Travel Review: Taman Sari in Hulu Langat, Malaysia

In case you haven’t realised, I’m obsessed with nature and rarely need an excuse to venture into the outdoors but as I’m currently in Perth until the end of December, I decided to use Christmas as a reason to stay at a nearby retreat with friends. Located in Hulu Langat, Taman Sari consists of two private…

Travel Review: The Kasturi in Cherating, Malaysia

Malaysia has an abundance of public holidays but with the current economy, traveling outside of Malaysia can burn a hole in your pocket; by choosing to visit local locations, not only are you stimulating the Malaysian economy by supporting local businesses but you’re also discovering the slogan, “Malaysia, Truly Asia” while simultaneously deepening your bond…

Photo Diary: Munching Around Munich, Germany

Viktualienmark in Munich is an outdoor (and indoor) market specialising in fresh produce – from mountain cheese to seasonal mushrooms to an assortment of olives, if you’re a foodie then come hungry because the choices are limitless!

Photo Diary: Hippie Vibes in Brighton, England

Photo Diary: Life on Dhiffushi Island, Maldives

The way of life on Dhifushi Island is simple, with most houses door-less – an open invitation instead.

I first stumbled upon this flower outside of Air Dhiffushi and…

Travel Review: Air Dhiffushi on Dhiffushi Island, Maldives

I recently visited Maldives for the first time and the experience was unforgettable – although this following sentence is the epitome of cheesy, I really felt enchanted by how marvelous yet mysterious the Maldives was; the fact that we stayed on a local island provided authenticity and endless questions, directed at our host, shadowed by…

Photo Diary: Hiking Bukit Gasing, Petaling Jaya

I was in dire need of nature as a reprieve from the mundane 9-6 so after (kinda) quick research, decided to visit Bukit Gasing in Petaling Jaya for a relaxing hike.
