made it into Malaysia

Been here 12hrs, did not know if plane was going to fly due to volcanic ash cloud from Chile.

Two riders from this forum (fastoman and myred)here met us at airport very late, after 11.30pm and fed us and drove us I think about 70km to hotel.

Someone turn on the heater here as it was 28 celcius when we got off plane at 11.30pm and when we left NZ it was about 1o celcius.

Fasto is letting me use his awsome blue versys on weekend of 25/26th of June as he borrows a ninja 500 and takes me for a weekend away riding through Malaysia, this will be highlight of my trip and really looking forward to it. I am sure there will be plenty of good pictures.

My wife and me are blown away by the kindest these guys have shown us and what they have done for us, just a few of the things they have done, got two loaded sim cards for our phones (before we arrived), run us around, paid for train tickets, lent us some local money to we get our cash changed over, Francis (myred) is taking us out for a meal tonight at 7pm, Karuna or fastoman is having us stay at his house for during our 2nd week and also taking both Keri/me and his family away for a few nights to show the sights and I think one night in Thailand.

Totally blown away and shows there are good things that happen in the world full of trouble.

Watch this space

Phil

Friends with all these guys for a reason. I'll win the lotto one day and we all will get to meet!

Met up with Phil, Keri and Francis at KL Tower (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kuala_Lumpur_Tower)
Later we went to Petaling street for a good chinese dinner. Everyone enjoyed the food and it was great. Last for the day was a night sight of KL twin towers.
