Oct 21, 2004 - Penang

We have now mastered the art of traveling so set off for Penang armed with a loaf of bread, cheese slices, a bag of cheese and onion crisps and some orange juice! The bus didn't stop in the 8 hours journey so we made butties on the bus and got some very strange looks of our fellow travelers, but we think they were just envious! We arrived in Penang in the afternoon and decided to head straight for the beach. We stayed in Batu Ferraghi (foreigner's rock). It was nice but it was very touristy and was full of Brits and Australians, all the...

Hey Yall... I'll be short this time as I am using computer at internet cafe to let yall know that Mark and I are OK! We left Kuala Lumpur for Georgetown, Penang.

Jan 24, 2004 - Hello from Tanjung Tokong

Subject: Hello from Tanjung Tokong Hello: Well as many of you know we spent the last 5 weeks in Sydney and we really loved the location. It was difficult leaving a place that suited us so well. However everything in life moves on one way or another. The waiting for and the actual flight to Kuala Lumpur (capital city of Malaysia) was long but relatively uneventful. We arrived at midnight our time and were too tired to deal with hawksters trying to get us take their taxi or to their hotel. By Malaysian standards we got ripped off but by...
