Good point. Singapore is definitely south of Langkawi...
Also I am not 100% sure about the "dangerous goods, bureaucracy, has to come by ship in 3 months" story - Sounds like Asian legend - i.e. often when faced with a difficult task (or I don't want to bother) locals will tell you that it can't be done.
Goods, dangerous or otherwise are trucked back and forth to Malaysia all day every day. What's the difference between a ship from "America" or a truck from Singapore?
@Lantau - Did you call the raft guys? Just curious.
Also what are you gonna do? Wait 3 months?
(Oh - BTW I was in our local chandlery
this week. There is what looks like a 4-man raft in her shop waiting for a buyer)
