This is going to be a short post as this is the 3rd time we have been to KL. This time round, we went with a bigger group. There's a total of 17 adults and 5 children for this trip. We booked our tickets and accommodation separately as it is easier to coordinate for each family. We flew with Malaysia Airlines for the first time as it is cheaper compared with other airlines including budget airlines. The reason we took Malaysia Airlines was also because we do not need to think about our baggage size. So each of us brought our own big luggage for this trip as we wanted to shop a lot. 🙂 So do check out Malaysia Airlines for their promotion!
Our hotel is just next to Fahrenheit Shopping Mall and a 5 minutes walk to Pavilion. Though PARKROYAL is usually our chosen hotel to stay in KL, this time we tried ANSA as our other family members wanted to try somewhere else. So we followed the majority and stayed at ANSA. Luckily, the hotel is good and service was also not bad. And we love the fact that Starbucks was just downstairs. We drank Starbucks everyday while we're in KL as we know we won't be able to drink it in Singapore. #halalStarbucksinKL
The itinerary for this KL trip is pretty straightforward. We went to Bangi Sentral - to get our Muslimah wear such as Jubah, Hijab and more on our 2nd day. But this time, the collections in most stores are outdated as they were trying to clear their old stocks so we weren't able to get something nice for ourselves. Then we went to KLCC where there were sales going on so most branded goods were cheaper than in Singapore. For instance, Levis' jeans are sold at half price! Our dad and cousins bought a few for themselves.
On our 3rd day, we went to Damansara Uptown for a short while to get cookies and cupcakes from Wondermilk (//ilovewondermilk.com/). We love their Red Velvet cookies. You should try them if you happen to be around the area.
We walked around Bukit Bintang area mostly so there's nothing much for us to share on. For restaurants, we tried Tony Romas at Pavilion and Boat Noodle at Berjaya Times Square. Both are not bad so you should give them a try! With good currency rate right now, you should really go to KL or any parts of Malaysia for a short trip. 😉
PS: If you need a driver for 10 pax or 14 pax, do email or PM us at Facebook. We have contacts for the driver where the van rental price is affordable. (We do not take any commission from this driver. Just sharing the goodness.)
