Star Cruises’ Superstar Gemini Review (Or, Dear Robin Leach, Cruise Ship Traveling Isn’t Just for the Rich and Groovy Retirees)

Notwithstanding sans a honeymoon mate, I walked towards the gigantic ship bootlegging the swag of Mark Renton at the end of Trainspotting. Only this time, I am Ship-spotting. Unflappably sliding my feet over the smooth carpet of the hallway of Harbour Front in Singapore, I silently declaimed my own version of the film’s famous quote….

Naumi Liora, Singapore: Chinatown Charm

After an eight-hour intercontinental flight and a frantic search for a carry on bag which me mum left in the overhead compartment of our plane from Australia, we stumbled into Naumi Liora’s doors looking mighty frazzled. Henny the receptionist, who was prompt in greeting us outside the entrance, was on our heels — toting our…

Fond Farewell To Pre-School Nomadism

33 countries under her teeny crocheted belt. Some people think that, for her age, it ain’t nothing but a number. Sure, she can’t remember all the country names (and never correctly pronounced most of them). She can’t remember the tens of airports she passed through (though the memory lingers briefly for she’s got a photographic…

Singapore Hotels: J8 Hotel

“A balcony?!” That pretty much sealed the deal. There had been much deliberation between me and the sis over where to stay in Singapore on her 30th. “Splurge”, we said with conviction. But at the last minute realized that our stingy arses could only agree on a mid-range one. That wall!” The decision to bunk…

2013 Year-Ender: When Travel Turned Into A Black Hole

And I got sucked in. In 2012, we were armed with all sorts of excuses: Extended honeymoon stage. A break from the mundane. Discounted airfares for tots. “Still saving up for a house (and/or still haven’t decided where to buy)“. Backpacking while young. Living in the now… The list went on and echoed through the…

2012 Year-Ender/World-Ender

Ahhh… 2012. You are an ebullient homage to wanderlust. Frankly, I am quite obsessed with your ruffled months. In fact it’s almost midnight and amid that end-of-the-world hullabaloo, here I am fondly sewing a patchwork of idyllic imagery to commemorate your flamboyance and purport. Now this may seem like a pathetic way of exiting the…

280 RTW Days… And Why We’re Home So Soon.

“Other things may change us, but we start and end with the family.” ~ Anthony BrandtIt ended sooner than expected. Then again, who’s really counting the days? Not us (but that counter on my sidebar is). And I bet my stenchy goat leather wallet from Morocco that you guys aren’t counting either. You most definitely…

Kuala Lumpur

After spending 2 hours in Singapore, we took a bus (S$25) to Kuala Lumpur. It was the cheapest available since it wasn’t ‘VIP’. We were concerned that the ride won’t be comfortable and seats might not have much leg room for passengers. Lo and behold, we found out we were the only passengers on the…
