Hi, I’m Tommy Ooi. Thank You for visiting & viewing my site & blog.
The main intention of creating the site is to share my travel experience with everyone and hopefully through the experiences I am able to help simplify your travel planning.
Traveling is a huge part of my life. Traveling not only broadens my mind but also inspire my life.
My traveling style is more towards flashpacking, i do not spend on unnecessary stuff but I’m willing to indulge in luxurious hotel, vintage wines & fine dining.
My holiday experience must be relaxing with ample time for me spend & to explore. I’ve been rushing everyday during work and i do not expect to rush during my holidays as well.
Another huge part of my life is food. I’m known by my friends for always indulging in good, tasty food ( be it fine dining or street food ). Born in Penang which is also known as Food Heaven attribute to my passion for food.
I love food very much and just could not get enough of tasty delicacy around the world.
I’m very neutral when food tasting hence i will always give strong & truthful criticism.
Do not take it personally if i condemned the food you feel it is tasty as food tasting is an universal subject whereby each individual has different perception of tasty.
However I am confident the food which earns my positive review will satisfy most people’s tastebud.
Why Create This Site?
I’m an avid traveler. Every time before my travel, i will spend weeks researching on my destination’s attractions, food & transportation. Thus all the articles found are compiled from my research on many books & sites.
Hopefully with the articles, other travelers would benefit from the hassle i went through & able to simplify their travel planning to focus on enjoying their travel.
Thank you to my friend Ju Ping whom helped me to start up the blog & Chong Yang for configuring the back ends. Definitely would not be able to start the blog without your help.
Appreciate it very much.
