Royal Academy Summer Exhibition 2015


As an early adopter, nothing thrills me more than when a historical institution steeped in heritage embraces the social media movement. In this specific instance, the Royal Academy of Arts invited us blogging types for a special date. Where? Summer Exhibition 2015. Who? Me and my readers (that's you guys, reading about it now on my blog).

Scenes from Royal Ascot 2015


Should one depart from the conservative confines of the Royal Enclosure for the Grandstand, one would find a more colourful crowd which makes for a more amusing game of people-watching and a better look at the Royal Carriage - when I went in 2013, all the top hats blocked my view of the Queen, but happily this year I got my perfect photo of Her Majesty!

The wheels on the bus go yum and yum

Thistle Hotels arranged for a private bus tour around London with afternoon tea by BB Bakery - a tourist bus tour, in style.

I can't remember the last time I took public transport (definitely 2014, or earlier) as I have a real phobia of...the public. But there I was last Sunday, on a traditional London Routemaster having afternoon tea with the people from Thistle Hotel and BB Bakery, thinking: "Oh, this isn't so bad after all...TFL, take note!"

'Flâneur Forever': Hermès Wanderland at Saatchi Gallery


What is more quintessentially London than the classic image of a dandy, impeccable in smoking slippers and cane, peacocking along Hyde Park with no greater pursuit in mind than that of the pleasures of a voyeuristic city stroll? His Parisian counterpart, le flâneur, is the central theme of the latest Hermès campaign ‘Flâneur Forever’, the whimsical spirit of which is celebrated at Hermès Wanderland — an immersive and surrealistic exhibition at Saatchi Gallery

The Residences by Tropicana - Global Launch, Kuala Lumpur


If you were in K.L on Saturday evening you’d have been dazzled by the incredible fireworks display in the city centre, right beside Suria KLCC and the Petronas Twin Towers. You may had also noticed a light show coming from Malaysia’s largest projection screen above the W Hotel, on the site of the soon-to-be Tropicana The Residences. As pedestrians looked up in awe at this stunning pyrotechnic display, myself and a select guests witnessed this spectacle from above - 57 floors up to be exact - at the Global Launch of The Residences by Tropicana

Nuffnang 8irthday


My blog has been described as 'the bridge between Kuala Lumpur and London' by insiders in various industries who celebrate the burgeoning talent of Malaysia's keenest while lamenting the inevitable brain drain when said talent leaves the country to seek their fortunes elsewhere. Like many privileged youth of my generation I've enjoyed a foreign education, but the difference is that after my studies I stayed on in London for nearly a decade. Yet I've still kept my ties to Malaysia - I have loving, supportive family and friends there; I get work offers from keen clients in K.L; and even Posh, Broke, & Bored is represented in the UK by Asia Pacific's First Blog Advertising Community which was founded by a Singaporean and, you guessed it, a Malaysian.
