And that was really a remarkable day:
(KLCC, Petronas Twin Towers, Thean Hou Temple, lunch and dinner at Chinese restaurants)
All with an amazing Filipino girl companion, Kaila Samson…
I woke up by 9 am, had a shower and sat to have my breakfast and there I met our day companion Kaila from Philippine.
She was so hyper and funny. She didn’t have plans for the day and was ready to spend the day with us. Walid woke up by 9:30 and we went together to the Petronas towers (third highest building in the world).
We had to run to be able to catch our turn. We moved from the hostel by 9:35 am. we got to the train station and took the train to KLCC, got of the train and ran towards the towers!
We arrived there 9:58 thanks God as our ticket time was 10:00. Kaila had to wait for us down there. We made the booking over the internet 2 days beforehand!
Once we arrived at the ticket office, a guy took us and gave us a visitor ID each. Then we went to watch a short explanatory video on an air-screen. That was so nice and amazing!
And you can watch the video from here:
After the video ended they took us to the skybridge which connects the twin towers together on the 41st floor at the height of 170 m above street level and of course we took some photos there:
Then we went to the observation desk which is 370 m above street level and took many many photos, and those are some of them:
And we also recorded a video from the 3rd highest building in the world!
OMG! That was really amazing experience. It was quite expensive as t costed us RM80, but it was totally worth it!
Before we leave the building I just need to show you the speed of the elevator, watch this video:
Another thing which I noticed and was really really fascinated about how civilized these people are is shown in the following picture:
We met Kaila after we finished our tour inside the amazing towers.
Then we decided to for the biggest Chinese temple in KL which is named “Thean Hou Temple” We took the bus to the closest station near the temple, and then we had to walk about half an hour to reach there.
While we were going to Thean Hou Temple we stumbled by a Chinese school. I recorded a video for them as I liked it so much 🙂
You can watch the video from here:
Then we continued walking reaching the big temple:
After we arrived we took some amazing photos:
Later on, we stumbled by a Chinese restaurant, while walking to the bus station and decided to have lunch together, and I believe we ordered noodles with chicken and shrimps. I remember it was very delicious 🙂
Then we continued walking. Reaching the bus station, we took the bus heading towards the Botanical gardens which was really really marvelous place. You can find out about that place from these photos:
I have a story to tell about this so-called tree-house! When I saw it, I decided to get closer to it and maybe get inside it. But once I apprached it I heared a roaring sound coming from it!!! I was really terrified and I ran away from it. Later I me tWalid and Kalia and told them about it and Walid decided to try his luck, and he heard the same sound! But we discovered that there was a man sleeping inside and that voice was his… !!! OMG! 😀
We finished our tour in the garden, got some rest and then went back to the bus station. We jumped into the bus leaving to China Towen (where our hostel is). We arrived by 7 pm. And our (me and Walid) to Alor Star (from where we will get the ferry to Langkawi) was at 9:45 pm. We thought we have sometime for a quick last dinner together.
We got inside a Chinese restaurant in Chinatown; Kaila bought pork pie while walid had a drink and I had…
Then we went back to the hostel to finalize everything and bid Kaila goodbye:
Kaila was so ice to give us some Piso (Philippine currency) and I gave her also some Egyptian pounds.
And we went to the train station, looking for much more fun at Langkawi…
