Satay Brothers

Going on exchange may be one of the best things I’ve ever done in my life. Saying goodbye to a place that has given you so much really does feel like you’re leaving home (home is where the heart is…or in my case where the oily food that made me gain 10 lbs is). My friend, DC, who also happened to go on exchange to Singapore the semester before mine was also “homesick” so we decided to visit the only Singaporean resto that I know in Montreal (If there are more please give me a shout out, definitely want to try your laksa).  Thus, meet Satay Brothers.

Unbeknownst to me before moving away from the…

One Night in KL…*and day – Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Alas, I must blog about my time in Southeast Asia #ForTheFans (-awkward chuckle-…what fans…). Last weekend I embarked on an adventure to Malaysia with 3 other lovely ladies. This was my first trip out of Singapore and definitely the first of many other trips to come. Since there is so much content to this trip, I’m going to dedicate each post to one location just so that I can put enough informative content and not make it dull to my dear readers. Let us begin. To start off any trip out of a country, one must leave the country. I took a flight with Air Asia in the wee hours of the morning to Kuala Lumpur. Keep in mind that this plane ride is about an hour long. So I literally got on a plane, took a nap, woke up, and landed in another country. *Note to self, bring a…
