Batu Caves(Malaysia)

Today is our last day in Malaysia before we head home. It’s Sunday morning for us and then we have about a day of traveling(4 flights) till we’re back in good ol’Utah.
Yesterday was another packed day since it was our only full day in Malaysia. Jared took us to the Batu Caves where you hike up several flights of stairs.

I’m so grateful the weather has been pretty mild the whole time we’ve been traveling. It’s been incredibly humid, but overcast so at least we get a tiny break from the intense heat.
The caves are made out of lime stone and have temples inside for people to worship at. They also have tons of monkeys, chickens, and pigeons ha it was pretty bizarre.

We all took turns feeding the monkeys too. They were pretty aggressive, but if you took only one banana out at a time they wouldn’t attack you!

After the caves we had a late lunch of one of Jared’s favorite dishes. It’s Indian and it was pretty spicy to me, but I loved the naan bread.

We had to check out the KL towers and China town. I finally found a few little things at the market to take home with me.

About Sugar Plum Runner

Welcome to the Sugar Plum Runner! I grew up in WA state, but currently reside in UT with my husband Josh, son Jackson, and 2 daughters Lily and Claire. I love running, but I have never been so inspired to run, race, and blog about it since 4 years ago after I had Jackson. I grew up playing soccer and cheered in high school. My favorite part of both sports(and yes I consider cheer leading a sport) was the conditioning. I found myself running after practice was over on my own. That's when I realized that running may be the sport I really loved.

    Those monkeys are kind of scary to me. But did you ever see the movie entrapment with Catherine zeta jones? Part of it takes place at those towers!

  2. haha dig the sunglasses! That market looks like a lot of fun and great views of Malaysia!
