The last port at which we called was Port Klang, the access point for Kuala Lumpur, the capital and financial center of Malaysia. We had a chance to visit the magnificent 88-story Petronas Towers, to see Hindu temples, mosques and our lovely Anglican cathedral. We could have gone to the Batu caves (and climbed 272 steps that are filled with monkeys and monkey-business.) But we didn’t. Instead we took the ship's shuttle bus to a mall in Port Klang and bought paper clips, Post-It notes, and Scotch tape. On the way out we looked at an over the counter menu at a MacDonalds and saw everything familiar but the Salted Egg Yolks in the photo below. And then we came back to the ship.

How can we be half way around the world and be so blasé? “We’ve been there before” is no excuse. It was difficult to get to KL and took quite a while, but we should have made an effort. Since we have no photos of sites to share, we offer you pix of lavatory signage, an idea for musicians who can’t find a parking space, a way to get noticed that needs a sermon preached decrying it, and finally a sweet shot from our suite that shows the pilot boat pulling away from the ship (the pilot is on the back deck) as our reading lamps are reflected on the glass.

Next port: Trincomalee, Sri Lanka. We’ll be there!!
