cuti-cuti (pronounced as chuti-chuti) is a malay word for vacation, leave or holiday.
after my week-long solo trip to malaysia, i am not sure now if i can call it a lone backpacking experience. one thing, i left my newly bought 35L knapsack at home and preferred carrying my laptop bag and an old duffel bag. i also did not stay in hostels but slept comfortably every night on budget to mid-range cost hotels and my means of transportation were mostly by cab, which cannot be considered as budget friendly.
a week is really not enough to experience most of malaysia but my itinerary of visiting kota kinabalu, penang and kuala lumpur was enough for me to appreciate a glimpse of the country. i realized that it can be fun travelling alone and i have never had a boring moment during my travel.
so keep posted for my next entries that will cover my one week travel to malaysia. i have to go back to work in the mideast by weekend and i will surely be busy but will still try to blog.. till then!
