A tropical sun and clouds laden with the making of a sudden downpour compete for the skies of Malaysia, with the odds on the sun. Malaysia's seasons follow the monsoon winds, which splash rains inland from September to December on the west coast of the peninsula, only to be overtaken by sunshine within the hour. Rains arrive later, between October and February, on the east coast of peninsular Malaysia and in Sabah and Sarawak. Malaysia's weather, however, is generally warm, humid and sunny all year round, with temperatures wavering between 32 degrees Celsius (90F) during the day and 22 degrees Celsius (72F) at night.
The Malaysian currency note is the Ringgit Malaysia (RM), which is divided into 100 sen. With the introduction of the new currency control measures on October 1, travellers have to declare the money that they are bringing in or taking out of the country. Under the new foreign exchange control measures travellers are allowed to carry into and out of the country, Ringgit notes amounting to not more that RM 1,000. They are also allowed to carry out of Malaysia foreign currency and travellers cheques not exceeding the equivalent of RM 10,000. Thus from October 1, everyone who passes through the country's 34 entry points are required to fill in a declaration form and submit it to the immigration authorities when arriving or departing the country.
