    Cinque Terre, a Walk to Remember in Italy

    COVID-19, be gone! It took me some time to get inspiration for what to write about this week’s blog post. I miss walking outside so much thus I decided to write about my one-day adventure in Cinque Terre, Italy. It was a very long walk and tiring, yet made me so happy. Oh, how I wish to experience it again, especially at times like this! Cinque Terre is the postcard image of colourful buildings on top of a cliff with a beautiful blue sea that some of you may have seen in Google. The must-visit destination in Italy is located in the rugged Italian Riviera coastline and consists of five…

    Confessions of a Crossdresser

    Buon giorno! I hope everyone had a great weekend! I went to Bali for four days and returned to KL with a flowery mood. It was a great, lovely short trip with my boyfriend. As you can see from the cover photo, we have a huge age gap. A friend asks me, “Are you for real?” haha… But hey! Age is just a number. We don’t get to choose who the heart wants. It just happens… You can deny or mask the truth, but you can’t lie to yourself. And then, out of a sudden, this friend of mine makes a shocking confession. “Clara… I’m a crossdresser.” The Heartbreaking, Beautiful…

    Galentine’s Day at Sea Rock Villa, Bentota, Sri Lanka

    It’s the lovey-dovey month again (yes, FEBRUARY) and the sky has been gloomy these days. Come on, we need sunshine to welcome Valentine’s day! In February 2019, I went to Sri Lanka for a 6 days solo trip and enjoyed it to the max. The travel agent arranged a one night stay at Sea Rock Villa, Bentota before my last day and I found myself thinking, “Yes! I deserved this!”. Bentota is a resort town with clean, private beaches, comfortable resorts and less packed. It’s a contrast to Hikkaduwa, which is as busy as Kuta (Bali). If you’re thinking to have Valentine’s Day trip in Sri Lanka with bae, you…

    Transiting in Malaysia? Here’s Your 1 Day Kuala Lumpur Express Travel Itinerary

    What would you do if you or someone you know have only one day to spend in Kuala Lumpur aka KL, Malaysia and want to experience the rich culture? Whether you’re transiting or just want to have a crash-trip in KL, I’ve crafted this post as your 1 Day Kuala Lumpur Express Travel Itinerary. I was a KL tour guide for two people who had a similar situation, therefore, the inspiration of this week’s blog post 😉 But before that, let me share the story behind this. The whole idea of being a tour guide in a city where I’ve lived in for more than 10 years is inspired by…

    I Made Chiang Mai as My First Thailand Trip… Though It May Be Unethical

    A lot of people rave about Thailand, especially Bangkok and its paradise islands. I had enough of people telling me that I should go to Thailand, so I did, in 2018. However, instead of Bangkok or Hua Hin (the Thai’s Santorini-style destination), I chose Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai as my first Thailand trip. I know, I know. I will visit Bangkok one day, don’t worry. But if you haven’t travelled to Chiang Mai, now I’m telling you that you should :p I was browsing Thailand tour packages when I found the Chiang Mai trip. And the main reason that tickle my wanderlust soul was the Long Neck Tribe Village.…

    Admiring the Beautiful Landscape of Morocco and the Sahara Desert

    You will not see a lot of greens in Morocco but the African country will charm you in its own way, especially the landscape. The news of Australian bushfire reminds me that we should be grateful and appreciate mother nature, and the landscape we’ve been to. Whether it’s the spectacular Norwegian fjords or the exotic Sahara desert of Morocco. Therefore, I would like to share with you the beautiful landscape of Morocco. The Morocco Landscape Traveler Photo Album I know I look fat in the photo. But I didn’t care as it was SUPER COLD in the morning in Sahara! I had layers of clothes and wished I brought my…

    Morocco Nightlife: Buddha Bar Marrakech and Rick’s Café Casablanca

    Happy New Year 2020! This week’s post is a little bit late because, ehm, honestly I was too in the year-end mood, hehe! In this blog post, I want to share with all of you about the nightlife in Morocco. Yes! Morocco is more than an exotic culture and mesmerizing designs. During my trip to Morocco, I had really good times in Buddha Bar, Marrakech and Rick’s Café, Casablanca. Of course, the interior design of both places made the experience more worth it. The Luxurious Buddha Bar, Marrakech I prefer bars over clubs because I can’t stand the smoke. Well, unless I really feel like dancing and going wild 😛 And,…

    My ‘Unbranded’ Year End Sale Items Surprised Me

    “What did you buy during 11.11 sale?” my friend asked me. “Skincare products,” I replied, feeling a lil’ bit proud of myself. “Claraaa??!!” she looked at me at disbelief Lol… Yup, most of the products that I bought during the year end sale are ‘unbranded’ or should I say, less popular. What makes me excited the most during the year end sale is I can stock-up skincare products such as shampoo, conditioner, face serum, face moisturizer, lip balm, etc at low prices #necessity I always tell people that I’m a FIRE movement follower, but I know I’m not 100% doing what’s supposed to do: saving >50% of my salary for…
