We went to Malaysia to see the Petronas towers...we wished we had more time to visit the rest of the country. On our first night we went to China town to grab a quick bite. We shared a chicken pot...chicken roasted over rice and cooked in a ceramic pot. It was delicious with a cold beer ( andy) and some veggies on the side. When the bill came we were surprised to see it was barely $8 for the whole meal. We then set out to find the towers. We got some really great shots of it in the moonlight and wandered around the adjoining mall for a little bit. We then headed back to Chinatown to get a nightcap and fill up on 30cent baggies of cut fruits. On our second day, the towers were closed to tourists so we enjoyed the view from the water fountain out front. We wandered around Little India and headed back to the pool at our hotel. Unfortunately, I came down with a terrible bout of heatstroke and laid in bed the rest of the night. We were unable to go out that night nor the next morning since i was drowsy with medication. So ultimately, we never got to see the sky bridge at the Petronas towers, but we did see them at night and day. We did n't miss much though...andy stepped out to look for motrin for me and said it was pouring outside so we would have spent the night in anyways.
Today we flew from Kuala Lumpur to Singapore. We didn't know that there were 2 international airports in KL...both are named KUL. We went to the wrong one and missed our flight. When we got to the right one we had to forfeight our ticket and pay for a new one. AirAsia has super cheap flights but their luggage allowance is limited to 15kgs...and charges $5 per Kg....we were way over weight so we had to pay an additional fee for our luggage. Luckily they didn't weigh the 30lb buddah andy has been carrying on his back since cambodia.
