Choosing the right venue for a wedding banquet is a longgggg gruelling process and these days, the venues are booked up even 1 year in advance. With the numerous hotels and restaurants available, where does one even start to search?
Good food is an important criteria as the older folks tend to be quite particular about it since they would have attended 9572947 number of wedding banquets throughout their entire life.
We were actually already enquiring with the Fullerton on their availability and they informed us that they would be having a wedding roadshow with extra offers, so we jumped on that and purchased our package at the wedding roadshow.
We were also delighted to know that the Fullerton ballroom underwent renovations at the end of 2016 / beginning of 2017. The ceiling is now entirely filled with chandelier lights. Would you just look at this grandeur !

I’ve always remembered reading about the dead sea as a kid and was intrigued at how people could possibly float in such a salt lake. To finally get the chance to experience floating in the waters of the dead sea for real is just mind blowing!
Some of my my friends asked me “Has anyone drowned in the dead sea before?”. Well, I tried very hard to sink myself in the dead sea, but i kept bobbing back up. I’d say yes, it’s impossible to sink, not drown. Because technically, if you float with your face down, you will drown lol!
I literally couldn’t find any sand at the bottom of the sea. Everything that I scooped up was salt. Mega cool!!!
A rather sad piece of information is that the waters are receding by a meter each year and by 2050 it will be completely extinct 😦
The dead sea borders Jordan to the east and Israel to the west and you can visit from both countries. I visited the dead sea from Israel and here’s some tips on how you can enjoy the dead sea like a pro with 1 night:

The South Wadi Araba crossing aka the Yitzhak Rabin border terminal is one of 3 border crossings between Israel and Jordan and it is located at the southern tip of Israel. It is a great choice for tourists looking to tour Petra and Wadi Rum, as the south Wadi Araba crossing is the closest border crossing to these 2 attractions.
However, the complexity of crossing the South Wadi Araba border has thrown many tourists off planning free and easy trips to Jordan. Much of the complexity comes from the Jordanian customs due to the different fees and procedures. Many tourists opt for Jordan tours that are from Israel and they assist you to cross the border, but if you are able to cross the border on your own and tour Jordan free and easy, you will be able to save quite a fair bit of tour money.
Here is a quick guide on what you will need to do, what documents to keep and how much money you will need for crossing the south Wadi Araba crossing. (Note that this guide excludes visa applications)

I will have to say that Tyrell and I took a leap of faith signing up for a pre-wedding photoshoot package with a foreign company, without knowing much about the detailed process, nor meeting any representatives face to face. All communication was done via email only. We weren’t able to find any blog posts or information online about the actual process, but we jumped into it, which is not something we usually do. All I can say is that we have good faith in Korean studios XD
Here’s what you need to know and what it’s like to fly overseas and have a pre-wedding photoshoot with local Korean photo Studio, Studio Bong.

Searching for a wedding photography package can be a rather grueling one. First of all, you need to decide on the country; should you take it locally or overseas? If overseas, which country? Should you fly a photographer overseas or engage a local? And then you need to know what to look out for when negotiating the package.
I think I’m going to get a lot of hate from the agents, but ah well, here goes. Here’s what nobody tells you about how to book a Korean wedding photography package in Korea.

I would consider myself to be quite fortunate to have witnessed the northern lights 4 nights out of 13 nights in scandanivia; once in Rovaniemi, Levi, Tromso and lofoten each.
Here’s what I learnt during my trip that NONE of my research prior to my trip ever told me. The blatant truth about hunting for the northern lights:

Busan, Korea’s second largest city, is a port city on the south eastern tip of the Korean peninsula. Just less than 3hrs away via the KTX from Seoul, Busan is a great addition to a holiday in Korea on top of Seoul.

I’ve always wanted to see how it would be like to have my hair done in Korea. Korean girls always seem to have such healthy luscious bouncy locks that I’m so envious of.
After contemplating between Juno and Cecica hair salons, I decided to give Cecica a go because Juno is rather pricey.

A trip to Lapland will never be complete without a dog sledding experience in the snowy forests.
There are many types of dog sledding available in Tromso. You can choose between shorter 1km rides or safaris of 1hr and above. You may get to try “driving” (aka mushing) the sled on your own too.
There are also dog sledding safaris at night that hunt for the northern lights!
The company that I went with is called Northern Light Dog Adventure. It’s a family owned company with over 30 huskies. They are located 1hr from Tromso.
Their tours are in small groups of 2-8; everyone can get the most out of the adventure.
