Kuala Lumpur

Another weekend = another destination. This time, Kuala Lumpur. Accompanied by six other students, of course representing six different countries (Japan, Russia, Spain, Portugal, Holland, France). My new Russian friend Nadia found us a screaming deal at the Ritz Carlton (who says students can't stay in style!). This was a valuable lesson - hotel rack rates are for chumps - at least in SE asia.
We made the rounds to the usual tourist sites - china town, little india, the Bahtu Caves, the Petronas towers, etc - but the highlight had to be a street market called 'tasty corner'. Filled with outdoor restaurants, this place serves everything the ocean has to offer - and a few things from the mainland as well. Our feature dish? Frogs! My Spanish friend, Bosco, really enjoyed playing god.

That was the first (and probably the last) time that I need to watch my dinner die.
