Malaysia

I can't believe how fast time flies it only seems like yesterday that I was in Malaysia but it was last month.  I have been sorting through my photos. I really should get around to doing a scrapbook on my holiday, you never know I might even be successful in actually finishing, hang on a minute, I actually have to start don't I, yep, get it in the right order Eliza.  Helps if I talk to myself and sort things out, no I am not mad it is the inner me keeping me in line.

So arrived in Kuala Lampur and this was the sights from the hotel.



These tall buildings are lighting up the night sky and you could see them from the plane as I was flying into Malaysia and the airport was about 90 minutes away from where I was staying.  The name of these buildings is the Patronas Twin Towers. 

The twin towers were built in 1996 and is 88 storeys tall at a height of 452 meters above the street level.  These twin towers are currently the tallest twin towers in the world.  Quite a significant landmark.
After a few days I actually went to the towers for business and was surprised to find the most amazing shopping centre inside Tower 2.   Tower 1 was for business only and had security on the ground floor with machine guns, unless you had an appointment and could prove it you couldn't get inside, there was no way in hell of even getting a photo of the security..... LOL





Some amazing art sculpture at the main entrance to the towers.



This is a bridge joining the towers together, doesn't look strong enough to hold them together,
people walk across this bridge all the time.  Not me, no way in hell.......


This is inside Tower 2 where the shops are and this is the lift to the different levels, the lift had a
weight limit and if it was over weight the doors would sound off a warning and people would
push others off, so they could keep the lift moving.  So funny, a lady with a pram and children
was pushed off by the people and she nearly left one of the children behind.




Some of the architecture in this building is amazing, I had to be careful of what photos I took
because security was everywhere and well they didn't want any photos taken, not really
sure why.




This is just a few levels of the shopping centre.



Off of every section is a corridor full of shops and more shops, cinemas, food courts and well you
 name it, it is in this place.  I was just in awe of the size.



I took this photo for my daughter Myrene as she just loves Sushi Go Round and here it was going round and round.  Literally the Sushi and other dishes of delight are placed on the continuous travelling carousel and you just take what you want from it and you get billed for it.  It is so much fun.  We have a few places in Melbourne Australia that do this but that is a hike into the city and quite pricey. 

Until later when I update with more Malaysia photos.

Thanks for looking and please leave a comment.

Thanks for stopping by my blog! I wish it were Edward too but then I'd be stuck on January. ;)

June is Jasper with that weird look so I've been waiting to change it. Or maybe I should turn it back to January.

wow, kinda scary to be in a place where they have machine guns guarding it, it makes me feel lucky to be in the USA, where we don't get pushed off elevators either! Sometimes I don't appreciate where I live as much as I do at this momment! waving hi from the hills of North Carolina :)
