๐Ÿ˜ŽPlanning a trip with my travel buddy!!
โžกWe generally use Kuala Lumpur as our landing base, to board flights to other detinations from there. In the process, we end up exploring Kuala Lumpur too, a day at a time, a li'l at a time.
๐Ÿค”I have had a no. of travel buddies, but so far this guy is my fave - my travel companion n the one I'v been married to for a while now ๐Ÿ˜‰
๐Ÿ˜†Not all companions make a good travel buddy, but this one's for keeps!

My husband is my best travel buddy! Not just because we are married but we have always done everything together. I am glad to say he is definitely my best friend and it's always the most fun with him. ๐Ÿ˜„
๐ŸœDelicious lamb kabsa, chicken mandy and Arabic salad at Al-Khatiri Restaurant Kota Bharu, Malaysia.
๐ŸดThe meat was exceptionally tender, and the thick vegetable broth accompanying the dishes, was to die for!
๐ŸดThis resto easily made it to our top 3 at Kota Bharu, and by far the best Middle Eastern resto here. #kotabharu

This weekend's all about FOOD... after travelling to 3 countries in less than 2 months.. we decided to take a break.. rather.. take it slow.. and explore great eats at our home city Kota Bharu, Malaysia.
We're going to compile a list of our top 5 dine-in options (in no order of preference) serving local or Western food.
1. The Bricklane Cafe
- What: Chicken chop in black pepper sauce, with fried rice
Stay tuned all weekend for more...
Spl thanks to our local friends for taking us to these places we wouldn't have otherwise discovered. :) #kotabharu

The Jetty at Melaka. Don't let this strip fool you. Nope, it's not a jetty point, but a strip full of restaurants. Take a buggy ride right till the end to reach the karaoke club and open-air bar with a gorgeous view of the city ๐Ÿ˜Š You couldn't have figured that out, could you?

GUEST QUESTION
where is the best nasi lemak you ever had?
HOST
Hi.. the best one I have had has been right here at Kota Bharu, Malaysia. The way they pack sambal with flavours and make the accompaniments is a tad different from the rest of Malaysia, slightly sweeter and far more intense.
What about you Yovent Thรฉn ?

Yovent Thรฉn 1 month ago
Yea good idea thou
๐Ÿ—The flavours of Malaysian food are deep and the aromas... intense!! Here's a peep into one of the most perfect compositions โžก Nasi Kukus Ayam Goreng Berempah: Deep fried whole leg, marinated in 14 herbs & spices.. served with Nasi Kukus Perang (healthy steamed brown rice).

This jumbo dessert ๐Ÿ˜
๐ŸงABC or Ais Kacang is an icy dessert commonly found in Malaysia, Brunei and some parts of Singapore too. Literally meaning โ€˜ice beansโ€™, ABC stands for Air Batu Campur. Found almost anywhere and everywhere in Malaysia, it is a perfect way to beat the noon heat and a great substitute to ice-cream and other frozen desserts.
๐ŸงShaved ice with red beans, jelly, fruits, nuts, sweet corn and a lot more โžก https://lyfandspice.com/2015/11/04/abc/ #kotabharu

Most of my friends still don't understand how I have been staying in a hotel for so long, but it has proved to be a wonderful experience. Yes, it has its own cons, but a lot of advantages too ๐Ÿ˜‡ #kotabharu

Had this massive dessert after lunch at SunTwo Restaurant, called ABC or Ais Kacang โžก made of shaved ice, topped with ice cream, floating in a pool of jellies, fruits, red beans, corn and chocolate crispies. Sinful!!! M I guilty? Not quite sure. The dollop of strawberry ice cream nailed it! #kotabharu

Teh Tarik or Pulled Tea competition at my li'l town, Kota Bharu. Although this guy did drop a li'l tea on the floor, he dared to go a notch up by doubling the set. Not an easy act of balance. However, our hotel (Marriott) won the competition. Oopsie! Got no video of the winner trying his hands at pulled tea.
Teh Tarik โžกtea with condensed milk, pulled to arm's length to get the perfect creamy, frothy consistency to the glass. #kotabharu

Malacca river cruise. We loved the cruise by both day and eve as it offers a different feel during the diff hours of the day. Street art is visible in full form during the day time while the beautifully lit hotels along the river twinkle up the water with their blinking glamour after sunset. Anyone been to Malacca?

Mossy Forest at Cameron Highlands โžก derives its name from the blanket of moss surounding the trees. Have you been hiking here? Well, looks like the mist sometimes plays spoilt sport.. however, the hike to the forest is better than the easy well-paved hike within. mossy

The reason why I hike โžก You never know what the trail opens up to.
Parit Falls โžกWhen your hiking trail opens up to this waterfall at Cameron Highlands
๐Ÿ‘€How to get there? โžกJungle trail no. 4 leads to Parit Falls
Though I feel the picture has come out way better than the actual falls, the experience of getting lost in the unmarked trails was brilliant! ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜‰
The most comforting and calming place on earth โžกBoh Tea Plantations. This one was at Sungai Palas, Cameron Highlands. Though we are not allowed to pluck tea leaves, we hiked around the dipping trails and lush shrubs... and ended the journey at the restaurant on a ledge, facing the plantations... ๐Ÿ˜

Changkat/Bukit Bintang on a weekday... Imagine the activity on a weekend ๐Ÿ˜„
This bustling locality is the hub of Kuala Lumpur's nightlife. If you want to chill over a couple of drinks and great food, head here. Beer, whiskey and cocktails are available inevitably everywhere, so here are names for great eats:
-Rockbottom: burgers
-Temptations: chicken tikka
-El cerdo: bbq roasted pig (whole)
-Flam's restaurant: chicken flam
-Opium KL: dumplings, crispy noodles
-Sutra: Indian food

GUEST QUESTION
Where will you recommend to stay and to discover the lifestyles of locals? For a trip like 3 days 2nights?
HOST
I would recommend Penang any day. It has the best street food, home stays and diverse options to look at. Try the ones at Georgetown. The location has easy access to little India, georgetown local eateries, gurney drive (further up) and more.

What about the nightlife in KL?
Lyf&Spice 3 months ago
Oh the nightlife is brilliant. I see you're from Singapore ๐Ÿ˜Š.. Singaporeans love to chill at Marini's at 57 (it's expensive but offers the best view of the city and towers).. or Sky Bar (33rd floor of Trader's Hotel + one of my fave)... for a relaxed and relatively casual night, head to Changkat/Bukit Bintang... where you will find a line up of pubs with the best drinks and food.. unless you want to go clubbing. For that, check out Zouk, Havana or Gravity club besides many others. Oh and for a unique sundowner โžกHeli Bar... :) hope that helps
