Sorry for not posting sooner. Unfortunately we have been having such a great time in the sun, restaurants and bars of Kuala Lumpur we have not been near a computer in days (although we are both suffering withdrawal symptoms as a result hence this posting!)
Kuala Lumpur was a strange one. Very, very busy with terrifying drivers (and that’s coming from someone who has been in the car with both Mags and the Vonster driving). The drive from the airport was mental with 5 lanes of drivers on a 3 lane road! Nerve-jangling but amusing to look back on now!
We went up the Kuala Lumpur communications tower (4th Largest in the world) and ate in the revolving restaurant. We’d decided to treat ourselves to somewhere plush – worked out about £10 a head for an amazing view and the novelty of being in a revolving restaurant. It was pretty amazing and was topped only by the sight of monsoon style rain and thunder/lightening storm – never seen a storm like this it was stunning. We seemed to be the only ones looking up to the sky and enjoying it!
The food was great and very tasty. You will all be amazed to learn that I, yes, Mr ‘never seems to be full’ Batty was surviving on one bowl of noodles a day – impressive huh? Maybe it was the heat, we’re just not used to it.
We also spent a full morning walking round the KL Bird Park which kept us amused for a long time despite u not being interested in birds in the slightest! The heat in there was amazing and it was weird but we sat down for a minute and leant on our knees, it was literally for a second and yet when we moved we had wet arm markes on our clothes!
Arrived in Oz today so not much to say about that yet so keep checking back for updates kids!
Will try and post some pics on this over the next few days too.
Off for now as want to walk on beach then go for food.
Also, can’t escape these bloody computers. My first job of the day was to install the wireless router round here at Nick’s place. Now that it is working, I can get the blog entry posted.
