I’ll be honest. I was terrified when I took the plunge. Excited, yes. But also fearful and anxious. I was a cocktail of emotions and it stirred me from my sleep with worries of “What if I don’t get any clients? What if I end up earning less? What if I …*gasp*….. FAIL?” Being the idealist […]

play it forward vol.13

Recently I’ve been spending a little more time on me, after making a life changing decision of taking a break from the advertising industry.  But I’ll save that for another rant post! I’m currently in the midst of reviving”Play It Forward“, one of my projects birthed from creative habit.  Here’s the latest playlist available for download: http://bit.ly/PlayItForward_VOL13. Volume 13, […]

Travel (1)

It’s difficult to imagine a world beyond cubicles, meeting rooms and traffic jams. Its become such a big part of our lives, this sitting in front of our laptops all day, starring into devices, replying work emails, messages and all the necessary daily duties that comes with a paycheque. But fear not! There is a vast wide […]

So I’m sure you’ve seen some of those urbandictionary words floating around. Just for laughs, I thought I’d come up with a few of my own renditions, inspired by personal observations. Enjoy!

Mixtape Cover

Here are 15 tracks to fold your clothes and roll your socks to, while sipping […]

Planning the next adventure

Not one to glorify being busy, nor fabricate dramatic excuses as to why I dropped off the grid of this blog. But it’s true, a lot has happened. Too much actually, to put into words. Life just speeds up a notch when you hit your 30’s. Slowly but surely though, I will start this blog rolling again, […]

№12 Play It Forward

  It’s been a while but I’ve finally compiled the 12th Play It Forward playlist to be downloaded and passed on. Perhaps you’re in another area code, country or parallel universe, and we’re listening to the same tune, feeling just a little less alone. Whoever you are, where ever you may be, I hope you enjoy […]

Her name is Letty. She left when I was around 3, popping in and out of my life in no particular pattern or fashion. I didn’t quite understand where she went. Nor was I told why. Other kids would paint and draw stickmen cards on Mother’s Day. They got excited over glitter on a heart […]

As with any form of romanticism, my first taste of rebellion took place in an all-girls boarding school, under an old oak tree with 3 classmates. And thus began my longest relationship. What started out casual, turned into an intimate affair. I started doing it alone, risking being caught in the ladies room at 2am. […]

I love plane rides. The familiar feeling of insomniac anticipation. Peering out the window and down below for a glimpse of seemingly limitless frontiers to be explored. Islands swallowed by concrete jungles. The sunsets and sunrise, at times so bright that it bleaches out the world. The powerful desire to reach out and touch the cloud mist […]

Just when you thought sunsets couldn’t get any more breathtaking, Matt Molloy came up with a series of photos titled “smeared sky photos”. Stacking 100 to 200 photos into one, he gave a new perspective of time and change, while giving us a fresh way to enjoy the view above us. Like brushes of paint […]

Easily excitable over a piece of stationery, cracked tiles on the floor, a free photo app and the harlem shake – I’ve been sidetracked. Whilst I do not expect my 1,000 over followers (wow guys thanks!) to be sitting by the screen of their laptops in a dark corner of a room, waiting with chattering […]

Water Suite @ Velassaru, Maldives

As the month slithers away into the snake year, one can’t help but pine to shed ones skin while sipping  on the cool allure of a minty fresh mojito under the sun, by the glistening ocean. Ah to feel the bite of the sun on the skin and bring home a shade of respite with […]

“The world is all but a wasteland, when you don’t travel beyond where you stand.” -SKB There are 3 things in life that fuels me: Travel, Music and Photography. So you can imagine my excitement when I chanced upon a artistic collaboration that combines all of the above! These beautiful and insightful images of Cairo has ignited the […]

There’s an article that’s been circulating around on social media. It’s about a guy from advertising, Linds Redding, a New Zealand-based art director who worked at BBDO and Saatchi & Saatchi, died last month at 52 from an inoperable esophageal cancer. The article was based on his last words before Cancer took him. It striked a […]
