Hi! ❤

My name is Ortolana Clare & I'm a Malaysian blogger.
I was born in Sandakan, Sabah (yes, that's where all the orangutans are) on the 17th of October ♎. 
I currently live, work and play in Kuala Lumpur and have been here since 2010 (Omg... Wow).
As the youngest in my family, I receive lots of love from both my parents and my 4 older brothers. (#spoiled haha)

Some facts about me:
⬥ I can't eat spicy food
⬥ I'm allergic to shellfish (just mildly... but I don't like getting swollen lips and an itchy throat)
⬥ I love tea (even herbal teas)
⬥ I can draw (not very well)
⬥ I can play the ukulele (also not very well)
⬥ I speak 5 different languages (English, Malay, Kadazan, Japanese and Korean)
⬥ I love kaiju (Godzilla ftw)
⬥ I love travelling (I want this to be my job one day)
⬥ I love zombie movies (I've watched all kinds... Even movies about zombie sheep)
⬥ I used to work at Starbucks (I know the difference between a latte and cappuccino woo!)
⬥ I dream in colour
⬥ I love lipsticks

My Unhealthy Obsessions include:

▽ Kamen Rider
▽ Ultraman
▽ Pacific Rim (I've watched this movie at least 50x)
Tarot & Witchcraft (totally still Catholic tho)
Paranormal Stuff *insert X-files theme here*
▽ YouTube Gamers & Japanese YouTubers
▽ Animals being dumb
▽ Memes

Why I started this blog:
I used to blog actively when I was in high school secondary school but I stopped abruptly when I arrived in KL to study. There were too many things to do, people to meet and things to see that I completely abandoned my blog. It has gone into the giant Internet recycle bin in the sky, but I'm sure you can still read my ramblings on Web Archive.

Anyway, I started again (sometime in August 2016) after watching a colleague and now good friend, Iday of Sayaiday blog every day. It looked like a lot of fun and spoiler, it is. So, I decided to give it a go again. 

Now, I wish I started sooner. haha

What I blog about:
I blog about a whole bunch of random things.
I post about my travel adventures, my recommendations (for food, accommodation, etc) and travel tips.
I also do lots of reviews for movies, TV shows, cafes, restaurants.
However, you'll also find a bunch of off topic posts about things such as art or hobbies (Postcrossing) that I want to share.
