Jun 16th, 2016 Travel rojakcouture 1 min read

Its tough to really put some experiences into verbal/textual definition so here’s a short Snap review of my rounds on my last day in California. I took a couple of hours just exploring some parts of Downtown Los Angeles to the historic section and parts of its Arts District. I took my time with my tripod really oogling the old buildings, people watch and even get…

#HYTravels – Double Duty at Niland, California

Jun 9th, 2016 Uncategorized rojakcouture 12 min read

Driving for about 3 hours for the perfect OOTD seems like a ridiculous stretch, however, being the quirky if not, crazy adventurer myself; I set off solo for a 3-hour trip to explore an almost barren part of SoCal located south called Niland. Starting from Heidi Nazaruddin’s house (aka you can follow her on Instagram here @theambitionista) in Santa Monica, the drive from the coast…

HYTravels: Corinthos – Parnitha – Sounion

Almost two days of nosing about in Athens have had me curious. What lies outside of this amazing city was a million of hectares of unexplored photo-ops, historical ruins and breathtaking terrains. Reading all of the trip advisor reccommendations only fueled my curiosity further; got ourselves a rental ride throughout our stay and naturally were inclined to take our senses for an adventure on a…

HYTravels : Into Athens and Beyond (Part 1)

After a quick escapade to magical Rhodes Island, my husband and I decide to embark back to the capital of Greece – also a place I have always wanted to explore thanks to my keenness for Greek/Roman mythology (or all things mythological to be exact). Again, while Hollywood only seems to show Greece by its islands (like the tiny Island of Skopelos of Mamma Mia! )…

HYTravels: A Greek Odyssey in Rhodes

Greece. A country so vigorously associated with its picturesque islands like Mykonos, Santorini and of course, Greek mythology. The fact above also happens to be the only correlation I have with the South-east European country, and the economic setback that the republic is facing as of right now. Despite the grim situation, the same could not be said about its gorgeous beaches, amazing food and…

#HYTravels: Zermatt, Switzerland.

Having never seen snow (apart from that trip to Korea back in ’14 where the snow was really just slush) , I was super keen to visit one of the most reknowned ski resorts in the world. Located just outside the border of Italy, Zermatt is a town located in one of the highest points of the Swiss Alps, namely the Matterhorn and Monte Rosa, the…

#HYTravels: Milan

I have only managed to stay for 3 days in Milan, but throughout those few days, it was suffice to secure my beliefs that Milan is one of those places in my list that I could foresee myself living in. Indeed the obvious would be credited to its fashion scene; great food and gorgeous Italian men (ha!) so to conclude my honeymoon trip in the city…
