Georgetown, Penang (Malaysia)

We actually went there for the World Music festival, which was… interesting. The rest of the town was worth it though.

Langkawi, Malaysia

Never seen so many animals in my life.

Manila, Bohol and Cebu: Philippines

Che culo! as the italians say: I don’t know how we managed this, but we went to the Philippines and escaped all the catastrophes that happened there last week: the typhoon, the ferry sinking in Cebu and then the huge flood in Manila. We didn’t escape the usual 2 hours delays of every boat and ferry of the country though. My European self is starting to get used to it slowly, thank god I have a comics reader on my phone.

First night in Manila, on top of the Bayleaf hotel for the view (Intramuros):

and finally…the Petronas towers, my friends!

Well you can just make your own idea of it, but let’s say it is definitely not my favourite spot in KL. The thing I liked is that the bridge in the middle of the two towers is actually an emergency exit in case of fire, to get out from the other tower. That’s cool. Oh and the lift was super fast.
