What You Could Get in Kuala Lumpur for $10 – More Than Just the Twin Tower

If you ask me what city I’m most familiar with in any ASEAN countries, apart from Singapore then I will definitely mention Kuala Lumpur for the next. Ever since I visited the capital city of Malaysia for the first time in 2013, I always stop by the city at least once in every year. It could be for the sole purpose of travel, transit, or even work.

No kidding, back when I was working as a flight attendant, I probably flew to KUL more often than most of my Malaysian colleagues. There were times when I even had a week layover in the city. If you asked me whether I’ve ever given up a room at DoubleTree for a university to a dormitory room in a university, my answer is yes I have.

I left my hotel room unoccupied to a dormitory room at UTM, just so I could have a sleepover with Miza during my long layover in the city.

After quitting my job as a flight attendant, I surprisingly travel more frequently. And whenever I get to choose a transit in either Singapore or Kuala Lumpur, more often than not I’d choose the latter. And the city itself will be the one that we cover now. Thanks to Kirsty from World for A Girl who will be sharing her recommendation with us!

Top Things to Do on Your Indian Ocean & Adventure Holidays

If you’re thinking what a giant slice of paradise on earth means, the coasts of Indian Ocean could perfectly fall under that glorious description.

You’d easily get swept into a daydream of you booking flights to Mauritius, Maldives or Seychelles, spending a week or so to live an idyllic life, lounging by the powdery white sand beaches, exploring wildlife or indulging in sumptuous local cuisine from breakfast to dinner.

Imagining the adventure itself can make your heart skip a beat and booking your flights for the first time will make you giggly. Experiencing it firsthand feels like falling in love for the first time. And when you do, you fall hard.

5 Life Lessons that I’ve Learned from Having a Toxic Uncle Who’s Basically an Asshole

Since the title might sound controversial for some of you, let me put a disclaimer here: this one is a really personal post. And despite the fact that I’m trying my best to bottle up my emotion, I decided to just write a post about it as some kind of therapy. So, here we go!

First of all, I rarely talk about my family. I mean, I know a lot of people who would share their some kind of picture-perfect family portrait during holiday seasons. Be it during Christmas or Idul Fitri around here, some people even customized some matching outfits with the rest of the family to get a perfect family picture during the time.

Well, in case you haven’t noticed that… I’m not that kind of person. Holiday seasons for me are just another day, the only difference is that many people come and go to my house for a visit.

Plus, I’ve got a super big family that I just can’t keep up anymore. And I don’t even bother pretending that I’m impressed by the connection we’ve shared through our ancestors. The only reason why I’ve been trying to behave myself is because of my parents.

What You Could Get in Alexandria, VA for $10 – Strolling Around the Old Town

Whenever I hear ‘Alexandria’, my mind always goes to the city in Egypt. But hey, did you know that there’s also another city with the same name in the United States?

Located in the state of Virginia, I wasn’t really aware of its existence until I got connected to Maria from Call It Adventure for this week’s $10 series.

Yup, she’ll be covering the city that is just south of Washington D.C. So, how could you spend your $10 in the city that is known as the Old Town? Check this one out for details! 🙂

The Art of Working From Home: Pros and Cons Before You Consider Leaving Your Office Job (and Everything Else)

I’ve been quite busy lately to the point that I didn’t even have time to update anything throughout this weekend. Last weekend, I went out again with Nesia and Jean, my go-to partners when it comes to exploring places around Bandung. After we hit off the road to Stone Garden last year, we decided to go to Ciwidey last week.

Anyway, one issue that came up when we went out is this: my working from home situation.

Don’t get me wrong, I love my current job more than my previous one(s). But then again, not everything in life sparks joy because life isn’t that fair like that. There are times when you have a hard time, sometimes it has something to do with what you do, with whom you have to do it, or even how you do it.

As it is holiday’s seasons for some of my cousins who are still at school, they come to Bandung to spend their holiday here. Long story short, as someone who’s not exactly a big fan of kids, I couldn’t really stand with all the crying or the yelling. Especially not when I have to catch with the deadlines.
