Gong Xi Fai Chai!

Happy Lunar New Year from me to you!

So things in Asia are a bit crazy due to the New year Celebrations. But the decorations are soooo beautiful. And everyone is super excited about the celebrations. It's busy busy busy though.

My trip in Singapore didn't start off well, as the airline lost my luggage. Luckily it was just delayed in Sydney and i'd suspected that it would happen, so i had packed a spare set of clothes in my carry on. And i got some compensation for it, which i used to buy myself a ticket to see The Police in concert. Which i think was rather jammy of me. Sometimes during concerts there will be a moment when there is such an atmosphere that i get goosebumps, and this is what happened when they played 'Every Breath You Take' and it was worth going to the gig just for that.

Singapore is small and i found it really easy to use the MRT system to get myself around and saw most of the sights including the Zoo, which is the best i've ever seen, and had lots of animals i've never even heard of and the night safari. Lots of cool architecture, especially the shophouses in Chinatown. Good shopping and good food. i also loved that there was such a mix of cultures, most signs were in 3 or 4 different languages.

Kuala Lumpur is another story altogether, it's dirty and smelly and vile and i can't wait to get the heck out of here, and i've only been here half a day! Unfortunately i can't get a bus for a few days due to the celebrations. Hopefully tomorrow will be a better day. And in the meantime i have plenty to think on, like what i'm going to do when i get home!
