Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia Day 1

Soaking the beauty of cave villas

Hi Everyone, πŸ™‚

Here’s my first post from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. πŸ™‚ Malaysia is around 3 hours ahead of India. So It’s 1:30 am here right now. πŸ™‚ We reached here super early morning. So we caught up with quick breakfast and quick nap and then quickly headed off to our sight seeings.

The first stop was Batu Caves. It’s a series of cavesΒ and cave temples and a popular sight seeing amongst tourists. We had to climb 272 steps. Not an easy feat because one, it was raining today and two, the steps were steep. The statue you see in the pics below is a statue of Murun. Acc to wikipedia “Standing at 42.7 m (140 ft) high, the world’s tallest statue of Murugan, a Hindu deity, is located outside Batu Caves, near the city of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The statue, which cost approximately 24 million rupees, is made of 1550 cubic metres of concrete, 250 tonnes of steel bars and 300 litres of gold paint brought in from neighbouring Thailand.”

On our way back, we took a tour to the Cave Villas. It was such a scenic beauty created Β in the middle of nowhere. You walk on the bridge, enjoy the view of pond full of colourful fish and head towards the caves. The first one was reptile cave. I seriously hated it. The sight of reptiles freak me out. πŸ˜› Then as I gathered my strength and started seeing the animals, I felt so sad of them. πŸ™ There was little turtle trapped in the pond. It was struggling to swim but couldn’t because there was no space. The huge fish were kept in little water…so on and so forth. I somehow managed the walk. There were colorful parrots waiting after you come out of the cave. They totally make your day. Though the same sad story is true for them all but they are soooo cute, you couldn’t help but fall in love with them. Two of them sat on my shoulder and then made their way up on my hat and started perching there. πŸ˜›

Sanjeev and I later headed to the Pavillion Mall Β and Bukit Bintang. We kept walking, did a bit of shopping and ended the day in the most amazing way. you have to check the last bit of pics in this post. πŸ™‚

It was a fab day and Sanjeev has captured every moment so gorgeously. We have still to decide what we have to do tomorrow. But I’d keep you posted on my Facebook and Instagram. πŸ™‚

Good Night! πŸ™‚

  12. Nandini says:

    Love the outfit, it’s putting me in the holiday mood at work πŸ˜€ this post makes me nostalgic, I went to KL and Singapore with my parents back in 2001, like just after the 9/11 thing happened. Batu Caves is amazing, that huge statue hadn’t been made yet at that time..I remember the Koi fish pond though πŸ™‚ and there was no reptile cave, that looks so cool! Love the birds pic, reminds me of Jurong in Singapore, you should def make a trip there too!
    The sign about MH370 makes me sad πŸ™ it’s so scary, this whole thing..how can a plane just vanish like that! I really hope they are found soon, can’t imagine what the passengers’ families are going through.

    P.S. are those metallic outfit waley guys real or statues? @[email protected]

    very cute pics indeed Rati, loved the one where two birds are sitting on your hat :):)

  19. eswari kalugasalam says:

    You are in MY city πŸ™‚ Thank you for appreciating Kuala Lumpur. The air is shrouded in sadness of MH370 but we live in hope. Love that I am able to see KL through your eyes. Thank you!

  20. Rati says:

    Thank you sooo much everyone. πŸ˜› Damn! about the date but I’d keep it as a happy memory. :))

    Thank you eswari. I lovved your city. It’s beautiful. I hope I got to explore much of it. Need to make another trip soon. And I was so touched seeing the spirit of people for MH370. There were thousands of cards people had written for the passengers and crew members. Not something that you get to see very often. :))

    • eswari kalugasalam says:

      Yes! do discover my city more. There are so many layers to it and each more interesting than the last. I think I have become immune to it and to have you take the pictures with your radiant smiles, beautiful outfits and positive energy, I am going to rediscover KL too πŸ™‚ Strength in the face of adversity – that is the underlying thought of MH370. Be beautiful always !

  21. Savita says:

    Certainly a fun trip Rati, I’m also planning a trip to Malaysia-Kuala Lumpur.

  22. Aru says:

    Lovelyyy pics. Very touristy πŸ™‚ captured the entired mood superbly. That monkey looked like an old man with a long white moustache. Hahaha

  23. hira khan says:
