Hello from Malaysia!
Flying through Friday night and eventually arriving on Saturday night local time makes it feel like I've lost a whole day travelling and as I write my first thoughts of this year's Far East tour on Sunday afternoon, my body clock is extremely confused!
Taking in the Malaysian capital's Saturday nightlife until 4am this morning probably didn't help!
My arrival has been quiet and unnoticed of course which is more than can be said for our squad's. The beauty of the internet and Twitter means I can keep totally up to date with that side of the tour.
I will be trying to give you a small insight into what it's like to be here for a travelling Gooner from Blighty.
This afternoon has been totally dedicated to taking in some rays and boy is it hot!
Plans are in place to enjoy the night-time sights and sounds once again but by the time you read this it will be time for the first 'football' connected part to my own personal trip.
Monday sees a 'Fans Party' for the locals to enjoy followed by the open training session in the Bukit Jalil Stadium.
As of now I expect to be at both, as long as my body doesn't react unkindly to tonight's events!
