kuala lumpur city guide for those who frequently make unplanned trips like i do. it was in kaizen coffee shop one morning when me and my colleague, sipping on our cup of jo, booked our flight to KL for the weekend. now let’s talk about impromptu decision disorder.
since we only had one night we took the earliest flight out,
but first, coffee.
#take: airport taxi to the city center
one thing i immediately noticed about KL was that there were so much green everywhere.
#stay: furama hotel bukit bintang
after checking in at our hotel i took advice of some of my local friends and headed over to a cafe nearby to grab a quick bite and refill my caffeine tank.
#see: petronas twin tower
did you know tower one was built by a japanese company and tower two by korean? just fyi, i heard the koreans “won” the race.
#drink: sky bar at traders hotel
#bar-hop: changkat, bukit bintang
you know, we had this all planned out. we were gonna put on this cute animal sheet mask from korea and take oh-so-adorable selfies in our hotel room to post on our instagrams… i’m not sure what went wrong in the process of manufacturing these masks but the sheep turned out to be jigsaw’s relative and pig like a devil i never want to see in my dream. #ohthehorror
#see: national mosque
sweet, salty and strange. oh what are thou.
probably my second favorite design from starbucks.
#cafe-hop: boxes cafe bbcc
… annnnd this is how our trip came to an end. with cupcakes in our mouth and tears in our eyes. you know, it’s truly a rare thing to find a person who you can call a great travel companion. cos more often times than not travelling can bring out the worst in a person. you know that’s the case when you spend most of the time trying so hard not to pull all of your hair out (or theirs). frankly i’m quite picky when it comes to choosing people i genuinely enjoy spending my time with. so when i come across a relationship like this, i can’t help but feel so blessed and thankful for the opportunity that allowed our path to cross in such way.
