There are many people riding the Singapore MRT everyday. After almost a year living in Singapore, I meet many different types of people every time I step through the sliding doors. These are 10 types of people that I regularly find while riding the MRT.

A little update from my #NoteToSelf project.
It's been more than a year since I started this happiness project and I failed to make 100 posts as I initiated to last year. The number stuck at 28. Let's admit it, it is hard to create a good habit.

When I was still living in Indonesia, I usually celebrate Chinese New Year with my family, eating nian gao and collecting red packets from the elderly. Now that I live in Singapore, I got to experience new rituals and traditions to commemorate Chinese New Year this year.

If you're following me on Tumblr [carolynnyoe.tumblr.com], you might noticed that I convert my Tumblr account into a display page of my Doodle Book, a one-doodle-a-day project that I started since November 2016. I am pushing myself to bust out at least one page every single day, no matter what. Why? Because it's fun and very addicting. It's all thanks to Pilot Juice Paint, the markers ( or pens?) that I use to create those random and quirky doodles.

After the total of five days spent travelling in Shanghai and Jeju, it was finally time to go home. Since we booked an evening flight, we managed to spend the tag end of our last day shopping in LOTTE Mart and E-MART.

My fourth day in Jeju Island was Christmas day. I spent that day by making handmade soap in Innisfree Jeju House as well as visiting its green tea plantation. I also visited Love Land, a sexual theme sculpture park that you don't want to visit with your parents—unless your family is cool enough not to feel awkward to watch adult content with.

Jeju Christmas Trip 2016 Day 3: Seongsan Ilchulbong, Manjanggul Cave, Eorimok Square & Teseum Safari
As South Korea's most visited sight, Jeju Island is the only place in the world that has won the so many world titles from UNESCO. Jeju Island is famous for their natural beauty like beaches, waterfalls, mountains, and heritage sites. I spent my third day by visiting some amazing nature sites in Jeju and it was also my first time to see snow and to build my very first mini snowman.

If you're into Korean drama, you may already know that Jeju Island is a popular filming location that's famous for its beautiful nature and romantic atmosphere. On my second day of Jeju trip, I visited Jeju Folk Village that restores many of the scenes from episodes of Dae Jang Geum, also known as Jewel in the Palace, one of some famous Korean television series that took place in Jeju Island.

South Korea has been on the list of countries I wish to visit since a long time ago and Jeju Island is definitely the best part of it. Spending Christmas by travelling to Jeju Island is one of the best trip I've ever had.

I know that sometimes air travels can be very stressful, especially long distance flights that require connecting flights and transits. Any of these unwanted situations could happen: unforeseen long delays, cancellation, missing flight, mishandled baggage... just to name a few. Well, in my recent Christmas trip, I almost had them all in one go!

“New year, new me!” ~Everyone. Well, almost.
Here it comes that time of the year again when everybody throws away their old calendar and flips a brand new page. Today maybe just another Sunday, but it gives most people a sense of new vibe and spirit to begin their day. Well, I think we can all just admit that New Year is the right time to refresh everything and start again to focus on one thing: TO BE BETTER.
