Default Random Pics: '09 Singapore, KL and Genting *UPDATE* '10 Langkawi added Pg.2 onwards

Here are some random pics i took on last week's Singapore and malaysia trip.The quality of pics is not that good as i clicked them using a basic point and shoot camera.

Had to keep masks on at crowded places due to the H1N1 scare

Nice Pics Anshuman.

I have always travelled the other way round by this coach that is from KL to Singapore since its not worth taking a flight from KL-Singapore as flying time is so short plus the hour you need to reach KLIA.

Look forward to more pictures

Really nice pics. Reminds me of my visit to Malaysia/Singapore in March '08. Genting is a real beauty at night. Did you visit Lankavi? I couldn't coz of the time crunch.

Will visit next time. Have a 2year visa stamp on my passport for Malaysia and Singapore.
