On another bus to my next stop Cameron Highlands a bit later than planned. Slept through my alarm after another late one lastnight!
I spent two nights in KL and for me that was enough. I enjoyed it there but I think it was more because of the people I met than the city itself.
I arrived in the late afternoon and used the easy to navigate train system to get to my hostel. Thankfully the hostel was So welcoming and looked like a hotel! I was even given a towel!
I went for a wander to the nearby central market and Chinatown. The market has lots of good fakes and you can bargain and haggle to your hearts content. I bought a handbag I badly needed for 8euros when his initial price was 28euros! Brought me back to the days of Daddy teaching me how to haggle in Turkey years ago. 🙂
Chinatown was fairly underwhelming compared to Singapore.
Headed back to the hostel for the free dinner. Small but did the job and then I joined a few from my room on the rooftop for some drinks.
I met some friends that were over to get married in KL for a Latin night on bar street. Finished the night off at the skewer stations that have anything you can think of on skewers and you can steam or fry them yourself. Yum!!
A few of us from the hostel spent the next day exploring. We went to the towers,the towers park, chocolate museum, IMBI and Butik food markets.
I tried the seriously spicy but tasty tomyam soup and sweetcorn ice-cream which was actually nice!
As I move up through Malaysia the food is getting more oriental. As usual I’m loving tasting all the new and unusual delicacies. Dinner was chicken porridge. Sounds discusting butwas actually my favourite meal so far!
For my lastnight I joined girls I met in Melaka for a pub crawl with their hostel Sunshine Bedz. I mainly went because they’re first stop was Skybar which has the best views of the towers at night.
It’s quite a fancy place but on Wednesdays it’s ladies night. Free drinks all night!! We spent a few hours here before hitting bar street for another pub with free drinks for the ladies all night!! Hence the headache today. Finished the night with more skewers and sweet potato leaves, as you do!
After a detox juice from my usual cart across the road and a scallop porridge I was ready for the four hour bus to Cameron Highlands. Looking forward to getting away from cities for a bit.
