Singapore, The God of Mall Things

SINGAPORE | Monday, 7 May 2012 | Views [795]

I arrived about mid-morning after a short hop from Penang airport. With roughly 2 days in Singapore, I figure there's no need to take a taxi and rush to my hotel. Singapore is a small place, but it still took 1 hour on the MRT to my hotel in Chinatown.... Read more >

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

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 >

Ipoh, the state capital of Perak. Even the brochures from the tourist office struggle to make this place sound exciting. I figure I'll pay a one day visit anyway, which would be enough time to see what's on offer. It also has the advantage of breaking ... Read more >

Tamen Negara - I'm an engineer, get me out of here.

MALAYSIA | Tuesday, 1 May 2012 | Views [1480]

I'd arranged a trip to Tamen Negara National Park through a travel agent in Kuala Lumpur for a not unreasonable RM840 (about 170) for 2 nights and 3 days. Tamen Negara means literally "National Park" in Malay and is a protected rainforest ... Read more >

Kuala Lumpur

MALAYSIA | Monday, 30 Apr 2012 | Views [1031]

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 >
