So KL is over L, I write this as I sit on the plane to Hong Kong…business class baby J….Seat 1A (not chosen by me) leg room to die for! More courses of food than I care to count, sitting next to some British toff of a business man, hopefully pissing him off by my smacking my lips loudly. He's too billy big time to turn off his electronic device for take-off as kindly requested by the exceptional flight staff. He's got the times cross word going on. #that should distract him from the immature teenage comedies I'll watch in a minute…
Today felt busy if largely uneventful. A morning trip to the JW Marriott Hotel in Bukit Bintang to see the food hall and toilets, yes toilets, in the basement (Thank you Mary). The toilets were a tip off from a colleague and although the visit was awkwardly short, they did not disappoint. Unfortunately a man was there to supervise or even advise on toilet use so I felt a cursory look not practical. Brief performance aside I went to wash my hands for the real spectacle of the toilets, A pump-lever type system that the toilet advisor kindly actioned for me to start the flow of water from the bamboo piping, What a feature, picture not appropriate given the setting but well worth the visit, A little shopping (there was a piano staircase inthe shopping centre!)and Some Nasi Lemak (steamed rice, fried anchovies, part boiled eggs and curry sauce) with Kopi later I picked up my bags from the hotel, bartered a taxi fair to the train station and I was on my way. Goodbye Bukit Bintang.
Arrive at KL sentral station and straight to the most convenient part of my day, I checked in for the flight at the train station, ditched my luggage to be seen (hopefully) again in Hong Kong and headed off to enjoy the Lake Gardens.
Although difficult to get to, some hap-hazard road crossings and no signage, the gardens were beautiful, peaceful and a real escape from city hustle and bustle. I didn't have long but enjoyed it between the brief showers. And i managed to crash another wedding photo-shoot. Bonus! Back to the station, on the train and off to KLIA. Quick change into suitable flight attire Didn't think shorts t-shirt and flip flops suitable for business class and I'm good to go…loads to see in Hong Kong. Cannot wait.
