Day 1 in Kuala Lumpur

There are several ways to get to Kuala Lumpur from Singapore. I've been there by coach, car and plane. Driving takes about 4 hours while plane journey is about 40 minutes. This time, we took an early morning flight on Jetstar which went without a hitch.

We arrived in KL to find the immigration hall filled with snaking lines of people. We had to spend more than half an hour standing in line, with our tummies growling and patience thinning.

Our lodging, Somerset Seri Bukit Ceylon Serviced Apartments, is an hour away by express train followed by taxi. We arrived at the apartment close to lunch time, dropped our bags and set off in search of food.

Staying in the Golden Triangle of Kuala Lumpur made it convenient for us to walk to the major shopping centres and restaurants. On the way to Pavilion Shopping Centre, we walked past a row of interesting cafes, pubs and restaurants. This area is very similar to Holland Village in Singapore.

This restaurant's menu featuring The Magnificent Fish & Chips caught our eye.

With an impressive bar, the clientele is mainly expatriates and tourists.

As you can see, the menu is cute but the food wasn't great. We were disappointed they weren't serving fish & chips that day as their fryer had gone kaput.

We opted for the grilled seafood platter instead. The prawn smelled so funky, nobody dared to touch it.

The shepard's pie was good.

After an expensive yet unsatisfying lunch, we continued our journey to Pavilion - the newest shopping mall in KL.

Kuala Lumpur is a city of contrasts, boasting a mix of stunning skyscrapers and a fair share of decrepit buildings.

As KL is a shopper's paradise, we spent the rest of the day shopping. And eating.

Lunch was Nasi Bojari at Madam Kwan's.

Nasi Bojari - three coloured rice served with beef rendang, assam prawns and deep fried chicken drumstick - is a sinful meal but so very delicious. The chicken here is cooked to perfection - crispy outside but succulent and tender inside. The beef rendang is very soft and fragrant. The assam prawn was so nice, I wished there were more.

After lunch, we crossed over to Snow Flake Taiwanese Dessert.

Most of us ordered the bestseller featuring chewy yam and sweet potato balls but my friend's red bean and peanut one tasted better.

I hope you don't think we're gluttons by now because I'm going to show more photos of food we consumed during our 3 days there!

Dinner was quite modest as we weren't too hungry. I've read about kedongdong juice but I tried it for the first time last week and loved it so much I had two glasses. It was slightly tangy, sweet and utterly refreshing.

This restaurant's version of KL black noodles turned out to be different from what we've all had before. This was ok, but we still prefer the authentic one using a flatter noodle.

The stir fried sweet potato leaves was surprisingly tender and delicious.

After an entire day of eating, we went to bed thinking of what to eat the next day!

More coming up.

Howdy this is kind of of off topic but I was wanting to know if
blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding expertise so I wanted to get advice
from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
