    Your long and not-so friendly travel guide about KUALA LUMPUR, MALAYSIA

    I decided to accept the fate that I’ll make a terrible “budget traveler.” Also, that this blog weren’t be a primary source of those “traveling-here-and-there-in-a-budget” guides. On most of our travels ever since Quennie and I got married, we still miss out numerous places from the itineraries that I prepared. As for our actual expenses, they mostly inflated almost twice my estimated budget; to think that they’re mostly from the “travel guides” that I read. As a self-proclaimed miser myself and an “advocate” of cost-cutting (LOL!), it frustrates me most of the time. Same goes with myself wanting to visit as many places as possible whenever I’m in another place. But who knows? We…

    Must-try Malaysian signature dishes (KUALA LUMPUR and beyond)

    As most of the veteran travelers believe, food plays a huge part in promoting the culture of one’s country. That’s why my wife and I were making sure that we get to have a taste of their really important food. Although honestly, we’re really particular on the place to try those foods. We mostly ate our meals at mall food courts since my wife and I are serious about being careful on what to eat. Yet it didn’t stopped us to somehow have that same food experience as those who travels more extreme than us. By the way, I was able to list a very few signature dishes (and beverages) that…

    REGALIA RESIDENCES and the rest of “Where to stay in KUALA LUMPUR?”

    Few weeks before our flight to Kuala Lumpur earlier this year, my wife and I were still torn in choosing between staying at the hotel or booking a homestay thru AirBnB. No doubt that choosing the latter would mean lower prices. But, it doesn’t mean that it’s better than choosing hotels especially that the critical part in booking homestays are choosing which one could still be of quality, cozy, and convenient yet can still be within the budget since some photos are honestly deceiving. We’ve learned it from experience as that place we stayed in Singapore. Now let me tell you where we stayed in Kuala Lumpur… maybe you’ll choose it…

    Exploring MALAYSIA’S BATU CAVES: finally but not “really”

    “Let’s just go there quickly to explore other places.” I can still remember how Quennie and I talked about exploring the important places to explore in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. We’re already on the city during that time, checked in at our temporary home; and the bedtime fast approaching. We could’ve had almost 3 days to explore the whole city before taking a bus going to Singapore. The original reason why I chose Monday morning as our flight. Arriving to the city early, we’ll have more time to explore especially those places that we’re not able to visit the last time we came here; at least on my thoughts. But as usual, it…

    DIN TAI FUNG: “Taipei’s Best” in SM Megamall, Metro Manila

    Yesterday, I broke my promise to my wife. But it’s not what you think. Okay?  Now let me narrate it. These past few weeks, I’ve been going in and out of SM Megamall to address work-related concerns. Well, we’re going to have a project located here. Each time I tell my wife that I’m going to have my fieldwork here, coincidentally, she also had hers. By that, we agree to meet and go home together after running our respective errands. In some cases, before going home, we just roam around the mall; eat; or look for something to buy in order to just kill time knowing how chaotic the traffic can be.…
