Review: Ao Luek Paradise (Krabi, TH)

Monday, October 2, 2017


It was Fazwan's first time in Krabi so I knew I had to let him have a taste of how it's like to stay at an authentic accommodation. It was also his first time travelling with me, so I had to gauge to see how he really is because although we've known each other for years, I always believed that a person's true colours will be revealed when they are taken out of their comfort zone. Also, if he can't last a day in the outdoors then.... Houston, we have a problem. Hehehe, just kidding. I guess I'm lucky to be blessed with the "Baby, just book and then let me know how much the total cost is" kind of boyfriend because a) I like that he trusts me enough to make travel decisions but b) isn't the fussy / picky kind of traveller and a lazy planner because c) I like making decisions! Hahahahaha. 



If you are the "I only need the space to sleep, so anything will do" kind of traveler who seeks authentic experiences and is not bothered by communal showers or mosquito nettings, then feel free to continue reading, because if you are looking for a unique living experience with a very laid back environment, this is definitely the place you're looking for. However, if you are a looking for a luxurious accommodation in Krabi, I would suggest reading my review on Ao Nang Fiore Resort instead.

Review: Ao Nang Fiore Resort (Krabi, TH)

Saturday, September 2, 2017

I first laid eyes on Ao Nang Fiore Resort when one of my friends posted a room tour of it on her snapchat, and all I could think about was how atas the place looked and how expensive it must have been for them to stay there for three nights. Probably three digits per night? I don't have that kinda money. 


Well, how can I not think that? Just look at it. The rooms are set on an individual metal structure, off the side of a cliff, with a treetop balcony each, an option to have your own private jacuzzi on that said balcony, and you have a porter that helps you carry your stuff and then drives you to your room via the service buggy every single time you need to go out or go back to your room. Wait. It's not even a room, it's basically a freaking cottage on your own tiny plot of land.

Life Lately: August 2017

Monday, August 28, 2017


I wouldn't even bother to come up with an excuse as to why my last life lately update was in May. When have I not been busy, am I right? Right. Well, in my previous life lately update, I mentioned that I needed to get my life back in order. I don't know how well I've faired since then, but I think I am doing okay. I mean, if you have no reason to be sad then don't be, right?

Today, I turn twenty five and I don't know how I should feel. 

Vlog: Perth 2015

Wednesday, August 2, 2017


I never really gotten around to blogging or vlogging much about this trip but I finally created a summary video of my trip to Perth. Can't believe it has been two years since the trip with the girls. I am definitely looking forward to graduate so I can head back there and spend a few days just appreciating the laid back life. 

How I Choose My Accommodation (+ SGD50 Airbnb Voucher)

Monday, July 24, 2017


Double room in large Victorian house in London, United Kingdom. (via Airbnb)

I am that type of traveler who feels more secure knowing that I have an accommodation booked before arriving at the destination itself. If you are anything like me, then this post would be useful to you. But before I start, I think I better state this beforehand before any low balling hater starts snapping nonsense into my face for trying to be a know it all. I do not know it all. I don't even know what's going on half the time. Ask my friends, I am that blurr sometimes. Hahahaha. Seriously. I just like to travel and then talk about it on my blog so if this is not your cup of tea, don't drink it.

YOGYAKARTA IN SQUARES

Tuesday, July 11, 2017


I have been down with a serious case of runny nose and headache. My mother thinks that it's because I've been riding without a jacket (typical makcik thinking hahaha) and my friends think it's because I haven't had a single off day since forever. Well, they are all probably right but the last time I felt this horrible and sick was when I was on the ten days trip with the boys to Indo-Malaya. A round of applause to my immune system for being able to sustain seven months without a single visit to the doctor. 

A Walking Contradiction

Wow. I can't believe that half the year has gone by already. It has been an eye opening and eventful year but I shall save all that sappy stuff for my 2017 wrap up at the end of the year.

Review: Cookies & Ginger (Johor Bahru)

Sunday, June 18, 2017


The fasting month is always filled with iftar sessions between friends, families and loved ones. I have always hated having to wait / rush when breaking my fast so its either I have proper plans made for iftar or I'll break my fast in the comfort of my own home. I love going to Malaysia though. Not only is their bazaar a hundred times better than Singapore's, their restaurants aren't as packed as it is here too. If you're looking for a good place in Johor Bahru to have your iftar session at, here's one that you can check out.
