Oh Kuala Lumpur, what a great stop! This has been a much needed little break from the last two months of travel chaos in India and Nepal. We arrived at 4 am off the plane from Kathmandu, into literally a wall of heat and humidity as Kuala Lumpur is going through a terrible heat wave the couple days we are here. Temps reached over 35 C and 95 F with over 80% humidity yesterday. It's hot! But of course, we had booked this great hotel, Hotel WP, with a rooftop pool and AC and it's been a dream!
Our friends Sebastian and Aurelie booked last minute tickets to Kuala Lumpur from Kathmandu as well and we enjoyed a cold drink at there posh hotel overlooking the Petronas Towers. We only had 2 days here and are catching a plane in a couple hours to Yangon, Myanmar. But we have walked a lot (there are real sidewalks here!!), clean garbage free streets, lots of giant malls with everything you could possibly imagine and more, bazaars, towers, and we even had a date night at one of the cinemas in a mall nearby to see Zoolander 2 topped off with bowls of Baskin Robins Ice Cream! And the food!! A mix between Thai, Indian, Indonesian, and more has been just fireworks for the palate. Malaysia has been a bit more expensive than the countries we have been traveling in, but still my favorite meal cost us about $8 for the both of us to be stuffed. We feel like a bunch of spoiled princesses. (See below for Ville's aka Fabio's princess modeling shoot)
