Up and at them earlier then yesterday morning. Most places were still closed, although we managed to find a cafe for a tea and a coffee.
We wondered back through the market which is much more spacious during the day. We grabbed some brunch at a corner hawker food centre. Fried rice for Siobh and chicken and rice hot pot for me. The heat was unbearable and in an attempt to prevent Siobh from fainting we sneaked into mc Donald's for a 1 ringgit (33 cents/ 20pence) ice cream and air con.
The famous Petronas towers were on the agenda for this afternoon. The huge twin towers, linked with a bridge on the 42nd floor, dominates the KL skyline. There quite impressive, especially as the exterior is clad in reflective metal sheeting.
The elevator ride to the top ridiculously cost over $30 a person...I'm sure the view would have been great!
With no free option of climbing the stairs we happily wondered the mall and took an interrupted walk of the park before the rain came in for the afternoon.
We took shelter in a Krispy creme with a helping of donuts and tea! We jumped on the metro and headed back to Chinatown. On the walk back to out hotel I spotted a hawker stall selling popiah. Something I had read about in a local food magazine. We sat, we tried, we loved, so much that it is the latest edition to Siobhs food list. "Popiah: an uber-spring roll stuffed with shredded carrots, prawns, chilli, garlic, palm sugar and much, much more!"
We headed home to rest out throbbing legs and a shower.
For dinner, another round of Popiah. Only we realised we only had enough money left for a drink and one plate. We had one plate and a drink for starters, settled the bill, left to find ATM, came back, ordered another round of popiah along with wonton noodles and roast duck with rice and sat stuffed people watching the night away.
