The greatest hotels in the world Okay, one of my ultimate pet peeves is when people go on holiday to a fabulous country and all they want to do is stay in the hotel room. If I wanted to eat my weight in junk food and watch movies all day, I'd be back home. That was until I saw these hotels. I have now made it my life's mission to visit all of them and spend my entire stay within their glorious walls. It'll be a nice change seeing as I'm going to be living in the streets because I...Last modified on
The Waters Less Swam In See this post on the "12 Clearest Waters in the Philippines to Swim In" the way it was originally published on TheSmartLocal.com. If you're like me then you love the ocean.

Honestly, the next time you want to plan a beach vacation, ditch the...Last modified on

Up, Up and Away to Bali We Go! We did it. We managed to 'YOLO' our virgin trip to Bali because as they always say, spontaneity makes everything much more fun. We were so looking forward to this trip and I'm super grateful for the company of Si Min who made everything less daunting to go through. Two and a half hours in the air from Singapore passed quickly, especially since we were so busy tasting the yummy meals that AirAsia had provided us with. Before we knew it, we had touched down in Denpasar, Bali and that's when our...Last modified on
Our AirAsia Trip To Bali Let me get this straight - I am not a fan of flying. Don't get me wrong, I love travelling but I'm not the kind of person who can sit still in an airplane for more than an hour. But if there's another thing I dislike more than flying, it's plane food. I've had extremely bad experience with plane food in the past and the thought of having to consume it makes me shudder. Despite my past accounts, I've heard rave reviews about AirAsia's revamped inflight meals and was super excited to try it especially...Last modified on
2 Days 1 Night in Bangkok with AirAsia! We survived. We ate, we shopped, we did our full body Thai massages - and we witnessed the much talked about political demonstrations that have wrought Bangkok in chaos. Although this was my 5th/6th time to Bangkok and the shortest trip ever, I still thoroughly enjoyed myself in the short time there. Thankful too that I had Nicole with me, who made such good company! Up up in the air we go - onboard AirAsia! For someone like me who gets air sick very easily, I swear I was totally relieved that...Last modified on
I wish I was Superman. I mean the perks are mad obvious right. I am a sexy sexy journalist by day who can pry information out of terrorist with my curly swirl and I am a not-well-disguised red and blue super star by night. But best of all - I would be able to fly. I would be able to go tax free from country to country, spreading the fashion of red-and-blue (my fave combo) and I can treat all the clouds in my way as pillows for my atas super head. We can't all be Superman, but we all can...Last modified on
