Camped at Hong Kong Airport cos I missed my flight. And now, I'm just about to touch down Singapore. With that, the trip has come to an end officially😌

23 August 2016

WOOOHOOOO managed to change my middle seat to an aisle seat and I get extra legroom space? But shit, I was damn suaku. I came in, put down my bags, and started looking around like WTF IS MY ENTERTAINMENT LOL WHY I DONT HAVE ENTERTAINMENT WHAT IS GOING ON?!?! So I just stared around tryna figure out how shitty my seat was and I wanted my old seat back like I NEED TO BE ENTERTAINED BY MOVIES AND STUFFS. Then i just went to find the air steward and went like, "sorry but I think there's some mistake with my seat like where is my entertainment?!?!" And then he's like "oh dont worry all seats have entertainment" and he proceeded to bend down and pull out the STOWED SCREEN LIKE WHEW and I was like "oh wow thanks?" And I felt damn suaku I mean like I was sure I saw people staring at my confused face when I saw my seat🌚🌚🌚

Squirrel spotted outside our lodge!
Dinner - Yoghurt Parfait. Because #nomoney #savemoney #cheapestoptionthoughalsonotcheap
Took a nice walk along the horseshoe lake! So prettyyyy and the beautiful skies really helped😜 according to the Alaskans, today is the best day thus far in summer😱 are we lucky or what?
Can you spot the beaver friend😂 it was busy dragging twigs and wood to build its den!
They decided to become Alaskan boys/ One Direction🌚
Lunch at Denali Village. Elame and I shared a salmon chowder + buffalo wings. Tad pricey (cos there's not much choices when you're trapped in Denali) but tastes yums
Our accommodation for Denali - pretty Denali Village Lodge! Because we booked too late we didn't get to choose cheaper locations🌚
Scenic drive towards Denali National Park
Coach from Anchorage to Denali - a 5 hour ride lets go!
Hot chocolate on a cold day
Hot chocolate with brookie from steamdot! We quickly grabbed breakfast before heading onto the motorcoach to Denali. I've always wanted to try brookie cos of Harry from Australia Masterchef 2016 where he made brookies for supper and won the chance for immunity🌚 and this brookie is so good, probably Harry's was better? BUT STILL i have a feeling I'll want to make a brookie when I get home...and as Tengy described, this brookie is a one-way ticket to sore throat but well worth it😂😂😂

16 August 2016

Typical chinese takeaway - shared a shrimp fried rice with elame thank god we shared the rice was too crazily packed into this "small" takeaway box🌚 hate to admit it but the fried rice is good though HAHAHHA. And comes with fortune cookie its time for TOTO
Beautiful sunset awaiting us as we stepped foot onto Anchorage:)
Wooohooo pretty clouds on our way to Anchorage now!

Beautiful skies today. Though it rained slightly in the morning, the rest of the day was sunny with fluffy clouds!
Lunch at Alaskan Fish and Chips Co.! Elame and I shared a small salmon chowder bread bowl and halibut+cod fish tacos. Yummy yum!
And we decided to spend the day exploring downtown Juneau. Walked into a fudge store and bought like nut chocolates😂😂😂 the chocolates are named after animal paws
Hiking the trail along the Gold Creek Flume! The journey was unexpectedly treacherous and we got our shoes "hydropumped" when we tried to cross a river😂😂😂 just to get a good view of Mount Juneau

15 August 2016

So we made campbell soup for dinner and I bought a salad mix off the salad bar at the supermarket outside our accomm. Much needed vegetables man.
Wefie in front of Mendenhall Glacier!
Macs for lunch. AGAIN. Sick of macs liao😭
The bears decided to cross the road. Cant believe we saw them again!😍😍😍
Walked in the rain this morning to Mendenhall Glacier. It was all worth it because we were rewarded with SO MANY INTERESTING SIGHTS! First up we have fresh sashimi..oh no I meant wild salmon🌚 trying to swim against the currents from the stream back to their tributaries to finish off their life cycle! This is environmental studies coming to life man.
Oh gosh such a fat birdie
