    • BTW, JazliAziz, where in Malaysia are you? I've been to KL, Johor, Penang, Malacca, Langkawi, and Sarawak. It's been a number of years now since I have been to any of those places, but I really enjoyed all of them. Sarawak was probably my favorite, though. KL, Johor, and Penang were mostly on business.

      I'm in the Selangor/KL area. You seem to visit Malaysia quite often. What work brings you here?

    • That was years ago. I was in the Semiconductor Industry and specifically selling to the Automotive Industry for several years. I was based in Japan and responsible for the Asia-Pacific region and had some Japanese and European customers with operations in Penang and JB and I also visited Proton/Perdua in KL. But I also just loved the region and took advantage of being there, so on short vacations or weekend trips I visited Malacca, Penang, Langkawi, and Sarawak. Great memories. One fond memory was spending the night in a long-house of the Iban in Sarawak in the jungles of Borneo in Sarawak. That was back when they were still allowed to have their traditional tribal decorations (human skulls) hanging from the ceiling and drink their traditional home-made alcohol and do sing-alongs, dances, and such. I understand you can still visit the Iban, but they now live in concrete long-houses and all the skulls are gone (for those who aren't familiar, in the very olden times, the Iban were headhunters... a practice they gave up about 100 years ago). It was a fascinating contrast from being just a few hours boat ride from Kuching, which is a pretty bustling port town, which in turn is just a few hours flight from the amazing metropolis of Kuala Lumpur.
