The secret world of Banyumulek where potters reside

Exploring Lombok on a motorbike is perhaps the best way to get around. Weaving through traffic in Mataram, bee lining through small lanes and stumbling upon a treasure trove of a quiet pottery making village – Banyumulek.  Located north of Mataram, the city center in Lombok, Banyumulek is lined with shops selling terracotta and clay […]

Candidasa, a quieter side of Bali

At the sound of Bali, a few words instantly pops up – surfing, massage, culture, mystic, rice fields, babi guling, shopping and the list goes on. With so much to do and only 8 days to explore, it was an impossible feat. So we set out to do just what a holiday is meant to […]

We’re off!

So we have left on our 2 month adventure and I haven’t had the slightest free time to blog before I left our home country – good ol’ Malaysia. Lots of spring cleaning, washing, packing and meeting up with family and friends – by golly it seems as if we are migrating but we will […]

Travel with a difference!

The last 2 months took me by storm. My initial thoughts were to scribble my work trips when I started in August but that became a far cry with events steadily lined one behind the other. I will attempt to take a beeline backwards (without boring you) – the last two months have been good […]

If there were more bunk beds, there wouldn’ve been more people! Kudos to the camp […]

Responsible Camping

I’ve been camping for most part of my life but only recently did I come across the term “responsible tourism (RT)” – or “responsible camping” in my case. Not only did I stumble on RT, I now have to wrap my brains around it to get a handle of RT for Wild Asia’s Responsible Tourism […]

Ari Moyang at Pulau Carey

It’s astounding how much of the Malaysian culture is hidden from the public eye. Although I’m not entirely new to the kampong lifestyle or even interactions with the indigenous people (orang asli) – this particular visit to Pulau Carey last week shed new light to the Malaysian indigenous culture. Having grown up in the city, […]

Ampang lookout point

Another exploration – this time to Ampang Lookout Point. It’s quite secluded and I don’t think much people know about until and unless the word gets around. I found out about this place when some friends surprised my sister on her 20th Birthday. Ray (my sis) started raving about it and finally decided to suss […]
