I have a few friends who live in Kuala Lumpur. They offered to be drive me to any spot that I wanted to visit. We took a five minute ride over to the most visited location in Kuala Lumpur, the Petronas Towers, located at KLCC. The construction of the towers was completed in 1996. Fun fact: the Petronas Towers were the largest buildings in the world from 1998 to 2004. I had to get the most touristy pic ever.
After the pictures of the towers, we had lunch at Little Penang Kafe inside of Suria KLCC. I ordered the nasi lemak Penang with fish. The portions were small and the fish had a lot of small bones. I really did not like it, but I was happy to try some different food.
After searching for other things to do near my hotel, I found the Mini Zoo at KL Tower.
We looked for parking near the tower but it was nonexistent. There is a hotel across the street, so we parked there. After a few minutes of walking, we arrived at the shuttle pickup. Due to some pushy tourists, we did not take the shuttle. We walked the half mile up to the zoo. The zoo had plenty of animals.
We did not go into KL Tower because the price for the revolving restaurant was quite expensive. After a quick shower at my hotel, my friends took me to Raj’s Banana Leaf Indian Restaurant. The place was awesome. It had been a long time since I had used my hands to put food directly into my mouth.
We also ventured to Jalan Alor where there tons of food shops. One of them caught our eye after looking at about a dozen places. We ordered so. much. food (<—emphasis). Stingray, squid, grilled beef, oh my!
If you do not want to be bothered by hagglers, do not got to (Jalan Alor).
Thanks to my friends for showing me around the city. I am forever indebted. There is not a bad thing that I could say about my time there. We even partied with Joe Flizzow which was dope as well. Until next time Kuala Lumpur.
