Time flies so fast! It seems like last week when October started. In less than 24 hours from now, another month is about to come! And hey, happy Halloween everyone! Enjoy but be safe please!

First of all, I want to express my gratitude from UP above for making me well and healthy from time to time. I have never been in my deepest moment in my life when I was confined for 25 days at the hospital. Thanks God, I am recovering now. I continue to hope and pray for full healing and recovery.

I had a doctor’s appointment in Regensburg  last week. I have to wake-up early to catch the train, making it sure that I won’t be late. It was a cold winter morning. I still have to drive to the train station for around 15 minutes. I thought I will be late because the road was quite slippery and driving faster is quite not possible. I was thankful that I made it on time, bought my ticket and still have enough time to catch the train.

After my doctor’s appointment, I decided to stop-by at the mall. The Arcaden mall is just some minutes walk from my doctor’s clinic. Since it is almost lunch time, I decided to take a lunch first at the sushi bar in the mall.  I ordered a Bento Lachs which really taste so good.  Read more… »

I was wondering if summer sale in Germany is still not over. I know the month of August is over now in some parts of the globe especially in Asia. I still have almost an hour to savour the moment here in Europe and I will finally say goodbye to my most favorite month. I am gladly welcoming the first BER month of September. How about you?

Summer sale is still going on in Germany and most parts of Europe. This is one of the best times of the year to shop especially for women’s apparel from clothing, shoes, accessories and more. Last month, I went shopping at the mall in Regensburg, Germany. It was indeed a perfect timing because summer sale just started.

Various flags of different nations were hanging because the FIFA Championship was going on that time. Congrats to Germany’s Football Team for winning the game.

The mall called Donau Einkaufszentrum, literally translated as Danube Shopping Center is almost an hour drive. There are a lot  of stores and establishments inside. I was with friends last time and we just decided to go their spontaneously. One decided drive there, so we ended up gallivanting and window shopping at the mall. Read more… »

I am trying to remember some trips I did last 2013. I have a lot to share visiting 23 European countries last year but my time is always limited. I am such a very busy person and never gets bored when I am at home. 2013 was so far the most-travelled year I experienced in my life. I might not be able to do it again this year but for sure, I will be travelling again soon.

Buildings and shops  near the Town Hall of Maribor.

Maribor is one of the cities I visited in Europe last spring  2013. It is the second largest city in Slovenia. It is located near the Slovenian border with Austria, beside the Drava River. We had a limited time during our visit but I made the most of it seeing some of its sights. Read more… »

DE.Leipzig.DSC_2998 Happy new year 2014 once again! I hope I can share more travel experiences this year. I will try my best to be more diligent so that I can continue to get you posted with my previous travels. I have a lot to share but  sometimes, time is just limited.

Let me continue with my topic here. I believed you already know about Germany’s city with the most shopping arcades. It is stated in my post title and yes, it is Leipzig. This historic city is located in the federal state of Saxony, Germany, around 150 kilometres (93 miles) south of Berlin. Read more… »

If you’re heading to the Big Apple there’s bound to be plenty on your to-do list. From Central Park to the Statue of Liberty and the Empire State building, New York is renowned for a number of fantastic attractions, yet more and more people descent on the world’s most famous with another purpose in mind – shopping! New York certainly isn’t short of retail outlets to challenge your bank balance, so check out our guide to some of the city’s best shopping venues.

Times Square

The big screen, the decorations, the huge crowds… we’ve all seen Times Square in the movies and serious shoppers should definitely make it their first stop for a spot of retail therapy. Fashionistas can splash their cash at the likes of Forever 21, American Eagle and Levi’s while beauty addicts should head to MAC, Bare Escentuals, Sephora and L’Occitane. There’s also a great selection of speciality shops including the Disney Store, M&M’s World and Hello Kitty’s Sanrio Store – perfect for picking up gifts and souvenirs!


This is what my friend mentioned to me. She  also went to Andorra some weeks ago and she told me that she loves the city especially with the things they offer to guests and tourists. One of  it is shopping.  I can say, Andorra is truly a shopping paradise for shopaholics! Due to its duty-free status, it attracts millions of tourists every year.
