Balinese Massage @ Mandara Spa, Renaissance Kuala Lumpur

We were privileged to be invited to experience the newly unveiled completely restyled West Wings guest rooms at Renaissance Kuala Lumpur Hotel last weekend. I’ll write more about those wonderful new rooms later as there are many pictures and videos I’d love to share with you but haven’t got the time composing them into a story yet. During our staycation here at Renaissance Kuala Lumpur Hotel, I was also treated to a much needed relaxation at Mandara […]

Swiss-Garden Beach Resort, Damai Laut

*VIDEO* During the recent school holidays, we took advantage to travel up to Sitiawan – the place I grew up after my father retired from the Navy. My parents have since moved to Melaka hence I’ve not been back here for almost 20 years. We also made the most out of this trip to spend some precious time being close to nature. We stayed at Swiss-Garden Beach Resort, Damai Laut. A hidden gem; secluded but […]

Tua Pek Kong Temple @ Pasir Panjang, Sitiawan

I grew up in Sitiawan but left to KL since college. It has been 20 years since I last stepped foot here. We were finally back in Sitiawan last Sunday. Words can’t describe how delighted I was to finally walk on the ground that shaped me to be who I am today. These two are my former classmates. I surprised one of them at his coffee shop for lunch the moment we arrived Sitiawan. The other guy is […]

Penang’s Latest Children Attraction: Dino Gym @ The TOP, KOMTAR

During the recent school holidays, we made a trip up to Penang. One of the reason we went up is to visit the new Jurassic Research Center at The TOP, KOMTAR. The boys love it there as they got to see their favourite dinosaurs come ‘alive’. Imagine seeing dinosaurs in your books up close and roaring in front of you. That was what they got during our visit there. You can read all about it […]

Golden Sands Resort by Shangri-La, Penang – A Family Friendly Resort

We love Penang. It is only 4 hours drive away from Kuala Lumpur hence it is easily our favourite choice for a short getaway whenever we need a boost of some Vitamin Sea and nice, sandy beaches. We usually stay at Batu Feringgi whenever we go up to Penang as the boys love to spend time playing by the beach. It is no different this school holidays with Golden Sands Resort by Shangri-La being our […]

Penang’s Latest Family Attraction: Jurassic Research Center @ The TOP, KOMTAR

Penang has long been enticing visitors with its beautiful coasts and scrumptious cuisines. This beautiful island welcomes modernity yet at the same time preserves its traditions and old world charm. I remember visiting KOMTAR, the tallest building in Penang when I was little. It has been THAT long ago. Last weekend I found myself back, this time at The TOP, KOMTAR with the boys to visit Jurassic Research Center, one of the latest attractions here. The TOP @ KOMTAR […]

Lexis Hibiscus Port Dickson: A Perfect Family Destination

We went for our first family holiday this year at Lexis Hibiscus, Port Dickson. We have always wanted to come here since their soft launch over a year ago but decided to wait until they are fully completed so that we can fully enjoy their facilities. The first thing I noticed was that they have free WIFI and the coverage is pretty strong throughout the entire resort. Thumbs UP! Before I go into details, here is […]

Kids are King @ Holiday Inn Resort Penang

Batu Ferringhi is one of Penang’s most popular destinations. Its long stretch of soft, white sandy beach is filled with a host of accommodation and dining options. When spoilt for choices, how do you decide? Travelling with kids, the most important factor for us is the convenience and comfort of the boys. Having stayed at numerous Holiday Inn resorts around the globe, we now have them fondly embedded in our hearts. The kids love the Kids […]

Which Flight to Choose from KL to Bali?

Which flight to take from KL to Bali? That is really a tough choice. Initially we wanted to try Air Asia but knowing that it will take 3 hours, I know we have to get food for the kids and us too. So after adding the cost for luggage, FOOD etc, etc… AA is no longer affordable.  Next choice – Malindo. With the rates we got from AA, we can get Malindo’s Business Class promo seats […]

The NEST Hotel, Bali

It has been two weeks since our family trip to Bali. Am already missing Bali tremendously. I can’t believe how affordable it is to hire a private driver to bring us around in Bali. I really enjoyed our leisurely self-customised tour in Bali. It was relaxing as we get to decide where to go according to our own sweet time. You can read all about it here -> Places to visit in Bali for first […]

Bali with Kids: Holiday Inn Resort Bali Benoa

After my sharing of our self-customised Bali itinerary (with price included), many readers have messaged me asking where we stayed. We stayed in two places; the first in a hotel where we spent minimal time as we were out all day sight-seeing and the second at a lovely resort where we hardly leave as it was the kids’ turn to enjoy the holidays. We chose to stay at Nusa Dua area as it is nearby […]

Places to visit in Bali for first timers

We spent 5 days in Bali this school holidays. It was our first time here. Prior to our trip, we took quite some time studying the places of interest in Bali before deciding which one we should go for. I never know Bali is so huge. It was quite tough to narrow down the places of interest we should visit as there are just too many. Although we were in Bali for 5 days, we only […]

Hotel Equatorial Melaka

I was back in Melaka recently for work purposes in town.  As Darling and the boys tagged along, I chose to stay at Hotel Equatorial Melaka as it is situated directly opposite Dataran Pahlawan and is only 500m from Jonker’s Street. At least they can go shopping or sight-seeing while I am at work. Dataran Pahlawan is just across the road from Hotel Equatorial Melaka. Can you see the cheerful and brightly lit trishaws? There […]

South East Asia Buffet Dinner @ J’s Cafe & Restaurant

J’s Cafe & Restaurant serves breakfast, lunch and dinner while Pesto’s is open for lunch and dinner. We saw that their J’s Cafe & Restaurant has different themed dinners every evening and on that Tuesday night were South East Asia Buffet […]

Pesto’s – Italian food on a Thailand beach

During our recent stay at Holiday Inn Resort Mai Khao Beach Phuket, we had dinner once at their Italian restaurant – Pesto’s. We walked by this restaurant countless times as it is located strategically with spectacular views over Mai Khao Beach and the Andaman Sea . It looked so inviting with the gentle sea breeze welcoming us that we made it a point to dine here at least once and we did. Pesto Restaurant Holiday Inn […]

Holiday Inn Resort Mai Khao Beach, Phuket – The Perfect Family Getaway

I love traveling. Darling and I, we traveled the world before starting a family. We still love traveling now though I have to admit when we make our travel plans these days, priority is given to the kids. We will do prior research on activities suitable for the kids to partake, places of interest for the boys and most importantly, food availability for them. That is the reason why our previous trips with the kids had […]

Singapore River Night Cruise

During our recent trip to Singapore, we took the opportunity to bring the boys for the Singapore River Night Cruise. Ethan has been on this cruise before but it was the Day Cruise. This is the boys’ first time on a night cruise. It wasn’t in our plan to go for the cruise actually but as we were taking a leisurely stroll, the boys saw the boat and requested to ride on it. Singapore River […]
