Luang Prabang by Foot

To experience Luang Prabang thoroughly, one will need at least two days. While some may argue it’s too little, I find it compact and just right – perfect for a neat getaway. Upon arrival on the first day, I suggest to be gentle with your itinerary and tackle the Top 5 Things To Do In Luang Prabang first. Kuang Si waterfall is the main attraction, so it’s good to tick […]

Unaware of my surroundings 90% of the time, I might come off as ‘arrogant’ more often than not. Truth is, I am living in my own world too much for my own good. It got so alarming to a point where Melody, an ex-colleague of mine, told me that I looked her right in the eyes and just walked away! As a result, she was afraid to say hi; fearing that […]

Tat Bat

Witnesssing Tat Bat, also known as ‘Monk’s Possessions’ is one of the most unforgettable experiences when I was traveling Luang Prabang. There’s something about making a conscious decision to rise before the sun and be part of a holy morning ritual like this that stirs an awakening in one’s self – internally, especially when waiting in the cold. Later I learned from a well-versed taxi driver that every man in Laos will […]

I could be in my car right now stuck in KL traffic or loading a list of emails at work, but I am not. I am here. I am now. And its all that matters. I close my eyes to feel the growing contentment […]

Kuang Si Waterfall

Just like Cambodia, when it comes to Laos, the fun star is not the capital but Siem Reap (second post here), and Luang Prabang. Tucked deep in the mentioned latter, nestles a gorgeous waterfall named Kuang Si, where countless jaw-dropping cascades form baby blue pools of all sizes to suit your heart’s desire. We took a tuk-tuk trip via the village that broke and healed my heart, passing by thirsty trees […]

One of my favorite questions to ask people is what they would do if they had 5 million dollars. Most of the time, the first answer I receive would be: “But 5 million is not enough wor. Very fast finish one leh!” Hearing that, I gladly upgrade the question to 10 million. “What would you do with 10 million dollars then? Remember: You can do aaanyyythinggg.” The answer that follows […]
