I spent the last 3 weeks backpacking around South Island, New Zealand. It is such a beautiful country with fresh clean air and miles and miles of National parks. The scenery changes at every corner from rolling green hills to harsh and wild rocky mountains. At night the skies are clear and filled with stars. The blue skies and blue lakes and sea makes it so easy to wake up to every morning. One thing I did not realise is that there are hardly any animals in New Zealand. There are no dangerous predators insects or reptiles that will eat you except maybe the great white shark if you go too far off into the ocean.

It’s been an awesome start to my New Year. I really enjoyed my break. I am back now…:)

Wishing my friends Selamat Hari Raya. Eid Mubarak.

Wishing all my Muslim friends Selamat Hari Raya and Eid Mubarak. Sketch of the day in my moleskine art journal is of the traditional woven ketupat. Ketupat is made with rice or glutinous and woven with palm leaf and eaten as a side dish. It is also used as raya decorations in malaysia. Mohon maaf bantin dan zahir. Forgive my physical and emotional wrongdoings. Eid Mubarak.

Paradise found Day 3

New years day at koh lanta was spent just chilling on the beach as one should! It was a Bulanlifestyle kind of day 🙂

Paradise found Day 1

Sawadeeka. I just arrived in koh lanta in Thailand. It took me a total of 13 hours from Penang to koh lanta. From one island to another via 3 minivans, a border crossing, 2 ferries and did I mention I got dumped by the side of the highway cos the driver decided he was taking me to where I needed to go but luckily I managed to get another minivan heading to the correct destination. I had to pay extra but now that I am here it was well worth the adventure.

First thing my all time favourite which is roti nutella.  Then a pineapple juice.  My hut is 50ft from the beach.  I cant ask for more. Looking forward to seeing it in the day time.

It’s getting close to Christmas and I’m starting to feel festive. This explains my christmas tree doodle today.

I’m going to start unwinding and get ready for the holidays! I can’t wait. What are you doing for Christmas?

Falling in love with Bali all over again

I spent a week in Bali. I had previously fallen out of love with Bali and hadn’t been back in 3 years but I wanted to go surf so I made a trip there last week. I stayed in Canggu and Uluwatu this time round, avoiding Seminyak and Petitenget areas where I used to always stay because it is where the great restaurants and cool bars are located but it has become really commercial over the years and super crowded with the worse traffic. I decided to stop going there. Canggu on the other hand is simple still, quiet with enough good restaurants to keep my happy. Uluwatu down south is a bit harsher and arid. I don’t like it as much but the surf there is good.

When the time is right, I am moving there. I have fallen in love with Bali all over again 🙂
