Oh hai, Malaysia!

So many things to write about, but I’m too pooped and I have to be up in less than 8 hours so here’s a short post in bullet points:

Curry Laksa Mee
Laksa!

  • Yes, I am back in Malaysia. I’m currently in Kuala Lumpur, along with Ivan and Ferdz. We’re here upon the invitation of Tourism Malaysia.
  • We have a full itinerary, which includes the Petronas Skybridge, Sunway Lagoon, Genting Highlands and Cameron Highlands.
  • On to more random things: airport lounges are love. Thank you, Ivan.
  • Our 4:50pm flight out of Manila was delayed by an hour because of heavy air traffic at NAIA.
  • Ferdz got a windowless window seat. So if you’re flying Malaysia Airlines, tell the ground staff not to seat you at row 20.
  • KLIA is pretty. I can’t wait to explore it during the day when we fly back to Manila.
  • Malaysia Airlines is testing out Aero Mobile in one of their Boeing 777 planes. We happened to be in that plane. I was able to open my phone and send a text message to friends. I am looking forward to seeing my phone bill.
  • My first meal in Malaysia is once again, Char Kway Teow and Curry Laksa Mee.
  • I love my room at the Impiana KLCC. I don’t think I want to go back to hostels.

My room. My lovely lovely room on the 13th floor

    Chris: At the start, fail siya kasi walang signal, but while we were in the middle of the sea, meron na and my friends were able to get my sms 😀

    Mr. Whattaworld: Sige, if we pass by Tanah Rata. I think we’re staying somewhere else eh 🙁

    Lovely floor on the “13TH FLOOR??” Ironic eh? hehe

    Oh hey yay now you’re in Malaysia 😀

    It’s a wonderful time to be in KL at the moment – it’s Merdeka Day (Independence Day) on Monday so its a long weekend for us Malaysians. The firework display from Dataran Merdeka is awesome, especially so when you’re staying in Impiana KLCC!

    Have fun Nina!

    Doc Mike: Is it ever!

    Lyn: We’re actually supposed to be here for Merdeka, but the celebration has been cut down to just 40 minutes, so we’re headed to Malacca instead 😀

  7. Getting a sponsored trip just shows bloggers are now a force to reckon with. And traveling with like-minded bloggers must be fun.

    Congratulations on going “big time” with your blogging!

    I’m laughing so hard at your line, “I don’t think I want to go back to hostels.” At this rate, maybe you won’t have to!

  9. freeze says:

    WOW, nina… you’re being recognized internationally at talagang you’re “invited by Tourism Malaysia” pa. Kudos and keep up the good work. I love your perks!!! 🙂

    nina! you’re in KL!! and I’m not there anymore.. 🙁 Am happy though that you’re turning out to be a regional travel blogger professional! so cool!

    Wow, ang galing naman. Me junket pala, hahaha. KL is one place I’d never get tired of going, kahit kumakalog ako sa Air Asia 😀

  12. […] biggest surprise of all was getting an invitation from the Manila office of Tourism Malaysia for a Mega Familiarization Tour of Kuala Lumpur during Merdeka. And it seems I can’t get enough of Malaysia: I’m going back again next […]
