If there's ever a civilisation that flourish due to the people's love for food, my hometown, Muar, fits that description perfectly. Muarians love to eat. I grew up living in a food culture where eating is a way of life and not just something that we do when we are hungry. It's what binds us Muarians together regardless of race and made us so unique, because you can hardly spot any obscenely obese person in the whole jurisdiction, despite our so called "unhealthy" passion for food! This trip, we were lucky enough to have my inlaws with us to sample the great food of Muar. We decided on having dinner at Muar Soup House and this photo of daddy enjoying the bone marrow from a piece of lamb shack is indeed a great testament on how delicious the meal was! Humble background as the business started years ago by serving soup from a push cart (I can still remember queuing up to buy packets of soups and Indian rojak from them when I was still in school), today, the business has flourished so much, it is now operated from 2 shoplots at Jalan Sisi, Muar and serving a whole range of food to satisfy everyone's craving. This is definitely one of our favourite evening hangout as the fragrant thick broth from the soup is just devine to be enjoyed in the company of family and friends. A true Muar icon that is consistent with their quality that never disappoint. A definite 👍🏽👍🏽👍🏽.

Your world can feel chaotic, draining, overwhelming, if you don't create a space where you can pull away from your everyday, and renew your mind for the present moment, for tomorrow, and for what you wish to see in your future.
Maya bay is an amazing beautiful bay with cliffs as high as 100 metres on 3 sides. The best time to visit Maya Bay is between November and April during the high season when seas are calm and access to the bay is easy. Rough seas from May to October may hinder access but rarely deny entry. There is an entry fee of 400 THB per person. 😍
>>Classic Journeys’ Founders, Edward and Susan Piegza, are currently doing what they do best – traveling and scouting a tour! Their behind-the-scenes takeover continues<< We had a lovely time exploring the walled hill town of San Gimignano, which is known for its 14 medieval towers. During its heydey, this city boasted over 70 towers. Luciano and Priscila, our local guides, explained how these towers were used both for defensive purposes, as well as for ego building (as their owners competed to see who could build the highest tower). It was quite an experience!" - The Piegzas.
We were able to camp on the virgin island in Bantayan. This was probably one of the coolest things I've done in my life, not only were we the only ones on the island, but we were also accompanied by a security guard with a huge riffle that told us "keep your eyes open for pirates."
