It's been a while since my last visit to Malaysia.
I remember that my last visit before this trip was in 2006 -__- *feel so out-of-date*
Finally I visited Malaysia again December last year, woo-hoo! ^.^
Though Malaysia is near to Indonesia, I haven't any chance to visit Malaysia (again) these past years XD
My trip was running on 10-14 December 2013 and my travel mates are my elder sister, and my sister's friends from Bandung and Jakarta ^.^
Yeah I know, finally I blog about my travel story in Malaysia 7 months later..
What a great procrastinator, am I? LOL :p
|I forgot the exact name of this place.. I was at somewhere near Pavillion Mall :p|
Are you ready to read my travel story?
|My favorite menu (all the time!) in Malaysia: Nasi Lemak ♥♥|
I also met my Malaysian friend ^.^ Kinna kindly picked up us on KLIA and accompanied us on first day!
Thanks a lot, my dear friend! :D Hopefully we can meet again next year! ♥
My travel mates: Lady, Wenie (my elder sister), Maret, Cier and Dustin :)
Ahemm *clear my throat*. Because I hardly remember the details of my trip, I will talk about spots I've visited in Malaysia :D So, grab your popcorn or and your coffee, because this post will be quite long :p
Need to know
Malaysia has various of public road transportation. Beside of taxi, there are bus, RapidKL, KTM Komuter, Express Rail Link. You will come across KL Sentral often if you are planning to have backpacker trip. KL Sentral is the center of all road transportation :) For details, you can read HERE.
I must say that as a developing country, Malaysia has nice transportation system and so well-organized! Indonesia need to learn from Malaysia about transportation system '___'
Most of Indonesians still prefer to use private transportation (like motorbike or car) rather than public transportation.. you know why..
1. Petronas Twin Towers
After checked-in into our hotel, and going to our first destination in rush, I forgot to bring my Samsung NX300 T___T I ended up by borrowed my sister's pocket camera and unfortunately it can't capture objects in low light properly.. so yeah.. My photos were quite blurry >___<
Route: KL Sentral - Masjid Jamek - KLCC
Oh hello Petronas Twin Tower! :) Petronas Towers, or also known as the Petronas Twin Towers are twin skyscrappers in Kuala Lumpur. Petronas Twin Towers is used to be this country tourism mascot as well :)
This world's tallest twin towers soaring 88-storey and 451.9 metres high is located in the heart of KL.
Location Address: Kuala Lumpur City Centre, 50088
The best shot of mine, LOL XD I wish I bring my camera or should've coming to this spot in the morning or afternoon.. So outdoor natural lighting will works better to my photos T_T
In front of Surya Plaza, still near Petronas Towers. Me and my awkward pose, LOL XD
Snapped another photo with Kinna ;)
This is my elder sister ^_^ Do we slightly look alike? Haha
This is my 2nd time being in Genting :) Genting is located quite far from KL, it is located in Highlands Pahang. We need to go there by bus or car. My team went there by Go Genting Express, with 60 RM each person ^-^ Included Skyway Transfer ticket and Indoor Theme Park Ride ticket, pretty decent!
Route: KL Sentral - Ride Go Genting Express
|Terminal schedule / Jadual terminal / Jadwal Terminal di KL Sentral|
|Genting Skyway Transfer (a.k.a kereta gantung)|
|Inside the Skyway Transfer. My eyes are irritated yesterday, so I didn't wore contact lens at the moment '____'|
Sadly, Outdoor Theme Park is currently under renovation till next year T____T We only can play around Indoor Theme Park. Well, some of us never been this place before, so we were still excited!
|Ready to play? ;)|
Our first destination inside The Indoor Theme Park is Snoworld. A place where you can play with snow with very low degrees degrees, imagine that you're being somewhere in Atlantic XD
Sadly we were not allowed to bring any camera inside the Snoworld, so we only could took pictures outside the large fridge :p LOL. Inside the large fridge is so friggin' cold and I was like freezing! >___<
I always love the Christmas decorations in Malaysia ^___^ So pretty and dazzling. Luckily we still can snapped some pictures before leaving Snoworld.
Another kind of roller coaster :p
The little Prince Haunted Mine
Took last picture before leaving Genting
|Hilarious collaged pictures of my sis, three wise monkeys! :p See no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil|
These are selected photos from Genting's adventure ^.^ If you like a theme park, you should visit Genting for sure! I recommend you to visit Genting next year, after renovation of Outdoor Theme Park has finished :p
3. Central Market
Central Market or Pasar Seni, is the best place to buy souvenirs for your relatives and friends! :)
You can reach this place by Taxi or walking from KL Sentral
Address Location: Jalan Hang Kasturi, 50050 Kuala Lumpur,
Wilayah Persekutuan, Malaysia
You can find a lot of unique stuffs here. The prices also relatively affordable :) Malaysian signature chocolates are available in Central Market as well. I bought some souvenirs for my family and friends ^.^
I also got my watch here ^.^ I got mine in RM 10. Looking for better option? There are miniatures of Twin Towers, unique poker deck, t-shirt and so on! Bargaining is a must :p
For me, this was great trip! Gonna continue my stories on the next post ^.^I got a lot of experiences and learned many things from this trip :)
Hopefully this short travel story will inspire you to visit Malaysia again ^.^
See ya on the next part!
