“Welcome to your pool villa, Madam”, said the staff who unlocked the beautiful hand-carved wooden door before us.  This was the next thing we saw.  This was our very own pool villa for the weekend.

And I wonder how their everyday-life was like.  To be inhabiting on a piece of heaven like this, it is surely a blessing. However, when it is rainy season the Monsoon storm had no mercy for small long tail boats nor for human.

But still I would dream to live on this island.

THE BEGINNING

This was my very own sunset. Time stands still every time I think of this darkening sky .  I can still hear the sound of the ocean and feel the sunlight brushing my skin.  And I wonder, would I ever see a sunset like this again? The truth is, […]
