We flew Perth to Kuala Lumpur to begin our travels in Malaysia. I thought I had filled out all appropriate forms to enter Malaysia but was told by the Check In Clerk that I hadn’t! She helped out a bit but said I would need to complete certain sections before getting to Malaysia. I did my best but obviously missed quite a few sections because we had trouble at immigration in Kuala Lumpur. Well I didn’t, my immigration man didn’t ask for any app to be shown, but Anthony wasn’t so lucky! So we had to head over to a help desk for them to complete it all for us. What a rigmarole. All vaccinations have to be entered, date, name and serial number – 3 times! After this we thought our luggage would be waiting for us, should not have tempted fate with that thought. Everyone from our plane was still waiting for their luggage. Finally 45 minutes later out it came, at least it arrived so I should count my blessings.
The Movenpick Hotel is around 15 minutes from the airport but we fancied a change from the regular airport hotel. I didn’t realise that we had arrived over a bank holiday weekend – The King’s Birthday plus the day after it was the beginning of the Haj, pilgrimage to Mecca. The hotel is connected to the Sebang Mosque.
We finally arrived at 11.30 pm, even though we were starving we couldn’t be bothered with room service so just went straight to bed. The pillows were the softest I’ve ever slept on.
Beautiful pools, but segregated!
We had a leisurely morning as our flight to Penang wasn’t until 2 pm. So after a relaxing buffet breakfast we had a wander around the pool. I didn’t have a swim as I was ready for travelling!
