currently: kinda itchy.
I decided to eat in the end. Feeling in a horrible state with my headache and the heat, I went out and had an ice milo and ate dosa. Which made things a little better.
That's really one of the biggest differences between Malaysia vs New Zealand - the feeling you can eat at any time, any moment, and you can get food pretty much on every street. Also it's cheap.
It's only been three years since I was last here in this country, and I'm beginning to remember certain buildings and little quirks about being here. But of course, there's still plenty of new things to take in.
Familiar: eating curry laksa for breakfast.
If you hate cooking, this city can pretty much do it for you. Most food is so cheap here and so accessible, don't bother getting out your pots and pans. Just grab some noodles from a local street vendor, and why not some char siu baos while you're at it. The char siu bao guy is right next to him.
Familiar: seeing a thunderstorm every day.
In one moment it's sunny, and then 15 minutes later, the roads have surface flooding. Every time you put on a pair of shoes, you always need to consider the possibility of rain. The last trip I was here, I impulse bought an ugly pair of shoes because the ones I had been wearing were soaked. In New Zealand, I haven't worn those shoes since.
Unfamiliar: Seeing brand new buildings all over the place.
Unfamiliar: seeing so many gyms.
I know KL always had gyms, but I've never seen so many massive gyms franchises sprout in this area before. It's like the New Zealand equivalent of FroYo shops - which in KL, I've yet to see one of those.
Kuala Lumpur is such a dynamic city - a place that's constantly changing, and yet still exactly the same.
Meal of the day:
