On another note, the other night Yury and I managed to somehow get up to the infinity pool on the roof of Marina Bay Sands?
(take that, exchange orientation leaders and native Singaporean naysayers - it IS, in fact, possible to sneak in)
Indonesia recap is gonna require a lot more time and a few more posts, so going to take care of some other things first. Will get to it sometime in the next week probably - I finally have the computer for it!
Long overdue: Kuala Lumpur photo highlights (click for captions)
Don’t have the time to write them out, but if you’re friends with me IRL, next time we see each other make sure to ask about the bus ride from Singapore to KL, the second morning we spent at our hostel, and the monkeys at Batu Caves!

lost my glasses somewhere in this hostel but at least still have my contacts on hand? hopefully will be feeling well enough for a cycling excursion my friends have been planning tomorrow afternoon, wish me luck
