Anantara Layan Resort, Phuket

It has been 2 years since my last post as I have been very busy work and other stuff. I recently travelled to Phuket and stayed in one of my favourite resorts, Anantara Layan Resort. The resort is located at northern part of the island, 20 minutes drive form the airport. Spent 5 days in this resort, in Beach Access Pool Villa and Beachfront Villas, also with pool. If you travel with a small family (2-3 pax), the beach access villa is sufficient in my opinion. The beachfront villa is bigger, and the tv room is detached from the main room although there is also TV in the main room. This is one of my most memorable travel so I strongly recommend this resort. Here are some photos:

Patong is 40 minutes drive from the resort and you can choose to hire private or shared tour to explore Phuket which offer attractions such as Brid Park, Elephant Sanctuary and Ride, Premium Outlet Mall etc.

Note: I don’t have a lot of shareable photos here…sorry guys..

Casa del Rio, Melaka

I personally think that this is one of the best hotel in Melaka. It made me feel at home and the room decor is fantastic. Also the hotel is near the famous Jonker Street and the clock tower. I don’t have many photos but here you go

Philea Resort, Ayer Keroh, Melaka

It has been a long time since I last posted as I have been very busy with works. I had a break a couple of months ago and decided to go to Melaka again. This time I stayed at pine-themed resort just off North South Highway. I do feel the lighting in the room is a bit dim but maybe it’s because of the yellow colour of the pine wood. The resort is near A Famosa Safari so it does make the stay in Ayer Keroh interesting.

Au Revoir

To those who have fallen – Selamat Jalan, Au Revoir. Berdamai lah kau di sana.


Malaysian Prime Minister has announced last night that, based on satellite data, Malaysia Airlines flight MH 370 ended in Southern Indian Ocean. Below is his text:

“This evening I was briefed by representatives from the UK Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB). They informed me that Inmarsat, the UK company that provided the satellite data which indicated the northern and southern corridors, has been performing further calculations on the data.

Using a type of analysis never before used in an investigation of this sort, they have been able to shed more light on MH370’s flight path.

Based on their new analysis, Inmarsat and the AAIB have concluded that MH370 flew along the southern corridor, and that its last position was in the middle of the Indian Ocean, west of Perth.

This is a remote location, far from any possible landing sites. It is therefore with deep sadness and regret that I must inform you that, according to this new data, flight MH370 ended in the southern Indian Ocean.

We will be holding a press conference tomorrow with further details. In the meantime, we wanted to inform you of this new development at the earliest opportunity. We share this information out of a commitment to openness and respect for the families, two principles which have guided this investigation.

Malaysia Airlines have already spoken to the families of the passengers and crew to inform them of this development. For them, the past few weeks have been heartbreaking; I know this news must be harder still. I urge the media to respect their privacy, and to allow them the space they need at this difficult time.”

Kuching, Sarawak – The Cat City

Note: My heart goes to the families, relatives and friends of passengers and crews of the missing Malaysia Airlines MH370 flight bound for Beijing from Kuala Lumpur. I pray for the passenger’s and crew’s safety.


When asked whether I’ve been to Sarawak, I always feel a little embarrassed to say ‘No’. This is because Kuching, the capital of Sarawak is just an hour and a half away by flight from Kuala Lumpur. So when I reached Kuching, I got excited and couldn’t wait to explore the city. My problem is I haven’t got plenty of time as it is a weekend break and I only have 2 days to spend. So I won’t have too much to write about Sarawak, Kuching in particular and my post here will not do justice at all as there are absolutely many things you can do and experience here especially for those who love historical sites, nature and highlands.

The hotel that I was staying in is just a walking distance to Riverside Walk, India Street, Main Bazaar Road, which are the attractions as their names suggest. Here are some photos:
