Short Getaway to Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia)

09/03/2010 - I am going to post about my experiences during my trip to KL. - Do stay tune for updates. Currently sorting out the photos taken during the trip, so I will need sometime to upload them, then post here to share with everyone. 10/03/2010 - Updated facebook album - Day 1 of the trip updated Coming Soon (Day 2 of the trip) - Will tell you about how to go Cameron Highland (As most of the sites are outdated)
Day 1 - Raining Day! (SGD to RM rates @ 2.38) Our flight is from 1300hrs, so we reached KLIA (LCCT) at around 1415hrs. The budget terminal was REALLY budget. We then took a cab from LCCT to Berjaya Times Square (Asia's Largest Amusement Park in Shopping Mall). The journey took us a good 1hr 30mins, so by the time we reached KL (Time Sqaures) it's around 1600hrs. We checked in to a hotel (Orkid Hotel, near to Times Sqaure). The hotel rate is 108RM (S$45) per night. Well, it is somehow still reasonable given that Times Square rate is far more steeper. Should we consider lucky ? Once we checked in to the hotel, it started raining cats and dogs with thunderstorm. Or should we consider unlucky ? Because we intend to hunt for some nice food around our hotel area, but the rain stopped us from doing so. So we waited for the rain to stop, then took some photos in the hotel room. (Below, 2 image) Hotel room photos (Below) What a sexy pose huh ? We went to Vivo @ Times Square for our dinner after the rain had stopped. The food was "WOW" and also at an acceptable price. 4 of us spent a total of 103RM for a sumptuous meal. After movie, we went to catch a movie at only 10RM per ticket. We end our day after the movie, because it is already 11pm. On our way back to hotel, we patronized this small shop selling Teochew Porridge. It is the best Teochew porridge I've ever ate and only spent 8.50RM (2 Person). The best deal in town. 8.50RM for Tau Gua, Peanuts, Tau Pok and braised egg. Day 2 - Sunny Day! (SGD to RM rates @ 2.38) To be updated again ............................
