Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia | 11 Jul, Day 1

This is our first visit to Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia. In fact, this is our 2nd visit to Malaysia since we dated. We planned not to have another vacation after our Chiang Mai vacation earlier this year. We could use the money for the new housing arrangement. The truth is, we do need to refuel and […]

A Restful and Interesting Vacation to Kick-Start the Year of Dragon

We started a restful and unexpectedly interesting vacation before kick-starting the year of Dragon. When we booked the room, we knew what we were getting ourselves into, we just didn’t expect a series of pleasant encounters and experiences while staying in a small and somewhat private compound of 4 independent traditional Thai houses. We’ve been […]

ubud, bali, day 6 | hiding out at ‘coffee and…’ cafe from rain

scenic view from the back of the bungalow

I woke up quite reluctantly at 7.30am, as we had arranged for breakfast to be served at 8am. Mike turned on the television as soon as he was awake, even before he washed up. ‘… we have lost’ was heard immediately after the television was switched on. It was our Prime Mister Lee Hsien Loong […]

mie goreng for brekkie

Breakfast after shower was Mie Goren for me; and American breakfast for Mike. While waiting, the call rang, and the front desk said that we had a call from the other hotel. I was surprised since I had not left the contact during booking, but I did the request for a pick up service. Kajane […]

ubud, bali, day 1 | first visit to Bali

bureaucracy talk on the phone..

The alarm clock sounded off at 5am. Showered, prepared, and left home at 7am. Lek, Mike’s long time buddy agreed to ‘take care’ of our car while we were away, so we were leaving for his place to fetch him. The check-in was quick and easy, which left us more time, and Mike called the […]

aonang, krabi, day 10 | anniversary trip

massage corner - aonang, krabi

The first night that I didn’t sleep well. Mike decided he was fed up with the blood-sucking mozzies, so he wore his long-sleeved shirt to sleep. On regular nights, the mozzies would for ‘high grade blood’ – Mike has a different blood type as I and accordingly, his blood is regarded as fine delicacy to […]

aonang, krabi, day 9 | anniversary trip

relaxing while the boy pack dinner back

The daily routine began with breakfast at hotel. Then we just sat back and relaxed at the porch. It was a breezy and comfy feeling when time stood still and nothing mattered. The greenery theme does wonders to relax the city people almost instantly. I guess, deep inside each of us, resides the primeval desire […]

aonang, krabi, day 8 | anniversary trip

waiting for breakfast to be served (blue village)

I didn’t sleep well the night before. I dreamt that the laundry was stained during the wash, I guess I lacked faith and trust in people; or because I had my whole load of laundry ‘dyed’ into orange and red on the last trip to Phuket. It didn’t help when Mike got up many times […]

aonang, krabi

We had breakfast at the hotel. We were given the menu but we could only choose from limited selection. The door to the jungle hut couldn’t shut properly, so Mike had to lock me in from outside. It was warm outside, so I wanted to stay in the air-conditioned hut and surf the internet. We […]
