At lunch time we got on a coach and headed to Kuala Lumpur, the capital of Malaysia. This coach was ridiculous! The seats were like armchairs, they reclined and had foot rests. Such a huge improvement to the previous coach trips where we usually started the journey with "it can't be worse than Laos".
This was going to be a fun trip! We got comfy and settled down for the ride which took a while longer than expected but this is usual in Asia.
Around 5pm, we arrived in the city of skyscrapers. They are obsessed with them, constantly building new ones without finishing the ones that they have started.
One of Marks friends, Si lives in KL with his wife Nic and they kindly offered us their spare room to stay in whilst in the city which was much appreciated as we wanted some space away from the hostels and it would save us some money. The photo attached to this blog was taken from their balcony overlooking the city, a view I could never get bored of. It's a shame the haze lingered so we could see it in all its glory.
That night we headed out for a few (many) drinks in the city centre. The first stop was a rooftop bar which had an "all you can drink mojito" offer for the equivalent of £9. I like a mojito so this was awesome. Mark had his first mojito that night and his ninth haha.
After that bar we headed to another that was showing a football game, not sure which as I wasn't paying attention, too distracted by 2-for-1 cocktails.
Back home in the UK, it was my Auntie Lisa's wedding day so I facetimed the wedding which was lovely and much more emotional than I thought it would be - although the 7 cocktails might be to blame. It was nice to be a part of her special day though.
