Yes Divas, I have made it to Malaysia! But before we touched down in the Country of a Million Smiles, we had a quick stop in Taiwan. On my Malaysia Airlines flight from LAX, I sat next to two fabulous people, one of them being Kai. She is a graduate from Washington and is returning to Taiwan to start her “real life.” I had a chance to ask her a few questions before we parted ways. And she is the newest member of the Diva Nation!
I am now at Hotel Maya in Kuala Lumpur, which is a fabulous boutique hotel at the foot of the famous Twin Towers. They are the second highest buildings in the world. Check out my amazing view!
The trip from San Francisco is a long one. I left on Tuesday at 7 pm to get to the airport on time. My dear friend Krissie drove me to the airport and we met up over a piece of banana cream pie off the highway (tacky but yummy!). My travels continued to LAX, then Taipei, and finally Kuala Lumpur! It is now Thursday! I totally lost Wednesday crossing the international timeline over the pacific somewhere.
The Maya Hotel is a wonderfully equipped hotel in the heart of KL. My room is very cozy. I have a wonderful firm bed and delightful pink suede lounge chair. My favorite room in the glasses bathroom with a big deep tub and glorious shower with one of those shower heads that come down from the ceiling. (If you have been following my blogs for the past few years, you know how much I love a good shower!)
It is my first time in Malaysia and I look forward to exploring the city! If you have any recommendations, please send them my way!
