Back from States

Hey there! I was away for close to a month (Jan 31st to Feb 26th). It was my first time to the continent, the country, the state, the city…well I’m pretty much a virgin in that part of the world. Where was I? California, baby! Except for three days in Vegas, Nevada. The trip was…

Most Memorable Travel Experiences of 2013

I am a bad blogger. I haven’t been keeping up with my blog, clearing the emails, update my diary (still pen my thoughts, since 12), paint, draw, read, and the list goes on. I attribute the procrastination and laziness to the overwhelming India trip. It has been weeks but my friend and I are still…

Lost in Transition

The title of this post could be The WORST Donuts, or KLIA Sucks, or Unfriendly Customer Service Officer, or Dirty Airline, but let’s start on a positive note, shall we? KLIA Sucks would be perfect though. Inevitably, flying with Malaysian Airlines means there’s a transit in Kuala Lumpur. After an hour of flight, we arrived in…

Dining in the Dark

Got the chance to visit Singapore Association of the Visually Handicapped (SAVH) to enjoy one of their programmes – Dining in the Dark. It is indeed a unique experience!

Durian Pancake from Four Seasons Durians

Typical Singaporean Breakfast

A food nation, Singapore offers an array of dishes from all over the continents. This is one of the many breakfast meals. I didn’t realise it’s different until a lady commented “interesting”. They come in sets – coffee or tea, toasts (you choose the spread), and soft-boiled eggs. You can find these breakfast sets in kopitiam (hawker…

My 25th Birthday

I’m going to keep this sweet and simple. I’ll try… When I was 17 I wrote birthday letters to myself, for me to read when the clock strikes midnight; for every year, until my 25th birthday. Yes, this year is the last time that I’ll be receiving letters from he 17-year-old Lela. I shall elaborate about…

Chapati Set!

Here I am talking about food again. Indian food in particular. I’ve been craving for Chapati but the only time to have it is during the day, at Tekka Market. Lucky for me, I saw this Chapati set in the menu of Ma Raj Restaurant. I wanted to have tea at Usman Restaurant but I…
