Malaysia Photo Diary: Walking Around KL

So it was our first day to go around Malaysia and all was swell. We walked around the city and took the train and bus to reach different parts of the city. So after going to Batu Caves in the morning, we had lunch then headed to the Freedom Square where the big "I Love KL" can be found. Taking photos was very easy and organized. There was a line and each group was allowed a few minutes for picture taking. Adjacent to the "I Love KL" spot is a huge field (Dataran Merdeka) where people can have picnics. And across the field was the Sultan Abdul Samad Building, which houses the Malaysian Ministry of Information, Communication and Culture. The architecture of the building was really impressive. I could just stare at it the whole day. At the other end of the field was the fountain and across the street was the Cathedral of Saint Mary (which we did not visit anymore). We then headed to some malls in the city and then to the Central Market to get some souvenirs. It was a very tiring day since it was also unbelievably hot but it was also a nice way to experience Kuala Lumpur.

And oh, we went to the Petronas Towers as well. Will have a different post for this one. :)
