Coming back to the capital and the Southern part of Bali, my husband and I were met with two opposing stances of spending the holiday in Bali. My adventurous side demands to step out of the confines of the hotel and discover more facets of the island, but hubs just prefer to have a lie-in and dips in the pool. With a hotel like Sofitel…

To celebrate my post-wedding bliss, the location Bali was perfect; away from the mess and chaos of Bangkok, the solemn weather in Kuala Lumpur and just what we needed to have a stress-free getaway at an island so in tune spiritually.Also, it was a homecoming trip for…

It was Saturday, and it was just in time for both of us to be fully recovered to enjoy the beach life in Galle.¬†With very minimum info on what Galle could feast to us, I decided to let ourselves be in the dark and (hopefully) surprise us with pleasantries of the location. Along the drive towards Galle, you could mistake the view for Kedah; surrounded…

De Ja Vu in Sri Lanka : Colombo

Jun 20th, 2015 Travel, Uncategorized rojakcouture 33 min read

Upon first impression, Sri Lanka was hardly a part of my travel checklist. Ignorant me would assume that Sri Lanka is another extension of India, sharing almost similar traits of cultural DNA and geographical elements to that of southern India. I have only been to Mumbai and Delhi before, therefore, I pretty much base my thoughts¬†of the island nation to scenarios I have picked up…

Through the long weekend, I felt my getaway in Cameron Highlands was a an ‘inadequate’ experience. Bringing my itchy feet along, I got hold of an earlier reference from a friend on a tiny getaway shack in Beranang. Named Kepyok (javanese for Gate), the entire compound belonged to a Malay man and his Japanese wife who used to stay in Subang themselves, and converted what…

Conjoining my birthday/bachelorette adventure on the weekend, I opted for a one night stay in the mystical Island of Langkawi on Thursday. Since the stay was planned in Langkawi (prior to the hop to Koh Li Pe the next day), I decided to explore an unconventional stay on the island than the usual one-night bunk in Chenang beach. I scrolled countless hotels in Langkawi that…

The Speedy Ho Chi Minh Trail

I must admit, I never find anything appealing on Ho Chi Minh City itself. Not a coffee fan and not a fan of Vietnamese food, I decide to put that all aside and take a judgment-free stride into the city, as I have read lots about the French architectural influence and its distinct street food that has Anthony Bourdain coming back for more every time!…
