Johor, Malaysia – Imagination has always been the key to enjoying every little thing we do when we were kids. From playing with cars, to battling evil foes with our action figures, and even pretending to be on a swimming pool when we are only taking a dip in a pail of water. It is rare to get in touch with our inner child when we step into the professional world. Or is it..? Not when there is this awesome place called Legoland! cue “Everything is Awesome” music!
Selangor, Malaysia – Located just minutes away from Kuala Lumpur, the iconic Batu Caves is a place you shouldn’t miss on your visit to Malaysia.

Besides visiting KL’s Little India, this is a good place to see and experience the Indian-Malay culture.

Sepang, Selangor, Malaysia – This is the first from our long-overdue-blog-post list. A lot of things have happened already. Thus, we’ll find time to do catch-up posts in the coming days. Let’s start with our very first F1 experience.
Since I started driving, I’ve always dreamed of having my own sports car and join a motorsport. But, it’s too far out to actually come true. Thus, I crossed it out from the list (for now) and just stick to something more realistic – to experience Formula 1, Live!
Georgetown, Penang, Malaysia – Since it was a long weekend we had 3 days and 2 nights to enjoy Penang. Actually, just 1 whole day, the others were half days because of travel to/from Kuala Lumpur but enough to see most of the must-visit places.
Getting around Penang is easy and convenient. Easy: Penang is a small island where all interesting places are accessible and well connected. Convenient: You can roam around yourself by bus or rent a car, trishaw, motorcycle or bicycle without getting lost.
Georgetown, Penang, Malaysia – Easily one of the finest places we’ve been to. It’s small, but it’s filled with attractions. Every corner of every street, there’s something to see or to do. It’s in a somewhat isolated island, but it’s rich with history. Almost every land you step on has its story. And among the things that define its cultural personality, are its very appealing murals!
Georgetown, Penang, Malaysia – Chinese New Year (CNY) is perhaps one of the biggest cultural events in the world and the best way to experience the festivities is to go where the festivities are held. Well, besides going to China (for obvious reasons), here in Malaysia, you have an option to go to Penang, Melaka or Kuala Lumpur‘s China Town as these places have large Chinese residents population. As for us, we chose the colurful city of Georgetown, Penang (also known as Pulau Pinang).
Berjaya Hills, Bukit Tinggi, Pahang, Malaysia – As mentioned in our previous post, there’s nothing much to do in Colmar Tropicale besides taking pictures and to get the most out of your visit, you might as well go to their Japanese village.
Berjaya Hills, Bukit Tinggi, Pahang, Malaysia – It was my birthday weekend and as part of our yearly tradition, I got to choose where we wanted to spend this day. Well, I always wanted to spend it in Paris, France — why? it’s every girls dream and always been my dream destination! But, since me and my genie (Raphael) can’t make it come true this year (maybe next year? 🙂 ), we just settle to something-French at the moment and hence, we went to Colmar Tropicale Resort.
Putrajaya is a model township that has been constructed with detailed planning, innovative urban design and great respect for the environment. It is a city with a vision that also promises to keep the nation’s heritage for the country’s present and future generations. Its beautifully landscaped roads and parks as well as modern building are clearly reflected in the theme “City in a Garden.”www.ppj.gov.my
Putrajaya, Malaysia – We started our tour a little late after lunch to keep out of the harmful midday sun. The sun sets late in Malaysia (it stays light up until about 7pm) thus taking late afternoon tours are no problem.
Since we took the tour via car and it’s our first driving experience around the city, we brought a map (paper map) from Putrajaya Tourism Office, even if we have smartphones for GPS. We don’t want to be stranded in the middle of the highway (talk about slow connection to Google Maps). 🙂
Our first stop was the famous Seri Wawasan Bridge. This is one of the eight signature bridges connecting Putrajaya precincts, a must see at night as they are illuminated with changing colored lights. We arrived there in the afternoon so there are no lights yet so we weren’t able to appreciate its marvel to the fullest. Not to take anything away from it though, because it still looks amazing. From there you can see a view of the lake and the city. After a couple of pictures we continued driving.
