Humans | Edinburgh Fringe 2019

     Ok, this review was meant to be done way sooner, but I've been pretty busy and very stressed lately, for various reasons we won't go into right now. I've seen about half a dozen Fringe shows already this year, but I'm not writing reviews for every single one - I'm mostly picking out the ones I liked best, and that I hadn't seen and reviewed in previous years. 'Humans', performed by Circa, I actually saw on the same day as 'Backbone', with the 2for1 tickets, so obviously it's hard not to compare back to back circus shows with each other!

Backbone | Edinburgh Fringe 2019

     Most years, I see a lot of comedy acts at the Edinburgh Fringe, but this year I've already seen a few other types as well! We're only a week in, but I've already crammed in several shows (including some I saw last year, such as Shit Faced Showtime and The Noise Next Door), taking advantage of the discounts available in the first few days. Anyways, one of the first shows I saw was 'Backbone', performed by Gravity & Other Myths, in McEwan Hall.

Travel Inspiration | Malaysia

     Malaysia is a large country, with dozens of islands as well as the main peninsula, where you'll find the capital city of Kuala Lumpur. It also contains a diverse mix of cultures; there's the indigenous Malay people; the remnants of Portuguese, Dutch, and British colonial rule; and most cities have a Chinatown, Little India, and Arab Quarter now. I spent a week here almost two years ago, which gave me a few days each in Penang, Kuala Lumpur, and Melaka, all on the main peninsula - I didn't have time to see any of the islands! Although it was a short trip, I still saw a lot of the cultural diversity in that time!
