After lunch, we proceeded down the street to the National Mosque and since there was a service happening, we went to an Islamic Arts Museum across the street which had models of lots of mosques.
We went to the National Mosque after prayers were finished, there wasn't much to see
A Malaysian of Chinese ethnicity who is a volunteer to talk to the tourists chatted us up about Islam, providing a rough introduction. It was curious that he sounded defensive the whole time and comical when he explained that the Quran can only be understood in the original Arabic and then admitted that he himself doesn't speak the language.
It started raining while we were there and we caught a taxi over to the Golden Triangle, a major shopping area. They had cool National Geographic posters set up in one of the department stores.
We went to a nearby night market, Jalan Alor, and got some good food, including some delicious fish. Walked around some more and took a skytrain back to the hotel.
