First day in KL was our city tour with our fluffy friend Victoria. We tried archery, ate authentic local foods, visited a Chinese temple, and the beautiful Petronas Towers. Then at night we had the chance to experience KL night life food trip. That was one of my fullest days ever(fat mode on).
Second day we found ourselves wandering outside the city proper, with our badass friend Koo/Balang and this crazy-good russian/korean girl Sonya. We visited an Indian temple, fed a lot of obedient and friendly monkeys, visited a fisherman village, and tried their seafood dishes by dinner. Last and best thing we did for that day was the firefly watching. It was raining then but it didn’t seem to bother the fireflies. They looked like stars in the night sky, not so flashy, quiet, solemn, beautiful.
Third day we dipped in on of the infamous yet spell-bounding falls in KL. Only a few knows about it said our friend Koo. In the afternoon we went to the iconic and truly photogenic Batu Caves. Last stop was the Masjid Wilayah, you’ll gonna learn a lot about Muslim culture in there.
Want food? KL’s Nasi Lemak is a must-try! In the case of the city streets and public transport KL is way better than my Philippines. But with regards to the people I’d go for Filipino’s specially when you’re at KL Chinatown. In there are a lot of Indian-looking guys, no offence but their stare is very intimidating, like they’re looking at you like they got a problem with you or something LOL. This is how most of us felt, I even asked a number of tourists and this is their only negative comment. But don’t be alarmed though, it’s just their stare, all in all it’s all good 🙂
We just felt so lucky and blessed as an angel treated our stay in Marina Bay Sands. I mean, WHAT!!! I still can’t believe I’ve checked in there. It was a badass but plainly expensive hotel. But I just fell in love with their infinity pool. Overlooking the bay, under the stars, over the city lights, it was a nice spot to think about stuff :))
The Merlion was small(it looked so large in pictures)! Walking around the Bay area was nice. People smiling everywhere, clean environment, it was plain superior good vibe. It was also my first time to ride a Chrysler and it’s a taxi in SG!
The Gardens by the Bay was plain beautiful. The combination of nature and human intelligence can really produce beautiful results.
Leaving Marina Bay, as I sat near the entrance/exit I only saw a few happy faces, maybe because most of them were just there for business. But staying at a very expensive yet awesome hotel, yeah, happiness and money just ain’t proportional. And for some it’s like they treated it as a social climbing vicinity, and that’s just sad.
