Annyeong-haseyo!

Don’t you love last-minute, get-up and go kinda plans? They are the absolute best. No thinking, no fuss, no digging into details – everyone just appears and have fun. That’s how my in-laws roll, or how I successfully roll with my in-laws when it comes to family events. The more we plan ahead, the more […]

Motel Mexicola

A lot of things are on one’s checklist for a first-time, eager beaver visitor to Bali. From the cliched yoga bendings and stretchings by the beach, cycling through the paddy fields, thrilling sports like whitewater rafting to sipping coconuts while basking in the sun – it’s all very eat, pray, love.

I’ve seen him perform the […]

The Best of 2012 (Part Three)

After all the travelling I did from mid July to September – I missed two important events, my birthday (which is usually celebrated with family and friends) and most importantly Hari Raya/Eid al Adha. Nothing equates to that feeling of emptiness I felt on the morning of all those Eid al Adhas while I was […]
