About me & other things (yes, the boring part):

(click here to bypass this bit)

Hi, my name is Mike and I am 35 year old Railway Civil Engineer currently working in the UK, although until recently I was working as an 'ex-pat' in Malaysia on a major railway infrastructure project. For those of you not too sure of where or what Malaysia is, a short geography lesson follows.

Malaysia consists of two land masses, Peninsular Malaysia (the main part) in the West and East Malaysia (not surprisingly to the East). Peninsular Malaysia lies between Singapore to the South and Thailand to the North with it's West coast bordering the Malacca Straits and on it's East coast, the warm waters of the South China Sea gently lap. (to be continued.....)

 

 

 

My hobbies include rock climbing, caving, the cinema, the Internet (of course) and the links below are intended to reflect this..

Below are a number of places on the web that I think are worth a visit either because they're useful or because they are just fun. Because the number of links has grown to such an extent that it was becomming difficult to browes them easily, I have catogorized them into suitable groupings and have provided (at no extra cost) the navigation bar below to aid you. (Actually, there aren't that many links but I just liked the idea of the navigation bar!)
