Taipei,Taiwan 5D4N Trip : June 2016

So, i'm back from SF for summer holidays again, and i went to Taiwan(specifically Taipei) with my parents this time around... 

Day 1: 
We arrived around 3pm-ish... checked in straight to our abnb... Our abnb was in Ximending, which made it really easy for us to look for food. :P 
First restaurant we went in...I was blown away by how fresh their sashimi were...

CAN WE TAKE A MINUTE TO APPRECIATE HOW FRESH EVERYTHING WERE? i don't even like tuna...but this was sooo gooood!
Bacon wrapped spring onions with mayo, not bad!
Finally got to try the famous 阿宗面线... no offense but it was the worst thing i have ever eaten in my life... what was the hype all about?
Day 2:
We booked a taxi to bring us around Jiufen,Shifen, and nearby places... 
Stopped by at a place called 阴阳海 for pictures... a family portrait!
And headed straight to Jiufen! this place reminded me so much of the movie Spirited Away...
Spirited Away level x100000...

阿甘姨芋圆... super refreshing for the weather!!! 
And then our last stop was Shifen... Shifen was a place where we get to write our wishes on sky lanterns and release it...writing my wishes on the sky lantern lol... 
Time to let go of our sky lantern...
We had dinner at a restaurant behind our abnb, recommended by our taxi driver...
 Something you couldn't find in Malaysia... i really really liked the mihun!

Day 3:
We went to Taipei 101! 
 a photo with the famous LOVE logo :)
 Don't think it was worth it to go all the way up the tower, since the view wasn't THAT fantastic... but it was my first time so...
 shopped around the mall since it was raining cats & dogs outside :( Finally tried out Agnes B. Cafe...! pricey & not worth the money!

Day 4:
Did some touristy stuff, visiting the palace musuem etcetc...(sorry no pictures)... 
But after we went to 新光三越to try out Pablo!!! didn't really know how i felt about it, i kinda liked it but i don't as well :/
The matcha cheese tart was pretty good tho! 
Before heading to the airport, we tried 牛店, quite a famous restaurant specializing in beef noodles... ummmm (super overrated), still prefer Malaysia's beef brisket noodles :/
that's about it! Byeeee! :)

Anaheim Disneyland & Los Angeles 4D3N trip: March 2016

Hello hello hello! This post is definitely long overdue but here it is... my trip to L.A&Anaheim during spring break! 
We took a bus from SF-LA, and then a train to Anaheim... the whole journey took us 8 hours! But it was worth it :)
Day 1: 
Most of the time were spent on the bus & train... but here's a picture from my Snapchat on how the train looks like (just in case you were wondering)...

Day 2:
TIME FOR DISNEYLAND!!! It was packed with people since it was spring break and all the rides had long lines T_T
I was considered really lucky because there wasn't a crowd in my picture... lol
Mad Hatter ride...
A photo with Chewie!!! the only character we took picture with... we looked like kids i can't...HAHAHA
 Star Wars Launch Bay... a must for every Star Wars fans!
 waited 90 minutes for Space Mountain... i didn't really enjoyed it :/
The famous Dole Whip in Disneyland... we waited 40 minutes for this... definitely not worth it at all... it tasted like canned pineapples made into an ice cream LOL
But turkey leg was AMAAAZING... i remember this being my favorite in Disney when i was a kid, and it still is!!!
The parade at night was so pretty, sadly the fireworks was cancelled due to strong wind sigh(luck)...

Day 3:
We left Anaheim and went to LA :( we reached LA around 2pm-ish, had lunch and went to Santa Monica Pier... it was my 2nd time there, still a waste of time i would say.
went back to downtown LA to try out Pressed Freeze by Pressed Juicery, it's basically fruit juices made into froyo form... YUMMMMMM!
This pretty sums up our entire trip! I would definitely be back!!! Byeeeee! :)

Miami & Ultra Music Festival 8D7N Trip : March 2015

Spring break is finally over... I went to Miami for a week for the Ultra Music Festival! Man.... Ultra was definitely one of the best experiences in my life! (there will be quite a lot of videos in this post though, hahaha)
Day 1,2 &3:
For day 1, we didn't do much because we were so exhausted from a midnight flight... We just headed to Bayside Marketplace for dinner, chilled around the bar at night and that's about it.... We had an early dinner in Chilli's... Surprisingly it's really cheap... around $20 for 2 entrees and 1  appetizer!

During day 2 we headed to South Beach! we had brunch at one of the famous brunch place in Miami called The Front Porch cafe... loved their french toasts!!!
South Beach!!!! it wasn't really crowded because we were near the hotel area :D
 bought coconuts for $2.50 each lol... omg it was so bitter.... :/
i looked frustrated because i was sweating like mad.....
 For Day 3 we went to Wynwood... it's more like an art district in Miami! filled with street arts...

In Mmmm Wynwood cafe.... my Nutella ice cream was misfocused... but i really loved the interior of the cafe!

Loved the eggs benedict in The Morgan's Restaurant!

Before going in for Ultra, we had lunch nearby in Bali Cafe... the cafe owner gave us a free salad because he knew we were Malaysians haha! This was THE BEST MEAL I EVER HAD IN USA..... :O
Day 1 in Ultra.... was tiring. and disgusting. but still fun!  it rained the whole time we were there! loved the lineup though... (Dash Berlin, Afrojack, Alesso, Avicii, Tiesto,....)

selfie cos' i'm drenched under the rain....but thanks to the rain though, it made the music more fun to dance with! lol
a photo from my Snapchat lol... my legs were so disgusting after the rain OMG...
Day 2 in Ultra! Met these 2 guys who dressed up as priests lol.... 
Day 2's lineup were W&W, Fedde Le Grand, Steve Aoki, Martin Garrix, Armin Van Buuren, Hardwell, Axwell&Ingrosso....
Enjoyed Martin Garrix's performance the most! 
Martin Garrix playing Gold Skies...my favorite song from him! 

And for day 3... which was my favourite throughout the 3 days in Ultra.... The lineups were Andrew Rayel, Robin Schulz, DJ Snake, Nicky Romero, Krewella, Knife Party, Armin Van Buuren, David Guetta, Skrillex,.... 
we went early because Andrew Rayel's lineup was at 3pm... :) even though i went for his rave during Valentine's day lol....
loved his sets because i listen to his songs everyday on iTunes and my iPod.... *no shame* :X missed Robin Schulz for him though hahaha (worth it)
A video for his song ''one in a million''... never gets old... :) one of my top 3 fav songs lol...

Finally bought an Ultra snapback!!!! super sad the floral ones were sold out :(

We went for Krewella's performance next... OMG.... it was THE BEST PERFORMANCE EVER!!!!! seriously ugh!!!!!!!! so glad i missed Knife Party for Krewella(HAHAHAHA, i might get killed for saying this.....)
Loved how they were so engaged with their audience! and there was variety, they even had a live band omg! ... :) hahaha! i'll definitely go for their concert next time... hopefully they'll have one soon in San Francisco... or KL...
sorry there were many videos of me screaming in the background so this one will do... hahahaha they played one of my fav song... Seven Nation's Army!!!

loved the crowd for Krewella's performance because everyone actually knew the full lyrics to their songs OMG....
David Guetta was so predictable... Titanium? Dangerous? Lovers on The Sun, Play Hard? yeah.. so predictable :S
A perfect end for Ultra! Skrillex!!!! with special guest Justin Bieber and 2NE1... wtf.. but here's a video for Skrillex's intro! 
fyi, Ultra's next new country is Singapore!!!!! ;) ok bye!
didn't do much during the last day in Miami... because we were too exhausted and lazy T_T
