We’re on Pulau Pangkor, a small relaxed island off the West coast. Ever since we arrived we have done nothing but cough, sleep, cough, cough, sleep, and cough again. So no pictures from Pangkor yet. I believe I have never coughed as much in my whole life. Hopefully things will be getting better in the next few days.
Ipoh is the third biggest town in Malaysia which hardly gets to see any tourists but is famous for its good coffee and food, especially “tauge ayam” – chicken with beansprouts. The Shanghai Hotel – though a bit run down – has a great location, a very friendly and helpful owner and some great architecture. But I still haven’t been able to make a really successful picture of the staircase.
