Although I have been born & bred in Jakarta, I haven’t been exploring this city enough. Of course I have been to most of the must-visit places in town, but not nearly as often as I wanted to. Until, a while back, when I saw a sign that says “CITY TOUR JAKARTA” at one of… Read More Touring Home
Bangkok has become one of the major shopping destination in South East Asia. Whenever I’m there, I couldn’t resist to shop for knick-knacks and beyond. How can I not?

During my last trip to Istanbul, I have a set of list for the things I have to get while I’m there. It’s actually nothing too out of this world, but just the regular must buys.

The island is around 1 hour ride from Maratua. I then arrived in this green island with a small jetty… Read More Fried & Splish Splash
Honestly, I guess I’m not the right person to be writing this. I’m what you might consider as a Chionophile (if that’s even a real word) or someone who thrive in winter conditions. I guess back in the days, it was an ultimate dream of mine to live in a tropical island, but it make a… Read More A Short Trip To The Tropics!

When someone loves to travel, that person would realize that traveling can be a life changing experience. Many of them do not happen solely by visiting a new place, but it can be because we ate something so out of this world that it changes the way we see the world.

One winter morning, I decided that it would be a great idea to walk around Oslo by foot. It would be terrific actually if I hadn’t just rode the train for m ore than 8 hours to get there the night before. And also, it was freezing going down to -30 celcius.
