49 Minutes in Malaysia

An unexpected dash round Kuala Lumpur

After sadly having to say goodbye to Thailand all too soon we were on the plane bound for the Philippines with a 5 hour wait in Kuala Lumpur. Not too bad I thought after my 14 hours in Milan airport, but what a surprise when we got let out of the airport! It was TOTALLY unexpected and bless Lauren, the whole way through no matter how much she tried to say we were being let out I was saying it was impossible. I simply refused to believe it and then BAM, a revolving door and we were on the pavement! Amazing!!

We only had a few hours but despite the airport staff all saying we didn't have enough time to get into the city we were determined to take on the time challenge and get to the Petronas Towers. And we bloody did! It was fairly manic I won't deny that, but after an hour on a bus, working out the subway system in 0.4 seconds flat, running down the street with our mini backpacks, there they were!!

It was SO funny. Everyone was calling after us asking why we were running, we had our hand luggage bags with us, my camera was out ready to snap away, I felt like I was on that tv show where teams of two take challenges in different countries to win prizes, was bloody brilliant!

Anyway, I'm looking forward to one day going to Malaysia properly, but the 49 minutes we had between getting off the bus in town and getting back on it were definitely a lot of fun - more than sitting in the airport for 5 hours that's for sure. The towers were cool and we even got a little photo shoot taken of us by randoms a la India. Fantastic!
