    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…

    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…

    First Timers Tips (Tokyo)

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.

    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…
