visit Petronas

Filed under: travel — Tags: , — mat @ 3:15 pm

The good things today, got our tickets for the bus ride to Cameron’s Highlands and visited the Petronas towers. We made it just in time even started 2 hrs before the appointment from our hotel. It was great, first stop at skywalk 41 st floor (170 mtr above sea level) 

and second stop at visitors platform 83rd platform. Stunning view over KL.

The windows will be cleaned from the outside as well, it takes half a year for one tower. If you need a job which gives you some adrenaline you may apply. 

Took the public transportation back , done within 30 min. Met a young german couple , the knew how to order an Uber cab but had no idea what need to be seen in KL. 

Went to a chinese restaurant for late lunch and i ordered pork. Special _whatever_ pork. I got deep fried pork fat. What a happy meal.

Tomorrow will go to Tanah Rata, hiking and relaxing …. keep you posted for sure.

Kuala Lumpur

Filed under: travel — Tags: — mat @ 1:15 pm

We arrived in time, but took us nearly 2 hrs to get to the hotel. So 6 pm is a perfect time for dinner. a million food stalls in the neighborhood so we choose a location which was recommended by the guard. Food was great , malay style. Nasi Laksam Ayam which is a popular national dish. 

And garlic naan bread. what you see is garlic. Pieces!!! Cutted not smashed!!

But the best thing at the D’Majestic hotel is the pool. Have a look and I’m right there with a Tiger beer ;) You may see the Petronas as well, illuminated.

bought tickets online for tomorrow 7 pm to get up to visitor platform .

Kuala Lumpur – and back to Germany

Filed under: travel,work — Tags: , , — mat @ 8:51 am

Flew to KL from HK, never had the experience before in an A 380. And it was great. Amazing to see this huge bird from the inside, no noise, unable to feel the smooth airborne, really great. Flight took around 3 hrs. Hotel in KL was located directly in KLCC. pretty nice rooms, good breakfast buffet, pool. Nothing else needed. Impiana Hotel Sunday I watched the French Open final, Rafa wons and he becomes immortal for the tennis sport after winning 8 times. Had some Tiger beers and a 50 inch TV on a half open terrace bar at 15th floor with the illuminated Petronas Towers behind me. Great. Monday work with our stuff to train and afterwards went outside KL to meet a swiss guy, he also runs a business to provide professional services for open source software. And he plays tennis as well so we had a 2,5 hrs match which he wons. Remember, 32° C outside, humidity very high, not my own racket and hard court instead of sand. I did my best :) Afterwards we had a nice chat before I went back to my hotel. Tuesday internal stuff as well and at night dinner with my colleagues. Fantastic food, Tiger beer and business talk as well. Let´s see what future brings.
Flying back to HK early morning on Thursday. I choose the Regal Airport Hotel coz my flight back was scheduled for Friday morning 7:30 am. Doesn´t make sense to stay at Kowloon or HongKong area. Took the airport express train to meet my colleague once again. He brought a new candidate for our HK brunch in and we talked with that guy. Not that bad at all. At this time my stomach starts a revolution. Not sure where it comes from but I felt so bad and my belly was like a huge bubble. So strange. it was a horrible night and when I got up at 5 am I felt tired and knackered. And so many hours in front to spent in a plan…….
I landed in Munich Friday night and my beloved wife picked me up. So great to see her with a rose in her hands waiting for me at the arrival hall. I surprised her with some gifts and presents and well, even the plan was a little bit different I went to bad coz of my stomach. I hope it becomes better soon, seems like a kind of virus infect I brought back home.
After all it was nice to back out for business again after no travelling for last 6 month. And glad to be home, if I could do that every half a year it´s fine.
