I hate to disappoint Star Trek fans but the women on Ferringhi wear clothes, in fact a lot of clothes. And many of them wear black. Also they are allowed to drive.
There are many strange things about the Planet Ferringhi (local spelling) including horses drinking in bars.
Batu Ferringhi is a beautiful beach resort about 30 minutes by Bus from Georgetown on the Island of Penang.
We are waiting for news from Emirates to see if the Volcano is going to force us to stay here a bit longer. There are worse places to be stuck :-)
