Arrive in Kuala Lumpur
Nige & June arrive in Kuala Lumpur. It was an early flight from Perth departing at 6:40 am.
The flight was delayed for one hour due to airport congestion which is to be expected for a busy airport like Perth.
They arrived at about 12:45pm and were impressed by the size of the new terminal.
The plan was for Nige to change his 25 year old travel cheques at the airport and they would use that money for their time in Kuala Lumpur. Unfortunately none of the banks would accept his $US travel cheques so they had to resort to their Australian dollars. They did not realise at the time but this would be a good thing. Read the arrive in Japan episode.
Kuala Lumpur airport is about 65 kms from the city centre and takes just over one hour.
They were staying at the Metro hotel and were pleasantly surprised to get an upgrade to a family room.
After Nigel did his customarily room tour vlog, they headed over to Lot 10 the food court for they had not eaten much during the day.
At Lot 10 Nige prepped the vlog and while walking around the food court they were stopped by security and told to turn the video phone off. After that several security guards which Nige & June while the were in the food court. Nige & June had some roasted pork & duck with rice then moved on to Jalan Alor.
Jalan Alor is a night market and starts to wake up from 6pm onwards but some of the stalls are open earlier.
Nige & June found a place to have some dim sum, and then headed over to a yakitori stand for some yakitori’s and beer.
They then started to fade and called it quits and headed back to the hotel for an early night.
