Watch out, Malaysian roads...

...here we come! That's right, someone actually gave us the legal right to drive in Malaysia.

Right now, neither Matt nor I drive in Malaysia. The fact that we live in a VERY high traffic area and are already close to work, we figured it was a bit pointless. Plus, we thought it would be a good idea to learn how to get along with the traffic and the whole left-hand side driving thing as a pedestrian before putting ourselves behind the wheel of a vehicle. Call us crazy.

But several weeks ago, we started to feel like we could tackle the Malaysian roadways. Maybe not KL during a Friday afternoon rush hour just yet, but we figured a weekend road trip was doable. So Matt applied for, and about six weeks later, got his license. Well, actually, his work did it so that made it very convenient for us.

So we are ready to hit the road! This weekend we are going to drive to the Cameron Highlands to get out of this heat and humidity. Now we just need to buy a good road map and a handy reference guide for the road signs, which happen to be mostly in Bahasa Melayu once you get outside of KL.

Woo hoo, our first Malaysian road trip!

OMG - that place looks bee-u-ti-ful! Really gorgeous. I hope you guys will go to the strawberry farm and the veg farm and get you some good yummy things. There is a restaurant called T-Cafe that I saw on their wbsite that serves all manner of Western food - chocolate cake (CAKE), apple pie (tell Matt to be sure and get it with cheese on top - ICK) - you guys should go. Have fun and tell us about it when you get back!
