Mandarin’s House


One of the must-visit places in Macau is the Mandarin’s House or I call it, the Chinese version of Capri’s Villa San Michele. Frankly, to visit a mansion with my surname ‘Zheng’ on it was kinda scary – especially when I came across a picture of all the once breathing Zhengs from 1869, and my cousin laughed out loud saying “Eh Cindy, look! They’re your ancestors!” – I didn’t know how to feel about my existence there and then. I believe there’s always some truth behind a joke, and this might be just it . . .

Taken on the hilly slippery roads of Macau one gloomy day en route to Guia Fortress, we started our journey with unseen Portuguese egg tarts still warm in our tummies. There’s always something about the rain; a love-hate relationship that you just can’t quite figure out, just like the title of this fashion post.  This navy blue one-piece I wore has just the right thickness to keep me warm, yet sexc enough to [...]



Macau was indeed something very extraordinary to me. If I were to exaggerate, we visited more hotels in 1 day than we’ve ever did in our entire lives! – something I never expected from Macau. From one ‘show’ to another, towards the end Sheau Torng was bombarded by a rather grumpy me, “Another hotel? How many shows have you got there in that list!” {Grand Lisboa – a hotel with [...]



To travel Macau in a nutshell, one would require 2 days. It might sound too little, but have my word that two is just nice. To experience a vacation though, of course one could benefit from more. My cousin and I went with the first option and we must say that it was a wise one. Reason being it was raining 70% of the time we were there! – except [...]



If something makes you happy, do more of it. Personally, having the company of my best friends doing the things we love together is definitely at the top of my happy list. At first glance, this post might look like an ad but no, I’m not here to market anything. I’d like to share with you a slice of my sweet Sunday from last weekend when one of my favorite brands, [...]



Many have came to me and asked if I am “very free”. Whenever I question what makes them think so, their reply usually goes, “because I see you reading all the time!”. Just like any relationship that requires effort for bonds to be strengthened, cultivating the habit and love for reading is almost the same. You may be too busy to read every single day, but you can’t be too busy [...]


Ever since I shared my tale of #WHY, my blog received an incredible amount of visitors. While I wasn’t expecting any of that, I think this is a good time while you are still here, to share with you my experience on how to prevent and handle cybercrime that falls under such situation. I know there are some who are concerned if I should have not exposed #WHY’s identity. I actually thought long [...]
