  1. Things To Do In Kuala Lumpur

    Viewing 360 degrees view of Kuala Lumpur from a helipad.

    It was quite a climb but we made it all the way up to the 36th floor of the helipad, a large area with chairs and tables spread around it and a 360 degrees view of our beautiful Kuala Lumpur city. You could watch the beautiful sunset and have drinks with friends until night falls.

    Kuala Lumpur Bird Park for Nature Lovers

    Our local Kuala Lumpur Bird Park which is the world’s largest free-flight walk-in aviary! The entire bird park is sprawled across 21 acres of verdant valley terrain and divided into different zones such as the Free-Flight Zone, Hornbill Park, mini aviaries.

    What I love about this place is that you can see the peacocks, hornbills walking around freely as you roam the area. It is also very well kept. If you love nature and birds, this would definitely be your thing.

  5. Things To Do In Paris

    In Love with the Louvre

    Every time the bus enters the Louvre, I felt like I was thrown into a time warp where knights with their silvered armor stand guard on their white horses. There were no knights in shining armor of course but there was the famous glass pyramid like dome in the middle of the Louvre which was made popular by the Da Vincci Code movie.

    Before the Louvre became a museum, it started out as a fortress and after that became a resident palace before it was turned to a resident of the arts. The Louvre houses many arts, sculptures, installations, paintings and jewelry from the French Revolution, Napoleon, Louis XIV, major events in history, travel related, the art of portraiture and landscapes.

    Touring Paris On The Batobus

    It was the right time to try out the Batobus boat from Seine river to the Eiffel Tower. This was inclusive in the Open Bus Tour ticket that we purchased when we first got here. From River Seine there were 8 stops altogether starting with Champs Elysees which we had already visited the day before so we decided not to get off there.

    The Great La Mezquita (Mosque)

    The mosque or La Mezquita is Cordoba’s main monument. Works on its’ construction started soon after Abd al-Rahman the first took over the Emirate. It’s most ancient foundations were built over remains of the primitive Visigothic basilica of San Vicente. The Cathedral which was built in the heart of the Mosque when the Christian conquered Cordoba, presently stands in the middle of an impressive forest of Moorish arches.

    Museo Torre de la Calahorra

    Across the Guadalquivir River and 15 minutes from La Mezquita was the Museo Torre de la Calahorra which looked like a castle from where we stood. Made of red bricks and stones, the Museum had very little windows which made me concern about air ventilation but we did discover other openings and windows on the other side of it. This Roman bridge that we crossed was restored several times during the Andalusian period. It was also a symbolic figure of crossing time and introducing the traveler to the History of the Museum collection of al-Andalus.

    The Alcazar was a fortified palace complex of residential and public areas, with gardens, palaces, administrative areas, baths, patios and the royal cemetery. Its’ origin goes back to Visigoth times (6th – 7th centuries).

    Some texts referred to it as the Palace of Don Rodrigo, its last Visigoth king in Spain. The eastern facade has survived from the original palace (the facade of the Episcopal Palace) as part of the north facade. From the year 785 onwards, it became te residence of Emirs and Caliphs.

  10. Things To Do In Bangkok

    Shop til You Drop in Bangkok

    Shopping is the last thing on my mind whenever I travel anywhere but for our recent trip to Bangkok, the game plan changed and I was thrown into an adventure involving the bahts that we brought along with us.

    This exciting and adventurous city was a shopping paradise for those who want to shop for wholesale goods at a cheap price from high end shopping to the street markets. Be wary of your spending though and make sure you have enough money to bring you back home after all that shopping.

    Levain Boulangerie Bakery

    The cafe cum bakery lies in this private road which opens up to a row of small buildings and a colonial style bungalow with a stone oven popping out in the front. How is it that this place reminded me so much of the cafes in Paris? They would bake the bread fresh from the oven and put them out on the counter before it’s arranged neatly in the woven baskets. It does smell wonderfully good.
