What goes up, must come down, and as is the same case for hiking. Everybody has this preconceived notion that going down is always better than going up.

Architecture, Food and Batu Caves in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Ever since I saw the movie Entrapment where Katherine Zeta Jones dangles between the Petronas Twin Towers, I’ve always wanted to visit Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia.

Vibrant and Historical Town of Malacca, Malaysia

Visiting the vibrant and historical city of Malacca, located in West Malaysia, was an amazing treat. It’s only a few-hour bus ride from both Singapore and Kuala Lumpur.
