Fly to Hua Hin direct from Kuala Lumpur

We spent a week in Hua Hin during the recent school holidays. I have always wanted to go to Hua Hin but back then it was such a hassle as we had to fly to Bangkok and then take a bus or train to Hua Hin as there were no direct flight from Kuala Lumpur to Hua Hin previously until June this year.  When I heard AirAsia launched a new route to Hua Hin in […]

Vana Nava Water Jungle | Hua Hin | Thailand

During our recent trip to Thailand’s most beloved resort town of Hua Hin, one of the highlight was to experience Vana Nava Water Jungle. The name “Vana Nava” comes from ancient Sanskrit. VANA means jungle/forest and NAVA means sea boat which represents the seaside city of Hua Hin. It is Asia’s First Water Jungle as well as the first ecologically aware community water park in the region. Vana Nava Water Jungle literally transformed an empty […]

Things to do and complete itinerary for Lost World of Tambun

Lost World of Tambun. I hear this name often thinking it is just another dry and wet park which we already have so many in Malaysia hence I never go out of my way to plan a trip here until recently. I was planning a local getaway for the boys for the week-long school holidays and the Daddy suggested going up North. I narrowed down our option to either Penang or Ipoh and the Daddy […]

The Luminous Forest of Tambun’s Lost World

Deep within Tambun’s Lost World lies a magical Luminous Forest; an enchanted tribal village. Imagine a life in a magical wonderland where friendly creatures come out to play when night falls. Beating of the drums breaks the silence of the night. Our heartbeat syncs with the drum at a fluttering pace as we take our first step into this enchanted forest. It feels like we are about to enter a tribal village with a story […]

October Japanese Cuisine, Johor Bahru

It’s the festive season and almost everyone I know is busy holidaying somewhere. We just got back from a great getaway too. We went to this place where cherry blossoms is in full bloom. It’s so beautiful that we can’t resist but to take a family picture under the alluring sakura arch. Bright cherry blossoms and the rustle of bamboo give such a serene ambiance to this location. I believe I could have tricked a handful of […]

Wat Arun Temple in Bangkok

On our second day in Bangkok, we planned to visit the Grand Palace. The hotel concierge helped us get a taxi and specifically informed the driver to send us to the Grand Palace but as soon as we started our journey, the taxi driver told us that we will need to walk a bit to the Grand Palace as vehicles are not allowed into the area due to the daily prayers (during the mourning period) after […]
