Around Malaysia In 20 Days

Yep.

My plan is to travel to all the states in Peninsular Malaysia. On motorcycle.

Everyone has been telling me how dangerous it is. I know. Which is why I don't tell many people about this. Until now. My parents know I'm travelling all across Malaysia, by bus =P.

If my bike fails half-way, I'll trade it away for a bus ticket and return to KL. At least I've tried.

I departed from my new home in Mont Kiara yesterday and went to Seremban. I didn't stop for long in Seremban, so not much picture from there. I went to Malacca in the afternoon and reached Jonker Street at around 1pm.

While I was stopping for a rest at Pedas Linggi, this lil' creature crawled up my leg.

It's a cricket, a huge one. I was so excited but I tried my best not to scare it away as I slowly took out my camera phone to snap a picture.

And Jonker Street failed me once again. There's not much to see, and I spent the night googling about my next destination instead. Unfortunately the wifi service at the rest-house didn't allow me to open blogspot so I had to postpone my blogging activity.

I woke up at 6am this morning and rode to Muar. I took the smaller route, and rode along Malay villages, and felt lucky I took the path. The road was bad but the scenery could easily be the most beautiful I have ever seen. Panoramic, tranquil, peaceful. I'm loving it.




Upon reaching Muar, I called Chee Wee and we had Duck Noodle together.

It was then I saw this lil' creature by the roadside. An injured Swallow.



Speaking of creatures, I've seen quite a number of dead animals as I rode from Muar to Segamat; a barn owl, a civet, several cats..
Dead Civet
Barn Owl
Beautiful scenery from Muar to Jementah.
I had lunch at Jementah, and visited the beautifully adorned Buddhist temple. They've got deer and Arapaima Gigas and we were allowed to touch it~ only not to place your hand close to its mouth.





Look at the size of that shit
And I touched that shit

The hotel where I stayed in Segamat has this on its wall. Why would anyone need a room for a mere two hours? o.O

Up next: Pekan, Pahang.
