A Malaysian based in NYC, who is an avid traveler and I understand the struggle of both looking for an affordable place when traveling and having an empty apartment while away. I work in the tourism industry and I can say I love my job. I've been in the city for about 7 years now. Relatively new and I admit I'm still in tourist mode, maybe it'll never wear off. I don't think I'll ever get bored of this city! I love trying as many new restaurants as I can whenever I'm free or taking friends out. Especially friends that visit from all over the world. I love art and try to hone my hobby of painting and making collages by having the corner of our small apartment with my easel and other art supplies. Although I never have time to do so. Reading is another thing that I haven't really got a chance to do these days due to balancing work and everyday activities. I have so many books just waiting for me to read. I don't have a particular favorite author but I do love Life of Pi by Yann Martel, Joy Luck Club by Amy Tan, Zadie Smith books, David Sedaris writing style is beautiful and so many more known and unknown authors that I'm open to reading. I love watching TV too whenever I get a chance and try to catch any rom coms or stuff like Shameless, Game of Thrones, Anthony Bourdain, travel shows and more. Seeing that we travel a lot, almost 4 to 5 times a year, we make our bookings early and research on attractions via DK Travel Books and the Streetwise 3D maps are our fave! My husband is a huge fan of Rick Steves, who gives the best tips on traveling on a budget in Europe. This would be my first time posting up our apartment on Airbnb and hope that it will be the start of a new chapter of meeting other travelers and sharing traveling stories. I hope our apartment is cozy and provides the right amount of convenience to fellow travelers.
