First Day in Kuala Lumpur

Or second if you count checking it hotel at 2am…. So we haven’t actually left the hotel yet, but the included breakfast was amazing! Way better than the standard breakfasts some hotels have. Six types of juices, a plethora of fruit, potatoes, omelets, pastries, and an array Asian looking breakfast dishes. Sorry no pictures of breakfast, we forgot the camera, plus we were both starving!

So thinking hey it’s a good idea to head back to the hotel and take a quick nap, even setting the alarm to make sure it wouldn’t turn itself into a six hour nap.  Well let’s just say the alarm didn’t work and a good portion of the day vanished into a dreamy haze…

So we rushed down stairs and quick a quick byte to eat, and took a cab to Merdeka Square.  Which was packed, and a big stage was setup with music and dancers through the night. So we listened to the entertainment IMG_6736and enjoyed the heat for about 3 hours.  Also it felt like I was watching the world cup, at least noise wise everyone had noise makes are you can see in the picture. We even had our own contraptions but nowhere near as loud as the locals.

The fireworks were fantastic, and if you thought the sound would make you deaf before, let’s just say it was MUCH louder. New years in Kuala Lumpur was a lot of fun, and there were plenty of different places to go, the city was covered in people, during the days there were a lot of people but at midnight it was like an anthill.
