Oct 19, 2004 - Maleisie / Kuala Lumpur

Aangekomen in Kuala Lumpur. Na eerst kamers in verschillende backpackers hostels te hebben bekeken uiteindelijk een goed hotel gevonden. De hostel kamers hadden oa: beschimmelde muren, geen ramen, smerig beddengoed, ranzige gezamelijke douches etc. In Kuala Lumpur is het slecht weer. Vrijwel iedere middag barst er een hoosbui los. In Chinatown hebben we ons redelijk kunnen inhouden qua aankopen. Bier (alchohol) is hier trouwens kostbaar. We drinken dus met mate...

Oct 11, 2004 - Kuala Lumpur

We arrived in Kuala Lumpur at 4 in the morning on Friday and even then it was hot. We checked into a pretty nice Hostel after declining a couple of places that I would have had trouble using as bins let alone rooms to sleep in. One offered us a discount as there was a hole in the window and the bed. How kind. After a bit of a nap we headed off to explore some of the sights of KL which does seem to be a really nice City. However this was short lived and it was back to the hostel where I managed to spend the next few days with the flu (or...

Oct 10, 2004 - Visiting Johno

Last updated 12/10/04... Wednesday night we went for a fantastic meal at a place called M at the Fringe. It's attached to a venue (called the Fringe) that you get access to for the night of your meal. After the food we figured it was worth at least checking to see what was on. Wednesday night was Indonesian Jazz night. No really. Decided against that. Instead we went to the (in)famous Lan Kwai Fong area. It's a sort of rectangle of streets with lots of bars and restaurants. The bars are weird, like a cross between London bars and neony...

Sep 17, 2004 - Kuala Lumpur

Day 1 We arrived at Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) at 13:40, collected our bags and headed off for the express train to KL which is 75KM's away. On arrival in KL we caught a taxi from the Sentral train station to the Golden Triangle in the hope off finding a room at the Attapsani guest house. Unfortunately this place was undergoing rennovation and after looking around a bit found an irish bloke who recommneded somewhere round the corner. We decided to stay in a 6 bed Dorm (we were the only ones there at the time) at the Pujangga...

Aug 26, 2004 - Mooning Over Kuala Lumpur!

Hey Yall... What can I say about Kuala Lumpur when I am still in awe of their magnificent futuristic skyscrapers in the Golden Triangle? Petronas Twin Tower dominated the city and sky as we approached from the airport. Kuala Lumpur's airport is supposedly to be the biggest in the world and I can't confirm that but I can tell you right away that it is definitely one of the most beautiful airports I have ever seen! Spacious and a lot of natural light from huge floor to ceiling glass panes and lots lots of tropical plants! Their speed train to...

Jul 18, 2004 - Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

I'm safely in sweltering Kuala Lumpur. Feels like I never left NYC - smells just like it on a hot, sticky, trash day in the summer. Checked into the Furama Hotel at around 12:30am Sunday (1:30pm Sunday EST) and slept well. I think I've managed to outsmart jet lag by setting my watch to KL time as soon as I left NYC (a little trick every traveller should try). I spent the day exploring the city including a few mosques, tons of small street vendors, the musky old train station, and Merdaka Square. I'll elaborate on all of them at a future...

The Journey

Jul 2, 2004 - Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Hope this entry finds you all well...I know it's been a while since we've added to the website, so now it's catch up time... Oliver and I spent 4 days and 3 nights in Kuala Lumpur (KL) while our friends Chris and Sheila finished their stay in Bali (our 30 day visa expired). KL's airport and city architecture were amazing to say the least. We stayed in a hostel in the center of town and were able to get some much needed "supplies" such as toiletries, etc, that couldn't be found in Indonesia. The thing we noticed immediately though was the...

Mar 30, 2004 - Return to kuala lumpur

Hello all: We are exhausted and need a holiday from our holiday. As mentioned in an earlier e-mail, we are no longer staying in residential areas, we are now in full tourist mode. We have been at this for a month and are very tired. So...we are now in a very comfortable (expensive) hotel with little thought to actually going outside. We ensured that we had a hotel with 24- hour kids TV and we have a computer here in the room. Between these two electronic babysitters and the swimming pool we should all be able to relax. It is a bit hard to...

Dec 17, 2003 - Kuala Kangsar to Kuala Lumpur

Before heading to Kuala Lumpur Aziz and Asiah showed us around Kuala Kangsar. This town is the Capital of the Perak province. We were shown the Royal Mosque, Palace and museum before having a look around the town centre. The trip to Kuala Lumpur was by bus. As you are arriving you can see the Petronas Towers from miles away. On the way in we stopped at the complex where the Commonwealth Games were held in 1998 and saw the tennis and hockey stadiums. From our hotel we can see the towers (just). In the evening we had a meal along the...
