Free View of the City from Amsterdam’s Public Library

We had a morning to kill and the weather wasn’t great. I googled for free activities and found out that the public library is free entry and have a cafe on one of the highest floor and provides a good view of the city. It is only a short walk from the Central Station and […]

Stefanie Sun – Turbo

This time on tracks that stuck with me, it is a song by Singaporean Singer & Songwriter Stefanie Sun. She released her debut album in 2000 and went on to win numerous awards. She is popular in Southeast Asia and Greater China. It gives me flashbacks of college days where a songwriter was my collegemate. […]

She’s Done It!

Michelle Yeoh just created history by being the first Malaysian to win an Oscar for Best Actress. I was beaming with pride for being a fellow Malaysian. I share the joy as growing up we always thought that the centre stage was always reserved for the few. Grewing up, I didn’t know that Michelle Yeoh […]
