(Continued from Part 1)
After lunch at a place called Teppanyaki, we continued our first day touring Kuala Lumpur.
We went to two places (and the descriptions below are from their own website):
- The Malaysian National Museum (Muzium Negara), “located at Jalan Demansara, a three storied structure which houses four main galleries allotted to ethnology and natural history. The displays range from free-standing tableaux showing cultural events like weddings, festivals and costumes; to traditional weapons, musical instruments, arts and crafts, ceramics, and flora and fauna.”
- The Kuala Lumpur City Gallery, “is part of the ARCH group’s vision in promoting the country’s heritage and culture. A new tourist magnet, it is situated right in the historical enclave of Dataran Merdeka (Merdeka Square) and houses many attractions in the form of prints, photos and miniatures. Located in a 114 year-old building, this landmark is a must visit for anyone who wants to know all about Kuala Lumpur!”
Dinner was at Nando’s Chicken, located at the Suria KLCC, which itself is located at the base of the Petronas Twin Towers. Nando’s is kind of similar to Peri-peri’s Chicken, with almost the same food choices. Since my beloved M doesn’t want spicy foods, and since I was too tired to choose anything else, we went with the least spicy choice of chicken–the Lemon and Herb.
We didn’t do much after dinner except to walk back to the hotel (which was roughly five-minutes away) and try to get a good night’s sleep. The taxi driver who took us to the hotel from the airport the night before told us that if we wanted to see the Petronas Tower tour, we had to line up very early (think before 7 am) so we could be sure to have tickets. It didn’t sound like we had much of a choice so to be on the safe side, we decided to turn in early.
To be continued.
