“Why are you going?” is a common question. There’s no reason. It’s probably due to an inebriated night and loss of credit card control. Also the want to see my brother and his wife. Probably the beer mainly though!
The original plan was to buy a motorbike in Malaysia, but it became clear that this was perhaps a slightly exuberant plan. So, I’ve a couple of weeks of bike hire, namely a tour of S Thailand, followed by Jakarta to Bali.
All in all, it’s a big two month holiday that I’ve been looking forward to for a long time now.
So far, it’s great. KL is a great city to spend a while in, and the fact it’s Chinese New Year just adds to the excitement. There’s fireworks going off all over the place and the weather is perfect for me. My base tan, read sunburn, is perfectly fine. All of that in overcast conditions. So, Gong Hey Phat Choy to all.
