    It's very difficult to get a drink, since this is a Muslim area. You can get a glass of beer in the top hotels but it will be served in a glass covered by paper, so no-one else can see it is beer. That's islam for you.

    off peak hour

    From sunrise till late in the evening a stream of motorcyclists , cars , kijangs , busses...passes by. And the benzine they use is undoubtedly without an ecologic label.
    The smell is immensely...
    As for the motorcycles and so on...they appear to be going nowhere. It seems they have the greatest fun to drive arround..

    Also , their driving manners seems a bit different then the European. We do stop as the lights turn red , we do drive in our own section.....
