Sunday, 20th January 2019 I've requested a visit to the Forest Research Institute of Malaysia (FRIM) this morning. R was pleasantly surprised that I had wanted to pop by to FRIM as part of my tour. This was where he had spent much of his childhood days whenever his family wanted a picnic excursion. We were up by 6.50 am this morning where FRIM was just a short ride away from his home. It was chilly at this time of the day as we proceeded with our walk to the picnic grounds and waterfall. The air smelt fresh and the tranquil surroundings plus the huge trees made it a pleasant visit. After our huge serving of wanton noodles, we went back to his apartment to continue with our rest before heading out for a massage at ... read more

Saturday, 19th January 2019 My Jetstar flight journey to Kuala Lumpur (KL) did not start as well as I hoped as it was delayed for a good 40 minutes this morning. I was on my way to visit R at his hometown for the weekend. R had recently relocated back to KL for good and we had been talking about this trip for a while now. It was good that we finally managed to put the trip together. My first visit to the city was some 21 years ago back in November 1998. We stayed over for a week at some friend's house in Petaling Jaya and it was during the trip that I took my maiden flight overseas. Arrival at the KLIA 2 terminal today was a breeze. There were no hiccups at the customs ... read more

The last time I was in Kuala Lumpur, I was confined to a bed with a bad back for almost a week. We had to skip a trip to Borneo (Sarawak) to see the famous orangutans. I was happy to get well enough to fly home, after Sheri nursed me back to some decent functionality. I have since had a minor back operation, and no worse for wear. The main reason to re-visit KL is our friend Angela. She is a friend of a friend, Sohbee and Tom, now residing in Shanghai. She showed us around KL after Sohbee moved to China, after a short time in the U.S. Besides her skills as a chef and baker, she is quite knowledgeable about KL, and its finer (not necessarily expensive) places to dine. However, I would suspect ... read more

Kuala lumpur nikdy nesklame. Fajn mesto na relax, vsetko potrebne k zivotu po ruke. Opat som navstivil moju oblubenu botanicku zahradu s bambusovym domcekom vo vzduchu kde som si pekne povegetil. Nocne petronasky s fontanou ok ale zas nic extra velke. Bukit tabur prijemne prekvapil. Cesta tam vsak narocna, isto to neodporucam zelenacom a uz vobec nie ako vylet s detmi. Treba sa tu splhat po skalach ale vdaka lanam je to v pohode. No a este upozornenie, vstup sem je zakazany ale ludia tam i tak chodia. Zaciatok trialu je na google mapach, da sa ist na vrchol aj cez sukromny pozemok ale bude treba zaplatit (chlapik chcel 4rm) a clovek pride asi o ¾ narocneho trialu. Najnarocnejsi usek je vsak samotne splhanie na vrchol. No ani nie splhanie ale skor lezenie dole. Jeden chybny ... read more

Rano opat budicek nieco po 9.00 a v plane nic nerobenie v lobby a vybehnutie kuknut blizku cast dataran merdeka (len nech mi ubehne cas) Este pred odchodom na zachod som aktivoval cs appku. Po prichode najskor handrova hlava ale furt len vypisovala, realne sa asi ani stretnut nechcela. No potesila sprava od uzivatela menom lenka. Kukam profil a slovacka. Behom par minut doladene podrobnosti a uz masirujem na metro. Len nevyhoda je, ze to je uplne daleko. No nevadi konecne zas stretnem nasho hovoriaceho cloveka. Ak ma pamat neklame bude to este len druhy slovak. Prvy a na dlho posledny boli stredoslovaci vo vychodnom timore. Cestu poznam bo idem rovnakou linkou ako predvcerom ked som bol na turistike. Prichadzam na miesto stretnutia, cs sa nehlasi. A kurva, zbytocna cesta teda. Davam jej 15.min, nastastie sa ... read more

Ha tak v cene ubytka su aj ranajky zrejme. Bo ludia tu jedli toasty. Ono som dnes do ulic vyrazil az nieco po 9.00. Nuz ranajky si ale davam u poulicneho predajcu v chinatowne v takej mini ulicke. Vajcove roti a nesmie chybat caj. Chodniky su uz v tejto stvrti konecne dorobene. Stanicou pasa seni sa dostavam k mesite a smer moja oblubena botanicka zahrada a bambusovy domcek. Kde sa ukladam na asi 4hod spanok. Pri stanici nesmeli chybat zebraci. Dost indov len tak spalo na zemi na kartonoch. V parku dost ludi. Policajti na konoch, fotiaci sa svadobcania a mladez tu tocila daku reportaz. Po riadnom odpocinku okolo posty na central market. Tu nic zaujimave len kopa ludi a stanky. Klasicka zastavka u inda na pivo a hned vedla indicka restika. Na ubytku spocitana indonezia. ... read more

Dnesny ciel je zakazana turistika na bukit tabur. Ranajky davam u indov na rohu pri chrame. Odtial presun na metro stanicu masjid jamek. Cestou som chcel kupit vodu ale vsetko zavrete (pred 8.00) resp obchodiky na druhej strane cesty. Mensi problem s nakupom zetonu na metro. Na mape bola znacena trasa ako cervena, no v automate ako ruzova. Najvacsi peniaz to bralo 5rm. Metro riadne napraskane ale skoro vsetci vystupili pri kllc. Potom prakticky prazdnou supravou az na stanicu wangsa maju. Tu som chcel zobrat grab ale zadna free wifi. Nuz som si cca 5km odslapal popri hlavnej ceste. Samozrejme po chodniku. Konecne nachadzam obchodik s vodou. Okolie nic zaujimave. Nizke domy. Obcas pri ceste stanky s jedlom a napojmi. Ako som sa blizil k zaciatku trialu (na google mapa je oznaceny) tak sa mi naskytal ... read more

Noc totalne nahovno. Po kyblovej sprche prakticky za 5.min hned spoteny. Ranajky ubohe, len toasty s dzemom a caj. V lobby teplo, tak som sa na to vyprdol a rukami som neanglicky hovoriacemu recepcnemu ukazal na auto a naznacil lietadlo. O par minut uz sedim v aute a smer 5km vzdialene letisko. Pri vstupe sa plati poplatok za auto. Vodic ode mna pytal 6k, dal som mu 4k, i ked recepcny vravel, ze odvoz je zdarma. Nech sa s nima zadrhne. Pred vstupom postavalo kopa ludi, ktory blokovali vstup do haly. Sak jebnuty moslimi. Prva security opat problem s gelom na holenie. Ale prechadzam aj s vodou. Net rychly, tak cakanie pri domacich branach. Brana c.7 pre medzinarodne odlety (2 za den, singapur a kl) sa otvara cca hodinku a stvrt pred odletom. No otvara. Security ... read more

Ono tu prakticky ani neni co hodnotit. Mal som tu len stopover na dve noci. Botanicka zahrada opat nesklamala. Je tu aj freenet na hodinu (pri jazere), dost rychli a dalsi free neobmedzeny cas pri amfiku. Bol som omrknut aj petronasky. Nic sa tam prakticky nezmenilo. Nabuduce tam ale pojdem kuknut vecer, na to som dost zvedavy. Mal som aj jedno stretko s cs ale nic extra to nebolo akurat som navstivil cast taman dagang. Nic tam zaujimave neni i ked dost chudobne bytovky ale to bol len jeden blok. Ubytko Chinatown Foot Reflexology & Massage - 2dorm, share sprcha. ubytko ako aj minule len uz s novym nazvom a novym majitelom. Potesilo, ze tu furt bol honza, inak nic dobre. Sprcha tece furt nahovno a net prakticky ani nesiel. Nabuduce sa poobzeram po niecom inom. ... read more

Our honeymoon started with a long drive to Melbourne to catch our Air Asia flight from Melbourne to Kuala Lumpur. We had a night stay planned in Kuala Lumpur as we both love KL and I wanted to show Todd ALOFT, my favourite hotel in KL. ALOFT is centrally located at the KL Sentral train station. You can get the express train from the airport direct to this station and it takes 25 minutes as opposed to an hour in a taxi. It is an expensive ride at 55RM per person (about the same as a taxi) but its quick and easy so my preferred option. Once we arrived in Melbourne we unloaded the car then headed to a local Italian restaurant which was a 2 min drive from our hotel. I had a Ceaser salad ... read more
