i arrived in kuala lumpur sunday afternoon - my third time here in the last 4 years. it's a long trip - 15 hours to hong kong from jfk, then another 4 hours on the 2nd leg on to kuala lumpur. no matter how many trips i take to southeast asia, the long hours traveling never get easier. although getting from the airport to my hotel went much smoother this year. the only twist was the arrival weather - sunny at the airport and 40 minutes later, just outside the city, the skies darkened and it began to pour!
in a break from my normal routine (spending a few hours walking around the city), after i checked in a barely unpacked before i fell asleep and took what amounted to a 5 hour nap! i needed to catch up on my sleep after being on the road for 24+ hours - and because it was raining outside, sleep was the perfect solution :D
not sure how much "sightseeing" i'll get in this trip - but stay tuned. looking forward to visiting taps beer bar again, finally getting over to the whiskey bar - and, hopefully, another fantastic dining experience at the frog porridge stall on jalan alor!
