Greetings From Kuala Lumpur

Yes, it’s true, I am half way around the world in Malaysia.  I have been here for a couple of days and just now got hooked up with some Internet access (I simply refused to pay the $20 a day that my hotel was charging for wi-fi access).  I’m actually staying just a little West of Kuala Lumpur in Petaling Jaya but I can see the Petronas Towers from my hotel window.  Yesterday I took a train ride and a bus out to the Batu Caves.  Batu Caves is part geologic wonder and part Hindu temple.  To enter the temple you have to climb the 272 steps up the staircase past the gilded statue of Murugan (it’s hard to miss at 142′ in height).  While I was there I had the pleasure of being blessed by a holy man and watching a monkey steal a baby bottle and drink it dry.  I did manage to take a couple of photos as well.

I am going to be here for a couple of weeks, which is why my blog posts will probably be a little sporadic but I will do the best I can. So to kick things off, here’s a few photos from my trip to the Batu Caves and a couple from China Town as well.

  1. I didn’t know you were going so soo. Love your pics…keep them coming. Have a good time and be safe.

  2. Excellent shots Jeff. Hope you have a great trip. ($20 bucks for internet, wow, I thought the $13 in Vegas was bad.)

  3. Hi Jeff!

    Welcome to Malaysia…. Wish you have a great time here….

  4. I started following you on Twitter (@hoorge) and was surprised to hear you were in Malaysia. I was born and raised there but now I live in Burlington, Vermont. I was recently in Malaysia to shoot a wedding (January 2009). By the way, don’t forget to visit Jalan Alor near Bukit Bintang for experience in street food outlets.

  5. hi..jeff…i’ll see you tommorow…
