Off to Asia tomorrow!

I can’t believe by this time tomorrow, I will be on a flight to Taipei. By myself. Holy crap. Is this really happening? Yup. So excited. Can’t hardly wait.

But it’s funny (well, not really) because this almost didn’t happen. Long story short, I had to rebook my flight last minute yesterday. I was on the phone with Expedia who, might I add, were very accommodating but in the end, they couldn’t do much to help me except cancel my original flight. Basically, the there was a small typo on my ticket which I thought would be no problem to fix. But no, it was apparently a big deal with Japan Airlines and they would not amend my name on the ticket. Fuckers! So pretty much, I had to scramble and get my shit together and find a new flight and pay a $200 cancellation fee. LUCKILY (and I seriously emphasize luckily), I was able to find a cheap flight via Delta Air that was actually $60 cheaper than my initial purchase. So, I basically just had to fork out $140 extra which isn’t bad. Thank god for Expedia was asking $1800… ha! Like I’m made out of money.

Anyways, since that is all out of the way, I am getting seriously excited for my next few weeks in Asia. I will be meeting my friends there and will have a few hours to myself to explore Japan when I get there.

Any recommendations? Just staying in Tokyo with no real itinerary.

Helloooooo vacation!!!

On another note, I have started a food blog (recipe-sharing blog to be specific), Umami & Me. Finally!

Remember me?

It’s been a while, blog. The main reason? Because I hate living in two places. Currently splitting my time between Burnaby and Richmond and all my necessities seem to be in my Burnaby house (laptop, textbooks, clothes). Yeah. Try living out of a bag 4-5 days out of the week. Not fun.

Other than that, I have been busy going to spa-ing it out in Whistler, entertaining out-of-town guests, writing confidentiality agreements, and building consistency. Not being vague at all. What I can reveal to you guys is that I am excitedly awaiting my trip to both Taiwan and Japan which occurs in 30 days!!! Wildly distracting — so much that I have hardly given thought to my birthday (3 weeks!) or my Halloween costume (4 weeks!!!). Serious business. Pretty much going into hiding until November. Really can’t afford to spend any penny anymore (I’ve been entertaining people since late August…broke now).

But I do have very exciting news to share with you all…. one day… when it’s the absolute right time. I don’t want to jinx this one. Crossing my fingers!

I love my new job.

I just got one question: who wants to go travelling avec moi!?
