It gets me when people say you haven’t seen the “real” ____. Whether it’s the “real” Disneyland, or the “real” Penang. Where I live and what I experience is real. So what makes my “real” Penang any less real then someone else’s? What makes our perception …

I don’t really “do” butterfly parks. Butterflies are pretty, sure, but a whole park on them, sounds like a 100 yawns a minute. We had managed to skip them in every country we had been to, but at the guests request we must acquiesce.

I have just bribed my first corrupt cop… or rather I have accepted the suggested bribe made by a corrupt cop. Tell us your stories!

I try never to listen to the labels people place on each other especially the labels they give children. Terrible Twos is a horrible term in which I am constantly refusing to believe, but there are those moments when you are in a lush garden surrounded by…

You know when you just know someone. You met them and already you are talking 100 miles an hour, laughing and there’s that connection that while you may have just met, it had to have been destiny, ordained, planned, because that person completes you. I’m …

Sunway Lagoon is promoted as Asia's Best Attraction. After what we have seen it has a lot to live up to. Does it? Genting Highlands - the very first Resort's World, too bad it still looks like that too. But the Chin Swee Temple & the Highlands itself is …

Our visit to Deerland, Kuala Ghanda & Chamang Waterfalls. As I stepped into the warm water, I could not see the bottom. The water was brown, who knew what was in there other than the floating missiles from the elephant? But as I jumped on top of little Al…
