Malaysia and Singapore


21 February 2017

After spending 3 days in Singapore, we finally arrived in Bali, the last destination before leaving Asia. I will not post any photos this week because we want to enjoy our time with Ben and Kim. You may find it hard to believe me, but this blog often takes me a whole morning or afternoon. I like to bother my head with what to publish and how to comment so that no one finds it boring ๐Ÿ˜ But I promise to spoil you with magnificent photos in a few days and until then enjoy the carnival celebrations and a well deserved holiday.๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿคก

Malaysia continues to enchant us until the end! Melaka is our last stop before going to Singapore tomorrow. Like other cities in this country the diversity is fascinating and as Melaka is Malaysias oldest port, it has been influenced by the the Portuguese, the Dutch, the Chinese, the Tamils and the Malays themselves. Check out the amazing mix on these pictures!๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡พ

Yesterday I was fortunate enough to teach a lesson at a private school. The school has 140 pupils aged between 3 and 6 years. They learn to speak English as well as Malay. The subjects taught are roughly the same as those of us. They also learn songs about the qoran which was very interesting to see and discover. The teachers warmly welcomed us which made me feel very comfortable! ๐Ÿ˜Š To be honest, I was very nervous the day before๐Ÿ™ˆ. You don't get to teach in front of more than 100 students every day by using a microphone because otherwise it's almost impossible to be heard! ๐Ÿ˜ Dino was nicknamed "Sir" and his only task was to take the pictures, no classes for him this time! ๐ŸŽค๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ€๐Ÿ’›
Nature at it's purest...Today we're heading back to Kuala Lumpur. We're travelling 450km with the train and will arrive at the end of the day. Stay tuned๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿšˆ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡พ

All you need is vitamine SEA ๐Ÿ˜โ˜€๐ŸŒด๐Ÿ’... Langkawi is a beautiful island with gorgeous beaches and nature. It is also a place where tourists (like usโœŒ๐Ÿผ) have to translate their international driving license to grumpy policemen ๐Ÿ‘ฎ ๐Ÿ‘ฎ while ten year old boys seem to have no problem racing around on their motorbikes ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ!

Dear all, this will be our home for the next few days. We are now in Langkawi and will be spending some time in the middle of the island, surrounded by rice fields, jungle, birds and monkeys. I will try to post some pictures soon. ๐Ÿ’๐ŸŒด I would also like to thank you for the interest that you carry to my blog since the beginning of this adventure! Thanks to you, it has been put online and can be seen worldwide! ๐Ÿ’› We love you!

Georgetown, our favorite city so far is preparing for festivities which will last 14 days. Beautiful Chinese temples are being decorated for the Chinese New year which starts tomorrow night. 2017, year of the Rooster! ๐Ÿ”๐ŸŽŠ๐Ÿฎ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ณ
George Town is an amazing and charming city! It has so many colors and art is found at every corner. It is a true pleasure to just walk in its streets and enjoy the vibe. The historic centre of the city is even a Unesco World Heritage Site! Besides of the culture, many people say that George Town is Malaysia's, if not Southeast Asia's, food capital! It's home to some distinct cuisines like Malay, Indian, Chinese and Peranakan or Nonya which is a blend of Chinese, Malay and sometimes Thai. So Dino is having a really goood or let's say a fooood time! ๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿ˜ญ ๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡พ

Here we are again, exploring a new country for the seventh time in almost 6 months of travel! We landed in Malaysia two days ago and even if we are getting used to southeast Asian countries, Kuala Lumpur surprises us with its fascinating diversity! It truly is a city of contrasts: you have a very modern city with skyscrapers and newest technology and at the same time old traditional houses and even villages. Then you have parts of forest that stand out in the urban environment and finally, you have a huge mix of cultures. Mosques, temples, churches, chinese decorations and indian spices make this city the most diverse we have seen so far. ๐Ÿ˜Š
