Returned to my original guesthous, and to be greeted by one thing the Malay's love doing - the Chinese style clearing of the throat - I heard plenty enough of that when I visited China, but its made its way to Malaysia - lovely sound!
Decided to go to Bangsor Baru - the entertainment district of KL. Hop onto the ultra modern LRT (elevated railway) to Bangsor (why dont we have them at home?), and then wander round lost trying to find the place for two hours
4 parallel streets of bars, shops, restaurants, market stalls etc, which looked completely out of place in Malaysia - as did the prices in the bars.

Couldnt be bothered to get up in time to queue for the tickets to the Petronas Towers, but went there anyway to have a look. Inevitable shopping mall underneath, and very impressive to look at the towers.
I have slightly overspent in Malaysia - it is more expensive at times than the previous countries, though at times cheaper. I did of course contemplate my overspending whilst sat in the sunshine, in a restaurant at the base of the towers, sipping a glass of white wine and eating a steak sandwich.
