Three essential 'street eats' in Malaysia
There’s little wonder why the tourist hordes have, for so long, diverted their gastronomic attention away from western countries to the cheap and cheerful culinary offerings of South East Asia and its plethora of scrumptious, delicious, saliva-inducing food fare. Malaysia is no exception to this and offers simply some of the best food to be found anywhere in the world. From Malay and Nonya...

A lack of purpose
I find myself on a Thursday night somewhat flat, in that kind of demotivated way where you’re happy to sit around and do utterly nothing, being unproductive. I shuffle between windows, games and the occasional glance at my class syllabus, knowing fully well that I won’t start on it at a later date. Am I somewhat satisfied with everything in my life? With a career that doesn’t...

Three Bags Full Cafe, Abbotsford (Victoria)
A more modest tour of Melbourne’s culinary scene was in order after two previous visits involving a mashing of touristic objectives and to also fulfil our hunger for food delights in the coffee capital of Australia. We’re taken to Three Bags Full on Nicholson Street in Abbotsford on the outskirts of Melbourne on recommendation by some friends and it was here where I enjoyed, by far,...

Swinging a hammock in Kerala, India
In what is probably one of the most under-appreciated locations in all of India is the south western coast of Kerala and its amazing beaches that run up and down this skinny province. The majority of this area’s tourists come domestically due to its lush geographical location and varied demographics/cultures. Picture luxurious house boats, where much of your time is spent falling...
Five hours, two magazines and a meal later, I’m giving myself time to reflect whilst waiting to board my flight here at JFK on the past two weeks I have spent in the United States. Firstly, I can whole-heartedly now say that I hold no regrets on bucking the trend of at-home studies for two weeks during mid-semester break, and instead, opting to embark on the longest journey of my life. I...

China: The Lost Images
So I was digging through a lot of old photos after properly acquainting myself to using Lightroom (would you believe I only use PS for my processing?) and there are some god damn hidden gems that I can’t believe I missed whilst processing my China photos. SO. Begin. Lower Emeishan Otherwise known as Mount Emei (Chinese: 峨嵋山), this UNESCO World Heritage Mountain is also one of the...
View U.S.A. in a larger map So just to show you guys the journey I have trekked through to haul my ass to Lewiston, Maine. Here is a small mapping over my journey: Flight - Sydney to Los Angeles; connecting to Flight - Los Angeles to New York City; connecting to Bus - Port Authority Terminal, NYC to South Boston Terminal, Boston; connecting to Bus - South Boston Terminal, Boston to Portland,...
Typing this out on a Greyhounds bus from NYC to Boston as we speak.. Departed Sydney at 1:50pm. 13.5 hour flight to LA. Flew towards daylight and found myself running around in LAX at 11:30 in the same morning I flew out. Had less than one hour to connect to my JFK flight. Ran like Forrest Gump to my next departure gate. 5 hour flight to NYC and landed at 8:30pm. 3 hours to connect to Port...
What was meant to originally be a surprise visit to the U.S. to see my girlfriend was ruined by her two amazing friends :) so now she’s aware and I guess it’s time to also announce it on Tumblr even though I’ve had the countdown on for quite a little while now. So guys, I’ll be flying out of Sydney tomorrow morning at 2pm (Australian EST) and will arrive in NYC by 8pm....

Have just returned from Brisbane.
A few conclusions I have made: - Brisbane is just a boring city all-round whichever way you look at it. I tried to give it a shot by coming back for the second time within 2 months and a Sydney Wednesday night is livelier than a Brisbane Saturday night. - Suncorp Stadium and the footy is enough to make up for the above. What an amazing piece of infrastructure to watch one of the best sports in...
