    Morocco: The Atlas Mountains, Todra Gorge and Sex & the City

    Marhaba! I went to Morocco in 2015 but a few months before that, I decided to watch Sex & the City 2 movie (I know I was five years too late!). Coincidentally, the second movie is filmed in Morocco! The entire movie had my jaws dropped and eyes sparkled by how fabulous those women looked. I mean, the four of them walking into a room with THAT fashion sense will make any head turns. Therefore, inspired by the movie, I opened my wardrobe and mix ‘n match my clothes carefully so I would look at least 10% as fab as those women for my Moroccan trip. Of course, my humble…

    Travelling in December? I Went to Chefchaouen, Morocco and You Should Too

    Are you planning to travel in December? If you haven’t decided on the destination, Chefchaouen “The Blue City” in Morocco will not disappoint you! I went to Morocco in December 2015 with little knowledge of how beautiful the country was. Oh, and it’s super important to note that Morocco in December will greet you with lovely weather. We’re talking about sunny days with a cool breeze – where you won’t get sunburnt and able to capture beautiful photos thanks to the weather. Actually, the 3 main reasons that made me decided to travel to the North African country in December were: The tourist visa-free regulation for Indonesians The Sahara Desert…

    Why Malaysians Should Visit Venice Before It’s Gone

    If you’re a Malaysian and never take a chance on your visa-free entry to Italy, you really should visit Venice before it’s gone. The news and videos about the Venice acqua alta (flood) are very heartbreaking to me. Yes, I’ve been there before. But every time I see the news and videos, my heart sinks a little deeper for the city that I love the most. Although it isn’t the first time the acqua alta hits Venice, in normal conditions, the tides reach around 80-90 cm. But last Tuesday, 12 November 2019, the water level reached 187 cm at night – the worst in 53 years. Venice Before the Flood…

    Sorry Santa, I Ate Your Reindeer at Lappi Restaurant, Finland Before Christmas

    Approaching the end of the year, the weather in Malaysia is hot and cold. Well, often cold as I’m sitting in the office with AC most of the time! As I walked passed by in Pasar Seni Kuala Lumpur a few days ago, I could see Christmas decorations in some of the shops. Oh, it’s almost that time of the year again! The cold weather and festive season remind me of my one-day experience in Helsinki, Finland, back in 2017. It was my first time in Finland and first-and-last experience trying reindeer meat at the famous Lappi Restaurant. Sorry Santa, I ate your reindeer at Lappi, Finland, before Christmas and…

    The Investment That You May Overlooked

    What if I tell you that you can print money, legally? Your body is the machine, and you’re trading your energy, time and health for every batch of dollar, euro or ringgit that you print. You’ll be fully investing yourself in the process. Will you sacrifice most of your energy, time and health to do it? Some people may do so because they’re worried that one day, the opportunity is gone. Although most of the time, it’s just people being kiasu… I once had the opportunity to achieve an unlimited bonus from a company that I worked for. Rooted in my passion for travel, I sacrificed a lot of things…

    Apparently, Your Brain Decides If Your Travel Plan Will Come True

    Some people often ask how I can persevere with my lifestyle for the sake of travelling. They may not realise that once the brain has decided, any travel plan will come true. Once the brain has decided, any travel plan will come trueBUT. You must make that travel plan A MUST In 2016, I ate the same food for lunch and skipped dinner for almost a year. Not something I encourage you to follow, though. In 2017, I wrote as many articles as I could in order to get a big bonus every month. Also, there were pros and cons to this. In 2018, I had the most short-planned trips…
