Na ranajky pobrate smerom k stanici pasar seni (metro, mhd). Zapadam u inda v poulicnom stanku na parkovisku. To tu uz o mesiac asi nebude, bo tu rozmeravaju novu budovu. Davam roti placky a caj. Na ulici ako kazde rano porozkladany rozny predajci oblecenia. Vsetko poukladane na plachte na zemi. Vyzeralo to ako second hand. Podchodom okolo mesity, motylieho parku sa dostavam do oblubenej botanickej zahrady. Pri amfiku (free wifi) kontrola cs ziadosti na dnes stretko. Jedno mam dohodnute ale len na poobedie. 5 pozitivnych ohlasov avsak nie na dnes, tak teda po 30.septembri. Pri amfiku fajn umely vodopad. Po odpocinku prechadzka parkom. Nesmeli chybat fotiace sa nevesty, pospavajuci pracovnici parku po lavickach a jedna skupinka aj realne pracujucich spravcov parku. Ti tu kosili, ostrihavali stromky, cistili priestranstva. Napajam sa na dalsiu wifi (hodina fre... read more

Hajzel upchaty, tak hned potesenie z rana Prazdnou ulicou smer vlak na letisko. V 711 minam skoro vsetky prachy na jedlo. Korea je fajn, skoro vsade sa da platit kartou. Vchadzam do metra, nekonecny presun, pipam kartu, v pohode. Po par meteroch dalsi pipac, tu ma to nechcelo pustit. Tak skusam vychod pre invalidou, tam ma to pusta. Prichadza uz dost plny vlak. Miesta na sedenie nikde, tak na stojaka. Vyskakujem na prvom letisku, reku dalsi vlak bude prazdny, no hovno, este plnsi Prichadzame na terminal 1, s davom ludi sa dostavam do odletovej haly. Smer prepazka airasia. Tu zadna sranda s personalom ako v japonsku. Korejky su ozaj dake divne. Na prepazke air asia baba zistuje cez mobil ci potrebujem viza do malajzie, pyta si vystupnu letenku. Tak jej ju ukazujem v appke air asia. ... read more

I always love catching up with my friend Steve, that's 8 years now we've been meeting in random places and this time it's at the airport in Kuala Lumpur. He's just arrived from the US and I'm just down from Langkawi on route to Scotland. So we catch transport into Chinatown and have a bit of an explore round. I booked us into the Traveler's rest guest house for the night and we went out for dinner which was fabulous fish at the local Chinese hawkers which was delicious followed by a wander round the markets and a beer or two at the Reggae Bar . We didn't get out of Chinatown but I enjoyed the night anyway. Next day we left for the airport again with Steve heading off to Cambodia and me heading to ... read more

A super-hot national park, a super-tall skyscraper, a super-big cave and some more things which really aren't super-anything We didn’t spend more than a few days in Malaysia and we only went to two places, Penang Island and Kuala Lumpur. When we planned this trip we never included Malaysia in our plans at all. Laos, Vietnam and Thailand were the three main destinations. We wanted to visit Cambodia as well but we knew all along that we wouldn’t have the time. The idea of going to George Town in Malaysia came up while we were on the road. It seemed like an interesting place to visit so we went there. Since we then were in Malaysia we threw in Kuala Lumpur as well. Ake has been to Malaysia before. That was a long time ago, back ... read more

Not having a window, as is the case where I’m staying, is a bit disorienting for waking up. I’m going to avoid rooms without a window in future. I had a bit of a lie in and got up at a leisurely pace. I asked about a taxi direct to Zoo Negara and was told that it would be about RM35 which is too much, so following the advice of the zoo website I got an LRT train to Wangsa Maju station (two trains actually, with one change) which was easy enough and cost RM5.3 and from Wangsa Maju station I got a taxi to the zoo for just under RM7. There is a bus stop just outside the zoo so there is probably a way to get to the zoo by bus with some changes, ... read more

I popped over to the national park very briefly in the morning just to walk around the Swamp Loop a bit, although I couldn't spend very long. I didn't see anything particularly interesting but you never know. The only fairly common target species that I missed was hanging parrot. I missed pittas too but needed to go further to have a decent chance. The bus left from just down the road that turns off at school, by the row of shops. Kuala Tahan has a disproportionately large school because it provides basic education for the Orang Asli children in all the nearby villages. It's about 70km to Jerantut which is about an hour and a half on the bus and and easy direct bus, though only twice a day at 10 and 5 and 8 and ... read more

2:30 AM was quite an early start, but at least it meant that the Bangkok traffic wasn’t too bad. I got to the airport in good time and got through with plenty of time to spare. I had some breakfast at the airport and also got a tea. Unfortunately, this was from a coffee shop where they think it’s appropriate to charge a comparable price for a tea bag in some almost-boiling water as for a fancy coffee from one of their machines. The flight was good, I got an emergency exit row (extra leg room, yay) which again turned out to be completely empty so no one else in the group of three. The plane wasn’t overall super-empty though and there were many other rows with people sitting in the middle seats. Anyway, we landed ... read more

Dnes som chcel vyliezt na bukit tabur lenze to by som nesmel vstat o 10.00. Nastasti nahradny program mi zabezpecil portal couchsurfing. Rozposlal som ponuky na stretko babam co su prave teraz v kl. Ozvala sa mi indonezka s jogjy. Stretavame sa na pasar seni. Navigujem ju na postu, posiela daku zasielku. Ja zatial vonku ranajkujem roti placky, ktore mi predavac zabalil do novin. Nasadame do free busu GOKL a zacina okruzna jazda po kl. Postupne testujeme vsetky linky, fialovu, modru, zelenu, cervenu. Tour z busu ok ale predsa len pesi je pesi. No to by sa dnes absolvovat nedalo, vkuse prsi. Na niektorych miestach nestaci voda odtekat do kanalu a tvoria sa male jazierka. Cs je zabavna, tak clovek ani nesleduje moc okolie. Na 1.5mesiaca ide pracovat na lombok. Indonezia je pre nu top krajina ... read more

Po fajn spanku smer obrovska perdana botanicka zahrada kde sa nachadza trebars bird park, motyli park, policajne muzeum atd. Pranie nakoniec riesim o poschodie nizsie. Tetula vravi, ze sa plati pausalne za pranie 15rm, tak prihadzujem este nepremokave nohavice. Povodne som ich nechcel dat prat (stratia nieco z ucinnosti proti vode) ale fakt smrdia. Na ranajky sa zastavujem na parkovisku pri pasar seni. Konecne indicke roti so super omackou a cajom s mliekom. Caj sa po indicky povie rovnako ako u nas caj. Stanica pasar seni je pekne vynovena, i ked upravy este stale pokracuju. V okoli tu polihuje aj dost zebrakov. Skoro vsetci indovia. Pri hlavnej ceste som svedkom mini nahanacky. Chlapik uteka, za nim prenasledovatel. Dobieha ho, bumbum a uz je na zemi. Pribiehaju ludia, security, vsetci to len pozoruju. Neskor to sledujem z ... read more

Na terase pokec so svedom, ktory je na 8mesacnom studijnom pobyte v singapure. Ostava mu posledny tyzden tak sa rozhodol trochu cestovat. Ako fakt nechapem preco vystrcil paty z toho statu az na konci pobytu. Je tu s jednu sikmacku ale vypada to, ze len kamosi. Neskor prichadzaju dalsi dvaja obyvatelia. Jedna baba, co zrejme dost cestuje, rozpravala zazitky z probolinga aka je tam taxi mafia, ktora proste zakazala poziciavat motorky. Jej sa to i tak podarilo (mala tam znameho) a spravila si vylet na bromo. To sa jej dost lubilo. Sved len nechapal ake zazitky sme si vymienali. Do odchodu neexistujuceho busu podla cestovky han travel ostavala hodinka. Tak som si zasiel za dedinu a skusal stopa. Za hodinu sa premlelo dost aut ale nikto nezastavil, len par ludi zakyvalo. Tak sklamnie z malajzie. Bus ... read more
