Hello friends! We have landed in Kuala Lumpur and spent a few days getting to know the city. Some highlights were: getting the keys to our new home and see the girls enthusiastically choose their rooms, buying a ukulele for a very excited daughter, and enjoy the nature, even though the nature experience turned out to be a little more intense than planned…
Our hotel is next to Kuala Lumpur City Center, or KLCC, and Center Park with gorgeous views to the Petronas Twin Towers. It’s wonderful to go for walks in the park! Today I was praising the nature as my husband and I strolled under the trees, little did I know I was about to have a near-nature experience!
I was walking peacefully, minding my own business, when suddenly I felt something wet raining down on me. I looked up, telling my husband what happened. “It’s from the tree,” he stated. But it had not been raining, so I kept peering up into the branches, wondering about this strange tree that was dripping water in a single spurt. And then I saw something moving on the branch. A bird? A cat? No-even bigger with gray fur and a teddy-bear face. Some sort of malay jungle raccoon! That had been peeing on me! My goodness, I was thankful that our hotel was just steps away, and more grateful than ever for a shower and soap and clean water! I think I washed my hair three times today! My girls laughed so hard when I told them what happened!
Hope you’re having beautiful days, and by the way, since we are quite busy on our end these days and I don’t have time to update the blog as often as I would like to, I thought I’d mention that you are always welcome to check out Instagram for more updates on our move to Kuala Lumpur.
