Hanging Out With The Lovely Girls

After having the odd breakfast of chocolate milk and some very hot and spicy Malay dinner, we were finally on the ground and on our way to the city centre.
The bus from the airport is very easy to get and fairly quick. It drops you off directly opposite the monorail station and below the train station. We opted to get a taxi seeing as we had just travelled been travelling around about 24 hours at this stage.
The taxi driver thought I was an expat because of the directions I gave him. Our hostel was down by Bukit Bintang, near the McDonalds and below the Sony Ericsson sign. The problem was that even though our driver knew of the billboard, nobody could have prepared us for the fact that I suspect that it is above a brothel, sorry, a massage parlour.
When we got to the hostel, we cheecked in, bought some beers and thought we would try out the roof top terrace. Up there we quickly realised there was not so much of a view beyond the neighbouring buildings and the big billboard. Thankfully there were people up there to enjoy our drinks with.
As it turned out, we had travelled all this way from home and now find ourselves sitting down to a few beers with two Irish girls we just met. So already off to a good start at doing things different to back home eh?
The girls actually only live and work around the corner from us. It truly is a small world after all. We ended up heading around looking for some good bars for awhile and ended up sitting down to a bottle of Jameson and a bottle of Sprite in some random bar. Things begin to get a little hazy from this point on but if memory serves me right there was a lesbian bar, beers & crisps, spoons, tea bags and something to do with cornetto ice-cream...
