Copenhagen, Exchange

Final days in Copenhagen

Copenhagen is really such a wonderful place, I am wont to leave. But at least I feel that every single day I spend here has been fulfilling and meaningful, spending it exploring this beautiful city and hanging out with friends. When you ask someone on exchange what their biggest regret is, it is probably not spending enough time in their home city, or travelling too fast, too much at a fast pace.

I have probably explored more of Copenhagen this past few days, than I have been in the past few months – and I am not proud to admit that at all. I feel like Copenhagen is a city that you can’t just be a tourist in, you have to live in it, and live through it to really feel the city.

Finally managed to try out Grød (apparently, the most popular breakfast place in Copenhagen, but I didn’t really like it because I don’t fancy oats), ate at the Saturday food market at Kødbyen, checked out the Black Diamond, visited the Botanical Gardens, climbed up the Church of our Saviour Mary, explored Jægersbrogade (a hipster neighbourhood), paid the Ny Carlsberg Glypotek a visit and had many potluck dinners. I know I’m so going to miss this place when I leave 😦 #ineverwannaleave

Thankful that Yuxian came to visit, if not I might be too lazy to even head out and explore that much of Copenhagen!

Celebrating Chinese New Year Home away from Home

I’m not one to usually get homesick but being overseas during chinese new year means no reunion dinners, no dressing up, no eating of new year goodies. It’s not so bad till you see your newsfeed being flooded with new year pictures and family photos everyywhere and you’re just like naw shucks, i’m missing out on all the fun! Chinese New Year has never looked that enjoyable.

But we make the best of what we have and I met up with the Singaporeans yesterday for a mini reunion dinner in Copenhagen! And i’m having another round of Asian potluck again today yay!
