Annual Mt Perisher Snowboard trip

It's that time of the year again, 6 hours 3am drive, I'm not driving this year though I'm bit gutted since I don't mind a long drive once in a while.

First day when we get there there is not much snow at all it's just patches and I'm kinda dissapponted and that day we ended up hanging out at the bar for some beer.

We checked into our holiday house it's a 2 bedroom with a lovely view of  Lake Jindabyne and just chill out for the night and hoping that the forecasted blizzard will actually come true.

Oh! And yes I woke up with slightly sore head (thank you beer) but with a smile on my face heh! My wish came true! It's white outside covered on snow horraaayy

We are so excited that we ran out of the door to get to the slope. The drive was exciting, the road and creeks are all covered in snow.

It was a lovely day with consistent snow keep on falling and dry air to keep the freez the only thing that was annoying me was the snow making machine, it blows straight to my face, so really i felt like im eating snow all day long. I have improved alot during this trip i can actually go up and down the mountain with both side, did more runs than before and of course less fall when i actually get off the lift. The next step for me will be picking up more speed and be more confident on a more narrow slope.

Before we go back to the city we need to somehow digg the car out of thr snow

Hallo Jakarta!

Good old Jakarta,
If it's not because of the traffic it's actually a very interesting place to visit. Yea but that is just a wishlist...

This time I didn't visit for leisure so I didn't get to do much loitering around the mall. I went to the newly open uniqlo and that's about it as far as mall goes

Other time my dad, me and my brother go for a drive to Bogor and did abit of off track driving

Ate at a hut shaped restaurant that look super dodgy

Hangout with my extended family,

my cat 

My dog

And that's it really....not so eventful 

Tot zien Jakarta

Aloha hawaii


Hawaii never disappoint, great people, amazing food and of course beautiful beaches. 

This time I stayed in waikiki again the hotel I stayed in got a really nice pool view and just few blocks away from the beach and shops 

I arrived late at night and decided to catch a taxi from the airport to waikiki, unfortunately I didn't get to see much that night. 

I woke up at 5am in the morning, I ran to the beach and saw the most beautiful sunrise in a long time.

That day I decided to go to Ala Moana shopping center to grab some food and I know a secret spot on the rooftop to see the view of waikiki

Another activities is the Moana waterfall walk, since I'm on my own I decided to do a safe easy walk. I took a bus and on the way there rain started pouring luckily it stopped half way through however the track become very muddy and I ended up covered by mud by the end if the trip it was good fun after all 

Other than that I chill on the beach,

enjoying the beautiful sunset 

Enjoying the view from my balcony while enjoying nice cold beer

Having great food at the JW Marriot resort 

Of course with fabulous sake cocktails to go with it and cold sake afterwards 

I was sad to leave hawaii, it's my number 1 holiday destination and I can't wait to go back!

Mahalo :)
