain the night before and continued till the early morning, but if anything, it made the weather bearable. I love mountain weather - almost reminds me of fall!

Oh and we bought bubbles. I love bubbles. Brought this wand around with me for the rest of our trip and twirled around making magic (okay, bubbles) anytime I could. Yes, just like I'm four. Haha, I still have it. I might go out later tonight to make even more bubbles, hahaha.

So, what do you think? Would you ever try to make the trip here? If for nothing more than the amazing view? Let me know in the comments, darlings! I'll see you soon - Che

Queen of the Flowers

Greetings from some part of Mainland China, darlings. For my longtime readers, you may know by now the September Trifecta of events I usually have this blessed month - my birthday, wedding, and dating anniversaries from the 18th to the 20th. Tee hee. This year, Leon and I decided that a short trip was best, and I gave him full rein in the travel plans to go somewhere in China - anywhere, really. He passed, with flying colors. He's not a planner (not of trips anyway) but he did so well.

Anyways, without giving anything away (that's for next time), I found myself matching the scenery in the best way possible - with a field of flowers. Actually, there's a low bamboo fence around the perimeter, but...hehe...I would do anything for good pictures. The opportunity was just too good to pass up. This long line top, I bought it a few weeks ago, and from the start, I have planned to wear it as a dress. Just one of those things. Oh and the black peeking out from under my outfit are not my knickers - they're a pair of shorts. Tee hee, just had to get that out there.

We're still here now, but in a different location. Tomorrow, again, is a mystery. This little travel experiment has been, for lack of a better word, exciting. I suggested to Leon that we do one of these surprise trips at least twice a year. Book a plane/ferry/train to anywhere, and surprise the other. Gonna be so much fun! So I'll see you soon loves? Do you like the flowers? - Che
