    Outdoors in Portland, Oregon

    Every time I go to Portland I discover new things and find new favorite places while I'm there. My absolute favorite spot is Pioneer Square. Smack in the middle of downtown, this “outdoor living room" as it’s called can sometimes host flower festivals, be dressed up around the holidays, or simply provide a relaxed place to chill on some stairs or play hacky-sack with friends (it doesn't hurt that there's a Starbucks located at the square, too).

    The abundance of nature in Kuching was a welcomed contrast for a Hong Konger. The beauty of the land, the people, and the union of the two through music was something I'm very glad I was a part of and should be a universal experience. Join me on a climb to a waterfall and more from my first trip to Malaysia after the jump!

    Kuala Kubu Bharu Waterfall

    This waterfall is cool, the water flushing is really strong and fun. The idea of going to this waterfall is to get the total jungle adventures kind of feeling. Being out of the big city, traveling and trekking up hill. Listening to the beautiful sounds of nature. When we were trekking up looking for the waterfall, the water splashing sounds were already been heard and brought all the excitement even before we actually saw the waterfall. Kuala Kubu Bharu itself, is quite a small country sites, where there are still people and community there maintaining the whole place.
