The morning is a bit hectic as I don't have an advance ticket to Penang and didn't set the alarm clock. It's 9.30 before I get to main bus station in Alor Setar and felt fortunate to be ushered onto the bus to Penang just as it was literally leaving.... Read more >

Alor Setar

Wednesday, 2 May 2012 | Views [1299]

Alor Setar in the northern state of Kedah. The place sounded marginally more interesting than Ipoh and I figure I might as well have a look while in the country. At least I can claim to have done a full tour of the peninsular. The place is easy enough ... Read more >

Kuala Lumpur

Monday, 30 Apr 2012 | Views [1219]

I flew in from Hong Kong and an uneventful 4 hour flight later, I'm in Kuala Lumpur. This place is $%^& humid. Rather than take a taxi to my hotel, I wanted to try out the KL Ekpres train from the airport into the city. The system is nearly 10 ... Read more >

Malaysia Stopover

Monday, 13 Feb 2012 | Views [703]

For some strange reason, the options for direct flights from Hong Kong into New Delhi seem to centre around arriving in the early hours, well past midnight. Not really liking this option, I've taken the next worst option of selecting a flight that arrives ... Read more >
