|Petronas Twin Towers|
From our accommodation we walked for about 45 minutes to the Petronas Twin Towers; it is a huge structure with a sky bridge connecting the two towers. Within the vicinity there is the Menara Tower; it has the hallmarks of the Toronto CN Tower. This area appears to be the hub of business activity that includes foreign embassies.

|Selangor Club with its British Tudor Design|
Our walk to the Colonial area was a pleasant surprise. It is located in the core of KL with an enormous private, elite Selangor Club located in its midst. It consists of a typical Tudor British designed group of buildings looking onto a massive green lawn; all part of Merdeka Square. Within this vicinity there is the Masjid Jamek Mosque--the National Mosque of Malaysia. We also discovered the Railway Headquarters--a Gothic/Moorish designed building; it makes for an interesting look.
|Menara Tower on the right--Similar to Toronto's CN Tower|
KL is a city of shopping malls. Every intersection has a mall; some specialize in computer ware while others are lifestyle malls. The malls at the main intersections are gigantic with every designer brand available. Everyone appears to be shopping; a place for retail therapy if you are into that kind of therapy.
We are now ready for our adventure in New Zealand where will spend two weeks on a bus tour of both islands.
