Bali Memories

This time last year…  Given the situation with COVID-19, travel will have to wait. This is a distant memory from last year in Ubud. It’s one of the many resorts among the paddy fields where one goes to switch off from everything. Shot with the drone, which I eventually crashed… twice!

Temples of Chiang Mai

In May 2018, I took a short break from Singapore to explore Chiang Mai in northern Thailand.

If you’re early for your flight, and need some peace and quiet, some food, a place to chill or maybe get some work done, consider paying for access to the Coral Lounge.
