Road trip through New Zealand’s South Island

Driving through nature’s postcard It’s like clicking through a stereoscope with picture after picture of gushing rivers, snow capped mountains and smooth straight roads. A different image appears at every turn of the wheel, whether static or moving, beckoning us to stop and snap yet another brochure quality photograph where the real talent is not the photographer’s, but the naturally photogenic scenery of which South...

Driving the Sunshine Coast Hinterland

On the Sunshine Coast, away from the coast lies historical towns of the Hinterlands I have longed for a long weekend away on the coast, soaking up much needed sun after weeks slavering away in an air conditioned office. When such day finally came, we took the opportunity to fly to Queensland’s Sunshine Coast for, well, a bit of sunshine. We chose to stay in Noosa with strong intentions to spend our days lazing around at the beach and...

Kuching’s Cat Museum, Malaysia

  Discovering a Different Kind of Kuching Through the Cat Museum I am finally happy. I have found the place where I am no longer ashamed of who I am, and where I am surrounded by the furry creatures that I love without the fear of being branded ‘the crazy cat lady’. The attraction of Kuching for me was not so much its Malay culture and British heritage, its beautiful mosques and temples, its colorful street fare of Jalan India...

Dishing up a Wellington food tour

A Wellington food tour that showcases the best of the city, New Zealand I feel like I should be breaking out the Jamie Oliver repertoire. “Look at this, with big plump raspberries and the moist buttery insides with a hint of citrus zest…” but who am I kidding? I am no connoisseur or Master Chef; I just know I am falling in love with this muffin. In love with culinary Wellington With potentially more cafes and restaurants per capita...

The 101 ways to travel Taipei

  There are many ways to explore and travel Taipei Those who have been to Taipei would unanimously agree that it is one of the easiest cities to travel in. “If you get lost, just look for the 101 and start again,” advised the policeman I had stopped to ask for directions. “The building is the centre of Taipei!” And he had been right. I rotate my map a few rounds to get my bearing, aligning the little picture to the tall, bamboo...

Kep the Crabs Coming

A visit to the seaside town of Kep I visited the crab market in Kep with the intention of ‘just looking’ before grabbing a couple of baguettes for a late breakfast. Following the steps of the locals I found myself surrounded by bamboo baskets hoisted out of the sea by ladies in gum boots and thick gloves, bargaining for my breakfast. Crabs for breakfast may seem a bit odd, but by the size of the crowd gathered here on the...

Beyond Angkor Wat: the stilt village of Kampong Khleang

“Want tuk tuk? We go to Angkor Wat!” touts a few enthusiastic tuk tuk drivers as we strolled out of our hotel. It is assumed here that Angkor Wat is the sole purpose of all tourists who come to Siem Reap, after all, the town has been receiving foreign visitors for 120 years, acting as a gateway to the Angkor temples. We had different ideas however, and stayed in Siem Reap a little longer to get a sense of what else there...

Living it large at Sydney Festival

Sydney Shines during Sydney Festival As usual, Sydney started the year with a big bang. The city’s annual display of fireworks is claimed to be one of the best in the world, and its attempt to impress has only just started. What I love most about this energetic city which I call home, is that it knows how to party in the summer. This is my favorite time of the year. Not only is Sydney’s sky a glorious crystal blue most of...

Roller Derby Rolls into Australia

LA Roller Derby Comes to Australia Roller Derby Gets Extreme in Sydney Australia It’s not just Roller Derby, apparently. It’s the world’s first Roller Derby Extreme (RDX) and it’s bringing banked track roller derby back to Australia after 30 years. It was my first ever roller derby event and it only took me five minutes to become mesmerized. The venue was fully set up for entertainment sport, and I felt like...
