I managed taking some time off my shoots and going for a short vacation. I went all alone and had an awesome time during those 10 days. I visited Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Langkawi and Genting and even went on a cruise.
There was this Dolphin show that I went for and really loved it. I have never seen something like that before. The dolphins were dancing and entertaining everyone. They were performing all kinds of stunts as well. The organizers offered us a chance to go into the water and get kissed by a dolphin but I did not. And today I'm really regretting it. I didn't do much of shopping there but yes I did walk around a lot. In the whole enthusiasm of discovering and seeing new places I ended up walking for hours without even realizing. And at the end of it I used to be so tired and exhausted that the moment I would spot a massage parlor I would walk in for a foot massage!
The people were very hospitable and spoke with a lot of respect. I remember when I had previously gone to Germany I had found the people very cold there. They don't even interact with you. But it was quite the opposite out here and I really appreciate the way I was welcomed by the people of this city.
Our guide was one of the best and gave us a lot of information on the places we visited. Everyone spoke good English so I didn't have to face any major communication problems. In fact I bumped into a whole lot of Indians there too.
