[KUALA LUMPUR] ► Lorong 1/77a: Of Ending and First Times
TEASER ▬ This street was where I ended my first day in Malaysia but it served as the rendezvous of my many first-time experiences and encounters so it meant so much for me.
, a street that is not so crowded and not traffic-infested. Near this hostel are cheap restaurants and eateries offering authentic Malaysian food.

I'm not actually choosy in terms of accommodation. As long as the place is safe, there is a clean toilet, a bathroom and comfortable beds, it's already enough for me. Whenever I do backpacking, I don't want to spend much of my travel funds on accommodations. Actually, I have more budget for food than accommodation because I'm not gonna stay there the whole day. All that I need is a place to sleep and a restroom.
Anyway, Irsia BnB also has free breakfast. If you're a Filipino reading this post right now, don't expect them to serve the typical Filipino heavy breakfast meal with soup and rice. ▼ MALAYSIA
is different from our local set-up. When they say breakfast, it's bread, particularly, sliced bread as we call it in the ▼ PHILIPPINES
. There's also a free coffee but the coffee (including the breakfast) is served only until 10:00 AM (as far as I remember).

[KUALA LUMPUR] ► THE SIGN BOARD
The boys (staff) were all serious. I've wanted a jolly, light and pleasant vibe but they remained serious to the point that I even thought they didn't like me to check-in.
I was immediately asked to pay when I checked-in. Because I only had 50 ringgit notes that time, they allowed me to pay the next day because they didn't have change.
As a conclusion. It's a good place to stay for the price I paid but how I wish the boys showed a warm atmosphere with smile on their faces.
I recommend this place though for its cheap price and convenient location. Room rate starts at 23 RM (~240 PhP).| end |

TEASER ▬ As a millennial, this is not conforming to the 'trend'—doing it because your friend do it. For me traveling is a form of continuous education. No masteral and doctoral degree could ever teach you the way traveling does.
