The Malaysian	Adventure
Malaysia - Start Over!

Cameron Highlands Together with Pulau Perhentian, the highlight of this trip. Four wonderfully serene days amidst tea plantations, a break from tropical heat and enjoying tea (and roti) to the fullest.

Pulau Perhentian The other highlight of this trip. I had intended to come here for 5 or 6 days, do some diving, relax, that kind of thing. I had my own little beach bungalow, and it was so good that I ended up staying 16 days, and even then it was hard to leave.

Pulau Perhentian

Semenggoh A visit to the Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre near Kuching and to the Orang-Utans. Their fight for survival is a story that's close to my heart and I encourage you to visit the WWF site and learn more about them - and donate, if you can.


Kuala Lumpur It was hot, loud and dirty, but I loved it.

Mulu Caves For the first time in a tropical monsoon rainforest. Whew. It was an experience and the caves were very good fun, but after that I felt I didn't need any more rainforests, thank you.


Mt Kinabalu A mountain to climb and a park to visit. At 4,100m height, Mt Kinabalu becomes a challenge due to the thin air. And indeed, unluckily, I had to abandon the climb at 3,500m with symptoms of altitude sickness. Next time, maybe. At least I could take the time to take a few night photos when I returned to the guest house.

Kota Kinabalu The starting point to the trip to Mt Kinabalu, a couple of sunset photos.

Kuching The city of cats, where I was staying with friends for about two weeks.


Melaka En route to KL, I took in this city that was once a famous port.


Labuan A kind of Florida for Malaysians, Labuan was such a disappointment when I was there. Yet in retrospect, the photos turned out nicely and there were indeed things to see, e.g. a Sikh temple.
