The 188 Suites hosted by CoBnB is a pretty great apt located in the KLCC Area. Just a 8 min walk from the Monorail stop Bukit Nanas and a 10-15 min walk to the Twin Towers and the KLCC Suria Mall.

LaLaport Kuala Lumpur Malaysia Does Chinese New Year 2023 

If you follow me on social media I am sure you have noticed that I love LaLaport Japanese Mall.  It is soooooo nice.  

For their first anniversary they are doing a double celebration with Chinese New Year.

I have done several videos of the Decorations and Displays that I will link here. They are fabulous.

Wow What a Find

We took a walk in Little India Brickfields area of KL today. Super easy area to get to by public transport. Just go to Sentral KL station.  Go into Sentral Mall and head toward the Monorail.  There is a covered elevated crosswalk that will set you down at the outside edge of the area.  There are plenty of local food stalls, hawkers and restaurants.  Some lovely fountains and street art as well.  I will do a separate post about that later as there is lots to tease the senses. However the highlight of the day was lunch at Nadia Café.  It was a delight.  

LaLaport Japanese Mall Kuala Lumpur Malaysia

We had a great visit to the huge Lalaport Japanese Mall in the Bukit Bintang Area of Kuala Lumpur. There is so much going on here. A roller skating rink, cat petting facility, food all over the place, stores, Japanese experience etc. Plus there was a Wadaiko Japanese Drum Show for the New Year. So much fun.

Happy New Year 2023 from Kuala Lumpur Malaysia

Thank you so much for everyone who keeps up with my Blog. I really do appreciate it and I hope the best for all in 2023.

We had a wonderful time at the KLCC New Years Eve Laser Light Show. I tried to get a video of one of those super cool….”hey it is us at”  videos you see all over on social media.  But….. you can only work with what you have got. lol What I got was a video that is a perfect representation of how our life works. lol Have a fabulous New Year.

We found a Taco Bell! Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Well we had to go…it is a rule when you are in a foreign land that you must go to the fast food places from your home country to compare and contrast.  At least that is Jeffrey’s rule.  To be honest I think he just wanted Tacos…lol  To the counter we went.  It looked right with all the branded images and outfits.  The ordering was a bit of a thing.  I have never been asked so many questions about a number 1 meal (2 Supreme Tacos and chips or fries)….ummm fries with tacos…no thank you.  But then the questions started….

Trip to Ya Nui Beach at the tip of Phuket, Thailand

We wandered out to the beach and it was beautiful….small but beautiful.  There were just a few people who were lying around on towels or sitting in the shade of the palm trees.  I mean just perfect.  We selected our spot and laid out our towel and within 5 min it started pouring down rain…lol.  So the entire beach gathered their items and dispersed mostly to scooters. We went across to one of the restaurants.  It was a delight beautiful garden atmosphere.  That is when I noticed the Black Bat Wing Orchid….casually sitting in a pot near a table.

Thai Cooking Class in Phuket Thailand

Food in Thailand is like a religion. I am not kidding. The food here is phenomenally delicious, fresh, healthy and inexpensive.

So if you find yourself in Thailand you should do yourself a favor and take a cooking class. Make sure it includes a trip to the local market for ingredients. The market is an amazing treat in itself full of color, scents and the sounds of Thailand.

Big Buddha on Nakkerd Hill in Phuket Thailand 

One of my favorite places in Thailand to visit is the Big Buddha above Karon. This is an amazing and very calm place to visit. The big Buddha of Phuket Thailand’s official name is Phra Phutta Ming Mongkol “the Cherished Auspicious Lord Buddha atop Nāga Hill” . It is located at the very top of Nakkerd Hill. Construction began in 2004 and is the 3rd tallest Statue in Thailand. The Big Buddha statue is 45 meters (148 feet) tall and 25.45 meters (83.5 feet) wide and is made of concrete and covered with Burmese white marble.
