Part of the travel incentive I got was a trip to Malaysia. It was a beautiful ride by bus for about 6 hours coming from Singapore. In the Philippines, that’s like travelling from Davao City to Cagayan De Oro City. The difference is that you’ll see mountain ridges here while travelling in a zigzag road. In Malaysia, it’s all flat land planted with Palm trees. I shared about it in my previous blog.
We arrived in Kuala Lumpur, around 4pm. Mr. Singh and our bus driver, immediately brought us to the King’s Palace. Of course, tourists are not allowed to go inside. Too bad huh? But they’ll give you a chance to take photos with the palace guards, who by the way, are like mannequins because they are not allowed to move while on duty.
They also assigned 2 guards for picture-taking purposes. So John and I waited for our turn to pose with them for a souvenir photo! That’s why when you’re on vacation, make sure that you have your camera with you. An extra battery. And an extra memory card. Photos can be transferred in the laptop too, if you don’t mind bringing an extra luggage. Chances are, if you’re like me, you’ll go crazy taking pictures with everything you see! I got more than 600 pictures on a one week trip. haha
After the King’s Palace, our guide brought us to downtown Kuala Lumpur for dinner in a chinese restaurant. But on the way there, we made several stops again to…. take pictures, of course!
Petronas Towers, at sunset.
The next day, our tour guide brought us to Petronas Towers. We were not able to go on top because they reached the limit already. They only allow 200 people every 6 in the morning and 6 in the evening. So if you really want to go to the ledge, make sure you go there 2-3 hours ahead of time to avoid the long line.
I was still very happy because I was able to get an amazing shot of the tower. Plus they got lots of shops to visit in the mall.
