Singapore, The God of Mall Things

SINGAPORE | Monday, 7 May 2012 | Views [844]

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 >

Georgetown

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

MALAYSIA | Wednesday, 2 May 2012 | Views [1170]

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

MALAYSIA | Tuesday, 1 May 2012 | Views [1024]

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 [1595]

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 [1076]

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 >

Sleepless in Kerala

INDIA | Tuesday, 10 Apr 2012 | Views [730]

To further test the idea from my Mumbai money saving expert, I'd book a 2300 train to Mumbai. From there, I'll take a 34 hour train to Trivandrum in Kerala where I'll be spending a few days on Kovalam beach.  On the train to Mumbai, I got upgraded ... Read more >

In Mumbai, I'd bumped into a couple of Scottish girls. As if to show their credentials, they explained some of their money savings tips. An interesting idea is to get an overnight train to the next destination. Effectively saving one night's cost in ... Read more >

Show me the way to Mumbai

INDIA | Tuesday, 27 Mar 2012 | Views [804]

It's week 7 into my tour and I'm flying from Delhi to Mumbai. It felt pretty good to have flown for a change and avoiding the bus/train station madness that usually followed on arrival. Much prose and poetry has been written about the quality of air ... Read more >

Back to the Delhi

INDIA | Thursday, 22 Mar 2012 | Views [412]

After a six hour ride from Haridwar. I'm back in Delhi for some R&R before Mumbai, and to see some things I missed first time round. The main thing to do is of course Akshardham Temple. Essentially a shrine for the Swarminarayan Hindu sect, BAPS.... Read more >
