10 Pictures I Love in our Asian Trip

 1. A pic of Mr. James Holley on his millionth wave in Nias Island (Pulau Nias, Sumatra, Indonesia). I felt so happy taking a lot of photos of him catching waves from the moment he paddled into the water at around 6 o’clock in the morning.
 2. This is how it looks like in front of our losmen (indo for accommodation) in Sorake Beach, Nias, in low tide. It may look like you can easily step onto the shallow water but it’s a puddle of mud. Though, the view is very scenic when you turn around. :)
 3. Cintamani Travellers Lodge window facing the neatly stood buildings in the heart of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. We were on the third floor of the mini-hotel which has a great view on students of SeGi College walking along the street during daytime.
 4. Jalan Tun H.S. Lee on a humid afternoon in Kuala Lumpur where an art-restaurant stood on the right-hand side that serves different types of teas and where you can also relax with the avant-garde interiors.
 5. The ever Nyonya Fried Rice with chicken and the refreshing watermelon juice in Old China Kafe. The very old-school restaurant can be found just behind the Hindu Temple near the Chinatown in KL. One must taste their delish menu and feel the vibe of the vintage atmosphere - think of Gen. Chang Kai Shek (forgot the spelling) photo framed and hung on the wall. Another floor above is the tea house that sells sorts of teas.
 6. The streetview across Jalan Petaking entrance. I love the blue-green paint of the building which also shows how KL’s influence was that of the British with its architectural design.
 7. The only reason why I love this photo is because of seeing the word Filipina along with our dearest National Flag.
 8. This photo was taken in an Indian (Hindu) store along the road Jalan Tun Perak, left side when you cross from Arenaa Mountbatten Hotel. I haven’t been in church lately and upon seeing this, I felt so good and safe.
 9. I actually posed for this one since I love sun and the beach together on that very day in Lhok Nga. It has been raining quite a few times and sun basking to get glowing tan was a bit hard to do due to the weather condition. The shades of green and blue were so perfect that I became so obsessed taking photos of myself.
10. After 48 years, I did this gymnastic move on the Indo shores. I realized I’m really getting older because I did feel my muscles stretched.

In the world of digital cameras, pictures are easy to take. But among thousands of them, only a few of them would really stand out. Happy Sunday to all!


  1. hiya, what was your accomodation line in Nias? are there many options available?

    about to head there as it looks amazing

    1. hey! first, thanks for droppin by here. yup, there are lots of choices to see but the best one is near the spot, so u could check the waves easily in front of your porch. do u want a contact number? but the place we stayed wasn't the one in front of the spot tho. maybe a 3 minute walk. ;)
