| Then we ascended the KL tower (remember KL means Kuala Lumpur), a
421-meter tower atop a 90-meter hill (total height 1676 feet...almost
200 feet higher than the Petronas...the world's tallest buildings). Reminiscent of Seattle's Space Needle,
it's the largest such tower in Asia and the fourth largest in the world.
We were only at the 905 foot bottom observation level (1201 feet if you
count the hill).(Click HERE for high-resolution photo).|
Prices in Kuala Lumpur were very low. Below you see the Petronas and how close our luxury hotel was (see arrow). We stayed on the 18th floor, with room service, a gorgeous
bathroom, marble bathtub, gorgeous view, and it was only $50 a night. The toilet even had a telephone! My motel in
Newark, New Jersey was in slum-world and cost me $69 a night, so this
was a steal! Here's a pic of Angie's old school. Yes Mom, she went to a Catholic
school! (Mom leaps about the house in joyous celebration looking for her

Then we got massages by blind people (seriously... they were blind...it's
a novelty I guess) but not before coming down from the KL tower using an
elevator...I guess if it's going down it's a delevator. Angie took my
glasses during the massage so that made three of us blind and she was
the only one who could see. Scary...|
I guess it's better to be massaged by blind people than stared at by amputees eh? In case you're wondering, Angie told me that Kuala Lumpur was founded at the meeting point of the Kelang and Gombak rivers and the name Kuala Lumpur means - 'Muddy Confluence'.
And below we see Angie, still patiently waiting for me ("where the hell is that hitman???").
