well, there is a piece of advice to be given if you come over Malaysia, the taxi drivers are the same as everywhere in the world i have seen so far, a bunch of thieves! If you jump on one make sure you ask him to switch the meter on, they wonīt do it by themselves, otherwise you will pay twice as the fear price!

this is a Muslim country so there will be some things you may need to know, during Ramadan some of the basic services will be interrupted! currently there is breakdown on public transportation, I had to take the shuttle bus some other bust station in order to get to malacca as well as you must make sure that if you go to a Muslim market to buy food donīt even think about eating your meal in there, they will keep on staring at you as if you were a psycho killer!

BE READY TO PAY A FORTUNE FOR ANY KIND OF ALCOHOL! a beer in a bar can cost you as much as a meal for four people! not good for alcoholics like me!

ok then, I have just traveled all the way down to Malacca and It happened to be a pretty hippie place to be honest, it is suppose to be a fairly big city of 700000 people but It seems much smaller to me, probably because I stay in the Chinese district, that means small houses full of details and colors, so far I havenīt been able to wake up early in the morning so no much of photography done yet :( anyway, the hostel and its inhabitants are cool, the owner is the nicest guy ever! he even try to fix my computer to get online, with poor results I have to say..... ok, there is this guy here, Lee, from Korea! a dive instructor whoīs been traveling for THE PAST 5 YEARS! Yeah man! He is such a nice guy, full of good advices and fresh ideas however I guess he is too hippie for me, he told me stories from the Filipin islands that I would rather not write down as It would take the hole day, like that man whoīs been sailing around for 16 years, jajaja, thatīs what I call a life style!

well, I gotta go to do nothing for a while, Itīs too hot to go out and I fancy some conversation with the bunch, a German guy, the Korean one, a Danish lady, a Manchester nice girl and this pretty cool couple from Canada! Canadian always cool as hell!

talk  to you soon!
