I’m on Runaway Juno representing Kota Kinabalu

Mount Kinabalu

I interrupt our regular post schedule with a BIG announcement!

I’m on Runaway Juno’s Runaway to Sister’s City this week, talking about my dear hometown: Kota Kinabalu, Borneo, Malaysia.

If you are interested to learn more about Kota Kinabalu, here are some primer (actually, almost all of KK posts here):

For my regular readers who do not know about Juno, you should check out Runaway Juno blog now! (OK, maybe after reading the rest this posts.)

A few of my favorite Runaway Juno posts are the one where she talked about how she took a giant leap and also discussed things that I would (cowardly) rather sweep under the rug.

Until next travels! Stay safe.

Why you should visit Singapore’s Arab Street in the early morning

Arab Street Singapore

I like Arab Street for its food and the pretty Sultan Mosque.

But whenever I am in the area, the sun is shining too brightly and I feel dehydrated from walking around. There is just too much noise and people–the tourists with their gigantic cameras, cars waiting for the green light and shops laying out their wares on the sidewalk.

It’s sometimes a little too much to handle.

One day, I had the chance to visit Arab Street early in the morning around 7am. It was a different Arab Street without the people and the cars.

It was a little surreal but I liked it. The sun wasn’t out yet and the people were still away.
