Macau Musings

This wanderlust has been an effective family therapy for us.  I’ve been writing here for a while but I forgot to mention that I work abroad (currently based in Singapore) and away from my family.  Like most overseas worker, I made it a point to go back to my hometown every 6 months and spend a week or so with my family.  But before…

Liebster Award 2017

Two weeks ago, I was given the Liebster Award for bloggers by Audrey, author of the blog Living for Experiences.  I thank Audrey for this nomination as I did not expect people to be reading a lot of my writings and musings.  It is an honor to receive such a nomination.  Check out Audrey’s blog here and be inspired by her amazing insights on…

About Anniversaries

It’s been a while since my last write-up (or to be more accurate, since I last travelled).  Honestly, I have maxed out my paid leave for the first three quarters of the year and have to wait for a few more weeks to be able to make use of the available balance.  But that may not happen.  I have resigned from my current post…

Silence is Golden

This write-up should have been posted more than a month ago.  I actually forgot I have these photos from our recent Club Med Bintan retreat; and I was only reminded of having them when I was looking at my passport while on queue at the renewal section of the embassy a few days ago.  I have to admit that long holidays are always short. …

The Seoul I Love

You know what?  It’s a good thing we will have our company retreat next week.  It will give me enough time to shake off this overwhelming feeling I had from my last trip.  I just came back from Seoul and obviously still in a daze; my body already here but my mind still back there in the cold.  I usually only spend a week…

Malacca: My Take

Even the hard-working aspiring writers find themselves struggling for words sometimes.  I was almost tempted to simply post these recent photos and let the images speak for themselves.  Besides, a picture paints a thousand words, right?  Yeah right.  But a part of me also believes that a thousand words paint a beautiful picture.  If you love writing, use it to make up for a…

Putrajaya Architecture Ramble

This is another one of those times when you get to choose last-minute holiday destinations.  We took one week off in the office to celebrate the Chinese Lunar New Year.  At the back of my head, I was hoping that our company would send us to somewhere really cold or even exotic to spend the one-week holiday (like what our company usually do).  Well,…

A Year in Postcards

I could have called this post “A Year in Review” or “My 2015 Travels” but I thought it would be a cliche.  We always do this year-end post or write-up where we cross out a few items in our travel bucket list (or any bucket list for that matter) and admittedly, this post is in some ways no different.  But it’s a little bit…

Experiencing Thainess

“Travelling:  It leaves you speechless, then it turns you into a storyteller.”– Ibn Battuta Finally, I ran out of sensible things to say except maybe to tell you about the series of crazy and unbelievable events that led me to this place and made me love it.  Bangkok was one of the last cities I planned to visit.  I have always loved the city…

A New Orient

“We travel not to escape life, but for life not to escape us”– Anonymous This fascination with the east has been going on for quite some time now.  Well obviously, I grew up in this neighborhood.  And if you are here, you are spot on.  Now is the perfect time to be living, thriving, and breathing in this part of the world. So why…
