The monorail rail, at KL

Well it all begins with, you guessed it, a delay lol. Just had a text message from Air Asia saying that instead of flying on the 15th at 01:35, they have delayed the flight until the 15th 11:30.... sigh... Nevermind, I got to stay in the hotel overnight and get some sleep!

We flew from Stansted about 11.30am and after 13 hours of flying through day and night, arrived here at 8.30am Malysian Time. Getting off the plane was a joyous occasion, managed to unfold my legs, breathe and stretch!

I caught the bus (8 RGT) from LCCT to Sentral Station, then crossed road to get the monorail to Imbi Station (1.20 RGT). Had to walk through Times Square shopping mall (it's huge, 11 floors and a giant indoor theme park!) to my hostel 'Equator Hostel', where I recieved a warm greeting from Anna.

Was chuffed to find out the dorms are lovely, clean rooms, towel and sheets provided, free tea and coffee all day, and breakfast included from 7am-10am every morning. It's a really nice place to stay, and very reasonable, with security lockers and keys for all doors... lovely!

Spent the day exploring, dizzy from the flight and lack of sleep but found enough energy to visit China Town, Little India and saw the Petronas Towers and Sky Tower thingy. Walked back to the hostel after stopping by the Blue Blue Boy Vegeterian food center for some food, and some Kopi Ais (Iced coffe) - Yummy!

Back to hostel to get some decent sleep tonight before going to Batu Caves tomorrow, Ruby and Jeff should be here tomorrow!
