So we’ve just stepped off the plane and everything is different, the smell, the sounds, the heat. This is the third time I’ve been to KL and Id always thought that it was a really westernised place, but that was coming from Thailand or Indonesia. Coming from the UK it’s a world away. You really know you’ve come somewhere different.
It made me think a lot about the advertising campaign. I agree with it, but it should be ‘Malaysia truly the best of Asia’. For me this is the place where all the best things about Asia can be found without some of the unwanted aspects – I wonder what ‘Incredible India’ is going to be like.
But the main thing is the food, the food is unreal. I’m sure the Indian is better in India and the Chinese is better in Hong Kong, but they don’t live side by side on every street there along with Thai influences and the national Malay cuisine.
So I can’t wait to get something to eat. Only problem is none of our cards are working and we’ve no money.
