Up at 5.15 am, adequate breakfast and on to the shuttle bus to the airport - 5 minutes drive. Nervous about excess luggage - our bags together weigh 50 kgs instead of 40, but the check in girl didn't bat an eye. Phew!
KL airport is huge and so amazing. We caught a train to our departure gate. The flight left on time at 9am for a 6 1/2 hour day flight to Sydney. It's great flying during the day. We try to do it all the time. It's much better than trying to sleep on planes. I watched "Something Borrowed" and "Little Miss Sunshine". We landed at 7pm ish and went through customs with my tulip bulbs in china clogs but they took the bulbs off me and Dan's tree bark pencil. We picked up the hire car,checked into the Mecure Airport Hotel, had a beer and pizza and now going to bed.
I bought some Dior perfume mini packs duty free on board the flight. The Bombay Sapphire gin at KL and Sydney duty free was $30 a bottle, so I got it for half price at Langkawi.
