The time zone meant it was now early Sunday morning when we arrived in Kuala Lumpur, so 3 hours sleep was no excuse for a nap, it was time to explore.
We hopped on the local tube and headed into town.
Fed and watered we then continued our amble to Petaling street in Chinatown, which is known for its knock-off fakes. It had a great buzz and was lively & colourful. Unfortunately even the most charming Malaysians, with their cries of, “oh hey pretty, byoooootiful ladies, you waaan baag?!” couldn’t win us over.
That was about all we could manage on 3 hours sleep so we headed back to our hotel for a nap. This gave us a second wind so it was time to start thinking about our bellies again. Nom nom nom.
We went to Changkat Bukit Bintang which was absolutely awesome! It’s much like Koh San Road in Bangkok, or Leicester Square with food!
We found a table at Dragon View and I cannot recommend this place enough. We were placed at a big table for just the four of us, which was mighty-lucky given that we proceeded to order enough food for 10 – the flavours were all so delicious!
We ended the evening by meeting up with Barkie and his friend who were conveniently also in town on business. We chose frozen martini’s to wash our huge dinner down, and then hit the dance floor. Tourists 1, jet lag 0.
