I have arrived. I have no idea, and no good reason for this being my very first visit to Malaysia despite living so near for over a decade. All I do know is that I am here now, and very glad to be.
I think that the impression I have always had, particularly of Kuala Lumpur, has been that it is a highly modern, futuristic city with of course the iconic Petronas Towers. Now I am kicking myself that I have waited so long! It is an incredible city, with a rich mix of architecture and culture.
So what could be more fitting than a sneak preview of the many photos and tales to come, with a change of background and some funky pics of the futuristic Petronas Tower high above the skyscrapers on the skyline, such as this one reflected in the table I was sitting at the first evening I arrived in KL.
A classic view of the Tower itself, for the current background.
And a couple of “preview” images of the diversity that is KL with a promise of much more to follow.
This year has taken such a toll, and although I continue to struggle with the heavy side effects of potentially life waving meds, as well as that overbearing, ever present grief, it is good to have a diversity of surroundings such as the KL setting.
A setting to inspire and remind of the past, the present and the future.
