I made it back down under after what has been the most incredible month of my life. Here’s shot of what a day in the life at Sepilok looks like: Goman on the left (who walks like human) and my beautiful Sepilok on the right (who I felt very connected too.) Protecting these animals is more crucial than ever. They are critically endangered and unless we choose to start making different choices right now – they won’t survive for much longer. I always knew they shared so much of our DNA but after a month with them you start to understand how human-like they really are. They’re so intelligent, so emotional and most of all so vulnerable. I don’t want to live in a world where Orangutans don’t exist. Thank you to my beautiful babies for sharing your magic with me. I will be forever grateful #orangutans #sepilok #conservation

This museum in Kuching is completely dedicated to cats, so if you love cats, you should totally give it a shot. Obviously, there are no livening cats there since it’s a museum, but you’ll definitely come across memorials, various cat paintings, and even stuffed cats. Well, some of you might prefer visiting a place full of lively cats, but for some, it might seem awkward. Any which ways, this museum is definitely not something that should be skipped if you love cats.

5. How about having cocktails at sky bars?

Kuala Lumpur has a beautiful landscape when it comes to looking over from Petronas Twin Towers. Want to have fun and enjoy the view at the same time? Try sipping on some of your favourite cocktails on the sky bars. There are three sky bars that you can check out in Kuala Lumpur, Pacific Standard Bar, Heil Lounge Bar, and Marini’s on 57. Visit any of the three, or probably why not try them all? Get on top of the sky bars, enjoy the view and grab your cocktails. Sounds cool right? It definitely is! This is a perfect way to chill and end your weekend.
