Kuala Lumpar 2016 LIVE - All By Myself: Day 2 - Still Travelling


A picture light day as I seem to have spent most of it in s tin can

Boarding went as expected - the flight was full. We took off at about 2.15am. Even though it was the middle of the night they served the meal. I had a really yummy noodle stir fry. Unfortunately I forgot to take photos. The only thing wrong with it was there could have been more.

I managed to nod off on and off - probably got about 5 hours of sleep.



I watched "Lady in a van" which was ok. Breakfast was a rice and felafel thing - again very eatable.

I can't criticise Turkish Airlines. They were like the airlines of 10 years ago - free seat booking, proper meals and an amenity kit.

This was my first view of Malaysia. We landed on time, immigration was quick, my bag came eventually and I was in a taxi less than an hour after landing. The taxi was a fixed cost of 75RM - about 19 euros.



Check in was quick. Breakfast sounds strange - effectively curry bought to your room We will see.

The room is small (literally the bed), has no drawers but is clean and has a bathroom. For 30 euros a night it is great.



It was now about 8pm - 7h ahead of the UK (8h tomorrow! ). I decided to head to the nearby mall - Berjaya Times Square to find somewhere yo eat that wasn't out of my comfort zone.

There were lots of options so I chose one that seemed busy.

I has a cold green tea.



With veggie udon noodles (it was a Korean restaurant)



With gimbap - they said it wasn't sushi but it was close



And the accompaniments. The middle one was delicious. In fact the whole meal was.

It cost 22RM - 4.50 euros. I am pushing the boat out.



Feeling tired after a long 2 days (plus I haven't slept well for the few nights before) so have decided to hit my bed (well nowhere else to sit anyway! )

There has been a firework display - it us a holiday today so I am not sure if they are connected.

It is now 10pm. I think I will surf a little and hope to get to sleep about 11.

Thanks for reading - hopefully more interesting day tomorrow.

Flying solo is easy as you don't have to keep anyone occupied

The food so far has been delicious! And cheap!
