CHILLING OUT AT KLCC AND SKY BAR

KLCC is a cool place to hang out. A group of colleagues and I went there one evening to have dinner here at KLCC.



Despite the expensive bill, the food was 'just okay'. No wow factor and I doubt if I am popping here again.  It was just too average compared to the price.  The only thing we loved was the soup...some seafood tom yum which was delicious...but then it came in just a few spoonfuls in a humongous plate! Other than that...the rest were not exciting :(



We loved walking outside KLCC at night and this is my 3rd or 4th posts on KLCC. With the twin towers illuminated, they are just beautiful with two huge towers with diamonds sparkling at night. Until  Taipei 101 took over in 2004, it was the tallest towers in the world from 1996 to 2003. Outside, there is a huge garden for everyone to stroll around and enjoy the night breeze. I love the sight of these towers and wish to walk on that skybridge connecting both towers.



After dinner, we walked over to this place..my favourite place whenever I am here in KL.  It was a good 10 minutes walk from KLCC to Traders Hotel and on their 33rd floor, you will find this...the SKYBAR. A half-open air bar which another fav hangout for many people. Dressing code is strict and do watch the steps while walking on the edge of the pool. It was interesting to note that all my colleagues lived within the 100km parameter from Kuala Lumpur, but none has been here before. It was a first for them..but I am sure wont be the last.







It's packed on weekends and reservation is required....especially if you want a good seat and view.


So, we booked early to ensure that we sat at the window to get this view. It's the best view ever of the Twin Towers.  By the way, this guy is a very good friend and colleague of mine. We worked together from the day I started work and he will retire soon next year. It seems that we have worked forever and I am so thankful he has been around supporting me for the longest time ever.



Their satay was good, not the best...it used to be the best, but good  is ok for us.



Here are the Twin Towers :)



Thank you everyone for the good wishes...but the flu bug just would not go away, it's lingering at home way much longer than desired.

Have a fab weekend :)
