Malaysia and Cambodia


This is about my upcoming trip to Malaysia and Cambodia. The first part is pre-trip - information about flights, itineraries, accommodation and all the things that you need to do to plan an overseas holiday. This is my first trip to Asia and I hope it may help others. Comments are very welcome and anyone who has travelled to Malaysia and/or Cambodia, please feel free to comment and offer any advice or tips that you think would be helpful. As of today ( 28th February) , in exactly 11 days (minus 30 minutes) I will be in Kuala Lumpur.

I had the most amazing time and hope you enjoy reading about my trip. Each post is numbered and I'm doing them in order from start to finish - a little like a diary.



76. Hard Rock Cafe @ Hard Rock Hotel and a Rock Band

Hard Rock Cafe
I could hear the music rocking and the sounds emanating from the cafe were thrilling and inviting. And boy was it loud!

The Hard Rock Cafe is on the ground floor of the Hard Rock Hotel and I went there for a coffee while I waited for our driver. Live concerts are held here - Hard Rock and loud, the music was fantastic. There is priceless memorabilia from local, as well as international celebrities on display.

Above: Memorabilia
The cafe is adorned with pieces from Hard Rock’s world-famous memorabilia collection, including items representative of both contemporary stars and rock legends, such as Keith Richards, Stevie Nicks, Madonna and many more. Additional key memorabilia items on display include a grey felt Fedora hat worn by Prince when all live tracks for his smash hit “Purple Rain” were recorded, custom-made leather pants and Cruefest t-shirt worn by Vince Neil of Motley Crue on the “Cruefest” Tour, and an outfit by “Junker Designs” worn by Rob Nicholson of Rob Zombie fame during the 2005 OZZFEST Tour.

It had been many years since I'd been to a live show and I'd forgotten how loud it was - you couldn't hear yourself speak, conversation was almost impossible and the coffee was expensive. But the atmosphere and aura of fun made up for it.

One Step Rock Band
There was a fantastic band playing and they were very good. They were amazing, playing classic rock, the oldest band member is 15 and the drummer is only 11.

Only 11 years old, this lad plays the drums like he was born with a set of drumsticks in his hands.

The boy, who I was told is of a similar age to the drummer, (he's actually 10) was absolutely wonderful - he was so professional for one so young. He really had the crowd rocking, and already he's a hearthrob with the girls!

Their guitar work was amazing.

Interview with the Band

All the lads are from Penang and have been playing since around 2009. Members include Erwin (Vocalist), Iskandar (Lead Guitarist), Irwan (Bassist), and Faris (Rythm Guitarist).

One Step Jam Session

I really enjoyed listening to the boys. They were fantastic and the vocalist was so professional, you wouldn't have thought he was just a boy. Great band, great music. Well done boys.
