I’m heading off to Kuala Lumpur tomorrow evening.

Very excited!

My second time going there, and I was sad to leave the last time.

I’m going to be doing a session at the Comel -The Magic of Picture Books conference.

Malaysia is one of the most beautiful countries in the world!

And so friendly!

Last time I went just before attending the Asian Festival of Children’s Content in Singapore. From KL (Kuala Lumpur) you can take a bus down to Singapore, which I did.

On the bus ride I met an American who’d decided to retire in KL. Every few months though he had to make an immigration run, he had to leave Malaysia, and then re-enter, renewing his visa. The easiest way to do this was to run down to Singapore, and then come back on the same bus.

He told me how much he loved Malaysia and living in KL.

Very high praise indeed!

You don’t need a visa to enter Malaysia if you’re coming from a Western country.

But if you stay longer than five months I think (can’t remember what he said the limit was) you have to go out and come back and you’re good for another five months.

So excited to be going back!

Hope to have some nice pictures to post of the conference!

Last time I passed these amazing caves with these huge Buddha statues that people were climbing up to. Hope to see them this time around.

Peace out!
