My Journey in 2011

Mar 3, 2011 - cooking in Kota Bharu

We've called this cooking in KB for 2 reasons, 1),it's absolutely baking hot ,and 2) we've been shown how to do proper Malaysian cooking. We very nearly didn't come to Kota Bharu, but I'm so glad we did, because we've had an amazing time here. It's 1 and a half hours in the opposite direction from the Cameron Highlands, which is our next stop where we're meeting Eva and John, so I was still a bit undecided when we got off the boat. I nipped off to the loo and when I returned, Theo had negotiated a price for a taxi to KB. That seems cheap I...

Oct 3, 2009 - Kota Bharu

Oct 3-4th, 2009 Kota Bharu is found in the Northeast corner of the country and has a large Islamic population. It was our stop over on our way to Taman Negara. We didn't have a chance to check out the sights. We basically ran errands and hit up the market for some fine dining. We were feeling adventurous and had a spread of goodies from various food stalls. The mystery banana leaf wrap was quiet yummy and the chocolaty dessert with a little Malaysian flag on a toothpick was delightful. Other than that...the other treats were OK to...

Jun 25, 2009 - Kota Bharu

Mit dem Nachtbus reiste ich von Butterworth nach Kota Bharu. Eigentlich eine tolle Idee, sparte ich doch damit eine Uebernachtung und einen Reisetag. Dummerweise hielt der Bus etwa alle zwei Stunden und neben mir sass ein unangenehmer Zeitgenosse, der mich weckte, wenn er rauswollte. Die uebrige Zeit schnodderte und rotzte er die ganze Zeit vor sich hin... ;o( Da ging das Super-VIP-Gefuehl etwas floeten ;o) Voellig uebernaechtigt traf ich dann morgens um 5 Uhr (!!!) in Kota Bharu ein und schleppte mich schlaftrunken zum Guesthouse, das...

Nina in Malaysia

Jul 12, 2008 - Adieu, Dearest Friends

The day has finally arrived! Although it's understandably imaginable, but the truth is I never could really grasp the reality of actually living my homeland for another country until today. After a short months of pondering, planning, and getting my nerves put together to make today works, only now I find myself giddy with excitements, fears, and anticipation. Looking back, pushing through from March until July, I had undergone many different events, incidents, and experiences which I think worth more than a lifetime. Living a life after...

Jul 30, 2007 - Back On The Road!

Hello again It feels like a long time since we sat in an Asian internet cafe and wrote an update for our website. Nearly 3 months in fact. As you know our last update was in May explaining that our trip was on hold and we were back in Scotland due to the fact that my Dad was very unwell in hospital. Well a lot has happened since then and I'm very sad to report that after a very tough fight my dad passed away on the 8th July in Falkirk Infirmary. So with a heavy heart but an absolute determination to continue as we know it is what Dad would...
