Malaysia is renowned for its beautiful, pristine beaches, one of which is a tiny island situated about 6km off the coast of Marang, on the East Coast of Peninsular Malaysia.
In today’s uncertainties, it’d be great to be somewhere with a splendid and magnificent view. Heaven on earth. Everything feels far and disconnected as we’re stuck at our homes. If only there was a bridge to reach into the realm of picturesque wonders. Actually, there are quite some literal bridges with exquisite vista beyond words. […]
Having a royal fantasy is a phase where most people would go through growing up. Imagining we are some sort of a ruler, King or Queen of our own self made empire in our castle. In movies, palaces stood opulent and exclusive. But did it ever came across your mind there’d be a dental room […]

Indians the world over have a gesture that, as far as I know, is unique to them. It is a sideways lift of the chin, usually performed in unison with a play of the eyes – a long, benign blink – and an almost imperceptible sway of the shoulders. Depending on context, it can be […]

The tranquil natural surroundings were […]

I must admit it was quite a new experience for me, a city kid through and through, to be boarding a train heading to the rural areas in the northern state of Kelantan for my first homestay experience. As a young adult relishing the comforts of a modern world, I wondered how I’d fare in […]
“Congratulations! You are now standing at the Southern Most Tip of Mainland Asia.”
The signboard beamed widely at me as I peered towards the vast landscape. As winds blew gently over the confluence of the Strait of Malacca and Strait of Johore, the sun beat wildly upon the skin.
Whew! Despite the intense heat, the view of huge tankers docking in international waters was a sight to behold.
