Hi, I’m Marty Spargo.

I first came to Kuala Lumpur (KL to the locals) in 2004. I was there for 3 weeks and remember being amazed by the city.

The food, the people, the buildings.

Everything seemed so interesting.

Actually, a quick funny story about that first visit… A friend that I was here with for those 3 weeks put on 10kg in those 3 weeks. That’s 22 pounds!

Yes, the food is THAT good.

Over the years I visited KL many more times, but only for a few days at a time.

In early 2018, I spent about 6 weeks in KL and decided to move there soon after.

After getting stuck in Australia while on a 3 week visit (that ended up being about 3 years if you remember what was going on in the world around that time!) I now live in Malaysia once again.

Initially only focussed on Kuala Lumpur, over the years I’ve broadened the scope of the website to cover lots of other places that I travel to as well.

When I travel, I like to be comfortable and generally lean towards premium experiences… but not at any cost.

Cost is certainly an important factor, and if I don’t feel that the price tag is justified, I won’t pay it. So if that sounds like the way that you like to travel, I hope that you find this website useful.
