No words, just excitement. This July I will embark on a trip of a lifetime.
If every single person on the planet were given the opportunity to travel around the world, I believe they would have answered ‘yes’ without the slightest doubt. Each individual, however, has his/h...

West Bali National Park's lush forests are home to a wide array of endangered animals, both on land and at sea. This is the place to go to feel how good it is to reconnect with nature and to understand what a healthy environment can provide us, so we won't take Mother Nature for granted.
The intense sweet and faintly zesty redolence of lush forest instantly permeated the air as I opened the car window. The deep, earthy scent of the dirt road augmented the complex chemicals in the a...

Bandung was the city where I spent my college years, where I started living on my own, away from the comfort of home. When I returned a few months ago some things had changed, but many remained the same as I remembered them.
Asia, late 19th century. The long-contending British and Dutch colonial forces have by now settled on their respective colonies. The British realm in this part of the world was unrivaled, straddlin...

Three communities, one melting pot. How Singapore's Chinese, Indian, and Malay enclaves provide a vibrant multicultural backdrop in a city better-known for its ultramodern architecture.
Multi-tiered pastel-colored shophouses lined the narrow alleys of Singapore’s Chinatown. Every turn revealed a lively street culinary scene with food carts and restaurants serving a wide array of C...

Sometimes we have to close our guide books and forget about all those online travel references to find a very special place when we travel. For me it was my driver's observation on my propensity to take images of detailed stone and wood carvings which led him to suggesting this Balinese temple to me. It's not a big pura, but it certainly is one of the most charming I've ever seen.
We only had 3 hours left before we had to be at the airport in Bali to catch the flight back to Jakarta. But after watching the Barong performance at Batubulan and having visited some of eastern Ba...

It has been an amazing year and this is my last blog post in 2014: a flashback to the places I went. Apparently all them are... islands! Hence the title. Enjoy!
Tempus fugit, where has the time gone? It feels to me that my second trip to Hong Kong was just a month ago. But the truth is it was back in late January, the first of a series of trips this year. ...

Despite the annual 'trash season', Menjangan Island's marine life was truly an indisputable beauty. Glad I made the decision to rent an underwater camera just before setting off for the snorkeling sites.
He plunged into the water and darted in front of us, the effortless movements of his slender body a telltale of his affinity to the ocean. He looked around, scanning the corals beneath him, and not...

Bali Starling's intriguing appearance and comical demeanor are fun to watch, but they're also the reasons why its population was dwindling in the wild. Thanks to successful breeding programs, extinction is now a distant prospect for these amazing winged-creatures.
Tiny palm-sized winged creatures hopped gleefully among curious visitors. Each bearing a navy blue mask around the eyes, a contrasting ribbon amid its cotton white feathers. Bedazzled eyes followed...

When you go to see the Kecak dance at Uluwatu, what do you actually expect to see? The sunset? The temple? The monkeys? Or the reenactment of one of the greatest Hindu epics? Whatever you choose make sure to pay some respect to the dancers.
The sun starts to slip into the horizon, slowly giving way for night to crawl in. The blue skies turn orange, then red, and purple before darkness takes over. Meanwhile under the velvet sky a grote...

Planning to go to Bali but can only think of the usual dishes? Try authentic Balinese cuisines with the freshest of produce, herbs and spices.
Bali lures people from all over the world to come and see its prolific rice terraces, turquoise beaches, rich marine life, and active volcanoes. Also for its unique cultural scenes mostly exclusive...

One of the most well-known places on Hong Kong island to escape from the typical hustle and bustle of the island's north. Plus, a lot of history to learn about.
From Hong Kong Island’s heavily-indented southern coastline a sleepy town called us in on a chilly winter night. The double-decker bus that we took meandered through winding, narrow roads, dimly li...

Many people see it as a haunted building, but a few (but growing) number of people visit Lawang Sewu for its history and architectural beauty. Hopes run high for the Dutch colonial building to see better days in the future.
A woman with long black hair wearing plain, white long cloth appeared, but her eyes looked menacing, her skin so pale, and her feet not visible. A man waved to the infrared camera, signaling his de...
