Recording in the streets of Kuala Lumpur

I decided to record this week’s Patch Monday podcast in the streets of Kuala Lumpur, so I chose Jalan Alor in Bukit Bintang, a street lined with hawker food stalls.

This is a frame grab from a Flip TV video camera, so it’s a bit rough. But I hope it conveys some of the flavour of the moment.

I’m speaking into my Zoom H4n recorder and its Rode Dead Kitten windscreen, reading the script from my battered old MacBook Pro. The nearby family seems bemused.

The finished podcast will be posted on Monday is Crims come to the net: expert and patient.

[Update 12 September 2011: And here’s a video.]

Metronidazole and Kuala Lumpur

OK, so I haven’t even posted a Weekly Wrap and it’s already Tuesday night. However the abscess on my left jaw flared up again on the weekend, and I’ve been put on more serious antibiotics, including the rather nasty metronidazole (pictured).

So, as I write this, I’m about to board Malaysia Airlines flight MH140 to Kuala Lumpur for a couple of days of Kaspersky Lab’s reportedly-generous hospitality — and I can’t have a single drop of alcohol lest I become immediately and seriously ill. Look it up. It’s true.

Bugger, eh?

More news once I touch down in KL…
