The Sleeping Buddha – Nepal

The Sleeping Buddha – Nepal

Amazing things happen when Men and Mountains meet. I had trekked to Sandakphu, West Bengal, India [12000 feet] with Youth Hostel Association of India [YHAI]. More than the climb I was fascinated about the view of Mt. Kanchenjunga under Full-moon light. 25th December, 2015 was supposed to be the Full-moon night. I had selected the Trek batch dates in a way to be on Sandakphu top on the 25th. The range is most commonly known as the...

Canoeing Around Phuket, Thailand

“Lie as still as you can, lie as low as you can,” my guide whispered as he slowly navigated us into the weave of tunnels. I kept calm and still as I watched the cave close in on me, sharp rocks dangled inches from the tip of my nose. “This is too narrow. I am going to have to let some air go.” As my guide, Souk, gently deflated the canoe with his hands, I should have felt alarmed. The deeper we pushed ourselves...

The Food and Wine Trails of Australia

What isn’t apparent for the first time visitors to Australia is the gourmet food and wine culture. This is the stuff beyond the good old sausage sizzle and the ‘shrimps’ on the barbie. We are talking food, real food that can be raved on by celebrity chefs local and abroad. Australian Capital Territory This is a surprise even to the locals, but the country-side around the national capital has 140 vineyards with 33...

Phnom Penh’s Past and Present

  The Tragic Past And Positive Outlook All In A Day In Phnom Penh   There was a group of people doing the Gangnam Style on the boardwalk, with arms wildly swerving and legs kicking to the full Psy effect. Their leader, a young fitness enthusiast with a microphone hooked to his ear, shouted out the instructions and with him the rest of the group turned left and right, moved back and stepped forward in such uniformed precision...

Eureka Ballarat, Australia!

  Discovering Australia’s Golden Heritage If it was 160 years ago, I’d be squatting in mud swirling my pan away hoping to strike it rich. While I can still squat and try my hands at gold panning, the gold rush is no more and my chance of discovering anything more valuable than pebbles and dirt is as slim as winning the national lottery, however it is still possible to at least attempt to live the lives of those who...

A Day in Port Vila, Vanuatu

A Day About Lap Lap, the Mele Cascades and an Underwater Post Office I woke up to a glorious view over Vila Bay, with blue skies layered with water glistening like scattered diamonds. It was 7 a.m. and already the town of Port Vila was bustling with people, with the Central Market being the center of all activities. There were cafes offering bacon and eggs style breakfasts but the colorful and noisy market was too interesting to miss,...

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...
