The Curve (home of IKEA and Tesco) is one of the many shopping complexes in KL. It seems shopping is a national pastime as the locals love to hang out in the a/c!

With our big decision made about our housing, we’ve been excited to move in. Unfortunately, our place isn’t ready yet.  So we’ve been freeloading off of others. With our shipment not here yet and no car bought (that’s a whole different blog), we’ve found ourselves in the awkward “in between” stage.

So what have we been doing? Getting familiar with the city and the culture I guess.

A couple of Sundays ago Mr. Foo called us up on our old school Nokia (getting a different phone has proved to be a bit of a process). “He’s taking us for a cultural experience since all the Malay’s are picking figs” is what Shaun heard. We ended up at IKEA! Although Shaun probably didn’t hear Foo right, this has been a perfect example of the cultural dichotomies we’ve experienced since.

We’ve been kept busy shopping, going to school social gatherings and orientations and trying to keep fit by jogging and dodging monkeys. Below are some pictures to show you what our lives have been like lately.
