Birthday in Kuala Lumpur

It was a last minute plan to visit Kuala Lumpur on the 25th of January. We purchased the ticket the night before our departure. We took First Coach bus and the fare was 33SGD. Bloody hell! It took us five hours to reach Kuala Lumpur. I was with my bestfriend and his girlfriend. Maybe you're wondering why I don't have a partner with this trip. Well, it's a long story and I don't want to elaborate it anymore. Anyway, we checked in for a twin bed in the Corus Hotel in KL at around 10:30PM. We took a quick dinner inside our room and immediately left the hotel for the night photoshoot with the famous Petronas Tower and it was only 2 minute walk from our hotel.

When we got outside the hotel, it was raining!!! The heck! It was the only night we can view the Petronas Tower as we planned to spend only one night in the city and return to Singapore. Best was kinda mad because he was too worried on his SLR camera. We waited for a while outside the KLCC mall for the rain to stop. It suddenly stopped and gave our full energy to take a quick picture with the famous tower. The camera and the tripod were prepared and we took about 4 shots and it started to rain again so we didn't have a choice but to thank God at least we had a nice shots, we just returned to hotel to sleep.

The next day, we woke up around 9 in the morning and took our breakfast. We had sandwich and Nesvita inside our room. Afterwards, we went to KLCC mall to walk and made a quick shopping. We just toured the mall and I bought Starbucks city mug for my collection. I also bought some items inside a souvenir shop. We also did a quick view on the Petronas Discovery Centre.

We returned to the hotel before 12 noon to check out. After the check out I treated them inside the restaurant of the hotel. It was my birthday on that day and at the same time, it was the Chinese New Year! The restaurant in the hotel was having a 50% discount for their buffet! Wohoooo!!! There were plenty of foods and we all enjoyed it! We spent almost 3 hours to fulfill our cravings. We had this authentic Malaysian foods and the cakes, fruits and ice cream were superb! It was adiet another day moment.

After that uber busog lunch, we left to make our final shopping and we found ourselves in this place where souvenirs and other Malaysian items were very cheap. Afterwards, we went to Berry's Chocolate factory and of course, I bought some chocolate. Because of the rush hour, we just returned to KLCC Mall for a quick tour and shopping again. Then we went back to the view for Petronas tower for another photoshoot. The time was very short as we had to leave for our 6:45 departure, again with bus but that time it was the Aeroline Bus. Even if it was just a one day tour in the city, at least we enjoyed and it was another experience during my birthday. I'm not getting any younger anymore so I am enjoying my life with plans this year on more and more travel! Hehehe...
