    Dublin.

    Truthfully, I never thought I would be so invested in the history of Dublin, a land founded by the Vikings. As you stroll along the river bank, eventually, you would be reminded of the great famine that struck back in 19th century that had taken approximately 1 million lives across Ireland. 2 million emigrated from the country and many of…

    Chateau Saint Martin & Spa, France.

    Staying at a château in South of France has always been one of those things I had always wanted to do. When I had discovered Château Saint Martin, it was love at first sight and I knew I could not rest if I had not booked a few nights there. What was once a Knights Templar fortress in the 12th…

    Hôtel de Paris Monte Carlo

    When I think of Monaco, a few things come in mind : the grand collection of uncommon supercars that you don’t ever get to see in KL, the majestic grandeur of the Casino de Monte Carlo, the mega yachts (And here I thought, Dubai had it all), Grand Prix and of course, the glamorous men and women dressed in luxury…

    Glamping at Tiarasa Escapes

    I have always wanted to give glamping a try. It is the closest I could get to camping considering I am not an adventurous person and camping isn’t something I am particularly interested in. Having a good private shower is something I could not compromise. With that in mind, with a lot of photos of beautiful girls adorned in summer…

    Anantara Qasr Al Sarab, Abu Dhabi.

    I must say, like my other stays with Anantara, Anantara Qasr Al Sarab had offered us an experience like no other. There is something oddly magical about being in the midst of nowhere, amidst miles and miles of golden sea that stretches as far as your eyes could see. Being stranded in the desert has always been a nightmare no…

    Jumeirah Zabeel Saray, Dubai

    Fun fact : That one party scene at the Indian palace from Mission Impossible Ghost Protocol was actually filmed at this very hotel. Jumeirah Zabeel Saray stands out as one of the most grandiose hotels with its ornately carved entrance and palatial façade. It makes you feel like you have just stepped into a palatial golden age of the Ottoman…

    I Am Here

    Just a few months ago, never would I have imagined that I would be sitting right here on a balcony overlooking the Arabian desert in Abu Dhabi. I came across pictures of this picturesque hotel months ago and had them saved on my Pinterest thinking maybe, someday. I did not expect that someday would have happened so soon. Traveling during…

    30 is just the beginning

    When I was sixteen, I used to think 30 seems rather bizarre and far-fetched. I reckon, by 30, I would have it all figured out – like being financially stable, owning a big house, driving a fancy car, married with maybe two kids, the list stretches all the way to the north pole. It is unclear to me how I…

    In The Midst Of The Pandemic

    Exactly a year ago, who would have thought that in a few months’ time, we would find ourselves in a situation that is simply unthinkable to many. This time, a year ago, little did I know and little did we know, we were only a few months away from experiencing history-in-the-making. And suddenly, nothing else seems to matter anymore. This…

    My trip to The Datai, Langkawi

    I am writing this in the midst of a 10-million-year-old rainforest – accompanied by the luscious green as well as the cacophony of insects and other mystical creatures. Occasionally, the trees will start dancing in the wind and other times, it is because of the little playful monkeys that would swing from one branch to another. The sounds and ambience…
