10 REASONS TO VISIT SRI LANKA

‘Why Sri Lanka?” That’s the question I was asked numerous times when it was known that I was heading there recently for a vacation. And why not Sri Lanka?

THE ANDAMAN, LANGKAWI – A REVISIT

The Andaman, a Luxury Collection resort in Langkawi is not someplace you’d forget easily.  Although it has been 3 years since I last visited it in 2013, the majestic main lobby of The Andaman was just as breathtaking when I revisited it recently.

FU-RIN Japanese Restaurant – WAGYU BEEF PROMOTION

Wagyu directly translates into “Japanese cow” and it’s Japan that started this premium cattle breeding.
