My most amazing travel experience is probably the short trip that I had in Bali on March this year, right after my birthday. It was amazing because Bali gave me peace, just what I needed during that time. I was so stressed out at work and I needed to escape from the concrete jungle, from the busy and sunny Singapore. I’ve chosen Bali because it’s one of the nearest countries to Singapore,… Read More
