Purpose isn’t found in a day.  Sometimes it helps to breathe, take a step back,  and reflect on what's your reason for getting up in the morning.  Is it a chance to see the sun rise, wrap your arms around a loved one,  to seize the day (cause each day is a gift!),  the promise of good coffee, or to see what challenges the day will bring?
I realise it has been a good 6 month pass since I ever last blog. What have I been doing for this past 6 months?
Still travelling as usual, my fav hobbies =p Countdown in Gold Coast, a last min yolo trip to NPPY to rock climb, to the Asia's most happiest place Bhutan and last recent one in May to climb at  Long Dong and travel around Taiwan with family.
As for work, got promoted this May as ANC.  It's a "everyone expected" promotion and everyone sees that and  tell you that you can do it, you will make it. I don't wish for all this, I just want a nice working environment with  no two faces, no politics, no screaming or shouting anywhere. It&#…

A tiny country located in the Himalaya mountains, rule by a benevolent king. First coined as the Gross National Happiness country in Asia. And this happiest place in the world is calling my name.
Bhutan, a place where deep spiritual belief is enmeshed in all aspect of daily life. As the place soars over Bhutan, the entire Himalaya panorama began to slowly unveil  itself like a beautiful face of a women, oh so glorious. And it appeared as though some  deity was pouring milk over the majestic mountains.


And so here I stand before the glorious fortress, the Blue-eyed Buddha, the magnificent monasteries and the kingdom of mountain peaks. Opting to do the trek in Bhutan  is tough but it put life back into perspective and that is good for my soul.  Just as I was enjoying so much holding onto the inner peace, in a blink with a shed of tear, the time has finally come. I felt like I've fallen to the modern earth from heaven.
Bhutan, you have shown me that it is possible to live in a simpl…

There is always a first time. Climbing out of the comfort zone into the real rocks  world with all the veteran climbers. It was really an eye opening. Started off with the zipped line across the river to get to the river main wall, my fear gets the better of me again when I couldn't catch the rope and goes zipping back which ended up I have to pull myself through the zip-line cable to get over and there is  my first bruise when I haven even start climbing. Kudos to my first adventure.
The wall was magnificent (allright, I guess I haven seen the real big wall out there) hence I was so excited for my climb. 


The names of each individual walls are so quirky. You get to see "a birth canal", you get to "climb inside me", you get to "turn left then turn right" and into the wild. There is still so much out there. And all of them have different starting point.  Some, you just have to start from the inside of a rock climbing outwards and some  just need you to be a monkey…

2018, you taught me so much.

It was chock full of lessons and a year full of breakthroughs.
Remember, forget,  forgive,  bring those memories back to life
As 2018 comes to an end....


I hope you leave behind the doubts, the lack of confidence and negative voice in your head.... I hope you leave behind the guilt you feel for choosing that you want even if it doesn't align with other's wishes.... I hope you leave behind the hates that resides in your heart... I hope you leave behind the things tha

Portraits of Pakistani.

Salam! سلام
The confusion existed due the lack of a clear boundary – geographically, geopolitical, socio-culturally, economically or historically – between South Asia and other parts of Asia, especially the Middle East and Southeast Asia. Therefore Pakistan falls under the South Asia constituent country and it is my 1st South Asia visit. Thank god for my friend who has been backpacking there for years hence I decided to visit her and the country that she has been raving about - Pakistan! Travelling in Pakistan is a truly unique experience one can never forget, it can be frustrating, enlightening and eye opening but more often than not, surprising!!! To the country of unexpected events when you cant plan much but to follow the mother nature. From the endless land slide, to rocks falling, the heart fainted road track in the mountain and time consuming at every police check point to new local friends and lastly the paradise where you want to spend ages but you realise that nothing will go a…
