Made it to Malaysia! After an early morning flight, I was awoken by the sudden drop against the airport’s runway. First impressions of Kuala Lumpur, it has a sort of New York vibe with so many cultural influences. There is random architecture that is unlike anything I’ve seen anywhere else in the world. KL is known for its cultural diversity with influences mainly from India, China, and Malay. They even have a fair share of Filipinos that live here!
The public transportation system is very clean, fast and easy to navigate. Not to mention, very cheap. In no time, I was in the city center and found myself wandering the streets in search of my hotel. A feeling I have come to dread in my travel. Not because of the unfamiliar environment, but mostly because of the fifty pounds that I have strapped to myself in the Asia heat and humidity. Wifi has also been less than par at the hotel, even now as I write out this entire blog post on Microsoft Word, in hopes of finding a connection later.
KL has actually really impressed me so far. Tomorrow should be a fun, adventure-packed day. I have lots to accomplish in my short time here, as my next flight is in two days.
