Return to Batu Maung
This is a photo taken during my
first holiday in Malaysia in December in 1970. This was just after I had
completed my HSC Exams – the equivalent of today’s A-levels – and waiting to be
enlisted into the army for my full-time National Service. All these year...

Cantonese kungfu movies at the South Country (Lam Kok) Theatre in Kampong San

Wear something light and drink a lot of water. Have someone to accompany you, so that when you answer nature's call, your companion will hold the queue for you. You don't want someone to say you jump the queue.
