Sure, Prince George is adorable and whatnot, but come on! Look at the smile on Prince Jigme Namgyel Wangchuck!

Bhutan beckons

It is now that time of the year when the breathtakingly beautiful mountains of Bhutan call to a fusion of art, literature, music and culture.

Travelling painter Ang Ah Tee's latest solo exhibition features the mountainous kingdom, which he visited last year.

Second-generation Singapore artist Ang Ah Tee started travelling to paint almost as soon as he graduated from the Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts (Nafa) in 1962.

BHUTAN – A Buddhist kingdom in the Himalayas, home to nearly 743,000 people and a government that prefers to measure Gross National Happiness (GNH) instead of GDP.

My wife Nimmi said "Bhutan"- it's off the beaten track, with mountains, forests and rivers and highest global gross national happiness index.

I was sold on the idea!

So we booked a tentative 8D/7N tour with a Bhutan-based tour operator for US$280 (S$376.80) per person or RM2,500 (S$839) per couple per day in November.
