Here you won't find the pages of a pedantic journal, praises to fantastic places or accounts of memorable encounters. This is a collection of stories, thoughts, images, and most of all odd stuff, even though to someone else it might actually look ordinary. To discern its bizarre side, in fact, special filters are needed: cynicism, fussiness, stubbornness, isolation, impudence, nosiness and nerdiness. All flaws that, in different measure, this semi-nomadic being has got embedded in his genes.

The city's soul - Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
It seems that Kuala Lumpur is getting its charm back.
It used to be a great place until a few years ago. Then something changed and it became a bit dull, shallow and vain, all fashion and fast cars. As if it was trying to emulate Singapore, only selecting from its negative features. Little by little the city soul is coming back, as if it was waking up after a long and deep sleep.
This is great news, an encouraging change: one cannot come here just for work and good food!
