    KUALA LUMPUR | Travel Series

        I lived in Malaysia for about 2 months, with my boyfriend who is studying there. Every weekend we made sure to do something adventurous or just explore Kuala Lumpur! From hiking through muddy greenery down to a waterfall, to swimming in an infinity pool over KL’s skyline ๐Ÿ™. Lucky for you I vlogged it all ๐Ÿ˜‰. Check it out and remember to subscribe to my channel! We headed to Chinatown and visited three markets, including Petaling Street! ๐Ÿฎ We even discovered one of the oldest traditional Chinese restaurants and had some tea and a traditional Chinese dessert ๐Ÿ‘€ One weekend, we got up at the crack of dawn…

    Weekend Trips You Need to Take From Kuala Lumpur

        Kuala Lumpur is a hub for connections out of the city! Not to mention that Malaysia has so many different diverse locations, from mountains, to white sand beaches on islands and the jungle! It’s so easy, and cheap, to grab a domestic flight, but also interantional flights to surrounding countries like Singapore and Indonesia! In this post I’m going to talk about a few trips I made while staying in Kuala Lumpur, how we travelled and what we did! Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, Borneo Sabah is a northern state in Malaysia and it is also the capital of Malaysian Borneo. Kota Kinabalu is the coastal capital city that provides…

    9 Things Not To Miss In Langkawi

    1. Island Hopping If thereโ€™s one thing youโ€™re going to take from this list it should be island hopping! I’m not saving the best till last this time ๐Ÿ˜Œ. Langkawi has many small islands surrounding it and there are different ways you can see them: One is with jet skis, rent jet skis and tour the islands yourself or with a guide. Jet skis can be a bit pricey (relatively) so what we did was go on a boat tour. It was a 3 hour tour, visiting three different islands. We got our boat tour from a place along Pantai Cenang beach. It only cost 50RM per person (ยฃ10) but…

    What is White Coffee? And is it Worth Trying?

    If you’ve visited Malaysia or done some research on where to go, chances are you’ve heard of ‘white coffee’. Specifically Ipoh white coffee,  a traditional type of coffee that originates from Old Town Ipoh. How is it Made? Beans used to make white coffee are roasted using palm oil margarine, giving it a lighter roast than traditional Malaysian black coffee. Black coffee beans are roasted with sugar margarine and wheat, creating a darker roast. Why “White Coffee”? However, it’s name does not come from the lighter coloured roast of the beans, instead it comes from the way the coffee is served. After the beans are brewed, the coffee is served…

    Ipoh – An Artist’s Town

    If you’re an artist, whether that be photographer, writer, painter or however you define ‘artist’, you’ll love Ipoh just as much as I do! Ipoh is the capital of Perak, a Malaysian state. It’s about 205km north from Kuala Lumpur. We drove from Subang Jaya which took approximately 2 hours, but who doesn’t love a road trip? Especially when it’s quiet a scenic drive! Ipoh is a very vibrant town, with quirky streets, cafes and creative street art! I loved the charming and inviting feel of this artistic town and enjoyed walking around, taking it all in. So I suggest just spending the day exploring it’s colourful streets and hunting…

    Most Unique Coffee in Malaysia

    The most unique coffee I tasted was in Malacca, a state in the southwest peninsula of Malaysia. We visited it’s capital, Malacca city for two days. One morning we walked down Jonker street in search of somewhere to have breakfast ๐Ÿณ. To be honest I just desperately wanted some coffee when we found a cute hipster-like cafe called The Stolen Cup: I was planning on getting a simple black iced coffee but as I browsed the menu I noticed a “Gula Melaka Latte”… ๐Ÿค” I’d never heard of this before so I asked our waitress what it was and she told me that gula melaka is palm sugar and that’s…
