Colmar Tropicale: Malaysia’s Little France
Berjaya Hills, Bukit Tinggi, Pahang, Malaysia– It was my birthday weekend and as part of our yearly tradition, I got to choose where we wanted to spend this day. Well, I always wanted to spend it in Paris, France — why? it’s every girls dream and always been my dream destination! But, since me and my genie (Raphael) can’t make it come true this year (maybe next year? :) ), we just settle to…
Paper Kites - Bloom
In the morning when I wake
And the sun is coming through,
Oh, you fill my lungs with sweetness,
And you fill my head with you.
One of the best indie band I’ve ever heard. They’ll be playing at the Globe Circuit Events for the second Wanderland Festival PH. Unfortunately, I can’t fly from where I’m right now to be there but still hoping to hear them live someday. :)
Putrajaya: City in a Garden

Where our heads mindlessly formulate logic and algorithms. 40 hours of slavery spread throughout 5 days every week, but after this torment, we are free!!
Ever since our college days we have tried our best to widen our world. Time was not an issue back then but we are constrained by the depth of our pockets. It’s quite true that as you grow older in this manic society, the inverse relationship of time and money becomes more apparent. Now, being yuppies, our advocate evolves to fulfilling the “work-life balance” most companies promise you when they woo you to work for them.
Yeah yeah, we know, why shouldn’t we just use leaves and other corporate slave privileges? Well, yes we can, but we opt to save those for special occasions/seasons (you know, like Christmas to New Year). Weekends, and holidays too if the timing is right, are our only choice. If what a mediocre futuristic movie says is right – that “you could do a lot in one day” – then, 2 days would be more than enough.
