Food Trail: Selangor’s Traditional Fare

Taste your way through Selangor starting with traditional food and fare introduced by early settlers who moved to this state from various parts of the Malay archipelago.

Sunset: Morib Beach

I’ve always found it odd that Malaysians do not see ourselves as beach bums. We do alive in a peninsular after all. In general the beaches along the West Coast of Peninsula Malaysia can never compete with the clear waters and white powdery sand of beaches along the east coast that face the open South…

Tea-ing Up With My Brews

I’ve always been a caffeine addict. From six cups of coffee a day at one time, I’ve moved on to teas. It first started with the good old teh tarik (pulled tea) sessions with colleagues after a long day at work (something most Malaysians will relate to). I then moved on to Teh C– a…

Day Break over Bangkok

I’m not a morning person, and when the first rays of the sun stream in through the windows of my room in the morning, I’d rather pull the blanket over my head and roll over. But it’s different when I’m travelling or visiting a destination for work, because I feel obliged to capture photos and…

At The End Of The Path …

Despite an illusion of distance there is a beginning and end to every tunnel, pathway, aisle or passageway. Sometimes it leads to a better place, sometime the destination you reach is a disappointment. Am hoping to reach the end of what feels like a long passageway we are all in right now. Am wondering what’s…

Cherai Beach: After the Rain

If I could bottle my favourite scent I’d call it ‘After Rain’. It will capture the fresh scent of wet grass, vegetation, palm frond, fresh earth and the subtle scent of tropical flowers. The scent of nature scrubbed clean, and the fresh cool air especially after a heavy downpour. The shots below were taken on…

Colours of LaBoqueria

Confined to home for more than a month, except for short runs for provisions at nearby shops, I’m beginning to miss the vibrancy of what I once took for granted – the simple things like the colourful scenes, smells and variety of a market. Below are some pictures of the La Bouqueria market on La…

Tangkuban Perahu: Java

This may not be how it looks like today, but the Tangkuban Perahu Volcanic Crater an hours drive out of the city of Bandung was a spot of serenity when we visited about three years ago. There was a major volcanic eruption in 2019, so am not sure if the scenes are the same today.

Sunset Over the Andaman

Am missing the beach, the sound of waves rolling in and dramatic sunsets! The dramatic sunset over the Andaman Sea captured from Pantai Cenang, Langkawi Island, Kedah Malaysia.

Park Güell: Art in Nature

The colours and architecture of Park Güell in Barcelona captures the style of its designer Antoni Gaudi whose designs mimic nature, and plays with light and reflection to infuse a little drama into the surroundings.

Heritage Trail: Jew Town

Jew town in the old quarter of Fort Kochi in Kerala was built by the Jewish community who moved to Fort Kochi in the 14th century. In it are an array of old buildings including a synagogue that at one time served the community of traders who operated from the area.

Stuff you take for granted …

Things you take for granted until it’s beyond your reach because of restricted movement. Our sweet treat just one month ago on a scorching hot afternoon along the streets of Georgetown – ‘Ais Bola’ drizzled with syrup, sarsaparilla and grape & Penang Heritage ais kacang. Ice bola is hard to come by nowadays, but it…
