Commonwealth War Graves Commission Cemeteries, Johor Bahru, Malaysia

By on June 27, 2015 in Malaysia with 0 Comments

I recently discovered (and I can’t remember which site I saw it on) a blog post saying there were two Commonwealth War Graves Commission (CWGC) Cemeteries in Johor Bahru, Malaysia. The presence of these war graves struck me as odd as I wasn’t aware of any such cemeteries, and I thought that the nearest CWGC […]

Changi Airport (SIN), Singapore – the secret food hall of Terminal 3

I’m not a fan of Changi Airport, Singapore as every time I go there I have a problem. Last time I nearly didn’t get my car out of the terminal car park as there was nowhere that would take cash so I could top up my Netts Card, which has to be used to pay for […]

When visiting a town I always like to try the local restaurants and in Miri I spotted Muara Restauran Malaysian Restaurant and Indonesian Restaurant on North Yu Seng Street, 98000 Miri, Sarawak, Malaysia, so I popped in for dinner. At the Muara I had the Lalapan chicken… The Sambal belacan midin…. And some deep fried […]

Speeding taxi from Kuala Lumpur International Airport 2 (KLIA2), 64000 Sepang, Selangor, Malaysia

Kuala Lumpur International Airport 2 (KLIA2) is a big airport. We spent 20 minutes taxiing to the stand, and it seemed to take forever to walk to baggage claim and then to the taxi rank. It’s been a couple of months since I’ve been here. I’d forgotten how far out of town the airport actually […]

The randomness of AirAsia checkin

By on June 19, 2015 in Malaysia with 0 Comments

Flying quite a bit on AirAsia at the moment and one thing that annoys me is the variation in checkin procedures. Some airports you have to prints out your own baggage labels at the airport, some not. Some you print out at the label at home and bring it to the airport. Is it too […]

Cats of Kuching, Sarawak, Malaysia – what is it with Kuching and cats?

Cats of Kuching, Sarawak, Malaysia – what is it with Kuching and cats?

I have been told that Kuching means cat, however, when I put Kuching in Google Translate, and select Malay to English, I get back Kuching. However, as the town seems so opposed with cats I am going to assume the Kuching does mean cat because if it doesn’t then all the cat sculptures, T-shirts and cat-related […]

India Street and surround area, Kuching, Sarawak, Malaysia – part 2 of 2

Just around the corner from India Street, Kuching, is a great series of little shops selling food and spices, and it is a great place to explore. The smells coming from the different spices were fantastic, and their colour was stunning. From across the road the shops don’t look like much… But once you get […]

India Street and surrounding area, Kuching, Sarawak, Malaysia – part 1 of 2

India Street is a great part of Kuching to visit and explore. On this visit, the middle of the road was closed for repairs, but all the shops were still open, and I had a great time looking around and taking some photographs. No space in the shops is wasted. Every shop is full to […]
