Kek Lok Si: Penang Island’s Must-See Temple

Known as one of Southeast Asia’s largest Chinese Buddhist temples, it is an atrocity not to get a glimpse of Kek Lok Si Temple when in the island of Penang. The temple is a pilgrimage site to some Buddhist followers in Southeast Asia and when […]

Penang’s Thriving Street Art Scene

Penang is a place brimming not only with excellent food but with a flourishing and lively art scene. This current interest in the art scene can be attributed to artist Ernest Zacharevic’s murals, which shot the city to fame in 2012. Nowadays, even more walls […]

Parasailing in Langkawi

Parasailing in Langkawi

And then I realized, Adventures are the best way to learn! 

I am a believer that there are adventures waiting for us out there, if we are just willing to open ourselves up to the world. Life does not have to be mundane and we need not live like a boring lot. Why settle for less when you can have a lifetime of adventures? I have come to a point in my life when I no longer desire material things.

I crave to do things, which will give me an adrenaline rush, adventures which will set my soul ablaze and allow me to experience what it is like to truly live, whether in the clouds, at sea or on land.

One of the things, which I have longed to try, is parasailing. Albeit not as risky as some other extreme sports, it was one thing, which I had on my bucketlist for a long time and I was not going to pass up the chance to finally try it on our very short time off in Langkawi.

The Charming Little Town of Malacca

The Charming Little Town of Malacca

I have always loved the bucolic country life where everything is so simple. No people hurrying about to get to work and no one rushing to the bus stop or the train station. Everyone is just enjoying life at a leisurely pace. I am not sure if it was because we visited Malacca on a weekend or if people there are just less frazzled and bothered but one thing is evident, they surely know how to live and enjoy life and they have some of the best food I have ever tasted in Malaysia.

Malacca is a charming little town. As a matter of fact, it is the most charming little town I have visited so far. There is a palpable feeling of relaxation and just being carefree, luxuries which you cannot afford when you live in a metropolis. Dubbed “The Historical State” because of its long and sometimes bloody history, Malacca is simply gorgeous.

Malacca offer history buffs a list of places which are a must-see and must-visit.  The best part about going there is that the area is small and two days and a night are enough to cover what is significant about the entire town but should you need more time to savor its exquisiteness, three days would be more than adequate.

One of the highlights to any trip to Malacca is the river cruise at night. The canals look very nice at night with all the lights and the quaint little hotels and buildings by the side of the river. There are numerous restaurants where couples eat by candle light, as well as drink wine. Perhaps they also think about their past, the places they have been, and the future where they are heading.

If you are a food connoisseur, you will be very happy to know that there is one long street in Malacca where you can find various dishes which will truly delight your heart. You can find Western, Malay, Chinese and Indian dishes and your fill without breaking the bank.

The trip to Malacca filled my senses. It taught me a little history lesson, allowed me to explore great food and gave me the chance to destress myself.

Legoland, Malaysia! A Playground for Little Kids and Kids at Heart

Legoland, Malaysia! A Playground for Little Kids and Kids at Heart

Legos are everyone’s favorite childhood toys and being in Legoland, Malaysia made me look back to the days when I would build whatever I could think of using Lego bricks. The theme park was full of colours, of Lego people and Lego rides. It was just like being to my carefree childhood days.

The rides are more appropriate for children but this has not stopped eager parents from joining their little children and sharing fun and laughter with them. I, myself, have tried the rides and they gave me quite a thrill.

Legoland

Legoland is located in Johor Bahru, Malaysia, just a short bus ride away from the city-state of Singapore. The bus ride costs about SGD $20.00. The theme park is open from 10am until 6pm. However, during weekends, school and public holidays, the park has longer opening hours. Attraction queue lines close at posted park closing times.

Park guests who come from far places, which make it quite difficult to travel on the same day after visiting the theme park, will find it very convenient to check in at the Legoland Hotel. The reservation operating hours is from 9am to 7pm from Monday to Sunday at +607 597 8888.
