when on holiday, you don't want to spend your time in front of a screen

Sorry for taking so long to post the first Chapter of my trip.
Writing takes time and discipline and I'm not sure I have either of both. so I'll mainly post photos.
I woke up one hour later than I planned this morning, I’ve set my alarm at 5am but not on the right day... big stress when waking up I’ve seen 6.12 on the clock! I rushed in the bathroom, brushed my teeth, cleaned my face and grabbed my bags and left. I always plan to wake up very early before I travel so I have one hour to wake up and have breakfast. I wasn’t late at the airport but had to skip the relaxing breakfast at home.
We had a 20 minutes stop in Dubai then flew to Brunei Where I had to wait for 3 hours before catching the plane to KL. I stayed in the airport. At 12.30 priers started to come out of the speakers (Brunei is a Muslim Country). This and the sight I had from the transit hall made me fully realise I was quite far from the cold Europe.
Arrived in KL airport, the security check was really quick. The agent just took my passport and stamped it without asking to see my return ticket or asking me any question about why I was here and for how long (I’m so used to the Western paranoid way, it felt really good to not feel suspected of any hidden agenda).
I took the bus to get to the B&B in the city.
Laurianne joined me late at night on the 5th (I was starting to worry as she didn’t have a phone and had no way to contact me in case of trouble and she was being late according to the time she landed at KL international airport).
We’re sharing the same bed in a tiny room with no window. We have a wet room/toilet and air con. The B&B is only 10 minutes walking distance from the Petronas Twin Towers. We are basically in the city centre. Night life here is loud and a bit messy but everything is teasing our curiosity.
