Malaysia: Truly Asia Days 1 & 2

In the verge of reviving my blog, I plan on reminiscing the local and overseas trips I have made for the past year. First stop, let’s go to Malaysia. πŸ™‚

Me and my friends, who have officially tagged ourselves as the Piso Fare Gang (or PFG, since we are always on the lookout for Cebu Pacific’s promo fares :P) had our first international tour together in the land of chendol and the Petronas Towers.

It was evening when we left Manila.

Shiela, Me, and Ipe

Some of us coming from work (I came from the house since I just packed my bags the morning of the day we leave! x_x) Tired as we were, we plan sleeping on the plane for the 3-hour trip. πŸ™‚ And we did… NOT.

I tried to sleep, ok. But I can't. XD

We arrived KLCCT a few hours after midnight. The streets are quiet already and there are few people around. We hurried ourselves to the hotel for an early morning trip to Melakka.

Since there are many of us in the group., we decided to commute; and in every trip, the goal is to save as much as possible so we have more money to buy presents for the family and friends back home. ^^ We almost got lost while trying to find the double-deck bus (which we sadly missed) to get to the bus station to go to Melakka. Due to this epic fail, we took the cab instead.

So there's Joy with our fellow commuters. πŸ™‚

And there's Shiela, Ipe, and Lei.
Finally, Yan & I. (Caught off--guard. LOL)

It was an hour and a half or two ride to Melakka. Being the sleepyhead that I am, I tried getting some snooze on the way. πŸ˜› Then we were here!

I love old sceneries. Melakka is a UNESCO World Heritage Site because it has preserved a part of history of the 15th century Malaysia as it was influenced by European colonies in the past.

Too funny, though. In Malaysia, we are (most of the time) immediately recognized as Filipinos because (get ready for this) of the soap opera Pangako Sa’yo. The people of Melakka keep asking us about and identifying us as Angelo, Yna, Amor, etc. LOL. Filipino dramas have also made its way to the hearts of our neighboring countries. πŸ™‚

I think we didn't have a picture of the tour guides who are fond of Filipino soap operas so I'll just post a photo of the beautifully decorated pedicabs. πŸ™‚

After enjoying the scenery, we head off to Jonker Street for lunch and refreshments and more sight-seeing adventures. πŸ™‚

Lunch: Hainanese chiken and rice balls + barley juice
Jonker Street leisure walk. There are a lot of souvenir shops here but my favorite is the couple tee store. I didn't bought anything from there, though. πŸ˜›
Dessert: Kacang & Chendol. Foodie trivia 101: Asked the person-in-charge of the difference between the two and he said that kacang uses milk while chendol uses coco milk.

We got back from Melakka to Central Market after our walking tour. As usual, it’s commuting time once again. It’s fun doing this since it’s a weekday and we get to see kids from school, people coming from work, and other busy stuff going around (in contrast to what we have seen during our arrival in KL. Hehe.)

This is the time for us to hunt for gifts for people in Manila. LOL

This is not a shopping photo, though. Hehe. (Yan is missing 'cause she's the one taking the photo.

Then dinner time!

Not only in Singapore. Eating hawker style is also popular in Malaysia. πŸ™‚ This is buttered chicken (with a lot of floss goin' on there)

Lastly, who would miss the Petronas Twin Towers? We went to Suria to get ourselves some Beryl’s. It rained. But we cannot miss having some photo ops even if it made us dripping wet.

Lei & I trying to get a good shot of the Petronas even under the awesome rain!
I know I could have left this but I brought this transparent umbrella for photo op. It served its purpose. Hehehe.
Dripping wet Ipe & I. πŸ˜›

Teehee. It was fun indeed (even if we looked wasted)!

At the end of the day, all of us were tired but happy (and pretty, of course. LOL)

Malaysia Day 2 – Coming up! (Errr… Date still to be determined. Hehehe.)
