I'm in KL for a regional arts meeting, my last in East Asia. It doesn't officially start till tomorrow so spent most of the time briefing my successor Nick on all things China.
But never mind China, it's World Cup mania here. Malaysia have never reached the World Cup themselves, a fact forced home in an amusingly dry book of the same name I bought from a book stall today.
It is subtitled a '40-Year Chronicle of Failure', which is as good a description of England's participation in the same competition.
