When I started this blog it was 14.10 local time and after a looong journey I am finally here! Site seeing and everything! I have ventured into the city and found central Market. Not eaten since the plane yesterday so I'm pretty hungry and head to the first place I see. It's called 77 and I am guessing it's a kind of Malaysian fast food chain, no burgers though, strictly rice/noodles which suits me fine!
My flights were pretty non eventful, i didn't get upgraded (boo) but I had three seats to myself for the second flight which was a sort of consolation prize, at least it gave me chance to stretch out. I watched lots of films and TV programmes to pass the time. KL airport is HUGE, you have to get a train to the arrivals hall! So it took a little while to get my bags etc and by the time I arrived at Carol's apartment it was almost midnight. Carol is the sister of my dads work friend Joey who has kindly offered to put me up for a couple of nights in Kuala Lumpur before I head to Borneo, thanks Carol! I also had a welcome party of Abigail and Levi the 3 year old twins who are very cute.
A few things from 'The List' still need to be done, buy a sim card, mossie repellent etc but you'll be pleased to know that I wont bore you with every detail!!
Since I wrote the first half of the blog I have had busy afternoon...Shopping at central Market (to avoid massive thunderstorm), ventured up KL tower and to the aquarium and spent the evening in china town having gorgeous street food, tiger beer and a reflexology massage. Well if you're going to be a tourist might as well pack it all in eh!?
Will sign off tonight, tired but happy :)
