Hi Miss Footloose, I’ve been following you since long (although I’ve never told you ;). Yesterday I gave you THE VERY INSPIRING BLOGGER AWARD among 15 others who, at the beginning of my journey in 2012, inspired me and gave me strenght to follow my dreams, write and travel the world.

Should you ever like to try books set in these places though, I’d like to recommend, for Malaysia, local writer Sri Delima’s “As I Was Passing” (Volumes 1 and 2) and, for Hong Kong, Martin… Read more »
