Numa Numa

Welcome to Malaysia.

Welcome to first true former colony. Welcome to equatorial climate and a mix of people where the dominate ethnicity, Malay Muslims, constitute less than 60% of the population. A country with full infrastructure on the western coast, electricity, internet, gas and plumbing, and little development in other areas, Malaysia is only recently been able to lift itself far along the path of development. It might have one of the tallest structures in the world and a significant high tech sector, but the sewers are still open and chickens still roam free in some areas.

I've almost got acclimated to the heat, which is nice since it never, ever stops. Currently its 88 degrees, which isn't at all bad. Sometimes it gets to the mid nineties, which felt absolutely draining the first days here.
