The day after, Jeffery (the man who organised the project day) invited us to lunch. He picked us up from the university accommodation and drove us around the city. He was like our very own personal tour guide! It was great, he pointed out all the landmarks and told us a little story about each.

He drove us to our hostel (Reggae Mansion) where we checked in and put our luggage in the room.

We visited the memorial statue which had crests from all the different people who fought for the independence of Malaysia. It was really cool, and the views were amazing.

Next he took us to a shopping mall which is famous for it's Chinese cuisine. Imagine little food courts selling their own unique food with tables and chairs in between. Jeffery chose us beef meatballs and noodles with veg. It was delicious. He paid £6 for the three of us! For desert he bought over two dishes, one was crushed ice topped with sugar cane, green flour which looked like worms (he told me they were real and I believed him!). The other was like rice pudding with no sweet taste to it, I didn't like that one.

After lunch he drove us to a butterfly farm. When we walked in we were like WOW! There was a net over the top so they didn't escape, waterfalls, trees, plants it was lovely. We walked around totally in awe of the park. So many different coloured/sized butterfly's.

Next we went to a handicraft market, and sat in a traditional Chinese coffee shop, Jeffery ordered us drinks and steamed bread. It was so tasty, so so fresh, very moist and hot, it tasted like nothing I've ever tasked before.

We headed back to our hostel where we said our goodbyes and parted for the night. I've attached pictures of our room in the hostel as you have to look at it to see what it was like. Individual rooms with red curtains to separate you from everyone else, even though there were 16 in a room it felt like you had your own private room. There was 4 air conditioning units in the room and storage for our bags. It was by far the best hostel we have stayed in.

That night we decided to go back shopping to the mall where the boys had taken us the day before. I asked for a LCCT map from reception and we made our way to the twin towers. Once there we decided to draw out some extra money from an ATM, as we only had £200 worth of Malaysian Ringgits. The cash machine wouldn't allow us to draw money out, my card had been stopped! Anyway we carried on looking around, Delsha bought a dress from Topshop and I bought a drink from BOOST (they have them in England, I've seen one in the Trafford Center). We watched the fountain display again which was again amazing.

We headed back to our hostel around 11PM and I slept like a baby!
