KL has skyrocketed onto our bid list.

What's not to love about a place with tons to do (aquarium, planetarium, resorts outside the city, pilot school in town, philharmonic, art galleries, parks parks parks), wonderful weather, reliable and clean public transportation (took the LRT today), green everywhere (we walked through a forest preserve to get to the KL Tower today), great shopping (Central Market this morning, wow), amazing food (Chinese, Japanese, Thai, western chains like TGI Fridays and McD), better prices, friendly people, clean air, mountain ranges, English....

Oh my goodness. And a city of only 1.4 million people. It's like living in the countryside.

Oh yeah, yesterday we went up to the Petronas sky bridge. Petronas (accent on the first syllable, like in petrol) is a petrol/gas company here. The twin towers are their headquarters. There's a huge Suria KLCC shopping mall there with movie theater, food courts, art gallery, etc. Really pretty. We had lunch at the Hard Rock Cafe' down from our hotel, let the kids relax in the hotel's rooftop pool in the afternoon, and had dinner at a nearby Japanese place. We walked everywhere. The kids are totally sold on this city.
