Hein,
Thanks for the postcard. I would love to see those towers myself someday. I remember they were in a film with Sean Connery and that hot brunette chic(forget her name). I bet they are even more impressive up-close and personal. So cool just having a postcard stamped from Malaysia.

Alright, I'm addicted! I've been picking up postcards while I walk around San Fran and other places so - I've got a couple people here on the list but if anyone else wants - let me know. Send me a PM - I'm dying to start collecting form all over the world.

Isa - are there any countries that you don't have postcards from yet? Just wondering if you've been able to span the globe yet. Do postmen fear you? ;)

Hi Lance,

Yes, you should come here to see the twin towers in your own eyes. They have never failed to get me to take a look at them whenever I drove passed the road in front of it, day or night.

The movie is Entrapment (1999), starring Sean Connery and hot brunette chic Catherine Zeta-Jones. The biggest goof in that movie was that they showed a boat in a river in a forest with the towers in the background. This had the political leaders fuming as they said the movie gave movie watchers around the world an impression that Kuala Lumpur was still full of forests and the only tall building there was the twin towers. Another movie that made the political leaders fuming was Disclosure (1994), starring Michael Douglas and Demi Moore. In that movie, it was said that a computer silicon chip factory could not be built in Malaysia because the environment was too dusty and lacked skilled workforce as many people still lived in the trees!!! Haha, what a joke. I wonder if they knew that many of the Intel processor in your PC were made in Malaysia. Intel and Motorola factories have existed here for the past 30 years. Thinking back, maybe that's their intention, to make us look bad. More recently, the movie Zoolander (2001) starred by Ben Stiller was banned here because in the movie, one of the main plot was about the assasination of the Prime Minister of Malaysia. Stupid censors!

Ok, enough ranting. Back to the topic. Now that you're hooked, send more postcards!!!

Glad the Cambodian postal service is now in working order after my last attempt to send postcards from there a few years ago!!!!

Lee, you will not be disappointed with Cambodia on your RTW trip.
