You may call me Giearth (my family and friends called me Young). I'm a proud Malaysian Sino-Kadazan, Sino=Chinese (NOT the China's Chinese: here in Malaysia, 3 largest races are Malay, Chinese, and Indian, again, NOT the India's (or American's) Indian, plus other 'not so minority' races like Dusun/Kadazan, Iban/Dayak etc.; for more information please visit http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Malaysia). If you don't know where Malaysia is, I'll be VERY surprised. But surely you've heard of Singapore, Malaysia is just north of it.
When I was younger, I've bested with the best, but rested like the rest. :D As White, I almost always play e4 and seldomly a3, g3 or d4... As Black, I play Sicilian (I try to play as random as possible all its variations), French, Alhekine, KID, Benko, Benoni, QID and others... I love peace, and freedom to express/practice our rights. I'm against terrorism, and supression of freedom and human rights. And if I'm in your IGNORE LIST, please inform me. :D
P/s: Come and visit Malaysia especially year 2007 because we are hosting Visit Malaysia Year commemorating 50 years of independence (from the British). We have many places of interest i.e.: Petronas Twin Tower within Kuala Lumpur City Centre a.k.a. KLCC a.k.a. Petronas Twin Tower(Highest twin tower in the World currently, as in May 2007); Kuala Lumpur (KL)Tower (Highest McD outlet in the world is here, KL Tower almost as high as Petronas twin tower), Sepang International Circuit (F1 race and other major car/motorbike races are held here) etc.
We also have many beaches and islands, perfect place for SCUBA dive or simply resting. If you are into more arduous activities, I suggest mountain climbing or jungle trekking, or even SCUBA diving all over Malaysia. ;p We have the highest mountain in South East Asia, Mount Kinabalu (4,095.2 metres or 13,435.7 ft) situated in Sabah, West malaysia. We are one of the few place to have virgin rainforest and host varieties of rare flora and fauna...
Wait, that is not enough for you? We are (one of) the friendliest and helpful people you'll ever meet and if you come here, you would be amazed on how "civilized" and respectful (not to mention peaceful) people we are. OK, so you're in tight budget, don't need to worry, we have many (clean and cheap) budget hotels/homestays/hostels, and the transportations are extensive and although you might get lost :D there will be someone who'll show you to the right direction. We have budget air travel (please check www.AirAsia.com for more information) and they also offer travel packages.
Many tourists might want to include their visits to Malaysia when they're visiting Thailand and Singapore. Hey, we are neighbours! And a very good one too. :)
