Koh Nangyuan of Thailand God’s Masterpiece

Welcome to Koh NangyuanIt has been half a decade since I last visited Koh Samui. However, every time my friends consulted me about this place for a holiday, I will recommend a visit to Koh Nangyuan without fail as this island is one of God’s masterpieces!

In Thai, ‘Koh’ means island. Koh Nangyuan is located at northwest of Koh Samui in the Gulf of Thailand. By speed boat, it would take an approximately two hours to reach Koh Nangyuan from Koh Samui. Koh Nangyuan is only one of its kind. In fact, Koh Nangyuan is made of three small islands namely North Island, Middle Island and South Island and they are connected by a patch of ‘Y’ shaped stretch of sandy beach!

My Buddy Sam

Good FriendsThis is a story about childhood and friendship. Do you remember a good friend that you had in your younger days? Do you still keep in touch with him? Maybe this story will bring back some memories for you…

* * * * *

I first met him during my elementary school. We were around twelve years old or something like that. He was lean and tall. His arms and legs were slightly muscular for his age. His skin was tanned with a shade that said he’s probably seen a lot of outdoors in his life. His soft brown eyes were kindly but deep. When he looked at you, you could almost feel him looking into your soul, but with curiosity, neither with judgment nor with the penetrating depth that would make you feel uncomfortable. He wore a slightly faded grey t-shirt and a pair of old blue jeans that had frayed at the bottom. He had on a pair of shoes in which his left toe poked out.

Count Our Blessing!

In life, we never fail to experience pain. As quoted from Buddha’s teaching, First Noble Truth says ‘Life is suffering (Dukkha)’. This includes birth is suffering, aging is suffering, illness is suffering, death is suffering; the first four sights Buddha encountered when he renounced the world.

To us, all the things that make us unhappy are pain. When we are in pain, we like to pointing finger onto others for troubling us. Why are they giving us some much problem in life? Why these people are making our life so miserable? The truth is when the imperfection comes into our life, they are actually the colors of a rainbow. Only seven colors will make up a rainbow and not less! Similarly in life, missing a patch of experience may not make us a complete happy human!

Penang Balik Pulau: Durian Hunting and New Market Discovery

It is the time of the year of the durian season again. Durian also has the nick-name king of fruits is native in Malaysia and a few South-East-Asia countries. Penang is famous for its Balik Pulau durian; being the best place to experience durian on Penang island. Local folks say that Balik Pulau has the most varieties in term of durian’s taste and texture.


Last weekend, a group of friends and I were in Balik Pulau for durian hunting trip. I didn’t have the chance to go on last year’s season. As we arrived, we noticed that the temporary set-up stalls were fewer compared to two years back. It used to be rows of durian stalls on both sides of the main road heading to Balik Pulau town if you are coming from Relau/Paya Terubong junction.

Whose hand was that?

Sandy beach at Koh NangyuanA year after I got married, my significant other and I went to Koh Samui for a short get-away. Upon arrival at the hotel, we booked a day trip to Koh Nangyuan and Mango Bay for water activities that included snorkeling. It went well as the service was good and the staff spoke good English.

When the boat got to the popular snorkeling spot, Mango Bay, we quickly stripped down to our swimming attires and jumped into the sea together. We swam quite a distance from the boat before deciding to start snorkeling.

Wow.. it was such a paradise! The corals were indeed very beautiful and came in different shapes, sizes and colours! Fish swam among them looking for shelter and food. My significant other decided to check out another spot by himself. While I was busy observing the marine life, my significant other came back. I reached for his hand and urged him to another interesting spot. All of a sudden, I felt someone touched my left shoulder. I turned and saw that he was my significant other. Opsh!!! Whose hand did I grab then?


Catastrophic versus Terrorism: Nargis Cyclone/Sichuan Earthquake versus Jaipur Bomb Blast

In less than two weeks as we begins new chapter in May 2008, two catastrophic hit Asia of one after another.

A basin called Sichuan in central China was struck by an earthquake of 7.9 Magnitude scale on May 12 Monday afternoon at local time. The death toll from this Sichuan massive earthquake has risen to almost 15,000 (when this article is written) and several thousands remain cut-off.

This tragedy can relate to me vividly as I was in Sichuan twice in the last five years. In year 2005, I visited Chengdu and Jiuzhaigou. Sichuan is a valley with several mountainous ranges surrounding it. When I was on the roads from Mianyang to Jiuzhaigou, it was only a narrow single winding lane of one way traffic by the cliff. I still recalled the incident whereby there was a misunderstanding of traffic direction in a tunnel about 1 km ahead of us. There was no way out, no overtaking was possible and no reversing as the vehicles queue was picking up in just a few minutes. It was a busy road then. While waiting in our coach, I just realized that the right side of our bus was ravine that went straight to the roaring strong current river.

Caught sleeping at night

A humorous encounter while traveling along Great Ocean Road, VIC

In autumn some years back, my significant other was relocated to Melbourne for a short assignment and I tagged along. Being a full time home maker there, I did not have much to do except cooking, shopping, cleaning and reading. Nevertheless, I took up a new position in our household by becoming the weekend trip organizer.

Personal Development – Life by Design

Enjoying LifeYou can take control of your fate! I believe that life is by design. No, I am not talking about the great Creator who created the great cosmos, laws of the universe and us humans. I am talking about our individual life, about our choices and decisions as we live and about how the outcomes of our lives are because of our previous actions and less because of fate or some random luck. Granted that there may be an earthquake tomorrow and you may die or be injured, or maybe the stock market may just crash overnight and wipe you out, but many things that happen tomorrow are the result of what you did today, yesterday or sometime way before. Your decisions lead you to where you are now, whether you are successful, rich and powerful or a beggar by the street.
