Well, I made it to Malaysia, and its beautiful. I have been here before, but mainly for a shopping trip, this time I hope to see more of this country. I have treated myself to a hotel for this part of the journey, I don't think I could deal with just being thrown in at the deep end of the travellers life just yet.
I am staying at the Concord hotel in the heart of KL, from my room you can see the KL Tower, well the bottom half-that's how close I am.
From the pool area you can see both the KL Tower and the twin towers(KLCC).
For the last two days I have managed to do a lot of shopping, but only the stuff I was planning on buying while i was here, Camera, memory cards, glasses and contact lens oh and i have my hair cut!.
I have been very good with the shopping, this place is a shoppers paradise. I could spend a fortune here-but i haven't honest not even one pair of shoes!!
I'm off to Petaling Street tonight, It's a big night market where most of the goods are imitations - good ones and very cheap. Haggling is the name of the game down there- I love it.
Tomorrow I leave for Penang, its on the coast and only a short plane ride away, I've booked into a hotel there again, I've stayed there before and it was lovely.
this bit of my trip is my holiday so that I can chill out and de stress. The run up to this trip has been very stressfully and has taken a lot out of me so i'm hoping these 10 days will help me recharge my batteries and get me in the right frame of mind to continue on my way.
Keep reading to my next instalment- hopefully with pics-if i can work out how to put them on-DOH!!
