Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Our main destinations on this trip were Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia, but it ended up costing less to fly in and out of KL via Eva Airways so that's what we did! We've been wanting to visit KL for a while, and this would be a great opportunity.. The best part- we happened to book the Hello Kitty Jet route!!! If y'all know me, you know I was totally freaking out!!!
Everything was Hello Kitty from the pillows to the toilet paper.. They even cut a carot into the shape of her bow on our food! I was in heaven! And Joshua loved it too.. Don't let him fool ya! ;)
We checked into the Traders Hotel which supposedly has the best view in the city of the Patronas Towers.. I was sure to book a tower view room for us since Joshua has a fascination with extremely tall buildings.. They used to be the tallest in the world from 1998-2004.. Our room view was amazing! 
We arrived in the early afternoon so we walked around the city a bit (nothing too exhausting after a 27 hour trip) then met our friend, Masa, back at our hotel for dinner and drinks at the Skybar.. Masa lives in DFW and is a big time world traveller.. We met him in Bangkok for dinner once and had so much fun, and he was nice enough to swing by KL to hang out for a night in Asia again.. 
The Skybar is on the 33rd floor of the Traders Hotel and is a semi-enclosed area around a swimming pool.. It has an amazing view of the towers which made our dinner all the more beautiful!
The next morning we left for our Southeast Asia adventure, and after a couple weeks, came back to KL since it was our exit point too.. Luckily, Americans don't need visas to visit KL! This time we had a couple days to spend and covered good area.. We had some amazing middle eastern food- KL is a melting pot of cultures.. We went to Bukit Bintang, Central Market, Chinatown and through the super fancy mall.. KL may have one of the nicest, most high end malls we've ever seen.. That last evening we hit up another really high up bar, this time on the 57th floor.. It was a neat place that also overlooked the towers, but the view just had nothing on the Skybar at Traders.. So back to Skybar we went to end our last night and to recap all the wonderful things we were able to see and do together.. I worked so hard on planning and researching this trip so I was satisfied and felt like all the time spent was worth it when Joshua told me how much he enjoyed it.. He works so hard for us, and planning time for these experiences together means the world to me.. There's no one else I'd rather explore our world with.. 
Now back onto that Hello Kitty Jet to head home to Texas.. Cheers, y'all!
