Back to Kuala Lumpur for a night!  I wasn't expecting much here, maybe just go to the Chinese market, take a few photos of the twin towers, then get an early night.  Obviously it didn't work out that way.

I got talking to an Australian girl in the hostel called Sandy, then English guy called Sam joined our conversation.  Then Sam's friend he was travelling with, Adam, then another English guy staying in their room, Adil, then a Swedish girl, Jasmin, and then an Irish guy called Christian. 

So long story short we ended up going to a bar on the 32nd floor of a hotel facing the Patronus Towers.  It's the kind of bar where you realise that the rich and famous live a life you fucking well don't.  The kind of place where a beer costs a tenner, where the waiters don't bother giving you your change unless you specifically ask for it, and where they have a swimming pool in the middle of the room.  Yes, a swimming pool.

I had one drink (thats all I could afford) and we took photos of the stunning view while we had the chance.  The lights of the Towers went out at 11pm, much to the annoyance of Adam who never bothered getting the shot when he first arrived.  Then we walked around KL for about an hour trying to find another bar we'd heard about which was on the roof of another building, but by the time we found it, it had closed.  Who would've thought you couldn't buy alcohol at 2am in a muslim country?
