Alcove Arrangement

Can’t believe it’s already past mid-November! Upon my return to work after my Guam trip, I had to deal with some stressful situations that took up a lot of my energy. I was so drained that I spent Veterans Day Weekend, a three-day weekend, in my bedroom, doing nothing but playing video games. Thankfully, things have got better at work and that weekend of nothing healed me. With me spending my free time in my bedroom, I figured it’d make sense to show you all my new bedroom. It’s smaller than my previous bedroom, but it’s cosier than my old one, and the fact that my computer is no longer in a separate room makes things easier. Enjoy my room tour!

Aigoo Adventures: Guam 2017

Aigoo Adventures

Well, I’m back from visiting my best friend of 26 years in Guam! This was my second time visiting Guam, the first being back in 2004. With a more mature mindset, I was able to appreciate Guam this time, and I enjoyed every single minute with my bestie. Unfortunately, tropical Guam decided to give me rain every single day of my trip, and Typhoon Lan also started nearby, and it gave me an idea of what a true tropical storm/typhoon felt like! Weather aside, I had a wonderful time with my bestie, where we both ate fantastic food, went on a super shopping spree, and relaxed with a fabulous facial!

It’s September! Holy cow. Last I checked, I was suffering from the humidity in July, and then I was swamped with work in August . . . it’s really amazing how fast time go by as we get older. Now, I hope time will slow down a bit for the next six months because it’s time for all the US holidays to start! I’ve been waiting for this. I get a four-day weekend for Labour Day, and then another long weekend in October along with my ten-days vacation, and in November . . . yes. I’m ready for the days off! In the meantime, check out what I’ve been up to for the last two months, which involved eating a lot of good food, going on a de-cluttering spree, finding old money, and buying a new tech gadget.

Aigoo Adventures: Kyushu 2017

Aigoo Adventures

Last month, over Memorial Day weekend, I travelled back to Japan to visit Fukuoka and Karatsu! I chose to visit there mostly because I wanted to see Karatsu Castle, which was featured in Yuri!!! On Ice as Hasetsu Castle. With Karatsu being an hour away from Fukuoka by train, I decided that it made sense to fly into Fukuoka and find accommodation, and then just do a quick day trip to Karatsu and still have a bit of time to check out Fukuoka. Plus, the plane ticket was so cheap ($157 roundtrip with Jeju Air!), and so off I went on a short weekend trip to Kyushu, the southernmost island of mainland Japan. Enjoy this post about my trip, and keep an eye out for my next travel post in July, for I am making my way to Busan!

From a tech gadget to Japanese and French beauty products to Japanese snacks to Japanese airline, this list just exploded. Do check out the things I have been loving! Let me know if you’ve tried any of my favourites. My next post will be about my Fukuoka trip. But first, my favourites!
