Words: Yours truly • Photos: David • Location: Stewart Lane, Penang

If you’ve been following my activities on Instagram, you’d know that since my previous blog I’ve left the UK and travelled to five different countries; Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, Malaysia, and Indonesia where I am now… and like all my other homecoming trips, I had to make a pit-stop in Penang – after all, I’m half a Penangite!

Before I embarked on this (yet another) very eye-opening trip, a few people started asking me questions about my experience as a person living far away from their family… so I’ll be sharing all my answers this #TravelTuesday! Continue Reading

5 Things to Note Before Your Visit to … Pompeii

Words: Yours truly • Photos: David • Location: The Archaeological Site of Pompeii

So… I’m in Italy, for the first time in about six years. I started writing this blog on the train from Naples to Rome, and here I am finishing it off in our Airbnb in Monti where we’ll stay for the next three, four days or so.

During our stay in Naples, we paid a visit to the ancient archaeological site of Pompeii – that was the main reason why we went to Naples and we had the best time, and we couldn’t have asked for better weather for wandering around the streets where the Romans once walked or rode.

Here, I present to you the followup. Continue Reading

OOTD // Sunrise in Pu Luong Nature Reserve

In between my London Collections: Men reports and hectic travel schedule, I like to give you guys and myself a quick break by sharing this new outfit post!!sunrise001

For the first leg of my adventure, I flew from Manchester via Doha with a quick touch-down in Bangkok to Hanoi, the capital of Vietnam. The next day, I travelled further up north of the country to the Mai Chau Valley. After just one night stay, I then left the valley for the other-worldly beautiful nature reserve known as Pu Luong, where this heavenly water cascade was located just down the hill from the lodge I was staying in, with a lovely Thai-ethnic family.
