    Three miserable hours.

    I am writing this from the hospital room – confined in between these pink walls and diseases, on this uncomfortable sofa bed that I begin to despise next to my mother. It is a couple of hours before midnight and the lights are out, I could hear a faint sound of the nurse alarm that would go off every now…

    Life & Death And A Little Update.

    I have been rather occupied with insurmountable responsibilities for the past couple of weeks. I have been driving my mother to and fro the hospital and next week, she will be warded for her upcoming surgery. Nothing major, i hope. Without pretence, i despise being in the hospital. The space reeks of antiseptic smell that reminds me of life and…

    Things to do in Penang + New Year’s Eve!

    I have yet to explore my own country in its entirety but i always find myself going back to Penang again and again for a short weekend getaway. Partly because we have an apartment that needs to be cleaned every now and then but predominantly, it is the ambiance, the food and the architectural heritage that keep on beckoning me…

    Au revoir, 2017

    This time last year, i remember being at this precise spot, curled up in my bed, knowing deep in my heart that this year would be an onerous one. I remember telling my mom this, “Something tells me that i have to equip myself for funerals.” A part of me knew it was going to be filled with sadness and…
