We recently spent 2 days at Malaysia's Fraser's Hill where we worked on an upcoming food story. Fraser's Hill is at 1500 meters above sea level making it possibly the only place in Malaysia where I have actually felt compelled to wear a jacket. The fog reminded me of a slightly more humid northern California.
Minus the non-Californian wildlife (Berkeley excluded).
Our article on George Town's rebirth since landing Unesco designation appears in today's New York Times (click here for the slideshow). It's amazing to see the transformation that is taking place here. But maybe more amazing that so much remains unchanged. It'll be interesting to see what the years ahead bring.
