one day in kuala lumpur [towering towers]

on our recent trip to bali, we got to spend a one-night layover in kuala lumpur, malaysia. it was a good time of wandering the streets, eating late night street food, riding the sky train, checking out the famous petronas towers, the chinatown market & indulging in a delicious starbucks coffee.

Petronas Towers

the trip was so brief that i can't say i was struck with anything much besides noting how stylish & beautiful the women in head scarves were & how disorienting it is to get on a plane in one very poor asian country, fly for an hour and a half, & then disembark in a different, highly developed & wealthy asian country.
