The first day in KL threw up many new experiences. In particular as I walked back from KLCC to the Traders Hotel after my day with Maharani, the park and the outflowing doors of the KL Convention centre were flourishing with very colourful youth of malaysia. Hundreds if not thousands of them. It was a convention where everyone dressed up as their favourite contemporary Japanese cartoon characters. Very elaborate (expensively detailed) costumes and there seemed to be a job lot of long haired wigs that had a specific look to the fringe - and came in many colours - obviously to go with the costumes of the different male and female characters. The very high platform boots and shoes that matched. Many were staying at the Traders so the entry foyer was in party mode. It was truly fabulous to behold, and I felt their energy and excitement.
