Singapore & Malaysia trip planning

Winter break from University has finally come around and this is the last holiday of my undergraduate course. A bittersweet milestone as I come to complete my double bachelors. So to celebrate, I have enrolled myself in a holiday subject! It isn’t as nerdy as it sounds. This subject enables me to travel overseas, whilst also receiving a Government scholarship which means it is a FREE TRIP!

Next weekend I am heading off to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, as well as Singapore for two busy weeks. The trip is with the UOW Business Faculty and we are jetting off to build relationships with our neighbouring region, South-East Asia. I have saved every dollar of my scholarship and booked the cheapest flights possible, flying with Air Asia to KL and home with Scoot to Sydney. I will however not be roughing it accommodation wise, as the University have booked us into 4-5 start hotels for the trip. I am sure I can live with that.

We have consistently been reminded that this is a subject and we will have to undertake academic work. However they have given us plenty of “free-days” and here are some of the sights I have planned, after speaking to Family and Friends…

Kuala Lumpur:
Taking it to the streets for FOOD!
