Yesterday we had to fly from KL to Jakarta and back. In the afternoon we visited the Galeri Petronas in the PETRONAS Twin Towers and explored the art work, including Henri Matisse, Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Picasso, Miró and contemporary work by native artists from KL. We had dinner at Sao Nam.
We started with a nice training session in the gym(half past two in the morning Dutch time). Cool down with coffee, croissants and some time at the pool. In the afternoon we went to down town KL by bus. Looking for some vintage items, but we were not in time for this vintage market unfortunately. We will keep that in mind for next time. Because the vintage addresses were located far from the center, we had a nice sightseeing tour with the taxi. We saw the magnificent palace of the King and spotted meanwhile some beautiful architecture on the way back to down town. We had a nice glass of white wine in the trendy rooftop bar Marini’s on 57 with fantastic views of the Petronas towers and excellent hospitality of the staff.
Kuala Lumpur we have contact! We took a nice polaroid with the nice Fujifilm instax mini 8.
Today we started at the pool and after surfing on the internet we found our new goal of the day: we would take a taxi to drive an hour out of town to visit Rot Fai Market. It is also called Train Market and it is a huge vintage market. If you love vintage you have to go to that market! Before we entered the taxi back to the hotel we wanted to take a coffee. It was really weird that we had to leave our flip flops outside the café and got disinfection stuff for our hands before entering the café. Inside the place smelled like there were lots of cats living there. It turned out we had ended up in Makuba Cat Café. The coffee tasted a bit weird after that experience. But worth a visit if you like to hug pets instead of drinking a nice cup of coffee!
After a kind of relaxed flight we arrived in the capital of Thailand. We slept a few hours due to the time difference and drove in a Tuk-tuk in a terrifying journey through the city. Ended up in Khao San Road which is of course a tourist trap. But still nice to have a small snack and watch all backpackers coming by. Theater on the street!
