Woohoo I finally visited another theme park in Singapore.
This post is about Adventure Cove Waterpark in Sentosa. If you have never heard of the park, it’s understandable. It’s less popular than its sisters, Universal Studios Singapore and SEA Aquarium. But it’s totally different from USS or the aquarium. So, what is Adventure Cove again? Well, it’s a water theme park with slides, rides, and so many more exciting stuff. I can’t wait to write all about them! Let’s start! Read More
I can’t remember exactly how many times I’ve visited Penang. Maybe 6? Or more? But I remember vividly my first visit in 2003 as well as my latest visit to this city in 2017. During the 14-year gap, A LOT has changed. Including my feeling.
I had to admit, there were many times during that 14-year gap when I felt like Penang was overrated, extremely overrated. But I guess I’ve come full circle. During my latest visit to Penang, I asked myself, “Why do I only realise now that I like Penang so much?” If I’m a songwriter, I’d probably write a love song for Penang.
But since I like to write from my heart, I’ll wax poetic about why Penang is a special place for me.
Hey there! Happy birthday!
Congrats for finally turning 21! You’re in your fourth and final year in university now, getting ready to gear up for your final semester before entering the workforce. Isn’t it such a big milestone to turn 21? You finally get to call yourself an adult! You’ll be able to drink legally anywhere in the world.
Anyway, you surely danced yourself into 21 with grace, didn’t you? You just came back from Bali a few days ago with your best pals. There, you climbed the first mountain in your life, the Mount Batur. And today, your best friends celebrated your birthday in the university dorm. It was a perfect birthday.
I bet you’re excited about turning 21, yet scared of the future at the same time. I know, I’ve been there. That is why I’m writing a letter to you, to tell you 30 things that I learned over the past 9 years. Read More
If you are that last-minute guy/gal who always arrive at the airport just in time before the check-in counter closes, I recommend that you arrive much earlier if you’re flying out from Changi Airport. I’ll tell you why. There are SO many things to do, see and eat in Changi Airport! And don’t worry if you’re on a tight budget. The most awesome places in Changi Airport are free anyway!
Because I’m an ambitious traveller, I did what I should do. I spent a lot of time at the airport, trying to compile an enormous list of things to do in Changi Airport. The list is divided into 2 main categories: Free things to do and see, and things that require money. It also includes those places located at Transit Area (i.e. inside departure gate where only flying passengers are allowed to enter) and Public Area (i.e. area where everyone can access, regardless whether they’re flying or not).

Hidden in the deep east, Wild Wild Wet may not be as famous as Adventure Cove in Sentosa. Wild Wild Wet is probably more well-known to locals rather than tourists. I’ve visited Wild Wild Wet a couple of times before. My latest visit was during my staycation at D’Resort this year, and we were thrilled to find new slides! If you’re planning to visit Wild Wild Wet, here are 10 things you should know before visiting. Read More
What do you do when you desperately need a change of scenery yet can only take 1 or 2 days off from work? Have a staycation! To be honest, this is the first time I have a real staycation experience. For me, a real staycation is the one where I do not leave the hotel compound at all during my stay. Wouldn’t it be boring to spend all your time at the resort? Not really! I will share about how we spent time in D’Resort @ Downtown East during our 2-night stay. Read More
One of the first things that came to our mind when planning for this trip was: what to see and do in Luang Prabang? With so many choices and options, I have narrowed them down to only 12 things you should do when you visit Luang Prabang. This list is compiled based on my personal experience and consists of places that I highly recommend visiting. Read More
Honestly, there are probably too many waterfalls in Luang Prabang! There are Kuang Si, Tad Sae, and Tad Thong. With our limited time and unlimited curiosity, we decided to visit only one waterfall during this trip. It was Kuang Si Waterfalls, no doubt! Read More
We were so lucky that our trip to Luang Prabang coincided with the Boun Lai Heua Fai Festival. We had no idea about this festival when we booked the flight ticket. We have never attended any festivals when we travel overseas, so this experience is truly one of a kind for us. Read More
