Sometimes it’s fun to be impractical

Isn’t it? Of course it is… I’m really not too much of a materialistic guy. I think my three biggest expenses are travel, good food, and camera equipment.

Speaking of that last one there, the Nikon D3x was finally made official, and I’m gonna be the first (or so they tell me) person to get one in Austin! Sadly, I think I will have more fun with that camera than with this car.

The Top Floor in Kuala Lumpur

It’s a great city! I always have a good time there… I wish I could get back more often, and I’ve been about 7 times! I’m always surprised how I much I enjoy the times over there even though I should be getting tired of it by now.

The Electric Red High-Backed Chairs where I Eat Breakfast in Kuala Lumpur

This is the top floor of the Hilton in Kuala Lumpur.

The club floor lounge area has all this really cool furniture and decor. They serve breakfast in the morning and drinks in the evening. The view is amazing too (as you can tell)!

Hiltons in Asia are typically 100x nicer than most others for some reason. Why this is, I have no idea.

The Burial

This was one of the most intricate burial sites on a remote hill outside of Kuala Lumpur. Janus and I stopped there on the taxi ride down to Malacca for some exploration and photography. You can look at the large version of this to see all the details of this single family’s grave.

Entering the Kuala Lumpur International Airport

Here is what greets me and several close friends many times a year upon entry into Malaysia.

Spider Monkey in your Face

I hiked through the Batu Caves just outside of Kuala Lumpur and afterwards, I found myself surrounded by monkeys. They were a little more than “friendly”, and ventured into a word that is better described as “vicious”.

They were all over the place, at my feet, above me, jousting through nearby bars. All of these monkeys were utterly wild and in your face.

The open-air Sky Bar in Kuala Lumpur with a view of Petronas

We had a company lunch today here at the studio in Kuala Lumpur so it was a fun day of eating massive amounts of Chinese food and running around, talking with the team. Afterwards, I went out with Janus and Will to the top of the Trader’s Hotel to visit the Sky Bar for some drinks and snacks.

This bar is up on top of the roof and it is all open air. There is a pool down there that is always available for use, and it is surrounded by a ultra-chic bar. It was raining when I took this… I am up on the 2nd level of the bar, where there is a spa… you can see the little massage rooms down the lefthand side there.

The Petronas Towers and the Lake Garden

I am here in Kuala Lumpur for another two week stint.  These are the famous Petronas towers that I see every time from almost everywhere in the city.

On Saturday I am taking a side trip down to Java to visit the Buddhist temple of Borobudur, so I am really looking forward to that!
