Down-To-Earth Bhutan

As mentioned in my previous post, Gangtey has two luxury hotels–one is Gangtey Goenpa Lodge where we stayed and the other is the Amankora Gangtey. Although I prefer Gangtey Goenpa Lodge’s authentic feel, there’s no denying the latter’s appeal. It’s modern minimalist aesthetic (as seen in the first nine photos below) can make anyone feel […]

Gangtey Nature Trail

No trip to Bhutan would be complete without hiking to the Tiger’s Nest but since it’s more or less a 10km hike up, it’s a pretty long hike that needs a little warm up session. This Gangtey Nature Trail is only an easy 2 hour trek around the valley’s wildlife sanctuary so it was a […]

My Favorite Home In Bhutan

My sister and I knew traveling to Bhutan wouldn’t exactly be cheap. Aside from the minimum fee the government of Bhutan requires from all tourists, Bhutan also has the fanciest hotels. In fact, it actually has the most number of Aman group of hotels in the world. Yes, that same Aman group of Amanpulo fame. […]

Maintaining My Skin

I’ve had really fair skin all my life. I remember back in high school my friends would tease me that my skin was turning transparent because it was that white. I guess this is the reason why I used to never really bother maintaining my fair complexion. I could stay all day under the sun, […]

Dochula Pass, Bhutan

They say the best time to go to Bhutan is around autumn and spring but I think there’s something special about the kingdom during winter as well. It was early February when my sister and I went to Bhutan so gone were the lush flora and fauna by that time. Instead, snow-covered leaves and mountains […]

How To Be A Smart Shopper

I wasn’t always a smart shopper. In fact, I was the worst kind–determined and impulsive, which is the worst possible combination if you ask me. I’d buy anything I fancied, without even considering its value for money. Does it fit right? Ohhhh I can always have it altered. (Kaching. More money lost.) Will I be […]

Heartbreakers Wave Chasers

Our official hashtag during our trip with Roxy in Bali was #HeartbreakersWaveChasers. A little bit rebellious-sounding, isn’t it? So I thought it was only fitting that Roxy brought us to the most bad ass place in Bali–Deus Ex Machina. Surrounded by surfboards, bikes and rockin’ music, we all let our inner bad girl out–or at […]

Finn’s Beach Club

I may be a beginner when it comes to surfing, but when it comes to relaxing at the beach, I’m a pro. Roxy whisked us girls away to Bali’s popular Finn’s Beach Club to just unwind and enjoy the beach the way we wanted to. Pizzas and ice cream were ordered, a few cocktails were […]
