Kuala Lumpur – Petronas Towers and Valentine’s Day

Day 3 in KL was also Valentine’s Day but as is the case back home, all the restaurants put on a limited set menu at twice the price, so we opted to have our proper meal out the following day.

That day instead we headed for the Petronas Towers, or Twin Towers as they are known.

We wandered into the lobby and discovered that it leads to a big shopping centre so we spent some time wandering and window shopping. We even popped into Harrods

The evening was spent having a romantic Valentine’s meal in the local reggae bar – Mo was chuffed

The following day we took a walk up to another of the 66(!) shopping malls that are in KL, the Times Square Shopping Mall. This one was very impressive inside, they still had the decorations out for Chinese New Year…

…and they also had an indoor theme park!

We had a pretzel lunch at a familiar name…

…she does a mean pretzel!

We then headed up to the KL Tower for a view over the city. It was easy to spot

As part of our entry we got a choice of free activity, Formula 1 simulator, pony ride or another one we can’t remember. I obviously did the F1 simulator (basically 2 laps on a computer game as Mark Webber (I came first!)) and Mo decided on the pony ride

Then it was up the tower for a view over the city.

Back on the ground we started to walk back to the city centre but got caught in another mighty downpour (obviously we had forgotten our umbrella that day) and had to get a taxi instead.

But we made up for it by treating ourselves to these

That evening we had our nice meal out for Valentine’s to a place called Palate Pallate which did some really nice food

The following day we popped into town for lunch before packing up and heading to the bus station for our trip to Melaka.
