Silka Cheras Hotel

Another day another side of Kuala Lumpur. Another last minute plan and booking. Cheras is a southeast suburb of KL and the plan was to catch up with an old friend living here but in central KL. Well a quick, simple search for cheap (<$50) 4 star KL hotels came up...

Four Points Puchong Kuala Lumpur

Arrived into Kuala Lumpur early in the morning from Johor. The plan was to probably stay around Sentral but we eventually decided to stay a little further out with little to do anyway. It seemed like a good opportunity to stay at the relatively new Four Points in Puchong. 

Kuala Lumpur – Auckland on Malaysia Airlines Business Class

Yet another route of Malaysia Airlines I have now flown. After overnighting in KL it was an early morning departure to all the way down to New Zealand. The extended flight time to NZ makes this more like a long-haul European service than regional flights within Asia and Australia. An added...

High-tea at Carcosa Sri Negara, Kuala Lumpur

We met up with friends for afternoon tea at the colonial beauty of Carcosa Sri Negara. The hotel harps from the late 1800s, as the house for the Governor of British Malay. Long owned by the British Government, it is now a Malaysian Government property and operates both a hotel...

Rerouting from Nepal: easy Malaysia award change

Last week I made a visit to the local Malaysia Airlines ticketing office in Adelaide. Compared to the arrangement with local carrier Qantas, you forget how useful it is to have a local ticketing office to help sort problems out. Reservations over the phone works fine of course, but there...

Hilton Doubletree Kuala Lumpur

We arrived at KL sentral with every intent on staying at one of the adjacent hotels. Unfortunately I had transferred points from my Amex to SPG for a couple nights only the night before and last minute rates were poor value. It usually takes around 24 hours so decided to wait the 30 mins and...

Sheraton Kuala Lumpur

After the mess of the last few days it was best to lay low and catch up on a lot of sleep. Since the Sheraton KL has been reduced to SPG category 2 it is now quite a cheap reward and the lowest in KL that will give significant benefits...

Booking Singapore to KL somehow ending in Kathmandu

After ZoukOut I still needed a flight this Sunday back from Singapore back to Kuala Lumpur to connect onto my flight to Adelaide. Could of taken one of the many cheap options but understandably getting the flight on Malaysian is convenient as my bags will pass straight through, same terminal etc. By themselves however booking...

MAS Adelaide to Kuala Lumpur again

Today I flew on MH136 ADL-KUL, on a Airbus 330-300 9M-MTE in business class, seat 6K. Flight length: 7:45 hr, 3,530 miles. If that sounds familiar it is, besides taking MAS up to KL many times this year I also flew on MTE in early March albeit on the alternative-day,...
