Malaysia & Singapore

06_Old colonial houses, Penang(Apr09)

One year into this trip, I've come to realize on a number of occasions that I spend too much time on the photographs, and not enough time on keeping this diary/blog section up to date. To allow for more regular updates in the future, and to make things a bit easier for myself, I'm going to change a few things:

All photos I post on FlickR are in chronological order and most of them have a little write-up underneath them anyway. Hence I feel there's no need to double up on the writing: Have a look at my Malaysia Photo Set on FlickR. If you prefer a more convenient way of viewing the images: here's the same in slideshow format.

A very special thank you for Malaysia and Singapore go to Matt, who kindly took me out for an evening of good food and beverages. And to Sunny and his son Jin Sheng at Sunny Motorcycles in Kuala Lumpur for helping me with the 'big bike service'! Much appreciated, guys :)

Here's a few samples from the Malaysia collection:
