    Kippy Thanks for the vote of confidence. I'm going to do my Lasik (if I'm tested to be ok) in June. Can't wait.

    Hong Kong: Where to Shop?

    Sheron Haa.. not really. Actually HK is my second love, after Paris. I love to shop in Paris. Everything is so cool. I've not been to London. Going this year. But still, HK is near, and the weather is good too (in Winter).

    Paris for honeymoon

    Paris ... my new love. I went there two years ago, and last June, as part of my honeymoon. SO said that Rome is more beautiful than Paris. That I have to agree. But Paris is equally great. Service is great, people are friendly, and there is so much to buy! When I went there, I didn't encounter...

    Hong Kong: Where to Shop?

    Sheron Envy you. I've been to HK numerous times and I love that place. The world is so huge that I have literally no time to go back to HK at all. Even though I love it there. Actually I only love HK after the second or third trip there. Times Square: I don't agree that all the brands...

    Adelaide

    Oooh all these talk is making me miss Adelaide lots! You made a good choice, Fuschia for choosing Adelaide. It's a beautiful city, filled with lots of beautiful parks! I am going to add in my vote for Hahndorf! Must go! I went to Adelaide twice and never encountered any transport problems...

    Italy - Rome, Venice & Florence

    Chloe Actually 12 days for 3 cities is enough, if you're only planning to go to the touristy places. Frankly, Rome has so much to see and do that two weeks is also not enough. Then again, who wants to stay in Rome for 2 weeks?! Not me! But it's a beautiful place full of history if you're into...

    Italy - Rome, Venice & Florence

    Chloe I did stay in one city at one time. For example, I went to Venice, then I took boats out to Murano and Burano for day trips. After that, I took a train to Florence. While in Florence, I went over to Sienna and Pisa as day trips. If you're staying in just one major city, I don't really...

    Italy - Rome, Venice & Florence

    Cawaii Did you hear? The summer in Europe in 2003 was the hottest since 500 years ago! But that's 2003. Let's hope it's cooler this year. But it was really hot when I went last year. Cat I think there's really no harm in picking up some Italian? Italian is very easy to learn. Unlike French...

    Italy - Rome, Venice & Florence

    Curly The skeleton church you're refering to is in Rome? If it is, it's called the Santa Maria della Concezione (Crypt of the Capuchins). It's at Via San Basilio. The walls are decorated with skeletons. Very lovely. Too bad we can't take photos. Though you can buy postcards as donations since...

    Planning a trip to london, Paris, Switzerland, Amsterdam.

    IT's so difficult, actually to find a good and cheap place to stay in London. The best I've found with an adjoining bathroom is like 45 pounds, which comes up to about S$150!! Just for a night!

    Mattress

    About Ikea. Actually the measurements is correct, based on local dimensions. Dimensions from overseas may be different. So if you buy any bed from any local store, the dimension of the Queen mattress should be 60 inches by 80 inches which is the same as the Ikea Queen.

    Planning a trip to london, Paris, Switzerland, Amsterdam.

    About LV .. I don't think the difference in price is much different from Singapore now. Yes, the bigger items are going to be cheaper, but with the very strong euro, it's only going to be S$100++ cheaper. Still, if you're going to Paris, and don't mind the waiting time (average 45 minutes), then...

    Actually I've checked the dimensions of Ikea mattresses. It's the same as other mattreses found outside. Am I missing something?
