Twenty-five

In precisely a couple of hours time, i will turn twenty-five. Twenty-bloody-five. Unlike many other years before, this time, the absence of excitement seems rather profound. I used to be that girl who would grin from ear to ear at the thought of turning a year old. Old enough to drive, old enough to go…

Tropical fashion essentials

If you are planning for a sweet getaway to a tropical paradise, it could be Indonesia or Thailand or Maldives or Port Dickson even, I would say linen clothes are truly it. Majority of the clothes i brought to Bali were linen and i reckon, it is one of the best decisions i made. I…

Bali ’17 [ Seminyak + Canggu]

If you have read my blog, you would know that about eight months ago, i was in Bali. Eight months later, and yet again, Syaira and I found ourselves in the heart of the tropical paradise. This time, however, we came with a lengthy to-do list in the back of our head and it was…

Travel Bucket List Part 1

It is unfortunate that flight tickets are just exorbitant and of course, our currency is outrageous. Otherwise, i would have made travelling as a monthly ritual. Here are a few places that i really want to go at least once in my lifetime! Jaipur, India¬† Image by Faithfull The Pink City, Jaipur. I have always…

Paris is always a good idea.

When i was in Melbourne, i remember watching Audrey Hepburn’s movies over and over again especially Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Sabrina, Roman Holiday, Charade as i curled in my bed with the entire pizza to myself. When i think of Audrey, i would somehow think of Paris – the Seine, her timeless beauty and elegance; just…

Quarter-life crisis

  As i near the age of twenty-five, i could feel the frustration gradually seeping into my life before i finally find myself at the lowest ebb. My business seems rather boringly monotonous and hanging out with friends feel like a chore. It is not to say that my life is falling apart, rather, it…

Arriving in Madrid + Day trip to Segovia

I was given a grand opportunity to go on a trip to Madrid to visit a family’s friend with my mother alongside my aunt and her two other relatives. When we landed in Madrid, we were greeted by Vincent, her employee. He helped us with our luggages and all we had to do was to…

Bali ’16 Last night in Seminyak + Travel solo or with a partner?

After leaving Ubud, we had one more night in Seminyak. We spent our final night in¬†Astana Kunti which was truly a major letdown. The building in its entirety was a bit run down and shabby and we both concurred that the villa needs a little repaint or makeover. But of course, we had spent our…

Bali ’16, Ubud

Before checking out, we still had time for breakfast and a little shoot at the hotel ground. By the time we checked out, our driver was already waiting for us. He helped us carry our luggages and when we stepped outside, this old and adorable red convertible car was awaiting us. Boy, we were excited….

Bali ’16, Uluwatu

  Uluwatu is one of the most beautiful places i have been to. But then again, i am always a bit biased when it comes to the sea. Something about the sea that often leaves me in awe; how it is therapeutic and exquisite but within a split second, it could completely change its course…

Bali ’16, Seminyak

Before November ’16, I had gone to Bali once for a family vacation. About a week after we left, there was a bombing that killed 20 innocent lives and left 129 injured. I was still a gauche teenager then and unfortunately, the only memory I had of Bali was an elderly Indonesian woman who was…

First post!

Hi. I haven’t written for so long. I used to write fiction a lot and i guess, i have completely ran out of ideas. If you know me, you’d know that besides writing, i love to travel and i love wearing my designs when i travel. So here i am, creating a new blog, again,…
