II. Kuala Lumpur

July 20, my sister, Yvonne Chua-Lih, and I left Manila for Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, to visit her daughter, Jahzel Lih, and her husband Rolf Beutel. When we reached the airport, terminal 2, we took a train to KL Sentral where Jahzel met us. She took us home, located on the 8th floor of a 14 floor condominium. Their apartment had a small balcony from where you can see part of the city. Today, David Lih, Yvonne's husband, also arrive in Kuala Lumpur, but coming from Taiwan.

July 21, we visited Rolf’s office (Santa Fe Relocation Services). Rolf Beutel is the managing director of Santa Fe Malaysia with offices in Kuala Lumpur and Penang.

July 22, we had an afternoon tea in the posh Majestic Hotel. Supper at Social Bangkar.

July 23, 10:00am, we went to KL Sentral to send off David who was going to Bangkok. Yvonne and I then took a Hop-on Hop-off city tour. We visited the National Palace, National Mosque, Petronas Twin Towers, KL Tower. From KL Tower, we went back to Petronas for a late lunch. Then we just went souvenir shopping inside the Petronas Mall. At around 5:00pm, we met Rolf and Jahzel at the mall's lobby. They took us to the elevator entrance for our 6:00pm trip up the tower.

We took the elevator and went up to level 41, the Skybridge (speed of elevator: 1 story/second). Then to level 83 and changed to a smaller elevator that took us to level 86, the observation deck.

At about 7:00pm, we went to the Roti Boy Bakery inside the Petronas Mall and waited for Jack Lee. Jack is an AIESEC International Volunteer member. He was in our school for 6 weeks to teach our students conversational English. It was very kind of him to invite us for supper. Thank you, Jack.

July 24, we had lunch at Tiffin’s in Mid Valley Mall. The staff was all very friendly Filipinos and the food was delicious. For dessert, we bought a personalized Magnum Ice Cream Bar.

July 25, in the morning, Rolf and Jahzel took us to the Central Market (good place for buying souvenirs). Then we had lunch at Peter Hoe, a very posh souvenir shop hidden somewhere only a connoisseur would know. It also had a really good restaurant inside. I ordered a scallop pasta, the best pasta I ever had. Then we went to China Town nearby. And finally, we went to Royal Selangor, a pewter factory. From there, on our way home, we stopped at the Holy Rosary Church to attend the 5:00pm mass. After mass, we went to Bandar Shopping Centre and ate our last supper in Malaysia at Brotzeit, a German restaurant. Thank you Rolf and Jahzel for our very memorable stay in Malaysia.
