Have you tried Starbucks' drinks and snacks for this year's Halloween? I tried to stay away from it, thinking I could live a minimalist, zen life... but I succumbed to the sweet treats at the last minute...!
Auckland gives the vibes of a working city. When I was walking around the city centre, all I saw were stern-faced workers shuffling along the streets. And unlike most major cities, Auckland has yet to have a metro system (construction was underway and I read that it would be ready in a few years' time). Therefore, the best way to get around the city centre was on foot, and thankfully, most sights we're within reach.
If you are like me, Bangkok would be the last city you would want to go for a holiday, because its hot and humid weather meant wet and sticky clothes throughout the day. I went to Chatuchak once, and I told myself I would NEVER go to that place, because of the heat and because there was nothing interesting for me to shop and see anyway.
