Hong Kong Revisited


This January, I’ll be making it back to Hong Kong for far too short a time. If you’ll cross paths with me, let me know: 4 Jan arrive HKG around 2 p.m. 6 Jan in Macau from early morning and then flying to Kuala Lumpur, overnighting there 7 Jan to Langkawi 8 Jan back to […]

Malaysiapore Pictures


Pictures from our January trip to Malaysiapore, available in part on Becky’s blog (linked on the sidebar), are being uploaded in full to my gallery as I type. Also, I’m uploading pictures from Becky’s whirlwind tour of Hong Kong. Interestingly, in Melaka we managed to completely avoid photographing the historic square (Christ Church and the […]

Made it back, again


Our room in KL (not a budget dive) was scary dark and quiet. I had no idea what the time was, with the lights off. Made it back without too much excitement, and I’m faced by the twin demons of piles of laundry and an Octopus gone negative. Ah, down and out in Hong Kong. […]

Kuala Lumpur


Remind me never to leave so early from Macau: a flight leaving at 10:45 had me leaving Lingnan at 5:30. That wasn’t strictly necessary, but it was close enough. We’d booked a Turbojet ferry online for 0700 and taking the first West Rail train at 0547 got us there in time to grab breakfast. After […]

January plans


It’s official: I booked a ticket (with Becky) from 4 to 15 January, Macau to Kuala Lumpur. Malaysia (and Singapore) here we come.
