THE LONE TRAVELER SERIES: Kuala Lumpur + Genting


TRAVEL ALONE - another item off my bucket list!!! :)))) It has always been my goal to travel and explore a place on my own. I've been planning to do this for the past few years and finally this plan was already put into action. Last February, we had a long weekend at work so when I knew about this long weekend, I immediately searched for an international flight and it was my lucky day because there was a seat sale promo. *insert happy dance here*

Days before my scheduled trip, I was feeling both nervous and excited because this is my first time to go out of the country alone but as Kelly Clarkson would sing it, "it doesn't mean I'm lonely when I'm alone". Maybe the main reason why I decided to travel on my own is to test how adventurous and how brave I am. I admit I felt sad at first but as time passed by, I realized there is nothing to be sad about. On a positive note, I was able to know myself more and determine how far can I go just to make this trip a memorable one. Indeed, it was a very memorable trip and I've never felt this proud for bringing out the brave and more adventurous part in me. :-p

I have so many things to say about this trip but I will just let the photos to do the talking.

DAY 1 

a. National Museum




b. The New King's Palace


c. National Monument


d. National Mosque



e. Merdeka Square (Independence Square) - the center of activities and celebration in Kuala Lumpur




f. Beryl's Chocolate Kingdom



g. Batu Caves























h. The picturesque Petronas Twin Towers



Day 2

a. Genting Highlands and its Indoor Theme Park




b. Berjaya Times Square


c. Jalan Petaling/ Chinatown - one of the busiest and most alive streets in Kuala Lumpur by night


d. Central Market - a place for souvenir shopping



One of the highlights of this trip was commuting all by myself. I never imagined getting lost and commuting in a foreign country would be this fun!! And if there is another reason to be proud of this trip, it would be not riding or taking a cab to get to a specific place. :))) I'm proud to say that I commuted to get to Batu Caves and Genting Highlands. There may be instances when I got lost but sometimes getting lost becomes an avenue where you learn best. (#hugot) Also it helps to use your inquiry skills coupled with charms to find your way back. (#hugot again) hahahaha!



But of course, a trip would not be complete without my food escapades!!!!




This resto is located few meters away from Chinatown.  I walked more than 10 minutes from my hotel just to reach this place and that long walk was worth it!

Jalan Alor - Kuala Lumpur's gastronomic hub


I would definitely travel solo again! More lone traveler series to come!! :))))
