    Lazada 11.11 Surprise Box 2018: Corlison – Essano

    It’s almost 11 November, which means that the 11.11 sales are about to begin! I had the luck to have the opportunity to review another Surprise Box for the Lazada 11.11 Mega Sale, which not only features 1111 Flash Sales (commenced on 1 November), but also boasts sales of up to 90% off.

We had to join a small queue when we arrived at 1pm, and queues to enter were even longer when we left the park at about 2.30pm. Luckily, the fields were large enough to comfortably accommodate people who’d set up picnic mats for lunch. So…

    Tokyo: Allergies, Yasukuni Shrine, Chiyoda Park

    My travel backlog is getting out of hand! This is my attempt to restart a documentation of my trip to Tokyo last March. I’d actually done up the photos for this post months ago, but accidentally deleted them thinking that I’d made a backup… I did not make a backup. Why do I always do this to myself. 😩 Anyway, this day in Tokyo was pretty memorable for me. I don’t often fall sick on vacation, but it just so happened that I’d gotten struck by something that led my allergies to go on overdrive, probably due to the turn down service at our new hotel the night prior.
