Kuala Lumpur...through my eyes
With so many different cultures mixing together, the nightlife is anything but dull in Kuala Lumpur. Over the last few years, the buzzing Jalan Sultan Ismail - Jalan P Ramlee strip has become the place to be. Poppy Garden, located below Passion is one of the hottest nightspot in town and a house of ill repute. It became my favorite place to be; with a great crowd, good R&B music and a cozy, plush & inviting atmosphere. The decor is of a mixture of Zen and the Tropics, dimly lit but adds to a nice ambiance to the whole setting. My first time to Poppy was to celebrate Halloween at its themed party, Temptation, with Ju and Al all dressed-up in red and black! Having our very own bottle of ABSOLUT Vodka and a jug of cranberry, the alcohol consumption went on all night until closing. There, we met up with Ju's cousin & friends and with them they brought a bottle of Jack Daniels to the table. The second occasion was with Kr, Na and Ph; where I officially became a year older and drank two shots of tequila to celebrate. Other close-by spots worth checking-out include The Beach Club, Nuovo, 12 SI, Rum Jungle and Thai Club. There was another club that JU talked about but was not able to go - Luna Bar at the top of Menara PanGlobal. It's an open air pool side club with ambient music and awesome views of KL skyline. I guess that will be the spot to hit on my next vacation!
On my first night out with the gals, we met for dinner and drinks at Souled Out Cafe. It's located in Sri Desa Hartamas with a good selection of food & beverages and friendly staff. Not a really bad place to hang out with your good old buddies and have a drink! As the night lingered on, we decided to shift locations to Bangsar for some bar-hopping and non-stop drinking fest! Bangsar is known as one of Kuala Lumpur's premier nightspots, boasts a variety affordable late-night entertainment.
Telawi Street Bistro (TSB) was our first stop. It wasn't crowded so we headed upstairs and sat ourselves at the bar. I was told that their homemade vodka shots was the must to try. Hmmm! With that said...my cousin ordered my first shot for me ~ cilipadi flavor! Bare in mind, I can't eat cilipadi (the name is derived from the small chilies which diminutive nature will surprise you with the intensity of the hot chilli that burns the tongue) so it was rather a cool yet unpleasant experience. As soon as I was done with that shot, the bartender handed me a tall glass of ICE WATER to cool off! The second time around, I made sure I ordered my own flavor, and decided to give LYCHEE a try. It was damn good with the vodka! YUMMY! So as you can see, I've grown to love vodka ~ again. Then we walked down Telawi Street to another bar (I forget what it's called) and stayed there the rest of the night talking, dancing and drinking vodka-cranberry.
My next night out took me to Naili's, located in Sentul for dinner. I ordered its famous Nasi Lemak with Chicken Rendang (chicken in coconut milk) and a nice soothing Mango Flavored juice.
After dinner, Co and myself headed out to PJ and ended up at Waikiki Bar. We both were trying to call the rest to come out and join us but nobody seemed interested. In the end, Ju and Ka did finally come and join us. We sat in the back, by the pool table...drinking and listening to the live band play some cool tunes. Time never fails to speed up just a little when you're having fun!
The last club we all finally partied on was at Zouk Club along Jalan Ampang. For those of you familiar with the original Zouk in Singapore, will know what to expect at Zouk KL. It's considered as an another "not-to-be-missed" happening club in Kuala Lumpur, divided into two ~ The Mainroom and Velvet Underground.

"So you want to know me? Romantic and logical ~ Loyal and always true ~ Funloving crazy and very quiet when needed ~ Sensible and down to earth...to sum it up, I guess I'm pretty much a "nice girl", hopefully in a good way, who's also a bit of a geek"
Here I am as perfect as I'm ever going to be.
You'll see, love me for me.
Stick around, I'm not the kind of girl you wanna leave.
