More food from Malacca

So, I didn’t have much time to post about food although I promised on Saturday that this would be what I intend to blog about during my few days stay in Malacca. Saturday was relatively easy as we only got in at noon. Still, we managed to have nasi kari, wan tan mee and oh […]

Rediscovering Malacca's heritage

As a kid, I used to make my dad take me around Malacca and pretend to be tourist. We’d hit the major tourist spots – A’ Famosa, St Paul’s Hill and the old Padang among others – and I’d get him to tell me all about the historical city and its history. Dad was from […]

Pigging out in Malacca

Sorry for the very non-hall title but I’m anticipating a rather non-halal weekend here in Malacca. I’m here at my dad’s kampung (and mine by adoption) for work. I’ve been on leave for the past 8 days (which explains my frivolous postings prior to this) and back on a Saturday. Bummer. Am in Malacca running […]

Backstage at Big Day Out

Here is the link to the article (see blow), as promised. I promised to update this blog with more pictures from Big Day Out when the story came out. Well, it did today – except that it’s not available online (we’re in this transition thingy at work and the system’s pretty wonky, and will be […]

Meeting Jelena Dokic and Tamarine Tanasugarn

I know they’re not the best players in the world but I never usually get the chance to watch tennis games live anyway. So imagine my thrill when yesterday, while I was in Perth, I got the chance to watch Jelena Dokic kick some Korean ass (metaphorically speaking, of course) at the Fed Cup Asia/Oceana […]

A Big Day Out indeed

Oh wow! What a day! I have just returned from Claremont Showgrounds in Perth, Western Australia where I was covering the massive music festival that is Big Day Out. I am here as a guest of Air Asia X – one of the sponsors – and will be doing the article for The Star (look […]

Term starts in Australia

Huge boxes (probably filled with Maggi Mee) and tons of luggage, parents hoarding around the trolleys and eager young faces (and some looking fed up with parents fussing over them(. It can only mean one thing – students are heading off overseas! It’s nice to know that the economic crisis has not affected the dreams […]

Holidays are tough

Are holiday’s really holiday’s when there’s so much effort involved in planning, travelling and er, waking up at 4.49am in the morning?!?! I suppose I should be grateful ‘cos this time I’m not doing the planning – just gonna sit back, and enjoy the trip. I’m secretly quite excited, as I’ve not traveled with them […]

30-Hour Famine 2008 - Journey to Laos

I know that I said I was done with blogging about my trip to Laos but it appears that World Vision has just uploaded the 8TV show on the trip. I promised to post it when it was up, so here it is: Part 1 of 3 Part 2 of 3 Part 3 of 3 […]

Papan: Home of war hero Sybil Karthigasu

Excuse my not blogging yesterday. I am currently in Ipoh for the R.AGE Trailblazer competition due to begin in barely a few hours. Before I head to bed, I just wanted to share some images with you guys. Today (well, yesterday technically as it is after midnight), I went to visit the small one-road town […]
