How’s this for views 🙌 🔥 HOT TIP: when in Kuala Lumpur, you HAVE to check out Heli Lounge Bar. On the rooftop of Menara KH in Bukit Bintang is this bar, which is also used as a helipad during the day. Although, after 5pm it’s no helicopters allowed 🚁🚫 as it’s transformed into a bar where you can watch the sunset, with an aviation-themed cocktail in hand, all while surrounded by a fresh 360degree view of the city. ⏩ Swipe left to see a very out-of-focused pic of me having a great time haha. A metaphor for the night? I wish. More like, the reality of your travel buddy/photo taker not holidaying with you 💔
I LOVED visiting the Thean Hou Temple in Kuala Lumpur. The bright colours and views of the city were amazing! 🙌 But, what I enjoyed most was simply just sitting and watching. Inside the temple, you can see devotees burning joss sticks, kneeling in prayer and leaving offerings at the feet of the statues. There’s also lots of gardens surrounding the temple and even a wedding registry at the bottom of the temple! 🙏🏽 ❤️
10 points to Gryffindor if you can spot me in this pic 🙈
One of my favourite things about Malaysia is how multi-cultural it is. No where is this more evident than in the country’s capital, Kuala Lumpur. The city is home to people of various Eastern religions and Muslims, so there are a lot of religious sites that can be visited. - While there, I decided to make a morning out of it, so after visiting the Hindu Batu Caves (see previous post), the next stop on the itinerary was the Thean Hou Temple. Built in Oriental style, the temple is a monument to the Chinese Sea Goddess and encompasses Buddhism, Taoism and Confucianism.
Chasing waterfalls even on the other side of the world 💦 - On another note, I recently made the change from DSLR to Mirrorless for travelling and HOLY CRAP, I am so impressed! I got the Panasonic GX9 and it is UH-MAZING! As you may/may not know, I keep editing of my images to a minimum; rather I prefer to practice my photography skills and also, why edit nature 🤷🏽♀️ - Anyways, that’s all from me today - Happy Friday-eve! 🙃
About 40 minutes north of Kuala Lumpur is the Hindu Batu Caves Temple. A popular tourist site, thanks to the ‘Gram, the temple complex is unlike any other Hindu temple I’ve visited before. The bright colours, giant Ganesh and several cave temples make for a unique experience. We were lucky and avoided the massive crowds of tourists by arriving early (around 8am). However, by the time we left (at around 9:30) it was already starting to crowd, with people fighting for space on the colourful stairs for their insta-pics 🤦🏽♀️ They always say... early bird gets the worm 🐛😉
