After Round 5, today was the first of two rest days during the Malaysian Open. Although the plan was to check out some of the tourist hotspots around Kuala Lumpur, our fatigue from the World Juniors was too great, and we confined ourselves to the megamall and another big shopping centre next door to it.
Typical breakfast consumption (I only finished two thirds)
Although the conditions here (food, location, hotel quality etc.) are all better than at the World Juniors in Chennai, things aren't as fun without our friends from overseas we met there...
So, it was a relaxed rest day, with a bit of shopping, some gymming and more eating - we hope to go sightseeing on the second rest day in 3 day's time, scheduled before the final, Round 9.
After my World Juniors began with five White wins, my Malaysian Open has begun with five Black wins. I hope the trend won't continue when I am White in Round 6 tomorrow.
