Getting to know Jozi #MeetSouthAfrica

Immediately after spending 2 weeks in Berlin, it was time to fly to Johannesburg for the #MeetSouthAfrica campaign. They say, “It’s Jozi, that Joburg is affectionately known as.. ”   I say, “Very nice to meet you, Jozi!” 

I heard a Roomer – Roomers Frankfurt

One of the incredibly cool hotels I managed to stay at while passing through Frankfurt, thanks to Agoda’s fine arrangements, was Roomers. The hotel itself is located a mere 3 minute walk from Frankfurt’s main train station and is also located just 10 minutes to a trendy food district in town. If you don’t mind a bit […]

Queensland – Gold Coast Hinterland

Moving away from the Sunshine Coast, we head South towards Gold Coast, but not before making a short detour into the Hinterlands, the inner section from the coast, where the hilly, mountainous regions and its farms offer its own rural charm. Though we passed many fields and farms in quaint towns and idyllic nature parks, […]

A trip to Kampung Nibang, Sabah

Since February, Selangor, Malaysia’s most populous state and its economic and industrial hub, has been in a water rationing programme.

Inventive Asian at Tim Raue, Berlin

“I don’t use potatoes, or serve bread, or any of that heavy stuff”, says Tim Raue, when he has had the time to stop by our table to say hello. Berlin that is well known for its risqué antics, anti-establishment views and inventive dining scene was just the place to eat well, and to eat […]

A Genuine Haven, called Gozo

The tiny island Gozo, that’s located just next to Malta is a genuine haven. It’s a great place to get away for the day – highly walkable with many great nooks, people to meet, as well as some terrific spots for lunch. On Gozo, you will find beautiful prehistoric temples, fossil-studded cliffs, breathtaking coves, great […]

Road trip – into the belly of Malta

One of the best ways to experience Malta, is by renting a car, and driving around the island. Some might say that the evel knievel antics of impatient drivers who drive heavy on the right foot are a nightmare to encounter, but coming from Malaysia, I’d say it’s pretty much the same sort of driving. If […]

Charmed by diminutive Valletta, Malta

One of the most historic spots in the Mediterranean, and one of the most concentrated historic areas in the world, happens to be a place that I am currently in and exploring, Valletta, Malta. The charmingly diminutive capital, Valletta, a World Heritage City and European Capital of Culture 2018, is a perfect place to stroll […]

One Malay Kampung House, one KL Tower, a pair of Twin Towers and a Dtourist

A day after our return from Queensland, we become a tourist again in our own home turf. We met up with MJ Tam, a popular person of sorts in her hometown of Chicago, the windy city of North America, and one of the 6 winners of the DTour of a Lifetime competition. As a Dtourist, MJ had embarked […]
