Malacca, Malaysia

Today I visited a "Gurdwara", a Sikh temple. All Gurdwaras have halls were free meals are served for people from any faith (or no faith). The experience was awesome, and the food was not only free but delicious. I truly recommend it to anyone.

Malacca, Malaysia

The city of Malacca (or Melaka) has been gaining popularity since 2008, when it achieved UNESCO World Heritage status. Still, it feels like a calm city, where you can sit and relax for a few days, after the craziness of KL. And don't even get me started with the food! So many things to try, like "Nyonya"-style food (Chinese & Malay fusion).

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

I visited Kampung Baru today, a neighborhood in KL that feels just like a village. Walking around Kampung Baru feels almost surreal: shanty houses and banana trees with KL's tallest skyscrapers as a background. After a 2 hour bus ride I arrived to Malacca.

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Kuala Lumpur is a big, modern, and diverse city. And when I say diverse I mean truly diverse: cuisine, architecture, religion, you name it. The Petronas Twin Towers are so beautiful, and you can get a great view (and pics) from the KL Sky Bar, although expect some pricey drinks.

Cameron Highlands, Malaysia

Malaysians have been the nicest people I've met so far. Today I met "Selva", the owner of a small food stall in Cameron Highlands called "Gerai Bunga Melur". He introduced me to his family, we chatted about the current Malaysian political situation, and he even gave me some coconut dessert for free. Now I'm on the move again. My next destination, the big capital of Malaysia: Kuala Lumpur.
