TRAVEL / Mount Cook

Would you believe that I was able to ride this small plane for 10 minutes? I wouldn't have gone near a  4D ride in Disneyland let alone an actual airplane but the nice Japanese lady tour guide encouraged me or should I say cajoled me relentlessly which have left me in so much pressure. It wasn't cheap too , you see but the view was worth it. I wasn't a fan of views and landscapes but seeing the pure virgin white snow of a mountain melting off with our own eyes or so it seemed.  It was magical. The plane ride wasn't too bad. It was serene and safe. Way way safer than our plane ride to LAX where we encountered a series of bumps for 5 minutes and that , for me, was doom. I had to constantly reject the idea that my idol ,Grace Coddington , had once been in an accident on the same sort of plane. Mount Cook was lovely . To my surprise , I was asking for more to the pilot.


TRAVEL / 30,000 steps

When we travelled to Tokyo , I appreciated the importance of a comfortable walking shoes. For me , comfy shoes have always been the opposite of greatness. I mean for me shoes should be more is more. I may dress simply but the shoes shall do the talking. Most especially when I travel, I see to it that I bring my favourites. My ACNE spin wedges may be one of them but now I realize some shoes may not supposed to be for walking . Because when we do walking , we mean 20,000 steps and more. We love walking when we travel too so imagine my disappointment when I started going numb and hurt from my wedges while in Shibuya. Plus the fact that I was terribly worried that the leather sole will be trashed too.  Not wanting to commit the same mistake, I brought my comfy brogues from Jacquemus. They still look 'different' yet they can be a companion for a full day walkathon. Although I did brought a Rick Owens wedge boots for Lady Gaga's concert. Someday they'll be able to make a high heel to flat transformer shoes. It's not rocket science but I wish designers will make it right and ASAP.
