US passport being denied along the order – citizenship under scare

This is a strange kind of a problem that many US citizens are facing. It is being seen that though one is born in the United States, citizenship of such people is being questioned as the government thinks that the birth certificate of the individuals is fraudulent. This is happening even when the birth certificate is issued by the state in which the person resides. After many such cases were reported, the State Department challenged that such news is not completely correct. Lots of debate are a...

Best places to travel in January

January is back to business. After nearly a month of half-empty offices and using the excuse that nothing gets done during the holidays anyway, January is the Monday of months, when we all dutifully head into the office with a resolution to be more productive. Well, most of us. Others see January as a time to escape winter and head somewhere warm. Or hit the mountains to ski. Or just generally not be in the office with all those other people who’ve resolved to be more productive. For those fo...

6 Water Sports You Need To Try

Water sports are some of the most exhilarating and challenging things to try out in life purely for their unique nature. It’s no wonder that people get hooked on water sports and choose to spend their summers taking part in a whole range of them just for the fun of it all. However, there are a lot of water sports out there to take part in, so it can be quite difficult to navigate your way around which one you should try (and even, in some cases, where exactly you can try it). So, without furthe...

In the Car with Kinga

The Transfăgărășan Road is the most famous road in Romania. Its twists and turns over the Carpathian Mountains are legendary and it is often dubbed the greatest road to drive on in the world. Tons of car commercials have been shot on it. I was standing somewhere near the bottom, staring at a closed sign. There was a single kitschy souvenir stand open near the final turn, guarded by an aggressively friendly stray dog. Our tour guide, Kinga, came back from speaking with the man running it. “The r...

KY eats – Mdm Ing Fish Noodle, Kota Kinabalu

Kota Kinabalu has always been known for their seafood, undoubtedly due to its location as well as the local’s preference in how they get their protein.

Why Ari is My Favourite Bangkok Neighbourhood

Most visitors to Bangkok choose to stay in one of three neighbourhoods. There’s the area Banglamphu around Khao San Road for the backpackers, Sukhumvit for the upmarket clubs and bars, and Silom for the business travellers. One place that’s not found on the typical traveller’s itinerary is the neighbourhood of Ari. Located in north-central Bangkok, it’s away from the major tourist attractions and therefore the tourists. It’s a neighbourhood that’s popular with middle-class Thais and expats, and ...
