🇬🇧English  🇮🇹Italiano 🇬🇧Ready for my second day in Kuala Lumpur! Tim and I had a quick shower and went to the kitchen of the hostel to have breakfast, as in a lot of hostels in Asia, breakfast was toast with butter but we also tried the popular coconut jam called Kaya. Kaya means “rich” in Malay and it ‘s actually the perfect word for the coconut jam that is very thick, creamy  and sweet. 🇮🇹Eccomi pronta per il mio secondo giorno a Kuala Lumpur! Kuala Lumpur si è distinta anche nella colazione, infatti ci ha permesso di assaggiare la tipica marmellata malese chiamata Kaya ( negli altri ostelli la colazione era sempre stata pane, burro e banane). La kaya è una marmellata di cocco e uovo […]

Kuala Lumpur

September 4, 2015 // 0 Comments

🇬🇧English  🇮🇹Italiano 🇬🇧 What can I say about Kuala Lumpur, also called KL? It was beyond my expectations! As I wrote in my previous post I flew to Malaysia only because I found a cheap flight, few backpackers that had traveled there told me it was not anything special. Well, I am glad I didn’t pay too much attention to their opinions! 🇮🇹Cosa posso raccontarvi su Kuala Lumpur, chiamata KL dai suoi abitanti? Bè… sicuramente ha superato ogni mia aspettativa! Come ho già scritto nel post precedente, sono andata in Malesia solo perché i voli erano economici, molti viaggiatori mi avevano detto che la terra di Sandokan non era nulla di speciale e io, come al solito, non ho ascoltato nessuno e sono partita alla scoperta […]

Goodbye Indonesia, hello Malaysia

August 13, 2015 // 0 Comments

🇬🇧English  🇮🇹Italiano 🇬🇧I had spent two weeks and a half in Indonesia and it was time for a change. I wasn’t sure whether to go to Myanmar or straight to Thailand but when I checked the flights fairs I realised going to Malaysia would have been way cheaper. I booked a flight to Kuala Lumpur and left Indonesia 2 days later! WELCOME TO MALAYSIA!!!  My first impression of Malaysia was that I was in a more modern country than I had been before: nice roads, a lot of facilities, wifi everywhere… The second thing that I’ve noticed is that It’s a multicultural country, it’s litterally the whole world in one country! I loved that! 🇮🇹Dopo due settimane passate ad esplorare l’Indonesia, ho deciso di cambiare aria […]

The Prambanan temple and the carnival in Yogyakarta

March 18, 2015 // 2 Comments

I spent my second day in Yogyakarta visiting the Prambanan temple with my new friend Matteo. I forgot to tell you that the day before, when Matteo and me went to Malioboro street by jeca, the driver of the jeca wanted to take us to a shop of marionettes, he was insisting so much that we told him we would go the day after. Well, when we left the hostel in the morning, the driver was there, waiting for us, ready to take us to this marionettes place! We tried to sneak out but he saw us and followed us saying “ today you don ‘t give me a job, no job today”, so we just told him to take us to the bus station […]

My first crazy day in Yogyakarta

March 12, 2015 // 0 Comments

When I left Bali to go to Java I was not expecting adventures 24/7, I thought I would have taken my time and relaxed a bit but every single day on the island was unexpectedly crazy! I arrived in Yogyakarta the 28th of February, I left my backpack in the hostel and went to explore the city straight away. The first impression was not that good, I did not feel safe and the heat was killing me even if it was only 9 am. Quando ho deciso di lasciare Bali per andare a Java, sapevo che avrei visto posti bellissimi ma mai mi sarei aspettata di vivere 7 giorni di avventura continua. Sono arrivata a Yogyakarta il 28 febbraio e, dopo aver lasciato il mio […]

Cooking class in Bali

February 23, 2015 // 0 Comments

I am Italian and of course I love food, I love cooking it and eating it and I think it is important to be open to  other flavors. That’s why I have decided to attend a cooking class in Ubud, Bali. The class is organized by a Balinese chef that owns a farm in the countryside, the good thing about it is that you pick up all the ingredients you need to cook in the farm and you actually know what you’re going to eat. Sono italiana e ovviamente amo mangiare e cucinare, penso sia importante non radicarsi ai sapori della propria cucina ma essere aperti a nuovi sapori ed è per questo che ho deciso di frequentare una classe di cucina balinese. La classe […]
