The end of our Asia time arrived, and one could say it was perfectly times as we were ready to say goodbye to the heat. I only spent a few dozen hours second guessing the Malaysia over Vietnam choice, and then it was time to move on. An engineer turned cab driver made our departure more interesting, educating us on the previous mandatory retirement at 55, the growth of electronics business in Penang and now competition from cheaper neighbors, and the country’s various quota systems.
But the sweetest part of the exit was the upgrade. Malaysia Airlines lets you bid on an upgrade, and my savvy partner in crime secured it with the lowest bid! The legroom and extra wine may have spoiled is for future travels! Yes, a success with Malaysian Airlines- fear not.
