After a couple of days with a road to yourself, sharing it with Trucks passing by within half a meter is a bit of a dissapointment.
So we treated ourselves on a day with the train, on a nice line through lush Jungle forrest, beautiful ride and nice little town.
We ate at yet another Chinese Restaurant (the only place in town where the beer flows), and right after dessert the Hygiene Inspection Department raided the place with about 15 people and closed down the joint due to "Poor Hygiene". A Sikh man sitting next to us told us it might as well be due to the fact that they are Chinese......
Anyway next day we wanted to make some speed so got on a local bus to Raub 40 km from Bukit Fraser where we wanted to go.
Turned out that the only road up the mountain was closed and that to get there the only option left was a detour of about 200 km, through Kuala Lumpur (KL). So...too bad for the Hills, we headed straight for the Petronas Towers.
And the view from our Balcony....
KL is great, on top of the common China Town and Little India you've got everything from local-local food to fancy restaurants, mega-shopping, and a laid back park around the towers. Most surprisingly KL has more Starbucks then there are 7-Elevens in Hong Kong...and then you are in for some serious competition.
We took the opportunity to catch up with my sister and family under a glass of German Paulaner, with Pork Knuckles, Schweinbrat etc.... Who would have thought......
A big surprise was the announcement of Bettie that she bought a ticket to KL and would be arriving next day..... I like that kind of planning. Bike is secured, and off we go, me and my 2 women Harem!
