Words for Nepal

MALAYSIA | Friday, 6 Dec 2013 | Views [399]

I feel so compelled to share this story by National Geographic photographer, Aaron Huey. I've been following Aaron on Instagram (user ID argnonautphoto) ever since I stumbled upon a photo of his of Ama Dablam. It was, shortly after I returned from my ... Read more >

Goodbye Nepal

NEPAL | Saturday, 26 Oct 2013 | Views [472] | Comments [1]

The flight out of Kathmandu was probably one of the most picturesque I've been on - only comparable to our flight out of Lukla. Thanks to Dad secretly pre-booking the best seats again, I was treated one last time to a wonderful view of the Himalayas, ... Read more >

Altitude: 3700m. We are making our way down. The sad news is we never made it to the top. The weather didn't look like it was getting better with what looked like a cold front heading towards Everest, suggesting another snow storm. There was also ... Read more >

Namaste Nepal

NEPAL | Friday, 27 Sep 2013 | Views [451]

We've touched down in Kathmandu! The flight in was amazing thanks to Dad's prebooking of the best seats for a view of the Himalayas. Being snowcapped, they were hard to spot at first but you could definitely see Everest and the rest of the world's youngest ... Read more >

Home is Beautiful Too

MALAYSIA | Tuesday, 17 Sep 2013 | Views [355]

I'm guilty of forgetting how beautiful my hometown really is. Because I come from Kota Kinabalu, I take for granted the beauty of this place. But waking up early today to walk up an old childhood haunt, Bukit Padang, had me truly appreciating the magnificence ... Read more >
