My first article for CNN was published today

I'm now a contracted freelance writer for CNNGo.com which is a travel website run by CNN. My first article is called 'Top 5 day trips from Kuala Lumpur' and it was published on their website www.cnngo.com today. Feel free to have a read here: http://www.cnngo.com/explorations/play/top-5-day-trips-kuala-lumpur-841636

I got the gig because I'm a bit of a specialist in Malaysian Travel. Do you remember the line in the movie 'Something About Mary' when the actor Lee Evans (the guy faking it with the crutches) claims "Who's been to Santiago Chile three times in one year?" Well I have been to Kuala Lumpur three times in one year, when I was persuading my Malay wife to marry me. I've now been seven times (number eight coming later this year), so my pitch to CNN was that I have the knowledge of a local and the enthusiasm of a tourist.
