Malaysia History rounds today

Standard

Today we decided to get out and explore the story behind malaysia…wish I could share all that I learned on here. But we will only do some photos and also if I can remember what I was told I will add that.

We started the journey back at the ministry of tourism of malaysia. They have a 5 min walk through mesuem.

At this place we get to see the rainforest of some parts of malaysia. Also got to find out there are 2 malaysia’s (they are both called malaysia but when you ask the locals they say the other malaysia.) And that malaysia has its own laws and immigration system. Not sure what caused the division.
At that mesuem we saw the old clothing and how they live. Which is pretty much like most humans….we are all ONE…

After we went to the Galeri of Kuala Lumpur and we took what they call Tram ( I hope I got the spelling and name correct)…

That tour around the city cost us $0.50 per person and it’s for 1 hour.

We drove to the monument where they have the soldier statue…pretty huge.

KLCC Exploration

Standard

Today took all my kids and we really explored to the max…

Took the train from PWTC station and asked questions and was just willing to get lost and try to find our way to KLCC which is where the twin towers are (the twin towers are the oldest tallest twin towers in the world).

So here is how it went…

Got to the train station and figured out how to buy the token and where to even go from that station.

We had to take 2 different trains and had to change lines.

The whole trip cost is $5 for all 5 of us going and returning home…no traffic…am all about the train…great savings for a large family.

Some pictures of our tour around KLCC…

We could not do the twin towers tour…because it was packed so that will be for another beautiful day.

Revive your cell phone battery at home

Standard

Ok who said women can’t handle a little wires here and there….so today my oldest daughter lost her cell phone at the KLCC park…so mad about it…but I try to stay calm because I said at the end of the day it’s only a cell phone and she is still a kid.
So after 1 hour when we relize the phone was lost we went back to the park since we where only walking distance away. And when we got there the phone was gone…but this other lady was there with her kids and she said “oh I saw a lady in red top with 3 kids pick the phone but she thought it was for them” so she helped me walk around trying to find the lady but nope…it’s gone. I called the number and it keeps saying busy.

So now I just give up and we return home. So I had this old techno phone that they have but the battery stopped working and since have been travelling around asia am not able to find a bttery to purchase.

So I decided to try something new…I hooked up the battery direct to the electricity to jump start the battery…That’s the picture you see below and 25min later my battery is charged…so I put it in the phone praying that it works so that I can give it to my baby girl…and it worked…oh yes it did…at least until I can get a battery for that phone. It’s one and charging now.

So don’t throw away old batteries you can revive them…

Ok so since 7am having to travel 1 hour 30min  on the train to the immigration headquarters and now it’s almost 6pm and we just got on the train to return home. It’s not only in Ghana that they have a disorganised government entity….because this immigration office was a zoo with serious crowd.

Pay for toilet roll before using the bathroom

Standard

Today I just got a new insight on using bathrooms around here in the phillippines…

So I went into the bathroom all ready to do my thing…then I realized there was not toilet paper so I decided to walk out and check by the door since in some places in Bnagkok the toilet paper was outside so you tear some before going into the bathroom.

But to my surprise there was none…but there was a notice saying please purchase a toilet paper at the vending machine. …oh my Goodness…I could not believe it. At one point I was super furious about it…then I I came to my awareness that it’s America that has spoilt me…since in Ghana some public toilet you take your own paper or you buy and you even pay to use the toilet when you have your own paper. So I must not forget my roots I guess….lol!!!

Well I did pay the php 5 which is like 10 cents and wala I had my toilet paper and everyone was happy…lol!!

Travelling can really bring you to some form of gratitude for your country or other counties.
