Today commenced the first day of the second week of my second trip to Kuala Lumpur. Originally scheduled for one week, it was extended (as these things sometimes are) and I am here for another week. Whenever I’m someplace that isn’t London, I feel that I ought to write about it in the blog — even when the trip consists mostly of hotel and office.
To the right, you can see what has become my standard travel picture — one from the hotel window, at night. These have been made much easier due to the presence of The Tripod, but this particular one is dampered by the fact that it’s the rainy season here in Malaysia and the hotel will not allow the windows to open all the way. The result? Rain-covered window. The photo still looks good in small, but not so much in big.
Below, credit must go to Mo, who noticed this food description at the buffet and mentioned that it needed to be photographed. I’m a little disappointed in myself that I did not try the food labelled “Mini Buddha Jump Over the Wall”, as I think it needs a review. If it is spotted again, there will be a follow-up and a food review.
Otherwise, as I seem to be spending over 20% of 2009 in Malaysia, I’ve given up on doing things that are tourist-like. For instance, Saturday was spent playing Guitar Hero at a friend’s house — hardly a typical tourist experience. At least I’m avoiding (reportedly) cold and windy weather in London, which is good. And avoiding the London cuisine, which is good.
My travel heavy year will continue in December, but with vacation travel rather than work travel. So I think this is a good thing. The volume of travel makes me feel that I should possibly make this blog a bit more travel-oriented at times. But what would be my perspective? What would I offer? I’m not sure that I want to write a standard travel blog.
Although, by the end of the year, I’ll have passed through at least seven different airports this year. Perhaps I should start doing airport reviews?
