We moved to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia!
As of just a couple months ago, Malaysia wasn't even on our radar as a place we might want to live. About a month ago, however, we decided to make the short flight from Chiang Mai to Kuala Lumpur to visit some friends. During our short stay, we quickly fell in love with the city and the people. We were initially thinking that we'd move to Taiwan so we could continue using our Chinese, but that plan seemed to hit random road blocks along the way and the opportunity to move to Malaysia opened up. Not long after visiting Kuala Lumpur we decided that it would be our next home. We definitely didn't plan to move here so quickly, but with the pollution in Chiang Mai being so bad and forcing us to stay indoors, we packed our bags early and booked a flight. Now here we are!
We are currently staying in an Airbnb, but have actually found an apartment and will be moving in next Thursday. I cannot wait to be settled, to have our own space and to finally have a food photography studio! Oh, and I also got a new camera and lens so I'm super excited to share more recipes with you in the near future!
Today, I'm sharing a full day of plant-based meals from one of our last days in Chiang Mai. I didn't cook much the days before our big move, but thankfully we had some good leftovers to eat up.
I'd love to know if any of you have been to or are currently living in Kuala Lumpur. I have so much to learn about this city and am excited to share more as we continue to settle in.
But for now, lets get onto the food!
Breakfast was a cold version of my chocolate zoats. I've been loving cold breakfasts for a while now and this was amazing, especially topped with peanut butter, pumpkin seeds and coconut flakes.
Lunch was a bunch of random, but delicious leftovers thrown into a bowl. I had made Sesame Ginger Tempeh a couple days before so I had that with some frozen veggies, sautéed greens, couscous salad and hummus. I love meals like this! They're so hearty and full of different textures and flavors!
Dinner was a simple "Faith-meal" as I like to call them. I just had a cold Japanese sweet potato topped with tahini and cinnamon and some roasted veggies on the side. If I'm remembering correctly, I also added a dollop of hummus to the veggies for some protein too!
What is something delicious you ate this past week?
I was wondering you, Bret and Harper being US citizens how long can you live there legally and work there?
Hi Arlene! Depends on what visa we choose long term. There are lots of options for foreigners...tourist, student, retired, business etc. We plan to stay for a while!
Are you doing the 3 month vida and then doing the visa run? or choosing another one ?
We’re currently on a tourist visa so will travel every three months!
