It’s been exactly a week since I landed from my one-month break, the longest I’ve ever taken.
In 1997, my sister and I ran around The Louvre in Paris in the short time we had looking for Michaelangelo’s masterpiece called David. We couldn’t find it. Finally, we went up to the information counter to ask for it and the lady looked at us blankly, unsure of what we were on about. After […]
If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you would know that one of my biggest enjoyments in life is travelling. I have always made it a plan to travel whenever I can. I think this is something I picked up from my parents, who took us on trips all the time since me […]
Thanks to Adrian for this shot of me pretending to be part of the train levers at the Perth Train Station. In case you haven’t noticed from my tweets, I am back in Western Australia for the first time since 2008. Perth has always been a really special place to be because I lived here […]
Last month, all the editors at the Features Central section of The Star were asked to choose a superhero name to accompany our byline in the glory box on page 2 of StarTwo. I chose Spice Boy. A few weeks later, I actually got a feel of what it would be like to be a […]

The last time I went to New Zealand was in 2004. It was the second time I had visited the country – the first was in 1997 when my sister graduated from Auckland Institute of Technology (now a University). In fact, if fate didn’t change its course, I would have ended up studying in Auckland […]
In all my trips to Singapore, I never actually made much of an effort to head over to the Singapore Flyer. After all, I had already been on one of these when I was in London. The closest I ever got to it was when I was in Singapore for the Nike+ Human Race 10k […]
Well, sorry if I confused you with the title of this blog post. But I really didn’t want to give the impression that I was in Madrid, Spain, attending the MTV European Music Awards (MTV EMA). I was, however, in Singapore at the invitation of MTV Asia for their special screening of the (slightly) delayed […]
Hello Habibi, or my love … Greetings from Egypt! Yup, in case you haven’t figured it out by now, I’m traveling again and this time, it’s for work following the contest winners of Nestle Drumstick’s Roadtrip to Egypt competition.
