Giving up on Penang’s Street Art

The search made us walk all over the streets of Georgetown in Penang, Malaysia. We spent hours scouring through different streets, walking under the hot, sweltering sun, testing our patience with each other as we navigate our ways through the same streets again and again in search of more street art. We armed ourselves with…

Wonderful Misadventures of October

This October has been a wonderful, carefree month away from work. It was a time for myself, to travel and to explore.Β It has also been the most eventful trips ever for me. Things just kept happening that kept me on my toes. My trips are usually pretty boring, though. Oh well, ok…mostly. πŸ˜‰Β I like to…

Stairs in Seoul – The Bane of my Existence

Looks like stairs continue to be the bane of my existence. I’m lying in bed in my hostel in Seoul, typing this out with all my energy sapped by the long and tiring day I’ve had. The red-eye flight to Seoul that I took left me cranky and tired from the lack of sleep and…

Sunset Walk to Banpo Bridge (Rainbow Bridge) in Seoul

One of the first things I learnt about travelling is that you should always expect the unexpected. Plans will go wrong, you will deviate from your travel itinerary, you can get disappointed over some experiences. Heading out to the Banpo Bridge in Seoul or more popularly known as Rainbow Bridge for its colored fountain show,…

5 places I love to revisit

It took me a long time to put this together. Not for the lack of words but it is so hard to narrow down all the places into a list. So, at times like these, I decided to be simple and use my own terms instead. And so, I’m introducing a very mixed up list,…

Coping with Jakarta’s Traffic Jams

Jakarta is not exactly the best place I would recommend to a tourist. Rather than a city for sight-seeing, I see it as a city of contrast. The poor co-exists with the rich, huge malls stand surrounded by slums, middle class citizens carves out their own income as best that they can. As a frequent…

How I Ended Up at a Cat Cafe in Seoul

It was never my intention to visit a cat cafe. In fact, I had absolutely no interest in visiting one. Mainly because I was traumatised by a bad cat experience when I was young – my parents love to have that story retold to people over and over again. It has taken me this long…

My Dumbest Moment Ever!

Who knew that fishes lived in the sea? Raise your hands please. Ok, now allow me to have a dumb moment to myself. This dumb moment happened at Sentosa. For those unfamiliar with Sentosa, it is a small island off Singapore and is minutes away from the mainland. Don’t let the word ‘island’ fool you…

A Little Joy in the Midst of Darkness

So I’ve been in a mood for some time, hence the lack of posts. Hearing the news on MH17 pulled me right into a set of gloom and it made me send off flurries of messages to my close friends trying to see light in the midst of darkness. I was actually still up when…

Best View in Singapore

I splurged. For no rhyme or reason, I decided on an impromptu staycation with a friend at the iconic Marina Bay Sands or what is known to us as MBS. Marina Bay Sands is definitely an impressionable building. It stands out among all other buildings in Singapore with its unique structure that has visitors describing…
