Unfortunately on day four we had to leave Melaka which was really sad, we did have a wonderful time there.Our next stop was Kuala Lumpur and we decided to get a bus to KL as it was the cheapest and easiest option. So we found a bus service we liked (there were so many) and arrived in KL a few hours later. We navigated the metro system and made it to our hotel and decided we needed some down time so spend much of the afternoon relaxing. We did watch an awesome 1970s movie called Rollercoaster - usually I can't find ANYTHING on TV to watch when traveling, but this was rad.
In the evening we decided to head out and find some food. Near the hotel was a night market - we didn't actually know the market was there. We were just lucky enough to stumble across it.
Lanterns and delicious food - what more do you need for a great night out?
On our way there we came across the National Mosque, I did visit the National Mosque on my last visit and thought it was great. We stopped off so Rich could have a look as well.
We visited the Petronas Towers to cool down, have some lunch and shop at our favourite bookshop Kinokuniya! I did buy a couple of sewing books which I will share with you guys at some point.
However, there are some more establish shops lining the street where the market is located and I did find a fabric store which made me happy. Otherwise the shopping here is horrible. I realised soon as I got there how much I didn't want to be there LAST time I was there! If I ever say I want to go to Jalan Petaling in Kuala Lumpur again stop me from doing it - ok?
Our first day and a bit in KL was pretty fun - despite the heat and Jalan Petaling. The third day was even better though. It involves monkeys!
