Did you say long holiday weekend? Like any other Singaporeans, I’d rather be overseas than be stuck in zombie land. This time round, our country of choice is just 5 hours ride up across the causeway.
As usual, we would board midnight coach from Larkin as they cost half of what companies in Singapore is charging. At 4am, we found ourself stranded at Terminal Bersepadu Selatan. We had about 2 hours to kill before the first train starts its operations.
Normally our preferred accommodation would be located around Bukit Bintang district. But this time round, we decided to stay at aLoft which is located at KL Sentral. KL Sentral is probably the best place to stay at. It’s like staying at Jurong East Interchange where all the train lines will intersect at this location which makes it very easy for travelling.
We were lucky because aLoft had rooms available and granted our request for early check in but before we go in to our rooms, we first need to check out the swimming pool located on the roof. The view on the roof was spectacular! You can see the whole KL skyline from there! We even made it a mission for us to make an effort to wake up early and watch sunrise from here!
Our room was also amazing! Beyond perfect although it doesn’t have any bathtubs in the toilet. The room reminded me of the room I stayed in Hard Rock Hotel SG. The room was spacious!
Once we settled ourselves in our room, we contemplated whether we should take a nap before exploring KL or go for a dip in the swimming pool. Of course we chose the latter!
Because we didn’t have any proper food since last night, I started grumbling about being hungry. The best thing about my travel buddy here is that she never fails to find food! Just tell her what you feel like eating and she’ll do the rest.
Because of her awesome research skills, we ended up at Chequers which offers gourmet waffles. I would never in a million years expect to find this gem in KL. The food served were delicious and customer service was perfect!
After lunch, we took a very long stroll to Nealofar Hijab store. We were spoilt for choice! They have scarves in many different designs and almost every color you can think of!
After exercise in the pool, our hefty lunch and 45 min long stroll, we decided to cab back to our hotel and have a nap. XD When we reached into our room, I saw a slice of brownie on the table. It was my birthday surprise which my lovely friend had arranged with the hotel. *inserts eyes with hearts emoticon*
Dropped by NU Sentral for our dinner! Dubu Dubu Urban Korean Food restaurant was our choice. The food wasn’t bad with free flow sides.
We ended the night by catching a movie, got evacuated out of the theatre halfway through the movie and missed the best action part because some idiot decided to smoke inside the toilet. The end.
