My Grad School Classmates and I went to Malaysia last March 23 to 26.
Follow my travels and see what happened in KL.
On our third day, we decided to have fun! We already visited temples, museums, galleries and other KL’s National Heritage. So for today, we’re going back to being a kid.
Sunway Lagoon is like an alternate ego of Universal Studio.
First Stop: Airplanes A pretty easy first!
Second Stop: Scream Park A fucking 20 minute walk inside a building full of walking zombies that will scare the hell out of you. We were too wet from our sweat by the time we got out from all the screaming and running and chasing.
Third Stop: Carousel Ride. We decided to try this kiddie ride just to have fresh air dry our clothes. Hahaha.
Fourth Stop: Scream Park Cafe. We ate Nuggets for Lunch.
Fifth Stop: Eagyptian Tea Cups. The Cups are moving in circles, The floor where the cups was moving and the entire floor was moving too. What the fuck did we get ourselves into. It’s like we’re inside a Kaleidoscope. Dizzy.
Sixth Stop: Tomahawk. It’s as scary as hell. It swings from left to right until it turns 360 degrees. So obviously, only the two boys were on that ride. Haha.
Seventh Stop: The Lost City of Gold (in short: Roller Coaster) The two assholes forced us to ride as you can see from our faces.
I loved it! I wanted to have another go at it but Alex doesn’t want to already. I felt empowered after! Haha. But Alex was still afraid.
Ninth Stop: The Entire Waterpark. We practically just passed since we were not prepared to have our clothes soaked in water.
Tenth Stop: Skybridge. From up here, you can see the entire Sunway Lagoon Amusement Park.
Eleventh Stop: Wildlife ( In short, Zoo)
Twelfth Stop: Train. Because we boarded the wrong train, we got stuck for an hour and we literally had the whle train to ourselves. No staff, No driver, No anyone. And yes, we couldn’t leave because the train doors were closed.
Last Stop: Genting Highlands – This is in partnership with Megaworld. The whole place is situated uphill. It’s an hour drive along their expressway. Alter Ego: Tagaytay. It has a very cold weather since it sits on top of a hill. The whole place is like a Gamble Addict Magnet. It’s also a Resorts World.
We stopped by for Milkshake.
Thank you for a great time, Malaysia!
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.
Even at a rush hour, their trains are conveniently spacious. Photo Below: Upon arriving at Kuala Lumpur Station.
First Stop: National Mosque It is one of the most unique mosques in the world. It does not follow the conventional Middle Eastern Mosque design of domes.
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.
Second Stop: TV Station Giant.
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.
Fourth Stop: Lake Gardens.
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.
Fifth Stop: Islamic Arts Museum
Muslims are famous for their colorful patterns. Inside the museum, you will see patterned shirts, tiles, bags, notepads and postcards.
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.
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.
Eight Stop: KL Tower – It is the seventh tallest telecommunication tower in the world and the tallest in South East Asia. It also houses the Revolving Restaurant at the top. Forgive my blurry pictures, we had to take a photo from afar.
Ninth Stop: KL Sentral Again for Dinner before heading back home. Foodcourt at KL Sentral Station
