Dinner At 282m

Our time in Penang was over and it was time for us to make our way back to KL. Brendan couldn't let us leave on an empty stomach and so took us out to eat some seafood noodles (these do have a Malaysian name but I can't say it never mind spell it) at a tiny cafe which is famous throughout the whole of Malaysia. They were fantastic.

The drive home took up most of the rest of the day and a visit to the suit lady to have a final look at my suit before she finished it meant it was nearly dinnertime before I knew it.

Dinner this evening was at the KL Tower restaurant. It is quite a posh restaurant that does a variety of Western and Local food, but in comparison to the food you get on the streets it is nothing to write home about. The main attraction is that fact that you eat dinner 282 metres above ground in a room with a revolving floor so you can see out across the whole city as you eat. It rotates 360 degrees in about an hour so you get to see everything in the time it takes to have dinner. The view is absolutely amazing and it is worth paying English prices even for lower quality food.

After dinner we met up with Calvin, one of Doug's old friends, and went out for a couple of drinks at Spicy Kitchen. Doug is very amused that I am now better known there than he is after my attempts at speaking Malay and get welcomed by all the staff on arrival. I'm still convinced that most of them are having a joke at my expense but as long as the mango shakes are flowing I'm not really too bothered.
