Left a cold day in London, at 9:15pm on Malaysian Airlines. The food was good, in fact it was the best airplane meal I have ever had. Malaysian Chicken Korma in fact. I met one girl from England who was going out to Sydney, and doing the opposite route to myself. She said that Bankok was great, even though everyone goes through the same attractions. I must climb Wat Arun to get a goodview of the city. She reckoned I should spend 3 days there. Stopped in Dubai forrefuelling, and a look at the duty free. It seemed rather good value. It was 30 degreesC at 9:30 in the morning, and was already very hot.
