Tea as far as the eye can see

“Let’s escape the heat and humidity and go up the Cameron Highlands”, we thought and did not regret. Only the bus ride up there was incredibly beautiful. There were huge chasms filled with green forests, exactly how I got to know and love Malaysia. The small town of Tanah Rata was of course not really […]

Georgetown, Penang

Here we are, at my favorite place of Malaysia! I’m in love with the colors, temples, street food and of course the artsy places. This city unites all religions basically, every second building is a church/mosque/temple. We ate until we fell from our chair in little India or had a late night chicken satay on […]

Lantau Island, HK

Only a ropeway ride away from busy HK city is the quit, spiritual island of Lantau. They have some highlights there like the Big Buddha and the Po Lin Monastery. For some reason they even brought a couple of cows, who knows… My personal favorite was the room of 10,000 buddhas. Actually the most beautiful […]

Happy Valley Experience

When we made our way from the airport into the city, we came past a shop that caughed my attention. There was nothing but a TV in there and a knot of people around with there mouth wide open and a newspaper in their hand. The sign outside said “Hong Kong Jockey Club” and I […]
