Default Anyone in Malaysia june-july?

As i have seen a lot of threads about KL/Malaysia, I will be in malaysia through these months and wondered if anyone else would be out there. i can show you around KL and would be wicked to meet people travelling in this lovely country.

Too bad I won't be going home until...maybe Christmas. Enjoy (some laksa, cendol, satay, chao koay teow, ABC, rendang, nasi lemak, roti canai, etc etc etc for me), though. :D

Ahhh! I'm going to be so LOST when I'm there. I'll just eat whatever is handed to me because I won't be able to remember names.

Thank God I know what a roti is. (We date West Indians and live to tell the tale!!)

Eating random things is one of the best parts of traveling, IMO. I have fond memories of going around China/Taiwan and stabbing menus randomly and seeing what we got. :D

If you eat in slightly nicer places (i.e. not the roadside mamaks or the open-air Chinese coffeeshops/hawker centers), they mostly have English menus anyway.

ahh you won't have any problems. most people in KL have an understanding of basic english, and some of them speak better english than me weird.

if you have any specific eating habits, like you cant have meat/fish nuts or soemthing, just learn the word for that and hwo to say you dont want it. malay food is easy to understand once you know the basics - im sure youll have fun eating the lovely food

check out all the different food out there - the malay stuff, the chinese, the indian, its all lovely
