Truly Asia, Malaysia

At long last, I experienced 2 of the best known places in Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur and Malacca. These two places are some of the reasons why Malaysia is said to be "Truly Asia". It was a two day adventure! Hahaha. By the way, we started our adventure yesterday.

First stop was Kuala Lumpur. So, Kuala Lumpur is the capital of Malaysia and it's like 380 km away from Johor Bahru, where we are staying. We were on the road for almost 4 hours and after we arrived in KL, we lost our way. Nice right?! Hahaha. We were aiming for the Petronas Tower and my dad didn't know the correct way to go there so we lost! Hahaha. The good thing was we saw the whole Kuala Lumpur! Hahaha. Anyway, Petronas Tower is so great, I must say, it's really one of the most extravagant man made infrastructures.

Inside the tower is a huge mall and I think offices. We just went to the mall part. It is really stunning and huge and really tall! There were also many tourists that day. Petronas Tower is really a Malaysian pride.

After roaming around the Peronas Tower, we went to Malacca. Malacca is like the Intramuros of Malaysia. FYI, Magellan also landed to Malacca and Christianism in Malaysia was started. But obviously, it didn't rule, but you can see many churches there. Malacca is said to be the "Historic City of Malaysia" and it really is historic. We went to Malacca Museum and we had fun. Actually there are so many interesting and fascinating thingies in that Museum. We also went to the Menara Taman Sari Tower and we saw the whole Malacca. We also went to Magellan's Ship Museum. It was a huge ship with a museum inside. At first we thought that it's just a huge ship but inside is an educational museum.

After a tiring day, we rented a small hotel where we slept. The next day, we went to the Eye on Malaysia. It's a huge Ferry's Wheel where in you can see the whole Malacca and some islands of Malaysia. The sceneary was really amazing and gave me chills. Hahaha.

We really had FUN! The experience was truly amazing but also tiring. Sad thing we didn't go to Genting Island. But to sum it up all, wow, Malaysia is really great. :]
