Kuala Lumpur

I spent a fair amount of time in Kuala Lumpur and seemed to only scratch the surface. With the Ler family living less than an hour away from the city, we ended up there several times. Most of our time in K.L. was spent shopping as we had a jam packed schedule of sight seeing the rest of the week. ​ I may not be a city slicker but overall I could get in to K.L. I had more fun people watching than anything! It almost seemed more diverse than New York City! The city has some great shopping. From high end designers to kitschy tourist stops and everything in between. Here are my favorite activities from the trip:

Blue Mosque Tour in Shah Alam

One of the more eye opening things I did in Malaysia was touring the Blue Mosque (Sultan Salahuddin Abdul Aziz) in Shah Alam. Selangor's state mosque is a stunning structure with Malay and modern influences. After attending a small Methodist church for my entire life, I felt like I had been embossed in an entirely different realm. I was blown away by the architecture of the building.
