    7 Stunning Places in Valencia

    Once you enter all you see is greenery, the sun shining through, birds chirping and it was a welcome break from walking through the busy streets all morning. We spent about a couple of hours here, relaxing on a bench, under the sun, taking it all in.

    9 Things Not To Miss In Langkawi

    1. Island Hopping If there’s one thing you’re going to take from this list it should be island hopping! I’m not saving the best till last this time 😌. 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 (£10) but…

    What is White Coffee? And is it Worth Trying?

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 🍳. 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”… 🤔 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…

    2500km of West Malaysia in 2 Weeks

    I recently got back from a jam-packed two weeks in Malaysia 🇲🇾. Although it took 3 flights (including a cancelled one 😒) and 40 hours to get there, from England, it was well worth it! I went to visit my boyfriend, Stef, who is currently studying there and together we managed to see different cities, towns and an island, in just 2 short weeks. Now we didn’t really have much of a plan, in fact we had no plan until I arrived. Thankfully, Stef’s cousin and auntie were more than happy to give us suggestions on where to visit and within an hour we had a solid plan… Spend a…
