We couldnt miss KLs nightlife! Even if that meant stroller around with child and simply watching discotheques and clubs booming around. After the long daytrip through Genting, we decided dinner would be at Bukit Bintang, the hill of the stars. Our closest monorail was Bukit Nanas. Zayyan enjoyed the twinkling lights of the city from the monorail this time.
We got off at B. Bintang and did the Bintang walk to the Pavilion.
It seemed most restaurants were lebanese. It was too hard to find Jalan Ilor so we followed the crowd. Chinese New Year celebrations were everywhere! We also had a chance to view some fireworks and enjoyed the sticky lebanese ice cream!
Dinner was quite expensive and too little, so we had to refuel ourselves in the hotel for curries from Nasi Kander via Uber. To be honest, Nasi Kander food was far better that the “posh” shwarma’s in the sidewalk Bintang restaurant.
We cancelled Putra Jaya. There wasn’t enough time and we didnt even have any pictures with KLCC. So the plan next day was to stick around the KLCC area.
Zayyan, his dad and his nana are fish fans, so Aquarium was the first stop. I booked through Klook. We walked towards Jalan Pinang and discovered a beautiful air conditioned, stroller friendly walkway. It was worth the visit with HUGE stingrays floating around (a bit creepy for me).
Unfortunately we missed going up the Petronas Towers as the tickets were sold out. Even though Menara KL was a good idea, simply having a full tummy lunch and walking around Suria KLCC made us tired. The heat was too much and Zayyan fell asleep. So we headed home for a cool chill.
Old memory lanes
At night, we were invited by a Malaysian family to have dinner with them. I had the opportunity to show Zayyan and husband, my ex-home in Malaysia and the walk around Jalan Hillside Estate in Ampang.
The next day, we planned a trip for Subang. If you didn’t know Subang Jaya is well known for the Sunway group of medical, education, retails, entertainmeny more commonly known as Sunway Pyramid malls or Sunway Lagoon theme park. I didn’t know before today that the whole area was a mine before 1980s which the Sunway Group converted to what it is today.
I lived close to Sunway Pyramid back in the days, so my visit was not just the pyramids but a walk down memory lane. Needless to say, the trips around Sunway and KL Aquarium was far easier as these places seemed to be stroller friendly.
We spent the rest of the evening chillaxing and packing while the boys visited Masjid Jamek. Masjid Jamek wasn’t my cup of tea, however I can truly say there are some nice architectural wonders and history around the Indian Bangladeshi dominated area.
That ended our trip to KL. And we planned to onboard to sweet home country. Bangladesh.
