KL Day Two

January 18, 2010

Tune Hotel, Kuala LumpurThis is our hotel. Brief hotel review: delivers on what they promise – good bed and good shower. Inexpensive, comfortable, clean and safe. What more do I need?
We walked through an area with textile and clothing stores to get to China Town. I’ve never seen so many hijabs.
large billboard with muslim modelsYou know your in a Muslim country when the giant fashion models wear hijabs.
row of parked motorcyclesAnd again, we saw lots of motorcycles.
skyscrapers and old row housesContrast of old and new.
Jamek mosqueJamek mosque (Masjid Jamek) the city’s oldest mosque.

Sorry, I forgot to take picture of lunch. I had Cantonese noodle soup (yummy and not spicy) and Daddybird had some sort of chicken, rice and vegetables. Very good and inexpensive. Mine was 5.90 ringgits which is about $1.60. I’ve come to the conclusion that it is the plane fare that makes travel expensive. It is certainly not the food!

We didn’t come here to shop, but have done a fair share of it. We’ve purchased souvenirs for family and friends and today we bought a few clothing items for ourselves. Finding our size is a major challenge. Before we leave, I intend to go back to the textile stores to buy some material for sewing to solve that problem.

No idea what tomorrow will bring.
