Fatshion, Food & Frivolities – Life in Las Vegas & Singapore

A 3-day jaunt to Kuala Lumpur – Friends & Food

3 Comments

A much needed shut-down. Joe & I went off to KL, Malaysia for some down time. We met up with friends, had great conversations and good food. I went to get my usual RM7 haircut (it took 1 hour to cut my already short hair but it was worth it), bought some backdated magazines for RM5, got a fancy manicure/pedicure at Soong Ai Ling’s nail spa (RM100 but with the exchange rate, still much cheaper than Singapore) and just chilled out.

That's all I brought. A pink NIKE backpack and my handbag.

My last meal in KL was in a non-descript zinc & wood shack in the middle of a carpark.

And yes, that was my brief holiday. Food & friends and food & friends.

I left Singapore for the US of A in 2013 and now live in Las Vegas with my indie game dev husband and our son Gummi Gumdrop. I am also probably much older than you think I am.
