A Writer's Guide to Cafes in Kuala Lumpur

Easy access to free and fast wifi is one of Kuala Lumpur’s best features. Don’t get me started on its worst features. I actually hated this city, but these cafes are almost good enough to make up for the things I disliked. Almost.

Salmon and green apples – they actually go well together! I will miss this little place.
