Petronas Towers, Kuala Lumpur
Completed in 1998 and costing $1.9 Billion, enough to make even Dr Evil raise his pinky
left Ko Bulon Leh in Thailand and headed South to Penang Georgetown which is an Island connected by a lage bridge to the mainland with amazing views of the city which reminded me of the large city of Hong Kong which I will hopefully get to see at some future point.
Georgetown is a mix of ghetto streets intermitted with chinese and Indian influenced shops and restaraunts as well as modern Skyscrapers.
Next was Cameron Highlands, a few miles South East with the temperature much cooler than it has been for a while which is refreshing. The place were staying at is called Fathers and looks a little like the mansion from the Resident Evil game and it makes a nice change to speak normally with people my own age rather than speaking to foreigners where you have to make an effort to be understood.
Kuala Lumpur is an excellent city, modern and old, lots of diversity of races and religions which has created a huge atmosphere of tolerance and acceptance were staying at a place near China Town called The Village.
Went up the the fourth highest tower in the world which moves about 5 metres per second to
Arab Bank, Kuala Lumpur
I really liked the architecture of this building
about 250 metres, excellent views of the whole city, stadiums, petronas towers and women in rooftop swimming pools, they even supply the telescopes, very thoughtful the Asians.
Nadia of Nadia & Marco the Italians who im travelling with at the moment has gone down with a case of Dengue fever and I have been making sympathy visits to the hospital here a couple of times (good food & cheap). The driver who was Indian that took us to the Hospital decided he would take that opportune moment to list all his friends and family who have died from Dengue Fever much to my complete amazement.
They tried to find her vein for the IV and ended up stacking it four times which I think freaked her out a bit, the good news is all the service is free and she should be out in three days and I'm happy to wait around for them.
On the day Nadia decided to leave the hospital, the Dr in his vast capitalist wisdom decided it wasnt Dengue fever (which is free) but some unknown virus (which isnt) so they had to pay over 400 ringit which is nothing but as usual its
the principle, plus the nurses fell asleep constantly and seem to groan at the humble request of Paracetemol. Dengue Fever is caused by a virus in the adult female Mosquitoe so you would think they would have Mosquitoe nets over the windows, no such luck and one night they carried a corpse out in front of Nadia in a zipper bag, all we needed was Dr Basil Faulty with a stethoscope.
Then one of our so called friend, decided to do a runner with my guide book and 300 Ringit while simultaneously ripping of the Guesthouse we were staying at so he played us all, and I was ready to beat him like a Ginger Stepchild if I ever see him again.
Going fishing today of all things, looking forward to catching some freak of nature. Gotta catch the monorail to Taman Melati Station.
