Another day, another train. We went straight to KL Sentral Station. Just like here in the philippines, some stations has mall. And this station, KL Sentral has its own mall. In the photo below, this is where the train station is. You can ride and MRT, LRT or a Monorail from this point.

For our entire stay in KL, We stopped by to almost every food trucks on the way because we can’t have a proper meal. So in food trucks, you’ll basically see fish balls, squid, squid balls, nuggets, shawarma, soft drinks, juice and chrysanthemum drinks.

Third Stop: National Planetarium It’s for free. But if you’re into planetary, space, stars and constellation person, you might want to pay an extra 12 RM for their galaxy show. If you are planning to go here, better hire a car and a driver. It’s an awfully big compound that houses the Planetarium, Islamic Arts Museum, National Museum, Bird Park and the Lake Garden. I basically lost 5 gallons of sweat from an all day intense walk.

Before heading to the next destination, we tried to find a food stall. Unfortunately, they don’t offer rice. So we settled for Kikiam, yet again. We haven’t eaten anything since. Gaaah.

Sixth Stop: Batu Caves – It’s a limestone hill that consists of caves and cave temples. It is 100 m above the ground so we had to climb 272 steps. We did. But damn was it too tiring. There was nothing majestic about it when you reach the top. The inside of the cave was already commercialized. It’s too bad. They should’ve preserved it and kept it holy.

DSC06186  Seventh Stop: The very Famous Petrons Tower. – It once was the world’s tallest building at 452 meters. It has 88 floors. It also features a Skybridge at the 41st and 42nd level. It is considered as the highest 2 storey brige in the world. Now this one, you cannot miss. The building magically lights up the place – no exaggeration here.

As the day ends, we try to sit comfortably while our wallets are crying, our backs dead and are toes swollen. DSC06218
