Tasting Penang

After hearing rave reviews about the food in Penang, I decided to taste the dishes Penang had to offer.


For a budget traveler like myself, finding solace in street food is not only good for my pocket but also for my belly. I found several hunger quenchers along the different streets in Penang.

The Historical City of Georgetown

I found myself in the UNESCO Heritage Town of Georgetown in Penang, during my Southeast Asia trip. It was similar to Malacca, but not quite the same.

Melaka Trip Itinerary & Expenses

I traveled slowly when I went on my six week trip to three different countries in Southeast Asia that's why I ended up staying in Malacca for a week.


Malacca was an interesting place to visit, especially for a first timer like me.

The Imagined City: Putrajaya

Since I've been to KL before and have seen the Petronas Towers, I decided to head to the administrative capital of Malaysia, Putrajaya.


Putrajaya was a short train ride away from Kuala Lumpur. The ticket cost me around 9.50 MYR if I'm not mistaken.
