Apple Chronicles: New York City

I first grew aware of New York City when I was little, when I saw a poster of the city with its towering skyscrapers. Since then, I’ve always been fascinated by this city and dreamt of being there. Now, decades later, I’m finally realizing that dream! Hello, NYC!

Apple Chronicles: Hello Again, San Francisco!

As I only have one free day in California, I decided to spend it in one of my favorite cities in the world: San Francisco.  It’s been more than three and a half years since I’ve last been here and I still have some unfinished business to settle.

Apple Chronicles: California-Bound

After spending the week, it’s time to move onto my next business destination, California.  This would be my first domestic flight in a foreign country in over eight years!  It’s a lot less glamorous though than my earlier flights as I went on economy class. This is part of a series ① ② ③ ④…

Apple Chronicles: Taoyuan International and EVA Air Infinity Lounge

I arrived in Taipei with seven hours to spare.  Realistically, it’s too short to really do much in the city, but it’s ridiculously long to spend inside an airport!  Good thing that Taoyuan International Airport (桃園國際機場) is huge and should be able to keep me entertained. This is part of a series ① ② ③ ④ ⑤…

Apple Chronicles: A Journey of Superlatives

November is a special month for me as I was born on this month.  But this year, November had been extra kind to me as I embarked on a practically month-long trip on the other side of the world.  And everything about it was unexpected. This is part of a series ① ② ③ ④ ⑤…
