Prague is an old city straight out of a fairy tale -- with small cobbled alleyways, quaint houses with cobbled roofs and four-framed window panes, a large Gothic church towering over a large market square, an old astronomical clock that dates back to the 15th century, and a pastry that has a long tradition and looks like a hollowed-out log, hence its name, trdelník....
Winter is here in Berlin. I just came out from an 8-hour AM shift and I am so happy to see the sun shining. Never mind that it is 4 degrees. It is a luxury! Caught this view on my walk home. Christmas Markets are alreads sprouting like mushrooms all over Berlin, and Germany or … Continue reading Christmas is Coming
It's life. You are supposed to find any mundane hint that it could still be amazing no matter how it sucks. To notice a slight hint of color in spite of it being gray.
I am back again after months of hiatus and I hope I will be back again for good. I have so many things I wanted to share and better opted not to because 1) I feel tired most of the time, that 2) I simply feel dumb for words to express things and whatnots, which … Continue reading When Autumn Fell
This will just be a short post (though I don't really write long posts). I just want to share photos of my Spring experience (but really, they're mostly of Sakura) in Berlin.

And … Continue reading The Paris I Visited

What could be better than celebrating the day of love in the city of love itself? Just kidding. I know there are a lot of things better. But it was our first time and we were all feeling touristy. Who cares? It was also our anniversary. Though we wanted to make it more intimate, just … Continue reading Lovers in Paris
When I told my patient I was going to Brussels during my Urlaub (Vacation Leave), she asked me why in so outrageous a manner that for a second, I thought she might have a heart attack. Yes, she was overreacting. She said why Brussels when there are more interesting places in Europe that I have to … Continue reading A Day in Brussels
Buildings and malls surround it. Tram lines, buses and trains circuit through it. Located in the middle of the middle (Mitte) of Berlin, this is considered the busiest part of the city. Last month it was just covered with stalls of the Christmas Market, and everyday it is covered with people going on with their … Continue reading Alexanderplatz
