Lumut, Perak, Malaysia
Yesterday I met someone interesting that lives in the same building. He is a sailor from Belgium and has sailed across the ocean for few years and now stay in Asia since 2016, he has his boat in the marina nearby and is stuck here because of covid. He usually does boat trips with some tourists to Indonesian islands. We had lunch together, it was interesting to discuss our story. It has been months since I haven’t talked to any Westerner. Also, this guy knows the area quite well so he highlighted some interesting spots to explore.
The rest of the day I worked from cafes. I also found out the building management has a gym in another building so they gave me access thus I can exercise sometimes. This night and this morning were raining a lot, so I had to change my plan of going on the nearby hiking path uphill.
I also finally sent the newsletter for Articulated but found out afterward there is a small mistake, as it states February instead of March. I read proof at least 5 times but still was a mistake. It is now sent, so there isn’t much I can do about it now. Later in the evening, we learned that MCO (Movement Control Order) has been extended in all Malaysia until 1 August, but it still doesn’t state if overstay amnesty is also extended, so I will have to wait for official announcements.
