    Exploring my own city #1 – Thean Hou Temple

    The Thean Hou Temple. Living in this country, almost all my life, it had never occurred to me that there are so many places in Malaysia that i have yet to visit. To think about it, i would always come up with doltish and petty excuses like, ‘it is too hot’ or ‘what for? Surely, it won’t be fascinating’….. only…

    Bullet train & Suggested 3-day itinerary in Kyoto

    Truthfully, Kyoto has got to be one of the most beautiful cities i have ever been to. Kyoto is Japan’s seventh largest city and it encompasses exceptional historic value. From our B&B in Hakone, we took an hour bus ride to Odawara Station; activated our 7-day JR pass to catch the bullet train (Shinkansen) to Kyoto. I had never seen…

    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…

    Losing a light.

    I am writing this with a red and blotchy face and squinty eyes from all the crying i have been doing since two days ago. My love, my heart, my soul, or as you’d like to call it, my ‘cat’, went missing a few days ago and this morning, i woke up to the news that he is home but…

    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.

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…
