Our recent bump-into and star struck,


Yuna at BSC. She was in flats and really is that tall!


Amina (from Masterchef AUS S4) at The Gardens. She really is that sweet.

I don’t know how long can I keep my coolness before my groupie starts showing when I host this Ashtanga rockstar for two weeks next month.

I am proudly Malaysian.

We wouldn’t trade wanna trade Malaysian food and raising a family with anything and anywhere else.

My neverending gratitude and blessings to get to live in such a peaceful and warm country where tropical fruits are cheap and roadside parking is aplenty.

With all my heart, happy 56th Independence Day, Malaysia - tanah tumpah darahku.

And so I am beyond honoured and thrilled to be hosting THE David Robson (CANADA | KPJAYI 2) from Learn To Float fame at my humble little Upward this coming October.

He will be leading a Led Practice and conducting three workshops at Upward.
Details and RSVP / payment instructions HERE.

AND.. we are going to Pangkor Laut Resort for luxury Ashtanga Yoga retreat!
It is also the first retreat that Upward & I organize on our own so I am beyond excited!

Anyhow, my bad.. There are only THREE DAYS LEFT to join us and David under the sun in an island where there is only one resort. (Registration is now closed)

We have participants joining us from all around the globe and there are only a couple of spots left so if you’d love to join us for days filled with Ashtanga enlightenment and floating wisdom, RSVP your spot now HERE. We appreciate full payment by September 1st to secure your spot with us for this exclusive retreat.

(Kindly do not RSVP at both event pages without payment confirmation e-mail from us.)

I have been to Pangkor Laut Resort (PLR) four times now

..it is still and definitely my favourite vacation in Malaysia and well.. it is afterall, voted ‘Number One In The World’ by Conde Nast Traveller, UK and only Luciano Pavarotti’s favourite place on earth..

For Upward’s debut retreat and with an Ashtanga teacher I highly look up to,
it is too obvious why I’ve dreamt about this with only PLR in mind.

I am blessed with the ability to nourish my baby with just the right nutrients, antibodies, security and warmth she needs.

I can’t wait to help contribute to the numbers they are looking for to break Malaysia’s Book of Records for The Most Number of Women Breastfeeding Simultaneously In One Room this coming Saturday!

Be it at this event or later,
I am secretly hoping to recreate this photo

from Daughter of The Sun

WITH SOME CLOTHES, of course.

If you’d like to join me for the event (yes, in headstand is highly welcome!)
to create more awareness for Malaysian women that every mother can breastfeed,
details and sign-up instructions are HERE.

See you and your DD there (in mommy and breastfeeding lingo, DD means ‘Dear Daughter’, FYI)!

‘It takes someone really brave to be a mother, someone strong to raise a child and someone special to love someone more than herself.’

It was a weekend of firsts.

It was my first time celebrating Mother’s Day first hand

and PJ was at the beach for the very first time.

Although I haven’t been to my hair salon for almost a year now and
I don’t know when will I have the time for full blown 2-hours Ashtanga practice again,

this butter ball..

makes it all worth it.

With all my heart,
Happy Mother’s Day to all mothers on this earth.
