Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia visa trip

Batu Caves. Most visited Hindu Temple outside India.  The largest Lord Murugan Statue in the world.

272 steps and as steep as you can see! We all were determined to make it to the top without stopping! We did it!

A lady at a Butik store on our girls morning out, thought it would be fun to dress up the girls.  Mmm, little sad, and a touch of reality for mum, as Muslim mothers dress thier children like this sometimes

The Batu Caves, once we climbed the steps you walk into this huge cave, and find more stairs

Central Market created in 1888, as a wet market

Monkeys at the Batu Caves temple

Made it to the top and back

fish spar for our girls morning out

The temple at the top of the last set of stairs - amazing


Yepee finally found 7/11 slurpies - we have been hunting them down since we left Australia

What children do when your parents dont pack toys! Find any plastic bag you can find add an elastic bag and slide on the tiles in the hotel room! Lots of fun!

Kuala Lumpur city sight from the top of our hotel building

Spotted a Chinese Buddhist temple

Petronas Towers - largest twin towers in the World.  The middle bridge is not fixed to the two towers as the buildings sway 7 meters so they needed to allow for movement.  Mmmm mum is not going up there!

No food vendors/stalls allowed on footpath. Dont see that everyday!

We got our visa's renewed, and they gave us a years visa with mulitple entry which is unusual, and more than we asked PRAISE GOD! It was nice to experience another Asian City.  We found that KL was not as 'friendly' as Thailand, and the people seemed sad, and appressed.  Reading through their local newspaper also confirmed the sadness that they must feel.  Please pray that the Good News will be heard in this country, and that many will be called to come and spread the Good News.  It is a Muslim Majority Nation, but still is open to other religions, Pray that they hear before it becomes closed to the one true God!
