Back to civilisation

Friday, 25 Nov 2011 | Views [765]

I have been very much enjoying being back in civilisation for the last month. I left Belum Eco Resort a week short of my two month commitment as an artificial reef had been started and the boss seemed to have little enthusiasm for an environmental ... Read more >

Lazy livin on Lake Temengor

Sunday, 25 Sep 2011 | Views [730]

Batu Caves

Tuesday, 6 Sep 2011 | Views [373]

After the weekend I thought I would head out to the tourist site of Batu Caves. You can get to these caves by a short $1 ringgit train ride but with a huge bus parking area it is obviously part of the tour route. There are three main caves in ... Read more >

First weekend in KL

Monday, 5 Sep 2011 | Views [382]

With departure from Brisbane at 11.20pm on 31 August the red eye flight getting here was not too bad as I did manage to sleep a little bit. Did not help that the cabin lights were not turned off until about 1am then turned back on at 5.30am to ... Read more >
