Leaving Cameron highlands heading towards KL I was greeted with brilliant windy roads and could have been transplanted back to some of our roads at home. Check out the photos below.
After about 100 odd km's of this I then rejoined the main north south motorway which is three lanes either side and has a speed "limit" of 110km's. Now to many drivers here this means 150km's an hour so you need to keep your eyes peeled, but is a bit of fun in itself for a while.
Amazingly I found my way back to Faizals office where I dropped the bike off, had a bite to eat with him and then was brought back to the hotel where I have booked in for two nights (the same one I stayed at before). Now, if you have been thinking about doing some riding in Malaysia, Faizal and Malaysian Motorcycle Getaways ( www.ridemalaysia.com.my ) are the people to see. Shoot me an email if you've got any specific questions.
Good bye mr blue burtie ... Thanks for the good times...
Now when I arrived back at the hotel, I don't know whether it was because I was served by the big chief of operations, or whether it is because I am a returning customer, or even if he took a bit of a fancy to me, but I am now ensconced on the sub penthouse level (32) in a one bedroom apartment with free wireless Internet and breakfast thrown in, and all for a very very reasonable rate. Yay!
The view from the room ....
The plan from here is - 1.go to laundry, 2. Catch up with Faizal for lunch tomorrow, 3. Book a ticket to fly to Phuket from here on Friday (tickets are very cheap), 4. book some accommodation for a few nights in phuket so I can acclimatize to Thailand, 5. sort out a motorbike for my travels and 6. hang ten in the touristy part of the country while the general election takes place.
I have to say that I have throughly enjoyed Malaysia, and yes, it's been damn hot, but the people have been great and I have had a real insight in to the lives of people right around the country.
Thanks for taking time out of your day to follow my blog. Cheers, Nick.
