Fashion: AQUATIC BLUE

Wearing bright color like this Aquatic blue top from Forever 21 is a perfect match for a last summer weekend getaway. I just love how its so calming in the eyes paired with Ripcurl boardshorts. Whatelese would match this look but to have a pair of Havaianas gray slippers. 

I did not accesorize so much for this look as I had a photo walk around this beautiful Agro Bintan Beach Resort in Bintan, Indonesia. But since I had my commitment to post fashion blog more often, I really made time to have this little fashion shoot even though there's nothing so particularly fashion forward about this look.

Depot Ayam Penyet

One of the most popular Indonesian dish to try will be Ayam Penyet and there's no other way to have the original taste of its one-of-a-kind cuisine by trying it out at Depot Ayam Penyet located in Bintan Island, Indonesia. It's always a good way to know the cultural background of the country of your visit by trying out their local food gastronomical dishes. 

Ayam Penyet is a chicken fried with locally infused Indonesian spices served with Asian rice, crunchy tofu and vegetable soup flavoured with locally grown vegetables. I did not search for its food history so I'm just describing it on how it tasted. So if you'll gonna visit Indonesia one of these days, this is one food list you shouldn't miss out.

BINTAN AGRO BEACH RESORT

I've been waiting for the right time to finally visit the Island of Bintan in Indonesia and I was totally amazed by it's beauty and the simplicity of the island life here. To experience this place was nothing better than to stay in one of Bintan's best beachfront resort located at Kepulauan Riau Indonesia. 

 You will always fall in love to another beautiful day on this island. Taking a dip / going for a swi, everyday in the crystal clear water has simply a way of clearing your mind from all the clutters of your busy life & perhaps cleansing your soul as well. Every moment and every second in this paradise will always be the best just by simply enjoying the gorgeous Indonesian sunset. 

We had our reservation here via Deal.com.sg where recently they had tour package promo via http://www.lokopoko.travel and total including hotel, ferry & land transfer with breakfast, lunch & dinner was aroung $99/pax but after including tax & other fees $169/pax.

This view will never get old. Wish I could stay here forever.

Fashion: AERO

Finally I got the chance to share fashion blog post after several unsuccessful photo shoot attempts. I've been planning of fashion outfit shoot at Henderson Waves or Mc Ritchie Reservoir & hopefully I can make it happen soon.

I just went for a beach weekend getaway in Bintan Island Indonesia and part of the tour package we got was a half day tour around the island including this Chinese Temple which was so picturesque enough to have my unplanned photo shoot. 

Thinking of wearing something comfy & stylish, I decided to wear a white Aeropostale shirt that will never go out of style. Recently in Singapore, I've noticed plenty style conscious wearing Aero shirts especially during sunny days. For me its the substitute for avant garde fashion brands like CK top or CDG shirts. The one I'm wearing was from a friend who recently visited NYC (sponsorship) LOL!

What else could go better with it than my all time fave sweat shorts I got from Forever 21, such a great steal esp I can wear it to any top but still doesn't compromise my style & comfort. I also got my new Nike SB online from www.zumeiz.com This Stefan Janoski limited edition tiger stripe sneakers is just to die for. I love it's simplicity & superb style that really fits my kind-of-style. 

Also wore my Casio silver watch & black leather bracelets I bought in Hongkong perfect for my usual black-white-gray kind of style. Just goo enough to have my Canon D700 DSLR to capture some scenic views of the island. Hope you like this post & so keep following my humble blog for more fashion insights & style ideas.

LESSON 101

Since I'm running out of blog post but still wants to post something worthy for my blog followers, here's my personal motivational write up way back in 2013 back then when I was still passionate enough to make my own 365 inspirational quotes written by yours truly. To draw out more ideas, I added some of my favourite nature photos I've taken to share it all with you guys. Hope you learn something from it.

"Dreams get you into the future and add excitement to the present".

We all have dreams to fulfill as we grow. Children love to dream about imaginary places and characters. Adults would also have lots of day dreaming activities at times. Dreams are vital to achieve fulfillment in life and to provide reasons for living to put life in this world. But the ultimate dream humankind can have is to be there in the eternal Kingdom in His soon coming.

TOP 10 MUST TRY IN ABU DHABI

During my recent vacation in Abu Dhabi,  I have been impressed by so much things to see and try in this remarkabale country. My impression of  this place was limited to desert sand, camels & people walking around in traditional Arabian attire only & it feels to be like the sandbox was such one boring place. But nothing could be further from the truth.
Abu Dhabi is still a gigantic metropolis with world-class attractions for the world to see. The best thing about them are their desert safari, water complex and theme park that amazed me until now. Taxis are cheap and plentiful and getting around is very easy.
So for all the aspiring tourists: Here’s my top 10 must try in Abu Dhabi. There's so more to visit, eat, experience & try but this top 10 are all my personal experiences oin Abu Dhabi that you shouldn't miss out. 
Sand Dune Bashing 

Book a desert safari drive with one of the many tour operators in UAE. This 4x4s is a powerful off road vehicle to let you experience a roller coaster ride for a more social extreme sport to try in Dubai.
