Malaysia Kuala Lumpur Petronas Towers

18 December 2005

Night shots

In the evening I decide to venture over to petronas towers again, for some night shots and to find dinner.
The attached mall has some classy restaurants on the top floor, but all are empty.
Near the bottom I find 'Authentic Italian Pizza and Pasta House', now I had pizza yesterday, but I can see a fat old italian guy making the bases by hand in front of a wood oven....sold.

I get seated near the window, but not quite, and soon after an American family sits between me and the window, at first I am a little annoyed as I was enjoying the view.....
Mom immediately produces from her fanny pack, 4 individually sealed medicated hand wipes and shouts at the kids, this is going to be great! I can stare right through them pretending to look at the view out the window and watch the hilarity unfold.
They seem to be quite well off, the children are wearing proper shirts and tailored shorts, with sandals, mom has on a formal looking skirt..adorned with a fanny pack, dad has slacks, a polo shirt and an expensive DSLR camera hanging around his neck..at the table

I order my food (more on that later) and wait for my new friends to decide, the children have allergies to almost everything, and the mother is checking the menu for gluten advice, its getting better by the second!
The children are asked what they would like to drink, and they want 7up. Dad says its ok since they are on holiday to have 7up. Mother does not agree, lets go with M for mom and D for dad
M: You know they cant have anything with food coloring because of their A.D.D.!
D: 7up is clear, it doesnt have any food coloring
M: Of course it does, it has clear coloring! If they didnt add the clear coloring it would be yellow from the lemon!

Kids start crying.
The poor waiter comes over for the order, and is asked a lot of questions by the mother, and the whole family cant understand the fellows good english, which has an asian accent to it, but I can understand him from where I am just fine
Shes asking him specific preservative numbers, eventually she gives up and they decide caesar salad is the best thing, but they have to order 2 of course. The grown ups get a regular chicken caesar, for the children...hold the cheese and cruotons. To drink they have water.

I eat my dinner the slowest I ever have in my life, but even so by this point I am done...and have to leave, a little dissapointed I couldnt watch the rest of the show.

Now to talk about my dinner!
It was probably the greatest pizza I have ever eaten in my life. The base was incredible, I had 'rustica' from the traditional menu, which is like nepolitana but with added capers and pepperoni.
As I was ordering I saw a salad go past and quickly added that as well, it was also brilliant, great sun dried tomatoes and fetta and olives on different lettuces with these really sweet fresh tomatoes like I have never had before, and a thick sweet balsamic dressing.
I want to go there again, do you think they do breakfast?

After dinner I venture out to the forecourt in front of the towers, and take some long exposed night shots.

The end of my last full day in Kuala Lumpur, tomorrow I will leave for the airport in the afternoon, not sure of the logistics yet, need to check out of the hotel by noon, flight not until 2145.
