What You Could Get in Kuala Lumpur for $10 – More Than Just the Twin Tower

If you ask me what city I’m most familiar with in any ASEAN countries, apart from Singapore then I will definitely mention Kuala Lumpur for the next. Ever since I visited the capital city of Malaysia for the first time in 2013, I always stop by the city at least once in every year. It could be for the sole purpose of travel, transit, or even work.

No kidding, back when I was working as a flight attendant, I probably flew to KUL more often than most of my Malaysian colleagues. There were times when I even had a week layover in the city. If you asked me whether I’ve ever given up a room at DoubleTree for a university to a dormitory room in a university, my answer is yes I have.

I left my hotel room unoccupied to a dormitory room at UTM, just so I could have a sleepover with Miza during my long layover in the city.

After quitting my job as a flight attendant, I surprisingly travel more frequently. And whenever I get to choose a transit in either Singapore or Kuala Lumpur, more often than not I’d choose the latter. And the city itself will be the one that we cover now. Thanks to Kirsty from World for A Girl who will be sharing her recommendation with us!

The First Date That Led Me To Another First (Also Some Tips To Ease A Blind Date)

I just came back from my recent trip to Malaysia and Singapore, and I’ve come back happily as on this trip, I just got yet another first thing that I’ve done in life.

I mean, sure… There’s always a first time for everything. But I think it’s important to actually explore things rather than just to wonder the what ifs. And for that, I’m quite glad that I’ve got this adventurous soul that opens more chances for me to the idea of something new each day.

I mean, that’s why I’m keeping this to-do-list, so I could remind myself that I need to try as many new things as I can to avoid more regrets in life. So when someone from OKC asked me out when I was in KL, I said yes.

He’s a fine guy. A psychologist who’s running his start-up business, so the fact that we’re both entrepreneurs kind of helps us to hit it off. And the fact that he’s hot… I just couldn’t say no to this invitation.

Review: Capsule by Container Hotel KLIA2

As visiting all 10 ASEAN country members by the time I hit 30 is on my to-do-list, in the past few years I genuinely take the advantage of low-cost carrier in the South East Asia to achieve my traveling goal.

I mean, I’m at that point where it gets somehow dilemmatic as using low-cost carrier means that I have to spend some time for transit in either Singapore or Kuala Lumpur, but then using a full-service airline to fly within ASEAN could be really expensive. But well.

Given the fact that I’m in the love-and-hate relationship with Singapore, I honestly prefer to spend my transit time in Kuala Lumpur as the price there is relatively standard as per Indonesian pocket. It isn’t solely because I used to work for AirAsia that makes me choose AirAsia over any other LCC in South East Asia. *I no longer get paid for writing this, I swear!*
