Surprisingly, we ended up staying in Kuala Lumpur for 6 nights. The only place we stayed longer than there so far was Hanoi. Susie seemed quite excited by the place when she was looking up things to do here, but we ended up doing very little. After we did the shower thing on the first day in KL, we went off for a look at some bits near us for some food. The hotel was a five minute walk from Berjaya Times Square, which is a big old shopping mall, so we got some food there, then ...

The fort, A'Formosa (St John's HIll), changed hands again when the British took over during the Napoleonic times. The British were to be caretakers of Malaca until the Dutch were able to fully resume control. But, the fort ...
A short taxi ride took us to the bus terminal where all the Malaysia bound coaches depart from. After a four hour journey through the Malaysian countryside (lots of farmed palm oil trees) we arrive at Malaka Sentral (The Malaysian's don't seem to like Cs!). The first thing of note was a huge Tesco, apparently the largest in Malaysia. We didn't have the pleasure of shopping there as our lodgings were in the old ...
