Although this is my 2nd New Year’s Eve in Kuala Lumpur, it’s the first time I ventured out to watch the fireworks at Petrons Twin Towers in downtown KLCC.  My expectations were quite low but honestly I had a great time.  Okay yeah, I stood in the wrong spot and I arrived so late I was in a horrible cattle call style queue where I was groped more times than I can count (a real first for me in Malaysia, I have never been groped here before tonight). …

It felt so amazing to see my YouTube channel grow to over a thousand subscribers today. I’m so grateful and simply want to send a BIG THANK YOU to everyone who has signed on to follow my journey as a Californian living in Asia (specifically, Kuala Lumpur Malaysia at this moment). I love sharing the beauty of living abroad and exploring fabulous places to eat, drink, sleep, and play all around Asia.

Shot this on Day 3 of my new life in Malaysia. I was staying in a service apartment, insanely jet-lagged (translation = NOT looking fresh or rested), and on the hunt for coffee … only to learn the hard way that not all neighbourhoods cater to the ‘morning coffee’ crowd!
