Shopping malls and a bad driver

The skyline of Kuala Lumpur at night

So, we have arrived in Kuala Lumpur and we are totally in love! Sure, we fall in love with most of the destinations that we visit but there’s something special about Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. We will be in Malaysia for two months and the only thing on our agenda is Kuala Lumpur and Penang. Oh, how we long to explore these amazing places!

Shopping, shopping, shopping

First impression… Kuala Lumpur is all about shopping. Since living in a motorhome doesn’t allow too much splurging, shopping is not a huge deal for us. However, being among shopping malls made me think. It’s time for me to redo my wardrobe. I’m always in a black tank top (I have several of the same models).

It’s time to switch to something else. So, I have told myself that I will go shopping in some of the malls here. Mini is in desperate need of new t-shirts so that is also on the agenda. Yes, we have gotten the shopping bug while being here. So far, we have bought a new companion for our home. It’s a Malaysian statue of happiness and our stands for happiness and luck.

Getting splashed by a taxi cab

There’s only one thing (so far) that we didn’t like about Kuala Lumpur. One taxi driver (here they are called Teksi). We were walking to Chinatown and for the first time, I had a white tank top on and Mini had a white t-shirt. Out of nowhere, a taxi cab from the company Genting taxi Puduraya comes at full speed. When he passes us, he drives into a muddy puddle and splashes us like there’s no tomorrow.

And then he takes off! In Sweden, you will lose your license for doing that. If he would’ve stopped and apologized, it would’ve been fine but to just take off – that pissed us off! I was soaked and my top got dirty from all the muddy water. Mini also got splashed, but he was walking alongside me, so I got the worst of the water. So, that’s it for you! Note to self: There’s one taxi driver in Kuala Lumpur that doesn’t like us!
