Another quick stop in KK

Our flight to KL/Bangkok was leaving out of KK so after waving goodbye to the turtles and sharks, we hopped on a night bus from Semporna (75 RM - $25 US). The bus was touted as a VIP bus which normally means frigid AC and business class seats. It was the end of Hari Raya and the place was packed, they had 5 buses heading to KK instead of their usual 1. We quickly determined that since we were one of the last to buy our tickets, our bus was easily the worst of the bunch. Hint to other travelers...the onboard bathrooms are NOT a convenience. They are a smelly blight on the world of bus travel. I haven't yet managed to step into one and I hope I never have to...
We arrived later in the morning than expected and took a taxi into town and stopped to pick up a few last minute items at the market before high tailing it to the post office to take advantage of Malaysia's cheap shipping rates! We shipped home 10 KG for about $35...not so bad. Now lets just hope it arrives, it will only be 2-3 months :-) That night we gulped down our very last mee goreng (fried noodle), said goodbye to Malaysia and prepared for our morning flight to Bangkok!
