[How this works is. each week. I will write to someone on my list, picked randomly and I will post it online on this blog – just in case the letter doesn’t reach its destination. The letter includes a card with a random quote, which I hope you will enjoy (at the top of this blog page).]
This week’s quote really reflects my life at this time.
John and I are continuing our explorations of Malaysia. We’ve had some incredible experiences since arriving – things you just can’t plan.
We love Malaysia, the food is great, the people are friendly and there are lots of interesting cultures all mixed together to make up the modern-day Malaysia.
We started this week in Kuala Lumpur (KL). We’ve fallen in love with the city and its delights, so we are extending our stay.
So far, we’ve tasted excellent food from all over the world, gone to an historical musical show – MUD,
been to the beautiful Batu Caves/Temples with the monkeys (more photos at end),
went to a Japanese magic show
and went to the Islamic Arts Museum.
Then we skirted off for a few days to Melaka – an old coastal town – over 700 years old.
Our hotel happened to be celebrating its first year anniversary and we were kindly included in the celebrations.
To get a very good feel for Malaysia’s multi-cultural history, Melaka is a great place to be, as it’s been occupied by the Dutch, Portuguese, Japanese, British and Chinese. So it’s seen in the food and architecture. It was once known as the Venice of the East
and is now a UNESCO world heritage site. We’ve seen many of the old sites and joined in on one of the river boat tours.
Love & hugs! Debx
