    My trip to Hakone.

    After a week of enduring the hustle and bustle of the fourth most expensive city in the world, i thought, it would be brilliant to opt for a place that brings us back to nature as our next destination. Thus, bringing us to Hakone…. We had hired a driver that came with a 22-seater mini bus just for the ten…

    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…

    Singapore, The Lion City.

    Every few months, mom and I will have a road trip down south to Singapore. We will go to the same hotel we have been going to since I was fourteen; receiving the warm old greeting from the same faces, “Welcome back!!”  and truthfully, it feels like home. Sometimes when life gets too hectic, you need to have a pause…

    Malaysian Grand Prix ’17

      Truthfully, I wasn’t really a fan of F1. Faris had brought me to the race back in 2012 and we were seated at the starting grid and I thought that was rather tedious. I remember going home half-deaf due to the deafening sound of the engines which, apparently are orgasmic to most. And if you had asked me who…

    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…

    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 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…
