A weekend escapade to Kuala Lumpur

Saturday, March 13th, 2010

We left in the morning of Friday and took a 5-hour coach ride that brought us right into the city of Kuala Lumpur.

We arrived at around 2 o’clock in the afternoon and walked to our hotel at Traders’.

We got a great room, again! After leaving our stuff in the room, we went for our afternoon tea at the lounge. Pastries and cookies, we relished!

After a short rest in the hotel room, we had our cocktail in the lounge. Lovely snacks were served.

I had a sip of this strange thing and I didnt like it. It was coffee and whiskey, I think. I had a fruit punch instead, and truly enjoyed the sweetness more.

We went for a walk at Petronas Towers shopping mall, also known as Suria KLCC. We saw this setup at one of the floors. Alice in the Wonderland!

We turned in early for the evening following the short shopping trip at Suria KLCC. In the morning of Saturday, we had international buffet breakfast at the hotel’s restaurant. It was nice.

After breakfast, we walked to KLCC Aquaria, which is an underwater park located about 50 steps from our hotel room. There was a queue and a lot of noisy kids. Pff.

The underwater park was smaller than I had expected and before we knew it, we were at the souvenir shop. I was a bit disappointed that there was no real penguin at the underwater park and the disappointment lasted for as long as it took to find a fake one. Tada~

Look, a sad turtle…

We went to Pavilion shopping mall for a little tour. It is located about 100 steps from our hotel.

I love the purple lion. It must be one of those rare colours for a lion because they are usually red in colour! It was a pretty tiring day for us. We went back to our hotel for our afternoon tea at the lounge, and later, our cocktail at the same place.

On Sunday morning, we had breakfast at the lounge instead of the hotel’s restaurant.

After breakfast, we walked to Times Square shopping mall. That was my first time there.

The place is so huge. I am really amazed by the endless shopping stores in there, and guess what? There is even an indoor theme park!

We had a relaxing afternoon sipping coffee at the Starbucks cafe in the shopping mall, and on our way back to our hotel, we had lunch at A&W’s.

We skipped afternoon tea on that day and proceeded to rest in the room, watching tv and reading our books. We could have kicked up some fuss and argued as per holiday normal but we were good and we didnt. It was a lazy afternoon. We went to the skybridge for a while before it started raining heavily. I hadnt noticed earlier that the pool at the skybridge is not sheltered.

The rain was getting heavier and we could feel it on us even though we were away from the pool. It was cocktail time so we decided to go to the lounge instead and had a slow afternoon enjoying the snacks there.

In the evening, we did a bit of shopping at Suria KLCC before we called it a day. On the morning of Monday, we had breakfast at the hotel’s restaurant before we left for home.

Oh did I mention that we had a great room, again? I simply love the view! Check out the pictures I took of Petronas Tower at different time, from our room!
