Pictures from KL and Georgetown

Tallest building in the world 2004! Joe Pagac style!

A tasty shaved ice treat featuring shaved ice, chocolate, sugar, milk, berries, gummy worms, assorted nuts, beans, peas, corn...

The entrance to a cave which houses a massive hindu temple. The statue is 170 feet tall and is made of pure, solid gold! (Fact not verified.)

A young boy shares a rare connection with a monkey. It later attacked him for staring at it while it ate.

Mia and I take in the awesome magnitude of this cave. Awesome.

This picture was taken inside one of the cave rooms. Click to enlarge it and then try to find Mia. (Fun!)

This is a soup made with all these neon things. It is called four seasons. I ate it. I don't know WHY I haven't gotten sick yet.

Joe and some of his new friends hooliganing in Kuala Lumpur. The people here all are obsessed with whitening their skin. Lotions, soaps, scrubs. They all include "Skin whitening action!"

Kuala Lumpur at night. Or, as I like to call it, KL.

The KL night market in china town. A little haggling can get the price on any item down from about $60 US to $3 US in a matter of minutes.

Catching up on some reading on the jungle train.

Does anybody want a glass/can of Pure Ghee Gheemas? I don't. (Click to enlarge)

Disney's "The Magic Gourd" now in theaters.

Chinese Opera.

Do you smell something in here? Yes. I just lit so many incense sticks that you could roast marshmallows over them.

So did we.

A chinese dragon. This man stopped dancing just to pose with me, bringing the whole festival to a crashing halt.

Chinese parade float.

Chinese parade.

The artists who created these walls were imported from china. I am going to try to study under such a clan of artists. Their work is beautiful.

This is a picture of Mia watching the sparrow lady sell handfuls of birds. I felt the look on her face did a much better job of capturing the feeling than the pictures of the woman herself do. (see story in previous blog)

Mia focuses on the blue flame.

wow, what an experience, and so multicultural! ( Which of course, I love!).
I'm glad to hear that things are going well and that Joe's artistic side is being piqued to learn some new things. I'm sure just by taking it all in and by photographing, you are finding ways to capture the experience so that it incorporates into your art.
I love both your creative writing! Keep it coming!
