Flew with AirAsia to KL from Taipei then to Colombo, 12 hours in total, what a trip

Met a Taiwanese girl who sat next to me from KL to Colombo, we chatted all the way to Sri Lanka and apparently everyone heard us…

So Taiwanese need to fill up a file for customs which I didn’t bring a photo but I they still let me went throw coz I smile and chat to them lol

Waiting for Elliot, and yes he didn’t bring me Hainan chicken from Singapore…

Took taxi right to train station, felt like in India

Felt like in war 2, train doesn’t have door and not enough seats so basically people just hanging around the train even too packed to move, but cost about 1,20 dollar for 6 hours ride

Was a 6 hours long ride without seats, we met a local guy who was young but travel often

From hostel roof top(I have to say I am just not a hostel type, and to be fair hostel is not much cheaper than guest house here but was fun to met new friends)
