Chinese New Year is one of the most celebrated time of the year in Singapore. Since we were given 3-day vacation, I decided to pursue my first major travel escapade this 2013 to finally see the famous Petronas Tower. Touchdown Kuala Lumpur.
My mode of transportation was very convinient as I can choose between land or air travel from SG to KL. I booked my two-way bus trip & 3D2N hotel accomodation that cost me less than $300 SGD.
I will admit that I had so much preparation for this in terms of my must-do list & ootd (outfit of the day) style over there. LOL!
I even challenged myself for a 250 MR challenge to see what I can eat, buy, & enjoy in KL with that amount. So here were my unforgettable journey in Malaysia.
I arrived at the bus station half an hour earlier to make sure I will not be on a hurry. Buy sadly I still waited for hours boarding not in my exact bus & seat no. due to festive season. So don't forget to bring a lot of patience :)
Another tip: It takes 2 stops (SG & MALAYSIA Immigration) so you need to take down the bus & don't forget your passport to be secured with you. Since it will be a long trip, don't forget to bring some snacks & liquids with you coz in my experience, I never had my dinner so the whole trip my stomach was empty.

|Lively & colorful street arts along the busy streets of KL.
|Along the Little India streets.
|Wanted to try the city tour hop-on hop-off but it was time consuming. You can try this especially when you really wanted to have a tour of the main city.
|Saw this along the Hindu temple where people smash a coconut which I believe was part of a religious practice.
|I used to have this (kalapati) inside a cage when I was a kid, but here you can see them anywhere on the streets.

|Another breath-taking breakfast buffet.
|Went to Genting Higlands & tried the Skyway Cable Car for the first time.
|It was a jackpot when I bought this blue porter bag for only 25 MR.
|I checked out 12nn at the hotel, bought some pasalubong for friends & spent my remaining hours in Starbucks planning for my next 2013 travel plan.
|What I wore on my last day in KL

|Happy Chinese New Year to all.
Hopefully this year I can finally visit Phuket (mid-year) & Korea (year-end). All of this were just a dream before but now I'm just amazed on how it all went to reality. Continue to dream & explore the world my friends. Till my next travel blog post.
