Making the best use of Covid 19 situation

My recent note shared with family/friends:


I trust you’re staying safe and taking all precautions.

It’s the strangest period that we’re living in, none of us have seen anything like this in our lifetime. It is emotionally (and financially) draining for we didn’t have enough problems to deal with already 🙂

Compounding, the Eighth Wonder of the World

Best of Phuket

As the post title suggests, I’m sharing the best of what Phuket has to offer and some offbeat stuff:

Aerial view of Phuket: My flight from Kualalumpur to Phuket was almost half empty. I couldn’t help but being glued to the window of the plane. The aerial view was breath taking, felt like I was being transported to a different planet…imagine almost 15 mins of live display of hundreds of these limestone formations dotting the blue sea.
