Ok, the last bird pic!

 

Well, in true malay style the last one wasn't shiny enough so this is the new one, though I thought the old one was much more fitting. Also they hold a Malaysian flag, not created until after the wars they fought in..

 

Tiger beer is actually from Singapore, but they seem proud of it anyhoo!

 

A cheap meal, I had the 'clay pot chicken' which sucked at this stall but is otherwise fantastic!

 

We found a pool hall that serves 24hrs, hence the tired looks! Can't remember all the names!

The stage, with the flag pole (the brits built) above!

 

These guys were made up to find out I was from the UK and was interested in Merderka so they covered me in their flag and we danced all night! Cool!

 

 

... just as the Prime Minister of Malaysia was arriving... you couldn't make it up!

 

The flag song is a rousing patriotic song that gets bludey played to death!

The tallest building in the world (only half the office space is rented...) Now this is one thing the Malaysians are defiantly proud of! Coach loads of them turn up every day to take this very photo!

 

This a walkway suspended 30 foot in the jungle, you get to see the upper canopy of the jungle and take the obligatory, I'm stood 30 ft up on some aluminum ladders and planks of wood, sweating photo.

 

This lovely message shows the quality of the establishment I was staying in. "Please be considerate of other guests. Flush [By scooping water from a bucket into the hole in the ground] when you are finished shitting....".
