okay, i'll try to tell you a bit about our first day in kuala lumpur, malaysia in this post, now that i finally have photographs to accompany my lame writing.

we left seoul around 11:00 p.m. on a red-eye flight to kuala lumpur, malaysia.

only casey, jeff, and myself stayed in kuala lumpur. our other fellow travelers went to bali and thailand [i think - i'm pretty bad at listening].

anyway, we arrived around 5:00 a.m., tired-eyed and excited.

after showering the sweat off from our daytime adventure, we grabbed some delicious street food in chinatown near our hostel.

once it got dark, we went to a temple (hindu, we think...), where we had to take our shoes off and play the role of fascinated tourists.

being a germaphobe, the whole no shoes thing is NOT MY STYLE, to say the least.

we ended our night with a 90 minute massages for RMB 100 [only about $33!]
