My trip to The Datai, Langkawi

I am writing this in the midst of a 10-million-year-old rainforest – accompanied by the luscious green as well as the cacophony of insects and other mystical creatures. Occasionally, the trees will start dancing in the wind and other times, it is because of the little playful monkeys that would swing from one branch to…

My IPL experience @ Bubblegum

Waxing can be an excruciating experience especially when it comes to waxing your bikini area. At least, it is for me. Fortunately, the pain is bearable for other parts of my body but bikini area is just…hell. Coming from a person who was dumb enough to go through such agony for almost two years (every…

Why You Should Start Journaling Today

A while back, I had stumbled upon this journal my late grandfather had written for my mother back in the mid sixties. He had passed on shortly after when mom was still a child. Although, it is upsetting that I did not get the chance to meet my grandfather, I am a glad to know…

Hari Raya, 2020

And just like that, the first day of Eid has come to an end. Unlike previous Eids, our house was oddly silent – no guffaws at the dining table, no children screaming in excitement and running around the house, simultaneously, getting berated by their parent; no sound of chairs scraping against the floor in every…

Philippe – May 2019

It was almost 40 degrees outside. “The heat has killed two people in France,” I overheard on the French radio. I could sense sweats trickling down my skin as I wheeled my luggage towards the train station under the summer heat. Our gestures moved with such familiarity after a week of being in Europe –…

My Not-so-pleasant Experience in Italy

Italy is such a beautiful country. I loved how every city has its own character and for that, i truly enjoyed every bit of my time there. But i must say, the thing i love most is the pasta and pizza, the taste is so divine! I would very much love to go there again…

The Lavender Guide ( Valensole, Provence)

Precisely a year ago, i remember writing about the lavender field in Provence. When i first saw the picture of the lavenders on Instagram, it was love at first sight. When that moment finally came true, i knew it was indeed a blessing. As i stood before the lavenders that stretched as far as my…

Things You Should Know Before Going To Paris

Paris is truly one of the most stunning places I have ever been to. The perfectly manicured streets, the Haussmannien architecture, the smell of fresh breads, the sight of boulangeries at every corner, the beautiful alleys and how sometimes, you could see the top of Eiffel tower perched from behind the buildings so beautifully.  It…
