    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…

    Twenty-five

    In precisely a couple of hours time, i will turn twenty-five. Twenty-bloody-five. Unlike many other years before, this time, the absence of excitement seems rather profound. I used to be that girl who would grin from ear to ear at the thought of turning a year old. Old enough to drive, old enough to go to the cinema to see…

    Tropical fashion essentials

    If you are planning for a sweet getaway to a tropical paradise, it could be Indonesia or Thailand or Maldives or Port Dickson even, I would say linen clothes are truly it. Majority of the clothes i brought to Bali were linen and i reckon, it is one of the best decisions i made. I simply love the fabric. Something…

    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…

    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…

    Quarter-life crisis

      As i near the age of twenty-five, i could feel the frustration gradually seeping into my life before i finally find myself at the lowest ebb. My business seems rather boringly monotonous and hanging out with friends feel like a chore. It is not to say that my life is falling apart, rather, it is doing just fine. I…
