Hello from the streets of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia! My friends and I were fortunate enough to be given a free trip to this cultural city by Access Travels and Tours, and what’s more, we were so lucky to be there for their Independence day! The moment the clock hit 12 midnight, people cheered on each other, watched a short display of fireworks and paraded the city in motorcycles carrying their flag! We’re so lucky to have witnessed that without even knowing that it was about to happen!
You know what they say- when in Malaysia, you shop! Okay, they don’t actually say that. But I do really shop a lot when I’m out of the country! #ThankYouTaxRebates and #ForeignerDiscounts! Malaysia has a really beautiful and huge malls that you could get lost in if you go shop crazy!
Another thing I like to do when I go abroad? EAAAAT! We went to Beryl’s Chocolate World and stocked up on pasalubong for our families. Each kind of chocolate had a free sample, and it’s safe to say we all got sore throats on our way back to the hotel!
I knew I would be walking and shopping a lot, so I made sure to wear a comfortable outfit. Sling bag and flats- a must when travelling. T-shirt and shorts for comfort but spiced up with a cute print, glam necklace and chic fabric and cut!
I also made sure to stop by one of my favorite ramen places- Ippudo! I love their ramen here! It was raining too so having hot steamy ramen was perfect! Their staff is mostly Filipino at this branch, so it was easy to order and ask for their favorites!
For dinner, we googled the must try restaurants of the city and ended up at Bijan. We didn’t know what to expect but were wowed when we saw all the awards this restaurant has gotten over the past few years! When we got our food, none of us talked because we were all busy chowing down! The food was super good, we even ordered seconds!
So glad and fortunate to have this amazing experience shared with my blogger besties. Trips out of town with this bunch always make for fun and crazy memories. Thank you Access Travel and Tours for this one!
