I'm your loud friend who loves raw, exotic, hearty stuff (I mean food duh), my 🐢 Luna, dressing up, travelling and jumping around, no, literally.

April has the perfect chilly weather to walk around in Hamburg, not too cold, overall very comfortable. It's beautiful everywhere u turn, with lovely trees lining the sidewalk, some with gorgeous white leaves, and lots of fantastic historical looking buildings. I was mainly in Rathaus (City Hall) area but the stylish design hotel we were put up in was located in Reeperbahn which has a very interesting night scene (ie red light district) haha. Shops close early at around 7pm or 8pm hence I didn't get to shop much after work unfortunately. Definitely a place I would love to explore more. And did u know that the Hamburger originated here? πŸ˜‰ #Hamburg #AJinHamburg #Rathaus #Reeperbahn #ajtravels #worktrip #worktravel

My maiden SQ Premium Economy flight back in Apr. Definitely worth it to have a more comfortable seat with great legroom (esp on a long haul flight), more personal and storage space, nice noise cancelling headphones and did someone say champagne and Book the Cook meals? πŸ‘βœˆοΈ #ajtravels #AJinHamburg #singaporeairlines #flysq #worktrip #ajeats #aijiak

And...after two months I'm finally concluding my Melbourne trip postings. And all I can say is...it's the people that make a place. Melbourne is an absolutely fantastic place, you get really amazing food and coffee, beautiful places in town, downtown, just outside of it (Yarra Valley, Great Ocean Road), some pretty good shopping around etc. Most of all, the people are truly so warm and lovely, always greeting u with a "how ya doin", always sincere to help. Nothing is more comforting that that for a solo traveller. And my wonderful airbnb hosts personify that. Stef and Glenn really went out of the way to make things comfy, sharing their gorgeous home and lovely fur kids and hip places to go. I'm so lucky to have chosen their home as my first ever airbnb stay. And of course, I met so many other wonderful ppl. Melbourne is and will remain to be one of my favourite cities. #ajtravels #melbourne #AJinMelbourne #airbnb #lifeisgood #doggy

I can't believe I procrastinated so long to finish posting about Melbourne. There is so much good stuff I wanna share! Uncle was a hidden gem that I never would have found without my airbnb host's recommendation. With such an unassuming name, Uncle's St Kilda is definitely an underrated Vietnamese restaurant. I was blown away by this crazy good lime cured hapuka with coconut like wtf how does this mish mash taste so good! And I had pig ears bahn mi yaas and a comforting bowl of pho and this amazing crazy lookin' Bloody Mary (u know how much I love this cocktail). Such a satisfying dinner in a beautiful open air setting (level 2)! #ajeats #aijiak #onthetable #bloodymary #unclestkilda #melbourne #ajtravels #AJinMelbourne

Rollin', rollin', rollin' on the river. This was legit one of the best cafe foods I've ever tasted - an amazing curry puff like creation paired with good strong coffee. I even had a nitrogen infused cold brew to go. One of my faves in Melbourne! #proudmary #proudmarymelbourne #cafe #ajeats #aijiak #ajtravels #melbourne #AJinMelbourne

Did u know that seagulls 🐦can just kinda hover in the air without flapping their wings? It is the weirdest sight! So anw there were these two people who thought it was a fantastic idea to have a beach picnic. They went to the nearby Prahran market and picked up a good lot of fresh oysters 🐚 , some fresh fruits πŸ“ , some arancini πŸ™ (which were later discovered to be uncooked and fed to the birds instead) and brought a bottle of fine sparkling πŸ₯‚. On arriving, they were surprised to discover that the beach 🌊 was deserted af. Oh right, strong af winds! So they made do at the far end of the beach and still had a ball of a time 🀣🀣😎 #ajeats #aijiak #beachlife #beachpicnic #stkilda #prahranmarket #chandon #oysterislife #arancini #seagulls

This was a literal hole in the wall (like look at the entrance) that was highly recommended by my airbnb hosts so off we went (walking dist from my airbnb)! Very legit hipster place with delicious vegan food (I swear) and awesome coffee (is there ever bad coffee in Melbourne?). I devoured a tasty avocado goat cheese toast and GW got the umami mushroom. Perfect start to the morning #ajeats #aijiak #onthetable #ajtravels #AJinMelbourne #melbourne #cafes #monkbodhidharma

Comfy tights and my trusty MK trench coat (that I took also took to Sydney winter years ago) are totes essential for a wonderful slightly chilly weather in Melbourne. #ootd #wiwt #ajtravels #melbourne

Yay to a super delicious meal at Ides!! When we realise we gonna be gng to Melbourne in the same period, we were like okay must find a nice restaurant. Some, like Attica, were fully booked, so we settled on Ides in the end and it didn't disappoint! A lot of thought went into the dishes and they continually surprised. #ajeats #aijiak #ajtravels #melbourne #ides #idesmelbourne #onthetable

So I joined two group tours alone when I was in Melbourne 2 months ago and they were definitely awesome experiences! Managed to click with another solo traveller on the GOR tour and we chatted and helped each other snap photos. The NEXT day, I was just strolling along St Kilda beach when I heard someone call out 'AJ!' I tot couldn't be me la cause how many ppl do I know in Melbourne amirite. Lo and behold, it's my new friend Saul who was with his friend! What are the odds?! Joined them for a great drink and catch up. It is pretty amazing how fate brings people tgt. Hope to see u in Cali / SG / elsewhere! πŸ˜„πŸ˜„πŸ˜Ž #newfriends #coincidence #melbourne #ajtravels #fate
