Here's how Mich and I spent our weekend. Narration through photos. HEH.

The most popular way of going to Malaysia from Singapore is by bus. There are a lot of bus companies that you could choose from, but go for the "coach" buses. They're more expensive than the regular ones but that's because you're paying for convenience, comfort and drop off is directly at Kuala Lumpur. The best ones I heard (and saw with my own eyes) are the Nice & Transnational buses (or the double decker ones), coz they offer free meal onboard and the seats are similar to those you'd see on the business class section of planes. BUT their online booking system sucks. We didn't want to risk seat & time availability, so we just booked a cheaper version online. The bus turned out nice and comfortable--reclinable seats + foot rest. Sana ganito buses sa Pinas! Calling Victory Liner! Book HERE.
sleep are for the weak--haggarda!
noodles for breakfast
Wasn't able to sleep coz we had to go down twice for Immigration (out from Singapore and into Malaysia). The process was super easy and organized.
Immigration out of Singapore
So glad I wore my new Bench jeggings (which fits perfectly by the way) coz it was cold on the bus. Hehe. Wanted to wear something colorful so I wore my yellow tanktop also from Bench. Aylaveeeet. Casual comfort at it's best, me thinks.
6 hours (and a bucket of drool) later, we finally landed in Kuala Lumpur! The bus stop was right in front of Berjaya mall--super convenient!!! So we headed to the nearest money changer (which was inside the mall), and headed to the foodcourt to make lafang (in english: eat so much). Finally, wifiiiiiiiii (no free wifi in SG).
anlaki ng sign db?bulag? (in english: 3 blind mice?)
Our hotel was just near (as in behind Berjaya), so we just walked all the way there. After 1 million steps (haha we got lost!), we finally made it!
lost in translation
booked this hotel via Agoda!
READ!!! pls explain. what horse? hehe
the bedroom was quite small but super cozy. I likey.
CR was okay:)
I haven't slept yet for 2 days, so 10 seconds after lying down and before I could even finish my sentence, "Mich anlambot ng unan nagiimprint my face o", I already dozed off.
Mich wanted to wake me up at around 5 but she said I looked sooo tired, so she waited til 7pm. I woke up refreshed and with a swollen face and eyes. Haha. I freshened up then we went to Petaling night market to eat and shop! It's best to just ride a cab coz the city is kinda confusing. I only bought a bag, the rest of our purchases went to food. When we got home we realized we spent P3500 or $80 on food alone! Gluttony haha.
dinner sa tabi tabi
Obsessing over mangoes. you can buy fruits for just 1.20 ringgit. So that's P15.
squid with chili and fried kangkong. meal was close to P300.
There were hundreds of stalls but nothing really caught my fancy. The goods sold you'd find in St. Francis or Divisoria. I'd rather shop in Bugis. Hehe.
The only thing I bought--a longchamp2an bag for 40 ringgit or close to P500! Nice quality I swear. And my new obsession--rice cakes!
Okay nabaliw na sa food.
We woke up late--around 12pm--so we headed to Berjaya first to eat lunch. Ate at KFC and didn't really love it. I like ours better. We were about to ride a cab going to Petronas when we saw this...
sword fighting exhibition. amazing!
We bought a taxi coupon at the side of the mall. Fare going to Petronas was just 10 ringgit. Be careful with cabs there coz they tend to overprice. Be firm in telling them you want it metered!
jumpsuit-Iconique, shoes-Archive, cardi-F21, bag-petaling market
Love that this jumpsuit from Iconique is super lightweight and comfy! Perfect for the hot Malaysia weather. Hehe. After forcing Mich to take my outfit shots, we then headed inside.
Inside was a huge mall called Suriya. Temptation island haha. We wanted to go to the top --the skybridge--but unfortunately there were no more tickets. There's a limit of 1000 tickets per day. :( So we just decided to kill time inside and went around.
went inside and found out goods were overpriced. Bleh. :/
went to Make Up For Ever to try on their concealer...
...and ended up buying it for 120 ringgit or almost P1600
nice park at the middle. new york lang?
After an hour we headed back to Berjaya to wait for our busride home. We waited in
Starbucks (thank God for free wifi) where Mich had this...
lumot latte. ew dont like. :/
The busride home was smooth and I just slept all the way to Singapore. I love how a 6-hour busride could take you na to another country! Satin Baguio lang. Heh.
Train ride to Chinatown--home. :)
Will definitely go back to Malaysia soon and longer. But for now, I'll continue enjoying Singapore! Done with 3 malls today and heading to
Orchard later. Need to sleep and recharge. Catch up on you later at night!:) So far, I'm not missing the Philippines! Haha.
