Many, as it turns out.

Another nice start to the day, though this time we had light breakfasts so we could enjoy the main event: brunch in the revolving restaurant above the observation deck in KL Tower. This gave us a superb view of the city and an impressive buffet feast... plus a pianist cursed with the job of playing Happy Birthday To You for what seemed like every single guest in the place. He must have played it eight times. Lucky guy.
Food was lovely, especially the lamb - it's fabulous here! The 'chocolate mountain' was yummo too, a large cone of dense mud cake style chocolate goodness, yum.
Had a great view of the Patronus Towers, though we'll see them again when we have drinks at the Traders Hotel's Skybar in a few days' time. After lunch we visited KLCC, a luxury shopping complex right next to the Towers, so we got to see them at ground level too. Immsense and sort of glittery, can't wait to see them up close at night with all the lights.
KLCC was fancy but we really went there for the Toys R Us shop - and more Tomy trains! There was a small range and we did buy some more track plus a few bits and pieces, but it was a pretty small store so we'll probably hunt around for a bigger one.
After that it was back to the hotel for a rest. Plane Boy ordered some DVDs - a lot more 'cloak and dagger' than in Bangkok (wink wink, nudge nudge, say no more). Had to pick them up from a stairwell! Nerdia was all set to try the hotel pool but it was freezing cold so no dice. (For those familiar with BKK's Grand China Princess: it's small, but nowhere near THAT small!) Instead she amused herself watching the lateral bungee race and air cushion fighting at the Times Square entrance (soft drink promotions are the same the world over, it seems).
We were going to skip tea after the big lunch, but hunger eventually crept up on us so we returned to Times Square for a bite. Ended up in a fiarly forgettable cafe right below the in-store roller coaster, which rumbled overhead every few minutes. (Nerdia was all set to do the amusement park on our first visit, but the line was huge so she'll get in as soon as it opens some other day.) Tea was pathcy: garlic rice good, sour plum & Sprite bad. On the other hand, Plane Boy liked his cheese baked rice with chicken chop, and the marvellous apple green tea served in a carafe is a new favourite.
That was it for yesterday. Today we're off to visit the aquarium!
