The hashtag for thus event should be for Kaspersky Lab Kuala Lumpur. Since no-one else has said…

Right. I am now going downstairs to mingle with the Kaspersky folk. Random tweets may or may not follow.

@nehadk @sophblack It’s a shame when these “fact” things get in the way, eh?

via TweetDeck

@jasonlangenauer Sadly, the Shirley Temple is all I can drink tonight. arseh.at/kvq And for the next two weeks.

via TweetDeck

Oh dear. I just noticed tomorrow’s Kasperskyhospitality includes “sightseeing” that STARTS at 2030. This is bound to end well.

via TweetDeck

Plus, @sophblack, that really is the very best TV production evah! youtu.be/8Rp-CaIKvQs

RT @sophblack: Today I discovered the Japanese transforming owl. It is now my most favorite of all the animals: ow.ly/1wLYwB

RT @sophiektarr: True true. Nothing says democratic progress like a revolving restaurant. [I think I shall use that line…]

via TweetDeck

RT @Davidramli: So I take it you’re not staying in the Trotsky Bukit? [If there was a Trotsky Bukit in KL, I’d have booked, trust me!]

via TweetDeck

RT @johnthelutheran: Did colonial Malaya have a lot of revolving restaurants, then? [This is one of the great mysteries of modern history.]

via TweetDeck

“It hosts post-independence Malaya’s first revolving restaurant.” I mean, how could you resist that?

via TweetDeck

I choose the Federal KL because it has its own Wikipedia page, and History. arseh.at/kvo

via TweetDeck

Tossing up between the Royale Bintang and the Federal KL hotels, both in Bukit Bintang. Is this a political choice?

via TweetDeck

I suppose I should book some accommodation for the weekend. Amused that it’s cheaper for me to stay longer overseas than return to Sydney.

via TweetDeck

That was probably too much walking in too much humidity with not enough beer. Time for a 2-hour break before Kasperskyhospitality.

Honda TVC being shot on Jalan Stesen Sentral. Crew t- shirts: “It’s film making lah, not rocket science.”

via Cloudhopper

Ok, so like in Bangkok, in Kuala Lumpur the concept of “pedestrian crossing” is an advisory only.

@edhusicMP Minor point. How can these homes be “first” to connect to NBN when homes are already connected? First in Sydney? Parochialism?

Random Kuala Lumpur view, with transport post.ly/37E0N

via Posterous

Plenty of free Wi-Fi to choose from. I wonder how much I’ve just been pwned.

via TweetDeck

@neerav I use Twitter’s UK SMS gateway +447624800379 but there are shortcodes for some countries e.g. US. On their website, surely?

via TweetDeck in reply to neerav

The entirety of KL Sentral seems to be one giant construction zone.

via Cloudhopper

Mobile: Out into the Kuala Lumpur humidity with no clear plan in mind, tweeting by SMS and, with luck, finding my way back before 1930.

via TweetDeck

Trying to reconcile what I see out of the hotel window with Google Maps. Not helped by a significant error in the hotel’s location marker.

via TweetDeck

Gosh. A chap just delivered a copy of “Fortune” magazine to my hotel room. On paper.

via TweetDeck

Oh hang on, that IS a tantrum, @jonoabroad. Oh look, I don’t know any more, just stop asking me all these questions, OK?

via TweetDeck

RT @R_Chirgwin: So what would a competitive sulk look like? @purserj [Three 6-year-olds in a screaming match?]

via TweetDeck

RT @purserj: You can sulk professionally? [Oh shit yes! I can sulk at AFI Award levels. Or is that Walkley levels?]

via TweetDeck

Wed plan, remainder: Step outside into KL humidity; noodles; stroll; 1930 Kaspersky cocktail reception where I don’t get to drink; sulk.

via TweetDeck

That nap helped.

via TweetDeck

@johnemcintyre I’m fairly sure the word “upcoming” is grounds for instant dismissal anyway.

via TweetDeck in reply to johnemcintyre

I think we’ve milked the “tragic conditions” thing for all it’s worth now. Please move on.

via TweetDeck

@veritychambers Well, WE were the luxury car on the freeway. We cruised into the city at, erm, should I say how fast? Not yet.

via TweetDeck in reply to veritychambers

@garystark Earlier I was tweeting via SMS. I think it works out a lot cheaper than data roaming, but of course it’s one-way only.

via TweetDeck in reply to garystark

@GeordieGuy The security guard waved. Which means 1. No bombs found, or 2. Bombs found, and he was waving a polite farewell.

via TweetDeck in reply to GordyPls

O hai, Hotel Foyer Wi-Fi!

via TweetDeck

I will not be so stupid as to turn on data roaming. I’ve learned my lesson there. I shall await proper access later.

via Cloudhopper

0530. It’s still dark. Nothing is open. Hotel 100% full overnight so they can’t give me a room yet. I will rest awhile.

via Cloudhopper

Car just checked for bombs before entering hotel car park and ramp to lobby.

via Cloudhopper

A large sign above the freeway tells me to check tragic conditions on Twitter. There is no traffic apart from us.

via Cloudhopper

SIAL Ekspres train hasn’t started, flight was early. Kaspersky has provided a limo instead. The roads are deserted.

via Cloudhopper

Cleared immigration. It’s not even 0430 here, airport almost silent. I await signs if baggage. The carousel whirs into motion.

via Cloudhopper

Touchdown Kuala Lumpur. Stand by for updates.
