Towards minimalism

I am currently reading ‘Goodbye, things: On minimalist living’ by Fumio Sasaki. I have been trying to remove a lot of (useless) things from my room as of late but I am having hard time doing so simply because:

1) I am lazy; 2) I feel unmotivated; 3) I do not have the time; and 4) I am buying more stuff.

I am on a journey towards a minimalist lifestyle and decluttering seems like a never ending process.

Inait: Song of the Spirits

May, in Sabah, is the month of Kaamatan (Harvest Festival). In 2013, my colleagues and I did an assignment on Magavau ceremony. We travelled to Penampang district and spoke to a bobohizan apprentice (whom, I was recently told, has become a full time Kadazandusun high priest). I did the interview. The write-up is done by my senior colleague Siti Nurbaiyah Nadzmi. **originally published in Life & Times , 26 May 2013

Drinking coffee in Copenhagen

People drinking coffee

One of my favourite pastimes is going to cafe for a cup of joe. There is something relaxing and elegant about it. Maybe it is the ambience or perhaps the smell of coffee. Or maybe it is the act of observing people sipping a cuppa  itself. It will take me some time to explain but like Jackie Chan said, coffee is a language itself. Here are pictures I found on Pinterest.
