Backpacking since Christmas Day, 1989. Hitchhiking since mid 2010.

For the first time I managed to save enough travel funds in less than six months in Australia.

I've been soaking up the atmosphere in Kuala Lumpur before setting off around Asia for the next nine or ten months.

Should we move this to expats, delete in completely, or just leave it lying about here forever?

comment UK visa decision advice?
Your second sentence makes no sense. "stayed 112 days significantly more than a month stated" vs "but returned back before my visa expired" vs "have not stated reasons why I overstayed" seem to contradict one another. Did you overstay or not or are you saying you are falsely accused of overstaying? It's also not clear whether you were denied entry upon arrival or denied a visa.

comment How predictable is the weather in Kuala Lumpur in the rainy season?
@JoshB: I'll be hitchhiking around Asia, but the first step is to get un-stuck from the city and actually start travelling (-:

Right then. Today I'm shopping for rainwear (any suggestions?) and tomorrow I'm heading off early for Malacca...

comment At what kind of eateries can you have a lamb roast in Australia?
What kind of clubs? Almost all pubs have pokies these days (horrible things). RSLs were pretty common but I don't recall one near where I lived in Blackburn South. At least nobody I knew in any age group ever went to one. We only went to them when visiting my grandparents on the Mornington Peninsula in the '70s and '80s. At that time it was mostly retirees who used them. It's possible times have changed since I left Victoria in '92 or '93 I suppose \-:

Alps, Edelweiss and... cat meat? What you apparently don't know about the Swiss: "Hundreds of thousands of Swiss eat cats and dogs, according to an animal rights group that has demanded the government make it illegal for man to bite dog."
