Hey, I’m Mel!

Hi I'm Mel, currently a student in the UK.

I've lived in four out of six continents: I was born in Malaysia; lived in Texas, USA; and studied in Melbourne, Australia and Birmingham, UK. Each of these places has its charms; nice weather, fascinating histories, friendly people, etc. But I have to say out of the four, Malaysia is very close to my heart. It's hot and sunny, and it has the most amazing food. Great shopping too.

As for the five things I can't live without, they would have to be; art, the internet (for all the tv shows and movies I miss living without a tv), tea, books and Asian food of practically any kind. The first three are a comfort and the last two I need regular doses to survive. And yes, I do travel with at least one book in my bags.
Speaking of which, I do try to travel light - clothes, one pair of shoes, the aforementioned book (or books), toiletries. I try to visit museums and historical sites in every place I visit, but I have a special place in my heart for craft and food markets.

I'm not sure I have a life motto, but I'll leave you with my favourite quote; "I have loved the stars too fondly to be fearful of the night".
