13 Nov A Boat at the Perhentian Islands
I spent a few days in the Perhentian Islands, on the northeastern coast of continental Malaysia, on my way back from my trip to Burma. As I wrote at that time, I was overall tired of Southeast Asia where I felt uncomfortable, thus I was just looking for a nice place where I could chill out a little and, most of all, with some decent (or something close) internet connection so that I could at least work.
As I was flying from Yangon to Kuala Lumpur, where I stayed for a few days before heading to Burma, stopping somewhere in Malaysia was almost logical and so I did. I had heard big things on the Perhentian Islands from friends, thus I decided to head over there.
I was probably not in the right mood to fully appreciate the island. Still, there were a few moments that really caught my interest, like when I saw this boat of local people. I had no idea of what they were doing and where they were heading, but I liked these little scene of ordinary life, the colors of the boat, and for a while I fully enjoyed the Perhentian Islands. It was authentic and simple, and I wished to capture what seemed to me like a perfect moment.
