In Malaysian, “kuching” translates as “cat”. The city is sometimes called “cat city”. There is one nice pecularity – there are a lot of cat statues. If you walk in the city, you can meet a lot of them.
The first one you can met is on the square between the shore and Nova Kuching Hotel, near one of Kuching’s McDonald’s.
Another one can be met in Kuching Park next to one of the large buildings.
Next to this cat, there is a playground surrounded by bushes with a few cats.
Another one is located at Jalan Padungan.
Found on a bus stop in Kuching.
Is it a demonstration of love or a manifestation of mourning?
Zoo Negara is located in Kuala-Lumpur. It is quite hard to get there and not to pay much for the transportation. We’ve got there by going to Wangsa Maju LRT station and then taking a Rapid KL bus. But the buses are really rare, so we were forced to wait for forty minutes, in fact, outside the city at a non-conditioned bus stop for the return trip.
The ticket will cost for about 22$, but that was totally worth it – there were rare animals, even those of whom I’ve never heard about (taking into account that I’ve visited zoos in Thailand and Beerwah, Australia it is quite cool).
Meet giant tortoise and capibara.
An elephant (mm, yeah, it’s a classic).
I’ve also made a use of the recently boungt selfie stick.
Selfie with girrafe =)
Selfie with deers.
And my favourite one! Selfie with giant panda!
I’ve went to KL for a day before going on with my journey. As it figured out, that was a good decision, because I’ve suddenly visited a concert of Malaysian band called Genji Baskers.
Currently I am in a journey through South-East Asia. My first destination was Malaysia. I was asked to write an informal article about Kuala-Lumpur in Russian, so I did that in my Russian-languaged blog.
Maybe, google translate will do well and you can always see the photoes. Or, if somebody asks, I can translate it in English.
I am going to post smaller English-languaged posts here. My next destination is Laos.
