Malaysia – Kuala Lumpur

We arived in Kuala Lumpur on the 26th of April. We left at the Gold Coast 2:00 and got there at 9:00. On the first day we relaxed and slept at The Prince hotel which is close to the city center . For dinner we had room serves, my mum had seafood, my dad had a beef burger and I had meatballs, the food was very good.2nd day - We all went shopping and had a fish foot spa at Times Square KL this is where you put your feet in a fish tank and special fish eat the dead skin off your feet. It felt funny and tickled a bit.On the 3rd day we went to the Batu Caves! ♥♥♥ This is a Hindu temple which is set in a huge limestone cave in a hill. there are many monkeys about, they are very cute (a monkey almost bit me and my mum) but luckily it didn’t (few) We had to walk up 300 stairs to get to the caves!!! At the front of it there was a huge golden statue.We also went up to Genting Highlands in a cable car. Genting Highlands 51km northeast of Kuala Lumpur and has 4 big hotels, a casino with a very large outdoor and indoor theme park ♦♦♦Kuala Lumpur China Town Today we went to the KL tower (malay) The only bad thing was it was raining and I couldnt see a thing!!! I had some cake and sandwiches for afternoon tea in the rotating restaurant. The best part was the floor was moving!!! About Kuala Lumpur Tower (Malay: Menara Kuala Lumpur; abbreviated as KL Tower) is a tall tower located in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Its construction was completed in 1995. It is used for communication purposes and features an antenna that reaches 421 m (1,381 ft). The roof of the pod is at 335 m (1,099 ft). The rest of the tower below has a stairwell and an elevator to reach the upper area, which also contains a revolving restaurant, providing diners with a panoramic view of the city. We later went to china town K.L shopping. I bought a pocket watch, my dad bought a lighter and my mum bought a LV suit case she got it for RM130 witch is about $38 Australian. (its fake not a real LV). My pocket watch was 45RM she said 30RM I said if i could have it for 15RM and she said yup.     Universal Studios

Singapore - Santosa Island

Hi everyone, we have been to Singapore and stayed on Santos Island we arrived on the 24th of April and stayed at a hotel called The Hotel Michael its right next to Universal Studios so it was just a short walk to the Unerversal Studios Theme park, we have had a fantastic day looking around the Park and enjoying all the rides, we went for a ride on the transformers 3d coaster experience, what a fantastic ride that was, it was amazing to see the transformers doing battle in and around the city streets the car we were sitting in felt like it was flying around all the high rise buildings in the city, it made my stomach rise when it fell from the top of a sky scraper, but it was ok because Bumble Bee caught us just before we hit the ground ,it was pretty cool, there were lots of exciting rides there, we went for a ride in and around a ship that had all the Madagascar Stars in it, we also had lunch in a 1950′s snack bar, Shrek also had a movie we could all go and see, it was in 3d and the chairs moved and squirted air and water, so when the donkey sneezed it really felt like he was sneezing on me, YUK!!!! The Hotel Michael was a very nice place to stay, we only stayed there 1 night but we might stay there longer when we go back, Santosa is very big and we only had time to see a small part of it, next time we will see allot more, Singapore is a very clean place and the people there are very polite, not many people drive cars because the registration costs $60,000 AUD per year, but the underground metro system is very good and easy to use, Singapore is very hot because it is so close to the equator .      

United Kingdom - Windsor Castle 

We arrived in the UK on the 7th of may and whiloe we were there we went to see Windsor Castle, At windsor castle I saw the Queens doll house that was given to her when she was a very small girl!!  I also saw her storybook that had been made for her. There was a armoury room with shields and swords! there was a glass coach, witch is used often for royal weddings.There was also a gold coach witch is very often used for state visits and was also used for theQueens coronation in 1953! =] The Queen was in residence, we knew this because her flag, which is known as the royal standaid!! She was in her privete apartment. I got a picture with the guard he was wearing a bear skin hat. (he just stood still, kinda scary!) i had a great time!      

France - Cathedral of Reun

The Cathedral not-re Dame of Reun was built around 1000AD and it took 68 years to complete this magnificent building.The building has been altered through out the years with it being finished to it current look in the late 1300s.In 1944 during the second world war the building was hit by seven large bombs and mostly destroyed, the wonderful glass windows that decorate this Cathedral were removed in 1939 and stored somewhere safe in underground vaults.This cathedral was rebuilt by the village people of Reun and was back to its former glory with glass stained windows by 1956, as we walked around the inside of this beautiful building, we enjoyed the sun gleaming through its stunning windows which depict stories through out the ages .Work is consistently being carried out to keep it looking as beautiful as it did when it was first made. The city if Reun is filled with building that have been restored and look after since the fourteenth century, its a real step back in time walking around the city streets of Reun.

France - Paris - The Louvre

Today we went to visit the Louvre in Paris. It is very stunning in its size and the gardens and statues in front of it, there is allot to see in the Louvre and you would need weeks to see all of it, when we went inside the museum we started with the Egypt collection, it had a fantastic collection of artifacts and it was fascinating to see how the people of Egypt Lived so long ago, it had a very big collection of sarcophagus, they were decorated with paintings and stories about the people that had been mummified inside them,. The Louvre also has one of the best art collections in the world we spent hours walking around its big halls viewing paintings that were hundreds of years old, some of the must have taken years to have completed, we have been so lucky to have seen these great master pieces, we even had the chance to see th famous Moana lisa, wow thius picture is very well looked after it has its own glass case, you can only get to see it from 2 meters away it was allot smaller than I thought it would be but it was well worth the walk around the hallways filled with beautiful art work to see it, while we were walking around we saw a few people taking sketch's of the statues in the Louvre, I think this is something that I would like to do one day. It was nice to play with other children in the parks in front of the Louvre, and walk around them looking at the wonderful statues, mum had her photo taken with a famous rap star and that was pretty cool, we also enjoyed a guided bus tour around Paris, we went for a boat cruise and from there we could see the Paris cathedral of Notre dame and other great buildings.      

France - Paris - The Eiffel

The Effil Tower was built in the 1800s asa tempory monument for the people of paris and the 1900s world fair,It was so popular that it has not been taken down since. we waited in line for a couple of hours to get the lift up to the top of this magnificant tower, it was well worth the wait to get a trip straight to the to of the Effil Tower, you can walk up the steps also but today we decided to take the easy way up. The tower is over 300 meters high and there is a measurement on the wall of the top look out that reads 281 meters, it is so high up there it feels like we are flying in a plane the view of Paris was breath taking, there is telescope mounted all around the tower look out and you can use them for 1 eruo to get a closer look at the areas around this tall structure. It was an amazing experience to be so high and to be able to see so much of Paris at once. We enjoyed it up there so much we decided to stay and watch the sun go down in Paris it was a once in a life time experience, well that is until next time, to see the sun go down there was awesome, I am very happy that we did that. After a trip down to the bottom of the tower we got into the back of a Tuk Tuk, A tuk tuk is a motorbike that has three wheels and is used as a taxi, this one was decorated with flashing blue and red disco lights and was painted blue and white, it took us the long way around to the monument The Arc de Triomphe, the roundabout around this monument can only be decribed as crazy, the are no rules about getting around it and it has three lanes kind of going around the Arc de Triomphe it was allot of fun, After we jumped on the metro back to where we were staying, we had such a good time going to the effil tower that we went back another time to sit in the big parks in front and watch the light display come on at night, it is a very popular place to go this time of year and there was hundreds of people enjoying the parks and watching the sun go down, i found a nice comfortable spot in a tree to watch the lights come on, it was allot od fun.
