Let’s eat at Ops!

Ops! is a restaurant that serves a variety of delectable vegan food. The way it functions is that you choose what you want to eat, and have it weighed and that’ll be how much you pay.

Cart and I have been here for at least 3 times already and this time round, we were here with our friends, Mdm Huang, Eu Chai, Sindy and Dario.

In this videoblog, I learnt that it’s kind of hard trying to take footage when all you you want to do is eat and chat so much with your friends.

Unforgettable anomaly for Via Noir at Rome, Italy

It didn’t seem too long ago that we did the Via Lux anomaly and now Via Noir has arrived and it was held in Rome!

This anomaly is especially memorable to me because it was held in my adopted home, conducted at nightfall (hence the “Noir“) and I was the lone scooter team going around the circumference of the playing area.

Thank you to all the organisers for your sacrifices! Thank you to all agents who came to fight for Rome! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

 

Ole Ole Temasya Season 2 is out!

If you remember, in February this year, Cart and I went to Viareggio to help out for a television travel series which for this episode, features the colourful and amazing, papier mache float parade which is said to be the biggest in Europe, and probably in the world!

At long last, the episode for Ole Ole Temasya is out and is ready for viewing online. Yay! Are you ready for it? You could watch it online here at this link.

Ole Ole Temasya Season 2 Viareggio, Italy

It’s funny to see myself next to the hosts Mas and Seri – they are so gregarious and I’m so shy. But it was an experience that I’d never forget and I feel blessed to have gone through all what I had behind the scenes.

Thank you so much for the amazing journey, Dzul, Remi and Jules 🙂

 

Let’s go to Outdoor Festival!

Outdoor Festival is a kind of street art exhibition that’s held during the month of October for this year. Apparently it has been going on for 7 seasons. But if it weren’t for the feed in Instagram, I think I wouldn’t even know that it existed.

Even though, many of the exhibitions I didn’t understand, I enjoyed myself and had a fantastic time there and am looking forward to the next one 🙂

Sidenote : If you’re in Singapore, don’t forget to tune in this Thursday to Suria at 8.30pm to watch Ole Ole Temasya! Yup, the episode in Italy is finally out!

Let’s eat at Ostia Che Pizza!

Ostia Che Pizza is a place I found thanks to Happy Cow. The name is quite cute, because it’s a play on words. Che Pizza could either mean, “Wow, what a pizza!” or “What a bore!”

It’s not a Vegan restaurant, but so vegan friendly that I was amazed by the amount of choices that I had. I wanted to try everything! So it’s a good excuse to go there again.

The place seemed popular and got quite crowded when we reached there at 8.30pm and here is a video of my meal there.

Trip to Cologne, Germany for the Via Lux Anomaly

Cart and I went to Cologne, Germany over the weekend for the Via Lux Anomaly. I had a very lovely time, and all of the locals that I’ve met there are so jawdroppingly friendly and helpful that it had left such an impression on me.

I do wish that we had more time to experience this amazing city in more depth. And I hope that we visit again!

A trip to Ostia Antica

If you were ever in Rome, I’d recommend you to visit Ostia Antica. This heritage site used to be the remains of an ancient Roman harbour city. So it’s nice to roam around and imagine what life was like back then.

You’d probably seen Ostia Antica in postcards, with these distinctive stone footpath. Careful though, after many years and steps, these stones are now rather smooth and slippery.

A group of friends and I went to Ostia Antica last Sunday, and here is a video blog!

Taking moving footage on Nexus 6P is quite challenging as it tends to turn out shaky. Luckily Youtube has a stabilising function … my neck did really strange things towards the end of the video though!

Day trip to Villalago

It’s been a while since I’ve done a videoblog, but I guess I’m a little inspired by the trip to Viareggio. Plus, I’ve got a spiffy new phone, which made me in the mood to try to experiment.

Cart and I did a day trip to Villalago, which is a charming small town in Abruzzo. There is the lake Scanno nearby which is huge and beautiful and just breathtaking when you look at it with the surrounding mountains.

I didn’t want to leave.

Yes, it’s a long video at 20 minutes. You could watch it while having lunch or leave it in the background while washing the dishes. I could even do a mukbang in the future 😛
