The realization is finally happened.. Our family vacation, after almost 2 years we never really went holiday together, full team. Last year, only my parent and I went to Europe. We left my brother because he stuck in his freshman year at his new college.
We decided to go to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia . It’s because my brother never went there before. I think Kuala Lumpur and Malacca is great for him. He can do some photo hunt to add in his portfolio. Oh yes, forgot to mention that my brother-soon-to-be-architect-and-photographer is really good at photography. My future pre-wed photographer. Ahahahaha.. 😉
We took the last flight to KL on Friday nights. We stayed at Melia Kuala Lumpur. It is in front of Imbi Station of Monorail and very near to Bukit Bintang, Kuala Lumpur major shopping district.
First day in KL actually we planned to go to Malacca together, but unfortunately we missed the bus. So It happen that I can not join my brother and my father to go to Malacca the next day. Because I must take the latest flight to Jakarta. Hmm.. very short vacation. But it’s ok. So, after we missed the bus, we decided to go to KLCC. Main goal for my brother is to take the picture of Petronas Tower. Main goal for me is shopping in KLCC.. 😀 Different intentions same destination.. 😛
We went there using Monorail. And than take that long walk from Bukit Nanas monorail station to KLCC / Petronas tower . We took some pictures with Petronas tower as the background. The photo session is quite tricky, because how to manage to get the top of Petronas tower, that’s the hard part. Well, my brother is a pro. So.. here is the result :
Nice right ? hehehe.. 😉 And.. then it’s time for shopping in KLCC. Hehehe.. for all people bearing foreign passport, we have privilege to get 10 % discount on every store in KLCC. The result is I bought 4 nice pair of shoes. That’s it for my own only. I bought for my mom also. Hehe..;) Oh yeah, I happened to meet with Tiko and her sister. She said that Hendra now is assign in KL. I guess he still in Shell.
Oh well, for the night. We went to KL Tower and then we had dinner in Bukit Bintang. Our waiter in the restaurant is actually Indonesian. And then my mom had a little chat with her. She came from East Java. She has one child and divorced from her husband. The story is her life is getting more complicated because the person who get her to Malaysia is holding her passport. She must worked like 3 jobs to pay her debt. And is very disturbing for me to hear her story. Is it that hard to find decent jobs in Indonesia, so our people must work overseas, and work like that ?!? Hmm.. something to think about..
The next day, my brother and my father went to Malacca very early in the morning. My mom and I continue to shop that day. But we strolling a long Bukit Bintang . 😛 In the afternoon It’s time for me to go home. I went to KL Sentral using monorail. And because I used Malaysian Airlines I can do city check in in KL Sentral. I only brought 1 bag and 1 shopping bag. After I finished check in. I went to KLIA using KLIA Express. It’s only 28 minutes to go to KLIA using KLIA Express.
And.. Finally.. Jakarta.. And he‘s already waiting for me… 🙂 Short trip.. But it’s refreshing..
