Greetings from the 86th floor of the Petronas Towers 👋🏼 I have visited KL in 2009, 2018 & 2020 but it’s taken me till now, 2021 to finally journey to the top 🖤
When exploring abandoned places in the jungle remember to wear closed shoes or end up with plagued feet 😩🙄🤦🏼♀️🦟 Was totally worth it though🏮❤️
5 months to the day I’ve been living in Langkawi 🌴 How lucky have I been? During the 13 months I’ve been ‘stuck’ in Malaysia I lived in Penang for 5 months, travelled the west coast for a month, travelled the east coast for a month, lived in Johor Bahru for a month whilst island hopping and then I came to Langkawi for a final weeks holiday before my flight back to the UK. 5 months later 👋🏼 still here 🙄 Think it’s important to add that those travels along both coasts were when Malaysia had under 50 cases a day and when I was on the east coast we had less than 10 a day! 10! So whatever transpires in the next week with my visa I’m incredibly grateful for being able to take refuge in this most wonderful country 🇲🇾❤️
The weather today is summing up exactly how I’m feeling about my current visa situation ⛈ A little bit stormy and unpredictable or that could be from the amount of caffeine I just consumed whilst I waited for the weather to pass, as will my mood. What will be will be right?
STOP PRESS ✋🏻 I wrote a blog post! First one in 7 months! 😱 I guess visiting some abandoned places in Langkawi got me all excited again 🖤 One of the places is a snake sanctuary 🐍 According to all the Langkawi tourist websites, this place is still open 🤦🏼♀️ It has however been left to the elements since 2012. Fun little place to explore, even if I did run away from a pack of dogs at the end 🐶😆 Swipe to the end to see the most amazing entrance - a giant concrete snake head! See where else I explored by clicking the link in my bio✌🏻
Today is a good day. Dine in is allowed again, no more take aways in my hotel room. Well, maybe some, but it doesn’t have to be all 👏🏻 Tourist places, the beach, pools, gyms, gatherings and travelling over 10km is still banned but that’s ok. I’ll take a few hours in my favourite cafes for now 📷 pre-MCO 2.0
