KL Fails

Sometimes, travel is amazing and you feel like an absolute boss hopping between towns and attractions.  Other times, it’s an absolute shit and nothing goes right. My time in KL was the latter. It didn’t start well, it didn’t finish well and all in all, I was not a happy traveller. It happens, but some…

My Melacca top 5 highlights

I loved Melacca.  It was so chilled and laid back and I really enjoyed the slower pace of the city.  After the hustle and bustle of Singapore, Melacca was a nice sea change.  I originally had 5 nights booked but extended my stay to 8 days.  I am glad I did. So here are my…

Ringo’s Foyer Guesthouse, Melacca, Malysia

I think the main reason for staying so long in Melacca was because of Ringo’s Foyer Guesthouse. Never before have I felt so welcome at a hostel.  The owner Howard goes to great lengths to make sure his guests are happy and enjoying themselves.  When I checked in, I got a full tour from one…

The Singapore-Malaysia Land Cross

I could not believe how easy it was to get from Singapore to Malaysia.  Out of all the land crossing I have ever done, this was by far the most straight forward and easy. In Singapore, I went to the Queen Street Bus Terminal and jumped on one of the causeway buses. I went with…

Bucket List Item: The Singapore Sling

The Singapore Sling would have to be one of my all-time favourite cocktails.  The love of this fruity drink stems more from its heritage than its delicious fruity awesomeness.  It was created in 1915 by the resident bartender Ngiam Tong Boon for the lady drinkers of the establishment.  At the time it was very uncouth…

Singapore: Michelin Star Street Food

  It is probably going to be the only time in my life that I will ever be able to afford Michelin Star food.  I had not sort out the stall but stumbled across it on a hunter-gather dinner mission at the China Town Complex.  It was basic chicken and rice but it was amazing. …

Cairns road trip: Paronella Park

In the third weekend of November, my sister and I took a road trip from Townsville to Cairns in North Queensland. We were taking this trip so I could attend the Professional Development Workshop: GPR and Total Station Basics at the JCU Cairns campus.  The workshop was a great refresher on the basics for me…
