I know I've been quiet....that's because I'm on holiday in Malaysia. We've just spent three days in Kuala Lumpur, and have never seen so many gigantic shopping malls in such a small area. Shopping is practically a religion there. There's plenty to see and the food is amazing - oh, and to my relief, they know how to make a decent coffee, so I was able to get my daily espresso fix.
The famous Petronas twin towers were well worth a visit. We didn't bother queuing for tickets to go up to the viewing platform, just enjoyed the view from the ground. Then we popped into the Traders Hotel across the park for a drink at their 33rd floor Skybar, and watched the towers change as the sky darkened and the lights came on.
We did some exploring of Little India last night and the plan for today was to check out Chinatown and some of the historic buildings along the sea front, maybe visit a temple or two and take some killer photos, before heading out for a celebratory dinner in honour of Bike Boy's birthday.
Uh...it didn't quite work out that way. I was struck down by a nasty tummy bug last night, possibly courtesy of the fish salad I ate for lunch yesterday, and spent the day in bed, alternately sleeping and chugging electrolyte solution and bottled water. The birthday boy was left to explore the town on his lonesome. I valiantly struggled out of bed at sunset though, and we went in search of dinner.
Let's hope tomorrow brings a more fun day for yours truly.
