Ampang > Kuala Selangor Fireflies (70km)

DSCF5951

This is it, finally after one week staying in Kuala Lumpur with Sabariah an Amir’s family, we are on the road again. Thanks for your welcome guys :-) It was nice! I wish we would spend less time front of our screen and more outside but we were sooo later on our blog. Today we want to reach a town where we can observe fireflies in their natural environment. Hope it’s nice.

Ampang, new filter

IMG_20151221_141640

Normally, we should have been gone this morning but I had an issue. I had to replace the filter of my Katadyn mini (the cap attached to the ceramic cylinder broke). I could not find any shop in KL where I could buy a replacement part so I looked online and discover this one : the Sawyer mini water filter. The brand is American (again! Everytime I find a good product today it’s coming from the U.S.). This product was cheaper than a new ceramic filter from Katadyn. It’s much lighter, easier to use, much more compact and can filter more 300.000 litres! Thanks a life time!

Here we are in Borneo! Rah, this is going to be different travelling without any bicycle. We will have to rely on public transports and I’m sure it won’t be funny everyday. Today, we want to get to Sepilok, a small village where there is a famous Orangutan Rehabilitation centre. We don’t know it but we are not going to meet orangutan the way we expected. This is jungle here!

Ampang > KL airport

DSCF3165

The cheapest flight we have found to go to Borneo is leaving early morning. This is why we decided to go to the airport tonight and sleep there. At first, we planned to catch the train from Ampang and take a second one at some point but Amir offered us to drive us at another station so that way we did not have to hop on two trains. Thanks for this :-) The train cost 6.30Ringgit to get to KL Sentral.

Kuala Lumpur, Menara KL visit

DSCF3147

Third point of view of the Petronas towers (it might be the last one for me because I get a bit tired of taking the same thing since 3 days). Tonight we got to the Menara Tower but this view is not free of charge… 52Ringgit to get to the first floor behind windows or 104Ringgit to reach the rooftop. Seriously?! That’s a bit super expensive for just a view on a concrete jungle… Naturally the top floor must be very nice but well…┬áThat’s out of our budget…
