This blog started off as the Cultural Arts Travelogue in 2011. It focussed very simply on my reviews on arts exhibitions and my travel stories, given my thirst for writing articles that would not necessarily fit into magazines and journals. My blog is slowly evolving into becoming a place where I have woken up to who I am, what I loved to do and doing what I’ve always dreamed off.  It is now a place (the blog and the social media platforms) where I can create daily conversations around life as a whole, whether it is travel, arts, lifestyle, wellness and beyond.  It has also become a ‘portfolio’ of my work, without my planning to, especially in the content strategy, development and execution zone.

My blog stories tend to be carefully documented and researched photo-essays of places and experiences. I believe that by discovering global landscapes in varying depths, we learn more about our inner life(e)scapes and how we can be authentic to ourselves.  That’s why I continue to blog, write, take photos and make videos, after all these years.

Intent on living a life full of purpose, I use various arts modalities apart from writing (such as painting, jewelry, cufflinks, photography and performance arts) and showcase these artforms at various exhibitions and events. My stories are inspired by travel which I use as a great tool towards helping me through my own inner journeys (the singular reason why I wrote the mini-book ‘Travel to Create, Travel to Thrive’).

Travel inspired. I created this collection of cufflinks which showcases the UK countryside. The autumn season and the spring season (not seen). This was one of the best cufflinks collection I made.

 

I hope to, through this blog and through my community work (more on this soon!), effect change by building connections that go beyond the physical. I hope that my blog stories inspire you to make your inner journey as dynamic as your outer journey in this world evolves. That my blog stories are powerful mini-potions to initiating change, first at personal human heart level, and then in society and community as a whole.

I remain dedicated to learning, expanding my connections, creating opportunities and serving those who need my help the most, so as to effect change at soul level.  Thank you for visiting.

One of my favourite photos from Mount Kinabalu, Malaysia. The stick you see, actually has holes on the top of it and the wind whistles through. Imagine my writing stories and poems to warm the heart on a chill, winters night (believe me, it was cold!
