    First Timers Tips (Tokyo)

    Tokyo is truly by far, the most hectic city i have ever been to. We always find ourselves in the train station, catching one train after another, and other times, we find ourselves in the midst of the crowd, feeling like a canned tuna. I find it rather difficult to keep up with the pace. It’s not to say that…

    Tokyo

    Never in a million years would i have pictured myself writing this post with the Mount Fuji majestically standing right before me; peeking sheepishly from between the trees. The cold is creeping from the cracks of the window while the heater is roaring from the corner of the room. I’d like to imagine i am in the midst of the…

    Solo travel – Sydney ’14

    Travelling alone can b­­e terrifying…. especially for women. Rape cases from all over the world have gradually becoming an everyday news just like the weather report. It is unfortunate that we have to live with fear of our own safety. Hoping that the world could be a better place seems far-fetched from where I stand. It is not to say…

    Bali ’17 Ubud 

    In all truthfulness, I was a tad too excited about going to Ubud again. Something about Ubud that gives me a sense of tranquility; the thought of being encompassed by green and the breezy misty mornings give me an indefinite warm and wonderful feelings. However, i was down with fever and flu a day before we left for Ubud and…

This time, however, we came with a lengthy to-do list in the back of our head and it was an equal measure of work…

    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 admired Indian architectures in its…

  • Paris,  Travel

    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 like the city. I had…

    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 luggage and when we stepped outside, this old and adorable red convertible car was awaiting us. Boy, we were excited. The driver had asked, “Do…

    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 into something utterly vicious and…
