Now you may ask why Malaysia.
I first came to the Far East in 1960 being a member of the Royal Air Force and having been posted to Singapore. It was hot and steamy. After a short acclimatisation, one had to complete a jungle survival course, which we were petrified at. The thought of having to survive in the jungle for a week, on our own resources with the prospects of having to put up with snakes, leaches mosquitos and torrential rain.
Named "The Golden Chersonese" by ancient Indian, Arab and Chinese mariners, Malaysia occupies the southern most tip of Asia as well as the land mass bordering the South China seaboard of the great island of Borneo. Malaysia is located right in the heart of South East Asia and with a land area of 329,750 sq km it is a little bigger than the United Kingdom.
