The idea of taking a sabbatical; after ten-month working non-stop and saving enough money to travel to new countries for two months every year. Collecting memories and stories. The illustration inspired from my travel photos @travelnani

  Inle Lake, Myanmar .  I’ve been wanting to see these Kayan long neck women since I was a teenager after reading an article about them in a magazine. The Kayan tribe are Tibeto-Burman ethnic minority of Myanmar, a lot of them fled to the Thai border area due to conflict with the military regime in the 1980s. Read full story  here

 New Year's Eve always signifies new hope and new beginnings. 2015 NYE was one of my memorable moment, spent the night at  Seoul, South Korea  with 50 strangers (travellers and local) who I just met at the party. In Korea, the tradition of ringing the landmark bell marks the end of a year and simultaneously the beginning of a new one. The Bosingak Bell, located near Jonggak Station (Line 1), is the landmark bell of Seoul. Young polices on yellow vest lined up in circles for security reason. So cold, winter and minus degrees. I was tipsy when I asked my new friend to take this photo. We (foreign travellers) requested our new local friends to show us how to celebrate New Year like Korean. We went to Jjimjilbang (Korean public bathhouse) and walked to Seoul Tower to watch first sunrise of 2015. I wish I can celebrate New Year in different way every year.

 I visited the famous art island:  Naoshima in Japan . Met a new friend: Hiro-chan and we rode our bike together exploring art galleries around the island. She took this photo of me hugging my favourite local artist's pumpkin sculpture Yayoi Kusuma.

 2015 I had a New Year celebration in  Seoul, South Korea . Visited  Gyeongbokgung Palace , one of the largest palaces at the heart of the Korean capital city, with Mount Bugaksan as a backdrop. It is said that in the ancient times, the royal guards of the Joseon Dynasty performed the given task by guarding the Gwanghwamun Gate, the entrance of Gyeongbokgung Palace where the king ruled the country. They have the performance of ‘Royal Guard-Changing Ceremony’ almost every day with specific scheduled time. Garbed in traditional costumes of primary colours, the guards have caught the interest of the tourists, complemented by the weapons, accessories and strict ceremonial procedure providing a great opportunity of a rare traditional Korean scene in downtown Seoul
