Missing Kuala Lumpur

Night panoramic view of Kuala Lumpur from Bukit Permai.

After one month together, Wuan and I had to say our goodbyes again. It is back to the dreary routines. Life in Penang will not be as interesting as it was in Kuala Lumpur. I certainly will miss William and Cynthia’s company. Many evenings we have had dinner together at places Wuan and I would never thought of going. The last evening before we were to leave for Penang, William took us up to Bukit Permai to see the view of the Klang Valley. I will never forget what I saw from up there. It was simply breathtaking.

The many bloggers I met at the Mid Valley Bloggers Meet and PPS 2nd Anniversary Bash made this trip even more memorable. I am planning to make another trip to Kuala Lumpur, most probably after my medical check up in end-August. Hopefully, the condition of my kidneys do not deteriorate further. Eating out is difficult as it is. William, Cynthia and Wuan had to find places where food can be ordered a la carte so that we could get the kitchen to cook food to suit my diet.

  1. There’s still this blog, Pete. We can still keep in touch. We had a great time with you too.

    Your health is most important – better to take care of that first. We could get everyone to install webcams… .

    Ever had anyone tell you you look a bit like Patrick Tse (Sei Kor) from The Shell Game?

  2. Giant Sotong,
    Thanks for your concern. I had fun meeting you all. And yes, I have been told time and again I look like Patrick Tse. There was even an entry by Sinner’s Ark comparing us both.

  3. Kim,
    Next time when I am there, I will start screaming your name! That is a really nice place to stay. You lucky girl.

  4. suanie,
    You so clever wan, know exactly what is in my heart. You don’t miss me meh?

  5. =) My warm wishes to you for you to be in the pink of health when you return in August:)

    A beautiful picture, Peter. πŸ™‚ It was lovely to have to finally meet you.

  6. I hope you’re coping well with the kidney problems.My Dad has been on dialysis for 12 years and I think what kept him going is his faith and determination not to let anything like that to slow him down.Judging from your entries,I know you are of strong character.The diet thingy is just a few of the small bumps in life πŸ˜‰

  7. jayelle,
    Thank you. It was great to have met you too after reading your blog for such a long time before that.

    Thanks. I am doing all I can to maintain my kidney’s health… with a lot of reminding from Wuan. At the same time, I accept the fact that this is a problem prevalent with SCI sufferers.

    I will. Thanks.

  8. SK,
    Thanks. You should go up there and enjoy the view. Nothing beats seeing it with your own eyes.

  9. Hmmm… that photo from bukit permai does look hauntingly familiar… now where have i seen it? πŸ˜‰

  10. KaZ,
    Now I know where that panaromic view of your banner came from. And I have been wondering for the longest time. Too bad when we were up there, the lights at the Twin Towers were already turned off.
