Malaysia Drive-away (Day 2 of 4)

Plan for the day was to capture Petronas Twin Towers in the evening, so movement was restricted to KL.  First place to visit after breakfast was the Central Market.  This place main attractions are souvenirs and handicrafts.  Photos below will show the things one can find at Central Market.

Later in the afternoon, headed over to KLCC (Kuala Lumpur City Centre) which is next to Petronas Twin Towers for lunch, and then recce the area for shooting positions.  Stayed here till about 8pm before driving back to hotel.

After shower, went out for late dinner cum supper just outside the hotel which is the busy food street behind Bukit Bintang.  Even after a short drizzle, the place was still crowded as usual with diners.
