I have been busy lately but here’s a heads up if you are traveling to Petaling Jaya in Malaysia.

Rainy Days and Sundays Always Makes Me Smile!

Life at large is about finding equilibrium between work and play, joy and sorrow. There is no guarantee that problems will go away but having family and caring friends around us let us know that we are not alone when we are down.

Mas Bowoo Near Mall Malioboro In Yogyakarta

Almost all our lunch were consumed in the bus in between journeys to the different locations for our photography sessions. This was the second trip (first experience was *Bromo) I had food served this way.

Pantai Glagah – Glagah Beach (Yogyakarta)

Our second and third day’s itinerary were modified a little so instead of going to Goa Jomblang, we headed for Pantai Glagah for sunset.

Entrancing Borobudur!

When I was in school, Borobudur Temple was considered one of the 7 wonders of the world. Some say this ancient site is no longer in the new 7 wonders of the world’s list. As a child learning history of Southeast Asia back then, I was awed but never thought that one day, I would … Continue reading

Wow! I didn’t expect a 2-day-1-night trip to span over 7 days of blog posting but there’s just too much I want to share, like the unblemished simple-styled yet tasty food and the pulchritudinous landscapes of Sungei Lembing, an old tin mining town, that has in recent years become an exciting tourist destination for Malaysians … Continue reading

Sungei Lembing Trip – Part 6

Did you noticed that I spelled Sungei with an “e” when it should be Sungai with an “a” ? I guess you can tell if a person’s from Singapore or Malaysia just by its spelling. It should be Sungai Lembing as I found out. In bahasa Melayu (Malay language), sungai means river and lembing means … Continue reading

Sungei Lembing Trip – Part 5

When I was cursing complaining of my ill fate of having to climb in Mt. Bromo, my friends who had visited Panorama Hill warned of my impending trip to Sungei Lembing. The steps are 3 times more than Mt. Bromo even though the latter is higher and if you think Mt. Bromo is tough wait till … Continue reading
