I think I have a new favourite spot in Atauro Island ❤️ Or maybe that spot favours me? 😀 One can be wishful and fantasize! Recall my previous post, in which I wrote about my baby whaleshark encounter on the last day of 2016, and how this occurred on our house reef. Well, exactly two weeks … Continue reading

I’ll Never Doubt You Again, Dear Ocean
I had a momentary lapse towards selfishness yesterday, and the Ocean wasted no time in whacking me back into humility and appreciation. We were out on a snorkel & dive day trip to Atauro Island, and I was excited. It was the final day of the year, and I had one dive student to finish off … Continue reading
Worst Blogger of the Decade!
That’s the award I have shamefully given myself. Worst blogger. Most inconsistent writer. Best procrastinator. All me! Because, to quote a Malay saying, “pejam celik pejam celik” (loosely translated to “blink, blink”), Time has gripped onto the cape of a PED-charged Superman flying at insane speeds, with me hanging on for dear life. And before I know it, … Continue reading
London – Feeding the Extrovert in Me
As mentioned in my previous entry, my recent visit to London was quite a last-minute decision – a detour appended to my planned holiday to Prague, Bratislava and Vienna. Now that I’m sitting here reflecting upon my entire trip, I kind of see the London portion of it as a segment that helped towards replenishing … Continue reading
The Joys Of Impromptu Travel Plans That Drop Surprises On You, And Then Have Everything Falling Into Place Anyway.
Readers! Or lack thereof! Great news – after a short burst of an interweb-tech-equivalent to CPR (in which I scramble around in the recesses of my brain to recall which username and password it is that unlocks access to my very own blog), this site is brought back to life with this post. Hurrah! Thank … Continue reading
Kathmandu, Nepal – Day 2 : A Tour Around the Valley
Raj had arranged for a driver and a local guide to take us around Kathmandu, so after breakfast we jumped into the car and went on our way to tour some famous sites within the valley. I say valley, and not city, because I learnt today that what everyone refers to as “Kathmandu” is actually … Continue reading
Kathmandu, Nepal – Day 1 : Arrival
I know it’s been over a month since I returned home from Nepal, my apologies for the delay but lo and behold I’m finally getting around to putting these posts up! Thing is, upon returning home I discovered that my laptop (which I didn’t bring along with me on my travels) had decided to go … Continue reading
Mount Everest Base Camp: Check.
They say one should never prematurely reveal the ending of a story, lest your readers lose interest and not read your writings that lead up to said ending. Nevertheless, it will take me a while to get all of my experiences and stories from the last 15 days of trekking properly compiled, written, and edited … Continue reading
Kathmandu, Nepal – An entire post about my window seat view
Back-dated post #2 Tuesday, 30 Oct 2012, 22:18hrs (Nepal time) Namaste! It’s been a nice long day and I’m just about ready for bed. However I am still feeling a tad full from our dinner (at a Thai restaurant we found along the alleys of Thamel near our hotel), so I figured I’ll sit up … Continue reading
From Kuala Lumpur to Kathmandu
Okay, as promised here’s my back-dated post #1. I’ll put a date and time stamp on all my posts which I draft offline whilst I’m trekking, as we don’t always have internet connection 🙂 Tuesday, 30 Oct 2012, 13:56hrs (Malaysia time) I’m writing this as I am cruising along some 9,000-10,000 metres above sea level, … Continue reading
