A quick glimpse into Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
The capital of Malaysia is Kuala Lumpur.
“oh yeah… I knew that.” I’m pretty sure the only thing I know of about Malaysia is that Zoolander

Walking around KL
Teryn was pretty sick for most of all our stay in Malaysia and we stayed at one of the worst places we have encountered. I’m talking about this room was smaller than a prison cell. (not that I know from experience) No windows and barely enough room to stand up. Just a room with a bunk bed, feeling a little bit claustrophobic, I decided to let Teryn get some rest and I grabbed my camera and took a casual stroll around the city. The main benefit of our prison cell. I mean hostel, it was located right next to china town, a huge market of all of the knock off brands and local goods. It also wasn’t far from the street food vendors.
We both had been told over and over again about how great the food was in Malaysia and since we were still recovering from our “Bali Belly” we were very weary of trying anything too insane. We found the most magnificent color array of assorted pork dumplings! My mouth is still watering

I’m not going to pretend that I know a ton of information on this guy, but I did read a little and he’s pretty important among the Hindu Gods. This statue of Lord Murugan is the 2nd tallest in the world.
The caves themselves were pretty neat. I haven’t been in many caves, so I can’t really compare, but I can say these were the best so far! The Batu caves are one of the most popular Hindu shrines outside of India and
Like I said we didn’t get to really explore all that much around KL, but it was a pretty neat place overall. I feel like if we weren’t sick and staying at that hostel, it
