When Shubhra, the editor of Travel Secrets asked me if I would like to meet her and her team at Kunzum Cafe I readily agreed. It was fun for me when she featured me in her magazine. Travel Secrets is now also on twitter.
So last Sunday we all met at Kunzum Cafe and the surprise for me was that I was the blogger who was supposed to talk at the meet! We were a cozy group but I didn’t expect that the spotlight would be on me!
Meeting Travel Secrets Team and Bloggers at Kunzum Cafe
The good bit was that we talked about everything under the sun related to blogging. It was a pleasure to meet Jupiter Huidrom there. He has done shows with both National Geographic and Fox Traveler. He asked many questions about things companies should know if they want to work with bloggers.
On the other hand as I am not a full time professional blogger I think a lot of my answers are different from professional bloggers but then I could be wrong.
The question that completely floored me? Why do you think people like your blog? I said, “you have to tell me, how do I know?” So do you have any clue why do you like my blog?
In my two short visits to Malaysia I can vouch for one thing, they love to celebrate! I once heard their tourism minister Dato Sri Dr. Ng Yen Yen declare that Malaysia is a land of warm climate, warm water, warm beaches and warm people. I fully agree with that! I would add that Malaysians also love their food and love to celebrate!
I did a short post for Travel Wire Asia on Festivals and Events in Malaysia. Do check it out.

I started my India travel blog, Travel Tales from India in 2005. In 2016 I realized Travel Tales from India and Abroad better reflected my writings. I love to walk and ride in metros around the world. I have not been everywhere, I am not even close, but it is on my list. I also quite my job as a professor in 2015, it was a happening year! I did a Ph.D. from IIT Kanpur ages ago!
