Dear All,

So we finally escaped and have been living it up in Kuala Lumpur for the past few days. We stepped off the plane after 14 hours and were immediately hit by the heat, 30 degrees and 89 percent humidity. We collected our bags and headed to our fancy hotel (we promised ourselves a little luxury before the budget kicks in - thanks Vicks) and we weren't disappointed.

This place is amazing, we stumbled in off the street with all our bags, drenched in sweat and feeling more than a little out of place (i have also shaved my head before setting out for minimum maintenance, so look straight out of Shameless). No sooner had we stepping into the air-conditioned luxury of the hotel lobby than a bowing hotel porter rushed over to take our dusty rucksacks, followed by another proffering chilled wet towels for our faces and glasses of refreshing iced tea. Not bad for £30 a night eh?

However we also seemed to have brought the rain with us and it began lashing it down about 2 hours after we got here. Born and bred in sunny Manchester, I was not about to let a little rain stop me enjoying the delights of the roof-top infinity pool though

Luckily, by the time we had got over the jet lag the weather has picked up and we ventured out on an archi-geek wander round the once-highest-in-the-world Petronas Towers (also i might add featuring quick prominently in the film Entrapment alongside the legend that is Sean Connery)

More sight-seeing ensued including the old colonial district, complete with very English cricket pitch, and dinner in China Town.DSC01753.jpg

Thats about it for now as we are still getting into the swing of things. Tonight is the the famous Saturday night market in 'Little India', where we are hoping to sample some tasty Indian treats, and hopefully we will avoid any 'Ghandi's Revenge' before our flight to Bali tomorrow when the adventure really begins.
