Base Jumping KL Menara Tower

Base jumping Kuala Lumpur Tower
Went for some food to the Petronas Towers (Chinese Dish) cost us all of 13RM ca.3,30€ and on the way back Fiona saw the base jumpers. We wanted to see them anyway, but there was nothing doing when we were waiting for them, so luckily we managed to take some snaps after all. I am hoping to get some more, but can not promise. Check out ``Photos`` for all the pics and ``Videos`` for some good Vids of the Base Jumpers on youtube which I filmed. On the photo section I added one lot just for pics of Malayian food which might interest some people (more to be added soon)

KL Tower & Petronas Twin Towers

Petronas Towers are now the highest in the World
Today was another hard day for us travellers ( not really) We went for a usual Indian breakfast ca. 1,50€ each and then went on to walk firstly to the Menara Tower of KL, the 6th highest in the world. Included in the price was a ticket to the mini zoo ( when I asked the guy whether that was situated in the tower he creased up, well I didn`t know) We were lucky with the view and took some nice shots. Tomorrow are international base jumpers at the tower and I hope to take some good photos. We then went on to see the famous Petronas Twin Towers, now the highest in the world, but unfortunately the Sky-Bridge is closed until December for renovation. So what??? We can always return next year hehe. The shopping mall was unbelievable; the size, the shops, the people, and it was only when we went in the book shop that we discovered a lovely Park behind the towers where local kids had a great time in a kiddies pool and we had a chance to cool our legs. It was funny when about 6 girls moved closer to us and one of them asked if they could take a photo, all of us together. I suppose they had never really had a chance to see Europeans so close, so we were the attraction.
Take a look at the photos and spot some of the reflections (not sorted yet) and if you have any questions, feel free to contact us.

KL Bird & Butterfly Parks

Biggest bird spider, is found in Malaysia
OMG big spider in the Bathroom, ahhhh....thank god not!!
Only joking :) Found it on our trip behind glas, fixed with two pins. (Spider on a spit) hehe Trip? What trip? Read below:
Today we went to two Parks recommended to us, which were nice to see. From our Hotel we went by Taxi, cost 10RM (RM=Malaysian Ringit), ca 2,50€ as we did not know how far away they were. To go by Taxi you have to look out which ones are running a  Taximeter, as only then do you pay the right price. We had offers from 15RM to 20RM and as mentioned ended up with 10RM. The Parks are situated near the lake gardens and are very sub-tropical and the weather played with it. 31° C and a humidity of at least 85%, to say the least: Ìt was warm` Well the gardens were nice and I added some photos (not sorted yet) if you are interested. We then decided to walk back from the gardens and came past the National Mosque, which we intend to visit some time.

Arrived in Kuala Lumpur

After two years of planning and organising we are finally in KL !

We have finally arrived in Kuala Lumpur Malaysia after a 13h non stop flight from London. We had booked  ``Hot Seats`` for extra leg room and it was well worth it. Time went by surprisingly quick, but sleeping in those narrow seats was near impossible, so we arrived quite tired. Finding our way to the hotel was ok and once checked in, we went out straight away to see a little of KL, what a difference to Europe. We had our first curry and believe me, it was fantastic. The warmth and the humidity came as a bit of a shock, but after the first day already, we love it: shorts, t-shirts and flip-flops. So far so good, I shall keep you updated how we are  getting on.
You can see more photos here.
