Malaysian Jaunt

miserable and bad tempered monkey at the Penang Botanic Gardens

I've only now uploaded my holiday pictures from camera number two and know the world is just desperate for me to share them. Malaysia was the venue, Melaka, Langkawi, Penang and KL the specifics. Food was the highlight but the rest of the experience was good too.

Bollywood beach at the Garden Beach resort Langkawi. They took over for a few days of filming madness.

Bollywood Mullet

possibly the world's biggest mullet on an actor filming outside the toilets

Firefly flight awaiting takeoff, Langkawi

Firefly, the world's most orange airlines offer short and cheap flights throughout Malaysia. This one was from Langkawi to Penang

Cheong Fatt Tze Mansion, Penang

Cheong Fatt Tze Mansion, Georgetown, Penang. It has interesting crockery cut and paste decoration and one of the most irritating, condescending and boring guides in the world. Nice building though.

Becak or trishaw on location in Georgetown, Penang

Continuing on the filming theme, a crew cling pecariously to a becak in Georgetown, Penang.

Sand cyclist, Langkawi, Malaysia

Cycling on sand, every bit as difficult as it looks

Monkey child nibbles stolen food

A more pleasant monkey but that's probably because it hasn't had time to learn how to be a curmudgeonly wee bugger yet.

As always there are more, many more on Flickr

Bloody hell, two Saigon bloggers in Langkawi at the same hotel at the same time! What're the chances of that happening?
