Malaysia Here We Come!

June 16, 2010

If you have been following this blog for a while, then you must have read about my e-passport (mis)adventures.

The truth is, I was panicking for good reason. Last February, I was able to book 2 roundtrip tickets to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia for a measly Php9,000 (about $195) via Cebu Pacific. It was a deal too good to be ignored so I quickly snapped up the tickets, fully aware that I needed to renew my passport. Well, you can read what happened next here.

To make the long story short, I got my passport just in time for the trip. Hubby and I made a list of things that we “absolutely have to do in KL” and things that we “can do if we had extra time”.

So here are the two lists:

Things that we absolutely have to do in KL:

  1. Commute like the locals.
  2. Go up the Petronas Twin Towers.
  3. Eat Nando’s Peri-Peri Chicken.
  4. Eat Ramley Burger.
  5. Visit Batu Caves.
  6. Eat streetfood.
  7. Go to Ikea.
  8. Ride the HOHO Tourist Bus.
  9. Eat Char Kway Teow.
  10. Go to Malaka.
  11. Drink lots of kopi and teh tahrik.

Things that we can do if we had extra time:

  1. Go to the FIAT dealership so hubby can test-drive look at the new Fiat 500.
  2. Ride the Eye on Malaysia in Melaka.
  3. Take the zipline down the Merdeka Tower. (Yeah, right!)

I know, I know… half of the list is made up of what we wanted to eat. But believe me, eating in Malaysia is a very important affair and deserves the same attention as doing certain activities like going up the steep steps of the Batu Caves. So in the next few days, I will be filling you in on what we’ve managed to cross out from our list. To be continued.
