I applied for a Malaysian visa today and if I get it by Friday looks like I am all set to go to Kuala Lumpur for 4 days or so. The occasion is Malaysia International Tourism Bloggers Conference and Awards and I have been invited as a speaker. It was a very pleasant experience to apply for the visa. The form is not too difficult and they require only a few documents. I can track it online and almost everyone I have talked to they say it gets processed in a reasonable time. Fingers crossed.
And as soon as I come back (assuming I get the visa and go to Malaysia) I would head to the Everest Base Camp trek almost immediately.
PS. Many thanks to Anuradha Goyal for putting me in touch with the organizers.
