Been To Malaysia…O Really….

It’s been almost a month already when we had our vacation in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Even until now, pauses in between work & other activities, I would find myself wondering if I have really got to be in Malaysia. It was as if the 7-day trip went by so fast as an F1 car would drive through 1 lap.

Come to think of it, it was our F1 fanaticism that started this trip in the first place.

My wife and I planned this trip, initially, just to see the 2007 F1 Sepang race. Sooner we’d learn that the minimum number of days our time sharing account would allow us is 1 week. Well, who gets upset over an extended vacation? If there’s anyone, it won’t be us. So to make this a vacation more fun, we convinced her brother and his wife to tag along.

Our trip started on a Good Friday (pun intended).

The airline we got was Airasia. Despite the long drive from Sto. Tomas, Batangas to Diosdado Macapagal Internation Airport we arrived earlier than expected in Clark, Pampanga. From there, our 4-hour flight to KLIA-LCCT started by 1145am. On time.

The flight was smooth and uneventful, as the weather was good. Even with the absence of in-flight entertainment (no TV, no games) the view of the distinct dark Malaysian flight attendants that are beautiful and attractive nonetheless came as a bonus.

Upon arrival at LCCT and upon checking out at Immigration, we were picked by a taxi service that took us to Duta Vista Executive Suite in Persiaran Ledang after an hour of interesting trip. I can still remember when I had to peer through the van’s window when I saw the Petronas Twin Towers dominating the afternoon skyline. “We’re in Malaysia indeed”, I whispered to myself.
