A Few thoughts on Visiting Kuala Lumpur, Genting & Langkawi in 4 days
I recently decided to go on a really really short solo trip to Malaysia right after my MBA Summer internship. Travelling solo is a different experience and definitely not everyone’s cup of tea. But I absolutely love such solo trips because i get to silently experience the scenic views, mountain tops and most importantly drive around fantastic locations. What I realized after this trip is that when I travel alone, visiting the usual tourist traps such as aquariums, bird parks etc are not really the best way to spend time for me as they aren't really that exciting for me.

This blog post is not a review of the places I visited in Malaysia although I do have a penchant to become opinionated at times! This blog post spreads out all the little tips that I learnt and used while I was in Malaysia. I am pretty hopeful that these pointers will make your next trip to Kuala Lumpur, Genting & Langkawi worthwhile, me…

A Different Perspective (Alternate Title: Acknowledging my long lost creation!)

A DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVE
A bit of background on this post. This is what I call an orphaned post. I wrote this once but didn't have the guts/temperament to actually publish it because I didn't think I was ready to take on this topic. Hence Orphaned. The word "Orphan" in fact describes this blog post quite well(i.e it is an abandonment of something I created because I wasn't ready to consider it my creation.

The good thing is nearly 6 years later, I dusted this post of my evernote account hidden in one of the archives inside. And I think this post makes for an interesting read for me because  a)It's always fun to read what you thought of life years ago. I was pretty agitated and belligerent back then.

The year is 2025. Mr. Palmer Luckey is a 41-year-old married man living in Chicago and can be described as your typical office goer. He has a 9-5 job, rarely takes vacations, and is always on time in coming to office. He doesn’t work on Sundays and so Sunday is when Palmer does all the exciting things he plans to do. Palmer is a paragliding enthusiast. He loves to go paragliding at any opportune moment. Opportune moments unfortunately only come on Sundays! This Sunday he has decided to go to Julian Alps in Slovenia, one of the best recommended paragliding locations in the world. He has already paid for the trip, so it’s only a question of getting ready! Palmer also has this secret ambition of being a public speaker, something which his job never encouraged nor was required. This Sunday after paragliding in Slovenia, he plans to spend the afternoon giving a speech on “The Future of Extreme Sports” in front of a live audience. He still hasn’t decided the venue but he is preferential tow…
