Kumamoto, Kyushu [Day 2] - Kumamoto and Miyazaki in One Day

Let's face it. When travelling, there will be the sunny days when everything goes as planned and there will be rainy days when everything just falls apart and leaves you soaking wet on the sidewalk. The second day of my Kyushu trip was the latter. Quite literally.

This day was the wettest day of my entire trip and it was also the one day when we had the most outdoor activities in the outskirts of Kumamoto and Miyazaki. I could have cancelled everything but decided ya know what, we have the car, let's just head out and see how the weather holds up.

[App Review] Finding Instagrammable Spots in Putrajaya with SoCar

Turkey. Japan. Morocco. Heck even Singapore - All of these travel destinations are known for having some of the most picturesque locations ever to grace Instagram. Which is a shame because Kuala Lumpur too has its fair of stunning locations (that isn't the Batu Caves, KL Tower, Twin Towers and Dataran Merdeka) - they just haven't been discovered.

So together my Volkswagen Polo from Socar, let me take you on a drive to one of Kuala Lumpur's hidden gems when it comes to Instagrammable spots - Putrajaya. You must be thinking, "Eh Putrajaya?

When I first mentioned this restaurant to my friend Elie, her immediate response was... "Oh, I am up for Japanese food!" The second time I brought it up, she decided it was Korean before a quick Google search quickly corrected her. "What, it's Indian?"

Slowing myopia in children with Hoya's MiyoSmart spectacle lens

Hands up if you're like me and spent the better part of your childhood seated in front of the telly, staring unblinkingly as vibrant cartoons and superheroes flashed across the screen. If I could go back in time, I would drag seven year old me far and away from the television, thus saving myself the torment of glasses and contact lens much later on.

[Race Review] KLSCM 2019 Half Marathon: Chasing that Pacer Balloon

2.5km into the race, I turned the corner into Jalan Raja Abdullah  and I could see those two giant yellow balloons bopping up and down in the air ahead of me. At this point everyone around me started speeding up, trying to overtake the 3:00 hours pacers. I did too even though the Chinese in me had already done the maths and I knew if I held my current pace, I would eventually overtake them anyway.
