Aug 1, 2019 - Kuala Lumpor, Day 2

We went to the breakfast buffet at 7:00. It was largely set for Muslim, Chinese and Indian tastes. There was a small section of Western food which I used today. Jean likes to experiment with her breakfast food. We returned to the room until our pick-up at 8:30. Yus drove us through the heavy morning traffic. We waited at one intersection for about five minutes. Instead of letting the lights control the traffic, a police officer was controlling the traffic. Yus pointed out that the Green Line and Blue Line buses are free to try to encourage...

Jul 31, 2019 - Kuala Lumpur

We went down at 7:00 to the breakfast buffet. It was OK and I enjoyed the meal. We then left the hotel at 8:30 for our journey to Kuala Lumpur. As we traveled along I edited the previous day's pictures so that when I get to the hotel this afternoon and have an internet connection, I would be able to upload them. Along the way, I took pictures of some of the billboards to show what audience they were targeting, and the blend of languages. We did do a quick WC stop before entering the city. We drove through the city with Yus pointing out...

Feb 16, 2009 - A day in the life of a traveller

Before leaving Sandakan for the Cameron Highlands, via Kuala Lumpor again, we met up briefly with Jade, who had just flown in that morning. It was great to catch up with her, if only for a couple of hours, and hear about her relaxing times on Lombok. We also gave her a few tips about things to do, and transport difficulties, but she still managed to get herself into strife! After a marathon day of travelling, by taxi, plane, plane again and then bus, we finally arrived in Kuala Lumpor at 10.30pm, ten hours after leaving Jade and Sandakan....

Feb 10, 2009 - Batu Caves and the Hindu Festival

After some deliberation, Josh and I decided not to visit the Batu Caves on the main day of the Thaipusam Hindu festival, one, because hundreds of thousands of other people were going to be there, and two, because devotees tend to engage in masochistic feats, such as inserting large hooks into their backs and pulling things along. Having already seen a show like that in Australia recently, where I promptly fainted!! I decided to give it a miss. On the day we attended it was still extremely busy. Unfortunately as well, all the rubbish from...

Feb 9, 2009 - Getting out and about in KL

Phew! Well our first full day in Kuala Lumpor was a big one, we walked practically ALL OVER the city (okay, a slight exaggeration, but we figure about 10km), and saw lots of interesting things, but getting very sweaty in the process! It was a stinking hot day, I'm talking 45 degrees in the shade and about 100% humidity! However, we bravely set out, hat, sunglasses and sunscreen in hand, and plowed into the heart of the city. First stop, the Kuala Lumpor Tower, which is the third largest communications tower in the world. It really dominates...

Feb 7, 2009 - I love Kuala Lumpor

Saturday was a bit of a sad day, Josh and I had to say goodbye to Jade and Luke, and go our seperate ways... us to Kuala Lumpor, Jade and Luke to Lombok. So after a few tears and some hugs, Josh and I hopped onto our chartered minibus and headed back to the airport. After a very smooth time through customs, though a bit of shock at the departure tax which has unexpectedly increased from 100,000 rupee to 150,000!! we waved goodbye to Bali and hello to Malaysia! Australians don't have to pay for a visa in Malaysia, which is great, because...
