Photo Diary: Putrajaya

The third instalment of my Malaysian photo diary goes to Putrajaya!

Putrajaya, officially the Federal Territory of Putrajaya, is a planned city and the federal administrative centre of Malaysia. The seat of government was shifted in 1999 from Kuala Lumpur to Putrajaya, because of overcrowding and congestion in the former. Kuala Lumpur remains Malaysia’s national capital, and is the seat of the King and the Parliament, and is the country’s commercial and financial centre. Putrajaya was the idea of former Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad. It became Malaysia’s third Federal Territory, after Kuala Lumpur and Labuan, in 2001. Wikipedia

Below are some of the photos I snapped while strolling around Putrajaya, enjoy!

Photo Diary: Food Tripping

What is visiting Kuala Lumpur without going for a food trip. And where is the best place for that? None other than the very famous Jalan Alor! Though anywhere in KL is really a heaven for food tripping, but Jalan Alor for me ranks the 1st.

Good thing the place where we stayed in is just a five cartwheels away. So, after a very tiring day we head down to Jalan Alor for our dinner and drinks. I have compiled all the food we ate during our stay in KL, not in the photos are Mee Goring which by the way I finished within 3 minutes, I was too hungry plus its really yum. Egg Prata which the husband had for every breakfast (3 days). According to him, egg prata in KL tastes different from what we get here in SG, which I couldn’t agree more. And oh, finally I got the chance to try their Roti Canai, (Plain Prata here). The look is the same from plain prata but the taste is really different, maybe the way they knead the dough? Not sure.

And lastly, what is visiting KL without dropping at Petronas Tower! As I’ve mentioned in my previous post, its my third time visiting the city, but I always see to it that I have a spare time to drop by to this gorgeous beauty.

Photo Diary: Batu Caves

The husband and I decided to travel to KL for the long weekend, without any itinerary. Anyways we’ve been to KL for 2 times, so we are a bit familiar with the city.

On our first day we decided to head down to Batu Caves, since we almost covered the city from the last time we were there.

What we expect?

We expect, that the stairs would be too high and that their will be a big temple at the top. But in reality, the stairs is really not high. (This is a personal opinion, as the two of us is used of taking high stair cases.) Their is a temple, but not as big as what we thought.

Expect to be greeted by the little creatures (monkeys) while climbing. You can take photo as long as you want, but in my case I didn’t dare, I was too afraid. We saw a lot of people feeding them, though their was a BIG signage that says DO NOT FEED THE MONKEYS! Why can’t they just follow simple rules and instructions?

Below are the some of the photos we took, enjoy!

If you are planning to visit the cave any time soon, I’ve list down some friendly reminders. 🙂

  • I suggest you wear a pants or a maxi skirt (ladies only). For they wont allow you to climb unless you are covered enough. If you don’t want to wear pants or maxis, no worries as you can rent a wrap around for 5RM.
  • Bring extra bottle of water, it is nice to be hydrated all the time while climbing.
  • Observe cleanliness and do not be too loud while you are there, remember its a sacred place for our Hindu brothers and sisters.
  • Lastly, please DO NOT FEED THE MONKEYS.

A Perfect Throwback

Throwback to the last CNY when E and I head down to Kluang Malaysia for a perfect getaway. We decided to stay in a farm resort and be near with Mother Nature. 🙂

We stayed at Kahang Organic Rice Eco Farm (KOREF). This place is perfect for you, if you wish to detached yourself from the “crazy world” you are livin in. 🙂

Sharing with you some of the photos I took while we were at the resort, enjoy!

not all who wander are lost.

KOREF, I had so much fun during our stay. I wish I could go back soon and experience again waking up in the morning in the middle of the rice field :), experience again eating fresh vegetables and fish not to mention the fresh air we inhale every second of the day.

If you wish to detach yourself away from the hustle and bustle city life, you might want to consider staying in KOREF, even just for a couple of days.
