Cycling By Paddy Fields at Sekinchan

On Christmas Day this year, RK and I went for a day trip to Sekinchan with 9 of his nephews and nieces. Yes, 9 aged 1 to 11 years old. I don’t think I’ve travelled with this many kids before so I didn’t know what to expect. Definitely didn’t expect to go cycling because I wore a dress! Didn’t really come to my mind that cycling at Sekinchan by paddy fields was a thing in our tropical weather.

Penang Food Journal Dec 2017

Over the weekend, RK and I went to Penang for his friends’ wedding. We didn’t plan where we were going to visit or eat during the trip because we were travelling with a Penangite. Definitely expected the local to recommend places in Penang. Recommend he did.

We ended up eating local food that I want to pen down because I noticed I had trouble remembering Penang food I tried in past visits, just because there were too many! I kept going, “Was it Penang where we ate this roti bakar under a big tree?“, “…some fresh healthy bread that your sister said was good?“, “…thick roti canai like Terengganu’s?“, etc. Continue reading Penang Food Journal Dec 2017

Best of Malacca Weekend Trip With Friends

One of the long weekends in June, I went to Malacca in a group of 6-8 for a 3D2N trip. Two nights in Malacca? Really? Having been to Malacca at least 6 times in the past 10 years, many would wonder if I’d find anything interesting. Of course I did. In fact, the 3 days didn’t feel long at all.

Day Trip to Carey Island, Jugra, Banting & Jenjarom

RK and I sometimes like to go on road trips because he likes driving around while I like roaming around. It’s normally a day trip with on-the-go itinerary (read: no itinerary), like the ones we did to Malacca, Ipoh, Tanjung Sepat, Sekinchan and Bukit Tinggi. At the back of my mind, I’ve always wanted to visit the Mah Meri in Carey Island and we were finally persuaded to go after reading this full-day itinerary blog post on

We only missed one location in the reference itinerary and added our own along the way. It ended up being a day trip to Carey Island, Jugra, Banting and Jenjarom within 6 hours, excluding drive time to and fro home in Klang. Sounded a lot but some were really quick stops so it can be replicated easily.

Day Trip to Malacca

Two weeks ago, RK and myself just felt like work stress was too much to handle. One fine morning, he randomly suggested a day trip to Malacca to “runaway from stress”. With no itinerary at all, we woke up when we woke up and drove to Malacca for our “runaway” =)

Random weekend getaway to random places in Malacca. Stopping wherever we stumble upon. Where should we stop next? ☺

Day Trip to Ipoh

Mei Er came home from the United States with her American boyfriend (Dan) so we decided to go for a roadtrip to explore local food and places of attraction as a cultural exposure and experience for him. And we have chosen: Ipoh!

I volunteered to plan the trip only to plan it at midnight before our trip. Hehe. #lastminute. But I thought it turned out great even though I only took an hour to plan half asleep. And so I shall share the plan too to benefit people who have been asking about the places that shared on my Instagram and Facebook!
