Top 5 Whale Watching Spots along the New South Wales Coast

From late Autumn to early Spring, the waters along the New South Wales coast burst into life as thousands of whales migrate north from the cold Southern Ocean to feed and breed in the warmth of the Pacific.

The Humpback Highway runs right alongside the New South Wales coast and each year more than 30,000 whales make their annual migration from Antarctica to the Pacific (and back again). Nature lovers can watch the show from numerous scenic coastal lookouts and walking tracks.

Asia Comic Con Malaysia 2018

Everyone who is into anime, pop culture, comics, games and movies would know that San Diego Comic Con is the creme de la creme of fan events. At that massive event, you can get massive fan meet and greet with the biggest celebrities, major announcements and exclusive swag. Sadly it's still all the way in San Diego and way outside of my budget of RM50. #pokailiao

Fortunately Malaysia is not without a couple of entertainment and anime events with the longest and most well-known being Comic Fiesta. Animangaki is quickly catching up with growing popularity and would most likely outgrown its annual venue of Sunway Pyramid Convention Center in the next couple of years. And this year, another new organiser has joined the fold with the inaugural Asia Comic Con Malaysia.

Random Thoughts of Epiphany in the 30s

Here's something not many writers will tell you. We don't usually produce a single article in one seating. Very rarely do I have the attention span to sit down for four straight hours constantly churning out sentence after sentence, paragraph after paragraph. Sometimes the inspiration just didn't strike despite me staring at the screen for hours on end. And other times, the inspiration would hit me at the most inconvenient time and place.

Mooncake Festival 2018 - Resorts World Genting

Being Chinese means there are a lot of things to look forward to all year round from Chinese New Year to Chap Goh Mei to Spring Festival and of course, the Mid-Autumn Festival aka Moon Cake festival. I simply love Moon Cake festival, perhaps even more than Chinese New Year because 1) moon cakes, 2) cartoon and traditional lanterns, 3) no family reunion and 4) MOON CAKES (again)
