Where to go in Kuala Lumpur (KL), Malaysia: 2009

Last Minute Cheap Hotel

Traveling Hong Kong and looking for the right hotel at the right price ? I would recommend you to book at http://www.cheaperthanhotels.com/HongKong/.

They do have a elegance and user friendly user-interface website. You can perform a search of all hotels available by region, by hotel or by map. You even can sort the search result by price, alphabetical & rating.

Payment can be made via major credit cards like AMEX, VISA, MASTERCARD, JCB, Diners Club, etc.

The best part of the website is you just need to pay for the minimum amount of deposit only instead of full payment during your booking, the balance is then paid directly to the hotel upon your arrival.

If you are traveling to China, then you can logon to below website:

Thean Hou Temple - More pics

just to post some photos taken during Chinese New Year at Thean Hou Temple.

Thean Hou Temple

The Thean Hou temple is located on a hilltop of Robson Hill overlooking Jalan Syed Putra (nearby Mid Valley), one of the largest Chinese temples in South-East Asia. Every year during Chinese New Year, the temple will be crowded with prayers and tourists.

Pasar Malam aka Night Market

The 'pasar malam' (night market) is crowded with local folks, especially chinese community due to the coming Chinese New Year festive season. Stalls here start to sell decorative items and local delicacy for the festive season. This year, the Chinese New Year fall on 26th Jan. It is an Ox year according to chinese zodiac, and chinese community believe that ox is a symbol of strength and determination. I hope that the arrival of the year of ox will bring us progress and good fortune.

Malaysians from all walk of life (young, old, rich, poor) like to visit Pasar Malam due to the variety of foods (kebab, nasi lemak, yong-tau-fu, apam balik), local fruits (durian, nangka, mangoes). You will also find some cheap replica watches, handbag and clothes. Indeed it is a great experience to visit Pasar Malam.

Travel KL - Google Maps

Adgitize your web site.Suddenly came to my mind to travel KL using Google Maps. A different way to travel by just staying at home with the help of technology. You can zoooom into streets of the locations you intended to visit. That is cool, right? Here are some screenshots:

OMG, now i am lost in Bangsar, on the way to Bandar Utama. Luckily, google maps can assist me to find my way. All i need to do is just key in where am i, and my destination. Google maps will show detailed direction. I tested and confirmd the directions given by google maps is accurate.

Next, you can try google earth. Different from google maps, earth will show you the image of any places on earth and 3D view of terrain of a place.

1 Utama

1st day of year 2009, i went to 1 utama shopping centre for some bargain hunting. It was so crowded, i'll describe as "people mountain people sea". There are some new outlets opened since my last visit like BBQ chicken, Takoyaki & New York New York Deli. I believe 1U has something for every visitors ranging from shopping, dining, entertainment to natural. There is a tropical rainforest with suspension bridge built-in. It is definitely one of my favorite destination.

Movie: Australia

Recently watched the movie 'Australia' at GSC, 1U from 9.30pm - 12am (stil awake after so loooong until the ending). It was a 2.5Hour lengthy movie, packed with action, adventure & romance. I'll say worth for $$$.
