It is the same hostel than the start of the trip, we liked it!

The Malay Team ready to party!

The rooftop of the hostel, looking good!

Then we met with our Malay bro Ashrul! And he brought us to a super exclusive place called PRIME…check the prices!

We decided this is not our style (yes is not!) and we moved back to the area of the Pub Crawl we didi some days ago, the area of Chankat Bukit Bintang.

Then, our Malay bro Ashrul suggested a different area to party called TREC, so we got his car and go!

The ares is full of bars and also places to eat!

Here with Ashrul and more people!
