Bula!! (that’s Fijian for “hello” or “welcome”… literally means “life” but you hear it as a common greeting everywhere you go here!) I’m sitting here by the dimly lit poolside, looking up into a clear night sky filled with stars and thinking to myself about the tiny turns of events that led me to being … Continue reading

Ah… so much for me hoping to get more blog posts in! Time just flies by and there’s so many items in my to-do list, I’m out and about so much it’s been weeks since I logged into WordPress to write *hangs head in shame* But alas here I am! Squeezing in a post before … Continue reading
Poor Knights’ Sways and Wobbles
I have soooo many updates!! But in between work and other social plans I barely sit down long enough to write proper entries haha. Not a sign of a good blogger. Hopefully work over the weekend won’t get too busy, and if I don’t come home too tired to think I’ll definitely put some hours … Continue reading
My dad (whom I call ‘Baba’), arrived in Wellington yesterday to visit me yay! Say hello to Baba… Happy to have him here over the Christmas & New Year holidays 🙂 He was tired from the flight and transits from Malaysia yesterday, so we only took a short stroll around the city after lunch to … Continue reading

The earthquake actually occurred in Indonesia, but it was so strong that some buildings swayed in Malaysia too. I was sitting at my office cubicle at the time, and I felt a … Continue reading
Splish, Splash, Dive Wellington
Whoa, the past week has gone by in a blur! I’ve been meaning to write this post since last Sunday afternoon, and before I realized it Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday have come and gone. Busy week aside, and this weekend being “the first weekend of Summer” here in New Zealand, it was … Continue reading
The Singing Stalker
I think I’m being stalked. I still need to prove this theory though. I was walking to work yesterday morning, leaving home a little earlier than usual to enjoy my stroll as it was a beautiful sunny day. We’ve been having these crazy windy days as of late, with grey skies and continuous light drizzles … Continue reading
My First Batizado!
Yesterday has been added into one of my ‘memorable moments in life’ list. I’ll tell you why. I had some time off work this week and took a local flight up to Auckland on Tuesday 8th November. I have a cousin who has been studying in Auckland University for the past 4 years and is … Continue reading
