KL Trip, Day 1, 2 & 3
Went to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia 2 weeks ago for a short trip.. Here are the pictures, but I'll start with Day One..
5am, heading to fetch MQ
On the bus to airport
Simple bfast @ the airport
Moments b4 going into transit area..
It's been almost 3yrs since i stepped into the transit area..
kinda cute shop
Sun is coming out juz b4 boarding the plane
Moments b4 take off
Landing @ KLIA
KLIA is KL's new airport
Taxi to KL main city area
Underground highway, which reminds me of the KPE.. But it's kinda small n narrow dat it feels like an underground carpark instead..
Our destination, KL Tower
A Singapore car, with a number plate same as the yr which SG was founded by Raffles
On top of the hill where the KL Tower is situated..
There it is...
On top.. N the view was breathtaking..
More of other towers in the world..
Petronas Twin Towers
Those cliffs are the Batu Caves
The tower's shadow..
Sail-like building structure
Berjaya Times Square in the background
Entrance of the forest trail beside the KL Tower
This is the only tropical rainforest in a major city in the whole world
More decade old trees
Ending of the trail..
Left the place n heading to hotel on taxi..
Berjaya Times Square up close..
Our hotel.. But the room wasn't ready, so we head out after leaving our bags there
Giant Supermarket, went to get some groceries.. lol
Sungei Wang Plaza
The famous restaurant at the mall..
Kim Gary.. There's one outlet in SG too, located at Vivocity
Unique isn't it.. Box with serviette n cutlery..
My iced lemon tea
Her honey lemon
My grilled chicken in black pepper
Her mixed grill.. Our filling lunch only cost RM50 (S$21) in total..
Rooms was ready after lunch n some shopping.. This is by far the BEST hotel i;ve ever stayed in an overseas trip.. at S$120/night, it has almost everything.. There's a comfy reading chair, a business table with internet connection n read on...
KING sized bed... It is huge..
32" LCD TV with international channels
Nice cupboard with ironing facilities
Nice looking toilet..
toilet bowl.. heh
N shower head dat feels like rainfall over ur head..
Hit the streets again once freshen up..
A screen out of nowhere..
Took their train..
Their MRT is not really very "M".. cos i dun think it can carry a huge Mass of people..
Dropped off at Tman Melati, a housing district, n took a cab to Batu Caves..
This is the entrance..
The huge Hindu structure
A Hindu temple..
the 272 steps
Big big statue..
ready for it?
Let's count the numbers..
On the way up..
Go go go..
Eh, she's faster than me n smiling?
On TOP!! As we got higher, the steps got steeper, n i admit it's kinda daunting.. If u slip n fall, it's gonna be a loooong way down.. Anybody watched Kung Fu Panda?
Inside the cave..
This is great for Geographic studies..
Erosion caused the hole..
OMG, more steps???
Mother monkey with baby monkey
Ok let's go down~ It was kinda tiring, but fun..
On the MRT back to Bt Bintang
Back to the city.. this is some new n big building
The Twin Tower is so bright at night dat it lights up the sky..
Went to eat Tze Char..
1st dish butter prawns..
2nd dish, Frog Legs..
Last dish, oyster sauce stir fried veg..
We were famished after the exercising!!
Burp.. All these for juz RM55(S$23), which could easily cost more than S$30 in SG.. N the food were really yummy..
Mine, with powder after the relaxing massage
We head back to hotel in the rain, which broke out juz after we had dinner..
Wad a nice way to end the night... We retired for the day in the fabulous hotel room
Woke up early on Day 2 to haf breakfast. Sadly, we were quite disppointed with the low variety of food in the buffet breakfast. But it's still pretty alright. Maybe our hopes got too high after the fabulous room we got..
Head out of hotel in a cab to Central Market. This is the BIG Puduraya bus terminal in KL
Chinatown, Petaling Jaya
Reached Central Market
Then we came across a Fish Therapy shop n went for a try.. It was our virgin experience!!
The fishes were fucking big, so unlike of those therapy we saw in SG.. I even thought they are Piranas!!
Look at their size!!
Here's a video of our experience..
This is really damn bloody cheap.. In SG, 30min cost S$15 i think..
The fishes were definitely not cute, but they're definitely very hungry for human dead skin
Thank you for cleaning up my feet..
Left Central Market n headed out into the scorching sun..
Went to the nearby Thian Hou Temple
Very nice deco..
Out in the sun again
Went to buy some fake goods..
After getting toasted in the hot sun out there, we proceed to the newest shopping mall in KL, The Pavilion
Christmas deco.. This is seriously a very high class mall, with prices around the same as SG, n shops dat sells top class brands like Gucci, Hugo Boss, Rolex etc etc. Of cos, we didn't buy anything here..
BUT, we had a damn good lunch in the mall at the Sakae Sushi restaurant.. It's lunch hour, n the restaurant is so empty, unlike in SG where it's packed to the brim n we even haf to queue..
Hehe, menu plus calculator..
She takes me
Green tea for each of us
Miso Soup & Chawanmushi
Ebi n Salmon
Salmon Belly.. gosh, this one is heaven..
Softshell crab, a whole big plate of it!
Burp~ Sakae here is soooooo much better.. Their PC ordering system uses touchscreen, unlike the silly SG system where we still use the BALL MOUSE dat barely works.. Service is good too, with the waitress nice n owas smiling.. Total bill was RM63.35(S$27). If we were to order tha same things in SG, it'll probably cost us S$50
Ugly looking outside The Pavilion..
After taking a short nap in the hotel, we finally head into the mall dat's opposite of our hotel..
This tree is much better looking..
It has an indoor amusement park..
Bought movie tickets to watch IP Man, a kung fu film by Donnie Yen my idol.. It was the opening day of the film in KL. Tickets cost RM11(S$4.7) each, compare this to S$8.50 in SG on a same Friday night.. N mind u, the cinema is huge, with nice comfy seats n big leg room. Sound system is damn good too.. I compare this to Golden Village, it's really damn sucky to watch movies in SG..
We head over to LowYat Plaza while waiting for the movie!! LowYat is KL's version of SG's Sim Lim Square!! Hoho, it's heaven to me.. Bought quite some stuffs here..
Even the building's design look like Sim Lim Sq
Our simple dinner from Lowyat.. Still quite full from the yummy sushi late lunch we had.. This cost RM1.99 each
Went back to hotel n changed into more warm clothes b4 going for the movie.. IP Man is a very very good film.. Do watch it if u haven't.. The fighting scenes are breathtaking.. After the movie, we retire for the day n awaits an exciting 3rd day~!
And finally, to the last day of our trip. We woke up pretty early to have breakfast n then went to Puduraya Bus Terminal to get our return bus ticket from Genting Highlands. Yes, we'll be heading there to gamble in the casinos!!
It was a nice n bright Saturday morning..
Took a cab up the highlands for RM80(S$34.20)
After an hour of cab ride, we reached the top of the mountains..
Yes, the place has quite low visibility due to the clouds.. Basically, we were in the clouds~!
Inside... We went straight for the casinos, our virgin experience.. haha.. N we lost RM50 b4 we call it quits n went for lunch
Had Mac, which costs the same as SG
We went for a walk outdoors after lunch to enjoy the freezing temperature..
It's blur everywhere..
I could barely see the top of the hotel
Does this look like a haunted house in story books?
We love the weather
Outdoor theme park..
Looking down the mountain
Hotels in clouds
Who says u can't live in the clouds?
time's up n we had to leave the mountains.. Took the cable car down.. It was my first ever cable car ride..
Here's a video of the cable car descending
then we took a bus back to KL
Passed by the Batu Caves
Back in KL~!!
I brought the clouds down with me!!
KL Ekspres, their new train to KLIA.. ticket costs RM35 for each..
Boarded the train
Along the way~
Oil Palm plantation owned by Sime Darby
Reached the airport n a nice sunset bidded farewell to us..
We were in such rush to catch the plane dat we could only haf enuff time to share this Beef Bolognese from Delifrance..
Thank god we reached on time..
Inside the place b4 take off
Touched down safe n sound.. Felt hungry n went to Simpang Bedok for some snacks b4 sleeping in our own beds for the 1st time in 4 days~! It has been a very fulfilling trip..
