I love traveling out of Singapore to eat good food! KL's food was definitely nothing short of amazing. Was there for around 4 days and i really wanted to extend my trip because i felt i haven't got to try a lot of good food.
This is my 2nd trip out of Singapore with #thepartyinvaders and this time it's to Kuala Lumpur - Malaysia.
We took a 3-4 hour drive from Singapore to KL. Left Singapore at 3AM to avoid jams. Quite happy we didn't have to get stuck in any jams to and fro.
When we reached, we were all dead beat from the ride to KL. Can't imagine how tired the drivers that morning felt!
We checked into...
One Stop Residence
Kompleks Metro Pudu, Jalan Metro Pudu 2
Fraser Business Park
Kuala Lumpur 55100, Malaysia
Most of the hotels/service apartments were fully booked but thank goodness for our friend's uncle for this service apartment! At the lobby, we felt a lil bit scared the rooms would look bad and it'll be scary but when we reached our rooms, we had a rather pleasant surprise! Considering the fact we paid so little, IT WAS ACTUALLY REALLY GOOD. The rooms were so clean - most important! We all got a 2 bed room suite which could fit 4-5 people a room.
When i told my other friends i was going to KL, they recommended a list of places and so, i had a bunch of places in mind to check out but unfortunately, 4 days was definitely not enough to cover half the places on the list. Plus, during this trip, we all partied SO HARD so waking up early in the morning sure wasn't possible. It's like some only went to bed at 8am?? CRAAAAY! Partying in ZOUK KL was so SO much fun! Maybe because we were in a foreign place and could do anything we wanted and not be remembered. LOL. Then after ZOUK, most of us would have an after-party in the room. Madness! That's the #thepartyinvaders for you.

This trip to KL, we didn't really walk much which also means no shopping. Well except at Pavilion where i got some stuff from Forever 21 & Zara. Heard the shopping at Mid Valley Mall and Sungei Wang Plaza is not bad but it's a pity i didn't manage to go there! I think i went there before VERY long ago but can't remember what it's like anymore.
