The second encounter that I had in Lisbon was rather musical. A live performance at the historic São Jorge Castle… Every note from each strumming was bouncing on the stone wall and echoing in the courtyard.
Never had I thought my trip to Lisbon would become so many memorable encounters with people. My first encounter was, however, not so pleasant, it was with a pickpocket on the infamous tram#28.

Lately, the SG50 is celebrating the country’s independence (since the expulsion from Malaysia in on 7 August, 1965). Since then the two countries walked separated paths.

The stunning coastline and remarkable architecture amazed me when I first saw the photos in travel books as a 5-year-old kid. But of course, the harbor had dramatic changes since then – more and more skyscrapers were built along the coast to cope
Many places in the world are vanishing… due to pollution, depletion, deterioration or disasters. For me, I have kept a list of “10 Places to see before they are gone” in my computer drive – kind of a bucket list reminding me to visit these places before they are gone! Some places disappearance may not
The park is just getting more special – Yayoi Kusama is a world-recognized avant garde modern artist and her polka dots could be spotted and recognized by many many art-lovers in a heartbeat.
