The blog is 3 years old! Thank you for walking with me for yet another year. Here are my travel reflections for 2017 and my countdown of my favorite moments!
My escape with MINI Malaysia to the beautiful Royal Belum Rainforest. We had a hundred MINIs convoy, hiked the jungles, cruised the river and partied in total seclusion!
A 3-day itinerary in Okayama — and I spent it in the midst of gorgeous gardens, stunning castles, shrines and temples; and the most awesome food… AND surrounded by the colors of autumn.
A list of all the delicious food I had while visiting Okayama in Japan — it is a small city off the tourist map, but offers some of the best gastronomic delights to please the senses and satisfy the taste buds!
Here’s how I became a Maiko, or apprentice Geiko for a couple of hours — layers of kimono, white face, red lips, high hair and all!
My evening of Italian street food and wine indulgence at “The Extraordinary Italian Taste”, an event to promote Italian cuisine and culture in Malaysia.
The rural Japanese mountain villages of Kibune and Kurama are steeped with history and myths; and coupled with its cool mountain air, river-dining experiences, onsen and beautiful temples — they make a relaxing trip out of the city of Kyoto.
Experiencing Japanese-living in Kyoto’s Izuyasu Ryokan — complete with futons on tatami floors, an onsen and delicious kaiseki meals. Such a fun experience!
The IST dive gear brand from Taiwan has been around for almost 40 years, and can now be purchased online in Malaysia. Find out more!
I have only ever read about Kuala Kangsar in my local school textbooks, so I was excited to visit this royal Perak town — and step into a little bit of Malaysian history.
Made my way to Cherating Beach on the East Coast of Malaysia to enjoy its laid-back, lazy beach vibe — and had my very own seaview pool villa at the Holiday Villa Resort Cherating. So much relaxation!
In Dubrovnik, I stared, I gawked, and I got lost in its beauty. With so many stunning churches, palaces and buildings filled with so much history — I was left in awe. This was how I spent my 3 days in the city.
Tradewinds Travel has a new travel services centre in the center of Kuala Lumpur; offering assistance for all your travel needs.
Lokrum island makes a lovely day trip out of the city. From monasteries and forts, natural wonders and the sea, and a wealth of history — there is so much to explore in this small island.
Imagine a sea of orange-roofed buildings, the endless blue ocean, and white-stone paths that curve along steep cliffs. These are views from the old Dubrovnik walls, and this was my walk around it.
Here’s a list of the top 10 things to do in a city that has beautifully rebuilt itself after a war that completely destroyed it. Mostar is gorgeous and charming, and oh so enchanting.
