It's been a year since I visited Malaysia for the second time with my mother.
Unfortunately, I never got around to posting my full diary from that trip. (My last entry actually took place just before we arrived.
I abandoned the diary for a couple of reasons.
First, I had some feelings about the trip that I wasn't sure I should be shared with everyone (and I really should write about that someday). Secondly, I started my job with Bleacher Report soon after my return and just never had the time to devote to the diary. Several entries are still on my iPad and could be cut-and-pasted, but they always needed a polish.
But I recently saw this video about Asian squat toilets, which reminded me of the months before my first visit to Malaysia in 2008. I had heard about the squat toilets and was concerned that I'd have to use them.
