I love this city so much, the food, the awesome people and the lingo I can understand a bit. I thought about migrating here someday despite the complications of the work permit process.

My one day transit in KL is never better. My late arrival at 2am local time from Delhi airport is not at all an issue because I know everything at KL airport is arrangeable. That includes late-night authentic Malaysian street foods to uncomplicated Uber drivers. I am glad that my trip ran smoothly from Delhi airport to my hotel. Well.. there was a little hiccup in finding my hotel. The hotel has two locations in KL and my driver brought me to the wrong one for which he apologised endlessly.

I was dying to eat nasi lemak and couldn’t sleep it off that night as my brain kept thinking about it and the all the fun stuff to do the next day. I only have one full day to spend in KL so I figured instead of wasting my time walking around in the heat, I hired a spacious airconditioned vehicle including the driver who escorted me to several places such as the twin tower, local
market, mosque, bukit bintang, menara tower, batu caves in just a few hours.

I had a lot of fun touring around that I completely forgot about my local nasi lemak mission. To compensate that, I dined in at a self serve cozy Malay/Indonesian warung (small cafe) across the street from my hotel owned by elderly sweet couple. I filled my plate with many dishes and later found out all that only cost around €5 including krupuk and warm water. The food is so good that there no need for a glass of wine to go with it.

I returned to my hotel feeling satisfied and slept the night peacefully before embarking to Surabaya on the next day. Oh KL, you knew that I will always return to you again and the next time it will be more than a day transit. There will be lots of eating, shopping and visiting other places.
