Lord Murugan. It is a Hindu shrine. It is also covered with monkeys, sneaky dirty thieving monkeys. Stella learned this the hard way when she decided to put her sandwich in the outside pocket of her Camelbak. The monkey started casing her, jumped on her back, she started doing circles, screaming, while the monkey reached in her Camelbak and came back with a tupperware of sandwiches.
Our first dealing with petty crime in Asia was a monkey.
We walked up the 273 steps to the cave and it was an amazing sight. There was incense, monkeys, music, weird florescent shrine souvenirs. It was good day.

After Karaoke, Stella's request was to get a fish foot spa. So we paid money to allow our flesh to be used as fish food.
|It was total mind over matter in this exercise.|
For the grand sum of $20 Stella and I got our feet eaten by fish for 30 minutes.
|I am ashamed at how delicious I am to these creatures.|
Monday we went out for breakfast and ate waffles, french toast, and baked beans. Then we went to the KL Bird Park. Saw some birds. Fed some birds and then I saw a mother duck with her babies and had to pet one, so I caught a baby duckling and pet it. Then I put it back. Whether this was permissible or not is still to be determined but that duck needed some petting and now it is good to go.

Then we got home, went swimming, and put the kids to bed early. It has been a good weekend. I think I am going to like it here.
