Notes: An excellent opportunity to experience Malaysia's cultural diversity - Malaysia is a tropical country, a bit hot and humid - many loved to go back with a nice tanned completion. Bring loose clothing - hat and suntan lotion - you get to like the cool ambient in the evening. Love Asian food ? you would have opportunity to savour what the common people have. Peace is more than absence of war - it is appreciating and enjoying what we have - what's presence.
