The Couple’s life – TRAVEL, explore/house/videos and more

This space is created in 2016 to act as a diary for us. So we will be able to remember everything that we’ve done before. Usually the series feature where we go, what we do and eat and what I wear aka as my ootd.

The original intention for this, is to make my blog less boring, but now it has become something that our readers are interested in. Hence I decided to transfer all these into a individual page so that you guys can access them more easily! 

There are many things that we’ve done over the years but that’s before we got back together hence I will only add in things that we’ve done together from the date that we are married, which is 12 October 2015. ^^ 

I hope this space can inspire couples to keep having fun, to keep exploring and to keep loving each other and life. The sparks will die if you don’t work on it so please don’t be lazy! Let’s create new memories!
