where to?

Some clues on where I’m heading in +/- 16 hours from now.

Clue #1:

During a phone call with a staff at the money changer where I usually buy foreign currencies...

Me: Do you have stock of XXX? *the currency of the country I’m going to*
Guy: Come again?
Me: XXX... *saying it slowly this time*
Guy: What is that actually?
Me: You know, the currency of XXXXX *mentioning the country’s name*
Guy: Oh, sorry, we don’t have that.

Very few Malaysians go to the country that the money changer guy had no clue of its currency!

Clue #2:

Chatting with my colleague Mr. K who just returned from US last week...

Mr. K: Do you need USD? You can buy from me. I have some leftovers.
Me: Sure. At what rate are you selling them to me?
Mr. K: Why don’t you check the buying and selling rate at the money changer. Then we’ll take the average. It will be a win-win.
Me: I’ll do that. Will let you know later.
Mr. K: Do you need other currencies? I have some other currencies too.
Me: Do you have XXX?
Mr. K: Huh? No.
Me: What about YYY?
Mr. K: No. People don’t go to those places that you are going to!

Oh well, all the more reason why I want to go there!

Clue #3:

I’m calling this trip “South to South to South”.


My travel book, containing printouts of necessary documents for the trip (i.e. itinerary, maps, booking confirmations).

This time around I took extra measures to make sure that the binding was done on the correct side, so no, last year’s booboo didn’t repeat itself. I think I might have scared the girl at the binding shop in the process. Closely watched her punching pages after pages, just to be safe ;-)

So, can you already guess where I’m going to? Should be easier now. Those who already knew... ssshhhhh... let others have fun guessing!
