Holy Crap - I'm in Kuala Lumpur!!

Like I said - Holy Crap I'm in Kuala Lumpur!! I am also lucky enough to have endless wireless internet in my hotel. I am about to head out for more adventures but I thought I'd share a few photos I took yesterday first. This was my breakfast yesterday, a Malaysian spin on pancakes - banana and ice cream on sweet roti bread. It was pretty good! It's Chinese New Year at the moment and of course there is a big Chinese population in Malaysia so the city is decorated - it's pretty impressive.I stumbled across this cool collection of painted bears, each one represents a different country and they are to raise awareness of peace, humanity and generally looking after each other.Here's New Zealand bear - I loved all the native birds over his body and the fact he has Tuatara on his feet.I went inside the Petronas Towers yesterday, which felt a whole lot like being in Taipei 101. I went to the most amazing book store and bought a great craft book which I will share sometime in the future.The KL Aquarium is near the towers, so I decided I HAD to go, if you've been reading my blog for a while you know all about my love of aquariums. It was also a chance to get out of the KL heat!
There was a small but lovely park next to the towers and aquarium which I took a stroll around. You had a great view of the towers from the park.Feeling pretty excited about everything - or maybe just going a little crazy due to the heat!Finally - some lit up trees near my hotel, I took this on my way home from dinner last night and they were really pretty. I couldn't really capture them that well with my wee camera, but I tried.I am off for more adventures now and then its time to fly to Phuket tonight - I can't wait! Hopefully I can blog more soon xoxox
