experiences - more of malaysia

We've been working on "Recounts" in English here. And although our trip to the Far East was a whole. year. ago. I've asked the kids to recount it using their newly learnt skills. I think it's about time I finished off some of my draft posts and shared some more of my pics.

Here are some more of our experiences:

Changi Airport, Singapore
Probably the nicest airport I've ever seen. Ever. It's aesthetically pleasing to the eye, but most importantly, has excellent services (including rest areas and free foot massage machines).


Sentosa
Like most amusement parks but with some slightly unusual rides like the Segway and the Luge (we loved that one). I thought it was pricier than other places. It did have prayer facilities, which was great!

Orchard Street
Famous for its malls! Plenty of shopping opportunities there!

Genting Highlands, Malaysia
Up in the clouds, sits another amusement park. Pretty usual stuff, but lovely accommodation and an unusual setting. You can take the cable car down too!




Bukit Bintang 
An area full of malls, back street hawker food, fruit and juice stalls and Arabs! There are lots of spa and massage opportunities too.

The Islamic Arts Museum




Central Market
All sorts of traditional items can be found here AND the infamous fish treatment, which was great ma sha Allah!

The Night Market - Jalan Tuanku AbdurRahman
It gets busy, but it's great on the pocket!

KL Bird Park 
A firm favourite!



Templar Park Falls
This was by far my best experience. The beautiful surroundings were just amazing and climbing in to it all was wonderful! There were little pools of water where people were swimming too.


Thermal Springs


Putrajaya
A beautiful city full of government buildings.




Beryl's Chocolate Factory
We were expecting more from this and could easily have given it a miss. It's more like a big chocolate shop, where you can taste a little of the chocolate and feel under pressure to buy something!

KL Zoo
Who doesn't love a big zoo?

We experienced lots of different sights and sounds, but we also experienced new flavours!


Tastes:
ABC - Air Batu Champu - Like an ice cream sundae with kidney beans and sweetcorn!


mee goreng 
nasi lemak
Morrie Brown - Fast food Malaysian style!
fried snacks on the street
satay
roti canai

Delicious fruit juices and drinks:
cucumber juice - new for me
green apple - the best
pineapple - refreshing

Delicious new fruits:
dragon fruit
mangosteen - This was my favourite. I thought it was like a citrus lychee!
rambutan - Tried before, but always good.
durian - Strange, almost oniony smelling fruit. If you can stomach that, it might be ok.

Ma sha Allah it was such a wonderful experience! Have you been? Would you like to? Have you tried any Malaysian delights?

* I'm joining in with Blogtoberfest this month and trying to blog everyday for the rest of this month!

Wow - what a fabulous place! The ABC looks good, but sweetcorn and kidney beans? Sounds odd, but I imagine it was delicious.
