Day 1 of TechEd Malaysia went off without a hitch. SQL Hera, Kimberly Tripp, did a 7.5 hour precon while the rest of us took the morning off and visited the Batu Caves, amazing 1,000 foot long limestone stalagmite/tite cave that were used by Hindus as a temple. An amazing thing to think about is the natural cathedial that formed in the caves and the Hindus put in the statues. We had to walk up over 275 steps and jump over ravenous monkeys to get in.
There was also a Hindu god that had a cow with boobs. Pretty cool stuff.
After an authentic Malaysian lunch at a local dive we headed to the Chinese Buddhist temple. Quite an amazing place. I lit some incense and also washed my face with holy water for luck. I also received a fortune with Chinese fortune sticks.
After this fun it was back to the conference center. My first session (1 of 5) is tomorrow.
