We’re heading towards the great migration…

The Chinese New Year’s is coming and I vividly remember seeing this documentary a couple of years ago of the queues outside the train station in Beijing. Mayhem.

Palawan beach, the place where my thighs became a darker shade of red.

We spend yesterday by the beach. We started off with the munchkins at a water land, playing pirates.  The whole place was a hit. Even for me and sis who could spend most of our time on a mat under the palm trees and watch how the two of them played away. They only graced […]

The jet lag is real in Beijing, that’s for sure.. I’ve been trying to stay awake throughout the day as I’ve slept approximately 7-8 hrs in the last two days. And in those 48 hours I’ve spent approximately 12 hours on the road. Correction – amongst the clouds… So I turned to music. Thank you to […]

Handwriting is an unknown art form

And a rarity these days with computers and iPads, mobiles and emails. No one writes anymore. Me included. Until today. I’ve always wanted to write a book. About life, all the experiences I’ve been through. About friends, travels and love and hate. My love for food, for life, for warm cinnamon buns and cold milk. […]
