On The Perpetual Saturday, my goal is to provide honest and useful information… like whether a restaurant has a regular toilet or a squat toilet

Hi! I’m Cheryl and I’m the person behind The Perpetual Saturday. I’m originally from Canada, but I’ve returned to my ancestral homeland here in Malaysia. I am bound to my other half, Mark who is usually in photos, behind the camera, or mentioned on this blog. He has a very mobile career that takes us to unexpected places like our current home in Kuala Lumpur… our third stint living abroad. For over a decade we have been each other’s favourite travel companion, and have racked up an ever-growing list of countries we’ve lived in and seen together!
Why call it “The Perpetual Saturday?” Because Saturday is the best day of the week with no responsibilities. You can sleep in, stay up late and do whatever you want. Who wouldn’t want every day to be Saturday… to live The Perpetual Saturday? This blog is full of places you can spend this precious day on!
The Perpetual Saturday Blog
What made me want to start The Perpetual Saturday was that I felt there was a lot of information that was always missing on other blogs. I love trying new restaurants, but every food blog will never have pictures of the menu. We’re avid hikers, but finding detailed maps and guides are tricky. We love to travel, but most travel blogs are just some unwashed nomad telling me the “TOP things to see in X city!” when they only visited for a week and wax poetic about their emotions and don’t provide any helpful content.
On The Perpetual Saturday, my goal is to provide honest and useful information so that you are better informed on whether you want to visit – or avoid – a place. Costs, hiking shortcuts, what’s on the menu that’s shit, and yes, I provide a lot of details about washrooms because I myself have a tiny bladder!
Where ever we end up, I want to share with locals, expats, and vicarious types alike the cool things we find in the places we live or travel to. Most blogs will only write about the most popular destinations, but I want to also provide info about the places that only locals visit. Especially mundane things, from shopping malls to obscure boba tea stalls, because there are some out there that are worth spending your Saturday on!
Thank you for reading more about me! I hope that I can help you with my experiences and that you’ll join me in living a life of The Perpetual Saturday!
