Railway Junket



















Going Places, March 2009

So so so ... did the highly anticipated jungle train ride live up to our sky-high expectations?

You bet!



















Don't underestimate this gingerly old girl, she goes so fast, it's like surfing on rails! Now if only all assignments were this fun :D




















There's a chicken in that basket, if you didn't know that already. The Gua Musang platform turns into a makeshift market when the passengers from up north disembark. Read the full story when you get your copy of GP on Malaysia Airlines lah :D

I actually had a ton of photos from my own collection - but ... I lost all my photos when my hard disk crashed recently ... *dabs eyes tearfully*

I know! I'll just have to go there again!

Train ride, anyone? :)

James: Hey you, who else would I bring??? :)

Ellen: To Kelantan! To be precise, the land of nasi kerabu and nasi dagang and wonderful bundle shops and quirky local characters... yum yum yum!

Hi, stumbled upon your blog! Love your column, Navel Gazer :)

Your mention of the Jungle Train piqued my interest, I got no idea we have such a gem here, right in our country! You bet I'll be planning a trip on our own Keretapi Hutan!

Would love to read your article, but I doubt I will be flying MAS anytime soon, Oh well, I'll just have to ask friends to snag me a copy of GP. Shhh! ;P

SF Rahiman: Thanks... leng chai (?) I'll post an update on my blog when I do ;)

Jaded: Tried to leave a comment on your blog but couldn't. I hope you will get to go on the trip - it was absolutely amazing! If you really can't get your hands on a copy of GP, just write to me and I'll be happy to email it to you :)
