Joyful and Bright Days Ahead!

Aloha friends and I hope you have all had a wonderful start to 2021! I wasn’t up to the pressure of publishing a new year’s post in January, so I decided to debut the first 2021 post on the blog on the day of the Chinese Lunar Year instead!  I have written about lunar year celebrations on the blog before as well. I like exploring and learning about different regions and cultures, and Chinese traditions and stories have always fascinated me. Last year, I had the chance to be in Singapore around this time, and I was blown away by…

20 in 2020!

Unprecedented! The most apt word used to describe 2020. Also the most common word gracing year end reviews published around the world.

There’s a change in the air, the weather is just about right, and who can forget the festivals around the corner with all their lovely traditions and food! …

Looking for Bright Spots in 2020!

Hello there and I do hope you are staying safe and (if it is possible for you) staying in. I promised I would blog more frequently, and over the last few days I have been planning what to write and put out here. But I haven’t really published anything because my regular content around travel and fashion just does not feel right for the times. After all, there is nothing regular about 2020!  I know we are all caught up in this “new normal” which has changed so many aspects of our lives. From realising the value of things we…

Oh, Hello Again!

Hello there, and I do hope you and your loved ones are safe and well! I know I have been MIA for many months now, but I am happy to announce that I am ready to get back to blogging, and this time I intend to be consistent. Before I talk about anything more, I just want to send out a big thanks to those who have stayed, those who are returning and even those who are new and just discovering my content. I welcome you all to my sparkly space! When I started this blog in 2015, I was…
