That was not our original plan but then again, me and my boyfriend are always on the go. Saying "NO" to an adventure is a BIG NO NO.
What really happened?
We took the 1st flight out from Singapore and the last flight out from KL of Jetstar on the same day. It means we only had a couple of hours to see the city. Approximately 10 hours.
|Looks like Eurail (haven't tried that yet, seen in picts only)|
|OUTside view of the museum|
First stop was the National Museum of Malaysia or the Muzium Negara (Suggested by Chito, my artsy fartsy boyfriend). It is just behind the KL Sentral, 5-8 mins walk, crossing the Express way without pedestrian lane. Try this secret way behind the Hilton Hotel KL :) That is adventure!
After the museum, next to our itinerary was the Masjid Negara. According to the receptionist (let's call her Ate) in the museum, it is just NEAR the area. Walking distance. It was just 10am anyway and we were still starting the tour, so, we WALKED. All we had for logistics were our map from the airport and our street smart skills :)
Along the way, we saw this beautiful building which is the KTM Berhad, one of the KL's train service providers.

Across the KTM building is the Masjid Negara. After 2.5km of walking (Ate's definition of near) is the Masjid Negara.All visitors must remove their shoes before entering the mosque. And remember, visitors are not allowed to put down anything on their holy ground like tripod.
|Women are required to cover their hair and obviously, the whole body :)|
|The Holy Ground. Off limits to us|
|Thanks to auntie who took this picture perfect shot of us! :)|
|We love EO (each other) haha|
650 m away (if you know the way, which we didn't. So the it was stretched to 800m. hehe ) is the Masjid Jamek MRT. We took this MRT going to Plaza Rakyat station and walked to Petaling Jaya which is the Chinatown area.
|Rapid KL touched screen ticket vendo machine|
|RM 52 = PHP 780|
Power and energy shoot to 100% again.
We had leisurely walk around Chinatown area and went to the KL Central Market where Chito drooled.
|Peataling Jaya area|
|Ayun oh! May bandila ang Pinas! :)|
|Pasilio 2 among others|
|Works of art around the area|
|Was it under maintenance? I was so disappointed to see ONE tower only. Where' s the other one? I felt sad for Chito as he will not be able to see the TWIN towers.|
|Until we went closer . I was very very wrong. hahaha|
