Round and about Kuala Lumpur

I have been really busy recently, so I haven’t had much time to go about town, or take photos. My other blog on employment is also taking up a lot of my time, and is something I really would like to focus on. So the Klang Valley Travel blog will remain a purely hobby blog, but I […]

Oop noorth again!

One hot weekend in May, I decided I needed to get away from the smouldering dusty atmosphere of KL. For a day trip, the closest thing was Bukit Tinggi, unfortunately. So a friend and I headed there for a day’s escape. The road up was a different than the last time. They closed off the more […]

With a deadline looming, and rainy weather, one Saturday, I prayed hard, and headed off to Putra Jaya and KLIA. It was […]

Bangkok in my nose

I just got back from Bangkok, and boy, was it polluted, unlike my last visit about two years ago. Anyway, the trip to the LRT station, and from KL Sentral to the LCCT and from the LCCT to Bangkok were all smooth. The new airport at Bangkok was also pretty amazing, very brutalist architecture and […]
