My trip to Malaysia Part 10

Its been almost a year since I went to Malaysia, better wrap this up soon.

 We left early to take a flight from Kota Bharu to Kuala Lumpur which is a very quick trip; about half an hour.When we left the airport we took a bus and my seat had no seatbelt but others did. I guess even here buses don't have seatbelts. So many taxis also had no seatbelts at the back for my kids and I and was PO'd about that. Shame on Malaysia for still not updating this. We went to Midvalley Mega Mall but for the life of me I don't remember anything about it but my daughter wrote it in her diary so it must be true. We stayed at the Prescott Inn which was conveniently located close to everything and affordable. It was very clean and modern. Not a five star hotel but very acceptable. We walked a lot to local eateries which were cheap and delicious.Do not, I repeat do not,order western food at this hotel's restaurant. It was horrible. But as my husband said why are you ordering western food here in Malaysia anyway. He had a point. On this day I got to go to a place I've been dying to go to for so many years. You will see this picture on so many calendars, cookbooks etc and will probably not even know its in Malaysia. I'm talking about the Shah Alam mosque. Its a beautiful, large, blue domed mosque. I saw many quran classes going

how we got there.

on in the mosque and sat in the masjid area for a long time just soaking up the nur. There were lots of women who came to pray sunnah prayers wearing their lovely telekung (prayer garments). Around the mosque were people selling islamic clothing. When it was time to pray the imam began reciting my favourite surah;al-inshirah. It meant so much to me, to hear him recite fa inna illah yusri yusrah; verily after every difficulty comes relief, since my second time in Malaysia, was so much more pleasant than my first time, alhumdullilah.
