I spent most of January in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia for work and had the incredible opportunity to also take a weekend trip to Ubud, Indonesia. I really enjoyed KL and spending time in-person with my colleagues. Here are pics of the awesome vegan eats in KL and Ubud, plus a few snaps of local sights for good measure.
Kuala Lumpur: A Melting Pot of Delicious Vegan Cuisines
Kuala Lumpur is a beautiful, sky scraper-filled city with a lot of vegan-friendly cuisine. My colleagues in KL took amazing care of me while I was there for work, and showed me some of the best local vegan eats, which most of the time were to be found in the form of sumptuous street food. Malaysian food is influenced by Chinese, Malaysian, Indian and other Asian cuisines, and it’s no wonder the country is one of the top foodie destinations worldwide.
I had the opportunity to take a quick weekend trip to Ubud and I was so happy I did. I stayed at Yoga Barn, a relaxing cafe-yoga-hotel near central Ubud, and enjoyed yoga, chanting, meditation, relaxation, and delicious wholesome vegan food.
Life Transitions And Gratitude
On a personal note, this spring has involved some life transition for me. Court and I recently ended our relationship; we’re still friends and both love you all, so please stay in touch with both of us!
A happier update: I still live in Boulder and am privileged to be frequently in the Bay Area for work. I run a local LGBTQ Tech meetup here in Boulder, and the events we put on are of course vegan-friendly. We recently put on a LGBTQ tech meetup at Twitter in Boulder, for instance, and worked with their awesome team to cater the event veg. There’s a much longer blog I could write about the intersections between queerness, veganism and tech. Now that I think about it I probably will spill some proverbial ink on this subject at some point.
In closing, thanks to you, readers, for the amazing advocacy work so many of you do for human- and non-human animals. One of my favorite things about this blog is getting to connect with incredible people like you who are changing the world. These connections motivate me to do more and help more and post more on this blog. Thank you for inspiring me. I look forward to continuing to share vegan adventures and queer vegan cuisine here and am grateful to be together on this journey.
