Jan 25, 2005 - Malaysia - travelling through

There was a sense of relief on arrival in Kuala Lumpur as we've both been here a few years ago. After months of discovering new places and getting to grips with the different languages, it felt good to be in a familiar city and just do the ordinary things that we are so used to - hitting the shopping malls; lazily drinking coffee while watching the world go by and eating all our favourite comfort foods, especially roti canai (a flaky paratha type bread dipped in spicy curry gravy). We managed to get yet another good deal and stay in a...

Jan 25, 2005 - Kuala Lumpur!

Hello, I have arrived in Kuala Lumpur. I am staying in a small room with two single beds and a fan. It does not even have a window but, I can handle it for two nights. I went to the Hindu festival today. It was very interesting! The festival was held in the Batu Caves just outside the city. It was a hot day and you had to walk up a number of steps to get into the cave. Once I got to the top a girl was laying on the ground almost unconscience, most likely a heat stroke. Men carried large ornamental cofigurations on there shoulders made out...

Jan 21, 2005 - Kuala Lumpur

Hey guys, Well I sucessful found my way to Malayasia though there were times which I wasn't sure that I would. Anyway the bus trip took about 7 hours because there was sooo much traffic because of the holiday. I swear there were like 30 buses just of people going to KL. It was crazy. Anyway the buses were super nice and only had 3 seats per row. So they were really big and reclined like a lazy boy. So I slept most of the way. Anyway I now have a Malayasia stamp in my passport. We arrived in KL and there was so many people at the bus...

Dec 17, 2004 - Kuala Lumpur

KL is a 5 hour bus ride north of Singapore. Two weekends ago, Darlene went to KL with Michael, Shirley, Betty and other friends. In accordance with the usual entertainment agenda of Singaporeans, they stayed in a hotel downtown and shopped. Prices in many places are good, but in the downtown shopping malls, the stores were the same as in anywhere USA or Canada, and the prices were little different. Darlene wanted to go back. As she had to leave the country to get another visitor's Visa, we booked into a 5 star hotel at $100 CD per night,...

Dec 10, 2004 - Old Friends

After sleeping off our hangovers for most of the day we arranged to meet up with a few guys we had met in Redang in Malaysia last year. (Davina just happened to see them at Bangkok airport on her way back out here a few weeks ago which was such a coincidence as we had lost touch.) It was great to meet up with Lexter, Chris and Terry. Lexter took us for traditional clay pot Chinese food, which was very tasty and meaty, then on to Terry's gorgeous house just out of KL centre. Had a fun, civilised night which was much needed after our over...

Dec 7, 2004 - KUALA LUMPUR (Again)

Have just spent four days in Kuala Lumpur, getting to know the city a bit better this time and doing 'the tourist thing!' I have taken the bus out to the nearby Batu Caves, which are these garishly coloured Hindu temples set inside a network of caves. Yet again, got hounded by pesky monkeys. I also went to the National Musem, the Lake Gardens and spent lots of time walking around Chinatown and the old Colonial District, which was pretty cool. I vistied one of the more impressive Mosques but had to wear a headscarf and this huge gown, just...

Jen and Sues trip

Dec 7, 2004 - Kuala Lumpur

Yes Mum this is a real place! We came to KL last year and kinda did all the touristy stuff but we did revisit some old haunts, namely the Indian restaurants where the food is served on a banana leaf and cutlery isn't provided - the food is fab and very cheap. We stayed in a great little hostel near China town and headed for the super sized air-conditioned Malls. Spent a couple of days shopping and had a haircut. We both really like KL, it's a real mix of cultures, easy to get around and is pretty cool. Of course Davina assesses a place on...

Dec 5, 2004 - FIGHT ON! in Kuala Lumpur

How's it go? U-C-L-A SUCKS!! Keep up the good work trojans! KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia- This is my second day in the capital city of Malaysia and I must say I am impressed. After passing endless palm tree farms and Shanty towns on the train from Singapore to Malaysia I was expected your usual shitty third world metropolis. What I got was, well a combination. Part LA (Its Huge), Part NY (Massive sky scrapers everywhere), Part SINGAPORE (Another beautiful green city) and Part QUITO, Ecuador (Confusing, Smelly, and a bit dirty). For a country...

Dec 1, 2004 - Sejour a Kuala Lumpur

OK, so now we're in Kuala Lumpur, an absolutely fantastic city, especially as it is so big! Both Yehia and I have decided that we could very happily live in this city, with it's bustling China Town, grand towers and multi-cultural population. We spent a lot of our time in China Town, which had an awesome night market where a lot of the same things were on sale from stall to stall, and everyone tried to pull you in and bargain a deal for junk you really didn't need! However, there was awesome cheap Malai food, and we definetely gorged...

Nov 29, 2004 - Leaving Thailand!!

Dear Fellow friends and family, Well we have decided to leave our beautiful Dreamteam Resort alittle earlier than expected. We are not sure how much money I have actually left on my visa card.

We had sad goodbyes to the staff at DREAMTEAM RESORT this morning. After spending neally three weeks with them we have become good friends. They are all so friendly and helpful, especially "Nong"(the waitress) who...

Nov 19, 2004 - Onward to Southeast Asia

November 19th Having done everything I wanted to or could (I passed on an overnight at Mount Cook because of weather and hurtin' knees), I decided to leave the fabulous South Island of New Zealand a few days early, and make my way to southeast Asia. So, here I am in the Kuala Lumpur airport, passing time during my 14 hour layover. I got here last night at 8:00 local time (or 1:00AM New Zealand time), and hung out, took in the sights of this new world and had dinner with two folks from the Neatherlands - before heading to bed....
