This street was where I ended my first day in Kuala Lumpur but it served as the rendezvous of my many first-time experiences and encounters so it meant so much for me.
[Kuala Lumpur Federal Territory, Peninsular Malaysia, West Malaysia, Malaysia]
I stayed in a dormitory-type room with bunk beds. There are other guests when I entered the room. They were all white travelers. I was the only Asian inside our room.
A street fam-tour and the search for food
I enjoyed the food, but more than the food are these countless first time travel experiences that taught me to believe that the world, though getting smaller, is complex.
. I said it was partly closed because only the area close the street was open for dining. The chairs and tables in the other parts of the restaurant were already kept. The lights were turned off too. I think I was their last customer. There were two Malaysians when I entered the restaurant.
The moment I saw the food, I was at least relieved to know that the food is somehow related to my Filipino comfort meals.
. Without any hesitation, I ordered their bestseller at 7 ringgits (~80 pesos).

✈ BLOGSERYE 03: MALAYSIA-THAILAND BACKPACKING + MOTORBIKE RIDING FOR THE FIRST TIME OUTSIDE PH
Blogserye 03 is a series of narratives and stories about my first backpacking abroad covering Malaysia and Southern Thailand.
If you loaded this page expecting for tourist attractions to see in less than 24 hours in Kuala Lumpur, I'm sorry to disappoint you but this is not a story of tourist spots but tourist stops. Yeah, stop here, stop there, stop everywhere.
Chapter 01 is all about first-time stories. Will this boy from the province with relative fear in roaming a big city survive his first day in a big metropolis for the first time outside PH?
✈ EPISODE 01: ▼ Flying from Metro Manila to Kuala Lumpur with Drama in Between
I was shaking, quite speechless for outspoken words but the voice within me is speaking too much that it's so hard to handle...
✈ EPISODE 02: ▼ Travel Drama in Kuala Lumpur International Airport 2 (KLIA2)
My anxiety as a first-timer almost escalated to panic level. So there's no such thing as overacting because sticking to reality is the name of the game here.
✈ EPISODE 03: ▼ KLIA2 to KL Sentral by Bus: My First Land Travel Outside PH
I was showing physical awestruck signs overtly while inside the bus because I was seeing different races. There are Malays, Indians, Chinese, black and white men. This country is so multicultural! This is my first bus ride in Malaysia!
✈ EPISODE 04: ▼ Reaching KL Sentral and How I Acted Dumb Stupid
You may not believe this but I felt so ignorant about this. There's no train station in our province so encountering a self-service machine like this in actual setting is new to me.
✈ EPISODE 05: ▼ KL Sentral to Bukit Bintang: My First Train Ride Outside PH
The monorail runs overground. I saw the city of Kuala Lumpur in a general perspective up close—the modern skyline, the lush parks, the mosques, the busy roads and the residential areas. I enjoyed it.
✈ EPISODE 06: ► Lorong 1/77a: Of Ending and First Times
BLOGSERYE 03 SUMMARY: ▼ MALAYSIA-THAILAND BACKPACKING + MOTORBIKE RIDING FOR THE FIRST TIME OUTSIDE PH
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.

 The insights, condition and name of places or properties I mentioned here are based on the facts and situation on the day of my visit. Take note that you may have a different experience when you try or see the properties or places mentioned here. Names of places and properties may also change by time so it's not my responsibility to update all the information on this blog because once published, I already consider it an archive and I won't update my narratives because I want them to become my references of what have happened in the past. I'm very particular of the dates because I want my amazing readers to understand that I am writing stories based on my perspective and insights on the day of my visit. You can see dates almost everywhere on this blog. Exempted from this rule are my travel guide posts that need to be updated.
