My addiction to travelling stems from growing up in Hong Kong - since its a hub of Asia, it was always easy to goto Colombo, Koh Samui, Phuket, Sydney, Bombay, Dehli, Singapore, Kandy, Islamabad, etc. My friend and I are targeting a trip to Trinidad and Tobago next year, and then Brazil.

My husband and I are foodies; we maintain a list of shacks and five star places we've eaten at: Cafe Versailles in Miami; Thai, Japanese, Fusion, Peter Luger Steaks in Brooklyn, classic pastrami sandwiches at Kat'z Deli, Ethiopian and Argentinean Meats and Grilled Corn with Mayo at Cafe Habana, Coffee at Gitane all in New York City!; dim sum and seafood favorites in Hong Kong are tried and tested; we've tried Portugese, Cuban, Italian and Malay food in Kuala Lumpur, however, the food and travel journey continues...

Workwise, I've been an academic at Universities and consultant to the US government more recently. At the moment, I'm working on writing my own collection of short-stories.

I love people - its my default setting! My basic motto is to live consciously.

As your host, I really want to give a WSYWIG experience - WHAT YOU SEE IS WHAT YOU GET! I myself have dragged suitcases from hotel to hotel, because of dodgy advertisements and want to avoid that for my guests. I'm busy, but never want to be missing if my guests have an issue or if there is any crises. For places to go, eat, meet, party in KL and broader travel in Asia - I come with some solid recommendations!

Really looking forward to welcoming you to this neighborhood, community, city, country.
