Life’s been pretty busy since I got back from HKG. I’ve barely had any time to unpack and readjust to the usual. It was just today that I managed to clean up my room and clear away all the clutter from travel items I’ve accumulated, and it’s been 2.5 weeks since I’ve been back. Not too…

CX F review

I’ve always been a flight geek, which made every travel adventure on a plane pretty fun in and of itself. But with this return leg of my trip in Cathay Pacific First Class, I was even more stoked than usual. It called for a 5am wake up call, allowing enough time for me to have…

2016

As we end 2016, it seems to once again mimic the other 20+ NYE’s as I gather my thoughts introspectively and digest the happenings of the past 365 days quietly at home. And it’s definitely been an eventful year which built upon the lessons learned in 2015. Even as I review and compare my present self…
