Maldives

Our flight from Greece to the Maldives was an interesting one. You know the kind of feeling you get when your vacation in one place has ended and you take a flight, usually to go home? Well, it was REALLY NICE to fly from one vacation to another and not think about the end of […]

Santorini, Greece

Our next stop was Santorini and it felt amazing, just to be in the place you see in postcards that you’ve wanted to visit all your life. The island did not disappoint. In fact, it was exactly like what you see in postcards… and more! There’s a certain kind of vibe on the island. Maybe […]

Athens, Greece

My honeymoon travel blog posts are way overdue but hey, better late than never! Our first stop was Athens, Greece. We arrived right in the midst of all the “action” (demonstrations held in protest against austerity measures imposed by the Government due to the economic crisis). Coincidentally the hotel we booked was right where all […]

Thoughts on Weddings and being a Bride!

Having shot at least 200 weddings since I started FIFOTO back in 2005, it was finally my turn to be on the other side of the lens and boy I must say, the feeling and experience is exactly that – the complete “other side” of things. Being a wedding photographer and having shot so many […]

The Banjaran

The Banjaran

Posted by on Aug 18, 2012 in Personal | No Comments

It’s been more than a year since our last romantic weekend getaway so we planned one! Destination… Banjaran Hotsprings Retreat in Ipoh. A short 2-hr drive away from KL and just a few kilometers off the north-south highway, the place is easy to find. We arrived on Friday. The place is tucked away, nestled in […]

It’s been a long time since I had a girly girl weekend so I was totally looking forward to our relaxing beach getaway with my 2 good friends whom I’ve known since primary school, Cat & Juliet who came in to KL from Singapore the night before. Having been to the lovely Pangkor Laut Resort […]

USA 2011!!!

Posted by on Apr 6, 2011 in Personal, travel | 3 Comments

2011 and it couldn’t come by any sooner for my routine trip to the US. In the past 6 years, it seems like a routine schedule of me having to  return to the States every two years, which I’m definitely not complaining about! This time, it was for Rita’s wedding! Pure play, no work! YAY! […]

Furniture Shopping in Foshan!

Furniture Shopping in Foshan!

Posted by on Mar 10, 2011 in just for fun, Personal, travel | 20 Comments

The last time I was in Guangzhou was in October when I went shopping for bathroom accessories and household fittings. That was a nightmare, not because of the language barrier (I speak “poor” Mandarin but could get by perfectly fine, especially with Anny who was there to help me translate) or anything else but poorly […]

Christmas in Seoul!!!

Christmas in Seoul!!!

Posted by on Jan 10, 2011 in Personal, travel | 3 Comments

Despite the North-South Korea political tensions, and after unsuccessful attempts in trying to make last minute backup plans for Christmas, we headed to Seoul! Our plane landed early. The journey from the airport reminded me a lot of Detroit – cold and industrial. In fact, for the next few days to follow, a lot of […]

Our BAT adventure started on Merdeka day when we met William, BAT Malaysia at the airport. 14 hours of flight time and 3 hours of transit later, we found ourselves in the land of watches – Geneva. Upon arrival at the airport, there were no less than 20 watch ads plastered along the corridors of […]

Safety First!

Safety First!

Posted by on Jul 5, 2010 in just for fun, Personal | 8 Comments

One would think that having been the Chairperson of the Safety and Wellness committee and the Department rep for KLOSHC during my Exxon days, I’d have safety drilled into my head. I guess after 5 years of not being in that safety mindset, and no serious injuries, I became complacent and careless. My priority at […]

The Standard Chartered Marathon was held in Kuala Lumpur last Sunday. Ming & I and quite a number of my friends took part in the 10km race. This was my 2nd time taking part in a 10km run and this time, I ran “For a Cause” and managed to raise RM2293 for the Malaysian Association […]

Happy Happy Wednesday! I don’t know about you but mid-week never felt so great! Apart from the very good start to my morning, I’m totally looking forward to my jog in the park, (the one I had to postpone two days in a row due to bad weather) and am super excited about Ming’s belated […]

Gong xi gong xi! It’s Chinese New Year and hopefully after this long week’s break, I’ll spring back into work mode and go full steam! (yes, I admit it, I’ve been on holiday mode since Christmas!) As with most my CNYs, I spent a lot of time traveling. My first two days of CNY were […]

My MBA Graduation Ceremony!

Sometimes your head pulls you in a thousand different directions and our hearts tell you something else, you feel as if you’re just gonna explode. As I dip (more of a plunge) into deeper and unknown waters, i’m learning, adapting, changing, accomodating. Change is always a good thing and I’m putting on my positive fedora […]

Bam-Bam needs your LOVIN’ !!!

Posted by on Jan 13, 2010 in just for fun, Personal | 11 Comments

The past few days have been tough for me. Last weekend, I picked Bam-Bam up from Penang and noticed she kept “saluting” (lifting her front left paw over her ears, as if giving you a high-5) with her front left paw and kept tripping every now and then when she walked. Mom attributed the slipping […]

If there are 2 things MAS can do really well, it’s satay and nasi lemak. Nothing beats going to sleep eating satay and having nasi lemak for breakfast in true blue Malaysian style. So… After 10 fantastic days in Melbourne, I’m finally back to the land of dull, hazy skies, slow internet and traffic jam! […]

At the risk of sounding like a total groupie (which I really am not!)… it’s a very special and happy day for me and I’m feeling like a million bucks with this photo taken with Will.I.am of Black Eyed Peas and having the honor of his and Apl.de.ap’s signature on my back!!!! Many thanks to […]

Remembering Michael Jackson

Today, the world has loss someone great. It was shocking to find out the devastating news first thing this morning that the King of Pop died from a cardiac arrest at age 50. Is this true? Am I dreaming? Michael Jackson has passed away? No way!!! I turned to CNN and couldn’t believe what I […]
