To reach the destination, we had to go by a cable car locallyy calleddd as a gaanola.... It was a very long rope way, extremely cloudy and thunderstormy weather.. It looked very scary.. But the view was great.. We were in the middle of the clouds... And it was raining heavily it wad a very wierd feeling....gondola moved with every gush of air passing which made the ride even more frightening... But loved the way.. N again felt really amazed as to how these were constructed.... At such hights and in this uneven terrains.......
Wooooooooaaaah these caves are really gigantic, and the sculpture in front(i dont knoe which god it represents) but it was soo huge that its hight almost reached the caves top... These cave were truely a great creation of nature..... Formed by the flow of water loved the caves... And was truely amazed by the beitiful rock cuttings and the caves intirior...
There were several pigeons at the entrance... Who were eating grains from the hands of pleople truely this was a very great sight...
The temple had very high and steap slopes... These were too many hit really tired while trying to climb up... Its was a challenging task.. Luckily we could keep our bags in taxi....batu caves had temples of indian gods... Which really amazed me.. But the people were more interested in the caves creation rather than the temple...
Half way there to the genting Highland our final destination.. Can see the hotel in the clouds.. Soo amazing... Its overcast weather, and the destination is into the clouds.. Too excited to see the view from uo there... Though the place is under construction, hope weill enjoy...
Half way we stoped to buy the indian food... Coz we were missing it soo bad
Driver Ali, though provided transport for cheap but the places he took us was all where the transportors get commission to bring tourists... Though we were well informed about the place n didn't buy anything.. Driver frankly did told us about the he getting commission, and asked us to cooperate...
He took us to a honey factory
A leather factory
2 chocolate factory
And a watch factory
Thiugh it was a timewaste but we did enjoy at the chocolate factories.... Because we got to try all the chocolates.. Yumm had them all and headed to the batu caves...
More about batu caves
Sadly today it was our last day at the beautiful barjaya times hotell... Did not wanted to check out from the hotel..i wish we could live here forever, the beutiful view and the interior... Truely awsme... Today we have to leave for the genting Highland... And visit batucaves on the way...
We have booked a taxi from a guy named Ali whi has said he would take us to few more spots.. I dnt knoe where we are heading... Lets seee...
22 May 2017
Reached the hotel early.. We got time to play a bit of table-tennis and squash..
I never new my dad was so good at table-tennis... He defeated me 20-22 and even my brother(who playes tt regularly) enjoyed a lot with family.. N went back to our room
After leaving the park, we took a bus to the kl central, a spot near a hotel.. But don't know why we got down at little india, without any reason... This was no where in our planed itenary...
But the place was really awsome... Its just 3 days out of the country but started missing india... The place was truely indian... The people food.. N even few vegetable vendors..it felt like we were in india... N i loved that feeling...and this weird decision also turned out to be a great one as finally we ate a veg indian food meal..( Dal chawal n roti) wooaah felt like we had a proper meal 1st time in these days...was bit fed up of the malasian flavour(every thing is sweet and they dont use salt)...
After the water park we headed towards the extreme park, this was a great fun there were several new activities tried.. Had a shot at the paintball station... Though wasnt wearing my spectacle soo i dnt know what did i shot on...
Then we had trampoline jumping using harnesses....there was also archery... We did tried that and had a great fun...
There was also flaying fox which i really wantef to try but the que was sooo long that it would hav taken minimum 2 3hrs for the turn...tried a bit of water slides and headed back... Unfortunately to our bad bungee jumping and the g force was out of order soo we couldnt try that.... Then we left the park... Though didn't felt the park was worth the pay.. Bt was a great experience...
Soo... Finally after a heavy meal and in heavy rain we headed towards the water park... Unfortunately we couldn't carry our phones there soo no photos available to support the entry... It was not that great as it was expected... Only the wave beach was truely awsme but it lasted only half n hour... Played bit of beach volleyball with a team of various people from around the world.... My broken thumb nail did trouble a bit in the pool but it was fine....
After the wildlife park we decided to have lunch we sat down at a indoor kfc.. N the rain started,luckily next in our list was the water park soo rain didnt made much of a difference to us...
Wild life park
Then we continued our journey into the wildlife park... This was one of the major segament of Sunway lagoon.. There were sevaral species of animals and birds, they even told about the various habits of animals their natural habitat living style and there nature... It was a great exoerience and learned a lot about various animals...
After the amusement park we headed towards the scream park... It was really a great experience... Bht there was no camera allowed.... It had a long que but felt it was totally. Worth it... It was 30min long walk inside several zones with zombies, pallbearers, caged ghosts.. And to add to that a horror sound in the background... It totally scared me up... There were zombies jumping from anywhere and caged ghosts banging the cage to set themselfs free... It was really scary...
We started our journey from the amusement park.... It had several dangerous rides... Enjoyed those...
The main highlight was the ride called pirates revenge- it was the extreme version of indian colombus ride...(the boat rotated 360°)
Finally we are here to the Sunway lagoon,
This was one of the most awaited attraction of the journey...
Wooshhw what a big theme park, it was impossible to complete the entire park in a day soo we had to decide amongst the all rides available...
The Sunway lagoon had six diffrent themed parks
3. extreme park
5. Scream park
Got up late, running late than our planed schedule.. Just one single thing to cover today
'SUNWAY LAGOON THEME PARK'
gott to rush......
21 May 2017
These were very difficult to finish.. No one really wanted to eat these.. Again too sweet wich didnt go with the toppings and chutney served with it was sweet too...
This was the last dish tried at the jalan alore..
While paying bill we ran out of ringets and werent able to oay the bill...luckily money changer was around.. Soo we could easily change the USD available and pay.. On n al a great street with plenty of variety available
Including seafood beef and pork though didnot try that.. (past experiences)
Loved these,Tastes truly indian.. BBQ flavour with the extremely spicy chutney served.. Just perfect
Just for a variety a goodoption...
Didn't like the taste.. Too sweet, typical dish of kuala..
Awsome dish same as the name suggests...
Jalan alore #foodpost
Unexpectedly loved the taste, this was one of the best dishes tried till yed.. Amazing aroma.. N a bit spicy... This was one of the 1st spicy dish tried in kuala.. Most of the dishes are sweet or low in spice.. Loved this
Due to the lack of time had to skip the kl tower's top view, though this was compensated by the hotel room view which has the same hieght as the kl tower..
We just drove past the tower it looked beutiful in the night lighting...
Headed towards the jalan alore, to taste the amazing local cuisines of the city
After the aquarium... We reached the Petronas tower.. The architectural skills are unmatched... To build such great hight towers without any concrete pillars.. Great place.. N the beutiful. lights of the tower and the steel body evan..enhanced the beauty and made the tower more attractive... The bridge in the centre is clear example of the genius mind of the architect.. Though the mall inside was not that great, very expensive n things were common which could be found anywhere at much cheaper rates... Overall loved the beauty of the amazing building...
Finally completed the aquarium journey... Loved this n truly it was magically
One of the most beautiful and must visit place.. The aquarium truelly unbelievable..had a glimpse at the wide diversity of sea creatures... This amazes me evan more the variety of marine creature species.. And their patterns... Not even being able to fit the entire photos in a single post the.. Moment was truely magical.. Each fish has its own shape color structure and the most beautiful their style and pattern of swimming.. It is beutifully caotured through the videos(which cannot be uploaded)
Enjoyed the meal at kenny roger roasters, didnt like the taste much... Chicken was fine but the dumplings were awful yuk didnt like the aroma n taste... Couldn't even finish the meal and had to leave halfway.. Then again went to a nearby 11/7 shop and enjoyed the fish dumplings.. These were also just fine.. But faar betr than the chicken tried earlier
This was truely unbelievable, never imagined a theme park with proper Rollercoasters and other amusement rides to be built on the 5th floor of the barjaya mall.. This was truely amazing tried almost all the rides, excellent roalercoster n and bull riding as well.. Enjoyed the day.. Spent much more time in the mall than what was expected.. It is almost 5.30 and didnt even complete 50% of the mall.. It was huge..
Beutiful innovative creativity.,
The piano steps.. Where each step u walk its a piano button.. U can jump and create yr own rhythm... Had gread dance over it unfortunately the videos made of it cannot be uploaded here..
And another creative idea was the liquid floor where the fluid within the surface reacted to the oressure applied by walking looked phenomenal as new designs got created with each step...
Finally had a great sleep, slept fr almst 8 9 hrs... Much needed sleep... All the while i was getting the feeling of being on an airplane, Finally its gone... A less hectic day today.. Filled with shopping food and sightseeing
First going to head towards the barjaya mall
2. Few other malls if time permits
3. Klcc aquarium
4. Petronas tower
6.jalan alore(famous food street)
20 May 2017
Heading back from mall.. We saw an shop called 7/11 basically it was a daily needs store..
Had a bit of a street food again called the chicken dumplings,beef sausage and a refreshing chilled mountain dew.. Enjoyed it while heading back to our hotel...
Mom dad being extremely tired went to bed early, thus the adventurous escape began, I and my brother escaped to the mall(it is connected to the barjaya hotel) called the barjaya mall... It is a huge mall with 13 floors diveded into 2wings with various amusement rides as well Rollercoaster and all , we just walked through the entire mall n lost trail where we were.. Unable to reach back the gate from where we entered, we followed a strange lady whom we felt was also getting out.. Following her we reached the mall's exit and headed back to our hotel.. The mall amazed us soo much that we have decided to get mom dad here tomorrow,
Extremely tired after the long walk in the kasturi walk.. We reached the central market.. Actually the market was selling basically indian things at a much higher price didnt like it at all... We spent an hour or soo there.... N went for the petaling street, this was like the local market specially designed to fool the international tourists by offering cheap goods at high prices... Tried a few foods here as well.. And returned back to the hotel by 8.30-9
Finally our kusturi walk came to end with this grilled chicken sticks..
😍💗loved this too.. Didnt shop a thing in the entire market.. Only foood we tried..
Hopefully will shop tomorrow @mall
The foood journey continued
This was chicken popcorn
A lil spicy but loved this dish the most..
Tried the chicken samosa.. Tasted fine but didn't liked the dish due to excess of oil content
Tried the sossage bun, it was great in taste the bun was sweet and the sossage being moderately spicy creating a great flavor over al
Dish tried at the kasturi walk
Vegetable roll, liked the taste but was very oily
Visited the kasturi walk
Known for the great street food and local goods that it offers at cheap costs, tried lots of new dishes...
Visited the chinese temple unfortunately couldn't enter the temple, did not knew abt the temple being close aftr 5..
After resting in the marvelous hotel rooms, went to the mahamariam temple, truely indian temple felt like being in india, saw the bath of lords,it was a great experience....
Due to early cheakouts got the room allotted by 12.30
Excellent delux, with the most beutiful view(entire city can be seen) the delux is on the 38th floor of a hotel n consists of 2bedrooms one sitting area n a kitchen feeling like a apartment is rented to us, excellent rooms n to add to the beauty 2 walls at the bedroom are purely made of glass just doubling the beauty, excellent room service as well to add to it... Feeling like never to leave this place... Just loving it # Berjaya times square ur worth the 5star u have
Complementary drink offered by the hotel for welcome..
Reached back the hotel.. Mun dad were sleeping we to got tired n decided to dose off.. But mum dad got up.. Then we decided to have a walk through the entire hotel lobby and evan around the hotel.. Had a street walk... N came back to room n.. Finally was getting a proper 8h sleeping time....
Reached hotel by 10a.m, unfortunately to our misfortune again our rest time had been lost, the hotel was running full n room could be alloted only by 3pm..
This acted as a blessing in disguise and we escaped to the hotel swimming pool n had an refreshing fun.. Enjoyed 2hours n felt rejuvenated again..
Went to a random resturant for breakfast n ordered a random dish 'mamek gaureng' which was basically noodles with half fried egg n lemon.. Though looked a simple dish... The ingredients made a unique blend n tasted really awsome...
Troubled by the air journey we reached the buss fully tired n sleepy.. Had a bit of sleep in the bus, to charge up for the day's excitement,but stars falling apart... Again it was AC problem but this time it cooled beyond tye requirement n the function to slow AC or stop it was not working, got freeezed up.....
We had decided not to take any tour package or travelling agent... N plan our own journey, places to visit and the hotel to stay in..
The plan was predecided
1.Rest till 5pm in hotel room (Barjaya times square)
2.visit the mahamariam temple
3.visit to the china temple
4.walk by the kusturi road and try various cuisines
5.visit the central market
6. Visit the pentaling streel
The kuala lampur airport, it was full of tourists from all round the globe, could easily recognize their origin from their accent n face, great tourism development... . Airport was fully updated with al technolagies and served the purpose of a shopping complex too.. We reached the air port by 5.40 and headed towards the bus stop for reaching quala city which was 60kms away from the Airport,
As expected i got scared, high on adrenaline each movement of the plain triggered my fear... (specially the take off and the landing part)
The flight was too cunjusted and uncomfortable..cldnt sleep the entire night....though the airhostressss was nice, cldnt click a picture of her or with her...
Continuous efforts of sleeping n unable to do so left the mind unstable and slow because it was 2nd continous night without proper sleep....felt bit dull n exhausted...
19 May 2017
