Malaysia – Kuala Lumpur!

Hello, N checking in again today. I’d like to tell you all about my trip to Kuala Lumpur. Malaysia is a beautiful place with beautiful people and great food. Unlike all the other places i have been to though, in Kuala Lumpur there isn’t alot to do, other than shop and visit some museums and of course the Petronas towers. Although i do advise you to go and check it out! I went for 10 days though i would recommend no more than 1 week. Kuala Lumpur was hot, sticky and it would rain for a few minutes every afternoon. I was within the tourist ground so wherever i went the shops would surround me (lucky me :] ).

The sculpture grounds I visited enable you to create your own clay sculptures which was great fun. The museums were unusual and visually exciting. Visiting and seeing the history and culture of another country is always fun without a doubt! The Petronas towers are beauitful and SOOO TALL! They are skyscrapers 170mtres above the ground.Be sure to wake up early to visit the towers as there is always a long line. Very few people are able to din instead the towers and i was funtate enough to do so. It was remarkable and i must show you the photos 🙂

Food wise i would recommend you visit the restaurants within the hotels or preferably in the shopping malls. However, if your a risk taking and like to try anything you see than make sure you visit the little food stalls outside and on the strips of the markets as there are heaps to see!

Now to the shopping. The markets are HUGE! I visited the markets four times and there was still so much to see! I was directly opposite a shopping mall I also visited the shops alot. Though the markets are like nothing else i have ever experienced. There are so many beautiful and nice people there, altough there are also some individuals who try to … lets say attach you, expecially if your a female (and not in a very nice way). It is very hot, sticky and very very smelly there so be sure to say hydrated and wear a hat, and ensure you goods stay on you 24/7! Check out some of the photos of the shopping mall, unfortunately i don’t have anything to show for the markets as we were to concerned if someone would steal our camera as there is alot of stealing of peoples goods at the markets.

One thing though that i was disappointed about was there weren’t any local beaches; it would take about 1.5-2hrs to visit the nearest beach (though I never went). But apparently there was also a water theme park; but again i never made it there.

Be sure to visit Kuala Lumpur it is very different, unique and a beautiful place to go to.

So safe travelling and enjoy Malaysia if you do visit

Love always N xx

Aloha from Hawaii!

Aloha to all my fellow travelers. I am a new blogger checking in today- please call me N. I would love to  take you all aboard the flight to Hawaii. As summer is fast approaching here in Australia, over in Hawaii it is summer and party season all year round. If your the kind of person who loves to party and enjoy the sunshine than keep on reading this blog because Hawaii is the place to be !

The main reasowhy i love Hawaii so much is because it is a one stop shop. It has everything i love – shopping, sun, sand, beaches and great sight seeing adventures. When i visited Hawaii  i stayed on the Big island also known as the main island. I must advise you on the best places to go when in Hawaii must, these include:

– The Ala Moana shopping mall: there are over 1000 stores and i was still unable to visit them all. Might i add that i went there three consecutive days, because the place is so big. Even for a shopper holic like myself i was still unable to visit each store. The shopping mall and the factory outlets- Waikele Outlets in Hawaii are so great what makes them even better is that they are so reasonably price unlike many places here in Australia.

– The Wolfgang’s steak house was AMAZING if you love your meats be sure to visit. The meats are so tender; everything in Hawaii is served in such large proportions (even the ice-cream at Baskin and Robin are huge!). Ordering a salad in Hawaii; you don’t receive a normal proportion sizes are huge no matter what you order.

Image

– The cheesecake factory: great if you have a sweet tooth as they have over 30 different kinds of cheesecakes for you to try; though might i add make sure you book early if you ever do want to dine there as they have a huge waiting line 24/7 er one let me just tell you it could feed 5 people.

– I recommend you take a tour bus around the island; my family and i were able to see the whole island in 9 HOURS with pit stops. We visited the Buddha temple which is remarkable coming from a Catholic community and visiting the sacred temples of other religions was really beautiful.

-Seeing the remarkable beaches where the waves reach over 9 meters high during there peak season (which is usually Jan-Mar), your able to try your surfing skills out

– Getting off the bus to visit the pineapple farms was one of my favorite pit stops; still till today i have the sweet taste in my mouth. May i just say they taste nothing like the pineapples here in Australia. Pineapple ice-cream, lollies, fried pineapple- anything pineapple they had.

– Going to one of the Gridiron games was phenomenal!! I never knew the games went for over 5 hours- reason being unlike NRL footy games here in Australia they don’t stop every time someone is tackled although in America every time someone is put to the ground they reset the game; this process takes up most of the time though as shown in the picture below it is an amazing view; felt as though i was going to fall off a cliff because the seats are so high up.

– MUST DO snorkeling so beautiful being up close and touching the sea turtles and fish in the Hawaiian oceans was breath taking. Also, if you love the water make sure you do some great water sports as they offer great activities such as stand surfing. You could be out in the ocean as far as 10meters though there are still shallow patches and people still manage to find there way back to shore.

Over all may i just stay make sure you take a visit to Hawaii you will be amazed by how much they have to offer. Their generosity is beautiful and the view in general is something which will take your breath away.

Until next time Mahalo
