My Bedroom Makeover: Trashbin to Green Haven

If there was one good outcome from MCO for it, it would be that it finally kicked my ass into gear to do a total bedroom revamp/makeover. During lockdown, I found myself spending a lot of time in my bedroom as I was working from home. On top of that, I was playing a lot of Sims 4 which had my wannabe interior designer juice flowing.

Food Review: Tealive x Walls Bobalicious Ice Cream - Genius or Meh?

Who here is as crazy about Boba tea as I am? While the boba craze may have come and gone and come and gone again, I will always say that Tealive is easily one of my go-to bubble tea brands. It's certainly more reasonable than many boba brands and easily available in malls and at petrol stations.

So when it was announced that Tealive would be collaborating with my childhood ice-cream brand, Walls, of course I couldn't resist heading out to the nearest 7-Eleven to buy a stick or two...or four of the new Walls x Tealive Bobalicious ice-cream.

Adventure awaits us in Malaysia's Backyard with Sedunia Travel

The final day has finally arrived when the government has opened up interstate travelling to Malaysia. While it still means I can't go back to my Kampung aka Japan, it does open up the country for economic recovery and an opportunity for people to explore their own country aka their own backyard.
Why travel so far when we have stunning pristine beaches just a quick drive or flight away? Hm, I might just hop on a flight to Kuching to get my fill of Sarawak Laksa. But with a limited budget and leave days, a weekend trip seems like a better idea for now. Ready to take Malaysians on an adventure with the introduction of their domestic travel campaign, In MY Backyard, Sedunia Travel has a plethora of local travel packages that showcases the beauty and appeal of our very own country.

5 reasons why you should rent a bicycle the next time you travel

I think one of my best memories of travelling was the time I cycled 21km around Kyoto on a rented bike. I cycled from my hostel (Hana Hostel) near Kyoto Station to the Imperial Palace where we took a free tour in English then onto Kitano Temangu Shrine for their monthly bazaar and then to the Golden Pavillion. It was perhaps the most memorable day of that entire trip. 

So if anyone were to ask me if they should cycle, walk or rent a car to explore a place, I would say - just cycle. You get the best experience of walking and being on two wheels.

Saga, Kyushu [Day 5 Part 2] - teamLab Borderless at Mifuneyama Rakuen

Welcome to Day 5 of my journey through Kyushu...part 2.

I must say I do wished that I had spent more time in Nagasaki. The city had a charm of its own - a blend between Western and Japan, further made more sobering by the bombing. As we departed to head to Fukuoka, I told myself I would come back to explore more. My drive on this day would take us from Nagasaki to Takeo city in Saga Prefecture followed by a half day trip to Itoshima and finally to Fukuoka to check in at our hostel, the Life Hostel and Bar lounge (review is up here) As we visited multiple sites in Itoshima, I will save a rundown of those things in a separate post and dedicate this post to our visit to Saga, specifically Mifuneyama Rakuen and the teamLab interactive display.

1. Murder on the Orient Express (Harper Collins)
Author: Agatha Christie
Destination: Turkey
“It would be a pity to pass through (Istanbul), — comme ça.” He snapped his fingers descriptively. “Nothing presses—I shall remain there as a tourist for a few days.”


After solving his latest case, detective Hercule Poirot planned to spend a few days in Istanbul as a tourist. With its East meets West location, visitors can immerse themselves in its long history dating back to the Roman empire. Istanbul is undoubtedly rich with culture, unique arts, and remarkable architectural sites. If the book inspired you to get to know more about Istanbul, take a look at the Hagia Sophia, once an Orthodox Church and Ottoman Mosque.

Malaysia’s biggest Columbia Asia Hospital Opens in Tebrau

I've had only one experience using Columbia Asia and that was for a health medical check up required for me to get my teaching license. Who knew right. Anyway, I opted for the Columbia Asia near my house because I figured there would be fewer people there and wouldn't need to wait so long compared to University Malaya or Assunta Hospital nearby. I registered, made an appointment in advance and showed up on my appointment date with little fuss. Did my medical check up the morning, went for brunch with my old work mates during which I got a call saying my results are ready and went back after lunch to collect them. Easy.

My Thoughts on AirAsia Unlimited Pass

Updated 12 May 2020: Pass Validity has been extended until 30 June 2021! 

I bought the AirAsia Unlimited Pass on its launch day and have used it already so I think that alone puts me in a greater authority to comment on it than half the "analytical" netizens out there. Initially I had no intention of doing this post but the more misinformation I saw on the Internet, the more triggered I became.

For an understanding of what the AirAsia Unlimited Pass is, go to the announcement post here.
