Continuing from Part 1, we were indeed getting closer to our homes but first, we had to go through the hurdles of COVID19 testing and the mandatory quarantine. It will take time indeed but at least we have set our legs in Malaysia.
The trip to Cambodia started off rather early in the morning with me waking up early and
double triple checking everything that I suppose bring along for the long work assignment overseas. The kids were deeply asleep but just before I left the house, they were awake to say goodbye.
(If you ask me, this is a better video to watch for the first time visitors to Malaysia and Asha Gill is lovely as usual)
I was flying in to Malaysia just the other day and yes, I was flying on MAS. It was kind of painful to see the good, hard-working people in MAS facing some uncertainty as MAS undergoes a major restructuring.
