Kuala Lumpur Bird Park

We went to the KL bird park, the biggest free fly aviary in the world!
Near the entrance there were some vividly coloured birds sitting on perches.

We went through and there was a flock of funny black birds with a Mohican of feathers! They made a funny echoey noise.

This bird is a Scarlet Ibis, it’s a bright red bird, I’ve never seen a completely red bird before.

When we were in the big aviary there was lots of birds flying about, and blocking the paths, some of the birds were quite big, so we waited for them to move.

There were some ostriches in a cage, I’ve never seen one before, it’s ugly! This one was trying to bite the wire, I think he was trying to sharpen his beak!

This is a Hornbill, when we went into the Hornbill section they were about to feed the birds. There were some Hornbills flying about with us, and some in cages.

We filmed them being fed, the ones outside the cages were fed fruit, and the ones inside it were fed dead chicks.
The man was throwing up fruit to the Hornbill who caught it in his beak.

Petronas Towers

We went to the Petronas Towers, they were the tallest building in the world until the Taipei 101 was built in 2004. They began building the Petronas Towers in 1993 and it was opened on the first of August 1999. It is the tallest twin towers in the world.

I was dwarfed by how large the Petronas Towers are.

Kuala Lumpur

We flew to Malaysia four days ago, via the Maldives for an hour. Our flight was meant to be at 11:25AM but it was late, and came at 12:15. We landed in Kuala Lumpur at 9:30PM and got an aero bus to KLCC (Kuala Lumpur city central) and then we got a taxi to our hotel, One Stop residence. On the bus ride it felt like we were going really fast but actually we weren’t, it was just that everybody in Sri Lanka drove at 10-35 mph. Also when we were in the taxi I said “this is a soundproof car or an electric engine” then dad said “no, actually this is a normal car , its just that in Sri Lanka the engines were quite loud!!”.

On our first day in Kuala Lumpur we had a lazy morning then went swimming.

Our hotel is basically a maze with levels, and lots of stair cases branching out every other direction, and its on top of an empty shopping mall! We explored a bit and went to the Berjaya Times Square Mall. Outside there was the largest Capsule Dispensing Machine ever!

At the mall we went and looked around and found a restaurant called One Chef. It was a Chinese restaurant and I had a meal that consisted of fat noodles and chopped up pork with a side dish of fish dumplings and super fishy sauce!
