Kuala Lumpur rolling

Designer on the road was in Kuala Lumpur and Malacca to work, present, talk, live, survive, travel and make hundreds of new friends. See how he rolled here just before to jump Sri Lanka.

Some more packages from Malacca.

Malacca’dan biraz daha ambalaj 繹rnei.

A day in Malacca

Samsung, Edmond, Yumiko and me met in weekend to have a trip to Malacca. Malacca is a small city very close to KL. 2 hours of driving by car. The thing you see on right picture is the most complex parking ticket I have ever seen in my life. Too complicated.

Samsung, Edmond, Yumiko ve ben haftasonu buluup Malakka’ya bir gezi d羹zenledik. Buras覺 Kuala Lumpur’a 2 saat uzakl覺kta irin bir ehir. Sadaki ey bir park bileti. D羹nyan覺n en sa癟ma park bileti olsa gerek.

This is just a red street not a redlightdistrict. :)

Buras覺 sadece k覺rm覺z覺 bir sokak. O bilindik redlight districtlerden deil.

Lots ofthree wheelersaround.

3 tekerlekli bu bisikletler her taraftan f覺rl覺yor.

Entrance to the night market. This street is full of shops and cafes. At night it becomes a bazaar.

Asya’da al覺覺k olduumuz gece pazarlar覺ndan burada da var. G羹nd羹z kafeler ve d羹kkanlarla dolu olan bu sokak geceleri bir pazar alan覺na d繹n羹羹yor.

City centre. Malacca Christ Churchis the oldest functioning Protestant church in Malaysia.

Malacca merkezinde bulunan bu kilise Malezya’n覺n en eski protestan kilisesi.

This is the team. They are about to launch me as a rocket to Sri Lanka :)

Ekip beni Sri Lanka’ya postalamak 羹zere.

Rice balls and chicken. Drinking coconut juice. This is my lunch in Malakka. Rice balls are famous here.

Pilav toplar覺 burada pek mehurmu biz de yiyelim dedik, yan覺nda da tavuk ve coconut suyu. Mis

This is a nice idea. You can use your bathtub to create a nice atmosphere in your house or garden. Fishes swimming inside. Lots of greens growing. Like a giant aquarium.

B繹yle k羹vetten s羹per mekan yapm覺lar 癟ok sevdim. 襤癟inde bal覺klar y羹z羹yor.

Nice place to chill in Malacca. It’s actually much more interesting place than KL. Kuala Lumpur is a big city with big buildings and tons of shopping malls. There is not much activity to do. People usually spend their time in shopping malls. So it’s a bit boring. But people here are amazing. They are so kind and nice, always smiling. Hospitality is awesome. My experience here is the opposite of Bali. In Bali I had lots of activity to do but not much money to do them. Here I have nice money and kind people but nothing to do much. I mean it’s been 3 weeks here and I only paid twice orsomethinglike that. People never let me pay here. However I can’t find anything interesting to do as well.

Malacca g羹zel yer. Asl覺nda Kuala Lumpur’dan 癟ok daha karakter sahibi. KL sadece al覺veri merkezleriyle dolu b羹y羹k bir ehir. Yap覺lacak pek bir aktivite de yok. Bu y羹zden biraz s覺k覺c覺. Buradaki tecr羹belerim Bali’de yaad覺klar覺mla tamamen z覺t. Bali’de yapabileceim y羹zlerce ey vard覺 ama param yoktu. Burada ise paray覺 hi癟 sorun etmeyen bana hesap bile 繹detmeyen insanlarla 癟evriliyim ama yapacak pek bir ey yok. Geldiimden beri en fazla 2 kez hesap 繹demiimdir. Burada kimse bana bir ey 繹detmiyor.

You can rent these things and have a ride.

Bu aletler kiralanabiliyor.

Mr. Malaysia. Greatest bodybuilder of all times in Malaysia. A kind of living Hulk. :)

Mr Malaysia diye bir abi var. Bilindik Malezyal覺lardan baya farkl覺 g繹r羹n羹yor. Bir 癟eit Hulk.

Old trains of Malaysia. Did you know that some trains has seperate wagons for women and men in Malaysia?

Malezya’da baz覺 trenlerde kad覺nlar ve erkekler ayr覺 vagonlarda seyahat ediyorlar.

You can buy a Hattori Hanzo sword from bazaar and cut some heads off.

Pazardan Hattori Hanzo k覺l覺c覺 al覺p milleti doramak m羹mk羹n.

A big break. This place isextremelyhot. We need that long break until the sun goes down. We have beers and fans to keep us chill.

Yand覺k resmen, buras覺 inan覺lmaz s覺cak. Terden s覺r覺ls覺klam hale gelince yok olmayacak deyip serin g繹lge bir yere konuland覺k. G羹ne batana kadar buraday覺z, Biram覺z ve vantilat繹r羹m羹z de var.

Chinese stylebarbecue. Our dinner in Malakka. We wait 1 hour to enter this place. These people are all hungry :)

Akam yemeimiz in usulu barbek羹. Buraya girmek i癟in belki 1 saat s覺ra beklemiizdir.

After the Portuguese captured Malacca, they built a fortress to defend themselves. The fortress, called A’Famosa suffered severe destruction during the Dutch invasion. What’s left today is just the entrance walls, still well preserved till today.

Portekizlilerden kalma bu tarihi yer 癟ok 繹nemli diye beni getirdiler. Ne gezilecek bir yeri var ne de ahane bir g繹r羹nt羹s羹. Bizim tarihi yerlerimizden sonra pek tat vermiyor. Hele in’den sonra v覺yy deyip ge癟iyorsun.

Three wheelers becomes like portable discos at night. They also have music. Very loud music. All of them covered with big speakers.

Bu 3 tekerlekli bisikletler geceleri ayakl覺 diskoya d繹n羹羹yor. Son ses m羹zik de a癟覺yorlar. aka deil. Hepsinde kocaman hoparl繹rler var.
