Discovering Asia pt. 2

It is officially time for continuous assessment number two, let me show you some of the coolest places I have seen so far, welcome to yet another edition of taking Asia...

Every girl dreams about getting enormous amounts of flowers, once we get them, we wish they could last forever, luckily I discovered ones that do. Mixed with the scene of a museum (that coincidentally has also a shopping center attached to it, which btw most buildings somehow seem to have), there was a field of LED roses you couldn't take your eyes off. Although the weather tends to hit the minus during this time of the year, especially at night, it was all worth it. You can tell, just by the happy sparkle I developed in my eyes.

Asia, continent of magical things, and even more creative approaches to creating the most dream-like cafe sets. This time, it was about trains, cheesecakes and of course, the obligatory coffee you deserve after you spend the day uncovering the secrets of the city. 

Friends did warn me that it is tech heaven, but the Samsung center proved it to be even grander than originally expected. Haven't you always dreamed about being able to test the newest technological advancements hands-on? I fulfilled my childhood dream as soon as the lovely lady at the entrance put the sensor bracelet around my wrist. From getting to know your creative and character strengths to Pig Ride (you read right!), the VR game you can play right at the ground floor of the center, there is something for everyone. 

Immediately after Samsung, I fell for Art Box. The supplies and stationery store you don't want to leave. From house decoration, cleaning supplies, the cutest travel accessories, to the best prices ever encountered for stationery, it has everything and even more to it! As you can see I found myself a spirit animal, this little shark here, and even bought the little notebook with him on the cover! 

Cold weather, but looking at least a bit cute and put together, my famous sweater and shirt combo. This is me post-breakfast/brunch. Maybe you are wondering about the spatula, but don't worry, Japanese breakfast is also something for you, and easily found throughout the city!

A glimpse into my daily craziness at its best, this is all for today's travel insights, but before I go, let me leave you another conclusive tip:

@ Is The Birthplace Of Samsung......

Dinner time!

Milan is magical (I am talking about that part of the city that is still not plastered with exam sessions and Bocconi buildings), an all time favorite of mine is definitely the Brera design district, a part of the city that lets you truly live your Italian fairy tale the way you want to! When I get my cravings for meat, fresh bread and good wine, I hop to the Taverna del Borgo Antico and get me some! Since the weather has gotten colder it's the right time to pull out all of my favorite sweaters from the closet and bring the color into winter! What do you think about it? This bright yellow one is from Zara, and ofc, not to forget my vintage Alpaca coat and over-knee Aldo boots to finish up the look!

Song Of The Day

Elderbrook - Old Friends

Nights out and about

Another day, another year coming closer (bye, bye 2018). My last day in Milan of this year was exactly the 13th of December, and for almost two weeks now I have been enjoying downtime back home with the family and friends! After three months of not being back, my room sure does look bigger, my bed is even more comfortable and the Serbian snacks made my heart melt. When it comes to the one thing I missed most, the 50 kg Labrador sitting at the front door of my house, apparently the sentiment is mutual. 

This year has so far been the most adventurous one, more than 40 flights, more continents, and even more diverse cultures to discover. It has brought me a lot of memories, love and laughter, not to forget, lots of different food options. You remember the little bucket list I said I made when 2017 came to an end, well, 70% came true, and what hasn't happened yet will just push me to be better in 2019. It will be the year I move to yet another country, embark on another educational quest called masters and get one step closer to figuring out where I will want to live for a longer period of my life. 

Reminiscing about the important events of this year I made a small, yet big in meaning list about the happenings  that have further pushed me forward and brought joy into my daily routine. One of them was the time my best friend finally visited me in Milan. She, also a student abroad (just with a sea view, #Greece) took a couple of days and spent my exam-free days in shopping, laughter and well, over-the-top movie nights (pizza delivery included).

I wish you all a merry Christmas, as you know mine is on the 7th of January, but I do celebrate with my friends today as well.

Discovering Asia pt. 1

Before I start with the little quiz down there, let us take a look at some of the places I got to experience:

Welcome to Lotte World Halloween edition

Classical tourist experiences, apparently apparel & accessories of a boy band can be this popular. 

And yes, there was this little fella right there in the...

...The Raccoon cafe 

At Lotte World, Halloween, not so scary after all?

It was on a dull morning in September, rain pouring down, wind blowing heavily and yours truly exiting her apartment to go catch a plane... The question you all want to hear the answer to is of course where did I go, but instead of killing you with blunt details I will map you my way through Asia in pictures.

Instead of taking the direct Alitalia flights, I chose to fly as they call the Nordic route with Finnair, and not only did it result in great comfort, a lot of snack and drink options on board, but also in additional points that will soon be used for something special (anyone sensing another travel here or is it just me?).

After what seemed to be only 8 horror movies long of a flight, I finally got to experience it myself. Wild colors, lots of food options for every pocket size, an extremely nice hotel and the revelation that there pre-payment makes your life easier later at check-out. It's best to summarize my experiences through the little list I made on my way there, the list of questions I wanted to find the answer to, so let us turn this into a quiz, do you know which country I'm talking about?

1) Is everyone really dressed like in those TV shows?

And the answer soon came to me 20 minutes after landing, all around me polished women, wearing ballerinas, leather flats or nicely decorated shoes that matched the colors of their elaborate coats. Hair nicely styled, small cross-body bag across and she was ready to go.

2)Is BBQ there as good as the legend says?

After discovering one of the best  places in town (coming at you in pt. 2), I discovered it is not just a limited offer of one sort of meat, no there is a wide variety of partner menus and even larger ones to choose from, the grill is right there, the sides are included and on my hunt for a truly local experience I have tried their favorite alcoholic drink, not such a bad idea after all.

3) Is metro a trend?

It definitely was for me, given the complicated situation with taxis, I would not suggest you to even waste time on trying to get one, just invest in a T-money card, and hop into a metro line of your choice. Low fairs and great comfort, but do make sure to scan it every time you enter or exit the metro. It doesn't shake you like the Milanese one, but it does take time to get from one part of the city to the other, so plan your time accordingly.

4) How tall is a tall building?

Let me tell you, although some would now suggest I mostly couldn't see anything because of smog or other disrupting factors, it was in fact a clear night when I went up the radio tower (and there was also a restaurant to enjoy on top). Taking a walk along the tall buildings of both financial and telecommunication districts made me feel so liberated and calm that I can not even express my gratitude for those moments enough.

5) Is there fruit?

There is, but a limited amount. When you find it it is pre-packed, not to forget it could be a gamble with its taste. So be sure to pack those Vitamine Cs, Bs, and Ds, to keep up your actual daily amount for the time being there.

Can you guess now where I've been to? What I've been doing cuz more is to come, part II is already on its way.

Prints and more

Have you been around Instagram lately? Did you see all those wild animals running around the pictures of influencers? Pardon me, it turns out it is the influencers themselves that have dived into  colorful (jungle like) attire. The animal print trend has taken us by storm, either your boots, dress or handbag carry it. Seemingly enough to leave a lasting appearance!

On my journey through Asia I have discovered certain style aspects I would like to incorporate into my daily outfit choices. One of them is the effortless chic of mixing and matching prints whilst keeping the colors still within the same palette. Although the mission impossible theme music is about to start playing as a side effect of my word choice, it is after all possible to achieve. I found it fun to play around and even made bold purchases while there!

A few nights ago, one of the rare occasions we took to go to movies (A star is born btw: you should. Just saying in case you had any doubts left) and enjoy a few cocktails was exactly when I decided to try out my newest purchases, straight to you from Asia, now available in Milan, Aleksandra in the natural habitat. Turning a cold night into something fun and less depressing than the rain and ponds coriginated by it.
