Well, Today was a full day. KC and his girlfriend picked me up at the hotel at 11:00am and we got back at around 630pm.
First Stop. Patronas Towers (Ever see the movie "Entrapment"?) Yeah, those twin towers. Beneath them is a huge shopping mall. We ate some lunch at the Dome Cafe restaurant surrounded by stores like: Gucci, Coach, Georgio Armani, Jimmy Choo and the like. It is a very upscale shopping experience.
Next we stepped outside to the park so we could try to get some pictures of the towers. Unfortunately the Skybridge which spans the two towers at the 41st floor was no longer open for tickets. Bummer! Oh well. Next time.
Petronas Towers before the rain deluge
Water feature and kiddie pool at KLCC park
Next Stop: Central market and China town.

Detail of the butterfly silk brocade.
I've come to the conclusion, silk doesn't photograph well.

In my bedroom was this wooden carving which reminds me of the aran pattern sweaters i've seen but have avoided knitting.

Landed, found an ATM that accepted one of my Debit Cards, found my luggage and a taxi and ultimately made it to my hotel. Nice hotel, neat clean room and the water temperature and pressure in the shower is A M A Z I N G!
Today (Friday) Went to the FCS Office to do some setup for my training next week with the FCS trainers. Hope I can get the cab driver here next week and not get lost.

Also in attendance: Duncan (Man of Honor) and Phil (Best Man).
The 'Hen Night'
NEXT STOP: Bali, Indonesia.
I just arrived, a couple hours ago, at the St.Regis - Bali. WOW, it's not too shabby! I can see the golf course and the ocean (though distant) from my room. HUGE Bathtub.. LOVE IT!! Hopefully will get to do a little exploring and not work the entire time while here.
At some point while here I will be trying out the services. Restaurants, Fire Dance Ceremony as well as a Spa Treatment, it's up to us to put the employees through their paces.

Now, for the important part of the vacation, Knitting!! Yes, I'm the goofball sitting by the pool knitting from 10am - 6pm. I really thought I'd get a shawl finished. (Blue Heron "Chocolate") but, alas I spent too much time in the pool... nearly finished though. Luckily my flight was cancelled on the way out and had to wait 6 hours for the next flight so I went to the Admiral's Club Lounge and knitted away the hours.
Just got home Sunday. Although I haven't finished the shawl yet, I started the Knitting Pure & Simple "Weekend Neck Down Jacket" Now is it to be warn on weekends? or should it only take a weekend to knit? I'm confused, as usual. It's a sympathy sweater since mom just re-started her Knitting Pure&Simple cardigan sweater. This way we can work on the same sort of project at the same time.
Next week..... PARIS!!
I will be flying to Paris on Friday, getting in Saturday, working until the 15th then spending 15, 16 and 17 sightseeing. Fun times as this is the first time I've been to the "City of Light." Plans include Eiffel Tower, Louvre and Rodin Museum. Perhaps I'll ask the concierge about yarn shops. Will first be staying at the Express by Holiday Inn Canal de la Villette untili the 15th, then a couple days at the LeMeridien Montparnasse then final evening at the Westin Paris.
Hope all is well with everyone!
