Posting schedule might be messed up this week as I’m currently travelling.
Btw it’s #lavender season! Have you ever visited a lavender field?
If you’re around the #NY area and you can’t travel to France to see them check out Lavender by the Bay, but make sure it’s the right season (usually end of June to the first two weeks of July) and watch out for the bees 🐝 🐝 🐝.

Skincare Sundays are now a thing and I’m particularly loving the @dermalogicaaus hydrating face wash to cure my dry skin whilst I hibernate for the remainder of Winter. 🐻❄️
The giant dancing puppet figures known as MOJIGANGAS exude sheer delight, joy, and are an essential part of the San Miguel de Allende fiestas. But the hard work, rituals, and devotion behind the revelry must also be appreciated. To be a Mojiganga entails much more than dressing up and wiggling about in the street.
According to history, figures of cardboard, paper and cloth were brought to Mexico by Spaniards around 1600. During this early period, the Mojigangas were used to evoke joy during important religious pilgrimages. They also were fashioned as effigies of saints and kings, but figures were also satirically fashioned to ridicule public figures. Such was the fate of an unpopular count or prince (and were any popular among the common people?). The tradition of the dances disseminated throughout Mexico and took on different manifestations according to the style of the local artisans and the materials available to them. #mojigangas

Happy Pride Month everyone 🌈 Does your city have a pride parade? Singapore doesn’t (YET) but we do have @pinkdotsg, an annual event where pink-clad locals gather to form a giant illuminated “pink dot” in the city as a sign of support for the LGBTQ+ community. It may not sound like much, but seeing that pink dot grow larger every year is something that truly makes me proud to be Singaporean. #PinkDot happens this Saturday the 29th at Hong Lim Park. #loveislove#pridemonth2019
I’ve been island living lately, spending all my days on the beach or on a scooter exploring. Things that have happened since my last post: I got my scuba diving license in Koh Tao (yay!), saw my first fire show, got bitten by bed bugs on a ferry (not yay), petted A LOT of dogs, learned about BREATHARIANS (no food, no liquid, just sun rays diet - it’s a real thing) and swam in this natural infinity pool that overlooks the island of Koh Samui.
I’m sure a bunch of other funny things have happened, but time goes by so quickly when you have no concept of it.
Thank you Koh Tao & Koh Samui for the beautiful views, off to my next island 🌴
✌🏻 Peace out Oki! ✌🏻
It’s been an amazing 3 years on this beautiful island, but it’s time to move onto the next adventure! I remember showing up in 2016 and crying saying I hated Oki and wanted to come home.🤦🏻♀️😂
Now 3 years later, I’m shedding tears leaving 😭 I’m a completely different person and have loved my time spent in Asia. My friends, mentors, and coworkers have helped mold me into a better version of myself and I wouldn’t change a single thing over the last several years.
I’m ready for my next chapter , but not entirely sure I’m ready to leave this part behind. It’s bittersweet to be leaving, but it’s not goodbye...just see ya later! I love you Oki family! ❤️

We went to an orphanage on Saturday in a near by town and made bracelets. One of the workers there held the end of my bracelet as I worked on it. I asked her about her life. Her husband separated from her and kept the kids. She was 27 and had an 11 year old and a 9 year old. She won’t see her kids for another 6 months and the separation had left her heartbroken. After I finished the bracelet I tied it around her wrist. She took off her bracelet saying “amigos por siempre” and put it on my wrist. It was a little thing, but little things make all the difference.
I met this kid at Yellowstone who was really into Pokemon. He was 11 years old and he told me they have now invented some 1000 Pokemon, and there’s even one that kinda looks like a bison. We spent a while discussing where in the park each one would live if they were real. That’s his biggest dream, he told me, for Pokemon to be real. I told him to dream bigger, kiddo. He told me I was cool. I can’t decide what shocked me the most - that they still air Pokemon, or that an 11 year old thinks I’m cool. Perhaps that I can still name the 3 evolutions of Squirtle. #yellowstone#nationalparks#adventuretravel

I dream of painting and then I paint my dream - Van Gogh ☾
If I could paint...this is exactly how it would look! Sitting here at this lake, we were just in awe of how surreal this looked...the perfect framing of the leaves, the vibrant emerald blue colors and the reflections were beyond perfect ☾
Have you been anywhere else that made you feel like you just got dropped into a painting? Need to visit more places like these! 😍

I dare you to find someone more excited to cross the Arctic Circle than me! 💫🌎 This very special invisible line goes around the northernmost part of the world ✨🌲 A place where the sun doesn’t set during Summer Solstice ☀️ And doesn’t rise during the Winter Solstice ❄️ Pretty cool, right?
Have you ever experienced a full 24 hours of sun or darkness? 🤷🏽♀️ Being in #Fairbanks during #MidnightSunSeason was awesome—I love the sunshine! That said it was tough to get into bed time mode 🛌😴 Who can relate?
