The original Volkswagen Beetle was first introduced to the world in 1938, and made its way to Malaysia in the 1950s. In 1968, local assembly of the Beetle was started here and to date, around 22.5 million units have been sold worldwide.

Now with a sportier, edgier look, the Beetle still carries much of its classic frame and evokes the same strong emotions every Beetle fan has, both then and today.

This blog is a platform to share what I love in life: food (eat), travel (play), photography (art) and life (thoughts and ideas). With passion for food, I share my foodie adventures and indulgences here. “There is no love sincerer than the love of food.” Traveling makes us a better human being as we recognise the similarities and celebrate the differences of cultures between where we travel to and where we come from. “The World is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.” Photography do more than just capturing the best moments in our lives; they also help us tell our life stories. “Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.”
