Hello, thanks for popping by. Pardon me for any grammar mistakes as I’m not a native speaker. I was born in Malaysia, and I created this site to record my travel experiences, food and drink prices from the places I’ve visited, and books that I’ve read.
You may find some helpful information and some boring stuff on my site, so read in your own free will and please don’t come complaining to me that I’ve wasted your time 😊.
How did I come to name the website Travelbookworm? Well, it’s simple because I love them both, Travelling and reading.
In this vast world with a culturally diverse population, landscape and climate, there are many things such as food, cultures, lifestyles or even plants and animals that are very different to what I was accustomed to in Malaysia. The opportunity to experience these new things first-hand is an eye-opener for me.
The amazing people, the unfamiliar food, the great details in the architecture, the astonishing landscape, and all that while breathing in new bits of knowledge brings so much pleasure to my life. I’m currently living in Riga, Latvia.
Previously, I lived in Seoul, South Korea, for two years, in Bogota, Colombia, for three years, in Giza, Egypt for eighteen months, and in the UK for five months. I’m so grateful for the opportunity to live abroad, as it gives me more time to immerse myself in the country while exploring other countries in the region.
I read books daily, and I love reading from my Kindle and rarely from a hard copy. It just makes things easier when I go away for a holiday or relocate to another country without carrying all the books!
My favourite is a book series as it makes me happy knowing that there’s more to come once I finish with the first one, and also I can get to know the character better.
However, reading a series can be a pain in the ass, especially when you have to wait for the sequel to come out. That’s why I’ll always check whether it’s a stand-alone or series and wait for completion before I start reading it.
If you love reading Paranormal Young adult series such as Greek Mythology, Vampires, Aliens, Ghosts, Witches, Time Travelling etc., you can check out my book list and have no worries about getting a cliffhanger!
Please do not hesitate to contact me through Email or any of the listed platforms if you have any inquiries. If you do not receive an immediate response, it could be because I am in a location with limited access. Nevertheless, I will make it a priority to get back to you as soon as possible. You have my assurance on that!
