Getting Lost In Germany

I was over the moon when I found out I get the chance to visit Europe again after two years since my trip to the Nestlé headquarters in Switzerland. This time I flew to Germany for an exclusive tour of the adidas global headquarters. What a dream!

Before I take you through the badass sporty world of adidas, here are some photos from the first day I arrived in the city of Nürnberg. I’ve always been fascinated by the history and architecture of castles. My mission was to find the Nürnberg castle. I decided to walk since it was *supposedly* not too far from my hotel. I wandered the city alone, without a map (other than my phone that had no data roaming) or clue to where the castle was. A little adventurous; a little silly, really…

With a bit of help from some locals, I managed to find my way to the castle. Not without getting a little bit lost!

Gym o'clock! Arrived in Nürnberg two hours ago from Singapore. Managed to get a restful sleep on the red-eye flight that I didn't feel tired at all.

Jackpot! View from the top of the Nürnberg castle. I was so glad I didn’t get too lost although it took me two hours to find the castle when it should’ve been thirty minutes.

Beauty is what #isee

What is beauty? In my eyes, Strength.

Fitness training and physique development are a reflection of self-discipline, focus and drive. I progressed through challenges and setbacks and learned that hardwork and consistency does not just apply in training, but also in Life. I feel stronger as a person when I achieve my goals.

To be strong spiritually and physically, that’s beautiful. Beauty inside out.

Check out this new Under Armor video that perfectly shows the true meaning of beauty in strength.

So what is beauty to you?
