Break My Style | Highlights of my 2014 Travels

Highlights of my 2014 Travels

It was very hard for me to find a cover photo for this post because these are compilation of all my unforgettable travels this year. I remember making a wish/goal last December 2013 saying I hope to travel more next year and it truly has been a wonderful journey for me. I’ve traveled to places I’ve never been to, met new friends along the way and most importantly, grew as a person and experienced so many things this 2014. I’ve rearranged all my travel photos from January until November and I hope you have a great time joining me in this recap- and even if I’m not traveling with you guys, I hope you feel like you’re also with me through these pictures.

February: Korea. It was this trip that I decided Korean is my favourite cuisine. I couldn’t stop eating! And yes, It was cold (around 2 to -3 degrees), but not as cold as New York.

5. Feb New York

February: New York. Thank you Guess for inviting me to New York and attending your after party. I had the best time of my life. I met so many bloggers that I look up to like Kristina Bazan (Kayture) and Aimee Song (Song of Style) and designers like Vivienne Tam and Josie Natori. Dream come true. New York will always be one of my favourite destinations.

10. March Japan

March: Japan. My first time in Japan and I’m so happy I was able to see some of their tourist places. I also got to go inside Google’s office and see one Cherry Blossom tree. How cool is that.

16. May Cambodia

May: Cambodia. It’s really a country you have to go to at least once in your life. The temples are absolutely breath taking and it’s unbelievable how all of them are man made. Everything is so cheap too! $0.50 for a glass of beer!

26. August London

27. Aug London

August: London. My ultimate favourite travel this year. I guess it’s because I was there with my sister and friends and it just made the entire trip more interesting and fun. I also studied at Central Saint Martins and it was definitely a trip worth remembering. Thank you again Prime App for making it happen!

29. Aug KL

August: Kuala Lumpur. First of the many times I went there this year. I think I went to KL three or four times this 2014! I flew there to attend the MTV World Stage and even got to meet the artists personally during interviews. I also went with Tim Yap and my best buddy Sean Go, which made the trip extra great.
