travel kuala lumpur 74 travel kuala lumpur 75 travel kuala lumpur 76… annnnd this is how our trip came to an end. with cupcakes in our mouth and tears in our eyes. you know, it’s truly a rare thing to find a person who you can call a great travel companion. cos more often times than not travelling can bring out the worst in a person. you know that’s the case when you spend most of the time trying so hard not to pull all of your hair out (or theirs). frankly i’m quite picky when it comes to choosing people i genuinely enjoy spending my time with. so when i come across a relationship like this, i can’t help but feel so blessed and thankful for the opportunity that allowed our path to cross in such way.
