greeting from kuala lumpur - once again! it's been almost 2 years to the day since i arrived for my first trip to kaula lumpur back in 2011 (18 sept). if i hadn't had to cancel the trip last year because of the lightning strike... this would my third time in kuala lumpur for the budget, finance & management course. be that as it may, the trip to southeast asia never gets old!
its a long haul - i logged 19 hours on the two flights to get here - but well worth it. i checked into my hotel earlier this afternoon and spent a few hours walking around the city to deal with of a couple of chores... primarily convert cash into local dollars and grab a few groceries (in context, a 1.5 liter bottle of evian and 660 ml bottle of tiger :D). walking through a warren o crowded streets reminded so much of neighboring bangkok!
last time here we took a group tour to the batu caves - but i never found the time to check out the view from the petronas twin towers - a view of which from my hotel window above. this time around i'd like to get in that bird's eye view of the city - or, in the alternative, the views from kl's space needle!
stay tuned :D
