Sausalito – Biking the Golden Gate Bridge | Part (III)

Took a snapshot at this lovely residential estate cum diner by the bay! Loving how the baby blues of the house were in perfect pastel harmony with the cloud-streaked blues of the skies and crystal clear turquoise of the sea. We were finally in Sausalito, after biking from the pier, then across the Golden Gate Bridge! […]

[THAILAND] o10.Lamai Beach Samui

Ever taken a day from work to stroll all morning along the calmest beach on Koh Samui? I love how my traveling job makes it all easy to find myself on an entirely different city from day to day. Yet it makes me appreciative of nature’s beauty on a minuscule scale. I’m all excitement and […]

[THAILAND] oo9.Leaving on a Jet-Ski

Eight of us embarked on 4-hour jet-ski safari that took us on a tour of 7 of Thailand’s offshore islands. While Josephine maneuvered the ride for the journey to the snorkeling island, I drove both of us back to Koh Samui. We had aching arms for days after the ride. Jet-skiing is such amazing fun […]

[THAILAND] oo8.CoCo Tam’s Bar, Koh Samui

Day beds, bean bags, egg chairs, shishas and the island’s most varied selection of cocktails on the beachfront: there’s nothing not to love about CoCo Tam’s Bar. The music was sooo good we had to ask the bartenders for their playlist! Ideal for after-dinner chillout drinks, we took a short walk here from H Bistro […]

[THAILAND] oo5.H Bistro @ Hansar Samui

I’m hella fortunate to have Thai friends who know all the best hideouts and dining places. While waiting for a couple more friends to touchdown in Koh Samui, we dined at the beachfront H Bistro at Hansar Resort. Its French Mediterranean menu boasts the likes of grilled Hokkaido Scallops, pan-roasted Miyazaki sirloin, smoked duck prosciutto, […]

[THAILAND] oo4.Beyond The Sea, Siamese Brasserie

The entire week spent in Koh Samui, we basically feasted all day long on authentic Thai food and fresh-from-the-ocean seafood. The high tides plus bad weather made it nearly impossible for water-sports, so we cancelled our initial plans to take the open-sea scuba-diving license exams. On our first morning we drove to ShaSa Resort for […]

[THAILAND] oo2.Island Lovin’

Headed for Thailand’s Koh Samui with my favourite travel pals in exactly 3 days’!! ❤ So stoked about scuba-diving, and living the island life in my friends’ resort. Also can’t wait to start partying at the local hotspots on Chaweng Beach. On our last trip to Koh Samet, another offshore party island in the Gulf of Thailand, […]

3 Obvious Reasons to Visit Maldives

1. Sun, Sand, Sea As we approach winter months, basking on the beach has never been more appealing. 2. Maldives is Instagram-Worthy P.S. Do not judge my failed jumpshots please. 3. Snorkeling and other water activities are practically free on most island resorts. Some resorts even provide the equipment and instructors to guide newbies along. […]

Photo-diary: Island Life, Maldives

The beauty of Maldives never fails to take my breath away Honestly would love to stay on this island and work for peanuts, if it means that I get to see this every day of my life. Also, Kurumba Maldives is a crazy good place for getaways! It has 2 outdoor freshwater pools, 3 tennis […]

Maldives – Bandos Island Resort

Sun, sand, sky, sea – recipe for indulgences. And thus the three of us decided to go chasing dolphins in the setting sun! Maldives is indeed the perfect getaway. Self-shot with Jocelyn, Brenda and He-Cui. My hair was especially yummy that day, with a tinge of sea-salt. The awesome crew! And thus our journey to […]

[THAILAND] oo1. ISLAND AND THE CITY (Bangkok – Ko Samet)

The minute our home-bound aircraft took off, I missed Bangkok already. Even with my infected tummy hurting so badly from seafood poisoning, the land of a thousand smiles can’t shake me off. Thailand, I will be back!! The amount of insane things we did on this trip was kept to a minimal We capped it […]

Photo: Written in sand

The heart tells you where you want to be, not where you need to go. Destiny is not written in the stars. It is written in sand. Recharting a life will change it forever – just as simply, a fingerstroke can change an entire sand-art irreversibly. A destiny can also be re-written to imitate, but […]
