The people of Kuala Lumpur, that is. We bid a reluctant farewell to Singapore this morning and boarded a coach for the long ride to Kuala Lumpur, the capital of Malaysia. KL is a bit grittier than Singapore, but the people are friendly and we are looking forward to the next stage of our adventure.
Roti Boy! One of the first things we do when we get to Kuala Lumpur, is get some Roti Boys. Roti Boys are soft, light pastries that our students quickly become addicted to. We had a minor panic when our traditional Roti Boy stall was closed. We were ready to write off Malaysia as a lost cause, but luckily we found that it had moved across the street and after some adventurous jaywalking, were able to secure the goods. Roti Boy stock will see a sharp increase after this week.
In a clever ploy to remain in Singapore a few extra hours, Jonathan pretended to lose his passport for a few hours. He caught a later bus.
In the evening we visited the famous Central Market of KL, where we partook of one of my favorite activities: Fishy feet cleaning!! For a few dollars you can get the dead skin cleaned off your feet by hundreds of small fish. Who wouldn’t want that? Having seen some of these feet, my sympathies are with the fish.
Durian Kafe. Truth is stranger than fiction.
That’s it for today. Tomorrow we visit the Batu Caves. Check back then.
