Zoo Negara

I am finally back in Paris after a two weeks jammed packed holiday in Malaysia. We visited Zoo Negara with the kids. We have talked about this for a while now ever since the Panda’s were welcomed to the National Zoo but never made the effort to visit it. The morning started with a drizzle […]

Sum 41 – In To Deep

A band that originated from Ontario Canada during the era of Punk Rock. Sum 41 was the time when I grew to like the genre from similar acts like Blink 182, Good Charlotte, Simple Plan & Bowling For Soup. I am surprised that the band is still going strong and outgrowing their teenage years. I […]

Musée de l’Orangerie

It features 8 Monet’s painting of Waterlilies in a pond in two oval shaped rooms. The large paintings were gifted to the state by Monet. The room feels like a perfect place for […]

Our Lady Peace – Somewhere Out There

This song brings back memories of my time in college when I had two canadians intern in the university. They didn’t necessarily introduced me to the band (MTV did!) but I remembered it was the same time. I am sure we had photo somewhere of us celebrating Canadian day together. Well, continuing with my theme […]

Upon arrival, we join the growing queue according to our time slot. Upon passing security checks, we were welcomed in […]

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. […]

Dutch Clogs Museum

We were back to Amsterdam over the weekend. The city that I lived in for over 2.5 years. This time we went back with our kids. We visited Zaanse Schans as our first stop. I came to know of this place in my early days of my career when my Dutch boss hosted me over […]
