Join me for a Hawker Meal in Kuala Lumpur

By now, you are probably thinking that day three of our visit to Kuala Lumpur is going on forever.  However, I still have one more thing to share with you.  When evening finally arrived, we ventured out to experience dinner at a hawker center.  A hawker center is a large food court, which houses many vendors selling a great variety of expertly prepared inexpensive food choices.  Joining us for this memorable meal was Dr. Ng Yen Yen and Salahuddin Mohd Arifin from the Malaysian Ministry of Tourism, who helped to coordinate our fabulous journey.  After dinner, we strolled through Petaling Street, one of the main streets in Kuala Lumpur's Chinatown.  This bustling area is famous for shopping.  I’ve also included some photos of an Indian Malay street vendor who Sophie befriended.  Sophie has spent a good deal of time in India and has a particular fondness for South Indian cuisine.
