Adventure in Malaysia!
We’re in Malaysia for a while! This is to keep friends and family up to date with pictures of the cool things we find and experience (and eat).
Note that if you go to other/archive pages beyond the main one, you have to click on individual post headings to see the pictures.
More pictures taken from the car.
More Food Pictures!
It was on our to-do list, but then they put in a Star Wars display, so we had to go right away! We liked it even more than expected, so we took a bunch of pictures.
There’s a whole country to explore! And we like road trips anyway.
We got our new house on a Wednesday. On Thursday, our air shipment AND our dogs were delivered. Oh, and it RAINED that day. Fortunately our stuff was all extremely well-packed, and though some of the packing was wet, all the stuff was dry and safe! Oh, and the dogs came in a van, so they were dry too.
We took a number of drives to get familiar with the area. There are palm plantations all over. Palm oil is a commercial crop here, so instead of the flat farmland you’d see in the USA, it’s forests of palmtrees.
There’s all kinds of cool new foods here!
When we got to Malaysia, we stayed in a hotel until our house was ready.
A driver came to Singapore to pick us up and take us to Malaysia. Since it was a holiday, they left the keys to the rental car for Josh with the company gate guard. Neither of us has driven a right-hand drive car OR on the left side of the road before (left turn on red!). It was shortly after Josh turned the wipers on instead of the turn signal that he said “Oh my God, we’re gonna die!”
Fortunately, because it was a holiday, there was almost no traffic at all. We drove around for quite a while after checking into the hotel just to get the hang of things.
