Time for island hopping in Malaysia. After months of consideration between how to rank the only three islands I visited I have finally reached a verdict. People who dislike stunning beaches, crystal clear water, and other island stuff, should stay away from this post.
Yes! 6 months in Malaysia today. Was an insane increase in blog traffic from the last fitness post which made me think about what people really would be interested to read about. If I am not wrong the gym post from Japan was gladly enjoyed among my hardcore followers from Sweden (yes, back in the days I did not explore the English language). Well, after hard work (out) people deserve some rest and a proper holiday. Malaysia is a multiethnic country and that means plenty of extra holidays for everyone.
How is Kuala Lumpur? Well, so far not completely impressed. You actually find all your South East Asian needs here such as local food/street food, shopping, good weather, nightlife etc. The thing this city does not give me the right feeling,. I don’t feel the city pulse, the inner culture, or any vibrant center or connectivity that would make this city more lively and colorful.
I am trapped inside. It is not the toilet door this time but hazardous haze from Indonesia that already has plagued Singapore and south Malaysia for over a week. Yesterday the haze reached Kuala Lumpur, still I could breath pretty normally and see at least a couple of hundreds meter from my balcony. Today I woke up feeling if I had been intoxicating something really bad from last night, opened the curtains and could not see a single centimeter outside my window. I have closed all open windows, but still the heavy smoke is torturing my breathing system and it smells a bit of death in the air.
My never ending Asia blog will probably never ever end and is now re-bouncing with my Malaysian story. Two weeks of vacation in Sweden turned out to be almost 5 weeks of wait for a joining date that got delayed, otherwise I would have been here 3 weeks back. Better than 3 months at least. Now I have finally moved to Malaysia and Kuala Lumpur where I will work for an unforeseen future.
I am spitting out blog posts like Indian rickshaw drivers are spitting purple pan betel juice, almost. There have been a slightly sick increase in views over the past weeks and it does not seems the decrease (800-900 views a week, my ego gets so proud). I will keep on going for a while and see where it ends up. Don’t get confused about the title yet – the post will indeed guide through Malaysia later on.
