Travel to Penang Malaysia

"Welcome to the amateur traveler. I'm your host Chris Christensen. Let's talk about paying. I'd like to welcome the show ruth from Vancouver and that's not the one in Canada but the one in Washington and that's the state of Washington. DC. WHO's come to talk to us about Penang? Malaysia Ruth Welcome to the show. Thank you. Glad to be here and some of you met ruth. If you traveled a with me to Morocco ruth was one of the people on that trip and we're friends from long before that and you have spent the last. Three years up until the coronavirus down in southeast. Asia's that have I got. The timing writer was longer than Well, we had three years in Singapore. And then we were into our just pass our first year in Penang when the covert virus and I actually was here in the states and got stranded here as the movement control order went into effect inning and I wasn't able to get back into the country. So we're now home back in the state of Washington and Yeah. But Penang was our home for about a year. Will, and when we get to the point where we can, why should someone go to Penang? Penang is just a very interesting piece of as. You have three distinct people ethnicities who make up panning opening is one of the thirteen states of Malaysia. It's the second smallest. It's the only one that has a island plus mainland components, and the island is the part that we are familiar with. That's where we lived. We lived in Penang Island Penang. Island. Has Like I say three different distinct groups. There's the Chinese, which are about fifty percent, which is more than the most of Malaysia, your Chinese percentage, and then you have forty percent Malay- and about nine percent of the Indians who are mostly Tamil speakers so there from southern. Yup and then we have the expert groups and in particular, there's one large group of experts that now reside in Penang as a result of Malaysia's M. M.. Two H. Program, which is Malaysia my second home. So quite a few people have actually retired they've made it their permanent home. So it's a very eclectic group of different ethnicities and different cultures and they do not intermixed very much. So you really do have these distinct. And distinct foods and distinct ways of living and languages, and you can do it all in a very small space and people have been to Singapore Penang. It's about the third of the size of Singapore. And only has about fifteen percent of the population of Singapore's on the island about seven hundred thousand people that makes it much more spread out. You're not just in these big crowds of people and yet you're experiencing the same kind of cultural mixing and interaction that you might get in Singapore. I like to think of Penang sort of like Singapore before Lee Kuan Yew came in and modernized and sanitized. Everything, so Penang gives you that old feel I think of what Singapore would have been like. Before everything was cleaned up and so and not to say that it's dangerous or unhealthy to be there but you just get that kind of older. Feel you have people cook it on the streets for food and things like that. So the I highly recommend going just because it's different than a lot of other places you might go in Asia will in terms of Malaysia we're on or just off of the mainland portion of Malaysia in the. West Coast in the north. So we on cow before we're south of that which is way up by the border with Thailand and then we`re Two thirds the distance from Kuala Lumpur up to the type border. Yes yes. Like you say we're to the west of the mainland and very close actually up. I think there's only one one state may be two that are above pinning on the mainland before you get to. Thailand. So it is still pretty close to time. There is some influence of Thai Culture Thai food. In. What is in Penang Yeah I? Think you're forty miles from Thailand. yes. Yeah and what's interesting about pinning to is, and we'll talk about this a little bit more but you came and visited us when we were in Singapore and we went to the parental museum to remember that in singer. So Penang is one of three places in that Malaysian Singaporean area that has Parana Akin Chinese or also called the Straits Chinese also called the bubble Nokia's so they are located in Penang Malacca and in. Singapore. So I've actually been to all three places. I've been to the museums in each of those places and it's a fascinating culture. People from that culture came from China from mainland. China many years ago. treaters remember correctly yet and they came in and adopted many of the Malay Practices and cultures, and some of the foods and sort of turn them into their own. They were usually very very wealthy and their homes were extravagant and their furniture was lavish and carved, and they also incorporated some of the colonialism of the British. So they had fancy dinner ware and fancy glasses and mirrors and their homes were just beautiful and in Penang you can go onto Church Street, which is down in Georgetown and there is a Paranthan Museum there for Twenty Ringgit. which is almost nothing that's four ringgit to a dollar. So it's five dollars you can go in and get a tour of the product museum there, and it's fascinating. It was owned actually by a gangster. A Chinese gangster and his family I and It's now part of the state I believe as a museum and they do try to preserve this product can culture because it is only really in these three distinct places.

Malaysia court sentences ex-Prime Minister Najib Razak to serve up to 12 years in jail for crimes linked to 1MDB scandal

"Court has found former Prime Minister Najib Razak guilty. He's been sentenced to 12 years in prison. This was in his first corruption trial connected To the plundering of the so called one Mdb State Investment fund. This is part of one of the largest most far reaching financial scandals in history involved at least 10 countries, including the United States, Michael Sullivan reports. Things could have gone a lot better for Najeeb today, the judge finding him guilty on all seven counts of abuse of power, criminal breach of trust and three counts of money laundering in a trial widely seen as a test of Malaysia's commitment to the rule of law. I think it's a good day for Malaysia. Bridget Welsh is a research associate with the University of Nottingham. And an expert on Malaysian politics. Speaking from the capital, Kuala Lumpur, This decision actually re affirms that the rule of law is working. The judge was very careful and laying out his decision, and I think that there was set the sense that the decision move forward in a very uncertain political environment and the judiciary. At least this has ruled the day and with that there has been a sense of justice. Now Jeeves Fall from Grace has been swift just two years ago. Then Prime Minister. Najib's party was dealt a shocking defeat in the general election, in part because of the public's discussed with one MDB scandal, which saw billions siphoned off from the government investment fund into individual bank accounts, including prosecutors say Najib's The Jeep has maintained his innocence and said on Facebook last night that he was misled by others and that the charges against him are political in nature. It's going to be a long process of appeals and their two more paces, and it may be a number of years, but you know he will basically not be allowed to contest the election. During this process, and that's important, Brigitte Wolf says, and helps Malaysia's current prime minister Modena seen who heads a shaky coalition that includes Najib's party. She says Mujahideen will gain the most from today's rulings because he will be seen as putting the country before politics malicious restoring its reputation internationally, and it used to be in the top 10 countries for corruption. Now this makes it stand tall, and I think that is that really serves Malaysia well for NPR

We sat down with the talker for Trey Ratcliff to talk about his new under the influence book about how he gamed the Instagram system by buying fake likes comments and followers in order to build a following and get brands to one at pay him to do stuff, which he didn't accept. He was expose airing the downfall of social media. He happens to be a big social media guy as well. With over five million followers. One of the most popular travel blogs called stuck in customs. I thought it'd be great just asked trae how he got started right now in forty seven. I get my first camera until I was thirty five prior to that. I was in IT, my Becca is computer science and math. I studied university with Andersen Consulting startups, and that was all right kind of eight out of ten and hate it. But there's always this little cropping in the back of my skull. Like you meant to do something else. Trae you're meant to do something else. But I never knew what it was then. So I got a camera when I was thirty five and I was in Kuala Lumpur Malaysia. There was beautiful sunset. Never forget it. And I took a photo with his good camera. I was like, oh, I'm so excited in the or the photo, totally sucks. And it made me angry. I was like how how can the sunset b so beautiful. My photo be so bad to that sent me on this. Lifelong quest to try to make the final photo feel like it does when you're really there. So I started dabbling with this style of toxic HDR catastrophe. And really violently post processing my photos, and it's doing all this stuff. They were supposed to do. And I would share my techniques with the world now is common by anything on YouTube out to do anything, but you know, ten or twelve years ago, especially photographers, it was very private that you are supposed to tell people. How you do that was very wrong, where's against trade? But I didn't know any of this. I went into it not knowing anything about copy not knowing anything about teaching and just kind of figured it out all along without any any fear. When you say, you're a travel photographer that means that people pay you to travel and take pictures, so who's paying you you talking about corporate clients. Are you talking about selling your work on line? But. Yeah. So this is we sell work to collectors around the world, you bake prince, very limited edition, maybe just three a particular print, for example, and that the bulk of it, and that's actually turned into a multi million dollar business. And we have a small company just about ten people. So that's the biggest part of our income is so many fine art collectors I mostly travel on my own.

Vietnamese Woman to Face Trial Alone in Killing of Kim Jong-nam

"Do start John with a story here being reported in the South China Morning post, but everywhere else, it is a well, it it seems redundant to call story attached to North Korea bizarre because they always. But this this one has been way up there. This is the saga of the two women charged with the murder of the half brother of Kim Jong Hoon in Kuala Lumpur airport. That's right one of whom was released on Monday released because the prosecutors simply drop the charges against her nurse nation that she simply walked free. She was intonation and the other woman Vietnamese hot reasonably thought that she too might be released shortly. But no it turns out that today. The the Malaysian prosecutors said that she must stand trial. They have posed the Trump. Seatings because she's upset understandably again, they'll review on the first of April where she will for the first time give testimony. I think the big difference though, between them is that the the initial woman who's released doesn't seem actually to apply the nerve agent to Kim Jong now if he wants to see TV what happened in that airport. Concourse is the Vietnamese woman who goes up and puts a cloth impregnated with with the X on his face, the nation, simply stuns aside. So they're trying to simplify this case. Then by the look of it. They're trying to simplify it all pops. They simply decided that didn't have enough evidence to convict Indonesian woolen courses. Two years. Just elapsed. Have they worked out that even if she with guilty association with the murder, we'll probably got a couple of years. So the might doesn't let to walk free

What part of the world are you in right now because I know you bounce all over the place. So I'm I'm in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, I am Malaysian by I'm about to fly to New York to film to film with eight different authors, including the guy who founded spot in racism so excited about Joe create. Yeah. Yeah, I'm doing I'm doing an episode with Joe mine Taya team right now. Well, not mind high team, but a good chunk of his training for the spot in race. So we spot in race obssessed company. Oh, I had no clue. I'd I literally was just with Joe over at Spartan world championships. Tahoe. He's nuts. What what he tried to do when I showed up. And I'm I first thing he did after I saw him was he wanted to stick me in container for twenty four hours and having run in a treadmill while eating bananas as part of a fundraiser campaign. I politely declined because I had worked to do while. I was there. And I was I was racing. But he convinced five other guys to do it. So we had these these these young men running on a treadmill and complete. Darkness and sensory deprivation with literally bananas and water for twenty four hours to see who could run the farthest, and the, of course, the complete mind f part of it was that none of the guys in the containers knew how far the other guys in the containers had run an Joe comes up with all these harebrained ideas. So that'll be interesting to hear hear your interview with them. You know, that that sounds like a FOX television reality TV show. Pay this except he probably does. Yeah. He probably does the television. Joe's can't do for reasons of Letitia, snus and liability. But ultimately, you know, what you mentioned your team doing the whole Spartan race together. That's what I really been impressed with online valley and a lot of people listening in may not even know what? Mine valley is and I certainly want to get into you and your life because you do a lot of biohacking and brain and body optimization. But before we delve into that and. I'll I just wanna finish that train of thought. So I'm going to New York to fill eight different author. So so what so so what we do is Michael develop the singular best program in every field in transformational fury. So for example, as you know, we're working with you Ben on the longevity program 'cause I love your work where working with Neil Donald Walsh on a program on awakening consciousness, Jim quake on meta learning and super brain. And so I'm obssessed with science and data and technology. A computer engineer by training when applied to transformation so mine valley, we around three hundred people globally a hit quote assigned quantum poll, we have an office in Thailand Estonia. And what we try to do is develop the singular best online learning experience for any type of -bility that people want to gain that is in the field of transformation. So I go to go to New York into these authors, and that tried to identify who is the next great author that we can bring on. To platform right now, we put about one hundred office on stages globally, and that twenty just twenty that on our quest platform in these authors. We we just we we create world class world class quality filming with their work, and we put them on a technology platform. That's crushing it in terms of student results..

We spoke to Mr. l. contour back in April when he had already been living in the airport for more than a month. Here's part of what he said at the time. It's not my Ford that I born with say that I am Syria. I can be an extra Ed value in any community. I am a very good worker, an expert, man. I keep trying to prove myself yet. I'm not able to find a place, safe place, a clean place where I can be read. I'm so sorry to hear this. It's just awful. Can I? Can I ask you what? If you have a Syrian passport, as you say, what would happen to you if you went back to Syria? I won't. There's thousand eleven because there's this military service. So I'm wanted to join the fight. I'm brave man, but it's not my fight. I cannot just bought a part of killing machine to destroy my on home since April. A group of Canadians has been trying to help Hassan.

What would happen to him if he was deported this area, it would. What does he believe would occur? Well, he would definitely be imprisoned because he is wanted because he did not complete his mandatory military service. He has very clearly stated his objections to the civil war that's happening in Syria, and he has been quite critical of the Assad regime, which means that he would definitely be imprisoned probable that he would be tortured, could be even worse. You and others have been trying to stop this deportation. And in fact try to bring him to Canada for all of these months that he has been in the airport. So what happened to your efforts?
