Kuala Lumpur. Malaysia.

Kategori: rejser


Kare allesammen, jeg vil fremover primært blogge på engelsk grundet flere og flere venner som ikke forstår dansk…….og I kan jo allesammen forstå engelsk, håber det ikke vil afholde jer fra at fortsat besøge min blog 🙂

Yo and I are back in Cha-Am. Been on a lovely holiday, Kuala Lumpur/Malaysia, a few days in Phuket Town, a one day motorbike trip to a secret lovely beach for and Koh Phi Phi for diving.

Kuala Lumpur was at first sight as most big towns seem to me: confusing. Stayed in a nice hotel in “Little India”, near monorail station Medan Tuanku. Easy to get around.

We started off in familiar surroundings by visiting China Town, not much to say about that, friendly and a lot of street shops with things you don´t need…….so we didn´t buy 😀

Came back just in time for a nice cup of coffee sheltered from a real heavy rain……..very cosy.

Found a lovely Japanese restaurant named Sakata (located in Maju Junction Mall, near Medan Tuanku monorail station). I consider this a must visit if going to KL. Food is excellent (even managed to get a recipe for a dessert from the chef, looking forward to trying it out), not to pricey and foremost a superb service with clever conversation (Z-san & Mimie-san). We loved it so much that we dined 3 out of our 5 nights stay…….would have dined 4, but Sundays they´re closed. Monday, our last night in KL, the guys had set up a private, romantic room with candles a s f. They are really sweethearts and I think of them as friends and very much hope to see them again. Luv.

Had a very good massage downstairs at the same mall. All the masseurs are blind. It was really helpfull to my troubled joints, the lady most certainly new what she was doing. Chinese pressure techniques. Left there very happy!

We spent an afternoon in bird park, that was nice and pretty, you can get very close to some of the birds. Peacocks showing off was fun 😀

Got a pain in my neck  from checking out the Menara Towers (Twin Towers), they´re impressive and also beautiful. Took a stroll (sounds easy, was not, hotalot) to a fantastic park nearby and right next to the KL tower. A lot of different trees, very jungle like in the middle of town. It was really a getaway, kind of surreal when catching a glimpse of the skyscrapers between the trees. Hard work though as there´s hundreds of steps, it goes up and down but it´s well worth the effort. If the stairs are not challenging enough there´s also an outdoor gym at the top, LOL

As Sakata was closed Sunday we took a walk down our neighborhood food hunting. As “Little India” = garlic, it was not easy. Suddenly we were standing outside these two china red old doors: Coliseum Café and Hotel. We entered and voilà, literally stepped into the past century. Tired Chinese staff, very French looking bar/restaurant which has not been redecorated ever. British soldiers used to hang in the bar while Japanese patrolled the street. Lot´s of atmosphere and history. A menu with something for every taste. Food decent not delicious. Staff came to life when asked about the place and proved to be very friendly. A peculiar thing is, that I´m for the first time ever reading a book written by Somerset Maugham and he´s mentioned a lot in the newspaper clippings hanging on the walls in the bar. Turns out it´s quite a famous place, but I didn´t come about it while researching for our trip. Was darned lucky to stumble upon it… 🙂

We did one evening out: The Hard Rock café, live music, a bit of dancing, whiskey…….and lovely company: Joe (biker) and friends. Offshore guys…….there´s oil in Malaysian waters 😀

Thanx to all you guys who made our stay in KL more than memorable! And a very special thanx to the kindhearted stranger in KL airport who gave us money for transport to our hotel, 75 km away at midnight, as all the ATM machines where out of order, WOW!

ADVICE! The ATMs at the airport closes down every night at midnight and for 1 or 2 hours on. So if you arrive at these hours, be sure to carry some cash MYR!!!
