Kuala Lumpur

-The National Mosque . We quickly found out non-Muslim tourists were not allowed.-

We thought that we'd post a few more pictures of Kuala Lumpur to help round out our version of the city. We found the Malaysian capital to be one of the more unique places that we've visited. I'm not sure if this was because of the Arab, Islamic and Muslim influence or if it was just simply the non-western architecture and distinct culture. Either way, the city was inspiring... but whatever you do, don't be trusting the taxi drivers.

-Somehow we were invited to a KTM (Kuala Lumpur's Metro) company party. We joined this little guy and his family for a delicious Halal feast.-

-An Islamic clock at the National Mosque.-

-An example of the unique architecture in Malaysia. The Dayabumi tower was built with the pattern of eight-pointed stars, also known as Arabic Star and with the use of the stunning Islamic arch at both the top and the bottom of each column.-

-KL was covered in picture-worthy graffiti.-

-The KTM headquarters, where we attended their company party.-
