Arrival in KL

Today we finally arrived in Kuala Lumpur tired and exhausted from our 30 hours of traveling! We needed our Canadain passports to enter into Malaysia and they needed to be valid for 6 months after our planned date of exit, which had to be no longer than 3 months becuase we didn't bother to get visa's to stay longer than that. To enter into Malaysia we needed our proof of exit out of the country as well as proof of adequate funds for our stay, but that was no problem becuase we definatly had more than enough Malyasian Rigggits (MYR) to travel lavishly for at least 6 months!
We were so tired when we arrived so we hired a rickshaw to get to the Red Dragon Hostel,which is based in an old cinema, located in Chinatown. Before we went to bed we tested out 1 of the essentail local dishes called Hainanese chicken rice, which is fragrantly poached chicken served with chicken flavoured rice, a clear soup and a chilli and ginger sambal(relish) it was delicious, a defiate must have by all. We also had a glass of Tuak which is rice wine, a tribal specialty!
