Earlier in December, I was offered by Royal Brunei Airlines and Sarawak Tourism Board for a weekend away in Kuching, Sarawak. Kuching is the capital city of Sarawak and as the last time I was there I was barely out of diapers, I accepted the sponsorship with some trepidation – siuk kan? Apa ada? Macam Miri kah? Happening kah sana atu?Continue reading →
Every year I look forward to a getaway with my best friends. It is usually a whirlwind holiday, filled with our incessant laughter terrorizing small, quiet paradises and its inhabitants.
This year we decided on going back to our favorite country (Philippines), smack dab in the middle of typhoon season, and visit the much hyped Palawan Islands!
Read on to check out our itinerary!
It’s a big week for me and my horror obsession 😂 – two nights in a row at the cinema!
Two different cinemas, two different movies and this time it’s a much awaited sequel from The Conjuring universe, The Nun!
I don’t know why I like to torture myself.
So if you wanna read my opinion and review of The Nun, see below – as usual SPOILERS AHEAD!
You know I love horror movies and of course I must watch the sequel to Munafik!
Syamsul Yusof made a name for himself with Khurafat, a movie that in my opinion really turned around the Malaysian movie industry.
Spoilers ahead!!! Continue reading →
I just came back from one of my favouritest countries in the world – Japan.
This was my third visit – I’ve visited Tokyo, Fukushima, Sendai before and now on this trip I visited Tokyo, Kyoto and Nagoya. I generally don’t visit a country many times UNLESS I really love it haha.
When mentioning Japan, everyone thinks of how expensive it is but I honestly feel it’s comparable to Singapore – and I also think London is still way more expensive considering when I went there I didn’t even stay in a hotel!
Anyway, airfares, accommodation, transport and WIFI all in for under BND1800 – check it out below!
I was 20 years old when Dain Said’s Dukun first made its rounds in the Malaysian horror scene. The fabulous Umie Aida (now Datin Paduka), playing the role of a dukun, in a movie loosely based on the high profile murders involving Mona Fandey and politician Dato Mazlan Idris.
As a society that loves gossip and intrigue, this movie is GOLD.
Sadly, it was not released 12 years ago. It waited 12 years to stew, embroiled in censorship and sensitivity, and finally today, barutah we get to see!
I completely understand the need for the ban. The topic bears likeness to a case that gripped Malaysia, and Brunei (even though I was so young that time), by the sheer horror. I remember as a child reading the details of the gruesome murder. I don’t believe the family of all involved would be thrilled now the case is yet again the du jour sensational topic of the moment.
However, I am here to talk about: is the movie worth the 12 year hype? Spoilers ahead.
While Beijing is the capital of China, full of culture and wonderful history, Shanghai is the modern, cosmopolitan and progressive counterpart.
Being the most populous city in the WORLD, before coming I had a few ideas on what it can be like – a big, sprawling metropolis with a lot of people.
Being there however, I realise how exciting a city Shanghai is, how promising a life there can be and how lucky are the people ensconced in its embrace.
