          We visited a British fort lots of museums and there was so much to see. The British army had a base at the top of penang hill 800m above sea level and the officers were carried up there by Indians in sedan chairs, wouldn't have fancied that was very steep we got the funicular railway up which was hairaising in itself although ...

          As an Occupational Therapist, I am also sensitive to accessibility for seniors and for the disabled. I feel Malaysia is making an effort to be more accessible but it has a long way to go. Buildings have lifts and ramps but they have way too many steps and hazards inside the building ...
