A Must-Watch Movie: The Kid From The Big Apple (我来自纽约) 

I have zero tolerance for most Chinese movies, especially those mou lei tou (nonsense) plot.

You are like Stars, not always seen, but always there
You are like Stars, not always seen but Forever there
This one? I love it, love it, love it. Not only me, but the ‘big and small’ people in my life, aka my mom and my 2 nieces, also enjoyed the tearjerker movie.

And for it to be directed by a Malaysian director, and 100% shot in Malaysia .. Hooray.

It has been showing since 10 March, so catch it fast before it makes way to new releases.


Travel opens up a whole new world, which is cliche but true. I am a strong advocate for independent and solo travel. I was born and raised in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia but now live in Bangkok, Thailand, resulted from a chance encounter in 2009 with my why-are-you-Thai bf. I am now split between two countries. One country for my bf, another for the family, for the occasional weekend together.
