tourist in kl

Hi! I'm backkkk! Lovely to be home. Our first trip with the kids for the year and they enjoyed it. My hubby's two nieces joined us as their parents were off in Miri for Shell's annual dinner. So there were 8 of us altogether including mom-in-law.
We stayed at Nikko Hotel at Jalan Ampang. Nice hotel.



Actually my sister was there too the whole family. Didn't plan anything for group outing. We didn't want to repeat Genting visit and everybody's been to Sunway enuf times, beside we stayed at different hotel so in the end we head separate ways, meeting once in KLCC. (actually what in each other's mind was, mega sale time! who need other planning?)
Traveling with small kids who couldn't stand walking & hanging around for hours at shopping malls obliged us to divide shifts. Most times, it's hubby who got to baby-sit (hihihi..tq love..). I would go out with MIL and the 2 anak dara and he stayed with the 3 kids going swimming, playing games or whatever it was they fancy. Free hourly shuttle bus service to KLCC and Bukit Bintang so it was very convenient for us.
On the third day, hubby decided to let the kids try the tour double decker bus we so enjoyed in Singapore. I had misgivings at first knowing KL is unlike Singapore, fearing we would regret it as we would be exposed to polluted air and traffic jams.


But when the bus arrived, I immediately changed my mind. It was very clean, smell new and airconditioned. Only a small area at the back is open-decked. The scheduled timing was a bit off due to KL's traffic but wasn't too bad. The kids love it. They thought it so cool.
Jadi kami mengada-ngada lah jadi tourist sekejap. Pergi round KL , to all the areas in KL we've never been and never bothered, Chinatown, Little India, Bird Park, Museum, etc.

Some pics at the Museum :-



I'm not a keen photographer (read:pemalas), so they aren't many to load here.
I love the hotel where we stayed. I love the spa. Named Sompoton Spa, all the masseurs are Sabahan. I got a good extra nice full body massage on our last night. (aku memang suka self-pampering ni). Warm bath, massage, scrubs are my things. They rid me of all the aches from lugging things and walking too much.
To be continued....
