Bike-Ride to Australia Wednesday 15th-February-2012. Kuala Lumpur to Gemas. 106 miles. Despite it being Valentine’s day yesterday and loads of loved up couples, I had quite a good evening in China Town. I ended up talking to a couple from Manchester. They were there on holiday and had just travelled up from Singapore. They were saying how expensive Singapore was, which I’d already thought. A good evening with a lot of beer drunk!
There’s not much to say about today. Nothing has happened or nothing that I can remember! It was, however, nice to ride along without having that annoying clicking peddle. I saw loads of monkeys, but they soon scurried away when they heard me coming.
I had Chinese for dinner again tonight. It’s the only place I can get a beer with my dinner. I tried to order the “special frog delight.” But they didn’t have any. They must have all hoped off! Sitting in the restaurant, they had a television on in the corner. And on it was a programme, which I remember from my childhood in the 70s. Monkey, a Japanese series they’d dubbed into English, very badly, I hastened to add! But that’s what made the series so funny. I think it was on BBC2, after 9 pm.
Don’t forget the main reason behind my ride, which is to raise as much money for cancer research charities as possible. Even the smallest donation helps. You can donate to Cancer Research or the Australian National Breast Cancer Foundation. Click on either one to donate.
