Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

DAY 3 - Kuala Lumpur

On the night of October 19, we took the midnight bus trip from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur. We rode the starmart bus from the Golden mile complex in SG. To get to Golden mile, we took the train from Simei, got off at Paya Lebar station and transferred to the Circle Line (yellow) and got off at Nicoll highway station, crossed the highway through the overpass then turned right.

We arrived in Kuala Lumpur at about 4:40 am, earlier than our expected arrival. We waited for my aunt and uncle who rode the other starmart bus. It was a bit cold in Kuala Lumpur during early morning. When they arrived, we accompanied them to their transient house, rested for awhile while waiting for the sun to come up then we all left to go to Batu Caves.

After that, Tita Orett and I separated from their group and went to Pacific Regency Suites to check in. Our hotel was easy to find since it is located just in front the KL Tower. We were surprised that one of the Front Office staff of the hotel is a Filipino because he doesn't look like one but he really is. So he gave us a room which have a better view :)

We rested for awhile and ate some snacks in the hotel room then left at about past 3 pm to go to Merdeka Square. So we walked from the hotel to Raja Chulan train station, got off at Bukit Nanas then walked to Dang Wangi station since both stations are within walking distance. From there, we took the train and got off at Masjid Jamek station. Going around Kuala Lumpur is a bit confusing, we always have to stop for awhile, look at the map and discuss where should we should head to unlike in Singapore where everything is organized. You can see lots of signs and you will totally not get lost. It also helps that people there in SG speaks english though some people in Malaysia also can speak decent english. We were nearing Merdeka Square but the area going there was a bit scary and it was also about to rain so we decided not to proceed there.

We decided to head to Central market to buy some souvenirs and ate dinner there as well. Early evening, we  went back to Masjid Majek station and took the train to KLCC to see the famous Petronas twin towers at night. Ever since I was young and still at school, I saw this article about the Petronas towers in an educational journal and I was amazed. That's why seeing it in person was a dream come true for me. The Petronas towers looks majestic by night since it was totally light up. But, it's too hard to take a photo with the whole towers as your background LOL. There were so many tourists there trying their best to find the right position or angle hehe. After that, my aunt and I decided to go back to the hotel since both of us were so tired with all that walking we did.
