A Day Without Elders is Quite Rare

After we got the Elders all delivered to their buses, we were left alone.  That is a pretty strange feeling for us here.  Our Branch Mission Leader, who was born and raised here, called and wanted to know if he could come over and be with us. He is a great young man who we have grown to love, and he enjoys being with us, which is nice.  I asked him if we could get some American food, so he took us downtown to TGI Fridays.  What a wonderful meal!!

You can see from the Halloween decorations, that they do Halloween here too. 

After our meal, Ben took us to see the Sultan's Palace. 
Malaysia is ruled by a Monarchy, so each state has a Sultan, and then there is a King of Malaysia.  The King is changed every few years,  so they don't stay until they die like they do in United Kingdom.
These are pictures of the plaza by the entrance.  The palace is actually through the gates and up on a hill.  We will have to go again during the day so I can get a better look.

This large crown is spectacular at night.  I am so happy Ben brought us here.

There are guards on each side of the gate, but I think they are just mostly for show.  He was happy to have a picture taken with us.
